A stay at La Donzelenche

the Luech


a courtyard



Part of the 'mas' is permanently inhabited. The guest's quarters comprise three authentic Cevenol 'gîtes' (holiday homes) accomodating two, four, eight visitors respectively, serveral 'chambres d'hôte' guestrooms as well as a gite d'étape (stop over). Each has its own character, is spacious, comfortable and stylishly decorated.

The 'gîtes' are comfortable and well equiped for you to enjoy your stay in complete autonomy but you can also make reservations if you want for a tasty dinner with your hosts or rent your bedlinnen so as to travel somewhat lighter. Staying in a Chambre d'hôte most everything is taken care of, you will find your bed made and towels provided at your arrival. In the morning you can enjoy your breakfast outside on one of the lovely terraces or inside at the 'table d'hôte' depending on the weather. On reservation you can enjoy a takeaway lunch and/ or  tasty dinner at the table d'hôte or visit one of the  local restaurants. 

A stay at the gîte d'étape provides you with a nice, comfortable and affordable stop-over. For a one night stay in budget formula, a comfortabel bed in a nice dormatory, the hikerlounge with its small kitchenarea as well as a wonderfull terrace under the grapevine are at your disposal. You can make your own breakfast/ meal or if you prefer make reservations for the table d'hôte. For a short stay in comfort formula, you can rent one of the lovely guestsrooms with sheets and towels provided and you can opt for our table d'hôte services if you want.

There is a launderette where you can wash, dry and iron your clothes, and there's a small shop that sells home-made produce and locally manufactured articles, some straight from the workshop of the mas. Wifi is available.

Outside, the courtyards and terraced gardens provide romantic terraces to enjoy the sun or lounge in the shade. You can enjoy the calm in privacy, or spend some time with other guests.

On our slow-eco-campsite on the banks of the brook, you can enjoy a stay in nature in a 'glampingtent' or with your own camping gear.

The mas frequently is the centre of activities like 'portes ouvertes', exhibitions, courses, workshops, seminars and soirees, and in the ancient kitchen at the heart of the main building, tasty 'tables d'hôte' are served regularly.

A stay at La Donzelenche is a treat in itself..

See the morning mist slowly lift from the mountainside on your early walk, smell the odours of thyme and oregano, see squirrels and badgers cross your path while the echoes of a woodpecker's knocking ring through the forest. Breathe in, feel whole. Enjoy the lovely Mediterranean climate and its overwhelming natural beauty during the day. When night falls, wander through the mas under the stars and the shimmering lanterns within its enchanted walls, and enter a world where the nightingale weaves its spell and time ceases to exist.
