Between Provence and the Cevennes, 18 km from Vallon Pont d'Arc and the famous Gorges of the Ardèche, and besides the quiet village of Bessas, the charming "mas" welcomes you for stays or weekends of relaxation and discovery.
Le mas de la Blanche is a fine old stone country house built in the 17th century onwards, which has been an inn, a farm and a "magnanerie" for the raising of silkworms. Spacious and original layout have matched a contemporary design with traditional architecture.
The lay-out of the living room still leaves space for conviviality, to have a cup of tea or coffee, or a cold drink, and to chat beneath the vaulted ceiling.

Between provence, the Cevennes mountains, the Ardeche plateau and the garrigue of Gard, the “mas” is between one and two hours drive of the natural beauty of Mont Gerbier de Jonc (source of the Loire), the lake is Issarles, the National Parc of the Cevennes, and the coast of the Camargue; and of historical and cultural life of Nîmes, Arles, Aix en Provence, Avignon and Orange.
Nearer are Uzès and the villages of Gard (Barjac, Goudargues, Anduze), Aubenas, and the villages of Ardèche (Vogue, Balazuc, Bannes) where with their history and architecture you can enjoy the charm of local food and antique markets, visit the vineyard and discover the products of the area.
Remarkable natural sites (Pont d’Arc, Gorges de l’Ardèche, Aven d’Orgnac and the valley of the river Cèze) are ideal for canyoning, canoeing and speleology. Cycling, walking, horse-riding and golf are excellent way to see the natural landscape and countryside.
