Our guest house with swimming pool and garden is located 8 km from Uzès, in the heart of the charming little village of Aubussargues.
From the house, you can easily cross the Pays d'Uzès and the Gard, Hérault and Vaucluse. The region offers you a multitude of discoveries and activities, in all seasons, and we will be happy to advise and inspire you.
And if you are in one of our bed and breakfast rooms, it is possible to dine in the evening, enjoying a good glass of wine from the region, or to order a picnic basket for lunch, with fresh seasonal products and terroir.
Le Mas des Sages is an old mas dating from the 2nd half of the 18th century. Over the centuries, the farmhouse has been a farm with horses, sheep and chickens, a vineyard and a silk farm. Then a family house, and now a guest house.
We were told that in the 19th century, the owner of the farmhouse and his neighbour and friend left Aubussargues on horseback, dagger by the side, for Smyrna, today called Izmir. The downy mildew having attacked the vine, it was necessary to find a solution to support the families, and they went as far as Turkey to bring back silkworms. Several parts of the farmhouse were at that time transformed into silkworm farms to educate the silkworm. Our cottage for 4/5 people is housed in one of these parts.
On the railing of the balcony of the interior courtyard, we still see the initials of this adventurer in wrought iron, a nice nod to a distant time.
From the viticultural era, there are also some vestiges, such as the large wine tank under the shelter in the garden. And from the farm, the sheepfold where you can still see the troughs.
Despite the age of the mas, almost 3 centuries, we are only the 3rd owners, and we wanted to save as much as possible the heritage and spirit of the times that this building has gone through.
We hope you will enjoy our house, its authenticity and its atmosphere as much as we do!
