Mas de Thau - luxury gites

Child friendly cottage, Languedoc-Rousillon – Child Friendly Gites for Family Holidays to the Languedoc Region of France

About Mas de Thau - luxury gites

Mas de Thau comprise four tastefully renovated late 19th century, luxuriously child-friendly cottages, located in the Languedoc and facing the sea. The Mas harmoniously combines the wonderful setting of a vineyard farmhouse surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, pomegranates and lavender, not to mention the "Etang de Thau" with an authentic and luxury resort. The four luxury gites range from 90 to 145 m² and all have a private terrace to enjoy the outdoors and entrance. Each is decorated to create a different atmosphere, each is beautiful: Picpoul (disabled access), Grenache, Muscadet and Syrah. Mas de Thau is located near Mèze and Pézenas, is close to A75 and A9 highways, Montpellier and Béziers TGV stations, as well as international airports. It is easy to find - follow your nose through the vineyards and prepare to be enchanted. The lovely owners Maryse and Yvan are your hosts; Maryse'e English is excellent - Yvan's grin is really good - the nanny responsible for the creche is British so do not worry about any language barriers. 

Family luxury in the South of France

Mas de Thau is a luxurious mini resort with a vast array of things on offer. Comprising a group of family holiday houses within gorgeous rolling countryside in southern France, Le Mas is a fabulous French getaway with the kids amongst fields of sunflowers, surrounded by vineyards and a certain quiet. It is perfect for parents who need to re-energise as Maryse and Yvan have organised the place so perfectly to afford you some ‘me time’, from the carefully thought out decor, good quality linens, towels and toiletries to the beautifully presented children's rooms and fabulous facilities. Perfect to escape to as a family unit, perfect to gather together friends and family and rent it out completely; however you find yourself at Mas de Thau you will have a ball.


Mas de Thau currently comprises four cottages, all of which have free wi-fi access. The space in each is incredible - all are different with wonderful features, the thickest stone walls and wooden beams that make them truly unique.  All are equipped for an easy self-catering break away with fully equipped kitchens, comfy sofas, dining areas, spacious bathrooms/en-suites and cosy bedrooms.  Cots, highchairs, baby monitors, books, dvds and toys are available in your gite.

Things for Kids

The creche, the outdoor play equipment, the heated pool, the toys, books, DVD collections, the safe space to explore, the animals, the nannies - the place is completely family oriented and you will relax as soon as you realise that.  The kids club is a fabulous free facility and is available to ensure they do not get bored - the Nanny will whisk them away to the indoor, air-conditioned kids club to be creative and let off steam out of the mid-day sun.  Maryse is developing a petting area for the children to get up close to small farm animals - currently egg-hunting is a great treat, goats and rabbits are to join the farm too.

Communally there is a large outdoor space where parents might sit and chat over a few glasses of locally sourced wine - Yvan surprisingly is very helpful on this front and you shall enjoy the organised wine tastings with him enormously - possibly until the early hours so be warned!  Along with wine tasting, bbqs and other get-togethers are frequently arranged so that you have the opportunity to meet the neighbours and establish new play mates for the children.  More plans are afoot to build a "village place" where you may sit around a fountain, relax at the bar under the trees (coffee, tea, wines available for guests), perhaps be challenged to game of "petanque" and sample goods from the delicacy store stocking different regional products including olive oil, wines, sweets and jams.   


Otherwise you might find a spot under a tree, with a delicious glass of your chosen red from the local vineyard and a good book and feel pleased that you have found such an amazing place. Bon vacances!
