The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

This magnificent fortified 'mas' consists of several buildings erected in the typical style of the region with slate and granite. With its archways, alleys, cellars and courtyards it is a small world in itself, surrounded by terraces with fruit and chestnut trees, sheltered fields and meadows with sheep and goats. After centuries of bristling life, alternating with periods of silence and idleness, La Donzelenche, age-old but not worn-out, has now been restored to its old glory.
It is the ideal spot for a wonderful holiday, a place to find peace of mind and inspiration.
Gite Donzel
This authentic Cevenol gîte accomodates two. It has a spacious sleeping room (25m2), bathroom and toilet at ground level with wonderfull old tile floors. On the private balcony you can enjoy your breakfast in the morning sun or at night enjoy a glas of wine under the stars. On the first floor a charming living room (25m2) with a beautiful slant of light, chestnut rafters and fine old-fashioned furniture and crockery set. The modern woodstove blends in surprisingly well and provides a cosy glow on a autumn evening. View of courtyard and archways.

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.

    Prachtige locatie, uitzonderlijk verblijf met toffe gastheren Eva en Hans. Ze hebben een mooi plaatsje gecreëerd.
    Je kan er heel lekker eten en hun bier 'la Donzelle" en vlierbloesemdrankje is subliem.
    Zeker een aanrader als je een uniek verblijf zoekt.

    We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf in huisje de Donzel op de mas Donzellence. Ontzettend leuk huis, goed verbouwd en van alle gemakken voorzien. Een heerlijk "eigen" balkonnetje, maar je kon naar eens ook een ander plekje op de mas uitzoeken om even te gaan zitten. Eigen kookgelegenheid maar Eva en Hans kookten ook regelmatig voor gasten die dat wensten en die op tijd hiervoor reserveerden. Wat een heerlijk gastvrije gastheren zijn zij. Echt complimenten. Hun doel was dat iedereen zich heerlijk op zijn gemak kon voelen en een heerlijke vakantie bij hen beleefden. Beneden bij de rivier kon je heerlijk zwemmen en de mas is een heerlijk vertrekpunt voor het verkennen van de prachtige Cevennen.
