The Domaine “Mas Natura” consists of a large building on 3 levels in a former agricultural farmhouse initially named “The Apricot Trees” but since renamed “Mas Natura”. It is located on 2 hectares fenced and planted with trees with about ten parking spaces with electric gate at the entrance, swimming pool with non-chemical salts, air conditioning and solar panels and above all a magnificent panoramic view of the mountains which extend to the sea. Below are a small wood and an orchard, further on a vegetable garden, a chicken coop, outdoor games (tennis table, trampoline, playground…) and indoors.

Each gite is independent of our own house at the front, but it’s also possible to combine the gites to rent them as a “Gîte de Groupe” (2 gites + rooms = approximately 195 m2) for your holidays or certain special occasions such as receptions, courses, courses, conferences or others. On the other hand, not being an ERP (Establishment Receiving the Public), we cannot regularly accept too large a group, nor at night to sleep more than 15 people. Knowing that there are anyway here only 3 bathrooms with shower and WC, 3 kitchens equipped with 3 terraces + 1 roof terrace and 2 balconies (smoking area), 4 bedrooms with 4 double beds (160 x 200 cm) or 8 single beds (80 x 200 cm) with the possibility of adding 2 additional folding child beds (under 3 or 12 years old) and in the 3 dining-living rooms: 1 double sofa bed in the NEST and 1 BZ type sofa (140 x 190 cm) and 1 retractable bed in the rooms, which makes a total bed for 14 adults maximum or 16 people if children or teenagers + reception of 2 dogs maximum on the ground floor.

It’s also possible if advance reservation of at least 6 months in advance to occasionally provide the rental of the entire “Domaine en entire” (maximum 20 or 25 people to sleep) in the 2 lodgings, the rooms but also the owners’ home, which represents approximately 300 m2 on 2 hectares. So a completely different budget and organization to plan several months in advance and only during certain school holidays or holidays, according to our own availability and possibilities, and therefore which, with some exceptions, cannot be done during the summer periods from June to September.

In all cases for the reception of groups for holidays, receptions, ceremonies, courses, conferences or other services contact us absolutely before by telephone or email on masnatura66[a] for the organization and conditions, obtain more information information and a quote more suited to your needs and situations, but above all block the desired dates to be reserved as quickly as possible before one of the lodgings or rooms is reserved before.

For more photos and information see the room for courses, internships, receptions and conferences as well as the games & sports room.

Group accomodation & reception conditions :

– Supervision of children and adolescents by parents or other adults : both from a practical and educational point of view, for learning to live in a community, it is important to teach young people how to put away their games even in the room before going out, close the door securely especially in summer because of the air conditioning or in winter due to heating, put away the balls and rackets, take off their shoes when getting into the trampoline (never more than 2 children together or 1 teenager alone), be careful in and around the play area and especially the shared swimming pool (armbands if necessary), do not leave towels, toys and buoys lying around there which could disappear or fly away, and finally, unless the owners have previously agreed to leave all games on site (risk of losing them at the beach).

– Well-being and respect for the environment : thank you to our guests for remaining as courteous and respectful of nature as possible, of others and the neighborhood, of the children and animals on site, and of the natural calm of the place. In fact, if babies, children and animals have all their places and priorities there, they must not excessively disturb other residents, nor be left alone and unsupervised at the risk of panicking and leaving our large property which although partly fenced, it is nonetheless open to the outside.

– Arrivals, exits and noise pollution : likewise, let us remain measured, respectful of the places and the people as well as the tranquility of this haven of peace and relaxation that you yourself have come here to seek. This is why the sound system with speaker even on the telephone (with volume at full volume) is strictly prohibited because of the bass it generates and music is only tolerated indoors and at a certain volume, nor every evening either. and especially not between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. according to current French laws. In common areas such as private accommodation which are not as well sound-insulated as a discotheque or party hall more suited to festive evenings, birthdays or “stag parties” which are strictly prohibited here. We just make exceptions for certain annual events such as end-of-year celebrations (Christmas and New Year’s Day). The natural and enchanting setting absolutely does not lend itself to excesses during the day or evening, please take this into account when making your reservation choice !

– Transparency and honesty : also notify us in advance of the expected number of guests, because we are required to know and respect a certain maximum number of people sleeping on site, adults or children, pets or not…

– Wind, waste and fire risk : being by the sea, in a fairly dry and windy region, there is always a risk of fire starting in the South of France, including in the OPs. This is why our lodging are all non-smoking but with smoking areas provided only outside on the terraces & balconies with obligatory ashtrays. Even if we have a large swimming pool as a water tank (non-chlorinated), a few garden hoses and rainwater collectors, it is sometimes far from sufficient in summer in the event of prolonged drought. This is why we chose planchas rather than barbecues and why it is absolutely forbidden to throw cigarette butts on the ground, nor plastic or glass waste outside the bins provided at the entrance for this purpose.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and respecting the premises and the environment, our regulations and General Conditions of Sale T&Cs. Also read carefully the descriptions with photos and videos of our lodges Le NID and La TOUR as well as the Important information for members of the group to know before any reservation, payment and staggered arrivals. If you have any questions, problems or other issues, do not hesitate to talk to us early enough to find a solution together.


Taxes, deposit and compulsory cleaning :

  • Tourist tax : From 2020, according to the new directives from the Ministry, the Thuir Tourist Office asks us to switch to the actual tourist tax which is calculated in a fairly complex way for unclassified furnished accommodation at around 2% per night and number of adults – see :
  • Deposit : On site, upon arrival during the inventory, we ask for a deposit of € 1,500 to € 2,000 for groups (€ 500 / accommodation + rooms) depending on the season, the number of occupants and the length of stay. One part of the deposit must be provided on arrival in cash and the other by checks (if French). We return the cash upon departure and the check will be torn 14 days later if there has been no damage, no malicious intent, pollution (cigarettes, waste, etc.), theft or disappearance, breakage or damage.
  • Household : Cleaning also provide on arrival €150 to €200 in cash (€50/accommodation + rooms) for the complete steam cleaning net of interior and exterior spaces, entrances, mowing, watering, etc. On the other hand, storage is not included in the cleaning costs and basic cleanliness (quick cleaning of surfaces) is required when guests leave, inside and out. So please return the accommodations, terraces and other spaces in the same condition as on arrival.
