Group lodgings or whole Domain
Domaine “Mas Natura” consists of a large building of approximately 350 m2 on 3 levels in an old farmhouse initially named “Les Abricotiers” but since renamed “Mas Natura”. It is located on 2 fenced and wooded hectares with about fifteen parking spaces with electric gate at the entrance and above all a magnificent panoramic view of the mountains which extend to the sea. Below is a small wood and an orchard, further a vegetable garden, a henhouse…
If each gîte is independent from our own house at the front, it is also possible to bring them together for your holidays or certain special occasions such as receptions, conferences, internships or others. In our room on the ground floor we can receive, punctually and depending on conditions, about twenty or thirty people (see CGV). On the other hand, the lodgings cannot contain more than 15 people maximum : 14 adults + 1 folding bed for child or teenager (in supplement).
Renting the entire Estate represents a completely different budget to be planned several months in advance (4 to 6 months minimum) and only during certain school holidays according to our own availability and possibilities.
Group reception conditions :
As you have chosen an ecological farmhouse, surrounded by nature, think precisely about respecting the environment as well as the neighborhood, animals and the natural calm of the place by avoiding leaving cigarette butts and waste lying around as well as making too much noise, especially after 10 p.m. Knowing that music is only allowed in indoor spaces and without a loud sound system (because of the bass) even in the room on the ground floor which is not isolated as in a party room more suitable for festive evenings .
In fact, since 2020 (Covid) and the closure of rooms and nightclubs due to sanitary measures, we no longer authorize group bookings of holidaymakers without the rental of the room on the ground floor more suited to the reception of groups of friends, families, colleagues, etc. and only for rest or sports activities or for courses, courses, training, seminars, conferences, receptions without loud music (sound system prohibited), drugs and excess alcohol, “bachelor party” and “youth parties party people ”, etc.
For an evening with friends or families, please let us know in advance if other guests are planned as we are required to know and respect a maximum number of people on site. Exceptionally for groups, we can add 4 additional beds in extra double beds, but no more than 15 people maximum. Thank you in advance for respecting our conditions and for referring to the rules, GTC and important information.
