Holiday home for 2 to 3 people: the Bakery
The monasteries used to be completely self-sufficient, certainly in the 12th century. So there was also a bakery in the main building. Because it is located on the ground floor, a huge chimney ran through the entire building up to the roof. The chimney was built in such a way, that both the adjacent house of the abbot and the refectory above it, were heated. In that wide chimney, in which we have built your kitchen, the homemade sausages were also smoked.
You will enjoy your holiday in this former bakery. Through the windows (with interior doors) that follow the arched shape of the ceiling, you will have a beautiful view on the courtyard with its many potted plants and flowers. To the left the beautiful recesses in the wall, in which the “baker monk” stored his utensils. Now you can put your cooking utensils there. The kitchen window shows the former entrance to the dome oven.
On the wall you can see the ring which hinged the heavy oven door. The original oven door has been preserved and stands against the wall outside the Bakery. Central heating is available in the living room and in the bedroom. This makes the Bakery a desirable apartment in the spring and autumn. In the hot summer months there is an extra benefit. The more than one meter thick bedroom walls provide a pleasant constant temperature of 23 degrees, while the outside is considerably warmer.
The bakery terrace is located on the east side of the building, a few meters from your holiday home.
You enter the living room of the Bakery through the courtyard. The apartment is characterized by small level differences, the thick walls and the arched ceiling. Prominently present is the sturdy wooden dining table with beautifully shaped legs. The farmer’s chairs around it and the low cupboard with cut-out hearts provide a relaxed atmosphere.
Two steps up and you are standing in the kitchen with the stone top, including a cupboard and fridge.
On this photo you see your terrace. In the morning sun you can have breakfast here and if it gets too hot in the afternoon, you can choose the shade of the fig tree.
We chose this apartment for ourselves to sleep in, during our honeymoon. The double bed is connected with 4 steps to the living room and therefore lies slightly lower. Under the soft light of the bedside lamp, it is wonderful to relax with a book.

Where do we start as whatever we write can not possible do this fabulous holiday home justice! The Mas Blanc is out of this world. The attention to detail is amazing, from the moment you enter this oasis it is paradise.
We are a family of four, with two young children aged 3 and 7. We stayed in Zonnehuis, where the views of the Cevennes are amazing. The room decor was beautifully designed.
We arrived at 19.00 hours, and were greeted by two members of staff from Mas Blanc.The staff were so friendly on arrival and we were greeted with drinks and made to feel so welcome. We were then shown around and taken to zonnehuis, where we had time to get ready for a meal. Meals are great, the eating ambiance is wonderful. The staff are friendly, helpful and very experienced always there to help and assist.
Tein you run a superb ship, and should be extremely proud, we would just like to say “Thank you so much” you made our stay in Mas Blanc a very memorable one.
