It is in the countryside, surrounded by orchards and vineyards, that the magnificent Domaine des Clos is hidden. Ideally located less than 30 minutes from Nîmes, Arles or Avignon, it is the ideal base for enjoying all that the region has to offer: canoeing under the Pont du Gard bridge, hiking in the Alpilles or visiting Saint Rémy de Provence, among others.
A former 18th century wine estate, this establishment run by David and Sandrine Ausset, both natives of the region, may never have seen the light of day. About 30 years ago, the couple fell under the spell of the place and decided to leave Paris with their three children to give it a second life. A family affair between Provenceand Camargue that has been going on ever since.
Located only 25 km from the TGV station in Nîmes and 35 km from Avignon, the Domaine is also easily accessible to guests travelling by plane. It is 20 km from Nîmes airport, 40 km from Avignon airport and 75 km from Montpellier airport. It is of course possible to book a transfer between the airport and the villa.
The Domaine des Clos is the fruit of decades of work carried out by the couple of owners; years during which they patiently imagined, transformed and restored the old buildings: dovecote, stables and bread oven among others to create the private apartments and some rooms they offer today. They then drew and designed a huge garden with a beautiful swimming pool.
In addition to its atmosphere combining tradition and contemporary hotel comfort, the establishment is distinguished by its meticulous decoration: family furniture, objects brought back from travels around the world, master paintings, old Mediterranean pottery and Provençal knick-knacks. As they like to say, the owners like to receive their guests in an authentic and family spirit, so that everyone feels at home, with the luxury hotel service to boot.
This timelessly charming estate offers its guests:
- 9 rooms
- 9 private apartments
- 1 restaurant
- 1 outdoor swimming pool
- 1 garden of 4 hectares
- 1 library
- 1 parlour of board games
- 1 vegetable garden
- 1 bocce ground
- 1 welcome booklet containing the exceptional addresses of the region
- 1 car park
- 1 shop
- 1 wellness centre offering treatments and massages
- Kids-friendly activities (trampoline, ping-pong tables, table football)
- 1 babysitting service
In addition, the owners are happy to prepare buffet breakfasts, gourmet snacks and dinner baskets perfect for eating without leaving the property.
Although the Domaine des Clos offers a few rooms and suites, it is above all its private apartments that make this establishment a magical place where intimacy rhymes with comfort. There are 9 of these luxurious accommodations, ranging from 45 sqm to 180 sqm in size, making them the ideal solution for families looking to enjoy the tailor-made services of a hotel while maintaining a high degree of independence. They can accommodate between 2 and 7 guests.
The apartments Manon (45 sqm), Costières (45 sqm), Argence (60 sqm) and Alpilles (60 sqm) will delight couples. All have a living room with a kitchenette or a furnished kitchen, a bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom with shower. These little treasures offer a splendid view of the mas and the surrounding garden. The last two have private terraces of 20 sqm.
Families with children may prefer to stay in one of the apartments designed to accommodate 4 people. Whether you choose the Pigeonnier (65 sqm), the Provençal (80 sqm), the Four à Pain (100 sqm) or the Camargue (105 sqm), you will fall under the charm of these apartments which are in the spirit of a family home. All designed with similar facilities, but each decorated in its own way, they consist of a living/dining room with a fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with two single beds) and one or two bathrooms with shower. So, it’s up to you whether you prefer the private terrace in one, the magnificent stone fireplace in the other or the one with a private courtyard ideal for family meals.
Large tribes will surely choose Le Sud, the largest apartment in the Domaine des Clos. Its 100 sqm, which allows it to accommodate up to 7 people, is spread over two floors. The ground floor consists of toilets, a cloakroom, a large living room with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room that opens directly onto an outdoor arbour furnished with a table, chairs and garden furniture. The four bedrooms are on the first floor. The largest has a double bed, the next two have two single beds and the last one has one single bed. This floor also houses two bathrooms, one of which can be privatized by the occupants of a bedroom, as well as a toilet. Le Sud offers a splendid view of the farmhouse and the garden.
In addition to offering easy access to all the services of the estate, the apartments are equipped with a television, a DVD-Blu-ray player, a Hi-Fi system and a Wi-Fi Internet network. It is of course possible to have a baby bed and a high chair installed on request.
The apartments are all equipped with a kitchen or kitchenette, so it is possible to cook good food for the whole family. However, you will of course be able to enjoy the culinary experience of the owners, who offer different catering options.
Breakfast is served in the living room of the Old Stables or in the garden, if the weather permits. Breakfast is served as an all-you-can-eat buffet with various types of bread, pastries, cold meats, hot drinks, yoghurts, cereals, home-made jams and gluten-free products.
A table d’hôte service is offered every Monday evening in the summer and on request during the other months of the year. This moment of conviviality takes the form of a unique menu (aperitif, starter, main course, dessert) imagined around the vegetables of the vegetable garden and local products. Provençal specialities, fresh produce, local wines and olive oil produced on site thanks to the estate’s olive grove are there to delight your taste buds.
It is also possible to enjoy a delicious meal in the intimacy of the family’s inner circle. The Domaine des Clos offers lunch or dinner baskets that you can enjoy in your apartment, by the swimming pool or on your private terrace. Prepared with the same local ingredients as the table d’hôte, it consists of a starter, a hot dish, a cheese, a dessert and a bottle of water.
Finally, each apartment is provided with a welcome booklet containing addresses – rustic, family or starred – recommended by the owners in the surrounding area.
