Farmhouse Inn

The Mas des Faïsses is a lovely stone building dating from the 18th century.

It is located in the Cevennes Mountains, with the boundaries of the Ardèche department, 5 kilometers upriver of the medieval town of Largentière. It sits in the middle of 10 hectares of grounds, comprising gardens, chestnut trees and fruit orchards.

The covered terraces, the vaulted stone rooms, the monumental chimney in wintertime, everything offers the visitor conviviality.

Passion in your plates

All of this is without forgetting that the Mas des Faïsses is above all an agricultural endeavor, firmly anchored in a sustainable environment approach.  This is why the Mas des Faïsses can call itself a “farmhouse-inn.”

In accordance with the requirements of the “farmhouse-inn” label, the Mas des Faïsses guarantees that the majority of the products are from the farm itself and that the preparations are truly “home-made”.

Yvette (the gardener) and Robert (the cook) are both passionate about what they do :  the crops are incredibly diverse and original, making the menus even more so.  However, these preparations are reserved for the overnight clients of the farmhouse-inn.
