The garden

Le Mazet has its own private garden with sun loungers, table and chairs for alfresco dining and a Weber charcoal barbecue. The garden has the benefit of sun from morning until evening due to its south-facing position, but the massive oak tree offers shade. The sunset bench is the perfect place to watch the sun go down, with a glass of wine. The views are spectacular. 

Le Mazet guests do not have access to the pool, as it is located in Le Mas’ private garden.
