Mas de la Taillade in Summer

The farm which accomodates you is a typical Cevennes farmhouse. 

During many generations, the economic activity was the production of fruit and vegetables, manufacturing of pélardons (little goatcheeses) and silkworm-breeding.

Nowadays the farm lives a revival with sheepbreeding, chestnuts and the courage of a young Cevenol, our son, his partner and Julie, living in the farm.

Mas de la Taillade knew to keep its agricultural character with a production satisfying the family needs.
