About Mas du Golf ...

This restored farmhouse at the foot of Chateau Albon Senaud has been transformed by the current owners into a splendid home, with five spacious bedrooms and bathrooms.

It overlooks the second and third holes of an exceptionally beautiful and varied 18 plus 9 hole golf course that will appeal to golfers of all standards (www.golf-albon.com). The owners have negotiated a minimum 15% reduction in green fees for their guests and the club also offer excellent practice facilities, a restaurant and instruction for all levels.

Le Mas du Golf is designed to make the most of the wonderful weather in this region, with two large, well-furnished terraces and an inviting outdoor swimming pool. The wonderful grounds are enclosed – partly by the chateau walls – in a private park of 5,000 sqm, where up to 12 people can enjoy total peace anda holiday that is as active or relaxing as you choose.

 It is easy to get to Mas du Golf from the autoroute (exit 12 Chanas), but the property itself is protected from sight or noise of the road by the wooded hills behind.

This area of the Drome is renowned for its vineyards, orchards and gastronomy and is just 3km from the Rhone river, with its hiking and biking trails (the ViaRhona). The area of Drome des Collines is a paradise for mountain biking, hiking and horse lovers, with hundreds of kilometers of marked trails.

The property ...

You'll want to spend as much time as you can enjoying the beautiful weather in the Drome region, and Mas du Golf is designed to help you do just that.

The swimming pool measures 9m by 4m, is 1.5m deep and is surrounded by a lavender bordered wooden decking. It is perfect for a refreshing workout in the morning or for a relaxing cooldown after a hike or a round of golf. Or you might just to relax on the decking with a cool drink, admiring the distant hills of the Ardeche. T

However, the house is equally inviting, and accommodates up to 12 people. The kitchen and living room/dining areas are welcoming and light with comfortable sofas around an open fire. The sleek modern kitchen has a breakfast bar and dining table.

There are five light and airy bedrooms, three of which are en suite. All bedrooms have beautiful views of the garden, the golf course and the hills beyond. Two rooms have double beds and the others have twins, which can be joined together to form doubles. Both terraces have barbecues, dining tables and lounging chairs.

About the area ...

Situated on 18 and 9-hole golf courses, the Mas du Golf Albon is a great choice for golfers. However, there are plenty of other things to do in the Drome area.

A cycle route and footpath runs along the Rhone for 450km and passes just 3km from the property. Walkers, bikers and horse lovers can explore hundreds of kilometers of marked trails that cover the Drome des Collines, the hills that stretch away behind the property. There are several established horse riding centres in the area, and bikes and kayaks can be hired locally.

Wine lovers will enjoy visiting the renowned vineyards in the area, where you can sample the produce before buying - try Saint Desirat and Tain L'Hermitage. Chocoholics will be delighted to visit one of France's leading quality chocolate makers, Valrhona, which also offers free samples!

There's a wide choice of restaurants in the area, to suit all tastes and budgets.

Don't miss a visit to  the unusual Palais Ideal at Haute Rives- a remarkable grotto-style palace built by a postman using stones he picked up on his round! Also, 20 minutes away is the birth place of hot-air ballooning, where an annual festival is held in June to commemorate Montgolfier's first flight in 1783

What next? 

If you like the look of a holiday soaking up the sun and the surroundings of Mas du Golf, why not check your dates against our availability calendar? We can hold the villa for you for 24 hours while you finalise your plans. But don't leave it too long - the villa is a very popular holiday choice!

The OVO Network Review

“A unique position on an 18 hole golf course !”

Having worked with Annabelle and Julian, the owners of Mas du Golf Albon when they owned a chalet close to La Clusaz, we were very interested to visit their latest project in the Drome/ Ardeche region.

From the moment you turn off the main road onto the track through the trees which open onto the golf course the project does not disappoint! The first glimpse of the Mas, which used to be the farmhouse for the Chateau off to the left, over looking the golf course, reveals a very special rental opportunity in a unique position, actually sited on an 18 hole golf course.

The landscaping and gardens are superb, and there are plenty of outdoor spaces to sit and while away the time watching the golfers or relaxing around the private pool. Indoors the ceilings are high, renovated stone work features throughout, and the many windows fill the property with light as well as framing splendid views. The family room beneath the eaves, still has good head clearance in the room itself and the ensuite shower room.

There is plenty do see and do locally around the Mas du Golf where the warmer temperatures mean it is possible to sit out of doors much longer than we are used to in the Alps, the golf course is open all year round.

From the Owner

We felt that this unique situation was where we wanted to make our next home

"After 20 years running a successful property finding business in the Alps we decided we wanted a change of scenery with hotter summers and shorter winters.

While playing golf one day at our favourite course - Albon Senaud in Drome les Collines - we saw a for sale notice outside the old farmhouse belonging to the château. Thinking of the old adage "location location" we felt that this unique situation right in the middle of a lovely golf course and with stunning views over to the hills of the Ardeche, combined with a charming property was where we wanted to make our next home.

Two years of extensive renovation later we hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Guest Reviews

“A super good stay !”

We had a great time in this beautiful house!

The outdoor spaces were perfect to have dinner. While the pool was cool and refreshing.
We loved exploring the golf course and watching the horse. Luckily the weather was gorgeous so we got lots of exploring.

The Valrhôna chocolate factory was amazing (so much tasting !), as well as the Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval and the Vélorail in the Gorges du Doux. Overall it was a super good stay !

“Relaxing holiday”

We had a wonderful stay at Mas du Golf. The kids had a great time in the swimming pool.

And us grand parents enjoyed lazy afternoons under the olive trees !

All the very best for the future.

“Lots of sun and fun”

Dear Annabelle and Julian, we've had a wonderful week with lots of fun and sun. We really enjoyed the house and your warm hospitality.

“A magnificent place, superb house, charming owners”

We had a fantastic week! Whatever you do, don't miss the fantastic Palace of Postman Cheval and the view from the Tour Albon. Thanks to Mr and Mrs Ormond for their great welcome and their efficiency and discreet presence.

“An excellent house...surrounding is great!”

Dear Annabelle, Julian and Harry, we have enjoyed ourselves far over 100%! Starting with 8 (people) , 2nd week with the 4 of us we had everything we could wish for. An excellent house, plenty of room and a nice pool. Surrounding is great, lots of things to do. Your recommendations were spot on.
As said we will remember this one as a 10/10.

“A great holiday - we will be back.”

We just spent 7 lovely days at the Mas du Golf. My three children had never played golf before & had excellent lessons with the friendly club coach Alain. The seasoned golfers in our group found the course interesting and beautiful! Biking along the Rhônes was fabulous and next time we will go to the hills. Our concern that the autoroute was too close was quite unnecessary as Le Mas is really quiet, woods behind and in front wonderful open views to the Rhônes and Ardèche. The house is very comfortable and the terraces perfect for outdoor eating. Of course the pool was much used in July! Julian and Annabelle were very welcoming and helpful with tips on other courses to play locally and things to see and do & where to shop.

“Perfect for both quiet escapism or activities”

Le Mas du Golf is a gem. My husband and I found it quite by chance, using it as a stopover on our way to the South Coast - we're now keen to book in for a longer stay next year. Situated on a beautiful golf course in the Rhone valley, the only other building you can see is the chateau above it. The farmhouse is very sympathetically renovated and is just a chip and a putt away from the immaculate golf course which extends from the garden! Golfers, walkers and foodies will love it. Highly recommended.
