La Residence is a stylish l8th Century Gascon Maison de Maitre just off the town square. It's the perfect base to enjoy life in a popular French Village, yet offers all the amenities of a very comfortable, elegantly furnished home with a stylish courtyard swimming pool as an oasis away from the heat of the village square. Being our second home, we've fixed the place up to suit our every need - which we hope is your every need too! We like to sunbathe and read quietly. We love having friends over for meals so you'll enjoy our kitchen and we love being right in the centre of things, never really needing to get into the car as everything you need for your immediate enjoyment is right here, right in the town. When you need to get out Valence is very well positioned right in the centre of all the historical, cultural and sport... Read more

This is a great rental. The house is built around a courtyard with a lovely pool, great for cooling down on hot days. The outside space has lots of places to enjoy the sun or sit in the shade, there's an outside dining space with a gas barbecue, a really good place for the family to get together at the... more

Can't believe have not reviewed La Residence before as we will shortly be taking our third trip to this fantastic family house. We are a family group of 3 generations who usually look for a different house every year to stay but when we first came to La Residence in 2012 we decided we should look no further for 2013...


Management response:

Wow, Vicky, We love you! Thank you so much for your generous review. Really looking forward to seeing you all again. You and your family are the most perfect guests and always a delight to welcome to La Residence. You're not only popular with us but it seems with the whole village. Philippe at Le Masselet is delighted you're returning.... more

Additional amenities & feature info
There's a large farmhouse style kitchen complete with American Fridge Freezer with its cold water and ice dispenser. The range cooker has 5 gas hobs and the kitchen is equipped for the enthusiastic cook with many
large casserole pots and many platters. This is our home for the rest of the year, so it's equipped with all the
batterie de cuisine, cookery books and furnishings that go with a family home rather than just a holiday rental.
In the sitting room there's a vast collection of films on vhs & dvd. The UK Free Sat is the recordable type and we've
just installed a 48' LG LCD TV.
We've also got an excellent selection of books and games.
There's a darts board set up at the far end of the courtyard and the games room by the swimming pool has a
half size...
