Organic - a way of life! - All year roundHere at the Mas de la Cigale Bleue, the birds sing, the bees hum, the cigales chant - for they are happy to be living naturally. For our guests, too, Yvette prepares a delicious organic breakfast! Home made croissants, pains au chocolat, and the bread too is made from her own mixture of local selected organic flours. Even the coffee, the tea, the freshly squeezed orange juice, yoghurts, fruit salad, ... All are organic. In the summer, the house is kept wonderfully cool, in the provencal way - with no air-conditioning. In the winter, the house is warmed by a log fire. The roof has a full set of solar pannels, our water comes from a deep water table which is, of course, tested, and delicious. Throughout the garden and the house, our aim is to only use organic products, often basing this on traditional, biologically ethical methods rather than resorting to pesticides, etc... Our wish is to live in harmony with nature and to do everything possible to promote sustainable development.

There are the marvellous perched villages, the Abbey of Senanque, Provence's own Colorado and so much more! it's quite simple to pop down to the Camargue for the day, to see the flocks of flamingos, the white Camargue horses that are so docile and easy to ride, the black bulls, fluttering dragonflies, or even if you are lucky catch sight of a kingfisher darting towards the water - or take a visit to the Pont du Gard and then wander along the Garon river, sparkling in the sunshine. We love gardening too and are delighted to share our interest in all the wonderful species that grow in this glorious climate! Top
THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENTThe Mas de la Cigale Bleue nestles in a truly peaceful nook, in the countryside. It has a very large garden which has a large variety of spaces and hideaways where you can relax and enjoy the calm. You can sit by the pond, wander through the wooded area, sunbathe on the lawn, spend a refreshing moment in the pool, take one of the tables and have a picnic with only the birds, and the cigales in the summer, to serenade you. In the evening, our little toads will amaze you. Sometimes in the springtime you will be able to hear the nightingales chorus, the owls overhead, and the magnificent spectacle of the starry sky and the milky way. Top
