Geocache Description:


[FR]

Une balade sur une partie du chemin faisant le tour du plan d'eau de Saint-Clément, agrémentée de quelques caches.
La racine du provençal mas est le latin mansus, participe passé de maneo, séjourner, qui est aussi à l'origine des termes français maison.
Le terme paraît s'être appliqué aux locaux d'habitation et aux bâtiments à vocation agricole.
À la fin du Moyen Âge, dans les montagnes de la Basse-Auvergne, le mas était l'équivalent du hameau.



[EN]

The root of the Provencal mas is mansus, Latin past participe of maneo, reside, which is also the origin of French words house.
The term seems to have applied to residential premises and building for agricultural use.
In the late Middle Ages, in the mountains of Lower Auvergne, the mas was equivalent of the hamlet.
