Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

This spectacular villa, just a few minutes from the heart of St-Rémy, has been designed to impress. With six elegant bedrooms, fantastic facilities and glorious gardens featuring a large swimming pool, this home is the perfect place for a memorable holiday with family or friends in this idyllic part of Provence.

Le Mas de la Fontaine is set on a vast estate, featuring two other restored farmhouses nearby and has its own grounds and swimming pool. Named after the old fountain that stands proudly in the glorious gardens, you are surrounded by space and greenery outside as you relax on one of the wonderful terraces. The grand swimming pool features relaxing water jets and a shallow end for smaller kids to splash around in and guests can pay for it to be heated to a specific temperature. Relax on the surrounding lawns as you relax in the sunshine, find shade under one of the ancient trees or listen to the trickle of the fountain from the al-fresco terrace.

As the evening approaches, meet in the summer kitchen with a difference; a splendid room with luxurious sofas and a 4 metre long dining table and kitchen area. Arched windows lead to an al-fresco dining terrace and barbecue or for cooler evenings you can light a fire as you feast inside with friends, family and fine local wine.

Elsewhere there is another well-equipped modern kitchen-diner, a cosy living room and six elegant bedrooms and bathrooms over the two floors of the main house. The artist’s studio offers space for yoga whilst the relaxation area features an infrared sauna, Italian shower and gym equipment. With home-cinema, wi-fi, satellite TV and music systems, the facilities seem endless and there is also frequent maid service during your stay.

It’s just a five minute drive to the centre of St-Rémy, well-known for being popular with artists including Vincent Van Gogh. In the summer months, on selected Sundays, the ‘Route des Artistes’ fills with local artists showing off their work creating a wonderful and bustling atmosphere. The village is also famous for its many restaurants, from down to earth bistros found on pretty narrow streets to Michelin starred establishments. Food lovers, don’t miss the market on a Wednesday morning!

You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages, world-renowned towns and summer landscapes of sunflowers and lavender both in Les Alpilles and beyond. Eygalières, Les Baux-de-Provence and Avignon are all within easy reach as well as Van Gogh’s beloved Arles and the mesmerising Luberon, which can easily be visited in a day. Whether exploring the local markets, cycling through lavender fields or pony trekking through the magnificent countryside, this region is sure to offer memorable activities for all ages.

When you return to your wonderful farmhouse you will appreciate the impressive facilities and high level of comfort as well as the delightful gardens and pool; this is a truly unique place in this captivating part of Southern France.

Le Mas de la Fontaine is located just outside the centre of St-Rémy (1.5km), just off the road that leads north to Maillane.

St-Rémy is an idyllic Provençal town in the heart of Les Alpilles National Park and is well known for being popular with artists, many live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. The most famous artist of all has to be Vincent Van Gogh who checked himself into the asylum St Paul de Mausole, which can be visited today, and created 150 paintings including ‘Starry Night’. In the summer months, on selected Sundays, the ‘Route des Artistes’ fills with local artists showing off their work creating a wonderful and bustling atmosphere.

The town is also famous for its many restaurants, from down to earth bistros found on pretty narrow streets to Michelin starred establishments. The surrounding countryside is rich with olive groves and vineyards with private tours and tastings easily arranged. Food lovers, don’t miss the market on a Wednesday morning!

You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers both in Les Alpilles National Park and beyond. Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ and Van Gogh’s precious Arles, are both within easy reach. Gordes is yet another one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months.

Don’t miss the lively city of Avignon during your stay. Explore the winding medieval streets, experience further excellent dining opportunities and visit two UNESCO world heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge. The covered market offers all sorts of delights or head to the weekend farmers, flower and flea markets for wonderful local produce and a bargain or two.

Those looking for activity have so much on their doorstep. There is both horse-riding and golf within a short drive and both the immediate and wider area are a walkers and cyclists paradise with stunning countryside and landscapes. Older children will love kayaking in the Sorgue and there are plenty of other family friendly activities throughout the region from model railways, open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.

Provence is a wonderful place for families with kids of all ages. There is a wealth of characterful villages, towns and cities to discover across the region. Visit a typical Provençal market and try some amazing new foods or simply wander around charming villages soaking up the atmosphere and admiring artists at work.

Follow the Van Gogh path around St-Rémy, looking out for the sign-boards featuring paintings he made in the village or head a little out to the archaeological site of Glanum. 

Head north to explore Avignon by the little train that takes you across the city including the Pont d’Avignon or take a boat trip across the Rhone. 

Create memories by kayaking along the Sorgue or hire canoes by the magnificent Pont du Gard, near Nimes. Try rock-climbing in Les Alpilles or find a pony-club for younger ones. This part of Provence also offers wonderful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding in the area.
