What Oliver loves…
- The location is ideal, right in the heart of Provence and with easy access to all its treasures within a 40-kilometre radius
- It feels more like a private estate than a villa; the grounds are enclosed and the location is private and tranquil
- Lunching or dining alfresco is superb thanks to the fully equipped summer kitchen including a barbecue
- Maid service, baby-sitting, a private chef and even full catering are all available

This is the real Provence…ancient villages and towns amidst cypresses, vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards.
Just outside a walled, historic village, Le Mas Provençal is at the very heart of this formidable area, which has been blessed with beautiful scenery, UNESCO world heritage sites and world-renowned towns. It sits enviably between St-Remy-de-Provence and Avignon and within easy reach of the much-loved Luberon and Van Gogh’s precious Arles, as well as Beaux-de-Provence, which is one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’.
This impressive and beautifully restored 19th-century Provençal farmhouse is your own private, walled retreat, filled with fragrant lavender paths, sycamore and centennial olive trees, as well as lush lawns, flowers and an array of mature trees providing precious shade. The grounds offer plenty of space for everyone to relax and unwind and the lovely heated swimming pool, boules court and plentiful terraces, provide perfect ways to spend quality time together.
Indoors, the beautiful, quality villa is spacious and filled with an attractive mix of antique and classic furniture, large open fireplaces and homely touches. All bedrooms take full advantage of the beautiful garden views, which are bathed in Mediterranean sunshine.
Guests will be spoiled whether staying in and enjoying the beauty and comforts of Le Mas Provençal, or going out and exploring the region, which offers an endless choice of days out. The lavender fields of Abbaye de Sénaque and Sault and the ochre cliffs of Roussillon may be just as tempting as sitting on the terrace with a glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which by the way, can also be reached from here…as well as Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaume-de-Venise and much more!
Le Mas Provençal is the real Provence and guests here will be fully immersed in all its beauty, tradition and lifestyle, whilst being pampered by this lovely home.
What you should know…
- Le Mas Provençal sleeps up to 10 guests, made up of eight adults and two children (two children on the sofa-bed of the family suite’s mezzanine)

Le Mas Provençal is just a short drive from Noves (2.5km), a delightful village where you can find a variety of good restaurants, shops and a supermarket plus a weekly market. Visitors can explore the narrow winding streets from Noves’ medieval past and admire beautiful 17th-century facades on the many historical buildings. Noves is well known for its many festivals throughout the year from bull runs, open-air feasts to folklore processions. The region produces some very good and affordable local red wines (although wine connoisseurs will not want to miss a visit to Châteauneuf-du-Pape within a thirty minutes drive!).
Le Mas Provençal is in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic hilltop villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers. Gordes (30km) is just one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months. Or head south to the heart of the Parc Naturel Regional des Alpilles and the charming town of St-Remy-de-Provence (15km) where you can soak up the true Provencal way of life, especially on markets days. Van Gogh’s precious Arles (42km) and Beaux-de-Provence (25km), one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ are also within easy reach as well as a host of other pretty villages that make the region so famous and well loved.
The small but lively city of Avignon (12km) is a short drive and worthy of a visit during your stay. Explore the winding medieval streets, experience the 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. The bohemian quarter of the city, just next to the Sorgue river, has more of a village atmosphere with its artists, musicians, cafes and wine-bars.
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 and open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.

How long have you owned the property?
We bought the property in 2004 when we lived in The Netherlands. When we moved permanently to France in 2010 we started also our b&b activity next to our first priority of holiday rental.
What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Absolutely the garden/park and the massive volume of the house which allowed us to convert it into a luxe chambre d’hotes when not rented-out for holidays.
Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The property dates back to early 19th century, originally used as a farmhouse.
Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

Welcoming and relaxing
I would absolutely recommend Le Mas Provencal to anyone. This place is absolutely perfect in every way. The location is very close to many of the various historic villages and towns in the area. The facilities are extremely comfortable. The house is very beautiful, very well decorated by the owners who are wonderful hosts, attentive, gracious and warm. We felt relaxed and welcome in this lovely home.
A great find
Wonderful place, Wonderful hosts! Pros: ambiance and decor, friendly owners. This is a great find! Usually pictures on the internet look better than when you are actually there, but at the Mas, it is actually better being there! I researched a lot of houses in this area, and chose this one, and it truly lived up to its expectations.
A wonderful stay, thank you
Our stay at Le Mas Provencal was wonderful! The big house, the furniture and the interior just lovely. Also the pool and outdoor-kitchen are just unique. Thank you !
We spent a beautiful week in the mas. The welcome was very warm. The owners made all their best to make our stay unforgettable. Beds are excellent. There is a big beautiful garden, swimming pool and playground for petanque. The mas is located 10 mins from Avignon and very close to main attractions and lovely Luberon villages. I highly recommend this place. We come back absolutely every year.
This place absolutely deserves all the positive reviews. The facilities were extremely comfortable & cosy with a very good layout so that guests can enjoy the various living areas without being on top of each other. I loved that they had an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ out by the pool, complete with dining table for 8 & a full size refrigerator for guests to keep food in. We used it each night. It was really nice to have that separate area to hang out at. The overall location was very quiet & useful to getting to many of the various historic villages in the area. The grounds were very pretty & well cared for. Thankfully the pool area is well protected from the winds. I would absolutely recommend Le Mas Provencal to anyone, & would stay here again.
Everything was perfect
Great house with amazing garden for the kids to charge around in. Excellent facilities and lovely pool. Perfect.
Our stay was superb
Our stay at your villa was superb, it was the best introduction to Provence we could ask for, so centrally located for day trips around Provence. Our rooms were beautiful and the beds were cosy and comfortable( loved the linen). Your taste in decorating your home is impeccable !
Thank you for a memorable stay
Wonderful house in Provence! My family and I had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful house. The house was a traditional provence house which was very nicely decorated throughout and even though the weather was particularly warm during the time we spent there the house remain nice and cool during the day. The garden is absolutely magnificent and with such great weather, we spent a lot of time having barbecues, swimming and playing petanque. It is conveniently located to local villages Cabannes and Noves which have shops and supermarkets for your daily needs. It is also close to the scenic town of San Remy de Provence which has very nice restaurants and shops and a very nice market. Our hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful. Thank you for a memorable stay and we hope to come stay at your lovely house again soon.
