Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

Stay in a spectacular artist’s residence and experience a bohemian yet luxurious way of life surrounded by creativity, charm and beauty. Just outside the stylish town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, you will receive a warm welcome in this magical and unique sanctuary. With eight bedrooms and magnificent living and dining space, Le Mas de l’Artiste is ideal for family gatherings or unique holidays with friends.

The 18th century Provencal farmhouse is adorned with fascinating works of art, including a superb mosaic floor in one of the two living rooms, created by a celebrated artist in the 1950s. Across the house and gardens you will find quirky sculptures, interesting paintings and fashionable pieces dating back to the mid twentieth century. Art lovers will appreciate the location so near St-Rémy, a town which has attracted artists for years, the most famous being Vincent Van Gogh who painted ‘Starry Night’ during his time here.

There are six en-suite bedrooms in the main house, each beautifully furnished, styled with colourful exuberance and fragranced individually with a carefully selected perfume, whilst the en-suite bathrooms are scented with the finest Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte products. There are two further bedrooms and one bathroom in the separate beautifully converted sheep barn, they would be ideal for staff or possibly older teenagers craving independence. Throughout the house only the finest quality shines through, there is air-conditioning, heating, Wi-Fi and high-end features such as a Bose sound system and Safe Sound speakers.

The vast terraced grounds offer yet more dreamy experiences such as the gentle sounds of the fountains by the pond, the heavenly scents of Provençal herbs and the stunning views of the Alpilles Natural Park that surround you. The heated pool is the perfect place to relax and long warm evenings can be spent poolside serving cocktails from the rather glamorous 1970s oval bar in the summer kitchen.

The warm and attentive owners are on hand as a personal guide and to ensure you have everything you desire for your holiday. They take great pride in providing an exceptional level of service and can arrange a number of bespoke experiences, no matter how unique, from spa and beauty treatments in the villa’s own wellness area, yoga and pilates in the serene gardens to private shopping tours to little known places, glider flights above the Alpilles and food immersion experiences from farm to table. Dedicated staff can be arranged, such as private chefs and a chauffeur service, amongs others.

The philosophy here is simple - experience unique luxury and the 'slow life' in the heart of beautiful Provence and create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Just outside the stylish town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (2.7km), Le Mas de l’Artiste is nestled in the heart of Provence with over 5000m2 of grounds with stunning views and direct access to Les Alpilles Natural Park.

St-Rémy 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 Michellin 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!

There are various festivities taking place across the year including the town’s biggest festival around 15th August which includes bull running, Camargue horse displays, street performers and local musicians. Other highlights of the town include two museums and the archaeological remains dating back to 2nd century BC at the Glanum site just south of the town. 

The small but lively city of Avignon (22km) is worthy of a visit 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. 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.

You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic hilltop villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers. Baux-de-Provence (10km), one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ and Van Gogh’s precious Arles (30km), are both within easy reach. Gordes (35km) 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.

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.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!
