The castle, which even has a spa treatment room, is magnificent, as are the views from the King’s Suite. The windows look out over immaculate gardens, a folly, lake, vineyard and stables, which house horses you can ride every day [reviewing Chateau de Challagne in the Loire Valley]

Overview of Mas Mayeaux

What Oliver loves…

  • We love the stunning views from the terrace of the Medieval castle
  • The property is an incredible rarity, enjoying absolute privacy whilst in spitting distance of shops, restaurants, cafes, as well as popular historical attractions and a beautiful medieval town.
  • Mas Mayeaux subtly combines classic architecture with a modern interior to stunning effect.
  • The region boasts a glamorous, sun drenched coastline and some truly fantastic wines.

What you should know…

  • Access to the house is up a flight of stairs, therefore not for those with impaired mobility.
  • A/C is available in the master bedroom on the first floor and in the open plan kitchen, dining and living area. All other bedrooms have fans!

Welcome to Mas Mayeaux, a 5600-square-metre private estate on the banks of the river l'Ouvèze, secluded behind a dramatic cliff face, yet just a few minutes’ walk from the classic Provençal village of Vaison la Romaine.

The property comprises two houses just a few steps from one another – the main house, a traditional Provençal stone mas sleeping up to 9 guests, and the smaller conciergerie, a loft-style architectural gem that comfortably sleeps a further 3 people in two bedrooms. Both houses have their own patio areas, with splendid views of the chateau across the river and towards Mont Ventoux in the distance.

The private pool terrace is a beautiful paved area with sun loungers, surrounded by fragrant lavender bushes and pink oleanders, and overlooked by an atmospheric dining area. From these garden areas guests can take in unobstructed views of the hilltop medieval castle that sits high atop the opposite bank of the river l'Ouvèze.

Just a few hundred metres down the river lies the historic Roman bridge, and at a similar distance you’ll also find the ancient hilltop medieval city, along with two major Roman antiquities sites right in the centre of town. Also in the centre of Vaison la Romaine you’ll find the pedestrian shopping streets and the main square, with a great selection of shops, cafes, and restaurants, where you can relax and take in the atmosphere of Provence.

Interior & Grounds

Main House Interior (max cap: 9)
The picturesque main house is a classic Provençal stone structure, with thick walls to keep it cool in the summer. The interior has been completely renovated and modernised, with an air-conditioned open plan living, dining and modern country-style kitchen area on the ground floor. It has 5 bedrooms (3 doubles and 1 single on the ground floor, 1 double master bedroom on the first floor, with A/C and a great view of the medieval castle!) and 3 luxurious modern bathrooms (2 on the ground floor), plus a study and a huge outdoor patio/terrace directly accessible from the living/dining/kitchen area. It comfortably accommodates up to 9 people. A digital TV with local channels and a DVD are also available.

Annexe House (max. cap: 3)
The adjacent smaller conciergerie house is an architectural gem with a spacious loft-style open-plan kitchen-dining-living area, 2 bedrooms, a large modern bathroom, and a separate WC. It opens onto a small terrace with views of the Mont Ventoux in the distance and the hills just across the river. It comfortably accommodates 3 people (an additional guest may be accepted on request - please enquire).

Outside Grounds
The totally enclosed private property comprises 5600 sqm of garden with oak, olive, fig, lavender and other beautiful trees and plants. The pool area features beautiful natural stone tiles providing ample space to relax on the chaises loungers, surrounded by fragrant lavender and colourful pink oleander bushes. There is also an outdoor dining area overlooking the pool.

The 4x8m (13x26 feet) heated pool uses a modern salt ionization system, making the water silky smooth. There is  plenty of room to lounge around the pool on the lovely natural stone tiles surrounded by bright flowers and with views to the medieval castle. A barbecue is also available.

There is also ample outdoor parking for several vehicles.

Map, Location & Local Information

Vaison la Romaine is steeped in history, surrounded by vineyards and teeming with hiking and biking routes in the area. The Mont Ventoux, made famous by the Tour de France, is visible from the property and is only 10km away, providing challenging cycling routes and breathtaking views from the Mediterranean to the Alps. 

The pedestrian shopping streets, with the Marché Provençal on Tuesdays, are only a 3-minute walk away, as are a multitude of charming cafes and restaurants. In the Cité Mediéval, just across the Roman Bridge (that is the same 3-minute walk away), you’ll find historic houses, a church, and castle ruins at the top of the village, which also boasts many enchanting art galleries, shops and restaurants. 

Vaison’s rich past will enchant those who love historical places, as masterly showcased in the antiquity sites. If it’s entertainment you want, then take in a concert or dance performance at the Théatre Antique (outdoor Roman Theater). For shopping and dining, the main town of Vaison boasts all modern amenities, including cafes, restaurants, shops, bakeries, supermarkets and just about anything else you could possibly need during your stay. 

The region is a wine aficionado’s paradise, with delectable local Cote du Rhone varietals from Vaison and the charming surrounding villages, such as Sablon, Roaix, Cairanne, as well as the more renowned Baume de Venise, Vacqueyras and Gigondas – not to mention Chateauneuf-du-Pape! 

Other activities in the area include an adventure park Oxygene just down the road (750m), hiking and biking routes (500m), horses (3km), rock climbing (14km), water parks (15km-17km), a river walk (Promenade dans le Toulourenc, 13km), canoeing under the Pont du Gard (1 hour away), a cultural visit to the Papal Palace in Avignon (45 minutes away) and Mediterranean beaches near Marseilles and the Camargues (1-1/4 hours away). The Seve Ballesteros-designed Pont Royal Golf is an hour drive away, as is Provence Country Club, while there is a 9-hole course in Orange 30-minutes away. 

Mas Mayeaux is perfectly located, just a quick 30-minute drive from the main N-S A7 Autoroute du Soleil. It’s 45 minutes from Avignon and the nearest TGV station, an hour from the airport at Nimes, and 1-1/4 hours to the Marseilles airport.

The 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!

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
