Welcome to charme en Provence, where privacy and tranquility are combined with incredible convenience. At this beautiful 5600-square-metre (1.4 acre) private estate on the banks of the river l'Ouvèze, you’re just a few minutes’ walk away from the centre of the enchanting Provençal village of Vaison la Romaine, along quiet country lanes.

This family home comprises a main house and an annex  just a few steps from one another, and set back 50 meters from the small road beside the river. The main house, a 200-sqm traditional Provençal stone mas, comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests, and the smaller 100-sqm annex house comfortably sleeps a further 4 people in two bedrooms.

Both houses have their own patio areas, with splendid views of the chateau across the river to the west and towards Mont Ventoux to the east. 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 outdoor dining and activity area. Here, you can play petanque or ping pong, dine al fresco, or just relax in the hammock or on one of the loungers. 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. 

The latest generation steel-look windows give the villa a sleeker profile, while providing more light and the highest level of energy efficiency.

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 breath-taking views from the Mediterranean to the Alps. Find out why renowned travel journalist, Alastair Campbell, loves this region so much and has been holidaying here for the past 30 years, over on Telegraph Travel.

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

Vaison’s rich past will enchant those who love historical places, as masterly showcased in the open-air antiquity sites in the town centre. If it’s entertainment you want, then take in a concert or dance performance at the Théatre Antique (outdoor Roman Theatre). And, for shopping and dining, 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 Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, along with Sablon, Roaix, Cairanne, Rasteau, Baume de Venise and Vacqueyras. All of these villages of the same name as their wines are close by and well worth visiting for a tasting!

Other activities in the area include an adventure park, Oxygene, just down the road (750m), hiking and biking routes in the surrounding hills (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 course is an hour's drive away, as is Provence Country Club, while there is a 9-hole course in Orange, 30-minutes away.

Vaison is easily accessible from the main N-S A7 Autoroute du Soleil, just a 30-minute drive east. 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.

  • Beautiful!

    on 24/09/2023

    Mas Mayeaux has exceeded our expectations, it is a beautiful property. Couldn't be happier.

  • Love the villa

    on 12/09/2023

    It has been great. We love the villa and am sure we would like to stay again.

  • Exceeded all our expectations

    on 01/07/2023

    We had the pleasure of staying at Mas Mayeaux in July 2023 with our group of 6 people. The house is beautifully renovated with a great eye for detail and maintaining very well the French authentic style. The garden is an absolute paradise, filled with flowers and very well maintained, with a view on the rocks and the castle of Vaison-la-Romaine, and no neighbouring houses in sight. We had everything we needed for our stay and the hosts ensured that all essentials were provided upon our arrival, from shower and pool towels and bed linen, to shampoo, shower gel, toilet paper and a fully equipped kitchen.
    In terms of entertainment, there is of course the lovely pool, a big terrace, ping pong table and plenty of space for some jeu de boules or other sports (for which even yoga mats were available). If the weather gets too hot and you want to relax inside for a bit, there is plenty of space to do so and there is even a pool table in the house. The village with wonderful French bakeries and several great restaurants and shops is only a five minute walk away. We usually ended our days with lovely barbecues on the terrace. In short, our stay exceeded all of our expectations, we will definitely come back here!

  • Beautiful place

    on 17/06/2023

    We had an amazing week in this beautiful house. There were enough rooms with private bathrooms, so we all had our privacy. The house is fully equipped with a bbq for outside dining, a nice swimming pool and a lovely big garden. You don't need a car to visit the cosy village Vaison La Romaine, it takes only 5-10 minutes to walk. There are all kinds of little shops, restaurants and a market. It is a child-friendly house with a lot of fun things to do. The house has a lot of board games, a pool table and outside a nice Ping Pong table. There are also some yoga mats to do a work-out together. I would certainly come back to this beautiful place and definitely highly recommend it.

  • The villa is superb.

    on 29/04/2023

    All has been great, your prompt communication has been especially appreciated. The villa is superb. We would love to return.

  • The most special week

    on 13/06/2022

    We loved our stay at Mas Mayeaux and had the most special week in the Provence sunshine. The house is beautiful. It has all the features and functions a family could need, and it is also beautifully designed with lots of thoughtful and interesting touches. We especially loved all the outdoor games, including table tennis, pétanque and lots of toys for the children in the swimming pool. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children and found the house really spacious. The bedrooms are large and either have air conditioning or fans so we felt cool at night (despite the daytime temperature reaching 30degrees). The house is ideally located (I can’t stress this enough) as it is a 5 minute walk to Vaison, but also feels very secluded and private. Vaison itself had so many good restaurants and we found lots that were also very child friendly. We also loved going to the local shops (and the market on a Tuesday) and cooking on the BBQ at the house. The terrace is incredible and we spent many happy evenings there enjoying good food and a beautiful view. It was a fantastic week and we can’t wait to return. Many thanks to the hosts.

  • Beautiful property

    on 07/08/2021

    This beautiful property is very stylishly decorated and is the perfect getaway to discover the region, as it is located within short walking distance to the centre of Vaison la Romaine, where you can find typical restaurants, with great local food and a great atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed biking through the region, the wine tastings at the different wineries. And after all the “effort”, there is time to relax at the private swimming pool, with view on the ancient city. A stay with our children, to celebrate our 30 years’ wedding anniversary, which we will never forget!

  • A wonderful villa

    on 03/07/2021

    A wonderful villa in the typical 'Provence-style' that has everything you could want. It offers spacious and luminous terraces, living areas and bedrooms. Above all that, the swimming pool provides the perfect refreshment during the day and lets you gaze at the incredible stars during the night.

  • Perfect for relaxation

    on 26/06/2021

    Very pleasant, well maintained and luminous house with a lot of space and a nice view on the castle of Vaison la Romaine! Perfect for some relaxation by the pool, to play ping-pong, billiards or petanque, but also a great base to visit the Mont Ventoux, les Dentelles de Montmirail, and nearby charming cities such as Orange and Avignon

  • Brilliant family friendly place

    on 05/06/2021

    We stayed for 12 days and the hosts were very accommodating and the house had literally everything you could possibly need ever for a family! It really is a home away from home. I thought it was a brilliant and family friendly place to stay. My daughter even learnt to swim in the pool. There was everything you may need in walking distance and a little river to paddle and swim in which was great with under 5’s. The gas BBQ was a hit and we had to buy one when we got home because it made our lives so easy!

  • Luxurious villa

    on 11/07/2020

    We had a nice stay in this luxurious villa, located in the typical French village of Vaison la Romaine. The village centre and medieval city centre are both within easy walking distance. The surroundings are perfect for a hike with beautiful views. And if it gets too hot, you can cool down in the pool.

  • A cosy house

    on 20/06/2020

    Everything about this house close to the city centre was wonderful. A cosy house, very nicely decorated and with all comforts, nice shower with garden view and well equipped kitchen. On top of that, the sun-soaked garden is mesmerising; I enjoyed the bright colours and different smells while swimming or while sipping an apero on the terrace.

  • Luxury and comfort

    on 06/06/2020

    A well maintained and well-equipped house offering plenty of luxury and comfort while still maintaining the picturesque feeling of the Provence. The swimming pool is placed perfectly to catch the early hours of sun allowing for a swim and a tan at any moment of the day. The positioning of the house on the hillside made for a relaxed and secluded vacation feeling while still offering all the required commodities nearby (shops, petrol stations, etc) as well as the pleasant town of Vaison La Romaine right around the corner.
    The region was perfect for both adventure seekers with canyoning, hiking, mountain biking and more within a short drive away, as well as for cultural visits to nearby Roman remains, walks among the vineyards and lavender fields, or one of the many wine tasting experiences.

  • We hope some day to return.

    on 24/10/2018

    We just spent a glorious month in your home in Vaison-la-Romaine. We want to thank you for making it available to us through Olivers Travels. It's a wonderful home in a wonderful setting. We had not previously been to Provence so we were able to take advantage of Vaison's central location to explore much of the area.

  • Wonderful property and location!

    on 15/09/2018

    We had a wonderful time in your house. Thank you for everything! It was just perfect in every way - the way it was equipped, the layout, the pool and of course the location. I fell in love with the town and enjoyed wandering through the medieval street at different times of the day to see its beauty in different lights.

  • Very Nice Property!

    on 21/07/2018

    Excellent location and good accommodation!

  • Spectacular

    on 24/11/2017

    Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful and comfy home with an amazing pool and great view of the town and spectacular castle. We also enjoyed the ping pong and pool tables a lot. This house was above and beyond our expectations.

  • Love at First...

    on 09/09/2017

    I fell in love with France’s beauty the moment I got here.

  • A complete trip

    on 02/08/2017

    I love the plants and the fruits. Have you tried figs on cheese? It was heaven and the pool felt so good.

  • Simply perfect

    on 09/07/2017

    The simple, elegant décor, the spaciousness, the convenient kitchen, and the delicious coolness of the pool after hot sightseeing, were all wonderful things about the place.

  • The summit of enjoyment

    on 28/06/2017

    It is incredibly beautiful here. I love the house and the town too. I loved the market and the music festival. I also loved all the daytrips you can take to places like the Pont du Gard, Avignon and Seguret.

  • A fabulous time

    Created on 22/12/2016

    We've had a fab time here. You have a super place. Thanks for the friendliness and responsiveness. I'll be sure to pass positive comments on to the folks at Oliver's Travels.
