St. Remy de Provence house description

The mas “Les Oliviers de Saint Paul” was built in 2005/2006. The villa is set privately in its own 1000 square meters garden, and was designed according to traditional provincial style, reminding one of the old authentic village.

The typical village of St Rémy de Provence is located close to Avignon city and les Baux de Provence. You will enjoy the benefits of the Provence lifestyle such as walking around the old city centre, enjoying its restaurants, or live the unique experience of its Wednesdays’ Provencal market, acknowledged as one of the best in the entire region.

The villa has been designed in the style of a traditional Provencal house and accommodates up to 10 people. It is best suited for families and/or groups of friends! The villa is set privately in its own garden and has its own swimming-pool. Dominique has put her unique decorator touch on the whole house, creating a highly provencal atmosphere with the mix of modern and traditional furniture.

The house has five bedrooms (one on the ground floor and four upstairs). Each of them possesses its own bathroom overlooking either onto the Alpilles hills, the old town or the Mont Ventoux.

The well-furnished living room and its old stone fireplace will keep you cosy at any time of the year. The kitchen has a typical French style and is well-equipped. It opens onto a shaded terrace, where you can have barbecues.

There is a swimming pool (10 x 5,5m) with secured access for children.

Lights softly illuminate the property in the evening.

Ground Floor :
The house distributes a large living room and dining area, and an eat-in-kitchen. There is also one bedroom on this floor.

The living room has French windows opening onto the garden and overlooking onto the Alpilles Mountains. A fireplace, a large sofa, armchairs… are here to make you feel at home. For your entertainment, there is a library with English books, as well as a TV and a stereo system with CD/DVD player. You benefit from a wireless high-speed Internet connection to accommodate your laptop.

The dining area is furnished with a dining table seating 10.

The kitchen is separated from the entrance hall, and is fully equipped for French chef cooking: large choice of nice plates and dishes, big farmer sink, a large Smeg cooker with electric oven and five gas hotplates, a microwave, a coffee maker, an espresso maker, a boiler, a toaster, a large fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. The authentic kitchen table seats 8/10. The kitchen has a view on the garden.

The landscaped garden is planted with olive and yew trees, lavender, rosemary, flowers and lawn. Don’t forget our young fig tree and its very tasteful fruits! A gardener takes care of it.

The swimming pool (10 x 5,5m) displays a secured access, counter-current swimming equipment and long chairs.

                              Our house is a 2 minute walk from one of the finest Greco-Roman ruins which is acknowledged as one of the most important in the region, the couvent of Saint Paul de Mausole where Vincent Van Gogh used to live and paint is right above our house at the bottom of the Alpilles


                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About: Since the first time my husband and I went to Saint Rémy de Provence, we have been dazzled by the Alpilles light, the characteristic scent of the provencal markets, the taste of the olive oil and of the rosé wine of les Baux de Provence. Our dream then, was to build a house where we could welcome our children and friends. Saint Rémy's charm and authenticity were the reasons of our immediate choice. We hope you'll have as much of a great experience of the unique Provence lifestyle that St Rémy provides as we did and still do.

                              Why St. Remy de Provence:
                              We love Provence and its lifestyle, the light, painted by so many artists like Van Gogh or Cezanne, the sunshine weather. We choose St Rémy as it's a lovely village. The house is at a five minute walking distance from the historical center, which makes it very convenient. It is in a very quiet district; the pool and the garden are peaceful. Finally, the access is very easy from Paris (2hrs 40min by TGV train)

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The open-air provencal market (on Wednesdays in Saint Rémy) This regionally well-known market will offer you a varied choice of fresh products, provencal fabrics, directly produced olive oil, you will be amazed by the profusion of colours and scents which will submerge you! Alpilles Hills: These hills are very close to the house and the track roads are to be used by any walker (children, families, hikers). Walking from Saint Rémy to les Baux de Provence, you will enjoy an amazing view of the region all along. The Golf courses - les Baux de Provence (18 holes next year) - Servanes hotel in Mouriès (18 holes) The train access: the TGV Avignon train station enables you to come either from Paris, Lyon or Marseille in a very short time.
