Property description

Les Oliviers invites travelers through the lavender-lined lane to experience a restful stay in a private gite, or apartment, attached to a Provencal Mas. The Bouches du Rhône Department of Tourism has given this lovely property three stars, an indication of quality.

Les Oliviers is nestled between 40 olive trees on one side (don't forget to buy the house olive oil!), and wine vines on the other. The one and a half hector private property is filled with trees and a beautiful garden/play area. There is ample free parking within the grounds.

We offer two very comfortable one bedroom gites,which have been decorated to reflect the warm and welcoming provencal countryside.

GITE 1 has an American-style kitchen which opens up onto the delightful sitting and dining area. Large windows provide lovely views of the French countryside, drenched in sunshine. The bedroom features an antique provencal armoire, double-bed (160x200), and night stands. The bathroom has a large shower area and a washing machine.

Directly outside the kitchen is a private patio with barbeque for your enjoyment, the use of this is sometimes restricted by the local council according to the weather conditions

GITE 2 is two storey situated in the tower of the property ! The living area is on the ground floor with fully equipped kitchenette, and a large and beautiful bathroom with washing machine. The bedroom is on the first floor with double bed (160x190)and amazing views over the garden and countryside. There is also a private terrace with outdoor furniture and views over the delightful gardens. This gite is ideal for two people. There is also air conditioning in the bedroom.

PLEASE NOTE The price is fully inclusive of gas, electricity, heating during winter, bed linen and towels and the final cleaning at the end of your stay.

The price quoted is for 2 - 7 nights :it's depends of season ; We are able to accept stays more than 1 week but please inquire for price (discount for several weeks) (except in high season)

The rate for this gite 2 is different to those shown in the rates section : HIGH SEASON : 550 € per week in july and 580 € in august) ; MID SEASON : 480 € per week in may ; 500 € in june and september) ; and LOW SEASON : 450 euros per week, from January to april and from October to December) all inclusive like in gite one

Les Oliviers offers hiking and biking (if you have your own bikes) from just outside the door. But it's possible to rent bicycles in Aix or Salon of Provence.

The centre of St. Cannat is 2km from the gite, and has cafes, restaurants,(only open at lunch time for some of them or for both for others), post office, stores, and a weekly market (Wednesdays)- not to be missed! St. Cannat is just twenty minutes from the beautiful town of Aix-En-Provence, and only 30 minutes from the port city of Marseille and 45 minutes from the airport.

As well as offering self-catering accommodation we can offer a variety of extra services for our guests.

Wi-Fi internet access
Guests have access to wireless internet either wifi or via an ethernet cable Just bring your wi-fi enabled computer.

French classes
For guests wishing to improve their language skills while on holiday, we offer a range of customised French courses with a qualified, native French language speaker. Courses must be booked before your stay. Get in contact for more information.

A day time and evening baby-sitting service can be provided for young children. Please book in advance.

During the peak season bookings for less than one week CANNOT be calculated on a pro-rata basis as it may not be possible to let the remainder of the week. Therefore, we calculate a price that we feel is fair to both parties.

Your hosts, Nicole and Robert, look forward to greeting you and making your stay as magical as Provence!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Nicole is a retired teacher and Robert a school technician. Both love to meet people all over the world to share their experience of travelling and life. Je m'appelle Nicole et suis retraitée de l'Education Nationale - Je suis une personne dynamique, disponible et à l'écoute de mes vacanciers à tout moment. J'aime partager mes expériences et les voyages nombreux que j'ai pu faire. Découvrir d'autres cultures me passionne. Robert mon époux est plus discret mais tout aussi heureux de vous faire partager l'amour des lieux au sein du parc qu'il entretient lui-même ; il sera intarissable sur ses oliviers.

Why the Owner Chose St.-Cannat:
Le clos des Oliviers is situed in the heart of Provence and within an hours drive, you can discover all the beauties of the Region. the house itself is in a 'park like' setting Dès que je l'ai découverte, je suis tombée immédiatement amoureuse de cette propriété laissée à l'abandon ; nous l'avons restaurée peu à peu, avec Robert, mon mari, et nous y consacrons beaucoup de temps et de soins et ce depuis presque 20 ans ! Nous savions que c'était à cet endroit que nous allions développer cette activité touristique car le cadre y est idyllique pour se ressourcer aussi bien dans l'un que dans l'autre gîte Les retours positifs des touristes nous confortent dans notre choix et tenons toujours compte de leurs suggestions

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We choose this house because of its setting on the edge of the forest and on the heart of Provence Le clos des oliviers est réellement au coeur de la Provence : en une journée vous pouvez aussi bien aller à la mer ou à la campagne ou dans les villes riches en histoire (Marseille, Aix en Provence, Avignon, Arles....)
