Avignon farmhouse description

Newly restored 19th century farmhouse, Mas des Grand' Terres, is situated in a quiet residential area on the edge of the village of Rognonas, just outside Avignon. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equipped throughout, this is an ideal base for visiting Avignon, St-Rémy, Arles and the wine producing areas of the Cotes du Rhone.

The house is available to rent only as a whole - 4 bedrooms, each with air-conditioning/heating and en-suite bathroom - but during Spring and Autumn there is a discounted price to those not wishing to use all 4 bedrooms.

Guests have unrestricted access to our 8000 square metre (2 acres) garden includes a 12m (40') swimming pool, poolside kitchen and games area and quiet places to slip away and relax.

Mas des Grand' Terres provides and ideal base for touring, for walkers and for cyclists as well as those who are looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun. We are just a 5 minute walk from the village with bakers, a small supermarkets, butcher, deli, bars and a restaurant.

The opening of a new bridge means that we are now only 10 minutes drive from Avignon's TGV station.

We, the owners, are based on site and are discreetly available to help out with advice about our area, places to visit, restaurant bookings etc.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We (Lindsay and Guy Butters) are freelance business consultants who left more 'normal' careers in London to live our lives differently. We are based at Mas des Grand' Terres in our own apartment in the converted hayloft, where we spend way too much time staring at computer screens! However, we are there to help. We keep the place clean and tidy, and look after the pool and gardens. We can help with your queries concerning anything from lost luggage and onward travel arrangements, to booking restaurants and answering questions about local customs and history. We can also help you to select wines from our small local wine list, send you out wine tasting and exploring with our self-guided wine tasting guides, or cook an evening meal for you every now and then. We do not wish to be 'in your face' throughout your stay and do our best to balance discretion and availability.

              Why the Owner Chose Avignon:
              This area is so well placed. It's close to several airports and the Avignon TGV station. In 3 hours or less, we can be in Paris, London, the Alps, Spain, or Italy! We are both French speakers and have grown to love Provence during our travels in France.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              The weather is fantastic, the local food is great and Mas des Grand Terres is the kind of place where it is impossible not to relax. Don't just take our word for it, check out our previous guests comments...
