About Property Manager
We bought this old farmhouse 20 years ago and lived there for 10 years. We had to move back but a piece of our heart stayed at Provence.
Property Manager purchased this Farmhouse in 1989
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We specially loved this house for the immense garden and its placement - you are surrounded only by nature.

The Best of Provence
It is rare to find such an exceptional home and property, especially one that can be enjoyed in all seasons. We found everything in perfect condition. Obviously no expense has been spared to make this home comfortable and welcoming. The owner is unusually attentive and generous. When we asked about using the fireplace, Jutta not only arranged for a chimney sweep but had a cord of firewood delivered and the fire ready for us to light! We have been renting vacation properties in Europe for almost 20 years. This one sets the bar so high that we can't imagine ever renting elsewhere in the south of France. It is a magical place in a beautiful area that is fortunately still unspoiled.
A wonderful week away
We were very excited to arrive at the large iron gates and drive up the drive way to Mas St Claude. Roger was there to meet us and showed us around. We were only six in our group and the next decision was who was going to sleep in which room, all of them were very nice, spacious and had good views. Days were spent by the pool and evenings with the BBQ on and eating on one of the patios. The villa is very well presented, loved and you’d be lucky to find a place as good in the area. We attended a wedding around the corner and hearing about the other villas we definitely had found gold with Mas St Claude, our biggest regret was not staying longer. On that note we are planning to return next year as it was such a wonderful stay and a place we want to return to. Thank you Jutta for making our holiday so perfect and letting us bring Mimi, she also had the best holiday ever! Very best wishes, Lizzie
Most relaxing holidays ever ! Beautiful place
We loved our stay at Mas St Claude, we were very lucky to find such a place. The location is ideal (perfect place for running, cycling and visiting all the little villages nearby) and the Mas is even better in real than on the pictures. The arrival on the first day via the driveway, driving down the lake, its fountains and the wonderful gardens is simply stunning.
We were a very large group of family and friends but never felt like it was too much of a crowd for this house, all the rooms are spacious and there are really two separate bedrooms areas which is very convenient. The Mas is nicely decorated, kitchen is fully equipped, and Roger is always here to answer any of your questions which was greatly appreciated. The Pool area is really beautiful as well.
The kids played all day long with the small boat on the lake (Jutta, the owner, was kind enough to replace it before our arrival so kids could enjoy it during our stay – they loved it of course).
We strongly recommend to any large group this fantastic Provencal house, communication with Jutta is easy and Roger will be there to welcome you and assist in any way he can !
Autumn holiday at Mas St Claude
My husband and I have just enjoyed a magnificent Autumn stay in Mas St Claude. This magnificent, fully renovated Mas is situated a short walk from the delightful village of Eygalieres, which has a number of wonderful restaurants and exudes an authentic provencal charm. Ten minutes away by car is the equally charming village of St Remy de Provence, which is larger than Eygalieres and boasts many shops and restaurants. The area surrounding the Mas is dotted with beautiful wineries and a number of villages rated as the “The Most Beautiful Villages Of Provence”, all within an easy days drive. The Mas itself has been extensively renovated with modern bathrooms and kitchen, air conditioning, central heating and a swimming pool. The property sits on approximately 10 acres of land with a garden featuring an ornamental lake, almond trees, olive orchard, lavendar fields and an assortment of fruit trees. The owner, Jutta, was delightful to deal with, as was the caretaker, Roger, who greeted us when we arrived at the property and was at hand if assistance was required. Overall, our experience at Mas St Claude was absolutely delightful and we will be returning next year.

Perfect Location for a Holiday in Provence
Our stay in this beautiful Provencal Mas St Claude was with a group of cycling friends and family. From the moment we drove down the driveway and saw the fountains in the lake it felt perfect. We certainly made the most of the wonderful gardens and swimming pool. Many hours were spent relaxing under the trees while the children swam in the pool and played in the small boat on the lake. The house was great for 2 groups of people with 2 separate bedroom areas. It is decorated in the Provencal style and colours with good quality furniture. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of dishes, plates and glasses and 2 coffee machines. It was beautifully clean with good quality bathrooms, although 2 were a little small. Another thing we enjoyed was the many different seating areas outside for enjoying outdoor meals.
We found the area to be a perfect place to enjoy our early morning cycling with a few challenging hills and lots of little villages to visit on the way. Then after our riding there was the wonderful shops in St Remy de Provence to visit only 10 minutes away. We also tried out most of the wonderful restaurants in Eygalieres and stocked up our pantry from the lovely Epicerie.
I would highly recommend this picturesque Provencal Mas to any groups or families wanting a relaxing holiday in Provence. The owner Jutta was very easy to deal with by email from Australia and Rodger the Maintenance and Garden Manager was very friendly and helpful, although we did have a slight language problem but managed to understand each other eventually.
Many thanks Jutta, we would love to return one day.
