Keywords: Le Mas du Philosophe is a beautiful large traditional villa which lies between Simiane Collongue and Mimet. Surrounded by fertile, colourful countryside, the house provides an ideal base for families wishing to explore the region. Whilst the house lies in beautiful peaceful countryside, it is close to all amenities and within just under 10 minutes you are on the highways which take you to the beach, Marseille, Aix, the Camargue, the Lubéron or the Côte d’Azur.
This 4 bedroomed traditional Provençal house is with open beams, traditional fireplaces and terracotta floors.
