The house offers 4000 square feet of living accommodation and has been totally renovated in keeping with the traditional Provencal style but with the ultimate in contemporary comfort.
The buildings nestle in lovely mature gardens decorated with a field of lavender bushes, rose laurels, hydrangeas, wisteria and roses.
Simply stunning modern construction using natural materials to create a contemporary design that focuses attention on the olive grove and Alpilles Mountain view. The interior boasts high ceilings, tasteful art and lots of light and air. The exterior is reminiscent of scenes painted by Van Gogh in the area surrounding the quaint but sophisticated village of Eygalieres Near St Remy and Les Baux de Provence.
The property is 1 mile from the centre of Eygalières in the heart of Provence in a peaceful oasis and enjoys magnificent views of the Alpilles mountains. Eygalières is a trendy yet uncrowded and lovely Provençal village which has remained authentic and full of character and charm.
The 6 acres (2.4 hectares) enclosed property has landscaped gardens with a wide array of different trees - cypress, pine, oak and fruit trees (cherry, fig, apricot, almond, hazelnut, quince) and an olive grove of almost 300 olive trees.
The house is made up of two independent buildings and can accommodate 10 people – the smaller pavilion has two double rooms each with en suite bathrooms while the larger house includes the large living room, kitchen and dining room, home cinema as well as three double rooms each with en suite bathroom.
Both houses are on one level making it well suited for elderly people or those in wheelchairs.

“The Mas is an extraordinary destination. I have stayed in many beautiful rental homes in Provence over the past 10 years, but this house is very special.
The setting is amazing - from the wonderfully furnished terraces there is nothing in front of you except Van Gogh's Alpilles. You feel like you are in the middle of the painting.
The home itself is the most wonderful mix of sophistication and tradition. Beautiful high end furnishings, fully air conditioned, supremely comfortable bedrooms, gorgeous baths, a marvelous kitchen with every possible amenity, from the double fridges and dishwashers, to the great built in espresso machine for the perfect morning cappuccino.
All of this surrounded by manicured gardens of lavender, green lawns, a profusion of flowers, an olive grove, a huge heated pool, with separate pool kitchen and pool bath house.”
Mrs S from California
“Secluded, secure, beautiful. It’s my favorite Provence destination.”
Mrs W from USA
“The house, the pool and its surrounding garden is beautiful and well maintained. The place is very quiet but also close to the village of Eygalières”.
