Property 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We bought Mas des Grand' Terres in 2004 and lived there for 10 years during which we shared our home with hundreds of VRBO guests. (We have an independent apartment adjacent to the main house.) In 2014 we returned to London for a number of work and personal reasons. For the first two years we house-swapped and did not let Mas des Grand' Terres. But now we have our own base in London and are once again letting the Mas over the summer of 2016. This time around, we won't be there to answer your questions and join you for drinks. But we have put in place a local support team to keep the place clean and tidy, look after the pool and gardens, and help when you need it.

Why the Owner Chose Rognonas, France:
We chose this property as we could see that it would make perfect holiday accommodation. It's four bedrooms are pretty much equal-sized and we knew that we would have space in each to install an en-suite bathroom each with shower, WC and handbasin. No shared bathrooms, we knew, is a great attraction. The high ceilings and tall windows add to a sense of light and airiness and the lightest of touches with the air-conditioning in each bedroom keeps them cool even in the heat of our Mediterranean summers. The 2 acre garden was a blank canvas onto which we were able to impose our vision of a series of spaces in which to play, hang-out or relax. And its position, down a quiet lane surrounded by fields and orchards, yet on the edge of the busy village of Rognonas just 15 minutes from the centre of historic Avignon and 20 minutes from the beautiful town of St-Rémy-de-Provence, means that we and our guests can enjoy the quite life without ever feeling isolated from shops, bars, restaurants and culture.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Apart from its cool (air-conditioned upstairs) interiors and the 2 acres of garden with its beautiful turquoise pool, this is a great area in which to stay. It's so well placed. It's close to several airports and the Avignon TGV station is less than 15 minutes away. You can get here in 3 hours or less from Paris, London, the Alps, Spain, or Italy! We're in the heart of Roman Provence, with remarkable remains in nearby St-Rémy-de-Provence, Arles, Names and the Pont du Gard. In the medieval period this is where the Pope and his cardinals decamped to from Rome for almost 100 years. It's the location of ancient monasteries, rugged castles and picturesque hilltop villages. We're under an hour from the bulls, flamingoes and white horses of the Camargue and the Mediterranean. And it's a world-renowned centre for wine, olives, goats' cheese, lavender, honey, fruit and vegetables. 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...
