Geographically situated just outside the walled historical village of Noves, Villa Mas St Jean is ideally set right in the heart of Vincent van Gogh's Provence. Serenely nestled and uniquely situated between St-Remy-de-Provence and Avignon, the walled city of the Popes, lies a unique and enchanting domain; Villa Mas St Jean.
This sumptuous building of the 19th century, nestled in the middle of fruit vineyards, invites you to discover the charm and the aroma of Provence. The domain fully enclosed by a wall, has a park garden with palm trees, 100-year old olive- and siccamore trees, oleander and lavender filled walkways and is appreciated by all its visitors. Mas St Jean stands out as one of the most beautiful properties in the area. Between the flowers and aromas, Mas St Jean is the perfect place to spend your holiday in harmony with the seasons and the changing colours of nature.
Villa Mas St Jean is a beautiful restored 19th century Provençal Mas. Its volume is massive, it has 380 m² of luxury living space, 11 rooms (incl. 4 bedrooms all with private bathrooms) therefore large enough to comfortably host up to 8 adults (the maximum number of persons allowed). However, the family-suite which we called 'Orient' has a private mezzanine on which we placed a comfortable couch which sleeps an extra 2 persons (usually used by children).
The lovely with antiques and classic furniture decorated living room, dining room and kitchen all have open fire places. The Mas is faced South and rooms downstairs have direct entrance to the terrace, and all bedrooms have astonishing views of the park.
Bleu de Nîmes, Ocre Rouge, Blanc de Sable, Vert de Chine each shade of nature extends into one of the rooms and suites. Also the harmony of colours which continues into the bathrooms.
Marble floors, Provençal and antique furniture, luxurious bedding, transparent linen gauze or printed tissues, each bedroom has its style and particular ambience.
Undoubtedly, once you have seen it, you will agree, the park is silent, spacious, simply paradise. During past years, the owners of Mas St Jean spend a fortune to make it special and beautiful as it has become. The domain has a surface of 6.000 m² and has a fast variety of plants and trees, oleanders, palm trees and ancient olive trees.
Because the property is fully enclosed by a wall and only accessible through a large electrical gate, and surrounded by fruit plantations from the famous house of Chabas, our guests are guaranteed maximum privacy. Certainly also ideal with children because they can’t wonder off or get lost.
Walking through the park makes you aware of the colours so typical for the Provence. The house is kept cool by three impressive and huge sycamore trees. At sunset you can switch on the lights in the park. Either from the terrace in front of the house or from the terrace alongside the heated swimming pool, the lighten park is a beautiful and unforgettable sight.
