About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Only a few blocks from downtown St. Remy de Provence, this Mas (long stone farmhouse of Provence) from 1800 has been preserved to give the most authentic flavor of genuine Provence. The house is located on a former Roman site and has kept evidences of the roman roads passing though the grounds planted with local trees, bushes and flowers (olive trees, lavender, cypresses, oleanders) that surround an unusual roman-style swimming pool. 80 kilometres from Aix.This place is meant for lovers of antique furnishings and who are sensitive to a feel of history! The five bedrooms plus one "dorm" for four children allows groups of friends or large families to be comfortable to stay in the house when not exploring all the sites and historical villages nearby.

The Mas "Bello Estello" (Beautiful star) located at the bottom of the Alpilles. It is surrounded by Olive trees and vineyards, with a beautiful open view on the Alpilles. Very private, the garden has been decorated with roman stones.The interior of the Mas respects the Provençal tradition. Nice antiques, French country furniture and fabrics give a very special charm to every room. Kitchen: traditional cooker, microwave, dish-washer. One bathroom has tub plus shower over, the other bathroom a shower.
Bedrooms: one "kids'bedroom" with 2 single beds, one double and two extra matresses, 2 bedrooms with double beds, 3 bedroom with queensize bed, an office with a double bed can also be used as a bedroom.
We now have DSL internet connection! Unlike many other houses, you can WALK to the village from our home (10 minutes)!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1900

About the owner: I and my brother have been owners of the mas since 2005, but our family has owned it for more than 100 years... I have two children, and four beautiful grandchildren. I am now retired and my daughter Céline is the one who takes care of the rentals.

Why the Owner Chose St-Rémy-de-Provence, France:
Saint Rémy de Provence is where our family is from. I was myself born there. My grandmother gave to each of her children a farmhouse when she passed away, and my father gave it to me and my brother when he died... So it is a family house, that we cherish dearly.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
It's been in our family for more than 100 years. Each stone, each tree talks to me and has a special meaning... We have a house everybody can fall in love with, with a beautiful view, no neighbours!
