Location: 3 kms Maillane (10-15 minutes walk to village), 8 kms northwest of St-Rémy-de-Provence (10 mm drive), 20 kms south of Avignon.
If you enjoy both village and country life, then this old Provençal mas is a perfect fit! Located near the village of Maillane, it’s a few-minutes drive to the bakery, cafés and grocery. Also within 10 minutes drive is St-Rémy-de-Provence, a celebrated town with its old Roman monuments, shops, restaurants, cafés, and a bustling weekly open-air market.
The old farmhouse is set in a spacious garden with expansive lawns, an array of trees and beautifully landscaped beds with lavender, oleander and other flowering plants and shrubs. In the center of the lawn is a lovely bassin-style swimming pool. At the far end is a pool house with covered terrace and toilet facilities. Overlooking the garden and pool and running the length of the house is a wonderful covered terrace. The terrace includes an outdoor salon with comfortable rattan sofa and armchairs and a dining area with teak table and chairs for 8 people. This beautiful setting is ideal for relaxing in a quiet spot, socializing and enjoying leisurely al fresco meals.
Inside, the old mas has been totally renovated with no expense spared. All building materials and appliances are of the highest quality. Stylish contemporary furnishings are paired with selected antique pieces, all accented by colorful handcrafted carpets and original works of art. And with all comforts and conveniences – including air conditioning for warmer months and high speed internet access – this is a home that invites you to settle in and enjoy life in the south of France.
The formal entryway opens to two handsome living areas with polished marble floors and white walls. The first is a more casual den with comfortable seating including a cream-colored leather sofa and several armchairs grouped around an upholstered ottoman-coffee table. Opposite on the wall is a large flat-screen television. An archway opens to a larger living room. This is a spacious and welcoming room with an entire wall of wrought-iron framed glass windows and doors opening to the terrace and grounds. A long chocolate-brown sofa and black arm chairs are grouped by two dark wood coffee tables in front of the fireplace. A large red carpet, colorful throw pillows, occasional tables and lamps, an assortment of antique pieces and original works of art enhance the room’s unique design.
Another archway opens from the larger living room to the dining room with a heavy wood table that extends to seat up to 12 people. Built-in cabinets provide ample storage for dishes, glasses and cutlery. And a bar with small sink is the perfect spot to arrange drinks. Double doors from the dining area lead to the well-designed kitchen. Long galley-style, it features gray wood cabinets, gray tiled counters and all appliances including a professional-level stove with gas burners and ovens. French doors from both the dining room and kitchen open to the grounds.
There are a total of 5 bedrooms, each with its own full ensuite bathroom including toilet facilities. Four are upstairs off a long corridor. The bedrooms are equipped with quality bedding and feature pretty bedcovers, curtains, bedside tables, lamps and ample wardrobe space. The bathrooms have fine ceramic tilework and contemporary fixtures. At the top of the stairs on the corner is a large master suite with king bed convertible to twins. The ensuite bathroom has a separate shower, tub and double sinks. Two other suites have queen beds and ensuite bathrooms with showers. The master and queen suites all have televisions and overlook the garden and pool. The fourth bedroom is smaller and has twin beds and ensuite bathroom with shower.
A stunning home with exceptional character and style in a sought-after, central location. The new addition is on the ground floor opening directly on to the garden, 25 meter with an ensuite bathroom and shower, fully AC just like the rest of the house, king bed and beamed ceiling.
