A hard place to leave

One of the most important features of this house is the location, I have been to this area of France maybe 7 or 8 times in the last 6 years and in my opinion where it is situated gets the best out of the region. The house itself is nestled into a shallow valley with a splendid view of rolling hills, meadows and farmland, it feels as though you have the entire valley all to yourself, it's so secluded and tranquil. But a few minutes drive/ten mins walk and you are in Paradou where you can buy groceries and supplies, a further 5 mins drive and you are in Maussane, a charming village with a lively square and some larger grocery stores and patisseries. Beyond that you are equidistant from Marseille and Aix an hours drive to the East and Montpellier an hour to the West, the ancient towns of Avignon and Arles are 20 and 30 minutes away respectively and closer to home you have gorgeous St. Remy de Provence, Fonvielle and a whole bunch of other charming little villages full of great restaurants, more vineyards than I can count and amazing hiking and cycling terrain. In my opinion you will miss out on far too much without a car, but if your plan is to live it up in this house then you won't be disappointed with that either.

The house itself is so well prepared, there honestly isn't a thing we felt we missed or needed in the time we spent here. There is a bunch of bicycles here to use, a table tennis table, bowls, a big swimming pool, a wood fire pizza oven, a great kitchen for cooking with friends, they have like 100 dvds and they're actually ones you want to watch! Not just like 5 discs that came free with readers digest, I think its perfect for people of any age or demographic. It is very cosy and is decorated in the provincial style of the area that we love. What we also enjoyed was information left by the owners in binders about where to find the best vineyards and markets and restaurants etc. it really cut the corners, and the amount of freshly prepared towels and bed sheets they have, the house is very well stocked.

For us and the time we spent here, we really wish we didn't have to leave, but we do so feeling thoroughly relaxed and revitalised.

A very relaxing haven

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful period house with great facilities (decent size pool/pretty garden/large kitchen-diner) in an old village close to all the major sites of Languedoc and Eastern Provence. The house had a very calm ambience (beautifully decorated) and was also very secure (only access is through a courtyard gate, which locks). This made the house very quiet and relaxing (the only sound being the bells of the sheep in a nearby field). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My only caveat wd be that the website details don't make clear this house, while absolutely ideal for adults and older children, is not particularly suited to toddlers/babies because the bedrooms are all independently accessed externally around a courtyard (ie there is no internal corridor so parents can't hear what is happening in any of the other bedrooms from their room and a woken child wd have to wander across a courtyard to get to them) and the only access to the first floor TV room/upstairs bedrooms is also only external (via uneven steps). Consequently we would have had a complete hernia on arrival if our kids had still been little!!!

Owner's Response: Whilst I agree the house is beautiful I am worried that Martin has confused the house with another as we don't have an internal courtyard nor an externally accessed bedroom up an irregular staircase The bedrooms are separated from each other via the central large living room with 2 bedrooms upstairs each with en suite bathrooms and 2 bedrooms downstairs on the other side of the house which share a bathroom and separate toilet and hallway. The fifth bedroom is indeed by itself with a brand new walk in shower room and separate corridor but all within the same house
It is a large house and little tiny children would presumably be in rooms next to their parents which is possible. We put my daughter with her little son in the downstairs bedroom wing so that we can hear them from the sitting room and terrace but it is a large house so a baby alarm could be useful.

Beautifully Renovated Farm House

We had a very happy and peaceful holiday in this villa with its generous pool and pretty garden. Perfectly located for exploring Provence and the Carmargue, there is plenty to do and the local village has a vibrant 'place' perfect for casual suppers and people watching.

Having teenagers who like to 'chill', we also found Mas Des Anges a very relaxing and friendly environment in which to enjoy reading, swimming and card games both inside and out.

We found the owner very helpful, providing us with lots of information and keen to assist us with any queries.

I would definitely recommend this house to friends especially those who appreciate The Provence style of interior design.
