Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mas Des Anges for a week in August. It's a very beautiful house set in a lovely garden and is a fabulous place for a large family to stay in Provence. All the bedrooms are really nice and there's a big lounge.

The pool is right by the house and there's a large outdoor dining area under a veranda by the pool/house.

The area is great. Paradou has two nice restaurants plus a mini-market, butcher and bread shop. Mausanne is very close by - almost joined on to Paradou and there are a lot of restaurants there. Les Baux is a couple of kms away.

We've stayed in quite a few houses in Provence over the years and this is one of the nicest.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Well - what can I say - we absolutely loved this place. I really can't begin to describe what a lovely week we had. My sister asked me how I would score it out of 10 and I said 9.5. When she asked what the missing half was I replied it was because I had to go home at the end of the week! I seriously didn't want to leave! Both our families loved it so much - it was just perfect for us all. The boys hired some super bikes from a man with a van who delivers and collects - they were thrilled and cycled for miles off the beaten track along canal paths, past fields of sun flowers and across the mountain ranges - they were SO happy. All the kids ranging from age 6 to 20 were non stop swimming, cycling, football, table tennis - you name it they did it. We also had my disabled mother with us and the property was great for her although there is one step into the shower and one down in to the bathroom which wasn't a problem for us but may be for other disabled guests so best check to be sure.

Overall our whole group absolutely loved this place despite my grumpy half for having to actually leave at the end of the week! The owner is really lovely and helpful and has amazing taste and I honestly admire her for being able to rent out her beautiful home to total strangers. We were most envious of the people arriving the day we were leaving!

Honestly - you cannot fail to fall in love with this place. It's just heavenly and we cannot wait to return. Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday which has created so many happy memories for us all.

Owner's Response: wow ! equally what can I say ! so lovely that everyone loves it ! I have 3 grown up children who have had many many happy holidays here and they still want to come , and now bring my lovely grandson too. For those who dont know the area it is truly magical- the real Provence that everyone has seen on films but rarely finds. As you enter the gates there is a field of lavender and the house is so comfortable its difficult to leave but leave you must as the villages around are all wonderful and cycle paths are safe and numerous !

A nice family home

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house with our four children and their various friends who joined throughout the two weeks. Its an easy 45 minute drive from Marseille airport, so good if there is lots of dropping off and collecting. The house is very much a home from home and filled with lovely things belonging to the owner which are left for everyone to use - a good selection of books, DVDs etc and a well laid out home with plenty of space so no one is tripping over each other. The pool is nice and large and the gardens and home are well maintained with the housekeeper being easily reached and able to sort out any problems. The kitchen is very well equipped which is good when you have lots of teens to feed and the house is easy to maintain and whilst very nice, not too fussy that you are frightened to touch anything. Although every bedroom has a bathroom, most have baths rather than showers. The village - Paradou - is a little further away than we thought. Dinner at the Bistro Paradou was very good, but the walk is about 30 minutes and in the dark would not have been easy (but the Bistro owner took us home). The area is very lovely and there is plenty to see around although a car is essential as most things are about 30 minutes to an hours drive and taxis not easy. The house is easy to miss on arrival - second drive on the right down the lane so be sure to arrive in daylight to find it! The owner is extremely helpful and the process of booking the property and recommendations for restaurants etc was very easy. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and this house is perfect if you are looking for an authentic Provencal holiday.

A perfect spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mas des Anges in August 2014 for one week and enjoyed one of our best ever family holidays there. There were 6 of us including 4 teenagers/young adults aged 15-20.
The house itself is beautiful and is finished to a very high standard in a typical Provençal style with all the facilities in good working order, some brand new.
The villa is situated just outside the village of Paradou which is a 20 minute walk to the local patisserie, butchers and Spar shop, or 10 minutes on one of the bikes provided.
Whilst not remote the villa is both private and peaceful; it is not overlooked and has views over the lovely gardens and hills beyond.
There are many places to sit and enjoy the view either in full sun or shade.
The pool is large and there is plenty of room for sunbathing. There is a pool house with sofas etc but we didn't use it as the weather was lovely enough to sit outside all the time.
There is lots of information in the villa concerning local attractions and restaurants and there is a lot you can see and do within a half hour's drive of the villa. We particularly liked the Carrieres et lumieres at Baux. Also Alison the owner kindly booked 2 of the highly recommended restaurants for us ahead of time and we were not disappointed with either (Bistrot Paradou and Chateau d'Establon).
In all we loved this villa, it was home from home in an idyllic setting and probably one of the prettiest villas we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in lots of them!)
We would highly recommend this villa for a family holiday as there was a good mix of cultural activities and chilling by the pool. We hope to return!

Owner's Response: its always lovely to get a review such as this as it lets us know that we are getting something right ! I always ask clients for feedback as we are constantly striving to update and provide the sort of holiday home that we too enjoy ! This year we put 2 new shower rooms and last year we resurfaced the pool so that everything should be wonderful and we can enjoy it too :)). We welcome families of all ages and are delighted when they have a perfect holiday and wanting to return is the ultimate compliment. Thankyou !

A hard place to leave

  • 5 of 5
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.
