About the property

Mas de Gil

In the heights of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, in a peaceful and privileged environment, the Mas de Gil is also close to the town centre.

In a 3000m² wooded park with Provencal essences, the property has an unobstructed view of the Massif des Alpilles.

The stone facade with large openings onto the garden and wrought-iron pergolas with vines, represent the art of living in Provence.

The different landscaped areas; lavender fields and olive trees, many terraces offer relaxing and varied areas.

With its 380m² surface, the farmhouse is entirely air-conditioned. The interior is warmth and refined: a subtle blend of antique charm with modern comfort.

The light-flooded living rooms are spacious:

The living room, main room of the house, is very comfortable. It boasts an open fireplace and doors opening onto the southern side of the garden.

The contemporary kitchen is very convivial,

and has a central island for nice reunions. It opens onto a dining room for 12 persons. In order to fully enjoy, huge bay windows disappear and ... the living room opens up on the Alpilles!

On the ground floor, you will find the TV room with a sofa-bed and the master bedroom with a 180x200 bed and a full bathroom, a large walk-in closet, and a direct access to a wellness area.

Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms. Two of them with a dressing room and 1 bathroom or shower room with toilets.

The mezzanine and the large entrance hall are very much appreciated for games and reading.

The guest house has a traditional kitchen, a cosy living room with a sofa-bed (160x200), a shower room with toilets and a bedroom in the attic with a large double bed (160x200).

For your relaxation:

The 15.5m x 7m swimming pool, with salt electrolysis, sun loungers, an Indian bed and a large summer living room.

The relaxation room is equipped with a Spa Jacuzzi for 6, a sauna and a cross trainer.

The maintenance of the garden and the pool is included as well as the end-of-stay cleaning.

High-quality amenities: brand name linen and towels are provided, new bedding, top-of-the-range white goods.

Our main goal is well-being!

Amazing Villa in St. Remy

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Mas de Gilles for two weeks and it did not disappoint! There were six adults in our group and it was just perfect! The location is wonderful....quiet and rural, yet close to the Village Center. The house is situated so that one has a view of the Alpilles mountains from every room in the house. The landscaping is stunning, with olive trees, lavender, hydrangeas, fig trees and grape vines. The interior of the villa is simply gorgeous. The building materials used are top quality and the home is extremely well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipped with high end appliances and and everything you need to prepare and serve some great meals. The bedroom and bathrooms are lovely and very comfortable. Linens and towels are high quality and the decor is beautiful and tasteful. Stephane, the property manager was friendly, helpful and just a phone call away. The welcome basket was a very nice touch and greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this villa for your visit to Provence. Merci!

The most amazing property over and above all expectations. Absolument extraordinaire!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had read all the reviews about this property and seen the pictures which looked amazing but the photos do not do it justice, one of the rare times I can say that a home is more beautiful in reality. The property is immaculate, extremely well appointed and beautifully decorated with paintings, vases, and knick knacks that gave us the impression that we were staying in someone's house and not a rented one. The bedrooms are large and bright and the beds very comfortable. We were 4 couples all of whom love to cook. The kitchen was fully equipped, including extras such as spices, herbs, vinegars which we were not expecting. All the equipment is modern and of the best quality. The view from the kitchen is over the Appilles mountains in the near distance and to watch the sun rise and fall each day was a joy. The owners go out of their way to be helpful and any queries we had were answered immediately. If they are not available they have someone who lives nearby who responds rapidly. There is a book at the entrance of the house with local suggestions for food shopping all of which we tried and found to be excellent. There are pamphlets and books scattered throughout the house describing the things to do in the area which we happily used. The house is located at the end of a short dirt road. The garden is large and one has the impression that we are alone, there is no noise at all. Yet we were only a 5 minute drive from a great bakery that unlike most in France stays open all day every day. The town of St Remy is 6 minutes away. The house is set close to the most renowned beautiful little villages of Provence, so we were able to explore each day a different area of Provence. Coming back to the house at the end of a day was in itself an event we all looked forward to. There is a ping pong table, decks of cards, pétanque in the driveway, and a great pool to swim in, salt instead of clorine which was a bonus. And to welcome us when we arrived a great basket filled with items from the region. We all highly recommend this house to anyone going to Provence, I can't imaging finding anything better. We are all thinking we should repeat this trip in the near future, there are still many things to do and see in the region. Thank you Beatrice and Gils for having created such a beautiful home for guests. Vraiment exceptionnel et mieux que ce que nous avions imaginer. We will be back!! Monica in the name of us all.

Beautiful Chateau with stunning landscape and pool- with just a few issues

  • 4 of 5

The chateau is stunning with a beautiful décor and has an elegant modern, rustic design, the floor to ceiling glass doors/ windows on the ground floor open to the lovely outdoor dining patio and pool making it even more wonderful. The kitchen is beautifully stocked. I can't say enough about the landscaping- there are lavender plants everywhere and olive trees, grape plants. The pool area has several areas to relax, well spaced lounge chairs and an covered alcove with a large u-shaped sectional where we took turns napping. The pool is large and beautiful with surrounding big green yard space with badminton net, where the children and adults would play volleyball and ping pong table in back. There is a wonderful woman named Stephane who was able to assist with questions and in our case secured babysitters for a night. So the reasons, I did not give 5 stars: The VRBO site refers to 5 bedrooms- we misunderstood this to be what I consider proper bedrooms i.e. there are 3 bedrooms upstairs and a large master bedroom downstairs and a guest house with an attic bedroom. We did not realize that the 5th bedroom is considered to be a tv den with a sofa-bed. I could not reasonably place an adult couple in this room. The guest house is considered to be separate and has an additional charge per night. The attic room in the guest house has a slanted roof and feels a bit dark and claustrophobic when compared to the bedrooms in the house. Other issue: 2nd floor A/C worked fine but there is no dedicated A/C or fan in the master bedroom on the ground floor as the whole ground floor is serviced by one unit that seemingly was not working well. Towards the end of our stay, we had 3 uncomfortable nights in the master bedroom. We reserved the guest house for 4 nights, and here too the A/C did not work well and our friend said nights were uncomfortable. Lastly, I was requested to give a $2500 ''check'' as deposit on day 5 of our stay. Normally, deposit requests are done prior to arrival and done thru the VRBO website. Realistically, I would not give a personal check. On day 6 ( 1 day before leaving)I received and request for funds via the VRBO website for the same amount. I should not be dealing with this while on vacation and that was disappointing as we otherwise enjoyed being here. I do think these things can be fixed and only mention knowing that these issues can be reconciled in the future for other who stay at this amazing chateau.

Owner's Response: It’s just a misunderstanding Neena… Regarding the deposit, it has to be given at the check-in or through the website with the definitive booking. The AC is brand new, but if it’s 38°C (the hotest week of the summer), as Stephane highly recommend you, it is absolutely necessary to close the windows and the doors for it to work. There is all the information in the website regarding the beds: the sofa-bed in the TV room and the guest-house. Anyway, we are happy that you enjoyed the house where you welcomed all your friends during this week (who had another house just to sleep) for your birhtday !

Five Star Property

  • 5 of 5

My first impression was positive!

The house and grounds were stunning. Six friends and I rented the house for a two week stay. We are 68-69 years old, and have been friends 50+ years. The rooms were spacious, instant hot water, comfortable beds with beautiful linens, modern and upgraded kitchen stoves and refrigerators and freezer.

The windows allowed beautiful views from throuout the house. Stephane, the housekeeper, was always available to answer questions and help when needed.

We were welcomed with lovely flowers and a gift basket filled with local items.

This property exceeded my expectations!

We enjoyed every moment staying in this house and highly recommend this property.

I am a retired Delta Flight Attendant and have traveled the world. Saint Remy was one of my favorite trips!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house, and especially the grounds, are even more beautiful than shown in the pictures. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The owner is a delight to correspond with, and provided many thoughtful touches, including fresh flowers, cold beverages, fresh fruit, and a lovely gift basket of local products. The house is a short drive to St Remy with its many shops and restaurants. It is also conveniently located for day trips to other villages within Provence. Highly recommended!

Further up the property, you will enjoy the Plateau de la Petite Crau, which is an ideal place for walks, a place where you will be able to enjoy a magnificent landscape!

In town, you will enjoy the many squares with water fountains, the streets with many art galleries and the boulevards planted with plane trees, the market on Wednesdays and gourmet restaurants.

As soon as you walk through the doors of the city, you will be charmed by the Provencal countryside and its wine-producing properties.
