About the property

Estate 24 hectares fully privatized

No weddings / no events / no baptisms / 14 people max

Possibility to rent a second independent cottage


The Villa Martin estate, with its manor, its private park of 24 hectares, and its caretaker's house, is a unique place in the region. It is located halfway between Aix en Provence and Marseille, the airport and TGV stations - each 20 minutes.

Hidden in its private valley, the manor is in absolute calm. Far from the whirlwind of life, but only 5 minutes from the village and its shops, it is sheltered from view and fashion. Although the gateway to major cities, it remains protected from mass tourism and bling bling of the Cote d'Azur ... At the heart of a Natura 2000 reserve, it is the only dwelling in the forest. The next neighbor is more than 2 km away! Any opposite ... Unique atmosphere guaranteed. More than just accommodation, staying here is a real experience.

The domain is privatized for you, without sharing places or joint ownership. In short: no grumpy neighbor will come to ask you to speak less loudly, when you linger at night, past the fateful 22 hours.

The manor is comfortable all year round. It is warm and warm in winter, while its thick walls keep the cool on sunny days. Its furniture mixes period elements with more contemporary ones, selected for the sake of authenticity and quality. Provencal tapestries and paintings adorn the walls.

The 6 bedrooms are all spacious (15 to 25m2) and 4 have a balcony / terrace with views.

2 large bathrooms are available, one with shower 180, the other with double bath.

Sorry for those who do not want to miss the latest media bidding at the 8 pm newscast: the only TV in the mansion is in the living room. There is no TV in the rooms. Assumed choice. As for the wifi signal, it is on the ground floor and does not cross the floors to the rooms.

The facilities of the manor have been thought for relaxation all year round.

The 15 meter swimming pool is located in an independent and fenced area, with its own terrace and arbor. In its extension is a bowling alley to play petanque. In the meadow, two mini football cages.

The freedom of access to this equipment is total 24/24 without restriction. The terraces, the pool and the bowling alley have adequate lighting (see photos) to allow you to enjoy it whenever you want, forgetting the time and constraints of residential neighborhoods.

From the property, many walks wind through the mountains to the hills of Pagnol, with views of the sea to Mont Ventoux, through the Ste Victoire.

The kitchen is equipped with a recent Lacornue cooking piano, with double oven. For those who do not wish to bother, our cook can - on request at least 7 days in advance - prepare and deliver family dishes that you will only have to warm up.

Weber gas barbecue is also available for grilling.

The rental includes all charges included:

The beds are made upon arrival. Towels are included. The Tourist Tax is included. Statement posted in the mansion.

Winter = heating INCLUDED without oil surcharge (Yes the house is well heated!)

Cleaning is done the morning before your arrival by our 2 housekeepers. Service charged at cost price.


A second independent cottage is offered as an option for two additional persons (maximum capacity increased to 16) or for groups wishing to have more comfort with a 7th bedroom.

75m in front of the manor, the old caretaker's house has been completely restored. It is an independent house. It has its own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area.

If you do not book the caretaker's house, it will not be rented to others to guarantee privacy and not sharing places. It will simply be closed during your stay.

Caretaker's house supplement = 70 € per night


Do not hesitate for any request to which we will respond quickly.

Nous étions là pour des raisons professionnelles et avons particulièrement apprécié ce manoir à la situation exceptionnelle, son calme, son espace après nos journées de travail. David est un propriétaire très soucieux du confort de ses hôtes, ce qui est fort agréable. Nous avons été accueillis par Marianne et Jacky qui sont également aux petits soins. Rien à redire, un vrai plaisir!

Absolutes Einzelstück !

Ein mit viel Liebe ausgestattetes Haus, das keinerlei Wünsche übrig lässt! Sehr schöne Umgebung und ein Haus, sehr geeignet für eine Großfamilie. Alles war so, wie wir es uns gewünscht hatten.

Séjour idyllique dans un espace grandiose!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine en juillet 2016 à la villa Martin avec 3 familles (6 adultes et 10 enfants entre 0 et 9 ans). Il y avait largement de la place pour tous, la maison est très agréable à vivre. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les grandes terrasses carrelées ainsi que la piscine avec accès sécurisé. Il n'y a que des collines à perte de vue tout autour de la maison et de nombreuses possibilités d'excursions pédestres! Quel plaisir de déguster des apéritifs sous la voûte étoilée et de guetter les différents animaux sauvages qui se promènent paisiblement autour de la maison!

David a été de plus très courtois et serviable, venant nettoyer la piscine régulièrement et nous donnant de nombreux conseils de balades, de plages, de marchés et de visites à faire dans la région... Bref, que du plaisir pour un séjour vraiment réussi!

Week end

  • 4 of 5

Très belle maison, un vrai manoir, avec un sens du détail qui nous a tous surpris. La demeure est grande et conviviale une fois qu'on l'a adoptée avec 3 niveaux qui permettent une répartition idéale. Le cadre donne tout de suite une autre dimension au séjour.

Seule amélioration a envisager a notre sens : mettre savon et shampoing dans les chambres et les salle de bains. On a du aller en acheter.

Owner's Response: Merci pour ce commentaire et ces 4 étoiles. En tant que meublé de tourisme, nous ne fournissons pas de savon ni de shampooing et de manière générale aucun produit pour l'hygiène personnelle. Nous ne sommes pas un hôtel, ni une chambre d'hôtes, mais une maison de vacances et dans ce concept il est convenu que les personnes apportent leur nécessaire de toilette. Navré pour cette méprise.

conviviale et familiale

  • 5 of 5

Avec 8 amis j'ai passé 3 nuits a la Villa Martin. Nous avons apprécié les lieux du début a la fin du séjour. Malgré le froid en cette fin janvier, la maison est chaude et conviviale en toutes circonstances. Je ne peux que recommander. Enfin, nous tenons a rassurer les futurs vacanciers, nous n'avons pas croisé les fantômes des Martin !

Owner's Response: Votre commentaire m'a fait sourire. Concernant les fantômes, je suis moins catégorique que vous !
