Our plot is secluded, offers good privacy and is situated on Allée du Golf which is in the quiet original part of the domain yet only 5 minutes from the village which offers a mini supermarket, newsagent, gift shop, wine bar and restaurants.
In addition to the swimming pool, table tennis table and boules pitch, we also have a large jacuzzi. We provide bats and balls for the table tennis, boules etc. and there are also plenty of toys for use in the pool. There is a covered dining terrace and a built-in bbq. A second furnished covered terrace is outside the master bedroom. There are loungers, deck chairs and benches for use in the garden. What are you waiting for? Do you want to be able to relax in the heated pool or jacuzzi after a day out visiting the local sites? Would your children like to play table tennis or a game of boules? Perhaps you would like to sit on one of our many terraces with a glass of wine, admire the views or cook your dinner on the built in bbq. How about some star gazing in the clear skies? Mas des Hirondelles is a definite "home from home".
On site there is an 18 hole championship designed golf course and an easier 6 hole course. Apart from golf, there are bicycles to rent, tennis courts, crazy golf, horse riding, and two large pools, one with two water chutes and waves and two children's playgrounds. There is even a crèche on site. You can hire a pedalo on the lake or, outside the domain, you can hike in the Luberon or Alpilles, hire a canoe at Gordes or sample the local wines. If you are an aspiring artist, the Provençal light and colours really are an inspiration. Aix en Provence, Avignon, Nîmes and Arles are all within easy driving distance. There are some beautiful beaches within an hour's drive and the marina at Marseille boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. Provence boasts the most hours of sunshine per year and in 2017 Marseille had 63 more hours of sunshine than Nice! There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Marseille and Avignon airports only 45 minutes’ drive.

I live in England with my husband. We have 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren. We spent much of our married life in rental accommodation, living and working overseas. I have always loved France and worked there for 2 years before getting married. As a family, we have spent several very happy holidays staying in other people's gîtes and as a result I believe I know what families are looking for when renting a house for their holidays.
Tricia purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Tricia chose Mallemort
We love Pont Royal because of the fantastic facilities in the area. At present there is an 18 hole championship designed golf course in the Domaine and a new 6 hole course was completed in 2010. Apart from golf, you can hike in the Luberon or the Alpilles, rent a bicycle, play tennis, hire a canoe at Gordes or sample the many local wines. If you are an aspiring artist, the Provençal light and colours really are an inspiration. Aix en Provence, Avignon and Arles are all within easy driving distance. There are some beautiful beaches within an hour's drive and the marina at Marseille boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Marseille airport only 45 minutes drive away.
What makes this Villa unique
Our property is situated in a quiet residential street less than 5 minutes walk from the bustle of the village square with its mini supermarket, newsagent, gift shops and restaurants. It is very much our second home and we have furnished it as such, with good quality furnishings, some of which we bought while living abroad. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is plenty of space with a sitting room downstairs and a TV and computer area upstairs with an excellent selection of books and games. In addition to the swimming pool, table tennis table and boules pitch, we also have a large jacuzzi - one of the few rental properties to have one! We provide bats and balls for the table tennis, boules etc. and there are also plenty of toys for use in the pool.

Gorgeous villa, with pools, garden and dining terrace with amazing views!
We had really lovely time here. Eating every meal outside and enjoying the views. The house has every comfort you can think of. The beds, towels, sofas are all lovely; you feel really spoiled here! Having the pool and jacuzzi created hours of entertainment for everyone. This is the place where both my children really learnt to swim, as the jacuzzi makes the ideal place for nervous swimmers! And there are lots of lovely shady spots to read your book. We also made some great trips to nearby zoo, some beautiful walks/hikes in the luberon, the pretty nearby village of Lauris and a day trip to |es Baux-de-Provence to see the castle and the light and sound show Carrières de Lumières, and made two visits to the lovely creperie on the hillside of Vernègues.
Thank you very much for your very kind review. It was lovely to have your family here again for another visit and I am delighted that you all enjoyed yourselves. There is so much to see and do in the area and I am sure, should you visit us again, that you will find plenty of other places to visit. Of particular interest to children and adults is the Royaume des Arbres in nearby Charleval and also the Parc des Labyrinthes on the way to La Roque d'Antheron. Hopefully, you will all return for another visit.
Excellent séjour à Pont Royal
Accueil parfait, maison et environnement conformes aux descriptifs, très confortable et complète, très belle piscine + Jacuzzi sécurisées, magnifique vue sur les montagnes, environnement de qualité sur le domaine golfique de Pont Royal aux abords du Lubéron, excellent séjour à tout point de vue...
Merci beaucoup pour un avis si élogieux. Il est bon de savoir que nos
efforts sont bien remerciés car nous essayons de faire tout ce qu'il faut
pour que nos clients s'amusent bien. Nous espérons vous revoir à l'avenir.
Great stay in Mas des Hirondelles!
We have four children aged from 7 to 16 and this is the 3rd year we rented the Mas des Hirondelles in Pont-Royal.
We again had a great stay. The house is perfectly located in the domain, allowing to enjoy the activities of P&V while being quiet and relaxed when wanted.
The pool is great , and the heated jacuzzi is a great plus. The children spent hours in it during the hottest days.
We enjoy cultural visits, and many opportunities are within 45 to one hour drive, which is perfect to find the best schedule to please all the family.
We will come back!
Thank you very much for your review. As you say, there is plenty of culture within 45 mins - 1 hour drive of Pont Royal and there is always something different to visit each year. Fortunately, our house is within easy walking distance of the village to enjoy Pierre et Vacances activities but is far enough away to escape the noise and find some peace.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Mas des Hirondelles -great views of the Luberon
As a group our family and friends have been coming down to Mas des Hirondelles since 2010. The house is fabulous and the annexe has always provided great flexibility for teenagers, young adults and couples. The house is beautifully furnished and very well equipped and the managing agent is always available to offer support and information. The views of the Luberon from the terrace cannot be beaten, particularly with a glass or more of rose. There is plenty to occupy any visitors whether that be villages to visit, vineyards to sample or restaurants to enjoy.
Thank you very much for your review. Prospective clients always like first hand opinions as it makes it much easier to gauge whether a property is suitable for their needs or not. As you have discovered over the many years that you have stayed in our house, the annex has proved to be an excellent addition and this year we have installed a television and dvd player which we feel should add to the enjoyment. Hopefully we shall see you again in the future.
Second stay in the Villa. Perfect
Beautiful view, quite place and perfect situation to play Golf.
Third time of staying in this beautiful property, cannot fault it, can't wait for next year
So glad you continue to like our house. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
