Take in the luscious sights and scents of the Provence countryside with an escape to your own private villa near Le Mas in the southeast of France. The Le Mas Villa is a secluded retreat that is surrounded by 17 hectares (42 acres) of award winning vineyards, and features breathtaking views of the Massif des Maures, a protected national park. You’ll enjoy a personal resort that’s miles away from ordinary, thanks to a private heated saltwater pool (only heated from the end of May until the end of September), multiple balconies with vineyard vistas and lush manicured gardens that feature all the joyous scents of Provence – lavender, rosemary, wisteria, olive and mulberry trees. The ensuing estate is beautifully secluded, with a gated entrance at the end of a 500 metre drive. However, guests can easily explore the charming villages in the area where fresh local markets, lovely shops and medieval buildings all set the scene for memorable days of exploration. Don’t miss nearby Vence and Gourdon, often considered among the most beautiful villages in Provence. Or visit the famous village of Grasse to shop for perfume. Drive south to the coast where Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez and countless beautiful vistas await.
Inside, you will enjoy all the comforts of a high quality resort with amenities and ample room for families to spread out and enjoy the scene. Villa Le Mas boasts 5 bedrooms, with accommodation for up to 13 people, which feature peaceful views of the garden, the rear courtyard and private pool, or the acres of vineyards from private balconies. All bedrooms also have en-suite bathrooms to ensure a comfortable stay. For family gatherings, the expansive kitchen is perfect for whipping up fresh meals from the local markets. Enjoy dining in the indoor dining area near the terrace or at an outside table in the gracious courtyard. A refined living area with ample seating and a charming piano will also be a favourite gathering space, although sunny days at the pool and exploring gardens will entice you to spend leisure time outside. After a long stroll through the vineyard or a full day of discovering the beauty of southern France, you will agree that life is always sweeter in Provence.
