Charming Farmhouse Gîte in Provence-Alpilles w/ Pool (1st Floor)

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House in Saint-Andiol, near St-Remy-de-Provence, Bouches-du-Rhone, France

This property is on the first floor of a provencale farmhouse, with a capacity of 5 persons (max 6 with extra charge of €50). It's a lovely flat with a balcony and pool/gardens available for use.

Le Mas des Peupliers is a charming typical Provence country house. It is located in the middle of the orchards that occupy the Paluds’ plain, on the northern side of the Alpilles. This plain spreads from Saint-Andiol to Eygalieres and Saint Remy de Provence. Thanks to its underground water reserves this plain offers an always green landscape that contrasts with the aridity of surrounding hills. Haven of peace and coolness, le Mas des Peupliers is the ideal place to stay on the northern side of the Alpilles. From here you can visit Avignon and it's medieval cultural heritage, wonder the cobbled streets of charming St-Remy-de-Provence, visit Aix-en-Provence and even enjoy a day on the beach of Camargue in les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.

Emilie Chekroun purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Emilie Chekroun chose Saint-Andiol

Despite having strong family, business and social ties on the Cote d'Azur we decided to look for a property in the heart of Provence, where people are true and the quality of life is second to none. We love the beach and it was also a priority to find a place where we could go to the sea for a day trip.

We searched for 6 years and viewed dozens of property before buying Le Mas des Peupliers. Within minutes, we knew this was the right place for us.

A Mas is a Provence farmhouse. This one is set in the middle of a beautiful apple orchard.

At sunset there is a special light which covers nature with a touch of gold, this same light inspired famous painters such Cézanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh (who spend the last 10 years of his life in St Remy de Provence).

What makes this apartment unique

The property is calm. People who come to visit say they sleep really well here. The 2 gîtes are very well decorated and offer great comfort. St-Remy-de-Provence with its beautiful old town and renowned restaurants is 10 minutes away. Provence is on your doorstep.
