If you’re looking for an idyllic villa for four in a beautiful rural spot in Provence, south-west France, then look no further than Le Mazet. This immaculately furnished three-bedroom, three-bathroom villa is situated on the edge of the beguiling Aplilles National Park, just a stone’s throw from the villages of St Rémy-de-Provence and Eygalieres, both of which are well-known for their restaurants, cafes, markets and culture.
Le Mazet is constructed from traditional materials and consequently blends in seamlessly with the rural Provencal landscape that surrounds it. Internally, the villa is beautifully stylish, spacious and airy, with all the mod-cons guests will need for a comfortable stay in the heart of France’s most captivating of rural vistas.
Le Mazet is geared up for spending time in the favourable climate this part of France basks in for much of the year, with a pergola covered terrace and dining area, an enclosed garden and a private swimming pool. There is even a Boules pitch to pass the time as the steaks sizzle on the barbecue.
Being Van Gogh country, the area is steeped in artistic history and culture, where guests can meander down trails and visit museums devoted to the great artist’s work. The region is also well known for its Roman influence, particularly in the city of Arles with its fascinating amphitheatre and iconic Pont du Gard.
Just outside the historic town of St Rémy-de-Provence is the Roman site of Glanum, one of Europe’s largest archaeological sites.
