Mas du Ciel is a beautifully renovated character property with contemporary designed interior complemented by several objets d'art that adorn the house. The property is only 2km from the fashionable village of Eygalières and a short drive from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, with celebrated views made famous by the works of Vincent Van Gogh.

The interior offers a stylish and mature sanctuary and will no doubt prove popular with adults and children alike. If you are not outside enjoying the Provençal sunshine, the spacious living room, with beautiful white stone floors and minimalist furniture, provides a haven for relaxation. The bedrooms have their own bathrooms, exposed stone walls and magnificent timber beams are a particular feature that helps retain the original lovely character within the house. 

There is plenty of space outside for games, a terrace for dining and best of all, the pool is 15m long and large enough for plenty of fun and a proper swim.

Eygalières (2km) is popular with Parisians, artists and painters and is arguably one of the prettiest villages in the ‘Alpilles’ mountains that provide its backdrop. There is a Friday market when the cafés and bistros become lively with locals. ‘Les Alpilles’ are lovely for walking and its villages are quintessentially Provençal. We recommend a visit to Les Baux-de-Provence in particular (22km), a medieval village built on a spectacular rocky outcrop, and Arles (30km) with its Roman treasures, shady squares and Camarguais culture.

The property is semi detached and part of a small hamlet of neighbouring houses.

It is also lived in and fully furnished, and can be explored by guided tour by costumed guides. The gardens are open to the public on certain days and include ponds, fountains, statues, and even a 30-metre long underground passage.

Archaeological Site of Glanum

These Roman ruins near Saint-Rémy date back to about 100BC although it is thought there was a native population here from about 500BC. Around 260AD, the town was destroyed by barbarian invasions but the survivors founded a village nearby that was to become Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The ruins were uncovered in the early 20th century, and include some superb classical architecture.

Visitors can find out about this exceptional artist, who lived in Saint-Rémy for a year, and his influence on 20th and 21st century art. The museum's permanent collection also includes work by other artists such as Bernard Buffet and Albert Gleizes, and there are two or three temporary exhibitions a year.

Sur le pont

Visit the famous 'Pont d’Avignon' of the children's song, although only 4 of the bridge's original 22 piles are still standing so be careful where you dance! Also not far away is another very famous bridge, the Pont du Gard, a three-tier Roman aqueduct.

Avignon

The principal city in the region, Avignon’s historic centre includes a 12th century Romanesque cathedral Notre Dame des Doms and the 14th century Palais des Papes, an immense Gothic building with formidable walls up to 18 feet thick! There are, of course, also many restaurants and cafés, shops, parks and squares to explore.

Set on a rocky plateau, there are superb views on a clear day down to Arles and the Camargue. There is some beautiful architecture to see, but also just a lovely atmosphere of an authentic Provencal village with pleasant terrace cafés and art galleries to browse.
