This beautiful holiday rental house in Provence dates from 1658. Mas La Monaque enjoys great privacy with over 7 acres of grounds through which you can walk and view the colour and ambience of this wonderful part of Provence. It is located at the foot of the Alpilles range close to the medieval village of Les Baux de Provence and between the villages of Maussane les Alpilles and Mouries - two of the largest olive oil producing centres in France. Make sure you try the "AOC" classified extra virgin olive oil that is produced at Mas La Monaque from our olive trees.

Pool The accommodation in this provencal rental house is outstanding. There are five large air-conditioned bedrooms, all with private ensuite bathrooms, and two beautifully furnished 'salons'. The house is centrally heated throughout. The dining room overlooks the rear gardens through a conservatory styled area close to the modern kitchen which is fully equipped in a traditional Provencal style. There is a large study off one of the bedrooms, with a covered terrace overlooking the rear gardens.

Grounds A number of outside terraces enable you to relax and enjoy the fine views of the gardens with its olive groves, irises, and lavender which are typical of this ancient region. And there's a superb secluded 12 metre swimming pool with diving board where you can experience the natural tranquility of Mas La Monaque in complete privacy. You can enjoy the Provencal game of "petanque" on the boules pitch under the pine trees, or simply take in a leisurely walk exploring the terrain.

Les Baux-de-Provence Les Baux de Provence (left) - just a 5 minute drive from Mas La Monaque, your rental house in Provence - is officially classified and labelled as "one of the most beautiful villages in France". The medieval village has a wonderful selection of shops selling Provencal products as well as several restaurants with excellent reputations. A little further afield is Saint Remy de Provence, a charming village with beautifully restored old houses surrounded by lush countryside. The traditional Wednesday morning market in St Remy is renowned throughout Provence, and the beauty of the local countryside and quality of light inspired Vincent Van Gogh to produce more than 250 paintings around Arles and St Remy.

In addition to the area surrounding Mas La Monaque being so richly endowed in beautiful villages and historic regional towns such as Arles and Avignon, there's also a wide variety of local attractions including several golf courses, and daily outdoor Provencal street markets world-renowned for their atmosphere, their colours, their food, and their bargains.
