Pin this Villa
Situated on a large, private property walking distance to the village of Paradou, Mas d'Aiguebelle offers its guests complete luxury during their stay. This renovated farmhouse exemplifies class and sophistication, while retaining the authenticity of its history and surroundings.

With five bedrooms in the main house, two large living spaces, and a gorgeously spacious kitchen (with back work and storage area), there is plenty of space here for families or groups of friends to enjoy. The two living rooms sit on either side of the kitchen, with the central courtyard terraces running alongside. This ties the home together wonderfully allowing for both space and flow.

The exterior terraces are perfectly appointed with comfortable furnishings and large dining spaces. Surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens and a large pool area with outdoor kitchen, guests often find themselves easily spending entire days here in this setting.

One is also able to walk into the charming village of Paradou for a meal at the famous Bistrot du Paradou, or a quick stop for pastries at the local bakery - This village offers a small selection of the most idyllic provençal essentials. You can also take a quick 10-minute drive to the surrounding villages of Maussane, St Remy and Les Baux with over 40 restaurants and numerous shops.

*Please note the open stairwell in the main house if traveling with younger children.

We know the area very well, so I guess the house and its situation.

Absolutely none!

Would you recommend Mas d'Aiguebelle and Only Provence to friends/ family and why/ why not?
Mas d'Aiguebelle was the best house we've ever stayed in and we're not novices. We have rented in Provence every summer for over six years and this house wins hands down. Two dishwashers, two fridge freezers, a walk-in cold room, two washing machines,two dryers, a Nespresso machine, a juicer, a large and small Magimix. I could go on and on.And that's just the kitchen.Beautiful and functional and fully equipped bathrooms. A cinema which WORKED. Air conditioned throughout. A lovely herb garden. Wonderful woman who took care of the property. Generous hosts to say the least.A dream holiday home.And a stunningly huge swimming pool for us swimmers. Oh, and I haven't mentioned the cooker, nor the rotisserie, nor the barbeque, the boule court. the table tennis table, the rowing machine…. I could go on and on.

What star rating would you give Mas d Aiguebelle? (1 is lowest and 5 is the highest)
Mas d'Aguibelle gets a definite 5.

What star rating would you give Only Provence?
Only Provence gets a definite 5 too.

Any additional, thoughts, comment, suggestions would be welcome :)

I am loth to mention this, as its's our only complaint, but some of us hated the memory foam mattresses.I am not sure the hosts are aware of this, but some people have a bad reaction to memory foam.

Le Paradou is the charming name given to this tiny village situated between the Baux de Provence and Maussane les Alpilles at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range.

Although this village may well ressemble Paradise, the origins of its name Le Paradou are much more down to earth... its name comes from the ancient windmills used by the weavers who lived on the banks of the Arcoule river.

In the middle ages, the village was called St Martin de Castillon (not to be confused with the village in the Vaucluse).

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
