Pin this Villa
As a refined, creative refuge nestled in the heart of Provence, the Mas des Arts offers the ultimate private getaway to host family gatherings, friendly reunions, intimate celebrations, weddings and wellness retreats. Entirely privatised, this exceptional artist's property becomes each guests' home from home, for a weekend or longer. Organised, tailor-made stays can be arranged down to the finest detail.

The Mas des Arts, in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, looks out towards the Alpilles range. Set in 5000m2 of grounds, the 650m2 main house, built on several levels, takes your eye on a journey through the history of art from the 1950s to today. At first glance you see a big 18th-century Provençal farmhouse standing majestically amid the trees and flowers of the garden, where you'll also spy some amusing artworks – a first hint of the originality of this place, its special identity. The Mas des Arts is an artist's house, decorated by a famous painter in the 1950s with an effusion of colours and mosaics. The style suggests the bohemian life beloved of many artists, hinting at freedom and a touch of talented craziness. A variegated exuberance of colour and design.

The six bedrooms are all different. Each is named for a colour and is fragrant with a particular perfume by True Grace. These large, light rooms are invitingly dreamy, with big beds, silky bed linen and bathrooms steeped in the emblematic scent of Hermès Eau d'Orange Verte.

The fully-enclosed 5000m2 estate borders the Voie Aurélia, the old Roman road along the north side of the Alpilles range. On one terrace people relax on the grass beside the heated pool. This is the setting for all your holiday fantasies! A swim, a sublime siesta, an evening with drinks by the pool ...barbecues and party nights ... and always that fabulous view of the Alpilles. The pool house boasts a very artsy 1970s oval bar and a summer kitchen.

And what would Provence be without a pétanque party? The pétanque court is near the pool, a few step further down.

Situated in the heart of the Alpilles, Saint Rémy is one of the "must-sees" in Provence. Surrounded by lush green perfumed valleys, its ancient streets are lined with beautifully restored old houses... you will soon be seduced by Saint Rémy's charm! While strolling through the narrow winding streets you will discover fantastic old fountains, shady squares, picturesque restaurants and elegant boutiques. Square From the place Jean Jaurès to the gates of the old town, you will come across a long succession of "hôtels particuliers" (often converted into museums or art galleries), convents, chapels, and ornate houses from the 17th and 18th century. The beauty of the countryside and the quality of light has inspired many artists, writers and painters. Without a doubt, the most famous was Vincent Van Gogh who produced more than150 paintings of the countryside surrounding Saint Rémy de Provence. You can walk to the very same places painted by the artist and discover the mountain of St Rémy, fields of wheat and coquelicots (wild flowers), olive trees and cypruses - all just as it was more than a century ago. Triumphal archSaint Rémy de Provence is an historic village built on one of the oldest archeological sites in Europe. Visitors can fossick among the remains of the "Comptoir de Glanum" which was founded in the 3rd century BC, before control passed to the Romans under Julius Cesar. The ruins have seen the passing of several civilisations and you can visit the "grands Thermes", the long residential avenue, the temple and the natural spring of a true gallo-roman city, dating from 30 to 10 years before Christ. Two important monuments are visible next to the site : l'Arc de Triomphe and the Mausolée des Antiques. Following a logical procession of the excavations at Glanum, you can then visit the archeological centre at the Hôtel de Sade, a splendid example of 15th century architecture
