Pin this Villa
Located in a quaint Alpilles village near Saint Rémy de Provence, Mas du Bien-Etre boasts a fabulous location paired with a beautifully high standard renovation completed in 2018.

Surrounded by the stunning Alpilles peaks, this elegant property sits on a quiet little street which allows easy access for visits to surrounding villages like Arles, Saint Rémy de Provence, les Baux de Provence, Maussane les Alpilles, and Eygalières all within less than a 20-minute drive.

The stylized decoration was done in harmony with absolute comfort; both design and convenience being top priorities to the owners. The kitchen and living rooms on the ground floor have large bright windows opening onto a beautiful terrace which benefits in summer from the shade of the large and picturesque plane tree.

The villa is as convenient for families as it is for couples traveling together in Provence. You can walk into the center of this village of St Etienne du Gres in just three minutes, where you'll find a wonderful local ambiance - bakery, café, restaurant and small grocer among the amenities here.

Saint Etienne du Grès is a small, classified picturesque village nestling at the foot of the Alpilles, a few minutes frome Saint Rémy de Provence, and Tarascon and very close to Arles.

Our guests enjoy the peace and quiet of the magnificent countryside only a short distance from the town. In the eastern part of the village (on the way to St Rémy) there are beautiful, old country-style houses and farms which have been carefully restored. There are also attractive houses and private mansions surrounded by elegant landscaped gardens, looking as though they come straight out of a glossy magazine. The western part of the village is made up of more modern, simple houses with pretty, well-kept little gardens.

There are superb opportunities for rambling in the countryside around the village. The hills, covered with sweet-scented pine trees, beckon with the promise of a pleasant few hours in the midst of beautiful greenery. On top of the hill to the east of the village you will find the chapel of Notre Dame du Château. It dates from the 11th century and is the oldest in the region. Visiting the chapel provides an excellent opportunity for a beautiful walk and once you get there you’ll be overwhelmed by its tranquillity and the serene, restful atmosphere of the spot. During the walk you will enjoy beautiful views of Tarascon, Arles and Châteaurenard.

Don’t miss the fruit and vegetable market which takes place 3 times a week in the village. Market gardeners, farmers and shoppers, as well as tourists and walkers, gather for this colourful spectacle, rich in tastes and fragrances, where the accents are fruity too.

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.
