Mas des Chênes was originally a 17th century simple Bergerie, or shepherd's abode. Upon entering the grand tiled foyer it is immediately evident that great care has been taken in the renovation of this ancient bergerie. Warm colors and tasteful furnishings reveal a decor that exudes casual elegance in Provençe. The house has an open design, with sweeping arches linking the foyer to the sitting room then into the dining room which opens up to the terrace.
Seated on the terrace, which is draped with climbing roses, you can take in the views of the vast gardens and pool area. The extensive grounds have several shaded areas under large mature trees, offering different sitting areas ideal for mid-day tea or an evening aperitif.
Mas des Chênes has a resident cat that is cared for by the housekeeper.
