Pin this Villa
Mas de la Clairiere renovation was just completed in 2017, and the owners have done a spectacular job of turning this large farmhouse into a fantastic holiday home.

The ground floor has large open spaces with all rooms facing South onto the vast terrace. This positioning allows beautiful light to seep into the house throughout the day. The living room is bright, large and elegant with large French windows giving an incredible feeling of openness.

The first floor is fitted with 6 elegant bedrooms with brand new bedding and 5 modern bathrooms. All the bedrooms are facing South with views onto the garden, pool and the famous Alpilles landscape.

The house has been equipped with a top of the line air-conditioning system servicing the entire home. The kitchen area is a dream - The combination of wood, restored flooring, stone and modern furniture offers a chic simplicity and a real living convenience for a perfect holiday in Provence.

Exceptionally quiet and private, while still only 2 kilometers from Saint Rémy de Provence center, the farmhouse boasts stunning views of the Alpilles. The house lies in a beautiful pine forest clearing with open spaces around the 16 m long swimming pool, large olive grove with 150 olive trees, lavender field, charming pine forest, and direct access to hiking paths.

With the terrain de boules, ping pong table outside and the foosball table, billiard, and a TV room inside as well, both children and adults will find all they need for a fun and relaxing stay together in this exceptional place.

Locale

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!

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.
