Pin this Villa
A completely renovated farmhouse with four en-suite bedrooms, just minutes from the center of St Remy, this property offers an authentic and comfortable provencal experience.

With air-conditioned bedrooms, contemporary kitchen, and fully renovated bathrooms, the comfort abounds. Yet this comfort is also matched in authenticity - maintaining the charm of a provencal garden, genuine stonework, and ambiance of the region.

With a dining courtyard facing the home, and a fully shaded lounge area by the pool, there is ample space to enjoy the outdoors. A private tennis court sits just beyond the pool, settled in among the 2 acres of garden and olive trees. A new basketball demi-court is also here, offering even more amenities for families.

For a property within a 25-30 minute walk to the very center of St Remy (or minutes' drive), the space and amenities truly abound.

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. The most AMAZING property! We never wanted to leave Mas de Montplaisir!

House was great, better than expectations. Pictures don’t do justice. Also great outdoor dining areas and landscaping. All the nice artwork and personal touches was a special treat. It was not like a typical rental, but like moving in to someones home.

Chef at house and wine tour were great. Chef Yvan was exceptional.

Areas for improvement:
Would be nice to have a shower in the master bath.

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.
