Pin this Villa
Le Mas de Pierrefeu is an exceptionally renovated stone farmhouse located near a local village and peacefully surrounded by a beautiful pine forest.

Convenience and privacy abound here, as the property is situated 45 minutes from the striking seaside cliffs of Cassis to the south and only 45 minutes from the center of Aix en Provence to the north.

This incomparable home offers an expansive exterior space with century old oaks and pine trees. Manicured gardens with fragrant flowers surround the open lawns in every direction, while a large pool complete with comfortable terraces welcomes you to relaxation. An abundance of activities are available for guests of all ages, and a beautiful path guides you to the well-lit private tennis court.

The interior areas of the house are very spacious. The kitchen boasts all modern amenities and more, while the living room is spectacular by size, design and inviting high ceilings.

The decor here is simultaneously modern and chic, offering immense comfort and boundless space.

In addition to the spacious living areas and bedrooms of the property, guests will find a stunning sound-proof cinema / music room with professional sound system on the basement level.

Protected by the Montagne Ste Victoire which rises to 1,011m. Aix is surrounded by a countryside full of authentic Provencal houses and traditional French style gardens. The name Aix comes from the source discovered when the city was founded in 123 BC by the Romans.

Aix was the capital of Provence in the 15th century, Wealthy merchants and local dignitaries helped turn this city into the Florence of Provence as we know it today.

One can find all the beauty of the noble Provence of the17th and 18th centuries: handsome houses of the upper class, private mansions, city squeres bursting with flowers, ancient fountains and shaded narrow streets.

Aix was the inspiration to many of the greatest writers and painters : Guigou, Stendhal, Mistral, Zola, and Cézanne, There is even a special Cezanne tour which one can follow through the streets of Aix stopping at points marked with a C.

As a city of art and culture Aix possesses a wealth of superbe architecture that has been carefully preserved and restored. Walking through the Cours Mirabeau and the Rue Gaston de Saporta one can admire the private mansions with their sculptured doors and windows and the intricate iron work on the balconies. Discerning shoppers choose the elegant boutiques in the quartier Mazarin.

Each summer the International Festival of Lyric Arts and Music unites acclaimed prima donnas and maestros in a fabulous selection of singing and music. The Dance Festival is also world reputed.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS).
