Pin this Villa
Mas du Rougadou is a beautiful authentic Provencal farmhouse (mas) whose renovation has just been finished. This stone house is situated within walking distance of St Rémy de Provence, one of the most lively villages in Provence.

The Mas is located at the end of a private drive - in a quiet corner. A genuine Provencal farmhouse offering old stones and charm with modern comfort and amenities - fantastic for families with children.

From the outdoor terrace, you will hear the sounds of a small spring flowing through the fountain, and the cicadas chirping in the summer sun. It is truly a warm and peaceful place to be for a a few weeks away. St Rémy has so many restaurants and shops that you will not need to leave town!

Please note that 2-week bookings (or longer) are preferred here when possible.

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. Mas du Rougadou is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. It has great proximity to St Remy. The house is perfectly equipped with everything. Our two week stay was simply fantastic. We cannot wait to return.

Our experience was perfect. We had a rather shaky start to our vacation because we were in Nice the evening of the terror attack but we really appreciated the hospitality of the family who owned the house who let us come early. The house was absolutely perfect. In such a great location walking distance to St Remy and within driving distance to major towns and wineries.The house was also beautifully kept - the bedrooms were pristine and very clean and the amenities were very modern. We have stayed in many rental homes in Europe and this was by far the best.

Areas for improvement:
Not really.

I would absolutely recommend anyone to rent the house. It was just a great house especially for a family to get together. It was perfectly kept and had all the amenities needed. The chef experience was also very good. Chef Marie food was delicious - it was a bit on the pricy side which is the only comment.

I highly recommend using Only Provence. They were extremely helpful at making sure we had everything to ensure our stay was perfect.

Dealing with Only Provence was great. very quick response times and clear answers to questions.

Mas du Rougadou was extraordinary and the chef we had come to the house was exemplary.

Areas for improvement:
Can't think of any

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mas du Rougadou.
The owner was wonderful providing great support when required.
She provided a large platter of fresh fruits, vegetables and conserves on our arrival which we truly appreciated.
The home is beautifully presented and comfortable with everything the family needed.
The garden was beautiful and the pool a welcome retreat throughout our stay.
Louise Combarieu (from Only Provence) was very responsive to our queries prior to our stay in particular in liaising with the owners in relation to babysitting as well as organising contact with our Chef Gerald. It was a truly wonderful fortnight.

Areas for improvement:

Initially we were worried about paying such a large some of money to ‘Only Provence’ when you know their are so many scams out there.
I tried to view reviews from sites such as Trip Advisor but didn’t find any which caused me some concern.
Payment details were to bank accounts in either London or America when the site is in France so we were a little concerned right up to our stay that we might have fallen victim to a scam.

Living for a week at Mas du Rougadou exceeded all of our expectations. It was clean, homey, charming and cozy for the entire family. All of us had ample space to find solitude as well as a comfortable surrounding to gather for meals and conversation. The grounds were incredible and the pool was a perfect way to relax or exercise throughout the day. It was obvious that the owner took great pride in her home with all of the loving details displayed from the fresh fruit and vegetables available on the table to the well-stocked kitchen that reminded us of the comforts of home. The guidebook was thorough but written in French (It would be helpful to add to the book that the bedroom shutters could be closed at night to keep the early morning sunlight out of the room) and all of the sleeping accommodations were comfortable and pleasant for everyone. We will never forget the many memories that were shared in the beautiful surroundings of St. Remy, Mas du Rougadou and Provence.
Chef Yvan was fantastic. Besides being congenial, prompt, organized and clean he prepares food that is simply out of this world! It was such a remarkable evening for all of us. We will never forget it.
We highly recommend Only Provence (Mas du Rougadou) and Chefs of Tours, specifically the services of Stan and Ingrid Smith and Chef Yvan. Our experiences rate all of the above with a 5 star approval.
It is not hard for us to believe that a small slice of heaven fell from the sky and landed in a place called Provence. We greatly appreciate all of the people that helped this magical experience happen for us. We never dreamed that our stay in Provence and St. Remy could have exceeded our expectations but it absolutely did that and left our family with priceless memories that will remain with us forever.

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.
