Pin this Villa
A large familial mansion set on a historical olive and lavender mill, this renovated farmhouse exudes both historical richness and modern conveniences.

The main building has 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, and can accommodate up to 13 guests in true comfort. There is air-conditioning throughout the house, and the large traditional terrace outdoors benefits from the shade of the two large platane trees.

The swimming pool area is ideal for adults and children alike - situated in a large field, fully fenced and alarmed, with a new pool house for lounging - one can imagine spending hours in total relaxation.

With no neighbors or other noise pollution, the sounds of the summertime cicadas are all that can be heard from the property; truly a haven of rest for experiencing the joys of the Provence countryside. With 25 acres of privacy, the surrounding landscape is simply gorgeous, and many hiking trails are available from the house leading to the famous Alpilles hills. Saint Rémy village, cafés and restaurants, and Roman ruins are all a 20-minute walk from the property.

The essence of Provence and Saint Rémy is certain to be found here.

*The guardian lives in a small entirely private adjacent house.

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. It was a lovely stay. The one thing that would have been truly wonderful, and which I had imagined in advance was a sound system through which we could play/stream music in the house. A dock for the iPhone or a wireless system for playing music through speakers in the living room, kitchen and perhaps outside or by the pool would have been great!

Q. Would you consider staying here again?
R. Yes

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful. We loved cooking in the fantastic kitchen, and dining outside by candlelight. We enjoyed watching the Tour de France on the big TV together, and especially swimming in the deliciously cool salt-water pool - so refreshing with all the hot weather! We had a couple of very nice conversations with Guy, the caretaker, in which he shared a little history of the family and the house with us, and Marina was our fabulous and kind housekeeper for the M, W, F cleaning.

Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
R. I can't think of anything. Our experience with Only Provence was brilliant.

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. I will definitely use Only Provence from now on when renting in that area! Exceptional properties and amazing support so you never have to worry or wonder about anything during your stay.

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. More dish towels and dish cloths would have been helpful. There were bees building a hive under the pool deck close to the shallow end under the boards. They were sprayed.

R. Nothing!

Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
R. Yes

Q. Chef Tour Experience Details
R. Genevieve was amazing! The family is still talking about the meal! My daughter loved seeing her roll out the tart crusts with a wine bottle!

Q. Would you consider staying here again?
R. Yes

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. Location near a vibrant small town but set on acres of olive groves with a view of the Alpilles. The house was immaculate and gorgeous. There were ample spaces for family members to congregate. My husband enjoyed ping pong games with the kids while I loved morning swims. It was easy for everyone to get out and take walks through the country or town. We had three memorable meals at the house outside under the plane trees or inside at the long dining room table. The espresso machine allowed us to have morning coffees by the lavender at the low table outdoors. The bedding and beds were beautifully appointed and each bedroom had its own bathroom.

Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
R. Offer homes in other countries too! :)

We had a wonderful week at Mas de la Verdiere. We loved the house: the decoration, lay out, attention to details, the location, the setting, the facilities etc… everything was perfect. It really felt like a proper French family home right in the heart of Provence. Ideal!

The gardien was welcoming, friendly, helpful, discret. A very nice man. I was concerned to be get a feeling of being watched over but not at all. In fact it was nice and reassuring to have someone on site in case we needed help.

The only thing which was missing was a cover for the swimming pool to preserve the heat overnight. For this kind of houses at this price, it is expected. The drop in temperature during the night or a day without sun is very significant.

We would highly recommend this property (5 stars).

We had a great experience with Only Provence: straight forward, friendly, helpful, efficient, perfect service overall. (5 stars).

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.
