The twenty acre property consists of a large five-bedroom house (sleeping ten), extensive gardens, an exceptional swimming pool, a tennis court, fields of lavender, vineyard, wheat field and an ancient oak woodland.

Mas des Vendanges is less than an hour from Marseille International airport and the TVG stations of Aix-en-Provençe and Avignon.

Locale

Mas des Vendanges is close to Pertuis, a sizable little town, similar in feeling to Aix-en-Provençe, 20 km to the south. There are all the shops and services of a town, and the bustle of being at the crossroads of two busy highways. It's a traditional town however, with lots of narrow streets, vaulted arches and many fountains, some dating from the 16th to 19th centuries.

Vestiges of the medieval past include a 13th-century tower, now a bell tower, parts of the 14th century defensive wall, remains of a 16th-century château, and a clock-tower campanile built in 1605. The tourist bureau is located in a great old château.

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 Aix en Provence TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Aix TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
