Domaine Villa Mas St Jean is a beautifully restored authentic 19th century Provencal Mas (Mas stands originally for farmhouse) situated just outside the historical village of Noves, famous for its 12th century Eglise St. Baudile. The Mas is ideally set right in the heart of Vincent van Gogh's Provence, between St-Remy-de-Provence and Avignon, the walled city of the Popes.
The Mas is situated in a fortified domain measuring 6.000m², in the midst of a park-like garden with palm trees, century-old olive and siccamore trees, and oleander and lavender lined walkways. The fully enclosed domain itself is surrounded by orchards (apples, pears, apricots, cherries, grapes, etc).
Villa Mas St Jean' volume is impressive, with 380m² of luxurious living space and 5 bedrooms (of which one bedroom/bathroom are our private quarters) all with private bathrooms. It will comfortably host up to 8 adults and the Grand-Suite has a private mezzanine with a sleeping couch that sleeps an additional 2 persons, usually children.
In the garden you will find detached form the Mas, a pool area with a large 8x12 meters heated pool and fully equipped summer kitchen with bbq.
The house comprises a fully equipped open plan kitchen, a dining room and 2 living areas. The living areas, the dining room and the kitchen are all decorated in sumptuous Provencal fashion, and all have traditional Provencal fireplaces. The Grand-suite and mezzanine can be closed off together with one of the living areas for extra privacy.
