An exquisite stately home in the heart of Les Baux-de-Provence. Standing in vast, cultivated gardens, this luxury villa has eight bedrooms, a heated swimming pool and enchanting views of the French countryside.
This idyllic property is in the pretty village of Maussane-les-Alpilles, which sits at the foot of the Massif des Alpilles mountains, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. It’s just 6km from Avignon airport, or 18km from the train station. For those wanting to arrive in style, helicopters can land in the field next to the estate. Take a short drive north to the Medieval village of Les Baux-de-Provence and admire the spectacular chateau-fortress. Or head a little further to the Alpilles Natural Regional Park, to hike, cycle or ride a horse along the marked trails. Make sure to sample the superb local produce during your stay, including the full-bodied rosé produced in the vineyards surrounding the villa, and the region’s famous olive oil.
Le Mas de Chabran is an 18th-century Provencal house that has been skilfully renovated to retain its original character while injecting modern design. This is no twee chateau; the large vaulted rooms are invigorated with bold, contemporary furnishings and artworks.
The eight, air-conditioned bedrooms all have king-sized beds, flat-screen televisions and ensuite bath/shower rooms. There are two fully equipped kitchens, a breakfast bar and a formal dining area. In the summer months, why not enjoy al fresco meals on the large terrace, relaxing to the sound of the fountain and views the rolling countryside. The extensive grounds are filled with delights: a heated swimming pool lined with sun loungers, picturesque ponds, a vegetable garden and a private chapel.
This villa rental includes continental breakfast (ingredients at cost) and daily housekeeping. It is kitted out with modern features and amenities including a lift, Wi-Fi, a security system and mountain bikes for adults and children.
For a relaxing family holiday or friends’ getaway in Les Baux-de-Provence, Le Mas de Chabran is a stylish choice. Packed with character and innovative design, up to 16 guests can enjoy absolute privacy in this beautiful gated estate.
