The mas, built in the 17th century, has an authentic, rustic feel about it. The large gravel courtyard, with mottled shade from its traditional 'platanes' (plane trees), separates the house from the pool.
The master bedroom features a 160 cm double bed, air-conditioning and direct access to a large private terrace with stunning views south over the gardens, pool and lake. It also has a large mezzanine with two 120 cm beds (that are admittedly quite old and aren't intended for sleeping in, but would be great for a siesta!) and lots of space for storing suitcases.
The second bedroom also has a 160 cm bed and air conditioning, as well as its own small private terrace that overlooks the west terrace. Extra features include a flatscreen TV with a satellite receiver and a safe for keeping your valuables.
On the other side of the house, above the kitchen and completely separate and independent from the other rooms, there are two bedrooms that share a bathroom. The first one has a 180 cm double bed and great views south over the pool and gardens. Both of these bedrooms are air-conditioned.
Back in the other side of the house, there is once again a configuration of two bedrooms that share a bathroom. This bedroom--also air-conditioned-- features a 140 cm bed, which is considered small for a double bed by American standards, but just fine by European standards.
Emotional Escapes presents Mas Saint-Sixte, a beautiful mas in Provence, Eygalières, France, for your holidays in Provence. Sleeps 10.
Mas Saint-Sixte is a magnificent and private 17th-century mas located near the renowned Saint-Sixte chapel in Eygalières, with glorious, tailored grounds, including even a small boating lake.
Located just far enough from the village to be in a quiet, secluded environment, yet still within walking distance of the village itself, this beautiful vacation rental villa is a perfect base from which to explore the dramatic countryside of the Alpilles as well as the nearby towns of Avignon, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Arles and Aix-en-Provence.
The mas has 6 double bedrooms (some with extra beds) but is only equipped for 10 people. The 5 bedrooms suitable for adults are air-conditioned; there is also a room with a bunk bed for children. The mas has a large living room that can receive all guests at once or several smaller common areas for a bit more privacy and independence.
Although some areas of Mas Saint-Sixte are not air-conditioned (e.g. the ground floor), the walls of this ancient property are made of very thick stone, allowing the interiors to remain nice and cool at all times.
Please note: Smoking is not permitted inside the villa.
