A countryside “ Mas” situated only a few kilometres away from the ancient “Cité des Papes” of Avignon and of the country of Tartarin de Tarascon, one of the legendary characters of the Provençal writer Daudet. The various layers of renovation that had taken place over the years have been removed from the walls. This gives simple authenticity to this Mas and baring these walls dating back to the 18th century brings back the character and charm of the country houses of the fields of the Rhone's low lands. There is a very special harmony in the uneven floors, the slightly tilting rough walls that have been tinted in pastel colours, the stairs with its steps worn by the passage of time and the bare plaster. The current owner has introduced his personal touch by using all these cleverly balanced elements to their best...
The house is long and slightly curving as if to catch the light better and create shaded effects. Its pale yellow stone façade with its numerous shutters is generously covered by flowering and leafy creepers. Trees seem to watchfully stand by. The front door opens onto an area from which a stone staircase leads to the first floor.
In the garden (4 acres) the cypress trees are nice and straight, irises in spring, lavenders and oleanders in summer all try and steal the show. In a corner at the end of the façade a Yucca tree is almost hanging off a dry stone wall and is looking good on it! Covered terrace.
The swimming pool is unobtrusive and accessible via steps. The water has a green colour effect and the surround is shaped flagstones with close by a covered terrace with wooden flooring. The swings show how much children are welcome here; in fact, all here reminds us that it is a happy house where you will be Happy! Alarm protection.
