What we love

  • Fabulous mountain views
  • Outstanding outdoor spaces and private swimming pool
  • 2-minute walk from Maussane-les-Alpilles

Mas des Cistes is a 450-square metre traditional stone farmhouse full of Provençal charm and located two minutes on foot from Maussane-Les-Alpilles, a truly beautiful village situated at the foot of the hills in the Alpilles National Park. While pine trees envelope and camouflage the villa, you will still enjoy enviable 180-degree views of the area. A small stream trickles peacefully through the grounds, creating the perfect outdoor ambience. Divine rural routes in the 'garrigue' countryside make Mas des Cistes ideally located for walkers and cyclists. A brisk ten-minute stroll from the property brings you to an outstanding wild lake.

Mas des Cistes is centred around the extraordinary gardens and stunning swimming pool which stretches along the front of the property. Your villa boasts an exceptional shaded outdoor dining and lounging area overlooking the pool with views of the Alpilles beyond. Five spacious bedrooms sleep up to ten people and the master suite is especially beautiful, with a high ceiling and a scenic outlook. The interior of the property retains the original farmhouse features, such as traditional beams and stone walls, but is decorated elegantly and in a modern style, creating a sense of space and brightness.

While away your days at this luxurious villa where sublime outdoor areas offer a peaceful retreat from the fast pace of normal life. Lounge by the pool with a cocktail in hand, taking in views of the surrounding landscape or retire to the shade with a good book or newspaper for entertainment. For sporting enthusiasts, a small gym is housed in an adjacent cottage at the villa. If exploring is more to your liking, head out into the Alpilles countryside through olive groves and farmland to the quaint village of Maussane-les-Alpilles to sample their famous olive oil, tapenade, goat cheese and wine.
