Meander through the streets with the late summer sun glowing over the Alpilles Mountains, and you'll often hear live music filtering through the alleyways, creating a buzz in the cafés. Nearby, this 18th century mas has been lovingly restored by the owners to preserve the traditional architecture, yet refreshed with contemporary features and modern comfort. The interiors are spacious and airy. A large living area with open fireplace, high ceilings with exposed beams and dining area open onto the kitchen. Fully equipped with large 110cm professional stove, two ovens, a grill, Nespresso maker, microwave, and wine cellar.
An 80m2 shaded al fresco dining area equipped with kitchen, shower and separate WC is located near the 17 x 8 m swimming pool. Again, high ceilings with exposed beams provide an old-world feel with numerous entertaining options.
