Browsing the Sunday morning antique markets is one of the highlights of any visit to Provence. The epicentre of France's antiques trade, the markets offer an Aladdin’s cave of treasures and collectibles to traders and enthusiastic amateurs alike. Located within easy reach of the action is the Mas de la Motte, a magnificent country house set in 65 acres of grounds, with spacious and stylish interiors showcasing more than a few pieces sourced at the local markets.
With origins in the 18th century, the property has been renovated and furnished to an exceptional standard. Comfortably accommodating up to 16 guests and with a full staff including Concierge, housekeepers, wait-staff and chef, the luxurious Mas feels like an exclusive private estate, with the discrete and impeccable service of a first-class hotel.
Accommodation is divided between the main house, with seven bedrooms, and adjacent guest house with a further two bedrooms. Formal grounds surround the property, neat lawns edged with clipped box hedging, and rose-laden arches leading to dining terraces and a 16m x 6m gated pool. A flood-lit tennis court, pétanque court, and gym equipment are also provided.
