The perfect Provence home

5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with your home, it was even more lovely than the photos , wonderfully furnished and equipped, it made a perfect base for our week in Provence. If we ever return to Provence we will most certainly be in contact with you, and in the meantime will recommend Mas Aurelia to any friends planning a visit to Saint Remy

Perfect hideaway in nature

5 of 5
The perfect rural retreat & absolutely perfect for couples looking for a peaceful holiday surrounded by nature. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated & cosy with a super comfortable bed. We were made very welcome by Antoine & Beatrice & our dog Rebel had a great time making friends with Pablo the dog as they played in the beautiful wooded & fully fenced garden. The breakfast each morning was delicious too! Sadly, the weather was too cold & wet to use the pool or enjoy alfresco dining but we were just unlucky with an unusually cold/wet spell. It didn't stop us enjoying our stay though, finding some lovely walks & exploring the surrounding countryside. We will return!
