Overview

About the property

4-BR stone luxury villa - Enclosed private pool, eco-AC, close to town and trail

Just outside the historic village of Saint Remy de Provence, you will find our secluded gem. With four bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, and covering a roomy 210 square meters (2,260 sq. ft.), this is an authentic yet modernized Provencal villa. Central air conditioning keeps the house at an ideal temperature no matter the outside heat. Its French owners, who have lived in many countries, have applied international standards of comfort, taste, and amenities, all chosen to enhance your enjoyment of the renowned Provencal lifestyle. The house is quiet, functional, and well laid out, with living quarters on one side and bedrooms to the other. The house is cooled with an eco-friendly air-conditioning system taking full advantage of cooler nights (the house is also cooled during the day but needs all windows and doors closed).

The master bedroom features its own en-suite bath. Awaiting you outside are a child-safe, very private pool, a terrace, large (1500 sq. meter) landscaped grounds, and ample space for lounging or entertaining, all screened by hedges, pines, flowering laurels and lavender, with timeless olive groves and vineyards nearby. The location, bordering the Alpilles Parc Reserve, is ideal for exploring Provence.

Lovely Saint Remy is an easy stroll away. Hiking and biking trails originate a few hundred meters from the house. The next “street” over is an actual Roman road, the Via Domitia, which leads to the ancient site of Glanum less than three km. distant. Day trips might include many close-by beauty spots on the Mediterranean and the Rhone, and historic Provencal towns such as Arles and Avignon.

Entertaining

Every aspect of Mas Aurelia has been designed for playing host in the classic Provencal manner. The house sleeps nine people very comfortably, and can just as comfortably entertain a dozen or more during the day. Living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen are open, airy and light. A large and expandable teak table and 10 chairs can be set on the terrace under the shade of the house or under the trees in the yard. A new, large Weber barbecue awaits your grilling talents. The pool makes an especially wonderful display at night: turn on the pool lights, and just a few inside lamps, and enjoy brilliant star-lit skies framed by the surrounding pines.

The house is equipped with cable TV in English (BBC, CNN), local phone and internet (Wifi). In the Kitchen, you will find a gas stove, an oven, a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, a coffee machine, a large refrigerator and freezer with ice dispenser and a dishwasher. All the utensils and cookware needed to cook a proper French meal if you so desire.

​THE MASTER BEDROOM The large (42 sq. meter) master suite, with south and west exposures, includes a Queen bed on the main level, and a single bed on the mezzanine, along with an en-suite bath (shower, sink, toilet) and two closets. A twin bed is available on the mezzanine.

​THE OLIVE TREE BEDROOM This large (20 sq. meter) room is decorated in green and sand tones, giving it a very relaxing and comfy feeling. The room also has two closets.

THE WHITE BULL BEDROOM A large white-paper bull’s head on a deep blue wall sets this room’s theme and character. A smaller (10 sq. meter) space that holds two single beds and a single closet, the bedroom has views of the pool and backyard and is close to the Olive Tree Bedroom.

THE MAZET BEDROOM (Guest House) Set apart from the main villa, this “mazet” or guest house is ideal for those seeking a bit of independence and quiet. Close by the pool, it is a large (23 sq. meter) space with its own full bath, hot water heater, and ceiling fan, along with a Queen bed and two closets.

The Olive Tree and White Bull bedrooms share a full bathroom with a tub and coarse marble tiling throughout.

There is another independent toilet with a sink.

About Martin Guillaume

We are two executives who, in between our travelling lifestyles, come to take refuge in this haven of peace - the cradle of our family.

Why Martin Guillaume chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

Provence's endless charm, close to St Remy without the noise.

What makes this villa unique

Apart from the closeness of the village, there are the GR paths which begin just a few metres away from the house. What we like most is the tranquil, private aspect of the garden in a functional, comfortable house.

St. Rémy gem for privacy and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

The property has a great layout for enjoying with family and friends. Villa is well equipped with all you need during your stay. Location is perfect for walking to town and a short drive to explore the areas of Provence. Easy access from Marseille. The small town comes alive on Wednesday’s with an amazing farmers market. The owner was responsive to our needs.

We invited our best friends and our son to share this wonderful experience and were delighted.

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal. We could walk along paths to get to Glanum

an archeological site and the Van Gogh Hospital and the walk to town was also convenient. The pool was great and the layout suited us. Plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms.Loved the layout of the kitchen with the clothes washer right there and a great dining table.

Also well equipped which we took advantage of. Our only concern was the eco air conditioning which we resolved the European way. Keeping all the shutters closed during the day and then opening up the windows and a couple of sliding doors at night as it cooled down to 60degrees Fahrenheit even when it was 90 during the day. We would definitely rebook. So much more to see in this part of the world. We also used the gas grill and the dining area outside.Any questions we had were readily answered. We are all so grateful for this experience.

Absolutely fabulous. Provence at its best.

  • 5 of 5

Although the reviews of Mas Aurelia were so positive that I was a bit skeptical, the praise is all justified. Our expectations were very high, but the villa and grounds were even better than we thought they would be and ideal for our needs. We were three generations of family, with three couples and a two year old. We loved the well-designed layout that afforded bedroom and bathroom space and privacy for everyone as well as very spacious public areas (living room, dining room and kitchen) that allowed everyone to be together comfortably for visiting, meals, etc. There are huge supplies of dishes, glassware, cutlery, etc. for every occasion. The large kitchen work area, and full size appliances, permit easy at home meal prep. And the decoration was classic, and classy, Provençal. Simple but elegant.

The grounds much larger and more private than we had expected. In the lovely outdoor dining area or lounging around the spectacular pool, you would think you were in the middle of nowhere, yet outside the gates you are an easy walk or bike ride to delightful St. Remy and the Glanum ruins and a 30-45 minute drive to some of our favorite places in Provence. Everyone in our party wished we could have stayed longer and would love to return in the future. Thank you, Martin, for sharing this lovely piece of paradise.

Lovely and confortable home !

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this lovely home! The property is very well located on the edge of the city (You can even walk to the city center) and close to the wonderful "Alpilles Natural Regional Park". The house is large, very luminous, well equipped and maintained and furnished with a nice "Provence" taste. The garden is big and quiet. "Aperitif" around the large pull is a must!... Can't wait to go back.....

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely beautiful property. The pictures quite honestly do not do it justice. We were a group of 3 couples staying here for a week in late September. The flow of the house was great for our group, and the amenities were great. Thanks to the owner, Martin, for the nice rose wine that awaited us on arrival! We made full use of the pool and loungers every afternoon after a day of touring around. We were able to walk into the centre of St. Remy in about 20 minutes (hint: if you want to largely avoid the roads when walking to town, there is a footpath along the Canal des Alpines which you can pick up a few hundred feet down the road from the house. You should be able to see it on Google Maps). There are GR trails starting very close to the house, and a highlight was the hike up to the Rocher des Deux Trous (Rock with Two Holes) high in the Alpilles. I'd highly recommend a stay at Mas Aurelia.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Avery nice house with easy access to Saint-Remy and well positioned for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages in the region. Comfortable beds, a nice pool with chaise-longues (and a hammock!), and extra privacy for two in the pool house. Two of the rooms share a bath, but there is an extra W/C next door so it really isn't a problem even for unrelated travellers.

Our little group has rented several houses in France and Italy and this was definitely on of the best.
