The
Experience

A faultless Provençal house for big families or groups: pale green shutters frame south-facing windows, the garden is lovely and the pool is perfect for lounging. The owners have overseen the restoration and extension of their 1850s semi-detached farmhouse; Caroline, formerly a cookery book editor, has thought of everything for the fabulous marble-topped kitchen and she’s the visionary behind the garden while Jeremy, a modern art curator, has lined the walls with carefully chosen contemporary pieces. The floodlit living room has a good mix of modern furniture and antique finds from local markets. All the bedrooms (one down, four up) are large with calming tones and splashes of colour in the headboards; old tiles and beams have been kept where possible. Bathrooms (three en-suite) are swish and luxurious. Savour long lazy convivial meals (inside or out) after stocking up at the excellent Wednesday market at St Remy de Provence, a ten-minute walk. And you’ve got Aix, Marseille and Nîmes all within striking distance.

Reviews

Absolute perfection. The garden is unbelievably beautiful; inside the house is incredibly stylish, comfortable and well kitted out; the pool is a delight; and it's a fifteen minute walk across butterfly laden fields to St Remy town. Mas Des Reves is the type of faultless place one never expects to find. Caroline and Jeremy made their home feel like our home, and we wholeheartedly intend to revisit.

Tom, London

Mas de Reves is an idyllic holiday home - peaceful and secluded, yet only a 15 minute walk to the charming and lively town of St Remy. The house is beautifully decorated and feels very luxurious, with an elegant and spacious living area downstairs, and comfortable bedrooms upstairs. We loved sitting inside or outside and looking at the pretty, flowery garden. There is a field with horses just behind the house, which was particularly exciting for our toddler. The pool was great too. The owners and housekeeper were very helpful and kind, and we hope to visit again!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Caroline Schuck & Jeremy Lewison

  • Saint Rémy de Provence is set in the heart of the Parc naturel régional des Alpilles. Beset with wildlife, it is a walker’s and a cyclist’s paradise. Real paradise is our 1.5 hectares of garden, with bird life, flowering shrubs, meadows and absolute peace.
  • There is a range of delicious local produce available, much of it organic. Cheeses, fruit and veg, wine, chocolate, pastries and other things. There are local shops and boutiques, a large Intermarche and Alpilles Bio, an extensive organic supermarket
  • You can visit Glanum just outside Saint Remy, an important Roman ruin. Next to it is the picturesque asylum where Van Gogh stayed. Arles, Avignon, Aix, Nimes and Orange are also nearby. Drive 20 minutes to the Camargue and 50 minutes to the Mediterranean.
  • People travel from far and wide to visit the Provençal market on Wednesdays. Stroll through the medieval streets of the birthplace of Nostradamus or spend your days visiting the local vineyards or olive oil producers and taste your way to heaven.
  • You can hire horses or bikes to ride. In fig season visit nearby Les Figuieres to taste the many varieties of fig and buy delicious, unique fig products. It's not far from the Abbaye de Frigolet, a 12 century abbey with a beautiful painted interior.
  • You're 15 minutes stroll from a choice of restaurants ranging from the starred Michelin to the local bistro. Take a break from the heat in one of Saint Rémy's ice cream parlours or cafés. Or sit in the shaded squares by a fountain and watch the world go by
