The mas is ideally set right in the heart of Vincent van Gogh's Provence, between St-Remy-de-Provence and Avignon, the walled city of the Popes.
Mas Des Noves is situated in a fortified domain measuring 6.000m², in the midst of a park-like garden with palm trees, century-old olive and siccamore trees, and oleander and lavender lined walkways. The domain itself is surrounded by orchards.

In the garden you will find a pool area with a large heated pool and summer kitchen.
The house comprises a fully equipped open plan kitchen, a dining room and 2 living areas. The living areas, the dining room and the kitchen are all decorated in sumptuous Provencal fashion, and all have traditional Provencal fireplaces. The family suite and mezzanine can be closed off together with one of the living areas for extra privacy.
The four bedrooms Bleu de Nîmes, Ocre Rouge, Blanc de Sable and Vert de Chine are each decorated in harmony with one of the colors that define this region. All four have private bathrooms and are equipped with superior class double beds. Three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, one bathroom is located in the hallway. All bedrooms have air conditioning and share magnificent views of the garden.
The house is situated in the midst of a park-like garden. A wide variety of Mediterranean plants and trees provides informal areas to relax and enjoy the scenery, surrounded by the fragrances of oleanders and lavender.
All downstairs areas have direct access to the large outside terrace, with beautiful views of the garden. The terrace has a comfortable seating area and a large dining table.
In the garden you will find a jeux-de-boules court and there is ample parking space available.
There is a large heated swimming pool (6 by 12 meters) and the pool area has a fully equipped summer kitchen. The pool terrace faces south and is partially roofed to provide some welcome shade. During spring and autumn the terrace can be heated with infra-red heaters. The pool has an automatic cover which can be used as a safety device.

Our group of four couples had a wonderful week here. Bedrooms are luxurious, bathrooms have beautiful finishes, kitchen is big and stocked with everything you need, and wonderful outdoor kitchen and dining table by pool. The landscaped backyard reminded us of a Monet painting. Fabulous location to all the hill towns and cities in Provence. Christine and Ruud have thought of everything. We can’t wait to come back.
My family and I had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful house. The house was a traditional provence house which was very nicely decorated throughout and even though the weather was particularly warm during the time we spent there the house remain nice and cool during the day. The garden is absolutely magnificent and with such great weather, we spent a lot of time having barbecues, swimming and playing petanque. It is conveniently located to local villages Cabannes and Noves which have shops and super markets for your daily needs. It is also close to the scenic town of San Remy de Provence which has very nice restaurants and shops and a very nice market.
Wonderful place! This is a great find! Usually pictures on the internet look better than when you are actually there, but at the Mas, it is actually better being there! I researched a lot of houses in this area, and chose this one, and it truly lived up to its expectations.

We spent a beautiful week in the Mas. Beds are excellent. There is a big beautiful garden, swimming pool and playground for petanque. The Mas is located 10 mins from Avignon and very close to main attractions and lovely Luberon villages. I highly recommend this place. We come back absolutely every year.
