About the property

Mas de Bazarde

Mas de Bazarde is a farmhouse built at the end of the 18 Century. Originally set in open countryside, the house is now part of the village of Orgon, which, with its walled fortification and its church sanctuary retains a unique rural atmosphere. The Mas has been refurbished to the highest standards and offers 4, superb self-catering apartments with a choice of one, two or three bedrooms. Local craftsmen and materials have been used in refurbishing the apartments which has ensured that the Provencal style has been retained whilst providing modern facilities.

Rock Climbing: ORGON is the ideal location for the rock climber who wants to climb all year round. A short walk through the village opens up to a large valley with somewhere in the region of 300 graded climbs, from 3 to 8C plus. The atmosphere is idyllic as the valley runs East-West and allows the climber the option during winter or summer to be in the sun or the shade.

Within 15/45 minutes drive are other excellent climbing areas such as Les Baux, St Remy-de-Provence, Mouries, Mausane, Fontvielles, Auraille and Buoux.

Cycling: Just a quick look through the Visitors Book at Mas de Bazarde will reveal the names of many British cyclists who have come here over the last 10 years to enjoy the riding, whether training, touring or just simply pottering around the quiet leafy lanes. And they keep coming back because this is a cycling paradise.

Whatever your expectations of a cycling holiday, Provence can be guaranteed to provide just what you are looking for, be it the rolling countryside, challenging hills, sleepy villages, flat plains or car-free country lanes and you don`t have to stray far from Orgon to enjoy it.

Walking : Spring and Autumn are delightful times to walk in most Countries, however, the clarity of light and the gentle warmth of the sun makes Provence and ideal location for a walking holiday.

We enjoy walking ourselves, and over the years we have collected many routes in the surrounding countryside, which we will be happy to share with our visitors if they so wish. We can offer advice and help where necessary and offer local maps.

Golf: GOLF - Provence not only offers an ideal climate but also the opportunity to play championship golf courses without the crowds and queueing associated with many European locations.

Pont Royal Golf Course. 6307 mtrs par 72 Championship course, designed by Severiano Ballesteros and opened by him in September 1992. The course is set amongst the valleys and pine forests typical of Provence, and is host to international tournaments but also enables amateur golfers to play on an exciting and varied course. (15 minutes drive). Golf Club de Servanes is located in an unforgettable setting at the foot of the Alpilles next to Les Baux de Provence. The course of 6100 mtrs par 72 is sheltered from The Mistral, edged with olive groves, cypress and cascading lakes, and must be one of France`s finest 18 hole courses. (25 minutes drive) Provence Golf Club is located at the foot of The Luberon and close to the beautiful town of L`Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, has an 18 hole, 6610 mtrs par 72 course. The perfectly maintained greens and fairways, heavy with the spicy perfumes of thyme and lavender, provide the ideal setting for the golfer who appreciates idyllic surroundings.(20 minutes drive)

Other Golf clubs are Avignon Chateaublanc (18 holes/15 minutes drive), Grand Avignon (18 holes/20 minutes drive), Miramas (18 holes/15 minutes drive), Les Baux (9 holes/30minutes drive)
