About the property

FR16686

Le Mas des Peupliers is a charming typical Provence country house. It is located in the middle of the orchards that occupy the Paluds’ plain, on the northern side of the Alpilles. This plain spreads from Saint Andiol to Eygalieres and Saint Remy de Provence. Thanks to its underground water reserves this plain offers an always green landscape that contrasts with the aridity of surrounding hills. Haven of peace and coolness, le Mas des Peupliers is the ideal place to stay on the northern side of the Alpilles. From here you can visit Avignon and it's medieval cultural heritage, wonder the cobbled streets of charming St Remy de Provence, visit Aix-en Provence and even enjoy a day on the beach of Camargue in les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.

About Emilie Chekroun

We are a family of 5 who have come back to France after 16 years leaving in London, New York and Hong Kong.

We are in our late 30's, the kids are 6 and 8. Emilie is a yoga instructor and interior decorator. Ben is an entrepreneur working from home, he's half English.

Emilie Chekroun purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Emilie Chekroun chose Alpilles

Despite having strong family, business and social ties on the Cote d'Azur we decided to look for a property in the heart of Provence, where people are true and the quality of life is second to none. We love the beach and it was also a priority to find a place where we could go to the sea for a day trip.

We searched for 6 years and viewed dozens of property before buying Le Mas des Peupliers. Within minutes, we knew this was the right place for us.

A Mas is a Provence farmhouse. This one is set in the middle of a beautiful apple orchard.

At sunset there is a special light which covers nature with a touch of gold, this same light inspired famous painters such Cézanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh (who spend the last 10 years of his life in St Remy de Provence).

What makes this apartment unique

The property is calm. People who come to visit say they sleep really well here. The 2 gîtes are very well decorated and offer great comfort. St Remy de Provence with it's beautiful old town and renowned restaurants is 10 minutes away. Provence is on your doorstep.

A very relaxing Provencal escape

  • 3 of 5

We are regular visitors to Provence and found this pretty rural property comfortable, well maintained and well located, just outside the busy village of St Remy de Provence and close to other historic towns. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool after a busy day sightseeing. Our hosts were charming. Restaurants, wineries and patisseries are close by. We had a lovely relaxing stay and would go back.

What a Beautiful Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mas des Peupliers. Gorgeous location, peaceful, private and great location for seeing the various sights in the area. The villa was beautiful and having the pool was an added bonus. Emilie and her family were very warm, welcoming and helpful during our stay. There was nothing better than drinking a cup of coffee on the terrace in the morning having the gorgeous view and then at the end of the day after touring the area, we would then enjoy some wine under the stars. Absolutely lovely!
