House in Saint-Andiol, Nr. St Remy de Provence, Bouches du Rhone, France
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.

A very relaxing Provencal escape
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.
We were very happy with this property, the house had everything we needed, the garden is amazing and the swimming pool area is very nice! we will be back for sure!
Emilie is a great host.
What a Beautiful Holiday Getaway
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!

From the Owner
“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).”
