Europe / France / Provence
This beautiful family Mas located in the heart of the village of Cabannes, a 10 minute from Saint Rémy de Provence and Avignon is a real haven of peace.
This beautiful authentic family country house was built around 1880 by the owner ancestor and is still inhabited by the descendants six generations later. It has been recently renovated with charming design, features seven bedrooms accommodating 14 guests, with the spacious rooms and living rooms and the large pool and lawns. It is a perfect place for large family reunions.
As soon as you arrive, you will pass through the imposing wrought iron gates of the Mas Verdun and find yourself in a true oasis of calm. A long shady path lined with plane trees will lead you to the Mas. This place will allow you to enjoy privileged moments with your family or friends in a simple yet refined atmosphere that all lovers of the Provencal way of life will appreciate.
A dive in the pool during the sunny summer days will be a great chance for a refreshing break – or for the sportier type, why not play a game of pétanque (boules) in the boules pitch of the Mas Verdun in the shade of the plane trees!
The large living room with a great fireplace is the heart of the Mas, with a television, DVD player, video library, and board games. It will allow you to pass the time in a relaxed atmosphere. This majestic space is decorated with delicate colors and extends into a dining room with a bar area.
