A large, traditional Mas house dedicated to horses in the area around Arles
between the Alpilles Mountains and the Camargue region


At the foot of the Alpilles Mountains, 7 km from the town centre of Arles; 30 km from the sea; 4 km from the motorway; 18 km from Baux-de-Provence; 30 minutes from Avignon; 40 minutes from Marseille airport and 20 minutes from that of Nîmes.


The Camargue region and the sea are on one side, the Alpilles and Lubéron Mountains on the other; Marseille and all of Provence’s towns are nearby.
History, nature and tradition form the foundations of these premises.
In the centre of 10 ha of land, all these typical Provencal-style buildings are set out around an 18th century traditional Mas house which has been extended and includes home comforts in line with current day expectations. Living, reception and work areas, stables, tack rooms, a rotunda, a riding arena, barns, a bullring, garages and dwellings are all linked to the equestrian culture and the raising of bulls.
This property is now in a tourist area, making it possible to envisage transforming the buildings and possibly changing their uses.

The traditional Mas house

The current Mas house is the result of a building, featuring classical Provencal architecture, which was extended in keeping with good architectural trade practices using traditional materials. Constructed in an L-shape, it spans a floor surface area of approx. 870 m². Its current cellar is all that remains of its old fortified tower.

Ground floor
The ground floor spans a floor surface area of approx. 360 m² with a 74 m², Italian-style vestibule featuring a U-shaped, double flight stairway and separating a vast 138 m² reception room from the oldest section which comprises a kitchen, a storeroom, a cellar, a dining room with a room for taking an afternoon nap, a corner music room and a library.
First floor
On one side of the vestibule is the master suite with a bedroom, a study, a dressing room, a bathroom, a terrace and a second bedroom; on the other side are four bedrooms, a bathroom, two shower rooms and hall areas.
Second floor
A third level with utility rooms under the rafters could partially be converted.

Our opinion

In a land where the horse reigns, in immediate proximity to the large, natural expanses comprising the Camargue region, in the shade of one hundred year old plane trees, enthusiasts of equestrian activities will be able to make use of the numerous buildings dedicated to their favourite pastime.
And, why not take advantage of the new impetus given to art and tourism in the town of Arles, the capital of photography with its new Van-Gogh Foundation, which, in addition to its traditional attractions as a classical art town, has seen the arrival of the latest Luma Foundation, a World Centre of Contemporary Art, which will make Arles the French equivalent of Bilbao, in order to direct this traditional Mas house towards hotel and catering activities.
