At the origin of this Mas, an oil mill built-in 1738 by Pierre Chabran de la ville de Saint-Rémy on a field of more than 300 olive trees at the foot of the Massif des Alpilles, with a master building and two horse rides to operate the presses. Over the generations, this enchanting place has become a luxury residence with gardens built around large plane trees, basins and fountains, reception rooms and 8 large bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 16 people in an exceptional setting, at the foot of the Massif des Alpilles.
Just a few kilometers from Les Baux-de-Provence, in the pretty village of Maussane-les-Alpilles, you will discover the Chabran estate and its 18th century Provençal Mas set in huge French gardens. Here, far from the clichés of the Provencal villa, it is a bourgeois house of character renovated with talent by renowned architects who mix authenticity and modernity. It is the magic of light that bathes the large vaulted rooms and animates the heavy stones steeped in history. The pleasure to swim in a large pool at the foot of centenary olive trees in Provence, then come back through the vegetable garden and pick all the pleasures of the generous nature that surrounds you. An idyllic setting to rest with family or friends and recharge your batteries in the Alpilles.
Beyond the enchanting setting of a tastefully decorated villa, the sweetness of living in Provence is appreciated in respect to a certain way of life. Mas De Chabran and it’s owners love nature, they respect it, and therefore welcome guests who have an interest within the region and its history, to take the time to discover the richness of the Provencal soil and local products. At Le Mas de Chabran, particular attention is paid to all the products used and natural materials such as clay, sand, lime, or even horsehair are favoured. The organic vegetable garden allows guests to pick their vegetables at will and a henhouse to ensure the freshest eggs to start the day.
In the heart of the splendid French gardens, take the time to relax and let yourself be rocked by the sound of the fountain and the song of birds. After a few laps in the heated swimming pool, at the foot of centenary olive trees and the Massif des Alpilles, sunbathing awaits you for a moment of idleness, in the shade of the pergola. A sanctified chapel erected at the bottom of the garden will be the ideal place to meditate in all serenity, while the children have fun in their wooden cabin, at the edge of a small wood, or jump with joy in the air with the swing.
The Mas is the ideal setting for celebrating happy events, organizing seminars and business trips in Provence. The dedicated team can organize a tailor-made event with their network of local service providers. The location and the architecture of the Mas also make it an ideal setting for filming or advertising at the foot of the Alpilles. To summarise, The Mas is a Provence dream that has been realised in the most organic, precious and dream like way possible. A moment that must be experienced to be believed.
