Clos Paradou 

Provence Emotional Escapes presents Clos Paradou, a beautiful and comfortable Mas for up to 12 people, enclosed in its own 2,600 sqm private grounds right in the centre of the charming village of Le Paradou - situated between the Baux-de-Provence and Maussane-les-Alpilles at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range.

This really is the perfect luxury holiday rental for a group of adults who appreciate the finer things in life. Set in beautifully manicured gardens with a 10 x4 m heated private pool, the villa is a traditional Provençal stone built mas furnished to a very high standard. The interior is both tasteful and refined, many of the rooms are decorated in period style with fine antique furniture, works of art and chandeliers.

A studio nestling in the corner of the gardens offers romantic and very private accommodation for a couple, with the remaining spacious bedrooms located in the main property. All six double bedrooms are ensuite and air-conditioned, each furnished with antiques, interesting artefacts and fine linens.

No expense has been spared to ensure that Clos Paradou is an idyllic retreat, and it is the little thoughtful touches as much as the impressive decoration that make it so special - the silver trays on bedside tables with a water glass for bedtime, the embroidered laundry bags hanging in the bathrooms, everything is designed to pamper. Ideally located in the quaint village of Le Paradou it's just a short walk to butchers, bakers, grocery stores and restaurants.

Bicycles are provided for the easy 10 minute ride to nearby Maussane-les-Alpilles with its bustling cafes and commerce.

La Belle Amélie -

Provence Emotional Escapes presents la Belle Amélie, a beautiful rental villa a short drive from St-Rémy-de-Provence, South of France. La Belle Amélie is a brand new contemporary-style home built by a talented contractor from the north of France. Created at its inception for the builder’s family, it has gorgeous touches throughout that seamlessly meld ancient and modern Provence.

The location of the property is on a very Provencal estate, surrounded by the quintessential country setting of vineyards, olive grove and lavender fields. It enjoys an unobstructed view of the Alpilles hills; from many vantage points all over the estate - from the ground floor, pool, and upper terraces, you will have dazzling views.

The villa is located just outside the much-loved town of St-Remy-de-Provence, a 5 minute drive away. Other famous towns and villages are close by, for shopping, eating, biking and touring.  Provence doesn’t get better than this.

The three bedrooms on the first floor are air-conditioned; the en-suite bedroom located on the ground level has under-floor cooling. The décor is refined, calming, and done to high standards. Ancient beams line the ceilings; on the ground floor you find limestone floors and large ground floor closets made of old oak but with modern sensibility. Sleeps 8

Villa Domino

Provence Emotional Escapes presents Villa Domino a contemporary vacation rental near Lourmarin, South of France. This exceptional contemporary air-conditioned rental villa, with its stylish architecture, is located in the pretty village of Cadenet, just five minutes away from the famous village of Lourmarin.

The location of Villa Domino is ideal: it will take you 15 minutes to get to the village of Bonnieux (which guards the southern entrance to the beautiful Luberon, with its picturesque hilltop villages), half an hour to reach Aix-en-Provence and its delightful Provençal markets, an hour to get to Avignon to the north-west or to the beach at Cassis to the south.

The house itself is quite unique in style for the area. Designed by a local architect, it was intended to be open, light and spacious, in striking contrast to the Provençal mas or villa, typically heavy-set with small windows. All four bedrooms are air-conditioned. The very spacious living room looks out south through the glass façade onto the tailored garden, the village and the nearby medieval castle.
