The Mas des Sources is a beautiful 18th century mas (French farmhouse) and is situated a short distance from the lovely old village of Mausanne in the Alpilles area of Provence. Maussanne has a choice of good restaurants, a small supermarket, boulangerie and everything you need for everyday living. The whole area is rich in history. With its wealth of historical and artistic sites, and the beautiful mountains humming to the sound of the cicadas in the summer, the Alpilles for many epitomises Provence. Pine forests, olive groves and vineyards provide the quintessential provencal landscape. Avignon, Arles, Nimes and Aix en Provence are within easy exploring distance. The UNESCO world heritage site of the Pont du Gard, the perched villages of the Parc Naturel du Luberon and the Camargue are also very close as is the Mediterranean sea - within an hours drive.
The beautifully restored Mas des Sources is a two storey stone built house located on a quiet country lane approximately 1km from the village – 3 minutes by car, around 20 minutes on foot. It is surrounded by a charming courtyard garden with an ancient fig tree, rosemary, thyme and wisteria. The house has private off street parking with gates for extra security.

There is an additional small dining corner in the living room. The house has a DVD and television (English channels only) for entertainment plus a good selection of books and games.

We ask for half the rent at the time of booking and the balance six weeks before the start of your holiday. If booking is within 6 weeks of arrival we require full payment at the time of booking. We also require a £500 deposit against damages paid at the same time as the final balance. Any breakages or damage will be made against the deposit, together with the cost of telephone calls made during your stay, and the balance returned to you. Bookings are from Saturday to Saturday. In order to clean and check the house we ask guests to arrive between after 4 p.m. and to leave before 10.00 a.m. on the day of departure.
In case of cancellation, the reservation deposit will be retained unless we can re-let or the whole payment if six weeks or less before the start of your intended stay. If we can re-let our additional expenditure, including advertising, will be deducted and the rest returned to you. We would therefore strongly advise you to take out holiday insurance which covers cancellation. This is widely available, for example from airlines, ferry companies, and the AA.
