Mas des Platanes
Approaching this French villa and driving up its majestic avenue of 100-year old plane trees sets the tone for a memorable, truly Provence vacation. This amazing home welcomes you with delightful gardens, a choice of terraces for soaking up the sun, and wonderfully light, high-ceilinged rooms. On the main level, the kitchen, dining and living spaces are large and well equipped, making this villa ideal for large, sociable groups.
The salon and dining room lead out to the walled courtyard garden with its stone fountain centerpiece and dining terrace, but the real jewel of the property is the superb swimming pool set amidst gracious trees and gardens of Provence. Other amenities include a superb central music system, a sauna and a gym, as well as a unique bar next to the back terrace, complete with musical instruments for the accomplished (or aspiring) musicians in your group.

About Your Hosted Villas Provence Vacation
After helping you decide which of our luxury Provence villas will fit your needs best, your Experience Manager will begin the planning process. By talking to you to get an understanding of your interests, priorities and expectations for your Provence trip, your Experience manager will craft a completely custom itinerary. Whatever you desire in your Provence villa vacation, our team will arrange it: airport and rail greeters, child care, cooking classes, language lessons, historic tours – the list goes on and on.
Once you arrive in Provence, your Local Host takes over—Hosted Villas staff members who live, work and have a wealth of insider knowledge about the region. Upon arrival at your luxurious French villa, you are greeted with a buffet of local treats and delicacies—the perfect way to relax after a long journey and kick off your vacation.
Our Local Hosts are what truly set us apart from the rest. They aren’t just the typical on-site concierges. They don’t just serve as tour guides. We think of our Local Hosts as so much more. Using the Provence vacation itineraries you created with your Experience Manager, our Local Hosts get to really know and build relationships with our guests so they can serve as more of a friend in the area. They are in essence your Provence guide, concierge, translator, trouble-shooter and guarantee that your Hosted Villas stay will be nothing short of brilliant, every time. Why just visit Provence, when you can truly experience it?
