The beautiful Mas des Avelines is a luxury villa set in the Provencal vineyards. It is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. It is also a haven for sun lovers, stargazers, and people who are just in need of some peace and quiet.
The Mas des Avelines is a newly renovated house set in the peaceful undulating hills north of Bandol, and is just a short distance from the coast. It is set in 4 acres of private grounds littered with olive and fruit trees. Guests will definitely enjoy taking a dip in Mas des Avelines’ 14 x 5m saltwater heated swimming pool or lounging around the pool house with its comfortable sofas and outdoor fireplace. An outdoor pool kitchen and dining area with charcoal barbecue and Sonos system is also available for parties and gatherings. Guests can also enjoy a game of table tennis, badminton and volleyball in the Mas des Avelines sports areas.
The house itself is light and airy with 5 en suite double bedrooms that can comfortably fit 10 people. The beds are lined with Egyptian cotton sheets for maximum comfort and the spacious open plan living area has doors opening straight onto the terrace, which has far reaching views across the beautiful Provencal vineyards and landscape. Guests don’t need to be worried about getting too detached with technology since the Mas des Avelines has wifi, flat screen 3d surround sound TV, English Freesat plus DVD and Sonos system.
With all these things in store for you in one wonderful location, it is no wonder that Mas des Avelines was given a much coveted 5 star rating from the French Tourist Board shortly after its opening in July 2014.
THE SURROUNDING AREA
The Mas des Avelines is just a short distance from the coast, within the hills north of Bandol. On the outskirts, you have a choice of going to one of the towns, such as La Cadière d’Azur and Le Castellet, that are filled with both stylish boutiques and remains of the old ramparts.
The nearest village, Le Castellet, is extremely pretty and has wonderful views from the church square. The little winding streets of the village is great to wander through and it has plenty of stylish boutiques, cafes and restaurants just waiting to be discovered. Just 4 kilometers away is the another village, La Cadière d’Azur, which is equally lovely with its old narrow streets and the remains of the old ramparts.
The coast is a 10 minute drive away and includes the beaches at Bandol, St Cyr sur Mer and Sanary sur Mer. Bandol is a great location to visit with its busy harbour lined with acres of yachts and great cafes just waiting to be explored. Towards the west is La Ciotat, which also has beautiful beaches and one of our recommended places – the port of Cassis. Visitors may also enjoy walking trails across the Calanques, which is a national park filled with dramatic limestone sea cliffs, gorges and turquoise creeks.
Mas des Avelines is a luxury villa set in the Provencal vineyards. In July 2014 it was awarded 5 stars by the French Tourist Board. The house has five double bedrooms and sleeps ten people. Four of these bedrooms can be made up as SuperKing doubles or Twin bedrooms. The house has a 14x5m heated saltwater swimming pool, pool house, boules court, olives grove and a large lawned area.
