Mas de la Picolette is tucked away in a silent, hidden valley, surrounded by impressive hills and a pretty shady river.

The hous
e is a beautifully-proportioned, well appointed converted mas (farmhouse) of two adjoining buildings, built in the 1920s.  The property comfortably sleeps 10 + 2 children and a baby in 6 bedrooms and has 3 bath/shower rooms, spacious living / dining areas and a huge kitchen. The house is furnished simply and comfortably, in bright Mediterranean colours and it has a spacious, airy and cool ambiance.  Even when the house is full, there is plenty of space for all.  We only rent Picolette out to single parties.

The Main House has 3 bedrooms:  on the first floor is the master double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a glorious view over the garden and surrounding hills; on the ground floor is a double bedroom with hand-basin, and twin bedroom - these share the downstairs bath/shower room. There is large living accommodation with a dining area seating 10+, a comfy sitting area around the TV and wood-burning stove, with three sofas - and a large and extremely well-appointed kitchen.  There is a terrace outside the Main House with seating and an electric canopy.

The Studio is right next door to the Main House.  There is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a small bedroom with bunk beds for children.  We also have a cot, baby bath, 2 highchairs etc.  There is a large bathroom with separate shower and loo, shared by these three bedrooms.  

For those that can't resist staying in touch with home, mobile telephone reception is usually fine despite the rural environment (often tricky in France) and we have English TV with loads of channels.  We have a DVD and video player and CD/radio in the house.  We also have a stock of our own DVDs, videos and CDs which guests are more than welcome to borrow.  The same goes for our increasingly extensive library of "holiday reads" - growing annually as guests leave books behind for us.  Arrangements can be made for internet access on request but only when we are on site.  There is a phone for incoming calls only - information about buying phone cards to make out-going calls is available.

In these days of pet passports, pets will be considered, but this is completely down to our discretion and must be discussed with us.  Broadly, this is our dog policy
