Lots of magazine coverage for our owners this month at the start of the tourist season - and in publications featured and promoted at the France Show from 23rd January at Olympia.
The January issue of Living France includes a three-page article entitled Heaven on Earth. Starting on page 28, it tells the story of Tony Spit and Bernard Balet, who bought a gorgeous but run-down 18th to 19th century Provencal Mas. The couple have lovingly restored the property to create three gites with a peaceful garden and swimming pool, where they now enjoy hosting visitors and soaking up the culture and landscape of southern France.
Mas de l’Hermitage is place of luxurious calm, surrounded by the grass fields of the Crau. It is situated in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in Provence, close to the Alpilles Hills and the sea, near to the medieval village of Les Baux and the historic and fascinating city of Arles – so an ideal location for holidays. Mas de l’Hermitage is ID 103659.
Following this story is a round-up of property for sale in Bouches-du-Rhône, which includes our owner’s spacious five bedroom farmhouse near Avignon, currently on the market for 880,000 euros. ID 159864.
