Explore the “golden triangle” in the heart of Provence at Mas Canto Perdrix. Set just outside the town of Fontvieille between Arles and the stunning Alpilles mountain range, this luxury vacation rental in the south of France is surrounded by charming villages, olive groves, vineyards and ancient Roman ruins. Lovingly restored interiors and five bedrooms in a main house and two guest houses let you spend a tranquil holiday at the estate or use the villa as a base for discovering the region’s hidden gems with friends and family.
Peaceful and utterly private, Mas Canto Perdrix is in the middle of a verdant landscape, where fruit and almond trees shade the garden paths and lavender and rosemary plants scent the air. You can even watch as olives from the grounds are pressed into olive oil on-site (and buy a bottle or two as a souvenir). If you’re visiting during the summer, you’ll want to spend your stay in a lounger on the terrace by the pool, which boasts panoramic views of the countryside. An adjacent lounge area and outdoor kitchen make it easy to sip pre-dinner cocktails while preparing a meal on the barbecue, and there are three al-fresco dining areas to choose from. In cooler weather, stock the wine fridge with new finds from neighboring vineyards and cozy up to the fireplace.
