You will stay in Mas de la Source or ‘House of the Spring' a beautifully restored 18th century villa within its own ten acres of grounds and olive groves, surrounded by vines and fruit fields. It is situated between the two characterful traditional french villages of Cucuron and Ansouis, with Aix-en-Provence a 20 minute drive away. The spacious, flexible accommodation includes 6 bedrooms. All rooms are single occupancy with most having newly installed ensuite bathrooms however they vary in size and so could appeal to different budgets within the group. The Mas has separate sitting, dining and TV rooms with satellite TV and fast broadband.
We would be happy to talk through the prices and options to help you work out the best arrangement for your party. Your host team at Peloton Provence will be living on site although in separate accommodation throughout your stay to ensure that your trip runs smoothly.
Whilst staying at Mas de la Source you will enjoy the services of a dedicated and experienced cook, Sara Danesin Medio a former Masterchef finalist who will provide high quality meals which can be adapted to meet any special dietary requirements. Pre ride breakfasts will consist of cereals, cold ham and cheese, yoghurts, fruit, a range of fresh pastries from the local bakery, juices, coffee and teas. You will be able to pre-order a baguette filling of your choice each day supplemented by fruit. Dinner will be three courses including wine and/or beer and will feature Sara's contemporary Italian cuisine using the freshest seasonal ingredients. There are a range of excellent restaurants in the village and surrounding area and should you wish to sample the local cuisine we will be happy to arrange this along with transportation to and from the restaurant. During rides there will of course be opportunities to stop off at some of the typical French cafes in the pretty Provençal villages along our route.
