Pool towels are provided for all the guests. There is also an outdoor bathroom that provides a WC and another shower. You will also find a washer dryer, iron and ironing board in this room.

The Gardens

Mas des Avelines occupies approximately four acres of terraced land overlooking the village of Le Castellet.  There are nearly eighty olive trees on the property, two of which are estimated at over 800 years old. These trees provide pressed olive oil each year which you are welcome to use during your stay plus buy some bottles to take home. Several of the olives trees around the house are lit at night time providing a lovely evening ambiance. A newly planted orchard with over twenty fruit trees provides guests with different fruits depending on the time of year. You will find cherry, nectarine, peach, apricots and nefle which you are welcome to pick.

The house has many outdoor relaxing areas.

A quiet spot can be found outside the entrance door. The sitting area is surrounded by greenery and is sheltered at different times of the day. There are two small sofas, two armchairs and a small table. This is a lovely place to have a coffee or an evening drink away from the hectic pool area.

Outside the ground floor Lavender bedroom another couple of chairs and a table can be found to relax in and enjoy a few quiet moments.

Outside the Nectarine bedroom there is a terrace with two sunbeds which gets the early morning sun. The terrace overlooks the breakfast patio and the grounds.

Finally there is the pool house with its huge rattan sofas and outdoor fireplace. This is a place to enjoy the shade and watch the others swimming or to take an early evening drink while looking over at Le Castellet. To soak up the sunshine around the pool there are six sunbeds and four armchairs with foot rests or alternatively you could choose to relax in the various Fatboys (giant beanbags) on the sun deck overlooking the pool.

Watching the sunset over the Provencal countryside is a huge pleasure. Mas des Avelines provides many ways to enjoy a relaxing evening, from swimming at dusk to a glass of wine on the pool terrace whilst watching the stunning sunsets.
