Services at Mas Saint Antoine
As well as standard self-catered "Gite" accommodation, we offer a range of services to make your stay memorable and enjoyable. Whether you are looking for local information, day tripping suggestions, golf, cycling or maybe a game of traditional Boules we can help. Poolside pizza evenings are a great opportunity to relax and meet the other guests.
As we live on site we are always around to answer your questions, offer you assistance and share our knowledge of the region. Every Gîte is provided with an information pack in which (as well as describing life at the Mas) we have gathered information about local attractions, markets and recommended restaurants. (We'll even help with reservations, if you need it.)

Rental cars are available at all airports, however we can arrange collection to and from any airport if required. TGV - We are 10 minutes from the Avignon TGV station and 15 minutes from the Avignon Central Train station. Rental cars are available or we can arrange collection to and from either station if required. Prices on request and bookings can be made up until the day before you arrive.
In each of the Gites we offer a variety of books mainly left behind from previous guests. You are welcome to exchange the book that you bring with you. We also have a selection of magazines at the pool which is constantly being updated as new guests arrive and add to it.
A small selection of golf clubs are available free of charge - mens left & right and woman's right. There are a few golf courses ranging from pitch n putt (10 minutes away) to country clubs from 20 minutes away.
