In case you missed it, Le Mas des Poiriers, an exquisite 18th century farmhouse, was featured in the March/April 2019 issue of Veranda (which was a wonderful issue BTW!) You may recall I interviewed the owner, American expatriate Shauna Varvel, in 2017, and so I was delighted to see Veranda’s beautiful feature. In addition, Le Mas des Poiriers was featured in the April/May 2019 issue of Bride magazine, documenting the magical and romantic destination wedding of an American couple… The estate is available for private rental, weddings, and events.
For years, Varvel and her husband enjoyed spending summers with their five children in Provence. And in 2015, fate led them to purchase the 13,000-square-foot mas (farmhouse) which borders a pear orchard on an island in the Rhône River. Le Mas des Poiriers underwent extensive renovation by the esteemed Alexandre Lafourcade. Landscape architect Dominique Lafourcade transformed the gardens, and Susan Bednar Long redesigned the interiors using Pierre Frey fabrics exclusively. Every inch is perfection and true to the spirit of Provence… Images below are from Veranda and Bride (as noted), my 2017 interview, and from @provencepoiriers on Instagram.
Positively breathtaking! Le Mas des Poiriers has become even more beautiful over the years. Who wants to plan a vacation?! For additional information, please visit Veranda and Bride. An incredible video interview with Shauna along with a virtual tour can be found here, and you can follow @provencepoiriers on Instagram for ongoing updates.
