Isabelle & Emmanuel Achard will be delighted to host you in Provence at Le Mas de l’Oulivié, a hotel they’ve been managing with passion for over 20 years.
Le Mas de l’Oulivié is situated in the heart of the Alpilles Regional Natural Park, 2km from the Baux de Provence, which is classified among the Most Beautiful Villages of France, in an area steeped in history.
Le Mas de l’Oulivié is perfectly integrated into its surroundings and was built with total respect for Provençal architecture: Baux stone frames, vintage-style terracotta and recycled tiles, rows of génoises and silver-grey, olivetree-coloured window shutters.
A walk along the rolled gravel path takes the visitor back in time, to the charms of yesteryear’s courtyard gardens. There are flowerbeds on either side of the path from the gate to the reception area. A small field of lavender leads to the swimming pool, which is surrounded by a rustic meadow planted with olive trees.
Our 109 beautiful olive trees, bathed in warm Mediterranean light and swayed by the Mistral, are the natural source of wealth of the Alpilles as well as of the Mas de l’Oulivié. Every autumn they produce olive oil that bears the “Huile d’olive de la Vallée des Baux de Provence” AOC label. This oil is a blend of four local varieties: salonenque, béruguette, verdale and grossane. The Mas de l’Oulivié harvest is pressed at the nearby Castelas aux Baux de Provence mill.
As an eco-responsible player in the tourism sector, we strive to make your stay as pleasant as possible while limiting our ecological footprint. So, by choosing our establishment, you are choosing both pleasure and a commitment to eco-responsibility.

With 16 communes, the Alpilles enjoys remarkable natural, cultural and historical heritage that must be preserved.
The Alpilles Natural Park received its regional natural park designation in 2007, and is situated near the Camargue and Luberon natural parks. Covering some 50,000 hectares, it is bordered by the Durance to the east, the Rhône to the west and the Crau Plain to the south. The Alpilles are a limestone range, varying in altitude from 2m to 498m, and have a wonderful diversity of landscapes.
