Le Mas des Isords

Posted on Wed, 6 Apr 2011 by KiM

Gérard Faivre Paris creates entirely renovated, decorated and furnished prestigious apartments and properties for sale…”LIVE AT HOME LIKE IN A 5 STAR HOTEL” is the vision. Le Mas des Isords is one of these properties, a 7 bedroom 7 bathroom meticulously restored 18th-century mas (traditional Provençal farmhouse), complete with the latest amenities including stainless-steel gourmet kitchen with appliances by Boffi, fully equipped 12-seat movie theatre, lap pool, stables, grounds designed by landscape architect Xavier Loup…. Gérard Faivre has completely metamorphosised a beautiful but neglected mas into a residence where his modern touch refrains from being excessive and which respects the architectural tradition of this truly incredible property. It’s a slice of posh heaven I’d say.

OMG its totally gorgeous and amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deb says:

I know it's a question of taste, and I do appreciate all posts, but in my opinion the original essence of the building has been completely obliterated. There is no "respect for architectural tradition" at all.

patrice and julie, i'm with you. meh.

Bucky says:

I'm sure the old stones are taking comfort in the fact that within ten years this layer of glued on concepts will be for sale at the local recycling center.

Kate says:

oh my god- that bathtub!

kris says:

I like it .. the exterior that is … the rest … hmm, it's not my cup of tea. It says " …. refrains from being excessive and which respects the architectural tradition … ", well to my thinking, totally untrue.

Gigi says:

This is possibly the only space ever featured on DTI that I truly dislike (love the website, girls!). Having stayed in a couple of mas and seen a few more, I'm with Julie: this could be anywhere, and the decor is ghastly anyway.

Look we are very rich and have no taste, sorry can't help it

oregonbird says:

Did Donald Trump's designer wander in? Oh, dear. All the objects that said "I'm a patron of the… whatever" gathered together. At least there's no sign of being anywhere in particular.

Russell Ferrier says:

Badly conceived and poorly executed. Obviously by some team of designers / architects who (1) have no concept what a 5 star hotel is truly like and (2) have no intention of spending one night in that mishmash of a place and stumbling around it's vagrant curves bumping into oddly placed artefacts. It looks more like a tarted up bomb shelter than a Provencal Mas. (IMHO)
