Overview

It offers complete privacy and relaxation for guests. The property has no neighbors and affords the opportunity for long walks through the vineyards and forests where the only sound is the birds, cicadas or at night the occasional wild boar. The spacious and refined villa provides the ideal setting for a large family or group of friends to gather in the heart of authentic Provence.

The Mas has local food and wine at its heart. The vineyard's chardonnay grapes produce a premium vintage that is available locally and is sometimes the bottle of wine in the welcome hamper. Guests can pick fresh herbs from the garden in season. Cherry, fig and pear trees provide for the jams sometimes made on the Mas. Truffles grow on the property and truffle hunting can be arranged with a local dog in season (Autumn/ Winter). Local markets, on every day of the week, are in easy reach for plentiful food sampling opportunities. A private chef can be organized to cook local specialties at the Mas and we can arrange bookings at the best local restaurants. With notice we can arrange provencal cooking lessons and local wine tours.

The main house includes five bedrooms (10 guests) and is split into three floors. On the first floor are three double en-suite bedrooms. On the ground floor are the main living areas including the lounge, kitchen, dining room and study. On the lower ground floor is a separate suite which includes a double bedroom and a twin room, with two separate bathrooms, plus a cozy lounge linking the rooms.

There is a self contained cottage across the courtyard from the main house which offers an additional double bedroom, plus a lounge with a small kitchenette and dining table, a bathroom with bath, and its own private terrace. The cottage is suitable for an additional two guests (additional charges apply).

Along with a formal dining area in the main house, there are several delightful outdoor terraces for dining al fresco. The main terrace is well-positioned off the kitchen, with stunning views over the estate. A second terrace near the pool is well suited to pre-dinner drinks and several others for breakfast in the sunshine.

The heated (up to 24 degrees Celsius) salt water swimming pool measures 12 x 6m. The pool which has a paddling section that young children love, is also gated and has a cover for peace of mind.

Guests can chill in the rose-scented gardens, dipping in and out of the pool, occasionally retreating to a shaded corner with a good book and maybe a glass of the estate's chardonnay. With views across the estate to the Luberon forest, one is seduced into a world where life runs at a slower pace.

Babies and children are catered for with two cot beds and two high chairs (on request). Well behaved pets are welcome with prior arrangement.
