Mas de Bonnieux
"This is a wonderful 18th-century farmhouse “Mas” sitting in the middle of a wine estate - ideal for guests who would like to enjoy the amazing colours of Provence, looking out from the wisteria-shaded breakfast terrace across leafy vines and row after row of lavender. One is quickly transported to a world where life runs at a slower, more traditional pace."
As the workers nurture and cajole their crops in preparation for the harvest, guests may languish 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 rosé. The Mas accommodation has been fully modernised, is comfortable, practical and spaciously arranged, divided between the main house, with five bedrooms and a guest cottage with a further bedroom (on request).
In addition to the 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 views over the estate, a second terrace, near the pool, is well-lit for longer evening meals.The swimming pool, which is a salt water pool and can be heated, measures 12 x 6m and is fitted with a security alarm.
Nearby Bonnieux (7 km) is one of the prettiest villages in the Luberon you will find plenty of small shops, bakeries, small supermarket, pharmacy and banks, there is a local weekly markets a perfect place to stroll around and have a drink in one of the many cafes or a meal in one of a multitude of restaurants, from great value pizzas at La Flambée, to Michelin-starred gastronomy at Bastide de Capelongue. Perched on a high ridge, the village offers fine views over the plain to Mont Ventoux and the villages of Lacoste, Gordes and Roussillon where you will find some good restaurants here too. Slightly further afield but still only a relatively short drive are Avignon and Aix en Provence, both of which would make wonderful day trips.
