You’ll discover peaceful Le Mas Familial at the end of a private drive, surrounded by its own lush grounds and neighbouring farmland. A wonderfully tranquil place to unwind and the ideal base for exploring Provence, this eighteenth century farmhouse has been sensitively restored, combining the charm of original Provençal features with a host of modern comforts.

Here you are in the heart of the Luberon, much loved for its exquisite hill-top villages, swathes of springtime cherry blossom, redolent lavender and expanses of vineyards, all bathed by that special Provençal light which inspired Cézanne and Van Gogh.

Wide terraces for al- fresco dining and lounging surround the farmhouse and the superb open-plan kitchen and living area opens onto two outside spaces. There is a separate cosier living room and library if you feel the need for some peace and quiet and an inside table for ten for when the sun goes down - all five comfortable bedrooms are on the first floor.

To the west of the house is the heated pool - after your swim, relax on the patio and admire the views towards the Vaucluse and Mont Ventoux. The landscaped gardens are a mixture of grassy terraces, luscious borders and shading mature trees. Look out for the secret garden and hammock tucked away at the top of all this paradise, but be sure to keep it to yourself!

Less than 2km away is the town of Apt, where you’ll find fantastic markets, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and cinema. Shopping aside, don’t forget to wander down the charming little streets which lead to the old town, passing fountains and tiny verdant squares while the ochre tinged Luberon hills shine in the distance.

Take the short drive to some of the region’s most idyllic villages like Saignon, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste and Gordes or enjoy a longer day trip to fascinating Avignon or lively Aix-en-Provence. The beauty of the Luberon National park provides the perfect backdrop for walking, horse riding, mountain biking, rock climbing or canoeing along the river Sorgue. Wherever you decide to go, your relaxing retreat is sure to welcome you back at the end of the day.

Le Mas Familial is in a rural location within the Luberon Natural Park in the Vaucluse region of Provence. You find it at the end of a private drive and surrounded by its own grounds and neighbouring farmland, an ideal base for exploring Provence.

The town of Apt is less than 2km away. It is classified as a site remarquable du gout as a result of its fine local produce sold at its two markets and here you’ll also find your local supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and even a cinema. Shopping aside, don’t forget to wander down the charming little streets which lead to the old town, passing fountains and tiny tree shaded squares.   

The Luberon offers the perfect archetypal image of Provence - perched hill-top villages, orchards of cherry blossom, fields of fragrant lavender and expanses of vineyards, all bathed in a wonderful soft light that inspired so many famous painters.

You are within easy driving distance of so many of France’s most beautiful villages, such as Roussillon (12km) where multi-coloured shades of ochre contrast with green pines and blue skies. Head to Bonnieux (14km) to admire the fine views across the Vaucluse plateau towards Lacoste. Climb up the rock at Saignon (5km) for great views over the plains and mountains - on a clear day you might see Mont Ventoux. If you enjoyed Peter Mayle’s “A Year in Provence”, take the trip to Ménerbes (22km) where it was set. The spectacular village of Gordes (22km) is also worth a visit and is sometimes described as the “Parthenon of Provence”.    

For activity lovers, the Luberon offers so many choices including hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and kayaking along the river towards L’Isle sur La Sorgue (34km), a town famous for its antiques. Rock climbers enjoy the challenge at the dramatic gorge over the river near Buoux (6km), a small historic village where less intrepid members of the group can relax with a coffee.

Mont Ventoux, about an hour away, is always a challenge for serious cyclists but there are plenty of less arduous local rides. You can hire a a bike in Apt for local tracks or pick up part of the cycle route between the town and Coustellet. The tiny mountain village of St-Martin-de-Castillon (13km) has a marked trail around the village ideal for walking, horse riding or mountain biking.

When it’s time to go further afield, Avignon (63 km), the capital of Vaucluse and the Côtes du Rhône, has a UNESCO World Heritage Site historic centre, Papal Palace and famous Benezet bridge. Aix-en-Provence (55km) is a beautiful university town, a centre for music, ballet and theatre with plenty good tea houses and restaurants.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Reviews

  • Well equipped

    on 21/09/2022

    Well equipped, in a lovely quiet location looking out across the Luberon Valley towards Apt.

  • Beautiful Provencal stay

    on 23/08/2020

    Beautiful property in a quiet area yet close enough to amenities by car.
    Very beautiful open view with splendid sunset every evening from the terrace.
    Spacious, fresh and very well equipped house with a beautiful swimming pool.
    We appreciated being able to come with our 2 dogs which was an element of choice. We will come back with pleasure.

  • A dream house for families looking for reunion

    on 17/08/2020

    The house is the result of a renovation of a long Provençal farmhouse. The location is perfect south of Apt with enough altitude to offer a magnificent view without any overlooked. The view of the Ventoux in the background is splendid. The Albi plateau just opposite. All the villages of the Luberon are a few tens of minutes away. The house is impeccably arranged to leave plenty of space for everyone. The numerous bathrooms don't spoil anything. Cooking is a pleasure with its Paul Bocuse piano. The well-secured swimming pool for children is well heated. The immense North and South terraces allow you to find the best place to settle down. Finally, the services are provided by professionals during your stay (garden, swimming pool). And the owner makes sure that everything goes well and is very responsive for arrival, departure, and to resolve any problems during your stay. In short, we can only recommend.
