Mas de L'Estragon is an exceptional stone manor house sitting on 70 acres of land located in the heart of Provence, between the villages of Gordes and Murs in Southeastern Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur – well known for its charming countryside, rolling hills and colourful market towns.

This stunning home was built on the foundations of one of the buildings that used to belong to the 12th-century Sénanque Abbey - a former Cistercian monastery that it is now a place visited by tourists for its blooming lavender gardens. The expansive property is surrounded by 70 acres of unspoiled forest, pungent fields and fruit and almond groves, ideal for those who love to unwind in picturesque settings and forget the sense of time. Luckily, the breathtaking views of uninterrupted forests and Mount Sainte-Victoire can be observed from multiple vantage points, including the main tower.

This eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom home sleeps up to 16 guests – in rooms that are modern with bleached wood and simple fabrics, while others have oak wood furniture and paintings encrusted in gold frames. The farmhouse-style kitchen offers all the equipment to make your stay feel like never leaving the comforts of your own home, designed for preparing a tasty dish from ingredients sourced at local markets and enjoying it in the dining room or on the outdoor terrace. The two living rooms are the place for the entire household to gather in the evenings with a glass of wine or hot chocolate, while the gym will keep you fit and guilt-free on your holiday.

The path to the house is truly enchanting – the main road takes you onto a private garden drive where you descend into a small valley, passing a 500-year-old oak tree standing tall and proud, before reaching the majestic home, made from honey-coloured Provençal stone. From the central round tower, two large wings open to welcome you into an atmosphere of elegant serenity. The expansive lawn is full of trees, bushes, and flower beds, offering plenty of shade as well as enough space for exploring. From the back terrace, you have a perfect view of the pool, built with natural stone around and descending steps for easy access. With such a lush backdrop, it’s almost effortless to spend an entire day lazing around the house – whether you’re dining al fresco late into the balmy evenings on the large terrace area, cooling off on hot afternoons in the enticing swimming pool or exploring every nook and cranny of the enchanting property.

Should you tire of relaxing, the nearby village of Gordes (5km) has all the local amenities you need for a comfortable stay, such as authentic cafés and restaurants, winding streets, cute little shops, and a weekday market selling everything from lavender products and artisanal cheeses to traditional souvenirs.

The other village, Murs (4km) is set among the vineyards, orchards and cherry trees of the Côtes du Ventoux, a famous wine-making area. Here you can taste the local vintages and new grapes in ambient French bistros and wine bars and admire the centuries-old architecture.

Larger cities such as Avignon and Aix-en-Provence are also a driving distance away, and each is brimming with sightseeing opportunities, an upscale dining scene and fun attractions. Notably, Avignon has numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites that will keep you occupied studying French history and culture, while Aix-en Provence is full of lush parks and museums.

The superb location on the foothills of the Vaucluse mountains near the quaint village of Gordes makes the villa simply fantastic for exploring all the gems of Luberon Valley. Full of winding streets, cafés, and patisseries, it’s an idyllic holiday destination luring travellers for its postcard-worthy views. When in Gordes, you should visit the le Château de Gordes, a castle which showcases a wonderful link between the architecture of the Middle Ages and the golden Renaissance period, while foodies will love sampling and shopping for artisanal produce and local delicacies at the local market. Every week, stallholders congregate in the shadow of the magnificent castle, allowing you to amble through the stalls and pick up everything from meat, fig jams, cheeses and fresh pastries to art showcasing local talent.

If you love shopping, you’ll feel right at home in the little winding streets lined with boutiques and artisanal stalls selling a mixture of French crafts, high-end gifts, and local souvenirs such as handmade soaps and fragrances. Aspiring chefs and cooking enthusiasts are invited to stock up on more ingredients in the local supermarket, located only a 10-minute walk away.

For some hustle and bustle, head to Avignon, located a comfortable one-hour drive away. With a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the famous Palais des Papes – a historical palace and one of the largest and most important medieval Gothic buildings in Europe that you can spend hours walking around. On warm days, have a picnic near the Pont d'Avignon running over the river Rhône or head to the city’s central square to wine and dine in one of the many restaurants and typical French bistros spilling onto the cobbled sidewalks.

The pretty town of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is also a comfortable drive away. Known for its antique stores, weekend markets and waterwheels on the Sorgue river, it’s an excellent option for a unique day trip. You can walk along the riverbanks decorated with blooming flowers or visit one of its many museums and galleries. Notably, the Campredon Art Centre displays contemporary works in an 18th-century mansion, while the Musée du Jouet et de la Poupée Ancienne showcases well-preserved vintage toys and dolls. End your sightseeing tour with a visit to the Collégiale Notre Dame des Anges, a Baroque church with frescoes.

It is also worth hopping into the car and embarking on a scenic drive to France’s twinkling coastline. Marseille should be one of the main stops on your seaside itinerary, famed for its seafood as well as pleasant, pebbled beaches with crystal-clear water. Here you can stroll around the Old Port with fishermen unloading their daily catch, admire the historic centre and soak up the sunshine by the water.

There are plenty of opportunities for children to roam free in the Luberon Natural Park, well known for its array of walking and hiking trails taking you through a varied landscape ranging from farmland scattered with windmills and farmhouses to mountainous peeks and cedar forests. Take your trip up a notch by hiring mountain bikes or guided tours, many of which allow you to travel to untouched places not many tourists know about.

One of the nearby paths perfect for all levels is Les Gorges de Véroncle hiking area with walking trails snaking through unique rock formations and typical country estates. Another must-see sightseeing trip around Gordes little ones will surely love are Les Caves du Palais Saint-Firmin, a village with mills and silos carved out in caves under the ground.

Whether you’re after a change of scenery or find yourself in Provence during the rare rainy season, head to Avignon’s museums to learn something new about the country’s history and culture. These institutions will prove as a great option for getting a culture fix and are sure to entertain children of all ages. Peek inside the majestic Pope’s Palace, admire the architecture at Musée du Petit Palais or head to one of the oldest museums in the city housed in a spectacular 18th-century hotel, Musée Calvet.

Aix-en Provence is another city offering plenty of family-friendly activities. Parks such as Parc Jourdan, Parc de la Torse and Parc Rambot are simply fabulous for spreading out a picnic blanket and enjoying some uninterrupted family time in the presence of dog walkers and other tourists embracing a slower pace of life.
