Built before the French Revolution, Mas Amoureuse is the quintessential example of the best and most beautiful of Provencal stone farmhouses. Together with its former stone sheep bergere, now part of the original house, the Mas offers over 450m² of the highest quality living space. The farmhouse is gated, entirely private, and set on its own six acres of lushly landscaped grounds. The gardens, with views of Mount Ventoux and the 11th century fortified Abbaye de Thouzon, contain more than 300 rose bushes and climbing rose vines, 2000 lavender plants, an orchard of 40-year-old producing olive trees, cypress trees. Mas Amoureuse produces its own lavender oïl.

The location of Mas Amoureuse is perfect for guests who want to explore every corner of Provence. There are endless opportunities for day trips to different medieval villages in the mornings, an outdoor lunch at a Provencal village restaurant, and perhaps a restful afternoon by the pool. For antique shopping, Isle Sur La Sorgue, the second largest center of antiques in France, is just a ten-minute drive. In less than 20 minutes, you can tour the 15th century Palace du Papes in the historic walled city of Avignon, taste the wines of the grand vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape,Gigondas, Vacqueras, and Beaume des Venise as well as visit The Most Beautiful Villages in France: Menerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Gordes, Roussillon,Venasque, St Rémy, Les Baux de Provence, Fountaine de Vaucluse, Seguret and Sablet.

The small village of Le Thor is quietly nestled in the countryside among fruit orchards, large vegetable farms, vineyards and sunflowers. The neighboring village of Velleron with a famous fruit and vegetable market open six nights a week. For other shopping, you will find plenty of local shops for fresh bread, croissants, patisseries and a large grocery store within 2-3 km.

Mas Amoureuse, renovated from 2009-2010, is equipped with the highest quality chef’s kitchen: a new La Cornue “Grandpere” gas and electric range; two sinks; two full-sized dishwashers plus a professional wine glass dishwasher and coffee machines etc. The gourmet kitchen has a large wood-burning fireplace; a 207 X 180 cm center island, copper cookware; porcelain, enamel and metal bakeware; Cuisinart food processor; a complete spice and herb inventory; and a large international and French cookbook library. A second kitchen has a new Bosch washer and dryer and additional storage space. The custom walnut kitchen table seats 12, but most meals are eaten just outside the kitchen on the charming flowered, stone terrace. The rose-covered terrace has two large fer forgé tables and 16 comfortable cushioned chairs, perfect for outdoor meals in the shade under the two 300 year-old plane trees. A portion of the owner’s wine collection is also available to guests. The entire Mas is Air-conditioned.

The spacious Grand Salon of the house has a cathedral beamed ceiling and wood-burning Provencal stone fireplace, fabulous French paintings, antique Provencal furniture pieces and chandeliers. The Grand Salon also contains a museum-quality Normandy armoire dated 1784, 18th century Provencal pannetaire, Arlesianne commode, and parquetry tables. The ceiling-high iron and glass doors in this room open to the stone terrace. Just outside the doors of the Grand Salon, this end of the spacious terrace has two antique iron beds, covered with comfortable blue and white toile pillows.

On the opposite side of the Mas is a comfortable family lounge with high, beamed ceilings and its own wood-burning fireplace, cozy designer sofa and chairs, desk and bookcases. Full library of books covering history, fiction, gardening, interior design and children’s books in French. This room is fully equipped with a widescreen Sony LCD TV, satellite reception that includes all available English-speaking news and movie channels as well as German, Russian, Asian and Middle East channels.

Mas Amoureuse has six sunny cheerful bedrooms all freshly decorated with some of the most beautiful French designer fabrics (Manuel Canovas, Pierre Frey, Braquenie, etc.) The beds are made with the highest quality French and Italian 1,000 + count linens and duvets. Five of the six bedrooms have kings and the sixth has twins. One of the bedrooms has its own separate entrance with access from the garden. There are five luxurious bathroom/shower rooms. All bathrooms are equipped with French soaps, shampoos, robes and hair dryers. All the bedrooms have comfortable chairs, end tables with lamps and antique armoires for clothing storage. All the bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom, are air-conditioned.

The 12-meter x 6-meter (20 ft. X 40 ft.) swimming pool is surrounded by rose bushes and stone surrounds with plenty of space for the comfortable, modern sun loungers and parasols.

Mas Amoureuse is an authentic Provençal farmhouse that has been renovated with taste and style. The ideal home from home for a large family or group looking for a haven of tranquility in this delightful part of France knowing at the same time guests can get up and go and visit all the famous sites and exciting towns nearby.

Home of our dreams

  • Submitted: Nov 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
I am writing to thank you for helping us find the home of our dreams to spend three glorious weeks with our family in Provence. We absolutely loved the house!!! It surpassed all our expectations. Everything was done with such professionalism, from you to, Beverly to Yvonne and Sylvie. Everybody was so kind and patient. I get emotional just thinking about it. My ten year old daughter was so upset the night before our departure. She did not want to leave the house, I could understand her perfectly!

I cannot emphasize how happy we were during our time spent in Provence in such a fabulous home! THANK YOU!

Best regards,

Heidi

Wonderful home perfect for exploring the Provence

  • Submitted: Jul 23, 2012

Hi Beverly,


Thanks for all your assistance with our booking of this magnificent home, and your wonderful instructions on how to get there – we managed not to get lost at all!


What can I say about this beautiful property? Nothing but positive comments! Everything surpassed expectations – the grounds on arrival were beautiful, the trees, roses, vines and lawns idyllic, and a stocked fridge and dinner prepared by Sylvie on our first night - blissful!


The property is well placed for exploration of Provence, from the hilltop villages, markets, food and wine areas. As we came home daily from our excursions, the poplar and lavender drive was a ‘welcome home’ signal to get the cheese, bread and ham out, the champagne and wine, and have a lazy summer evening by the pool or watching the more energetic compete at volleyball on the lawn. The home is warm and welcoming, equipped with everything one could possibly think of ,and much we hadn’t thought of as well!, and the lovely extra touches made all the difference: the beautiful flowers Yvonne put out in every room, the comfort of air conditioning if needed, the luxury of super comfortable beds and pillows, the eclectic and interesting art work, the magnificent furniture pieces!



Thanks to the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us – it is clearly a special place for them. Thanks also for the opportunity to purchase from their lovely wine selections! Thanks to Sylvie for the delicious meals, and thanks to Yvonne for being there to welcome, assist, clarify, share a drink with, or have a chat, without being in any way obtrusive. We had a wonderful two weeks with family and friends, including five 17 – 19 year olds. We celebrated a 58th birthday, swam, ate and drank and relaxed together sharing a wonderful holiday!



Cheers

Robyn

I hope to come back soon

I was a guest in your house with a group of twelve friends the first week of October. The house is beautiful, comfortable, with a fantastic and well-appointed kitchen, that we all enjoyed using! The whole house was inviting, but our relaxing time at the end of each day on the patio was a real highlight. Yvonne was very personable, and helpful, and we enjoyed her. We hope we made a good impression on her, too!! My only regret is that the sunflowers and lavender were not in bloom, so I guess we'll have to plan another trip to Provence. I'm encouraging my children to come with friends, and to include me!

Wonderful holiday

  • Submitted: Nov 28, 2011
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
I am really at a loss for words to describe our stay at this beautiful home. I was on a trip with 11 other friends and we had the most wonderful time! Yvonne was beyond helpful and we enjoyed spending some evenings sitting out on the wonderful stone terrace talking with her about the history of the house and about the surrounding villages. Beverly was also wonderful and made sure all was well with us. We loved meeting them both. I think one thing that made this trip so successful is that we never felt crowded. All the bedrooms were so spacious and the living areas and kitchen were just magnificient. The kitchen has absolutely everything anyone would need and the large table for 12 was perfect. We had fun gathering there. We followed the markets to breathtaking villages then returned to our wonderful Mas Amoureuse to rehash our day over a glass of wine. I will never forget this trip. Thank you for allowing us to use your house for our trip to Provence. I only wish it had been longer. We have all come back with great memories and great friendships!!

Beautiful Home, beyond our expectations.

  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2011
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
Our group of ten (five couples) decided to go to France in September. We stayed in Paris for a few nights, than off to Southern France near Avignon. We searched for a house via VRBO that would accommodate our needs. We decided on a house about 20 minutes out of Avignon, and the property manager was Beverly. I communicated with Beverly via e-mail on availability, rates, location etc. Beverly was terrific because she always responded on a timely basis.

Than we arrived at the house!! Wow! The house was beyond our expectations. A large home with six bedrooms, five baths, a marvelous kitchen, and two private living areas for TV, privacy etc. The house was located on a large acreage with a wonderful swimming pool and bath house.

However it included things you really don’t plan on. Each bedroom had an AC unit, showers included wonderful European showers, linens were high count cotton and luxurious. Additionally there were excellent laundry facilities, a fabulous kitchen well stocked, and wonderful wine that we consumed, and paid for from our deposit. Each evening when we ate in, we dined on a large patio overlooking the grounds…simply great.

Most important was the service. An on-premise manager, Yvonne (wonderful) was always available, and Beverly frequented us during the visit to confirm we were pleased with the house and service. Additionally she arranged for a chef to come in and prepare a traditional French meal for the group.

I can’t say enough about the facilities and Beverly’s attention to detail and service. Our group has taken many trips together, however this was the best. I’d highly recommend the house, and working with Beverly was a wonderful experience.
