Magnificent 1700’s Mas Provençal situated under the shade of 300 year-old plane trees; swimming pool; extensive landscaped grounds.

Sleeps 12 - 16 Cottage rates 1000 euros per week all season.

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 pretty bedrooms in the main house, 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 recently renovated cottage sleeps 4 people, 2 bedrooms and big shower room ensuite.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beverly,



We meant to write in the guest book at the beautiful Farm House, but as you know packing was challenging for us and that was not done.



Before time got away I wanted to write and thank you for everything you did for us. Stocking the house with our food list, beautiful flowers and most of all staying in immediate contact when any problem would come up. We can't control Mother Nature and she was not kind with rains and flooding storms resulting in internet problems and outage of utilities and one huge tree blown down. But that was all made better with your continued visits and diligent communications as everything did all work out. We feel we made a new friend and we adored your hard working son in law., Julien who may be one of the best in technology and extremely helpful to us.



Everything about the magnificent Farm House was simply perfect. Our family gathering in such a special environment will be memories we treasure. And we certainly plan on making more memories in that very lovely home. There is much to see and visit 30 to 45 minutes from the home. And it is a perfect base to leave and travel off for 2 or 3 days and then come back home to Mas Amoureuse!



This list is too long for all you did. Housekeepers, groundskeepers, emergency handy man fixing things and yard people, all kind and caring under your devoted attention. Thank you, thank you.

Lovely provincial french countryside home

  • 5 of 5
My only regret with staying at this house was that is was only for 1 week. It is a beautiful home fully equipped with everything you will need. It is in a quiet private setting. You should know it is not walking distance to restaurants and grocery shops but they are very close by driving. We had a great week in this truly gorgeous home and I would stay again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 weeks to enjoy this amazing ,well-modernised and located farmhouse, easily accommodating up to 12 of us in some weeks. Is the property as good as the website shows? Answer , yes , in every respect, though the gardens and lavender/sunflower fringed driveway proved even more spectacular than the photos ! The house was immaculate with nice touches such as fresh-cut flowers , very well equipped with high quality furnishing and inclusions.and our housekeepers Sylvie and Catherine were efficient and delightful.Beverly could not have been more helpful in settling us in, answering questions during our vacation and making sure we were problem-free. Plenty of good restaurants in easy driving distance ,several convenient supermarkets , even a gym in the local village to offset the food and wine intake !! Mas Amoureuse is highly recommended for family or friends to enjoy the best of Provence.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for a large group, lots of personal space, huge kitchen, large pool, lots of parking. The setting is breathtaking. Everything you could need is available. The pictures are spot on as are all other reviews. Spotlessly clean. Convenient to all Provence has to offer: Avignon, Gordes, Rouission, Carpentras, wine tasting, markets. The blue room and the twin room share a bath but it is very large, as are all the bathrooms. Wine available for 10 euros a bottle but the store in Le Thor is very close and has an excellent selection; drink the rose while in Provence, it is excellent. Housekeeping is once a week, not daily. Internet is hit or miss, better if you sit in the family room and adequate enough if you're patient. Beverly, the property manager is attentive to anything you may need. I would go back in a heartbeat, just perfect!

Amazing Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5
A large group of friends/family stayed here together early in May. Absolutely fabulous---we are all "foodies" and anything we needed was in the kitchen. We took day trips to museums, etc. and regrouped at the house in the evening---what an absolutely PERFECT vacation place!!

Vacation of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 2 weeks with our children and granddaughters at Mas Amoureuse and had the best vacation ever. Yvonne, the house manager, was invaluable. She was always there when we needed guidance or suggestions-always with a smile. She had a super, delicious, dinner ready for us upon our arrival, large bowl of fruit on counter and beautiful flowers on tables throughout. The house is more beautiful than the photos and every detail thought through for guests comfort. Bathrooms, showers, linens of highest quality with French soaps, lotions, cozy robes and all amenities. The kitchen is fully equipped with every necessity, oils, spices, vinegars, dishes, just some of the things.
The terrace with comfy daybeds, table and chairs, very relaxing. We enjoyed most meals out there with lovely roses and flowers, and view of a hilltop abbey, which, we did make the walk up to see it and there were magnificant views from the top. Everyone enjoyed the pool but the girls loved it every afternoon on return from many wonderful sightseeing adventures so convenient to the house. This is convenient to Avignon, Arles, Gordes, St. Remy, Pont du Gard, and many more sites. We would recommend Mas Amoureuse to anyone wanting a relaxing, comfortable, well equipped, centrally located home. Great for several couples or family time. We thank Beverly for her help directing us to this beautiful house to celebrate our 50th anniversary. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Gorgeous home and amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation to Provence was made perfect because of our choice to stay here. I cannot say enough about his house. The description and the photos do not do this property justice! Yvonne, the house attendant, was the perfect hostess: she provided translation for us, directions, recommendations and freshly baked breakfast goods every day. She is also a gourmet cook and she prepared one of the best meals of our entire trip ... and we went to some astounding restaurants! This is a very large and gated piece of property that provides excellent privacy but is perfectly situated within 5-20 minutes from many of the regions most picturesque towns: Gordes, Fountaine de Vaucluse, Roussillon, Avignon and, of course, Isle Sur la Sorgue. The best part is that the house itself is breathtaking. The owners live here half the year and it shows. The attention to detail is remarkable. There are two bedrooms that share a spacious bath but every other bedroom enjoys its own beautifully appointed bath. The rooms are all large with plenty of storage and stocked with more amenities than you would find in any 5-star hotel room. The kitchen has been recently remodeled to perfection and the living areas showcase some of the finest French antiques from the region (I know because we were antique-hunting ourselves). The kids spent all of their time at the pool which is large, clean and has an adjacent pool house with pool toys, a bathroom and refrigerator. The house has a view of an ancient hilltop abbey which we walked to and enjoyed the views. With 6 amazing bedrooms (every one of them ... seriously), this is a wonderful choice for large families or small groups. We looked at many homes before deciding on this one and we feel we got a fantastic value. I would highly recommend this house to anyone traveling to Provence!
