Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Helena



Just to say many thanks for allowing us to stay the extra night, it made all the difference to my partner.



We all had such a wonderful time there and concluded the holiday with a fabulous meal made by Ronald - a great way for my mum to celebrate her 70th birthday. So many thanks for all your help and advice. If you need any recommendations for your website I would be happy to provide.



Kind regards Kirsten

WONDERFUL PROPERTY, PERFECT FAMILY HOLIDAY.

  • 5 of 5
Our Australian family of three generations enjoyed the best vacation at Mas de Palassas, a beautifully maintained and very comfortable property. The house has been equipped generously and to a very high standard – furnishings, linens and towels, beds, kitchen utensils, electrical items. It was even better than described!
The manager was extremely helpful, always available to answer any queries. The information folder has all the details for which one could wish about local sights, restaurants, activities, shopping, and amenities. The property is very safe for children: internal stairs can be gated, the grounds are secured with fencing and electric gates, and the pool is securely fenced.
Everything was perfect: for the cooks among us – the kitchen, pizza oven, barbecue; for the children – the play areas, books, games; for the active – the pool, the Petanque court, local walks; for the slothful – the gardens, nooks to hide with a book, lounges for sprawling, gazing at the view; for all of us – the chance to have a terrific time together.
The daybreak excursions to Bonnieux for baguettes, croissants; mornings to a market, a vineyard; trips to Marseilles, Orange, Aix en Provence; afternoons by the pool; evenings dining al fresco under the stars; the tranquillity and the silence. Wonderful!
We definitely recommend Mas de Palassas to friends, and look forward very much to returning, for at least two weeks, to relax at the beautiful Mas de Palassas, and enjoy again this lovely part of France.

A WONDERFUL WEEK AT MAS PALASSAS!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for a fantastic week at Mas Palassas!

The home is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. The location is perfect for touring the gorgeous provence countryside. We really enjoyed sight seeing in the mornings and coming back to Mas Palassas for a relaxing afternoon by the pool. We even had a big round robin petanque tournament which was a lot of fun for all ages.
The owners are nice and helpful and provided a lot of information about places to visit and restaurants in the area.
I would definitely recommend this gorgeous home to friends and family and I look forward to a return trip in the future....next time it will be for two weeks!
