This charming, sun-filled house, surrounded by vineyards, is completely secluded at the end of a beautiful country road, yet only a few minutes drive to Menerbes, rightfully considered one of the most beautiful villages in France. The interior is a combination of contemporary and traditional Provencal. The floors and walls throughout are made from the exquisite stone of the region. There is a fireplace, a complete kitchen, 2 gorgeous, large, stone bathrooms, a wonderful dining room (pictured), a large swimming pool and all possible amenities. Even a flat-screen t.v. & wifi. All the rooms look out on the vineyard. It is a beautiful, peaceful, charming & romantic place! Evelyne, the owner, could not have been more helpful, sweet, & kind. We travel everywhere for most of the year but this property was exceptional & proved to be one of the best experiences of our lives!! Loved every minute & will return again.
The Mas du Grand Bausset is truly a little slice of paradise!!!
The house is simply stunning: completely renovated with exquisite taste (so many small, stylish and unique touches!), it incorporates all modern amenities while respecting the wonderful historic character of the place. It is also very well appointed: top-quality towels and bed-linen, beautiful and plentiful tableware, fully-equipped kitchen, etc. It was such a pleasure setting up picture-perfect dinner tables inside or out in the courtyard!
The Mas is set in a beautiful spot: isolated for peace and quiet, but within walking distance of Ménerbes village (a 2.5km walk on a very small (and lovely) country road) - a very pleasant walk early in the morning to pick fresh croissants. We were also able to pick up the marked hiking trails of the Parc régional naturel du Luberon from the link provided by Filip on the Mas' website - from right outside the house - no need to drive to a trailhead parking!
We really appreciated the many small touches intended to facilitate our stay (stocking of basic spices, coffee, sugar, cleaning products, etc. and a welcome gift-basket from Filip).
Silvia (property manager) who met us on arrival was charming and very helpful. She took the time to tour the house with us to ensure that we had all the information needed and encouraged us to call her if we had any queries.
The Mas du Grand Bausset clearly stands out from other properties that we have rented in the past. It is exceptional - we loved it and hope to be back soon!
One thing that should be noted: except for two of the bedrooms, the house is not air conditioned (it is stated on the detailed description but had somehow escaped me). Given the thickness of the walls, the house does remain fairly cool. The non-air conditioned bedrooms and the kitchen can get a bit warm at times. Screens in the windows - at least in these rooms - would be an appreciated "plus" to take advantage of the end-of-day breeze without worrying about uninvited guests...
