Luberon Mas Rental Photos and Description

Ideally located between Bonnieux and Lacoste, this mansion of the 16th century, is located on a private estate of 30 hectares which offers absolute calm. The recently renovated property offers the charm of the old with modern comfort. Quality equipment (high-end bedding, WIFI internet access ...).

The house is arranged in the following ways:

the ground floor kitchen of 45 m2 all equipped followed by a lounge of 35 m2 and a room of 10 m2 (single bed 90 cm) wardrobe with mirror, bathroom with walk-in shower, WC.

1st floor: Bedroom 1 of 40 m² with 160 bed, 100 cm TV, dressing room and a bathroom with Italian shower, basin and wc. Bedroom 2 of 30 m² with 160 bed, TV 100 cm, wardrobe with large mirror.

The 14x7m pool is equipped with an approved safety device.

The 2500m² garden is completely fenced, shaded terrace with garden furniture, barbecue charcoal, private parking.

The property is close to all amenities (restaurants, bank, pharmacy, supermarket, post office, bakeries and butcher) 3km from Bonnieux and Lacoste 2km, quiet, surrounded by oak, vine, with a view of Mont Ventoux, Luberon, castle of Lacoste.

An ideal place to get together with family or friends, to have large common areas, and preserve privacy.

For information home has two living faces, the south of the announcement and another to the north. My mother lives alone the north side of the house. There is no overlooked between the two sides, each has private parking, and your freedom of life is total (music, television, children's games, etc.).

Amazing Trip to 16th Century Mansion

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six from the United States. Our children range from 10 - 18, and we travel frequently. Words cannot adequately express the vacation we experienced at "Mansion of the 16th Century"! From the moment we arrived, greeted by the lovely owners, all of our needs and desires were well taken care of us. Jean and his wife gave us a tour of the home, inside and out, and told us to contact them if we needed anything! They even took our Christmas card picture for us later in the week. Prior to our arrival, Jean answered every question I had, and trust me, I had lots since we rent often from VRBO. He speaks very good English though he is modest about his abilities, and was so easy to work with concerning payment and deposits. As for the accommodation, the house is extraordinary! It is everything as described above, plus so much more. The house is very large, and all of my children had their own bedroom for once. The views from every room are spectacular. The house is very well maintained, and seems brand new if that is possible in a chalet built hundreds of years ago! There is a washing machine and large wash room which was handy. Also, all of the bathrooms had great water pressure and endless hot water! The grounds of the house are magical. Cherries were literally dropping from trees on the grounds, and my children loved hand-picking their own cherries every day! The yard is immense - we played kickball and soccer most very day. The pool is lovely - very large, with incredible views across to the mountains. It truly feels like something from a fairy tale. My husband and I are avid runners and bikes, and we found endless routes consisting of tiny roads winding in and around vineyards and up and down small hills overlooking lavender fields which were in bloom during our stay. Lacoste is a mile away, and we enjoyed running to the top to experience the expansive view! We also loved eating dinner out in Bonnioux which was a few miles away. This town truly felt like it was perched on the side of a cliff, and the waiters at the two restaurants we frequented became our friends by the end of our stay they were so nice and interesting to talk to. We made a day trip to Cassis, a lovely town on the coast, and also found several good hikes in the area. The days we didn't explore the area, we felt very at home in this gorgeous setting. In fact, I've decided I want to retire to Provence, this area in particular! I highly recommend "Mansion of the 16th Century".

The reality of the house is even better than the description on the Homeaway website.

The house was clean and bedrooms were ready to sleep directly after arrival.

The owner is very flexible and customer oriented.

We realy recommend this house to friends and family.

The house is really BIG. Kitchen is good equiped. Bedrooms are big. Soundisolation in bedrooms not the best (0ld doors)

Garden and Swimmingpool are amazing.

Very nice Village Bonnieux. Good bakeries and restaurants.

Nice to visit: Bonnieux, Lourmarin, Gordes, Rousillon, Aix en Provence, Avignon.

  • 5 of 5

With our entire family (10 people) we really enjoyed a full week in this amazing house. Fantastic garden, big bedrooms with good bed, good kitchen + complete outfit. Very big Swimming pool and enough room for the complete family everywhere. It was even more impressive than the description on the Homeaway website. We had a very good contact with the owner, who was flexible and very customeroriented. We really recommend this house for big families. Realize that the house is old, this means that the sound in the house comes via the bedroomdoors easily through. The village Bonnieux is a nice village, good restaurants and 2 good bakeries. Every morning we went to the village for the good french croissants and bagettes. And nice villages to visit in the neighbourhooed. (Gordes, Roussilon, Lourmarin)

Maison idéale au milieu de la nature

  • 5 of 5

Superbe maison entièrement rénovée et très soignée avec un grand jardin arboré et clôturé . La maison est très bien située et très calme. La cuisine est très bien équipée avec tout ce dont on a besoin. Nous avons apprécié la gentillesse, la discrétion et la disponibilité du propriétaire et de sa compagne.

Nous allons sûrement y retourner!

Superbe maison ancienne, superbe jardin magnifiquement entretenu, avec de grands arbres pour les jours de grosse chaleur, belle piscine et un propriétaire aux petits soins. Les chambres sont immenses, assez dépouillées et très propres. Nous avons passé 15 jours à 10 personnes et à aucun moment on ne s'est senti à l'étroit. Merci à Mr Appy pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Nous recommandons chaudement cette location qui, pour nous, a participé grandement à nos vacances réussies.
