Built out of stone with original floor tiles and fireplace etc. We have modernised the bathrooms and kitchen whilst keeping all the original features with end result of a typical Provencal village house with 21st century improvements.

Lovely, well appointed house in great area

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful house with some fantastic touches; so lovely arriving to fresh cut flowers and a fully stocked fruit basket - Simon takes real pride in providing his guests with a luxurious stay and that's what we had.

It was also a great house to have kids in, with the provision of not only a cot and a high chair, but even a buggy - so useful for helping to cut down on the packing.

The house is really well served by the surrounding village, with lots of bakeries, restaurants, shops and amenities - you don't have to travel far to find what you need, everything is walkable and there are some great markets.

All in all a lovely holiday with fantastic weather throughout.

lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We spended 7 days together with the whole family in this beautyful house. It was exactly as it is shown on the pictures. Everything was clean and cosy. We loved the garden. Having breakfast in the morning sun and reading books and livestyle magazins in the protectiv shadow of an olivetree. The village is beautyful and the house is located in the middle of this town. We really had a great time over there and we can recommend this accommodation.

We (4 couples) spent a week in this beautiful house, perfectly located on the edge of the old town in historic Pernes les Fontaines. It was luxurious in every way, from the individually controlled cooling in every room, to the overstuffed white sofas and well stocked kitchen - including cheeses, fruit, juice and bottles of chilled rose to greet our arrival. And so beautiful, the sign of a house owned and decorated by an interior designer and generous host, Simon. From evening drinks in the lit garden, a swim in the pool, lunch on the shaded terrace, sleeping in crisp Egyptian cotton sheets, this was an amazing and totally indulgent experience.

Magnificent slice or Provencial heaven

  • 5 of 5

Mas Louise is an incredibly revived home with permeating sunlight, French charm, and all conveniences to make your experience in the south of France truly divine. The Richards have lovingly restored this historic home and the pictures reflect each detail. While my husband and I vacationed on our own, we could imagine multiple couples or generations of a family simply adoring The Richards home. Simon graciously welcomed us to an impeccably clean home with every kitchen detail imaginable and provisions to get us started. Wine, fresh flowers, caffeine, and fruit were much appreciated thoughts after long travel days. Pernes les Fontaine is centrally located to so many Provencial towns and made for painless day trips and easy access to the beautiful little town of Pernes. Mas Louise is within walking distance of every amenity you may desire. Unplugged and relaxed, we are eager to plan our next journey. Many thanks!
