Guestbook comments from the manager

Was lucky enough to stay for 5 lovely days in April. Just in time to catch the start of the asparagus season, fresh lamb and more. It's a foodie destination for those cooks and wine lovers out there. The kitchen even has an oyster knife!

Rustic mazet with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in July 2017, our 4th consecutive summer villa rental in this region. We've stayed at some luxurious, magnificent villas previously but this was our favourite due to the simplicity of the lifestyle and the incredible almost 360 views. The pool area is great, a good sized oxygen cleansed pool built on a large raised terrace and views of Ventoux and the village. The outside space is what makes this place so special and most evenings you can't beat the al-fresco dining watching the sunset.

The mazet itself is rustic and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. It's smaller than other places we've stayed but even when 6 of us were there was plenty of room. There are 4 good sized bedrooms all with lovely views, the best from the room with the top floor balcony.

Blauvac itself is a 3 minute drive or a 20 minute walk, there's a nice friendly bistrot and a small friendly Saturday evening market. A lovely well kept village, but the nearest Boulanger and supermarkets are in the next village just a short drive away. If staying here as a base for cycling it's the perfect location. Bedoin is an easy 30 minute ride away for anyone looking to ride Ventoux and the Gorges de la Nesque is even closer and can be ridden as part of doing Ventoux from Sault. And there are numerous other rides within range over in the Luberon.

The owner is very helpful and always replies to emails almost immediately. Loved our stay here and would love to return some time, highly recommended.

Set among vineyards and olive groves outside the village of Blauvac (now with its own bar and restaurant) with spectacular views of Mt Ventoux and hills of Monts de Vaucluse, the house is an hour and a half's drive from the vibrant port of Marseilles. It is within easy reach of historic Avignon (with its famous bridge and papal palace), Roman cities of Nimes and Orange (with amphitheatres), towns like Arles and Aix-en-Provence that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne. There are local markets on nearly every day in nearby villages with sleepy bars and excellent restaurants. Close-by are the vineyards of Dentelles, famed for its Gigondas and Chateauneuf de Pape wines, and the walking, swimming and cycling of the Pays de Ventoux. For info on bike hire, wine tours and walks - including a nocturnal ascent of Ventoux to see the sunrise over Mont Blanc - visit a tourist office.

Other Activities: Canoeing
