At the foot of the charming perched village of le Beaucet, is the spacious (400 sqm/4400sqf) stone villa, Mas des Falaises, built in the style of a country farmhouse with stunning views. Superbly decorated with traditional Provencal collections, the Mas has all modern amenities with its well equipped open kitchen and full ensuite bathrooms.

Four of the five bedrooms on the main level have full ensuite baths and the capacity to be furnished as king beds or as two twins making it comfortable for several couples or families with children, one of which is wheelchair accessible. Two studios with bathrooms on a lower level, offer more independence. The entrance to the house opens onto a large, bright living room, dining room, kitchen.

On arrival you can have a specially prepared meal ready to give you time to set up your own arrangements.

The Mas is within easy driving distance of l’Isle sur la Sorge, Avignon, Vaison-la-Romaine, Orange, Arles and the Abbaye de Senanque. Shop in the local market towns of St. Didier and Pernes les Fountaines and dine in Venasque, Pernes, or the surrounding vineyards like Domaine de la Camarette.

Le Vaucluse is noted for its excellent marked hiking and biking trails, ruggedly beautiful scenery, and access to Mont Ventoux and the Luberon yet it is close to the many historic towns of Provence for markets, antiques, historical sites, and Roman ruins.

About Henri Chevaux

Born in France, I fell in love with this scenic valley and Provence in general. In 1972 I built my own home here, and later the main guesthouse, which is detached and private. I owned a specialty heritage architectural design company and used many of those gifts in building the guest home. I want to share my love of this valley and nature with others from around the world.

Henri Chevaux purchased this mas in 1972

Why Henri Chevaux chose Ventoux - Carpentras area

It is rare that you can find such secluded, raw beauty of nature yet have all the benefits of Provence’s art, cultural, music and historic opportunities so close.

What makes this mas unique

I enjoyed finding the unique place to build such a retreat, etched into the side of the mountains, furnished with architectural artifacts from my years collecting antiques, surrounded by the harmony of the gardens and pool.

Surreal Heaven in Le Beaucet

  • 5 of 5

For Americans accustomed to "fast-food" sophistication, Henri's delightful villa is completely alien to our senses. Is it real? Does such a incredibly unique and well-appointed house seemingly teetering on the edge of Le Beaucet really exist? It is fantastic. Truly fantastic.

Without a doubt, my family and I will never, ever forget Monts de Vaucluse. Our only regret is that we had so over scheduled our trip to Provence that we did not have enough time to enjoy Henry's house to the fullest. Reserve at least one full day to enjoy Henri's house and wander the narrow streets of the sublime Le Beaucet. Can you find your way to castle on the top of the hill?

Warning: your GPS might send you directly up a steep street to the villa, which is situated on one of the many tiers of Le Beaucet. There are three other, safer ways to approach. Be advised! The first time to the house, in the dark, we went up that 60 degree incline, thinking it was our only way up! It was fun spinning gravel, but it scared the heck out of my kids!

I give this house my highest recommendation to both American urban-dwellers craving the chic and to the family vacationers wanting a little flare in their Provence stay. Children will love the infinity pool and the "themed" rooms -- in fact, my children argued half the night over who should get to stay in the "Sea Room." I loved the "Desert Room" the best. There are table games on the patio below. Washer and dryers are also available.

Henri was slightly ill during our stay, so I only got a chance to chat with him a few times. From what I gleaned, he is a sweet man, who has put his heart and soul into this house. It truly is a work of art.

All my best to Henri and all those with the good taste to enjoy Henri's luxury villa. Stay well.

Most beautiful place in Provence

  • 5 of 5

The Mas is more beautiful than even the photographs. The owner, Henri, who speaks French and English, made us so welcome to this special part of Provence. The house has 6 bedrooms, all with bathrooms en suite, all with the choice of beds together for a king size bed or twins. The kitchen is totally equipped and Brigitte is available to make delicious meals and provide the initial stock of items. Gracefully designed and exceptionally clean , it offers mid week towel exchanges and light cleaning.

The property, which looks out over the countryside, has been beautifully landscaped and is maintained to that standard. Totally private, yet close to Avignon, Abbaye de Senanque, Venasque , Pont du Gard and Arles for day trips. The graceful infinity pool is a welcome relief after a day's walking, cycling or touring.

Henri the owner is very helpful on local information, restaurants, and sights. While le Beaucet has only one restaurant, we enjoyed restaurants in Venasque, St Didier and Pernes les Fountaines.

As this is my second visit to this site, I would definitely recommend it to large families, groups of walkers and cyclists, two or three couples and groups of artists who enjoy the special colours of Provence. Ten different well marked walking circuits lead from the Mas over the stunning mountains of Vaucluse as well as cycling paths.

Definitely a jewel in a very special site.

The best...can't describe it otherwise

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the villa and its owner were a dream come true. The house (if you can believe it) is even better than on the pictures. The setting, the gardens, the pool are perfect for lounging around. Henri is such a gracious host, helpful and full of great advice. We also had the chance of meeting Brigitte who adds to the already sunny climate. Le Beaucet is a cute little town but you need a car for errands like going to the bakery (very nice one in St-didier about 10 minutes away). We will go back in the coming years.

Charming villa in natural environment

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week with a group of friends all aged 60+ in this quiet Provencal villa in the little village of Le Beaucet. We were 5 couples and one single person. We all had our own bedroom with ensuite bathroom. 6 of the bedrooms are spaceous and more or less equivalent but one bedroom, which we didn't use, is smaller and has no windows. The two bedrooms labelled as studio's are situated at the lower floor and are only accessible from outside. Use of an external stair is required which may be a little tricky for older people. Quality of the beds is excellent but some of them are close to the ground.

The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of space to eat inside or outside. We appreciated the meal which was offered by the friendly and knowledgeable owner, Mr. Henry, upon our arrival on Saturday. The decoration throughout the house is charming and there is a large collection of books and CD's. The swimming pool is well secluded and offers nice views of the mountain opposite the house. After the early morning hours it is in the shade for the rest of the day. We had most of our lunches next to the pool. Pool chairs are simple. There's a covered BBQ area. There's one decent restaurant in Le Beaucet itself, plenty in the surrounding area (St Didier, Venasque, L'Isle s/Sorgue, Carpentras, etc...). No surprises or extra costs at the end of the week, everything was included. Overall we were very satisfied with our choice!

Magnifique Mas, très spacieux, aussi beau à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur.

Splendide jardin, superbe piscine à débordement

Belle vue sur les falaises, calme absolu, endroit très reposant.

Beaucoup de balades et visites à faire.

Propriétaire très accueillant, fort sympa et très bon cuisinier, un succulent repas était prêt à notre arrivée.

Rien ne manque.

En famille ou entre pôtes, ce mas est vraiment conseillé.
