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 owner, Henri Cheveaux, who speaks English and French, has lived for 40 years on the same domaine with detached entrance. He loves to share his knowledge of the area with you.

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 Le Beaucet

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.

Un mas trés beau et original dans un cadre fabuleux.

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour ,

Notre séjour chez vous a été très apprécié de tous et j'ai tenu à transmettre nos impressions à d'éventuels vacanciers.

Ce lieu est d'une beauté à couper le souffle, comme le mistral sait si bien le faire !

Un mas dans une propriété rustique, aménagée en harmonie avec cette magnifique région qu'est le Luberon, mais néanmoins fonctionnelle.

La belle piscine à débordement avec la falaise en face est telle qu'on la voit sur les photos.

A l'intérieur, grâce à l'agencement des chambres, chacun a un espace indépendant où se retirer. Un peu plus de lumière dans les chambres et sanitaires serait bienvenu !

La cuisine, la salle à manger, le salon avec une grande cheminée sont un seul grand volume et représentent le coeur de la maison autour duquel se trouvent les chambres, ce qui rend cet espace très convivial. Ajoutons les livres, une chaîne hi fi, une grande variété de CD et tout est dit.....

Tout ceci est le reflet du propriétaire qui a élaboré ce mas avec passion pour accueillir ses hôtes. Il vous le racontera, prenez le temps de l'écouter....."

wunderschönes Haus im Landhausstil

  • 5 of 5

Wir, 4 Elternpaare um die 50 und ein paar halberwachsene Kinder, waren nun schon das 3. Mal in diesem herrlichen Haus. Die Zimmer sind sehr detailverliebt in unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen eingerichtet, dabei mit moderner Technik (super Küche, WLAN). Man kann toll drinnen und draußen an einer langen Tafel speisen. Der großzügig überdachte Grill dient auch als Unterstellplatz für die Fahrräder. Der Pool ist klasse mit seinem schattenspendenden Bäumchen und ist sehr gut gewartet . Der Vermieter ist äußerst hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich ohne je zu stören. Obwohl direkt unterhalb Le Beaucet gelegen, fühlt man sich frei, da die anderen Häuser nicht zu sehen sind. Ein wunderschöner großer Garten umgibt die Villa und man geniest einen tollen Blick über das Tal auf die gegenüberliegende Felswand. Es war auch kein Problem, daß einer von uns die Gitarre dabei hatte und wir die Songs der 70ger lauthals zum Besten gaben. Zu empfehlen ist auch das Café im Ort mit kleiner, leckerer Küche und deutscher Besitzerin. Bäckereien und kleine Läden für Obst und täglichen Bedarf befinden sich in der nächsten Ortschaft. Wir haben für nächstes Jahr schon gebucht...

Une bastide idéale pour grande famille - Ideal 'bastide' for large families

  • 5 of 5

Réunion familiale avec enfants et petits-enfants pour célébrer nos 50 ans de mariage.

Nous étions 12, mais la taille de la maison et sa disposition permet à tous de se retrouver dedans ou dehors, dans le grand salon ou dans la salle à manger d'été ou autour de la vaste piscine, mais aussi de s'isoler ou de vaquer à des activités personnelles.Décoration originale, théâtrale et réussie et équipement et confort très complets. Le site est superbe. Tous ont été enthousiasmés du séjour.

Family reunion with children and grand-children to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

A party of 12, yet the size and layout of the house enabled us to get all together in the large lounge or the outdoors dining room or around the vast swimming pool, or to remain alone and attend to private matters. Very original and pleasant decoration, on the theatrical side, fully equipped, very comfortable. The environment is superb. All were enthusiastic about the stay.
