Sports & Adventure Activities
Best in France
We have been lucky to stay at this property for a week last fall and another eleven nights now (April, 2018). It is simply the best vacation rental we have ever had in France. And that includes many, many rentals over the years. The house works well and provides for every need: excellent washer AND separate dryer, dishwasher, cooking facilities and supplies, bathrooms, beds. The location is spectacular, with magnificent views. The rural setting is beautiful and tranquil. The six hens provide great entertainment, with their welcoming ways. Most of all, the owners, Didier and Therese are very wondeful people, warm and determined to solve any problem. We’ve only ever encountered one problem: the internet had a glitch when we arrived this time. They could have easily given up on this, but went to great lengths to solve the problem, even while in the midst of a family 100th birthday celebration! These are the kind of people anyone would be lucky to have as friends. We are now trying to plan some trip to France just so that we can lease this beautiful house again! Thank you, Therese and Didier for sharing your beautiful home, and for your amazing hospitality!

What dreams are made of.
Imagine yourself as the heat of the day is gently coaxed away by a cool breeze that accompanies dusk every evening. Dining al fresco, enjoying all the delicious culinary treats Provence has to offer or have a local chef prepare dinner for you as a special treat. As the sun sets, Lacoste and Bonnieux begin to twinkle on the nearby hilltops as the stars emerge and you reminisce about yet another wonderful day creating unforgettable memories visiting exquisite villages and natural wonders which are all close-by. Rest in comfortable beds and enjoy the distant sounds of cicadas which lull you to sleep. And then as dawn creeps into this sleepy valley, and unsure if you are still dreaming, you see yourself swanning about each morning in a kitchen so new it gleams, only to cook breakfast using fresh eggs from the resident hens. Just as you pinch yourself, you find that you have the kindest of hosts who welcome you and cater for you like their own family and ensure every guest feels at home here. This is what dreams are made of and we will never forget our stay here and the kindness and warmth from our beautiful hosts, Therese, Didier and Roger. Eve, Matt and the children :-)
Just what we were hoping for...!
We just loved this place! The house was spacious, clean, light - 4 full bedrooms and 2 full baths with great showers. The kitchen was a dream - we prepared several meals there with food we bought in town and at the local markets. As another reviewer mentioned, everything was very high quality, from the appliances down to the cutlery...I wanted to stay forever! It is so peaceful - I have never seen that many stars at night! We did not meet the owner Didier, but we communicated by text and telephone with no problem. Roger, who I believe lives on the premises, was there to welcome us and show us around the home. We found it with no problem using Google Maps (not sure that we would have otherwise...). We wanted a remote spot to get away, but somewhere that would be a good start for day trips around the area. Perfect! Except that we loved the town of Bonnieux so much that we didn't want to go anywhere else! All the local people were friendly and helpful, and there are great restaurants there. We especially loved l'Arome. We did make several day trips, to L'Isle sur la Sorgue (a nice town but it was pouring rain so we didn't really get to do much), Lourmarin, Menerbes and Lacoste....all very close and all charming. We loved the Friday market in Bonnieux - a great spot to pick up last-minute souvenirs and gifts, like handmade soaps, lavender sachets, gorgeous olive wood spoons, cutting boards, etc., delicious food items, and of course local cheese, bread and vegetables. We visited several wineries and tasting rooms in the area....All of us are wine lovers, and we were amazed at the value of the local wine...so delicious and so inexpensive! So yes, we loved it all! Next time we will definitely stay longer...five days in heaven was not nearly enough!
We consider that a nice, comfortable and welcoming home is the key to a nice holiday. Also it enables you to appreciate our lovely Provence and all its treasures.
We do our utmost to meet our guest expectations as if it were for ourselves and even better ...
Being our genuine family house for several generation, we endeavor leaving it as close as possible to its original atmosphere, only keeping up the standards of cleanliness, hygiene and comfort.
And it is our best reward when our guests can feel all this, together with the satisfaction of a fulfilled holiday and when they come back with such pleasant and kind comments.
Thank you most sincerely !
Therese and Didier
Un coin de serenite
Cette ferme qui a appartenue a la meme famille pour six generations a une ame. On se sent tout de suite chez soi. La propriete a gardee tout son carcatere tout en repondant aux besoins de notre vie moderne. La grande cuisine est tres bien amenagee ainsi que la salle de sejour avec sa grande cheminee qui nous rechauffe quand le soirees sont fraiches.
Ce mas est situe au milieu des vignobles, des champs de coquelicots et des champs de lavande qui l'on voit bleuir un peu plus de jour en jour.
Bonnieux est a 5 kilometres et on peut voir le soir les lumieres qui s'allument une par une sur la colline. Tout autour les montagnes du Luberon nous offrent un spectacle qui change du matin avec la brume et le soir avec le soleil couchant qui enflame les collines.
De nombreux petits villages pittoresques sont a decouvrir anisi que les marches provencaux.
Ce mas est spacieux. C'est un paradis pour ceux qui cherchent la serenite.
Les proprietaires sont extremement acueillants et font tout ce qui est necessaire pour rendre votre sejour memorable.
J'espere bien y revenir.
65 Days in the Luberon
After arriving in France we spent five nights in Paris before training to Avignon, picking up a car and driving towards Bonnieux. We had made our selection long before coming to France. This property was nicely situated in the countryside but still in walking distance to Bonnieux. We were not disappointed. As we drove up to this magnificent house we were greeted by a smiling and generous host. Not only was there a welcoming basket including bread, fruit, wine and beer, but the property far exceeded our expectations. We even had our first evening meal prepared for us. It was spotlessly clean and roomy with a modern kitchen, laundry etc. Great attention to detail has been made, with high quality furnishing, linen,crockery and cutlery. The kitchen was a dream to work in, with a brand new stove and oven.
Our stay from mid-spring to early summer allowed us to see this amazing area transform. We watched lavender fields burst into flower, vineyards go from budding to full growth and cherries ripen for the picking. Walking up the lane in the evenings to pick cherries and look at the lavender was a highlight. We walked all around Bonnieux, visited all the surrounding hill top villages and local markets. There were two quality vineyards within a few kilometres of the house. Coustellet's market each Sunday was a highlight. This property is so special that we soon felt at home and really did begin to feel that it was our very own. All four bedrooms are large with outstanding views up to Bonnieux. It was truly a stay of a lifetime, something very special to us and something we will never forget and cherish forever. While there we welcomed four groups of friends who stayed from two days to two weeks. They too loved this property, it's tranquility and it's open surroundings. We really can't speak too highly of this great house and it's owners.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce très beau mas de mr et mme Hugues. Notre hôte est charmante, disponible et pleine de bons conseils sur cette région. Le mas est une vraie maison familiale, rien ne manque. Il y a même une grange pleine de trésors pour les enfants ainsi que piscine et balançoire et en bonus, deux ânes et des poules! Bref, un endroit parfait que nous avons partagé à deux familles avec des enfants en bas âge. Nous ne pouvons que recommander!
