About Christophe & Frederic

After 20 years of an exciting career in the universe of the luxury, Christophe and Frederic decided to pose their bags in Cairanne in Provence in order to benefit differently from the life…

Christophe & Frederic purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Christophe & Frederic chose Haut-Vaucluse

We fall in love with this exceptional place. The weather, the view and the wine univers are facinating. The charm of Provence in a place mathcing design and tradition

What makes this cottage unique

Absolutely quiet place and amazing 360° view. The many festivals which mark out the season will get you as many occasions of new cultural discoveries. In winter, you can sky in Le Mont Serein (less than 1 hour by car). And we are close to Paris, 2h45 by fast train.

A gem in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and relaxing week we spent in this gem of a place.

Very well kept grounds, no traffic noise, surrounded by vineyards, with nice views over the lavender to Mont Ventoux and Dentelles de Montmirail.

We enjoyed the beautiful pool, the garden and the tranquil environment and serenity.

The apartment “the Suite” is well maintained and decorated in a modern style.

The pictures are a good representation.

Downstairs a big kitchen area, with floor cooling. For cooking enthusiasts , induction cooktop has only two elements. Everything else is available.

There is no separate living area, therefore a nice terrace outside.

Upstairs two spacious bedrooms, with heavenly beds, crisp linens and downy pillows, both with great views. In both bedrooms a big wardrobe and a small tv.

Nice bathroom with rainshower, fluffy towels, no separate toilet.

The appartment “the Loft”and its terrace is adjacent, separated by bamboo plants.

The location of the Mas is quite remote, you will need a car for shopping and sightseeing.

Frédéric and Christophe are wonderful hosts, they will help you with all your needs and have good suggestions to make your visit even more enjoyable.

This part of the northern Provence, a little less touristy, is really worth visiting, simply beautiful.

It is definitely a great spot to use as a base for exploring all of the nice towns (Vaison-la-Romaine, Orange, Carpentras), picturesque villages like Séguret and the famous Provencal markets.

For wine lovers, you are in heaven. Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Rasteau, Beaumes de Venise and all the other wine villages are all within a 30-minute drive.

This area is stunningly beautiful, with amazing light and oceans of vines everywhere. Truly heaven on earth and a place we'd like to come back again.

Subliem!

  • 5 of 5

Ideale bestemming voor al wie van rust houdt. Prachtig gelegen met fantastisch uitzicht. Het huis ligt wat afgelegen(dus geen andere huizen eromheen), doch dicht bij het dorp! De gastheren wonen er ook maar zijn héél discreet, sympathiek en behulpzaam. De kamers en keuken beantwoorden volledig aan de beschrijving en zijn heel netjes. Een perfecte ligging als uitvalsbasis om de regio te bezoeken!

An amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a place that you would like to keep secret from the rest of te world! The apartment (loft) is perfect, spacious, well maintained, nicely styled, there is everything you need. The garden is really big with lovely 360 degree views at vineyards, olive trees and the mountains. In the area there is lots to see and do, the Vaucluse has lots to offer. Frederic and Christophe are wonderful hosts. We definetely would like to come back again!

Beautiful getaway in Cairanne

  • 5 of 5

I booked La Suite at Les Mas de Akenes as part of a month-long journey through France and Italy for wine education. The location is perfect for touring wine villages in Provence and the southern Rhone (Vacqueras, Gigondas, Chateauneuf du Pape, etc. are all within about a 30 minute drive). The Cote Rotie (northern Rhone area) is about a 90 minute drive, so a very easy day trip.

La Suite is exactly as described in the listing, and the property is very clean and maintained impeccably. Kitchen was stocked sufficiently with pots/pans/utensils/dishes for cooking, but you'll need to purchase all food items, including basic staples (e.g., salt, pepper, olive oil, etc.) if you want to cook. Not a big deal for us, since we were on an extended journey, but just something to note for reference. Bedrooms were lovely - comfortable linens and beds, and lots of storage space. There isn't a cozy common area with a sofa or chairs inside La Suite - there are tables in the kitchen and on the patio, and several padded lounge chairs outside - but the weather was beautiful while we were there, so the lounge chairs were perfect for relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine. The view of the sunset from the pool was simply breathtaking!

Frederic and Christophe are wonderful and accommodating hosts. The check-in/check-out processes were very easy, and they provided lots of helpful recommendations and directions for restaurants, grocery shopping, etc. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Les Mas de Akenes to friends or colleagues visiting Provence or the Rhone Valley, and will most certainly stay there again should I be lucky enough to have my travels take me back that way again. Merci beaucoup!

Profiter des charmes de la Provence

  • 5 of 5

Le mas est situé dans un site splendide entouré de vignes et de lavande, avec un immense jardin offrant une vue panoramique sur les alentours. Il est équipé de tout le confort permettant d'y passer un séjour agréable et reposant. Les propriétaires sont charmants, très accueillants et d'une discrétion remarquable.

Grâce à leurs suggestions, nous avons vraiment profité de la région, entre détente et découverte….

Un seul regret: nous aurions aimé pouvoir rester plus longtemps dans cet endroit que nous recommandons vivement.
