A gem in beautiful surroundings
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.
Lieu de villégiature exceptionnel
Magnifique mas situé au milieu des vignes et des oliviers, avec vue sur le Mont Ventoux et les Dentelles de Montmirail.
Les jardins sont splendides et l'appartement, avec sa décoration épurée, est bien équipé.
Nos remerciements à Christophe et Frédéric pour leur accueil et leurs précieux conseils.
Nous recommandons fortement cette location, non seulement pour passer un séjour au calme, mais aussi pour découvrir les richesses de la Provence.

This year was our second stay with Frederic and Christophe, after we fell in love with the property last year. We returned with the highest of expectations, which were created due to our stay last year. It blew our expectations away! This year they added a poolhouse which makes the perfect location even more perfect!
The location is breathtaking. It is in the middle of wine-country, situated in between the midst of the grapevines. It has a spectacular view of Mont Ventoux and has nothing other than complete peace and quiet! A perfect place to stay and enjoy the sun, the pool and of course the area and its wines!
The house itself was to our exact taste, as it is designed with a modern taste, very well executed to our opinion. We stayed in both the Loft and the Suite, and both are great! But what is more important is the outside where you will still most of the time, which is amazing. Like I said, nothing but peace and quiet to get away from it all by the pool or in the poolhouse, or to take a stroll through their vinyard.
The owners are just the nicest people you will meet, and will always be open for questions, tips, a small talk, but also very much respect your privacy.
The region is great, with Cairanne as a nice quaint little village. For a bit more to do, go to Vaison la Romaine which has a market once a week (do not miss!!). And of course all of the wineries in the neighbourhood, with Chateauneuf-du-Pape as the main attraction. Visit this little village, but also the vinyards in the surroundings.
In conclusion, Mas Akenes has reset the benchmark for us, and we will definitely stay as a recurring guest! Cant wait till next year!
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!
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
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!
