Superbly presented and appointed. A beautiful house in a fantastic location.

5 of 5
Absolutely fantastic house. We had a mixed group of family and friends who all loved it. There is something for all to enjoy, from the well appointed gym, the sound system, the excellent pool to the well appointed kitchen and interesting garden. We loved playing boules just outside the back gate and exploring the narrow streets of the town. The capacious laundry room accommodated our 4 bikes with room to spare for all our gear. Air conditioning is a big plus for this house, being efficient and easy to use. We found Simon extremely helpful and his restaurant recommendations are spot on. As keen cyclists the location is perfect. We could easily access both Mont Ventoux and Gorges de la Nesque without taking the car. There are also superb trails from the town for both running and walking, all of which can now be found on Strava. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. We will be back.

Special Mas in a Tranquil Setting

5 of 5
I had good contact with the owner from the beginning, who responded to my questions quickly. As illustrated by the photos, the mas is spacious and eclectic, filled with interesting artworks and furniture. Our group of friends all had their own bedroom space, each one different but comfortable. As the temperature outside increased, the mas remained cool and refreshing inside. It was very useful to have 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets for the group. Part-way through the week we had a problem with a blocked toilet but the owner was fast to resolve the issue. Newly installed wifi worked fine inside but only really useful for checking email and light browsing. The kitchen was well equipped with glassware, plates and cutlery etc. I would suggest a small investment in updating pots & pans and a few other things like sharp knives etc Outside, the communal stone table was used everyday as well the charcoal bbq. Again, we did not find useful bbq implements at the house so this would be a nice addition. The garden was blissful and we didn't experience much in the way of mosquitos (taken care of by the bats maybe). The beautiful, large and well-sheltered pool was heavenly. It is very clean and well maintained. Overall, it is one of the best rental properties that I have experienced and I look forward to returning there one day.
