Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I need to mention Jean Baptiste. I have hired dozens of holiday houses over the years, but he has been the best vendor we've come across. Nothing was too much trouble. For example, I stupidly allowed my car to run out of battery and he went out of his way to resolve the issue. He was also a great source of local information, having lived in the area all his life.

The house itself is a 16th century building with stone walls that are over 2 feet thick. It was therefore lovely and cool at all times, regardless of the temperature outside. It is an on-going refurbishment project (the top floor is as yet unrefurbished and out of bounds) but just counting the parts already refurbished make it a very large house. Although the refurbishment has been carried out relatively cheaply, it has been done effectively and made for a very comfortable experience.

Being Provence, it was 32-34 degrees celsius most days . But the well thought out large shady areas and the lovely pool made sure no one ever over heated.

In terms of the area, the house is perfectly located to explore one of the most beautiful parts of France. It's in between Bonnieux and Lacoste, and we spent a lot of time in Bonnieux in particular. The book " A Year in Provence" was set in this exact area, and was great to read while we travelled around exploring Menerbes, Roussilon, Gordes, Fomtaine-de-Vacluse, and countless other beautiful towns and villages.

Overall, a great experience and I very much hope to rent the house again from Jean-Baptiste in the near future.

Beautiful secluded Mas

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! From the moment we enquired to Jean Baptiste, he was always very prompt in responses to us. We had rented the property for the week after our wedding for us and friends and family. The house is stunning and with a very modern interior. The grounds are superb with a fantastic pool with a small kitchen attached. It was a wonderful home from home and the cherry orchards that surround it had the best tasting cherries any of us have ever had. We can't recommend the property highly enough in such a beautiful part of Provence.

Beautiful building, lovely pool!

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I all stayed in this gorgeous house for a week and had an amazing time. The building is beautiful and very tastefully done up, a real mixture of old meets new. The owner was great and very helpful. The whole area is so beautiful with lovely little French towns situated in the area, the scenery is like something out of a film. Hiring a car is essential. Also, bring insect repellent, there are some evil horseflies and and wasps in the grounds!!

Amazing Trip to 16th Century Mansion

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six from the United States. Our children range from 10 - 18, and we travel frequently. Words cannot adequately express the vacation we experienced at "Mansion of the 16th Century"! From the moment we arrived, greeted by the lovely owners, all of our needs and desires were well taken care of us. Jean and his wife gave us a tour of the home, inside and out, and told us to contact them if we needed anything! They even took our Christmas card picture for us later in the week. Prior to our arrival, Jean answered every question I had, and trust me, I had lots since we rent often from VRBO. He speaks very good English though he is modest about his abilities, and was so easy to work with concerning payment and deposits. As for the accommodation, the house is extraordinary! It is everything as described above, plus so much more. The house is very large, and all of my children had their own bedroom for once. The views from every room are spectacular. The house is very well maintained, and seems brand new if that is possible in a chalet built hundreds of years ago! There is a washing machine and large wash room which was handy. Also, all of the bathrooms had great water pressure and endless hot water! The grounds of the house are magical. Cherries were literally dropping from trees on the grounds, and my children loved hand-picking their own cherries every day! The yard is immense - we played kickball and soccer most very day. The pool is lovely - very large, with incredible views across to the mountains. It truly feels like something from a fairy tale. My husband and I are avid runners and bikes, and we found endless routes consisting of tiny roads winding in and around vineyards and up and down small hills overlooking lavender fields which were in bloom during our stay. Lacoste is a mile away, and we enjoyed running to the top to experience the expansive view! We also loved eating dinner out in Bonnioux which was a few miles away. This town truly felt like it was perched on the side of a cliff, and the waiters at the two restaurants we frequented became our friends by the end of our stay they were so nice and interesting to talk to. We made a day trip to Cassis, a lovely town on the coast, and also found several good hikes in the area. The days we didn't explore the area, we felt very at home in this gorgeous setting. In fact, I've decided I want to retire to Provence, this area in particular! I highly recommend "Mansion of the 16th Century".
