About Splendid Mas Provencal
This typical and extremely well-presented old Mas is a magnificent, south-facing stone building. It is located on an exceptional site, a haven of peace at the foot of the Mounts of Luberon, on the heights of the lovely village of Bonnieux.
Although adjacent to the Natural Reserve of Luberon and to the Forest of Cedars, the Mas is only 1 km of the village of Bonnieux, close to shops, restaurants and bars.
The property is situated in the heart of its own exceptional parc of 5 hectares alive with all the colours of Provence. Nature is all around you as you stroll in a landscaped garden, surrounded by fruit trees and a field of wonderful lavender. The atmosphere is heady from the myriad Mediterranean essences. You will be amazed by the old "bories" and ruins you will come across in the middle of the park. Meanwhile, in the Provençal courtyard which is shady and protected, you will find a shady corner to enjoy a coffee, a refreshing tea, a 'gouter' or an apéritif. In the centre of the courtyard is a big fountain fed by spring water.
The stone house, 380 m2, is completely renovated and has air-conditioning throughout (in every room). All 8 bedrooms are decorated with Travatine stone (toilets, Italian showers and bathtubs).
The Provençal kitchen has a central island and all you need to make wonderful meals if you so wish.
In addition, to enhance the luxury of your surroundings, you can enjoy the Finnish sauna, a Jacuzzi in the heart of nature, looking over the heated swimming pool and hammam is to be finished by April 2022. The spa is supplied with essential oils, as is the Finnish sauna.
The pool is 75 m2 and is protected at night by an electric curtain. There is also an outside shower.
Note the big fireplace and sound systems inside and outside for your musical evenings.
You can take advantage of garden furniture situated near the swimming pool and the multiple areas to dine alfresco.
And under a shady pergola, you'll find another seating area with 16 deckchairs.
You will discover an immense space for lunches and dinners with a huge barbecue and a stone kitchen sink, a plancha and a pizza oven. In front of the summer kitchen are two big stone tables where more than 20 guests can have lunches or dinners. This alfresco dining area is shaded by an iron pergola covered with Virginia creeper.
You will find a second area dedicated to dinner situated under the terrace lining the lounge not far from the kitchen, and with space for more than 20 guests.
Varied walks are possible in the landscaped garden with its fountains and statues, in the Forest of Cedars, in the private park, or in the field of lavender.
There are loads of activities to while away the hot summer days and the balmy evenings: table tennis, the kiddies' swing, an area for playing boules, a fitness space, a field for soccer or handball, a basketball area, table football, and a castle slide.
Two cotton hammocks await those who dream about a well-deserved rest after all the sports activity.
At night, all the spaces are lit up: the Provençal patio, the garden, the swimming pool, the barbecue area.
From the second terrace, you will discover a breathtaking sight over the Luberon, the garden, the Forest of Cedars and particularly the village of Lacoste.
Bonnieux is a medieval village perched at the top of a hill at the heart of the park of Provençal Luberon and makes an ideal starting point to discover and taste wines of the Luberon and Ventoux.
Provence is renowned for its treasures such as truffles, olive oil, honey, tapenades, flowers. And let's not forget the varied wildlife: foxes, wild boars, hares and birds of prey are abundant in this region so close to the Park.

Our American family of 16, ages 20-62, rented this fabulous villa for a week in early summer. The villa was well-equipped, a lovely mix of traditional Provencal with modern comforts, and spacious. But the grounds were the really special aspect. Situated in this beautiful nature preserve, the grounds featured beautiful gardens, hiking trails, large swimming pool, hot tub, petanque court, ping-pong table, outside barbeque, inside and outside eating areas, old stone ruins, and wonderful views of the villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste from some of the villa rooms. It was easy driving distance to nearby villages (walking distance from Bonnieux) as well as to Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, and Chateau-neuf-de-Pape. We also took a hot air balloon ride in nearby Roussillon.
I highly recommend this property as either a base from exploring Provence or a place to relax amid the quaint villages of the Luberon mountains. I only wish we had booked for two weeks so we could do both more fully! Edith, a local chef prepared our first night dinner and did a cooking class mid-week for us at the villa.
Our group of 18 were celebrating a 50th birthday. Our total surprise when we arrived at this magical place and all the incredible details and comforts that were supplied were like a fairytale. The property was well kept, the rooms all comfortable and having own bathrooms for large group was exceptional. We received 5 star service from all the staff and were delighted by all the nooks and crannies of places to just be together, near pool, in the garden, dinners outside, kids loved the place as well. We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants top notch location and superb comfortable and gorgeous setting as well as divine spacious home.
