Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely 2 weeks in Mas De La Vallette and found it perfectly situated for several little trips to the surrounding villages and towns. We made use of the local tennis courts and lessons and some of our party were able to go mountain biking too. The swimming pool at the villa is great!





The villa itself is lovely and the cleaner coming in twice a week is a real bonus and coming back to a clean villa was lovely. The cleaner was absolutely lovely, works extremely hard and does a great thorough job. Please say "Merci Beaucoup" to her as I did not see her on our last day.

Much loved summer holiday 2016

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 10 who stayed for 2 weeks in august 2016 for a relaxing summer break. Beverly was so very helpful from the initial enquiry to keeping in touch during our stay to ensure everything was well and we were happy with everything. The cleaners Isabelle and her daughter are very thorough and cleaned the house to a level that was beyond my expectation.

The house itself is beautiful, with lots of charm and character. Theres a lot of inside and outside space for a family of 10.

It was a real bonus having the pool house with the pool kitchen and the bbq so close to the swimming pool, sun loungers, large outside eating area. It was perfect for us to prepare and cook food whilst all being together by the pool area.

The villa is in a beautiful spot which is highlighted by the views over the valley below, which seems ever changing with the lighting.

If your up earlier enough there is a hot air balloon which you can watch take flight from the valley bellow every day at around 7am.

There is plenty of space for everyone to be together or find some piece and quiet away from the crowds. The pool was heated and a real hit with everyone of all ages, the electric cover was great at keeping the heat in the pool during the night.

Location wise was spot on, with an easy walk into the village for bread etc. 15 mins to a large supermarket, 10 mins to the beautiful Gordes and 20 mins to the town Apt as well as other large supermarkets. We would recommend for anyone looking for a lovely villa, with a gorgeous pool, with views of the surrounding areas, which is clean and in good order for a relaxed holiday in a beautiful location.

Our month in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Mas de la Vallette was the perfect house for our family of 12 to gather! We had a magical month, in the heart of Provence, but away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns. We could stroll down into Joucas for pastries every morning, then drive to one of the many towns and villages and wineries, all within a short drive. We would have lunch, then return home for naps, swims, and dinner. It was a great schedule for a group ranging in age from 11 to 80. Five of the nights a chef came in to prepare delicious dinners. Otherwise we shopped at the Super U or brought things from the markets. The outside gas grill was much in use. Our house manager, Beverly Ferritz, was lovely and helpful in any number of ways. She was always available and responsive to our needs. We considered her our Guardian Angel. It was truly a once in a lifetime holiday for all of our family.

Beautiful house and a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mas de la Valette for 1 week at the end of May and had our intimate wedding here. When we arrived, I couldn't believe how charming and gorgeous the property was! The photos just do not do it justice! Especially the view to the surrounding countryside towards the other Luberon villages. Both the Grand Maison and Petite Maison were clean, well maintained and decorated with quintessential Provencal decor. The garden was beautiful and bigger than what you can see in the photos. The house also had all the essentials that we needed for our stay, and the little touches like hair dryer in the washrooms made our stay that much better.

Our most heartfelt thank-you to Beverly for making us feel so welcome and for all her help before, during and after our stay - answering numerous emails and questions (there were a lot!) about the property, the area, suggestions for things we needed, etc. We couldn't have planned our wedding from another country without her generous help. Cosette cooked for our party of 20, and the food was just delicious! Exactly how we wanted our meal to be. The house was the perfect place for our wedding and we are so glad that we chose to come here. We would not hesitate to recommend the property and Beverly to anyone looking for a holiday home in Provence!

Joucas #218665

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, quaint Provence home located outside Joucas. The view from the pool is breathtaking. The area is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Easy to get to the local markets and wine tasting. Homeowners are lovely people who made us feel exceptionally welcomed. We rented the pool house which is perfect for two people. There is an additional unattached bedroom with full bath which we did not need to use. The pool house is comfortable, nicely appointed and the kitchen has very good appliances for cooking. We appreciated having access to the laundry. We had a wonderful time and would return again.

Maison idéale pour un Excellent séjour familial

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer un très agréable séjour d'une semaine en famille. La maison est très bien entretenue, très propre et incroyablement bien équipée : livres, jeux et DVD à disposition, nombreux rangements, bon équipement de cuisine et de lavage. La vue est sublime, le charme et le calme sont au rendez-vous. L'accueil par le propriétaire est charmant et le ménage en milieu de semaine est très appréciable. Nous étions une famille de 11. Les 3 chambres avec salle de bain privative sont très confortables. A noter : les 2 autres chambres sont plus petites et plus sombres. Celle qui peut accueillir 4 (avec 2 lits tiroirs) est la plus petite elle ne conviendrait pas pour des adultes.

C'est une destination idéale pour découvrir la région. Je recommande vivement cette location.
