The Mas des Sorgues; entirely renovated in 2003, is an absolute little paradise perfumed with Provencal scents, beautifully maintained and where each detail has been specially thought and made to please. You may have breakfast outside on the main terrace next to the kitchen and lounge where tables await you in the shade of the Wisteria.

You may also enjoy meals under the shade of the covered summer kitchen in the courtyard and the magnificent Moroccan lounge, overlooking the pool, is one of the most charming and agreeable places in the garden.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is absolutely beautiful. From the layout to the art and decorating, this is not a standard house rental, this is a house that is truly exquisite. Each room has a flair of the French Provence – a bit eceletic, a bit modern, such a great mix of style – with great art and decorative pieces. The kitchen was brand new and our bedrooms all had double sinks and very nice beds and linen bedding.

The house is perfectly located, close to Avignon, Gordes, the highway and Luberon valley. It was 20 minutes to Chateauneuf de Pape and the same distance to Gordes and Avignon. There is a local village a 15 minute bike ride away – and the house had 4 bikes – a great morning activity to enjoy a café and fetch some baquettes.

Beverly was wonderful to deal with and so helpful, arranging reservations, giving advice on markets, local attractions, wineries, etc. You can tell she really enjoys what she does as she is very friendly and loves to have a good laugh. In fact, I left some clothes at the house when we departed and Beverly sent them to me right away – at her expense – to which I am reimbursing her for. I wish I had a Beverly for every vacation that I take!

"A wonderful two weeks!"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mas des Sorgues for two glorious weeks. Our first week we had 3 couples join us and the second week my 3 adult children and their friends joined us. The house and property were perfect. The house is beautifully decorated, and very well stocked. The bedrooms were spacious and all had there own bathrooms. We spent most of our time out of doors playing petenque, ping pong or just hanging out by the lovely pool. The town of Le Thor is centrally located. We visited many of the small towns, as well as Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Les Baux. Beverly is wonderful and set us up with a tour guide of the Vineyards, we loved Olivier so much, we booked him again for the second week. Beverly also organized a chef for us. We all loved Cossette and the incredible 3 course meals she prepared for us on 6 occasions.. I can't say enough about this amazing house. Our friends and family can't wait until we can go back again!

Great trip to Provence!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Mas des Sorgues with our two children and another family. We all loved the house, the grounds, the pool and the nearby towns. The home is impeccable and it is furnished in very good taste. The kitchen is fully stocked and it has everything you need, and each living space is very comfortable and easy. There are also numerous outdoor spaces tailored to eating, lounging or visiting. And, the bikes and ping pong table were an added bonus for our two families with active children! It couldn't have been a better place to stay, and we wish we could have been there longer.

Beverly, the caretaker, will handle everything you need and she's very efficient and organized. She can also help arrange catering or other services while you're here. She speaks English AND French, which comes in very handy for those from the US.

There were two drawbacks to the house: first, it didn't have a WC in each bedroom; the master was the only full bathroom with a WC and the other WCs were located in central hallways and bathrooms had to share them. Second, the house doesn't have air conditioning and it could get quite warm upstairs at night. This could be solved with some additional fans in the bedrooms and Beverly offered to buy them, if needed. These were two small shortcomings, and not enough to prevent us from having an amazing vacation!

We'd highly recommend Mas des Sorgues. I wish we could have stayed longer!
