Why Barbara Egan, Philippe Mougne chose Joucas
The home conveys Provence's magic. The home's seductive charm, authenticity, desirable location and tranquility attracted us to the property. Le Mas des Gardiols is ideally located on a Luberon plateau amid all the 'most beautiful' villages in France. Yet it is a sanctuary, away from the torrent of summer tourists visiting the Luberon's more widely advertised locations. Les Gardiols residents are local, life-long residents. Roman ruins next to examples of church and French history are sprinkled throughout the region. Lavender fields, sunflower crops, vineyards, apple and cherry orchards and olive trees glorify the natural surroundings. The location is also just about an hour to the Mediterranean beaches to the south or Mont Ventoux to the North.
What makes this Villa unique
Our home conveys the authentic, true French country living experience. Discover French country life in a true medieval home.You will become part of a small, rural French community. You're in charge. You can design your stay. You can choose to be apart from or among tourists. Dine in the flower-filled courtyard under the stars in the peace and quiet of the Luberon countryside in a hamlet that has existed since the year 900, a home that once served as the hamlet's bakery, both retaining the charm and character of old Provence. Take a short scenic walk up the hill to the perched medieval Provence village of Joucas for your fresh bread and croissants. The small Joucas market can provide all of your culinary needs. Farmers' markets occur daily in nearby picturesque villages of Roussillon, Gordes, Goult, Menerbes, and Bonnieux.
