“Great room, terrific food, wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

My wife and I spent a wonderful week here while exploring the Luberon region. Pierre and Francoise were gracious and fun hosts, providing not only terrific meals from fresh local ingredients, but also dispensing travel advice about the local hill towns. While other guests sunned themselves around the swimming pool, we enjoyed a pastis and played Pétanque, the local game similar to boche. Our room was spacious, extremely comfortable, well furnished and updated with all modern conveniences. We shall return to this beautiful, picturesque inn.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our top floor room overlooking the courtyard and valley beyond, but choose the ground flo...

Discovered the Mas des Capalans on the outskirts of Oppéde at the last minute whilst on a whistle-stop tour through a - fully booked - Luberon National Park (a chance-upon and a late cancellation allowed us to stay 3 nights)...

We feel we were very lucky indeed to have found such a special place.

Well situated for exploring the Luberon region (Ménerbes, Goult, Viens, Lacoste, Bonnieux etc.) and wider Provence, Mas des Capalans offers a genuinely unique hotel experience with all the charm and ambience of a traditional family farm-stead delivered with an intelligent, inspiring and entertaining service that is both traditional and refreshingly progressive.

Proprietor Francois is that rare person: the consummate professional with an infectious enthusiasm for their craft - she is a truly gifted host who provides a natural and unspoilt Provencal setting for a unique family experience.

The hotel warmly welcomes guests from a wide range of cultural backgrounds (who cannot help but become acquainted, such is the relaxed and informal character of the place) with its fabulous family of management and staff.

Our traditionally inexhaustible 2+ year old found a home from home, made friends around the swimming pool, stayed safe and slept soundly... a wonderful place for parents that manages to be toddler & child friendly whilst retaining an authenticity that adults will appreciate...

Evenings spent in the pretty courtyard (as part of the half board tariff) proved to be the highlights of our stay - a series of Provencal menus, wines and conversations that combined to leave us with an unforgettable impression of the area and our hosts...

That we fell in love with the Petit Luberon region is perhaps largely due to us having fallen for Mas des Capalans... we look forward to returning some time soon.

Room Tip: Book well ahead
