This is the 2nd trip we've made to Menerbe, and the Luberon, in the past 3 years. Our first trip we stayed at a wonderful bastide, very nearby. We loved it and didn't think we could improve on it. We were wrong! The Mas du Magnolia exceeded our expectations. The room we stayed in was large, with many windows and cross breezes floating through. The grounds are beautiful, with a view of Menerbes from the turquoise pool. The common property is delightful. It's a picture perfect 'Mas' in the picture perfect Luberon.
Mireille & Pierrick, the hosts, are beyond charming. Pierrick won my husband over immediately with an informal game of golf on their little green (which he 'let') my husband win. Mireille booked a perfect bistro each night for us as we'd told her how important food is to us! And, we were fortunate to enjoy one of her wonderful home-cooked meals as well. She introduced me to her wonderful seamstress at the local market who made me a beautiful linen table cloth.
Tess & Gary, the delightful golden retrievers, made us smile each day and helped us feel even more at home.
Our perfect days were spent leisurely exploring the various villages, and lazing by the pool in the late afternoon.
We truly will be back. We miss it already and recommend it strongly!
