“You found it. Great. Now keep it to yourself.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Well we had never been to Provence before so maybe that has something to do with it, but we have NEVER had a better overnight experience anywhere. (And my wife takes to most hotels like a fish to turpentine.) "Bob" and Christiane were awesome -- very friendly and helpful but neither overbearing nor OCD-afflicted. The place was in great shape. I took more pictures from our balcony than from anywhere else on our trip. Breakfast was delicious. It was too cold for the pool but the space around it was terrific. And all the everything worked great. It's a few clicks away from Roussillon but that mattered not a whit. The only caveat I can think of is that we were there in October so it was empty; don't know if "in-season" occupancy would have affected our experience much--but I doubt it. In short, go there. And don't tell your friends.

Room Tip: Le Loft can't be beat, I bet.

My parents and I had an absolutely wonderful stay. Breakfast was superb, everything of the highest quality. The rooms were so clean. The owners were so helpful and organised some wonderful meals for us. It was very hard to leave. Thankyou!

We wanted to stay in the Luberon for one night (much too short) and many hotels and b&bs were booked or extremely expensive, and now I'm glad they were because it caused me to do more online research to find Le Mas Destonge. It is just a lovely b&b and we felt such a warm welcome by Christiane and Robert when we arrived. My husband and I had a large room, apparently the oldest area of the hotel, which was tastefully and beautifully decorated, with wooden beams on the ceiling, with a huge, well-equipped bathroom. My daughter and her friend had a room decorated in Provencal style with a bed and a daybed...very pretty. They had a shower they said was "awesome"!

There is a living room and a large family-type room where one could relax, a nice breakfast area, an inviting porch outside, pretty grounds...just much nicer than we envisioned. Breakfast was very good...with Christiane's home-made preserves, croissants, etc. It is in the country, though not far from Roussillon, very quiet and comfortable. We wish that we could have stayed longer than just one night.

We drove to Roussillon after checking in and it is just picture-perfect. The ochre-colored buildings are beautiful....a charming town. Believe me, you will take many pictures there of the town itself and the view from the village.

Christiane and Robert couldn't have been more hospitable and charming. We felt we got to know them just in an overnight stay. We feel that one needs more time in the Luberon as it is lovely. We made a quick trip from the Cote d'Azur, the Arles/St. Remy area of Provence (where we had been on previous trips), and wanted to see what the Luberon was like. It is certainly worth a longer stay and we highly recommend Le Mas Destonge as your b&b of choice. We hope to go back again one day to see what we missed and renew our acquaintance with Christiane and Robert.

Room Tip: If our rooms were any indication, I would imagine they are all nice. They do have photos of the roo...

In the Le Mas Destonge we really can use the expression "feeling like home". It was exactly my feelings about this wonderful place.

I was in honeymoon, and the great place and the wonderful landscape, was perfect for romance moments.

We were very well welcome for the "trés simpatique" couple Christine and Bob.

The other guests were amazing also, and a few moments we were all together exchanging experiences about the great sites to visit in Provence, vinyards to taste wines, delicious restaurants with Provence food and herbes, and oil and cheese farms.

The Le Mas Destonge is very well located , in the middle of the grapes plantation, with the cosy village Roussillon, 5 minutes by car. Its near Gordes where you can see the lavandes.

The hotel also have two bikes for a private hide in the locations.

The breakfast was most than completely with an yogurt that I always dream to try again, but I didn’t found some similar in Brazil :/

We didn’t tried the Christine food, but if you have a chance, don’t miss it, because she is a “Cordon Bleu” Chef. I hope to have a chance in the next time.

Oh yeah .. I’m planning to be back next year to spend unless one week, because this is one place that is worthy to visit.

Excellent accommodation, well appointed rooms, clean with comfortable large bed. Well kept grounds and lovely pool. Delicious breakfast with local and homemade products. Host provided great welcome and were helpful throughout our three night stay, giving tips on where to visit and booking restaurants for our evening meals.

It is actually the best hotel we stayed at during our long trip across France. We've stayed at 9 different hotels while travelling in Loire valley and Provence, and this is the best.
The decoration of rooms is wonderful. Hosts are very hospitable. We will definetely stay at this hotel next time we travel in Provence.

We stayed for three nights at Le Mas Destonage and had a wonderful experience. The villa is lovely, with beautiful shuttered windows with a view and tastefully decorated themed rooms. The breakfast is just right with fresh baked breads, croissants and fruit. The pool is a little cool, but on a hot provence day it hits the spot. And the hosts are great. Try and use your french if you can. They speak very little english, but they are friendly and warm. It is easy to find with a GPS, and only minutes drive from the town of Roussillion, where you can walk the red hills and wander the cobblestone streets. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All are lovely
