“Gourmet Charm Defini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

After along drive and somewhat difficult late dinner in Roussilon, we arrived at our auberge de charm, to find bright provence colors, crisp clean sheets and fabulous open airy bathrooms. We, first shared a room with loft bedroom,as a couple, two mother-in-laws and 2 dogs. Quiet comfortable sleep followed in the morning with a large farm table for all guests to come, in their own time, to table - offered homemade, fresh daily creamy yogurt, fig jam, cherry preserves, kiwi, banana, hot coffee and fresh croissants with fresh orange juice. Proprietor Robert was attentive and friendly, keeping the coffee hot and flowing and offering the morning sports page, if asked. The morning room is well decorated, preserved wood beams and bright colors, with a charming fireplace. Throughout the guest rooms are charming local paintings of Luberon landscapes, coveted by all in our party. We stayed 4 nights, moving to a two-bedroom suite and enjoyed a fantastic home cooked lamb shank meal, complete with aperitifs of rose with peach leaves steeped inside, candied cherry tomatoes, a fresh selection of area goat cheeses, to-die-for scalloped potatoes and a great mix of conversation. Christianne worked hard, running up to laundry and clean rooms while we enjoyed our morning repast. She brought her beautiful baby granddaughter in for a visit, one morning at breakfast. The smells of the lamb shank permeated all day before dinner. The dogs were allowed in for a warm nap by the fire. They allowed us to come in from daily Provence travels and create our own late night meals, using the kitchen and sideboard of treasured china. We really enjoyed getting to know them and hope they don't become too busy- as they both work so hard. They restored the property from abandonment to charm over ten years of painstaking work. I was able to procure two jars of the homemade fig jam, which I had layered generously each morning throughout the creamy fresh yogurt. Robert sent us to another memorable dinner in Roussillon proper, peppered throughout with everyone's oohs and ahhs. Christianne provided all with the best days in each Luberon town close by that had whatever market goodies we desired. Memorable through all five senses - this was a highlight of my long May in France this year.

Room Tip: the two we were blessed to sleep in, each had a wonderful view, one of the pool and one of the garde...

My wife and I stayed at Mas Destonge in July 2012 on our way from Paris to VilleFranche. Very relaxed feel in nice, extensively restored farmhouse with pool in the farm country below Rousillon. Good location to relax and day trip to small villages, go biking or running on the roads. The local cheese, produce, provided with the breakfast were very good. The owners can guide you to specialties of surrounding towns.

This charming "chambre d'hôte" is perfectly located.The buildings, garden and pool were lovely. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious - homemade jams and yogurts, fresh pastries, fruit, etc. Overall a very nice stay.

Why stop in the crowded towns when you can stop in the countryside surrounded by vineyards and lavender fields? From the time you are welcomed by Christine and Robert, you know you have made the right choice. Rooms are spotless and cleaned every day, breakfast are plentiful and if you get the chance of a host meal you won’t be disappointed. We chose Le Mas Destonge so we could discover Provence and it’s ideally situated for that purpose, whilst allowing you to escape at the end of the day. Christine has plenty of ideas for visits and also places to eat, do ask and she will always make a reservation for you. The other great plus is that if you want to stay around the house and pool all day, you can do so without feeling that you should really go out for several hours. Le Mas Destonge is all very relaxing and certainly worth another visit.

My family rented 2 rooms here for several nights. Both rooms were large and airy with huge bathrooms, and were decorated and painted attractively. The hosts, Christine and Robert, were very cordial, and the breakfasts they served were delicious, especially Christine's homemade jams. There is an unheated swimming pool in a beautiful garden; if you go during hot weather, the pool will be very refreshing after a long dusty day of sightseeing in the nearby hill towns. If the weather is bad, there is a large and comfortable community living room. Plenty of parking for your car here, as the house is in the countryside with lots of space around it. Roussillon itself, a tiny town about 2 or 3 miles away, is beautiful. The buildings are coated with the red ochre that is found in the area, and the little town glows in the light. There is a nice walk through red rock formations near the town (Sentier des Ochres) and some nice restaurants in the town square. Highly recommended!

Located in a small hamlet outside of town. Both hotel and hamlet not on GPS so a good job we arrived early with time to go to the tourist info who directed us. Nice bathroom, double sink but too high for my wife who had to stand on a chair. Shower in bath but no curtain. Expensively renovated old farm house, no air, clean ceramic floors but this caused echoes and noise from other rooms. Clean, nicely decorated with large common area where a small breakfast was served. Bread open for all to touch so didn't like it when the guy who was coughing all night cut the communal bread with his bare hands. Grounds are nice with pool, free parking and centrally located for touring.

We stayed at Mas Destonge during our honeymoon. After leaving early from a very bad place in Isle-sur-la Sorgue, Mas Destonge thankfully had availability at the last minute for 4 nights. We stayed in the cottage that has a kitchen and living room, along with a washer. We loved our accommodations and could not have been happier. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful in planning our daily trips to vineyards and markets. The room was comfortable and the grounds are very well landscaped. It is truly a peaceful place to stay. It is also very conveniently located between Gordes and Roussillon. The pool was nice during the hot Provence afternoons. Breakfast was very good with terrific croissants, fresh fruit, jams, and yogurt. We cannot thank Mas Destonge enough. They saved our honeymoon!
