We drove here for long weekend from Switzerland. We loved our stay here and will go back some day! The B&B itself is very peacefully located next to a long vineyard, very private and calm. Perfect for a romantic weekend or simply to relax with friends. It has a nice swimming pool and large garden. The rooms have a balcony, where we loved to try the newly purchased wines with a vineyard view. There is also a small kitchen in case you need to cook something or just have a tea. I must say that the only thing I didn’t like about my room was that it didn’t have enough natural light. However, the weather was so nice that you simply hang around in the balcony, pool or garden. Charles and Andrée were very welcoming, make sure you ask them for tips on what to do and especially where to go for dinner, they will happily make a reservation for you on an amazing local restaurant. We also did the wine tour with Charles, which we strongly advise. He is very knowledgeable and honest and drives you around local vineyards where you get to know the most popular Chôte du Rhone wines, but also less known but as good or even better than the famous ones.

Breathtaking view over Ventoux Mount. Comfortable self-catering accommodations. Lots of tourism and visits in Provence. Beautiful landscapes and lavender fields in the Luberon area. These accommodations are located near Avignon, Chateauneuf du Pape. Tour the wine route with us and enjoy unforgettable wine tasting of Cotes du Rhone wines including the prestigious Chateauneuf du Pape. Charles and Andree purchased le Mas (meaning farm in Provencal vernacular) at the end of 1995. The old farm, dating from the XVIIth Century, was nearly a ruin, so they decided to completely renovate it, transforming it into a Bed and Breakfast with self-catering units. By mid-1996, the first two studios, "Ventoux" and "Montmirail", were ready for rental. A crystal clear swimming pool was installed in the winter of 1997, featuring a diatom powder natural filtration system with salt water electrolysis purification. Under the careful eye of Andree, the garden has become a tranquil place with additional flowers attracting birds and cicadas. As more and more guests asked for accommodations at le Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat, two more rooms, "Ouveze" and "Mistral", were added in 1999. Andree, with her architecture and design background has kept updating the decor of the rooms with her exquisite taste. Recently, she has worked on the design for the exterior walls of le Mas. Charles began leading wine tasting tours in 2002 to special wineries, which has delighted many guests and has proven to be popular ! Titus (Lab) and Auguste (American cocker) will welcome you in their very friendly manner.... ... more less
