Le Mas del Sol
Ranked #3 of 15 Bonnieux B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Fantastic, relaxing place. Nearby Bonnieux has some of the best restaurants we've ever eaten in, and we're from New York! The family who owns Le Mas del Sol are wonderful, speak English, and cook a great breakfast.

Loved our stay. Travelled with our 2 year old daughter and found the family room (2 actual rooms) huge and very comfortable.

Loved the breakfasts, the pool and overlooking the vineyards and lavender fields from our room.

A shame it was a bit too cool to enjoy the pool!

Would definitely recommend to others.

We stayed 4 nights at the Mas del sol and we really had wanted to find a place from where we could discover most of the Luberon in a relatively short time. Le mas del sol proved to be the best choice. It is not more than 20-30 minutes away from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue on the west or le Colorado provençal on the east. Some of the famous villages are even closer, like Ménèrbes, Lacoste or Gordes. The house itself is gorgeous, with great views to the nearby villages. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean, the breakfast plentiful. The young owners, Lucine and Richard, have just the perfect balance between being friendly, helpful and being "invisible". A really good choice for everybody.

If you would like to have a perfect vacation in Provence, the best place to stay is Le Mas del Sol bed and breakfast. It is located a few kilometers from Bonnieux, which is one of most beautiful medieval villages in Luberon. The house of Mas de Sol looks as a mix of old and new; and it has an absolutely picturesque location between vineyards on one side and mountains with medieval villages, churches, castles on the others. The admirers of Marquis De Sad will have a pleasure of seeing the ruins of his castle at sunrise and sunset. In fact, all 360 degree views from grounds of Mas de Sol are stunning and continuously changing with passing light and clouds through the day.
We stayed for four days in October in Tonneau room (which is actually a suite with bedroom and living room). It has all contemporary amenities of a luxury hotel and a French country feel. Our bathroom had both large shower and large bathtub; and there was even a second separate restroom. Plenty of drawers; all is spotlessly clean. Our windows and private terrace were facing vineyards and view of Mt Ventoux across the river valley.
The owners of bed and breakfast, Lucine and Richard, are very nice and hospitable; they are fluent in English; and communication with them is easy and quite pleasant.
One of the greatest features of this place is a swimming pool with salty water and excellent views of surrounding area. Another great feature of this B/B is a large terrace with tables, refrigerator and tea-coffee facilities covered area where you could fix yourselves a snack or a light dinner. Given the farmer markets in Bonnieux, Apt, etc (Lucine posts the name of market town for each day at her front desk) who would need the restaurants. Another convenience that I also would like to mention is a Mas del Sol strategic location and an easy access to main road and all other small villages and towns of Luberon.

This was the best accommodation we stayed at on our trip to Italy and France and we were very happy with all the places we had booked but this accommodation is very special .The hosts Richard and Lucine are great and very helpful.
The property is lovely ,the pool is great and we loved our room.we hope to go back in the next 2 years and stay longer.
Bonnieux is a wonderful village and short driving distance to many historical sights.Only 50 klms to Avignon,Orange ,we were only there 4 days and it wasn't long enough there is a lot to see.Hope to be back soon

We stayed two nights and it was heaven. Location is in incredible. The pool is gorgeous - lovely location, well maintained and a pleasure to swim in. Our room was lovely, bed huge and comfortable, lots of towels and great facilities. Richard and Lucine are fantastic hosts, attentive without being intrusive. The breakfast is generous and delicious. The really great thing is the terrace set up - you have your own shelf in the fridge and a basket for your food, and you can make your own dinner using the outdoor facilities and sit on the terrace to eat your baguette and cheese and enjoy the wonderful view. It's a perfect balance of B&B and self-cater, particularly good if you don't want to eat out every night, or no one wants to be the designated driver! Perfect in every way.

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 2 nights in late August. We didn't want to leave! The location of the property is fantastic for exploring the surrounding Luberon villages with Bonnieux a couple of minutes drive away and Lacoste just up the hill.

The property itself is just gorgeous, a farmhouse set amongst the vines lovingly restored and furnished and decorated with thought and style. The setting for the swimming is absolutely stunning and the pool itself is immaculate!

Our bedroom was large and the bed was big and comfortable! Lovely Occitane products to use in the bathroom. Everything was impeccably clean. A real bonus was being able to use the outdoor kitchen area in the evenings- we had a wonderful picnic overlooking the pool and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The owners were lovely and the breakfast was scrummy with homemade pancakes and homemade natural yogurt on offer with cereals, croissants and jams etc. Unforgettable place, definitely want to return one day!
