“A true Provence experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

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

We were refered the first time in 2006 to this charming true provencal bed and breakfast. This time, in September 2011 we came back with good friends. Hotel is larger in number of rooms and quality. Spacious and authentic. Easy access and close to restaurants and stores, very important for us. Robert and Christiane are always there to assist. We are very grateful for their warm reception and good advise throughout our stay in this beautiful part of the French luberon. We recomend Mas Destonge, an excellent choice for those looking for good value!!!

Relaxing romantic bed and breakfast in the heart of beautiful Provence.
My girl friend loved the large tub.
Owner, Christian, was very friendly and helpful, booking wonderful restaurants and recommending places to visit.
Breakfast was fresh croissants, local jams, yogurt and fresh fruits.

If you are considering a stop in Roussillon and will have a car, skip the snore of a downtown scene and stay outside of town at the Mas Destonge. The buildings, garden and pool were lovely. The hosts were welcoming and did their best to communicate with us in English and put up with our broken French. The room was spacious and overall the place felt very comfortable and homey. Breakfast was lovely - homemade jams and yogurts, fresh pastries, fruit, etc. Overall a very nice stay. Great tip for dinner - check out the nearby Le Petite E'cole restaurant for dinner in Le Chene (abt 5 mins away). So great!

We enjoyed a very peaceful trip to Mas Destonge with our young children in August this year. I had booked this B&B after reading other reviews by people with children so I was hoping that it would not be a problem.
We were offered a larger room than we were booked which was a very good size for the price. Slightly disconcerting ladder up to the mezzanine area which was a bit of a worry with our young children (1y and 4y) but after a couple of days they learnt not to go up alone!
Unfortunately it was very hot for our first couple of nights and with no a/c (not particularly standard in France of course), it was a bit uncomfortable. When the days cooled down though it was perfect.
Breakfast was delicious, especially the home made yoghurt and jam. We were made to feel very welcome and even had to practise our French with some of the other guests which made for a more authentic french holiday.
The swimming pool was not heated but that was not a problem as it was so warm.
Christiane was extremely helpful with her advice on day trips and what to do with the children. We only had 3 days really and everything she suggested was spot on.
Overall, we had a lovely time at Mas Destonge.

This charming "chambre d'hôte" is perfectly located in the heart of the Luberon, an ideal base camp to explore the picturesque villages and attractions nearby. The hosts are very friendly, you really feel at home. The rooms are nicely decorated and the swimming-pool very appealing. Last but not least, Christiane is the right person to ask : "Where should we go for dinner tonight ?", we were never disappointed following her advises. We will definitely come back.

This B&B is located in the middle of Provence. The owners are extremely nice and speak both English (wife) and French (This is/was important for us)... They were very helpful in assisting us on where we should go, making dinner reservations, etc. The rooms are very nice and very clean...The price is great and you are very close to other hotels that are much more expensive....The breakfasts were also great.... We highly recommend it.,
