“Mas is More!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had a lovely few days at this charming estate. I agree with a few reviews that maintenance is slipping but we are talking about a lot of old structures here! The rooms were excellent as far as ours went, we had a double, loft style room with a nice terrace. Lovely views of the surrounding landscape and the room was very modern with updated linens, stone work, bath facilities and lighting. For the price, this was an excellent find, very peaceful, quiet and relaxing.

The staff was very polite and friendly, always accommodating. The pool was great and many of the reasons we prefer to vacation in Europe; sans all the "rules" that come with most other establishments. I spent hours diving and playing with the children while other guests lounged, smoked, drank and were not bothered by our fun.

We loved the three dogs paroling the property day and night mostly minding their own business and the housekeeping was very efficient yet unobtrusive.

Room Tip: From what we hear, the upgraded rooms are worth it!

An excellent place to relax. Hotel surrounded by beautiful country. Lovely views. Beautifully renovated and converted, with lovely grounds. Excellent food. Very helpful staff. Would thoroughly recommend. We had a terrace room - more expensive but better. (This gave a terrace on one side and a balcony on the other, so one could always choose sun or shade). The one snag was the sloping ceiling over one side of the bed - we both bumped our heads several times. The Luberon is a lovely area - good for walking and beautiful villages nearby. The pool looked very inviting, but the weather was not hot enough for us actually to try the temperature!

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are better.

Hotel is in a nice setting, but maintenance is starting to slip. Dinner was a bit overpriced. Price of room fluctuates a lot according to demand. If it's pricey, go elsewhere. Also, if you're winetasting, avoid Chateau Blanc near Roussillon. We've tasted at about a thousand wineries in 15 countries and this was the first one to genuinely make us feel unwelcome. The older lady pouring either dislikes Anglophones, her job, life, or all three. On the other hand, wineries we visited in Menerbes were very welcoming.

Ok dinner but nothing spectacular. Fresh home cooked style but at 28 Euros, it was so over priced compared to the fabulous menu we had at L'arome. Best give breakfast a miss. Bed was uncomfortable. My husband could not sleep well... Location good, garden was lovely (even the parking had lovely lavender pots) and the staff was friendly but should do better on food and bed !

Room Tip: room not facing the afternoon sun. Rooms get quite hot....
