We like the simple arrangement of space, the soothing neutral palette, and the subtle but very modern renovations here that transport this former farmhouse into a contemporary country retreat.
Maison Le Mas Saint-Saturnin-lès-Apt, Provence, France
Located in the Luberon valley region of Provence near to some of the last remaining villages unspoiled by time, this newly renovated villa started as a farmhouse with an old barn and is now a chic B&B retreat.
Renovated by the owner, an interior designer, the feel is in keeping with the traditional architecture and flavor of Provence with renewed contemporary style and energy. Traditional in tone, the structure and interiors have kept some of the rustic features and are now paired with modern concrete, vintage modern furnishings and decor and a minimalist aesthetic.
The two-level main house features four complete apartments each with two en suite bedrooms, garden and terrace access and fully equipped self catering kitchens. The restored barn and studio features lofty interiors and is ideal for two. Breakfast is served daily with locally sourced ingredients and specialties.
The gardens are inviting and lush with peaceful lounge areas and a large pool with views across the lavender fields and rolling countryside.
Wifi throughout, flat-screen televisions. Housekeeping and shared laundry facilities. Crib and highchair available upon request with the reservation. Private parking and free use of bicycles is available.
The small off-the-beaten-path village of St Saturnin-lès-Apt sits on the slope of Mount Vaucluse where from the town’s castle you’ll have amazing views over the Luberon. There are great hiking trails accessible directly from the property from where you can also cycle up the Ventoux through the gentle hillsides, vineyards and tiny scenic roads.
Some of the local villages and towns not to be missed include: Gordes, Oppede, Roussillon, Menerbes, Lacoste and Bonnieux along with a few more discrete hidden gems such as Goult, Joucas, Saignon and Lourmarin. Avignon and the charming Uzes and “Pont du Gard” are just a short drive to the west and the Mediterranean sea is just over an hour away.
Luberon, France. Nearest Airport: Marseille Marignane (1 Hour 20 minute drive)
