About the property

Set among the Luberon's picturesque villages, there's plenty to do and see.

Le Mas des Cades is the perfect house for a family who have decided to enjoy a summer in Provence, relaxing under the pine trees by the pool. It’s situated close to Lourmarin, which is officially one of the most beautiful villages in all of France.

This well-situated farmhouse (‘mas’) is great for a single-family holiday, being not only in the centre of the Luberon area, with its numerous picturesque villages, but also boasting plenty of local outings and activities that the children will love.

A narrow road, Chemin St André, will bring you to the village, with its 18 restaurants, plentiful cafés, a wine bar, 25 boutique shops, and no fewer than 19 galleries and artists’ studios. Unlike many places in France, Lourmarin is alive all year round.

The property itself is in very quiet spot, surrounded by vineyards, fruit trees and an olive grove. The windows, outdoor kitchen, garden and pool are south-facing, but you will find shade among the pine trees and there’s a cosy pergola under which you can drink your glass of chilled rosé when it gets too hot.

You will likely spend most of your time on the front terrace where you’ll have your meals; this shady spot is just in front of kitchen which is fully equipped for you to cook like a top chef.

The house has a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen that many a chef would envy, a shady pool set among pine trees and olive groves that the children will happily play among, and there’s plenty of room to entertain extra guests for lunch or dinner.

In the cool of the evening you may stay in the living room, which is large enough to invite friends over and is good for the kids to watch TV.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has a large kingsize-bed and an en-suite bathroom with bath tub. There are two other bedrooms, ideal for children, which share a bathroom with shower.

We're happy to answer any specific questions you might have about the property before you book. Or please feel fee to visit our website - search rentourhomeinprovence - for detailed info about this and other properties in our portfolio.

Mdme Chauvin and Walther Geiser (agent) were marvellous. We had the best time ever at this lovely house. Pool was lovely and the outside kitchen was a huge bonus. A lovely house, the bikes were great. A 10 minute walk into the village

Lourmarin is the “jewel in the crown” of the Luberon triangle. A very popular destination for tourists, as the old streets, lovely shops and Friday market are quite magnificent. Just wander around and soak up the atmosphere. A marvellous 15th century chateau overlooks the town.

Albert Camus lived in Lourmarin and is buried in the local cemetery. Lourmarin is home to author Peter Mayle, who penned 'A Year in Provence'. There are also plenty of artists in residence, particularly Thierry Marchal and Isirdi. Both have studio galleries near Café Gaby, which is situated on the greatest corner in the world!

Cucuron – A totally unspoilt medieval village with a wonderful square containing a large pond (etang). It is worth walking around to see the bell tower, old tower, church etc. Market day is Tuesday, around the “pond” – very good. La Petite Maison has a Michelin Star. There is also a restaurant called L’Etang which was used for a scene in the film 'A Good Year', starring Russell Crowe. The family-run café next door has good, value-for-money fare, including egg and chips.

Ansouis – This is a 1,000-year-old village like most of them locally, with an ancient church and 12th century chateau (just sold by the De Sabran family after 1,000 years). There is a bakery (boulangerie) just to the left of the top of the main street, which sells lovely fresh baguettes, croissants and pains au chocolat in the morning. The newspaper shop (tabac) at the top of the main street does good coffee and chocolate. You can get English newspapers here after 7am each day. There is an excellent Michelin Star restaurant on the high street – La Closerie. Advance bookings are essential.

Bonnieux – This picturesque village is built on the edge of a cliff on four levels. Visit the ancient church at the top of hill, then descend to all other levels. A lot of French film stars have homes here, which prompted Eduard Loubet to open La Capelongue – a wonderful hotel with a two Michelin Star restaurant, with the most spectacular views from the terrace. It also now has a much cheaper Bistro. Two more excellent restaurants in the centre of town are L’Ârome and Le Fournil.

Lacoste – Just past Bonnieux is the ancient village of Lacoste, where the Marquis de Sade’s castle lies on top of the village. This is now owned, as is most of the village, by Pierre Cardin.

Also drive to Abbaye St Hilare, three miles further on the road to Menerbes – the most peaceful spot on our planet. Go, see and reflect.

Buoux – Go to Fort Buoux if you're feeling energetic. This is a prehistoric, Roman and Medieval fortress. Have a walk; the views are quite magnificent at the top of Mont Ventoux, the hardest climb on the Tour de France.

Menerbes, Gordes, Gault, Rousillion and Oppede – all worth seeing!

L’Isle sur Sorgue – The biggest antique market in the world takes place here every weekend. Take your time to find some gems.

Slightly further afield ...

Aix-en-Provence – A must for any world traveller. Wonderful streets to north of Cours Mirabeau – the main street. You should see the Cathedral and the two other churches at the top of Cours Mirabeau. You should also see the Hotel de Ville, clock tower and university – all built in beautiful yellow stone. Eat out at the oldest café in the South of France, Les Deux Garcons on the Cours Mirabeau.

Marseilles – A truly great city, the oldest in France, founded by the Greeks in the 6th Century BC! Go to the Vieux Port and soak up the atmosphere and eat at one of the cafés in the square to the East of the port – one street back. Visit the Cathedral and Notre Dame de la Garde Church on the hill overlooking the port.

Avignon – There are thousands of places of history and beauty to visit in this area of Gallo-Roman foundation. (We haven’t even covered Palace des Papes, Arles, Nimes and Orange, all with outstanding Roman amphitheatres in wonderful condition and still used today for bull-fights, fêtes, etc.)

Glanum – There is a smaller, truly inspiring site just south of St Remy. This ancient Roman town was only discovered 100 years ago after Vincent van Gogh had painted the site full of olive trees and bushes. It is quite extraordinary as the village dates from the 2nd to 3rd century BC, and the two best kept arches you will ever see are at the entrance, and they date to just before Christ. A truly incredible vista. Go there in the morning and then have lunch in St Remy, the adopted home of Van Gogh.

Cassis – Lovely old fishing ports with good beaches. A bit touristy in high summer, so it can be difficult to park.


Ansouis, Cucuron and Lourmarin have a boulangerie and a basic supermarket. Best for groceries is the Super-U in Puyvert, which has a petrol station. Large supermarkets within 30km are in Pertuis, Apt and Mallemort.

Local morning markets:

• Tues: Cucuron, Tour d’Aigues, Aix, Lourmarin

• Wed: St Remy

• Thur: Roussillon, Aix

• Fri: Lourmarin, Pertuis

• Sat: Apt, Aix

• Sun: Ansouis, St Martin de la Brasque
