Dear Helena



Just to say many thanks for allowing us to stay the extra night, it made all the difference to my partner.



We all had such a wonderful time there and concluded the holiday with a fabulous meal made by Ronald - a great way for my mum to celebrate her 70th birthday. So many thanks for all your help and advice. If you need any recommendations for your website I would be happy to provide.



Kind regards Kirsten

Lovely home with spectacular gardens to relax and take in the smells and sounds of Provence

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to celebrate my 50th birthday. My immediate family was coming in from around the world, and this included several children, so it was important to rent a property with plenty of things for the kids to do. This property did not disappoint. The gardens/grounds seemed endless and are very tastefully designed. There is a boule (pentak) court for the competitive among you; a large spectacular swimming pool in which many a team volleyball game was played; a trampoline (major plus for my nieces); and a pizza oven (we put the kids to work and fired it up for a soiree one evening). There are several areas in which you can sit back, relax and eat your gourmet treats from the local markets. A long family table just outside the kitchen, a summer kitchen by the pool, and a table under cover in the barn/garage. The outdoor furniture was plenty - chaise lounges everywhere and also many other seating options. The quality of the furniture was fantastic. The house is large enough for 14 people without everyone getting on each others nerves. In fact there was an extra bed in the laundry which could've been used and accommodated another 2 people.

The home itself has all the facilities needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking tools/implements as well as essentials for cooking salt/pepper/oil, etc. There is a room with a TV for those who feel they must waste their vacation watching the box. I was glad it was the smaller room, so you essentially had to be antisocial to watch it - we are in Provence after all so should be out seeing/smelling/feeling. There are several large bedrooms. I took the master and can attest to a very comfortable bed (not commonly found in Europe). Was soft and welcoming. There are 2 main bathrooms upstairs and one downstairs. We tended to run out of hot water if you were the back end of the showering list (I was). But that served as incentive on other days to get up early and take the hot water. Advice: schedule some in the evening and some in the morning if a large crowd.

The home has a washer/dryer which worked well; a refrigerator in the kitchen with a separate small freezer which is in the laundry; and a dishwasher (used a lot). There is wifi at the home, best signals were around the table outside the kitchen.

All in all this was a fabulous week for the celebration. My entire family loved the property and had a fantastic time in the region. I appreciate Helena sharing her home with us all

Wonderful stay in this beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in the house last august and we had a wonderful moment.

The house is beautiful, very spacious and decorated with a lot of taste.

The bedrooms are great and the beds are very good. The kitchen is the best for people who like to cook.

The garden is beautiful and the pool place is paradise.

The kids were so happy as the house is so friendly for them : the big playground, the trampoline, the very safe pool and a room dedicated to them in the house with lots of toys.

We also appreciated a lot the fresh bottle of Rosé wine we found when arriving as a welcome present.

All is made in the house to make you have a wonderful stay.

Congratulations to Helena for making a place so peaceful and beautiful.

Wonderful property, perfect family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Our Australian family of three generations enjoyed the best vacation at Mas de Palassas, a beautifully maintained and very comfortable property. The house has been equipped generously and to a very high standard – furnishings, linens and towels, beds, kitchen utensils, electrical items. It was even better than described!

The manager was extremely helpful, always available to answer any queries. The information folder has all the details for which one could wish about local sights, restaurants, activities, shopping, and amenities. The property is very safe for children: internal stairs can be gated, the grounds are secured with fencing and electric gates, and the pool is securely fenced.

Everything was perfect: for the cooks among us – the kitchen, pizza oven, barbecue; for the children – the play areas, books, games; for the active – the pool, the Petanque court, local walks; for the slothful – the gardens, nooks to hide with a book, lounges for sprawling, gazing at the view; for all of us – the chance to have a terrific time together.

The daybreak excursions to Bonnieux for baguettes, croissants; mornings to a market, a vineyard; trips to Marseilles, Orange, Aix en Provence; afternoons by the pool; evenings dining al fresco under the stars; the tranquillity and the silence. Wonderful!

We definitely recommend Mas de Palassas to friends, and look forward very much to returning, for at least two weeks, to relax at the beautiful Mas de Palassas, and enjoy again this lovely part of France.

A wonderful week at Mas Palassas!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a fantastic week at Mas Palassas!

The home is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. The location is perfect for touring the gorgeous provence countryside. We really enjoyed sight seeing in the mornings and coming back to Mas Palassas for a relaxing afternoon by the pool. We even had a big round robin petanque tournament which was a lot of fun for all ages.

The owners are nice and helpful and provided a lot of information about places to visit and restaurants in the area.

I would definitely recommend this gorgeous home to friends and family and I look forward to a return trip in the future....next time it will be for two weeks!
