About The Owner

We live in the south east of England.

France has always been a special holiday destination for us, offering beautiful and varied countryside and within easy access of the UK. So we took the plunge in 2012.

It took a few months of hard work to renovate. It was worth it.

We love the house and garden as do our family and friends. We wish we could spend longer periods in this region.

Thank you for taking time to view of home.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2012

Why The Owner chose Isle-sur-la-Sorgue area

Le Mas Guillaume enjoys glorious views of the Vaucluse hills from the terrace. For us, sundowners in the garden, the glorious garden, make it rather special location. We always are amazed at the magnificent night skies.

The area has many good leisure options, walking, golf and cycling. Fishing and canoeing, too.

As we love the outdoors, so this was a perfect choice of properties.

The Luberon National Park offers stunning walking. La Sorgue is stunning.

The property is tranquil, not isolated with easy access to nearby villages and towns.

The coast is approximately an hour's drive from the house.

Recently we visited Pont du Gard, a stunning ancient Roman aqueduct. Well worth a visit.

What makes this villa unique

The house is conveniently located to the town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue, a 5 minute drive, good shopping, great restaurants, too.

The Luberon villages are within easy reach, Menerbes, Gordes, Goult to name a few.

Le Mas Guillaume is great for families with children or teenagers, offering privacy with lovely outdoor areas. Good security and a tastefully fenced pool area.

We are fortunate to have a good manager who endeavours to make this a special holiday for our guests

Easy access for wheelchair users.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to thank you for our stay so far. The house is magnificent, the gifts a delight and we've had one whole day en famille ( the pool has been a great source of entertainment as has the volleyball).

Everything you could wish for!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Le Mas Guillaume in the early autumn. It is a wonderful property in a beautiful area. The house, a restored old farmhouse, which the owners have decorated and equipped to the highest standard, comfortably accommodated our party of 6 adults, 2 young kids and a baby. Our BBQ’s on the terrace were all the better for the lovely views of the golden cliffs of the nearby Vaucluse mountains as the sun set. The garden is perfect for kids – there is a lovely formal garden with lawn directly in front of the terrace, ideal for the kids to play whilst we chilled on the terrace. The salt water pool is surrounded by an extensive grassed area and is securely separated from the house, terrace and formal garden. We didn’t make use of the pool heating as it was (just about) warm enough not to need it, but the option is there should it be required. We spent most of our time enjoying ourselves at the house and in the nearby area - there are lovely easy walks along the canal (and much more demanding ones in the mountains nearly) – but not far off are some beautiful Luberon villages, excellent vineyards and good restaurants. Patricia and Douglas were very accessible and helpful and made us feel like real guests. Their manager, Elayne, was also most helpful. I would highly recommend this property for families; it provides everything you could wish for - for all age groups!

EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Mas Guillaume and without hesitation say that it is the highest standard rental accommodation that we have ever used in Europe. The owners have made every effort to ensure that every room is delightfully furnished and decorated. There is a delightful combination of traditional French styles with modern touches and comforts.

The kitchen is well equipped and had all the utensils we needed for self-catering and a large supply of china, glass and cutlery. Top marks for sharp kitchen knives! (Unusual in a rented house)

We were a group of 6 adults and we used the outside bedroom with access to the pool and it was perfect for us to enjoy a quiet early morning swim without disturbing anyone else.

Patricia and Douglas are thoughtful homeowners and the chilled Luberon wine awaiting our arrival was most welcome. It was also good to find adequate supplies of soaps etc. in the well-appointed bath/shower rooms.

We particularly enjoyed the sun terrace with comfortable lounge furniture and shaded by vines – delightful! We were lucky to have very warm dry weather at the end of September and this made our holiday perfect. The sightseeing in the region is so varied and interesting. Small village cafes and restaurants were abundant and always of a high standard at a reasonable price.

We hope to return again!

Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay. We knew the house looked and sounded very special but it exceeded our expectations. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly ever need and more. The grounds and swimming pool were lovely, even at the end of the summer season. Our 2 year old twins loved the swimming pool and spent many a happy hour romping around the gardens. For us (a family with young children), it was utterly safe and secure - which in a holiday rental, can be hard to find (near-on impossible). The surrounding area is fascinating with so many great places to visit and the information provided by the owners helped immensely in choosing where to visit and eat out.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and caring to our needs and made us feel like true guests - not just customers. Our welcome present was a really lovely touch and very much enjoyed once the children were in bed on the night of our arrival!

Out of all the French / Italian villas we have stayed in, this is the only one we'd love to return to.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, spacious, generous house where we enjoyed the most relaxing of holidays. It is beautifully designed and decorated, well-stocked, and spotlessly clean. It accommodated our many different needs and the owners could not have been more helpful.

It is situated in a beautiful part of France and the nearby local town is charming, has good cafes and restaurants, and a big Sunday market which is well worth a visit. There is kayaking on the river for those wanting more than the pool!

Owner's Response: I've taken the liberty of adding Mick's remaining comments which somehow were lost. ...the Vaucluse suite gives just the right amount of privacy and luxury. Plenty of things nearby to see and do for all ages. Ideal place for friends and large family groups. We had a fantastic three weeks and would love to come back again Mick, it is great that you had such fun and enjoyed the great leisure activities nearby. The house seemed perfect for your guests. Fantastic! We would love to see you again. Patricia and Douglas.

Fabulous family holiday property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property with our family which included 3 small boys aged 3 and under. The owner, Patricia, had been very helpful in corresponding prior to our holiday. On arrival after a short drive from Avignon airport we found the property to be clean and very well furnished. The cot and 2 high chairs were there for us as requested.

The house is situated on a very quiet road and is therefore in a very private location. There was ample secure parking for our 3 cars.

The house was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, particularly in the kitchen.

The outside space was much appreciated by all of the family, and we made good use of the gas BBQ.

The pool is surrounded by an extensive grassed area which is securely separated from the house, patio and formal garden. Our grandsons made very good use of all of the outside toys particularly the paddling pool and the tractor and trailer. We found the property to be a very safe environment for toddlers.

The house is ideally placed for visiting the nearby beautiful villages by car and we enjoyed using the 2 bicycles to cycle the 2 kilometres for our croissants each morning.

We would highly recommend canoeing on the local river which is walking distance from the house. We also visited the coast for a day which was an easy 90 minute drive from the property.

I would highly recommend this property for families, it provides everything you could wish for - for all age groups! It is a wonderful property in a beautiful area.

We hope to return in the near future!!!
