The perfect Luberon escape

We came for a family escape in the Luberon and this was the most perfect retreat. Mas du Figuier is a beautiful stone farmhouse within the most stunning setting and is surrounded by vineyards and lavender fields. The south facing garden is totally secluded and entirely peaceful with beautiful views south of the Luberon hills and a gorgeous pool to relax by. A large fig tree shades the main courtyard and gives a perfect setting for dining. The house is beautifully kept by the owner and has a wonderful family feel to it, and is one of the best houses for a game of hide and seek. Joucas is much quieter than neighbouring villages but has a great restaurant with stunning views and a small shop with essentials. The location was perfect - a peaceful retreat but close enough to the larger Luberon villages nearby. The main problem was that we loved the house and garden so much that we found it difficult to get out to see more of the surrounding areas. We will definitely be coming back.

Beautiful place!

We came with friends to spend a week in the Lubéron. September is just beautiful! A typical Provencal house with pool and lavender fields :) A professional petanque track that we have used a lot. A perfect time to enjoy the pool and to visit this region without too much tourists. We will come back! Thank you to the owners for this beautiful place:)

Beautiful house in Joucas

Mas du Figuier is a beautiful old stone house in a fantastic setting. It is located at the foot of the village of Joucas, surrounded by vineyards and fruit orchards. The property also has a lavender field at the front and rear of the property. The house has a lovely sitting/dining room which opens onto a patio, perfect for al fresco dining. The patio has a lovely and productive fig tree and overlooks the garden, swimming pool and Luberon Hills in the distance. The swimming pool sits above a boules or petanque court which provides endless entertainment whilst enjoying sundowners and taking in the views. The house is perfectly located to explore the major sites in the Luberon, only 10 minutes drive to Gordes and Roussillon, It is a great property for a family to enjoy the delights of Provence!

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings

Le Mas du Figiuer is a lovely old house, really charming, set beautifully at the foot of the village of Joucas, surrounded by lavender fields! The house is in excellent conditions and decorated with taste in local provençal style and is fully equipped with modern appliances. The swimming pool area is enchanting, with a magnificent open view on the Mont Ventoux. The small terrasse for sundowners with a view on Joucas is just amazing. I can only recommend the rental of this property for a family holiday, it is extremely easy and relaxed, even with children as the garden is flat and away from any large roads, therefore very calm too! Small paradise........
