An idyllic Provence getaway, ideal for two couples; Le Mazet is a wonderful 18th century stone Mas on the outskirts of Bonnieux in the Luberon National Park. Lovingly restored to a high standard, the property is set in over two acres of land and enjoys magnificent views of the surrounding vineyards, lavender fields, orchards and olive groves. The light, spacious interior has traditional exposed stone walls and stone floors.
Your nearest town is Bonnieux, one of the many historic hilltop villages in the region. Dating back to Roman times, it is set on a plateau overlooking the Calavon valley and Mount Ventoux 25 miles to the north. You will find bakeries, a small grocery store, a pharmacy and a local weekly market here: with its attractive buildings and pretty fountains it is a lovely place to stroll around, maybe stopping off at a pavement cafe for a drink while deciding which restaurant to dine at later!
Just 6 miles away is Apt, a bustling town known for its fruit, lavender, truffles, its colourful Saturday market and attractive old town. You will find some good restaurants here too. Slightly further afield but still only a relatively short drive are Avignon and Aix en Provence, both of which would make wonderful day trips from this idyllic Provence getaway.
