We’ve had a superb week here. Cool temperatures and frost – and even snow one day – in the mornings but the children managed a (brief) dip in the pool! We had a great walk along the ochre trail in Roussillon. The Lavender Museum was very good value (they give free jigsaw puzzles and certificates to children. Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is well worth a visit – lots of high end antique stores and design shops. We went to the vineyard at Chateau Canorgues as featured in the movie ‘A Good Year’. We like the Moulin du Clos des Jeannons at Gordes, a working olive oil factory with a good store. Too many good meals to mention but we discovered Restaurant la Parte in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, L’Estaminet in Gordes is very good and always open, Les Terrasses in Bonnieux
pretty good as well. All-in-all a wonderful break.

A wonderful week in a wonderful house! You have done a fabulous job, Nick and Rosemary, of creating a real home from home – only upgraded quite a few notches! The house and garden are truly gorgeous and the view from the dining table will remain in my memory over the cold, dreary months that come in England! We have all thoroughly enjoyed our week and I look forward to visiting again soon. With thanks and best wishes.

Thank you for a wonderful week in the Luberon – the Little House was perfect for us and our little ones. Are second visited to the area eight was just as lovely as we remembered. Managed evening drinks in many of the gorgeous surrounding villages, but most notably Goult, Bonnieux and Lourmarin. Hope to return again one day to sample yet more delights of the area.
Alex, Sarah, Otis, Esme & Bea – London, UK
An incredible week of cycling, eating, drinking fabulous wine, kicking back, and relaxing. The Mas was the perfect place to be. The pool was perfect for the unusually hot weather. And the
fans – well, we cannot thank you enough – they saved our sleeps and were very much appreciated! What an idyllic setting for a stay in beautiful Provence! Thank you Nick & Rosemary!
Tricia, John, Hannah, Elpsy & Eva – British Columbia, Canada
We had a wonderful stay here and we wish to come again. Provence is one of the most beautiful places and this villa was just amazing. Everybody absolutely loved swimming in the pool and the garden was fantastic. We loved playing board games and the cats were adorable. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
Sienna (age 6) – Also staying: Alexis, Lucie, Sean & Nat – Sydney, Australia
What a fab time we have had! Perfect house, perfect weather, perfect company. Totally enjoyed the house, and the area, which are new to us. We’ll be back! Roussillon is lovely, if a little busy in August. Apt is good for alternative supermarkets. Sault is an adventure, but the market well worth it. Check out Cassis – fabulous! And, Pont du Gard. Lovely holiday and perfect hosts!
Vikki & Richard – Wales, UK
Thank you for our wonderful stay in the Little House. It is so peaceful here and a fantastic location for discovering Provence. We loved the hilltop villages, especially Gordes and Bonnieux
(great market on a Friday). We will definitely be recommending Mas De Rosemarie to others!

Wonderful stay – hope to come back!
The Reynolds Family – Brisbane, Australia
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The house was such an opulent place to stay for two weeks. The size of the house meant that our family of three adults and two children were able to spread out and find their own space. The gardens and pool were immaculate and our children had a wonderful time swimming. We explored Provence, from the Gorge de Verdun, Mont Ventoux, to Arles and the Camargue, and everything in between. We have fallen in love with Provence – it is the most beautiful place! However far we explored, we always felt that every day we came back to the best part of Provence. Nick and Rosemary, you certainly have a gem of a place here!
Sarah, Jack, Pat, Ella Lee & Caryl – Adelaide, Australia
We had a truly wonderful holiday in a little oasis of peace and tranquillity under the Provencal sun! Excellent eating and drinking – Café de la Poste in Goult is a must for lunch, and the Domaine de Mairie’s wine is particularly good. A rhythm of life to be savoured – many many thanks Nick and Rosemary for your hospitality. A bientot!
Roger & Jackie – Bedfordshire, UK
A week in Provence – had a great time, very relaxing here at the Mas. Hope to return some day.

What a great property in the beautiful Luberon. We had a wonderful time and thank you for everything.
Summer, John, Sydney & Silvia – London, UK
What a perfect place for a family holiday! The entire gang had a lovely week in this beautiful house and yard, including bracing plunges into the pool and lots of play on the lawn. Perfect for three-year-old Otis and eight eight-month old Artie. On various outings we took in the spectaculars setting of the Luberon. We look forward to a repeat visit to Mas De Rosemarie. Save us a week or two next March!
John, Elaine, Nora, Tom, Otis & Artie – Wilson, Wyoming, USA
The end of a fantastic week at Le Mas De Rosemarie in our “Little House”. The grounds and surrounding countryside are stunning. Good food and drink throughout our stay, but the piece de resistance has to be Le Carillon Restaurant in Goult which was “unbelievable” and a superb finale to our wonderful holiday. Hopefully, we would like to come back some time.
Alan, Eddie, Moira, & Evelyn – “Bonnie Scotland”
Thanks for a magical stay in Provence! We loved our cosy villa, the fountain, the pool, the cats, and the many drawings that sprung from our imagination. As our bellies grew full and our hearts grew happy (or is it bellies grew happy, and hearts grew full) … We hope we can come back soon and jump rope together!
Olivia, Milo, Sigall & Peter – Massachusetts, USA
Great two months with much weather variation. Thanks for your hospitality, friendship and support. You helped us make it feel like home! All the best for the future. Maybe we’ll be back with
the larger family!
Eric & Pauline – Michigan, USA
We have had the most glorious week at the mass. The weather was fabulous – a week of summer in April, the scenery is spectacular, and the food and wine…Thank you so much for arranging such comfortable, yet stylish surroundings and taking the trouble to put together such useful information in the notebook. We did everything you suggested.
Brian, Mary Ann, Phil, Michele & Andrea – Boston, USA
We had a wonderful time staying at the Bastide and we will definitely recommend it to our friends. Thank you again for such a comfortable stay.
