This area of the Luberon is really worthwhile visiting. Within easy driving distance of each other, the ancient hilltop villages of Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Menerbes and Goult seduce and charm those who are lucky enough to stumble across them. Sitting atop its ochre cliffs, looking out over the surrounding vineyards, orchards and olive groves, the spectacularly coloured village of Roussillon and its surrounds are a perfect base to explore Provence or simply to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the Provencale countryside.
Mas des Ocres, an 18th century farmhouse, has been beautifully and sympathetically renovated by the English owners using traditional Roussillon stone, exposed, lime washed beams, walls rendered using traditional methods and colours and stone flooring. The old, thick, stone walls keep the house cool in summer and with high quality fittings and furnishings and wonderful amenities throughout, Mas des Ocres is perfect for a memorable family or multi person/family holiday.
Built over several levels, the double front door is up a flight of steps from the landscaped drive. Off the impressive hall is the well designed and fully equipped kitchen which in turn has access to the wrap around terrace with a large dining and seating area. One of the bedrooms also opens onto this terrace, and is ideal for grandparents or guests, allowing them privacy from the main upstairs bedroom floor.
