You are in Provence in the département of the Vaucluse, an area of wide open spaces set against the spectacular back-drop of Mont Ventoux, the valley of the Luberon and the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Be prepared to be seduced and delighted by what this wonderful region has to offer. On a sheltered hill-side, 5 minutes from Vaison La Romaine, you will find le Mas des Abeilles.
|Le Mas des Abeilles looks out over the ever-present Mont Ventoux, the haute vieille-ville of Vaison La Romaine and le château du Comte de Toulouse, with the vineyards, hillsides and woodlands disappearing towards the horizon.
Le Mas des Abeilles perfectly combines tradition and modern comforts. It has been built with respect for time-honoured Provençal methods – lavender-blue volets, ochre walls, traditional roof-tiles, terra-cotta floors and regionally-produced tiling.
The refined interior combines antique and Provençal furnishings to bring modern standards of comfort in an atmosphere of old-world charm.
Breath in provencal aromas in the extensive tree-lined grounds, stroll on the lawn, swim in the pool, bask in the sun or simply lie in the shade and take your ease.
Step back in time in the historic town of Vaison-la-Romaine. Stroll through the streets of the wonderfully preserved Gallo-Roman town, with its spectacular amphitheatre. Wander across the RomanBridgeand climb to the heights of mediaeval Vaison. Stroll through the narrow lanes lined with craft shops and art galleries. Visit the chateau and pause in the cloister of the Roman cathedral of Notre Dame de Nazareth before finally returning to the bustle of the town below to take some well-earned refreshment and watch the world go by in one of the numerous pavement cafés in Place Monfort.
