Nestled in the Luberon countryside, the Mas des Chenes is a beautiful 18th century mas (French farmhouse) situated near the lovely old village of Lacoste and a short distance from the charming village of Menerbes in the Parc Naturel du Luberon area of Provence. The village of Lacoste, 1km away has cafes and restaurants and beautiful views across the valley. Nearby Menerbes just 5km from the house has a wider choice of shops and restaurants, a boulangerie and a small weekly market.
A delightful holiday retreat to just be "at home", the Mas des Chenes is also perfectly located for exploring the lovely Luberon valley with its pretty perched villages or for venturing further afar for visits to Avignon, Aix en Provence, St. Remy and Arles. There are some excellent local vignerons producing Cotes de Ventoux and Cotes du Luberon wines, buzzing village markets and lovely countryside strolls on your doorstep.
