Mas des Amis is a lovely house in a really good location relating to the village (Roussillon) centre. Whilst reflecting a typical Provencal house it also had the added bonus of being a new build which benefitted from air conditioning and modern bathrooms and plumbing. On the basis you have specifically asked for areas of improvement and on the basis these are very minor issues; we would note that we felt that the kitchen accessories, crockery and cutlery etc., whilst acceptable could have been better. However, in terms of overall rating we would still give the property 5 out of 5 stars. As such we would clearly recommend Mas des Amis to others.

Situated in the Luberon, at the foot of the Monts de Vaucluse, the village of Roussillon is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
It is considered one of the most impressive villages in France - Roussillon is one of the "must-sees" in the Luberon, and is well worth a detour.
Roussillon - Ocres hills. Situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries. The red, yellow and brown shades of the earth form a striking contrast with the lush green pinetrees. The vivid blue of the Provençal sky and the exceptional quality of light make this a magical site.
Roussillon - Ochre Facades. It is like an artist's pallet, with the infinite combinations of colours varying from yellow to purple with all the shades of pink and red inbetween. Situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries.
Roussillon - City hall. You will become acquainted with Roussillon's unique natural history while walking along the ochre pathways. You can also learn about how the ochre is treated and used in the building industry by visiting the "Conservatoire des Ocres et des Pigments Appliqués", situated in an old ochre factory. Most impressive!
Roussillon - Inn. As soon as you arrive in the village of Roussillon, you will be charmed by its atmosphere. Take the time to stroll around the picturesque maze of streets and squares.

From the base of the village to the summit of the Castrum and its splendid view, Roussillon is a delightful place to visit!
