A large authentic Mas from the 18th century built into the rocks, its spring, its big plane tree, its square courtyard, its dry-stone walls, its surrounding vineyards and an exceptional view of the Dentelles de Montmirail that one can admire from swimming pool will seduce amateurs of authenticity in quest of well-being and serenity.
The holiday cottage for 8-10 persons with an open fire place and private swimming pool, has been restored in an original and sophisticated spirit letting original rock appear in the rooms.

4 out of 5
The area is exquisitely beautiful, and the house well-located.
Areas for improvement:
Downstairs shower drain (adjacent to two bedroom doors) was consistently smelly despite the application of drain cleaner. The garden could also do with a tidy and some weeding and cutting-back, and the furnishings with some renewal. The place is cosy as opposed to luxurious.
We would certainly recommend Les Beaumes, subject to someone not being unduly troubled by the above points (we weren’t). The location is lovely and the person who looks after it is extremely helpful and efficient.
Only Provence seemed fine, although our contact was limited to identifying where to stay, paying and then getting there. But the information we were given regarding whom to contact on arrival was extremely out of date: the person we were telephoning and texting had ceased employment last year. Her successor (whose name and number we were also given as an alternate, fortunately) assured us that Only Provence had been made aware of this and I am persuaded that she is correct.
