Pin this Villa
Mas des Figuiers is a charming private property nestled in the Luberon valley with incredible views.

The authentic stone farmhouse has recently been restored and tastefully decorated. Clean lines and light, and airy rooms defy the history of the building.

The house comprises of a beautiful fully equipped kitchen, dining and sitting room on the ground floor, along with a small bedroom with double bed and bathroom. On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom.

There are several terraces, all quite relaxing, with different views and atmospheres. The two famous hilltop villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste are seen from the beautiful views of the house.

The dining place located under the linden tree is quite alluring, and the landscaped garden adds much to the beauty of the property.

Enjoy the comfort and sophistication of the interiors, as well as the beautiful, peaceful and natural landscape with quiet corners to enjoy a book.

Because of a pond set on the land and safety concerns, the house is not fit for children under 12. Tennis lovers will enjoy the newly built private tennis court.

Mas des Figuiers is also particularly appealing to nature lovers, cyclists and wine and food enthusiasts.

Locale

Centrally located in the rolling hills of the Luberon Mountains near Lacoste and Bonnieux - An ideal location for hikes, walks, cycling, touring or just relaxing.

The famous château belonging to the Marquis de Sade is situated in Lacoste. In 1771 the Marquis fled from Paris to escape the scandals created by his erotic writing and outlandish behaviour (too liberal for the era). He came to Lacoste and sought refuge in the château which belonged to his grandfather. This huge 11th century château, partly in ruins, belonged to a professor who has been restoring it for more than 30 years. Today the château belongs to M. Pierre Cardin, the famous fashion designer.

The château de Sade is not the only discovery to be made at Lacoste. The village has charming narrow streets, paved in "calade" stone and wandering around is a pleasant way to pass the time.

You will come across beautiful old stone houses, some of which are being restored.

Most are made from ochre, limestone and amateur geologists and history lovers will find it difficult to leave this engaging place.

No matter what route you take to Bonnieux, you will see the church tower well before you arrive. At a height of 425m, the tower dominates the countryside and the surroundings of this magnificent village, situated in the Luberon.

Bonnieux - Church

Built on a plateau above the valley, Bonnieux is one of the finest villages in the area. The houses spread out on the hill-side form a striking harmony of earth-toned colours and shapes.

Bonnieux - Calade

Some superb residences dating back to the 16th, 17th, and 18th century serve as a reminder that Bonnieux was a wealthy village when this region, the Comtat Venaissin, belonged to the Popes.

Bonnieux - Vaulted door

Several bishops also chose to live here and as you wander through the village streets you will no doubt marvel at the architecture and history on display.

Bonnieux - Cedars

After having climbed 86 stone steps to the "Vieille Eglise" and the old cedar trees,you will discover a beautiful view of the Monts du Vaucluse, and the villages of Gordes and Roussillon. You can also admire the vast plains planted with grape vines (Cotes du Luberon), lavender, cereals and fruit trees - just as the impressionists painted them!

Bonnieux - Restaurant

Don't leave Bonnieux without visiting the Boulangerie Musueum where you will see a collection of bread and learn plenty about its history and manufacture.

All this will certainly whet your appetite - but don't worry, Bonnieux has some excellent restaurants, complete with charming terraces.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
