The house is large and wonderfully bright, with modern decoration chosen carefully in contrast with the old stones and beams. Large windows open onto a sunny terrace, beautifully melding the interior and exterior spaces into one.
A modern and fully equipped kitchen is located in the center of the home, surrounded by the large dining space and living room areas. A ground floor bedroom plus four rooms on the second floor each offer ample space for guests to relax.
A separate "Maison des Amis" is located directly next to the main house and offers a sixth bedroom with private bath.
Outdoors, gorgeously manicured garden spaces surround the property, with the swimming pool tucked within and secured by a fence and electric cover. Children can play safely here for hours, while adults enjoy the many comfortable seating areas.
The countryside surrounding this property is perhaps best known for its vineyards, lavender and cherry trees, as well as its famous hilltop villages. Guests here are just minutes from the famous villages of Roussillon, Gordes, Goult and Saint Saturnin, each with the very best restaurants and open air markets of the region.
Whether spending long languid days poolside, or exploring these renowned villages, you will truly find the best of Provence here at Mas de Melusine.

Mas de Melusine is set in the Gordes / Roussillon countryside, about 5 minutes' drive from the villages and within easy reach of the villages of the Lubéron so adored by travel writers - among them Ménerbes, Lacoste, Goult, Bonnieux and Roussillon. Beaumettes and Coustellet, small villages with a variety of shops, are less than ten minutes by car. The property is likewise well located for excursions beyond the Lubéron. Aix-en-Provence lies to the south, the Cotes du Rhone wine-producing region to the north, and the villages and restaurants of the Alpilles region to the southwest. The historic town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, once a center of the Provençal silk trade and now home to more than 200 antiques dealers and Provence's best-known open-air market, is a drive of less than 15 minutes, is the center outside Paris of antiques dealing.
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.

The small winding roads bordered with dry stone walls, and the beautiful provencal landscape. Riding bikes (electric bikes) is a treat in Provence.

Only Provence co-founder Lydia Dean writes about their experiences raising a family, building a business in Provence, and later combining the love of travel with giving back in "Jumping the Picket Fence”. In 2021, she published “Light Through the Cracks,” a continuation of her journey, much of which has been based in Provence. Both books are available Amazon, Amazon.uk, and Amazon.Fr.
