Pin this Villa
Mas d'Oppède is a large renovated stone farm at the end of a winding dirt track among the vineyards and behind the lavender field. Views from the property extend to the Luberon hills and the Alpilles. Large terraces on different sides of the house are perfect for breakfasts, lunches, aperitifs or dinners in the sun or shade.

Time has gone since the houses in Provence were dark and dull, with low ceilings and narrow windows. The interior of the house is clean, bright and cozy - not what one might guess from stony authenticity of the outside.

The two bedrooms on the ground floor and the Master bedroom on the first floor are air conditioned. Each of the 4 bedrooms has his own en-suite bathroom.

A brand new shopping center has been built in Coustellet, less than 5 minutes’ drive. Close to the famous villages of Ménerbes and Oppède le Vieux.

One of our preferred houses in our collection, a perfect picture of Provence!

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. We hadn't booked through 'Only Provence' before having used other villa companies for this region in the past. We had some concerns about comitting a deposit as we didn't know anything about the company but the service was professional, efficient and property as described. The website photographs were accurate and the villa was of a high quality. We would be more than happy to book through only Provence in the future.

Q. Would you recommend Only Provence to friends or family? If not, why?
R. Yes

Q. What star rating (1-5) would you give this villa? (5 being best)
R. 4

Q. Did your villa meet your expectations? If not, why?
R. No

Q. Why your villa didn't meet your expectations?
R. Availability of bicycles

R. Yes

Q. How were you treated by the property’s staff and manager? (5 being best)
R. 5

Q. How would you rate the cleanliness of the villa? (5 being best)
R. 5

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. We like to spend time outside in the evenings playing cards etc and if it were our property we would improve the outside lighting we needed quite a lot of candles although we were expecting this. There were only three bicycles available and which meant the four people who had intended to cycle couldn't. The fourth bicycle was being repaired and was promided for Tuesday after our arrival but didn't ever appear.
A minor point is the amount of fridge space for a house of this size. most of the properties we stay in have larger fridges or an outside kitchen fridge to fall back on. We like to shop in local markets and cook rathe than eat out every day and with 6 men drinking beer we found it tight for space for fresh food.

Q. Is there anything that needs to be replaced or updated?

Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
R. No

Q. Would you consider staying here again?
R. Yes

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. Lovely villa, beautiful view and great location. Perfect layout for our combination of parents with adult daughters plus their partners.

Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
R. The service was very good apart from delivering the bicycle.

The villa was delightful, characterful and well located for exploring the nearby hilltop villages. We particularly enjoyed the petanque court. It was also a real bonus to have a lavender field right next door. We hope to go back to Mas d Oppede again in the future.

I did not go on the wine tour but those who did said the guides were very knowledgeable and informative and they all learned a great deal from the experience as well as having a fantastic time.

Chef Julien was outstanding and helped to make my son’s 26th birthday very memorable. I marvel at his ability to arrive, cook a gourmet meal in a kitchen he had never seen before then leave the kitchen in a better state than when he arrived.

As for OnlyProvence, I would use one word - efficient. Everything went smoothly, with no hitches. Had we not booked through you we would not have discovered the marvelous chef or the tours. I am grateful to my daughter Rebecca who discovered you and thank you for enabling us to have a marvelous vacation.

The house and setting were lovely. We had a wonderful time, but I do have some ideas for improving the place.
First, a few typed pages about what's nearby (with detailed directions) would have been extremely helpful. A few hours work by someone familiar with the area would have spared us (and all other visitors) a lot of research on where to find a grocery store, a bakery, etc… Second, the people who greeted us spoke limited English, which was charming until we had a plumbing problem that needed to be discussed. Third, there were a lot of bugs in the pool. An extra cleaning during the week (or a pool cover) would have been ideal.

The people we dealt with at OP were lovely, and the house was as promised -- which is the most important factor in our satisfaction!

Great villa. Exactly as billed. Warm welcome. Prompt response with any issues. Overall really happy.

Areas for improvement:
One of our children cut his arm quite badly on the Sunday after we arrived. A medical kit in the house would have been v helpful. Also, a list of key numbers – eg hospital, pharmacy – would have helped as well.

Would you recommend Mas d Oppede and Only Provence?
Yes – great service and a great holiday.

Thank you for helping us to arrange a really great break.

It was the authentic Provence experience we were hoping for. The property and the view of Lavender, Vines and the Luberon mountains was the stuff of dreams.

Areas for improvement:
Nothing obvious that we could identify. We were there in warm weather but when it is hot air conditioning might be needed in the Master bedroom given it is upstairs. My wife could not find the hair dryer!

Would you recommend Mas d Oppede, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family?

Yes we found the villa absolutely superb and the service and response from OnlyProvence excellent. Genevieve our villa liaison was extremely helpful including getting us an appointment at the local doctor when our daughter was sick when they said they could not see us….local network helped! Chef Marie cooked the most amazing meal for us….we are still talking about it!

We had an amazing time at the property. We have been traveling around Europe this year, and this was our 8th property we've stayed at in the last 9 months, and hands down our favorite. You never know exactly what to expect when arriving, but the pictures still don't do it justice. It was for us without a doubt, home away from home. One of the games we play in the homes we've stayed at is, "what would we change if this was ours." We had to admit that finally we had found a spot that the answer was, "not a thing." It was everything we would could have asked for. It's exactly how we would do a Mas in the Provence. It's large, spacious, bright, perfectly decorated with every amenity you need, while at the same time feeling cozy and charming. The house has so many doors and windows that open up to the garden that even while inside you have the feeling of being outside. It's completely updated so you lack for nothing while perfectly blending the charm you want when visiting the Provence. The garden is filled with nooks and crannies for outdoor eating, reading, sunbathing, sitting by the fountain or watching the incredible sunrise over the vineyards, right outside the kitchen door. The fully equipped kitchen actually was fully equipped and the fig tree in the garden dropping fruit made for some great baking, while the huge supermarket five minutes away has everything, and I mean everything. As a hobby cook I was in heaven.

The house is stunning, lovely location, will return.

The setting was beautiful. The house was very comfortable and seemed much larger than the website showed. The location couldn't have been more perfect and the site of the house had gorgeous views. We never wanted to leave.

Only Provence is a very professional organization and treats it's clients with the highest regard. You all have excellent communication skills which helps take out all the guesswork needed for planning a great vacation.

Areas for improvement:Check the bikes working condition beforehand. Hair dryer in every bathroom.

It is a pleasure to wander around this village and visitors will admire the charming 15th and 16th century houses that have been skilfully restored.

You can rest awhile in the peaceful square and soak up the atmosphere.

Numerous artists, writers and movie stars have been so charmed by the style and beauty of Oppède Le Vieux that many have bought property here... you, too, will also fall in love with this beautiful place.

What to see:

Ruins of the feudal chateau. 12th century church.

The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS).
