Pin this Villa
Mas des Platanes is a beautiful newly renovated stone farmhouse located walking distance from the village of Oppède.

The house is set among the vineyards with gorgeous views extending into the famous Luberon hills.

Swimmers will love the 18m long pool set in a beautiful un-spoilt environment, while those who prefer to relax will love the varied spaces and terraces in the sun or in the shade of the large platane trees.

The whole house is air conditioned for the comfort of the guests. The feeling of space is real and the brightness is due to an elegant and modern decoration and airy colors.

Two different staircases give each access to two bedrooms, therefore giving privacy to adults / children, or couples.

Our guests can walk within less than 5 minutes to cafés and restaurants in the village and the new large supermarket in Coustellet is just 5 minutes’ drive from the home.

This property is a perfect painting of Provence.

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. We loved Mas des Platanes. The beds were comfortable. The rooms very clean. And the kitchen lovely and well-equipped. We would have loved a drip coffee pot or press coffee pot. We had 5 adults all drinking coffee in the morning and went through many individual packets!! One additional suggestion: each bedroom needs a hair dryer. We had only 2 hair dryers and 5 heads! The house was lovely and we had a great week!

Q. Is there anything that needs to be replaced or updated?
R. I don't believe so.

Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
R. Yes

Q. Chef Tour Experience Details
R. Chef Marie was excellent! She made dinner for us on 2 nights of our week-long stay. I highly recommend her. She is indeed a "chef" of high quality. The food selections were local and the meals were some of our most outstanding in our 2 week European trip.

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

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. We particularly enjoyed the large spacious villa, the outdoor terrace and the pool. We had dinner on the patio each night. While Oppede is not a large village, it is well located. Ménerbes is only 5 minutes away with excellent dining available.

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. Our group of 5 adults loved Mas des Platanes near the small village of Oppede. The 4 bedroom villa was quite comfortable for our group . We greatly enjoyed the pool each afternoon and having a glass of wine on the terrace. Chef Marie made us dinner 2 nights and I highly recommend her. While the village of Oppede is small, it is centrally located and Ménerbes is only 5 mins away. Only Provence was a joy to work with. They were very responsive in planning the trip. I would use Only Provence again!

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. Nothing. Service was awesome. Everyone we dealt with was absolutely first rate.

Q. Is there anything that needs to be replaced or updated?
R. We had to buy an “American” style drip coffee maker, to address our unsophisticated coffee palates, :), but other than that everything was in superb condition.

Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
R. Yes

Q. Chef Tour Experience Details
R. Chef Damian and his assistant Lisa were fantastic. He cooked dinner for my 65th birthday and it was one of the most memorable meals ever! We recommend him with the highest possible regards.

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

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. We love this part of the world and staying at Mas des Plantanes was an exceptional experience. Everything about it is outstanding. Interior space is airy, comfortable and larger than it appears in the images on the website. Exterior space (pool, gardens, views, boule court, etc.) was a source of constant delight. Nearby village was just right, too. I also want to put in a strong recommendation for Hubert of Luberon Biking, who was fantastic. The bikes he delivered promptly were in superb condition and he did extra things, like loaned us a brand new pump to keep the tires on our road bikes at the right pressure. Finally, the property manager, Kim, could not have been more pleasant and was super competent

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. Thank you so much for arranging an absolutely wonderful week in the Luberon Valley. We are especially grateful given are fits and starts about which villa to book back in November. We are already starting to plan on a two week trip next year.
