Pin this Villa
Surrounded by vineyards, with glorious views of the village of Menerbes, Mas du Real provides the ultimate in easy living in the heart of the Luberon’s “golden triangle” of Gordes – Bonnieux – Menerbes. Only 40 minutes from Avignon TGV and 1 hour from Marseilles airport, as you drive through the gates you will feel as if you have arrived at an oasis of beauty, tranquillity and possibility, from which you can explore the very best of Provence.

The ancient stone walls of the house conceal a light and airy interior with unusually expansive living spaces; a large modern kitchen; and 5 double bedrooms, all ensuite.

And then there is the magical 2 acre garden, which includes a large pool and a tennis court, as well as an exquisite “jardin a la francaise”, lawns, lavender field, cypress trees and olive grove. And the village of Menerbes, with its bakery, grocer, pharmacy and restaurants, is less than a 15 minute walk, its church bells faintly audible from the house.

Few properties offer such a deeply relaxing combination as this of expansive house, large mature garden and golden location – ensuring a fabulous holiday for all.
