Overlooking the Luberon valley, and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, there is an air of true provencal spirit here. Upon entrance through the front door, the open salon and full windows ahead welcome you into the home and terraced gardens.
The salon and fully equipped kitchen are separated by a large dining area overlooking the gardens, and a further outdoor dining terrace with BBQ are found just on the other side of the kitchen.
On the ground floor you will also find a masterpiece fire place, TV room with flat screen television, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms.
The large master en-suite bedroom is located on the first floor with a lovely terrace for enjoying morning coffee overlooking the valley. A second en-suite bedroom is also on this first floor, and both rooms are equipped with air conditioning for those warmer summer days.
A beautiful cottage by the pool, with its own private entrance, provides a sixth bedroom with large en-suite bathroom.
The pool is located down just a few steps from the terraced outdoor dining area and small cottage, and offers incredible views and privacy.
Just beyond the pool and attached to the salon sits another outdoor seating area, perfect for lunches in the garden, overlooking a small green field, olive groves, a boules court, and the expansive valley views beyond the property.
This renovated farmhouse is truly the essence of Provence.

5 out of 5
Mas Tranquille is magnifient. We absolutely loved it. Beautiful villa and property in the valley below Gordes. Very peaceful. Amazing views in every direction. Very well appointed, literally every comfort has been taken into consideration. Nicolas, the property manager is a step above. Very professional and efficient. A couple small issues arose and he was there immediately to deal with them…with a big smile on his face. Cannot recommend this property enough. We used it for a very special family week!
The place was amazing. I'd give it 5 stars.
Only two suggestions for improvement:
1. The man who met us at the property didn't really speak any english. He showed us around the property and was able to explain things in broken english but it was a little difficult.
2. The directions to the property weren't very good. We could make it to the main street before the turn off to the house but after that we got completely lost and ended up in someone else's driveway, who luckily for us was very friendly and rang our contact on the phone and spoke to him in French and arranged for us to meet him on the main road leading to the property. This caused us some wasted time and added stress. After we were directed to the property we went back over the directions and still were baffled as to how they would have led us to the right place. The property itself also has no signage out the front so it would be very difficult to know we were at the right place even if we did find it.

Mas de Fontcaudette is in the Gordes countryside, five kilometers from the village 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.
