The Experience

Relax in the shade of the Lebanon cedars. Slip into the pool. From wherever you bask, the landscape is dominated by the limestone cliff that oversees the orchards, lavender fields and wild garrigue of Provence.

This 19th-century mas, once a staging post between three castles, was later a farm. Now the former stable is a stunning open living space, and the granary a sanctuary for guests. Mara and Jerome’s dedication to the renovation shines through and they welcome you as friends – along with their daughter Morgane and their little dog Jango. Breakfast is a feast of Provencal treats and homemade delights, at tables outdoors and in.

One of the less touristy lavender sites is a Cistercian abbey north of Gordes – Notre Dame de Sénanque, 15km. Also remarkable are the disused ochre mines at Rustrel, ‘le Colorado de Provence.’

We were warmly welcomed to Les Mas aux Cedres by Jerome and Mara - for our 6 night stay. Our Suite was spacious and airy on 1st floor and one double on the ground floor with a garden terrace - clean and modern. Lovely start to each morning with Breakfast served in the garden courtyard with freshly squeezed juices, home made cakes and jams (thank you Mara), croissant, yogurt and fruits. The pool setting was divine, great views of the Madeline mountain and sound of the crickets. So many wonderful places to visit all within 20-30 minutes drive. We highly recommend staying at Les Mas aux Cedres

Zoe, Thonon Les Bains

Mara and Jerome will warmly welcome you to their beautiful home in this gloriously off-the-beaten track part of Provence. Rooms are modern and supremely comfortable thanks to their years of hotel industry experience around the world. To arrive at Mas aux Cedres is like coming home. Guests are assured peace and relaxation amid lavender fields, vineyards and quaint villages and on site yoga.

The neighbourhood

The house lies in the hamlet Le Chateau in the Luberon National Park, in olive, wine and lavender country. Visit the Domaine La Tuilière, 4km, for wine tastings - or hire their scooters (trottinettes) and explore. From Lioux, 1.5km (one of those villages that is the essence of old Provence) you trek in beautiful countryside, and can walk along the cliff top for spectacular views.

Local points of interest from Jerome & Mara Pincepoche

  • Walk along the top of Madeleine cliff for breathtaking views of Luberon and the valley (1km from the Mas).
  • Discover the amazing ochre colours in the Colorado Provencal, Rustrel (15km).
  • Go back in history and visit the secluded centuries-old Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque (12km).
  • Take a 'Lavender tour' in June & July across Lioux and the surrounding villages (onsite).
  • Wake up early to watch the sunrise on a hot air balloon (3km).

Jerome & Mara Pincepoche

Mara is Italian, Jerome is from Brittany, and both have backgrounds in hospitality. Great travellers, they met and married in Dubai, moved to Malaysia where their daughter was born, and in 2008 settled in France. He has a passion for fine dining and gardening, and she is "a passionate yogi"! In 2017 they fell in love with this place. Hospitality is in their blood - and they are living their dream.
