Heaven in the Luberon, Our group of 7 adults and 5 children spent a week at Mas de la Boissiere. The home, location, facilities and accommodations are all even better than described and shown in the photos. We were greeted by Ulrike who showed us around, then disappeared. She reappeared through the week to clean and tidy up while we were out. She and Rene, who live on the property, were available to answer questions and offer advice when requested but otherwise were not seen. The Mas is in a lovely location, close to several towns and villages along interesting, winding roads, with little traffic. The grounds are spacious, the pool is large and inviting. It, along with the ping pong table, the cupboard of books and puzzles, and the library of DVDs kept the young ones busy when we were not out exploring the nearby markets and hill towns, or hiking. The house itself is perfect for a large group, with lots of room for lounging and hanging out together as well as quiet places to get away for awhile. The kitchen and dining room are spacious and easily accommodated us all. The ensuite bedrooms are very luxurious and comfortable. Thank you to Ulrike, Rene and Georgie. ES- Toronto
Three families from Iceland stayed in this beautiful, superbly located and well maintained house in July 2016. The house is situated in the fantastic Luberon area, old style but well maintained, clean and proper. The rooms are large and all with ensuite bathrooms, and the kitchen is perfect for collaborative cooking.
The pool is large and suits well for kids. The owners are welcoming and fair. Overall we had a great time and aim to return if possible.
We had a wonderful time at Mas de la Boissiere. What a beautiful place! The house was perfect for our family – enough room for everyone to spread out and to get together. We were all very comfortable. R&U were very helpful and it was nice to wake up to a clean, inviting pool every morning. We spent our days exploring the area and markets, and our afternoons by the pool or in the shade as it was quite hot and windy. Cucuron is a lovely village and we had a wonderful dinner at La Petite Maison.
I know we would love to return one day and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Mas to friends. There was absolutely nothing negative to comment on. JM
We had an amazing two weeks staying here. The house is beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. All bedrooms are very spacious and have wonderful ensuite bathrooms. Everything you need is provided including a very well equipped kitchen. Outside there is a large garden, pool and many sun loungers. Excellent gas barbecue, table tennis and an amazing boules pitch! The outside seating areas are perfect – comfortable sofas and chairs and the outside dining table and chairs are in a shaded open sided ‘barn’ at the end of the pool – perfect for breakfast, lunch and supper out of the direct heat. The local town is charming and has everything you need. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone and we shall definitely be going again. The hosts René and Ulrika looked after us very well answering any questions we had, booking restaurant tables for us and even found out where the closest paragliding would be! Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend. BB – Kent
Simply wonderful. What a simply wonderful holiday we have all had at Mas de la Boissiere ! Our large family ages ranging from late 50’s to 10 months have all just spent a wonderful 2 weeks at this perfect family home. Everything has been so well thought, a real home from home – the Kitchen is very well appointed and so sociable as you can enjoy a glass of Rose with other members of your party whilst they are sitting outside on the verandah surrounding the Pool. The pool was kept spotlessly clean by Ulrike who every morning (early!!) was making sure plants were watered and pool etc outside was as it should be. Bedrooms are very spacious with beautifully clean crisp White bed linen – Ulrike came in twice a week to clean and change the bedlinen so when we returned from visiting one of the wonderful local markets the House was pristine. Having rented houses over the past 10 years with various different companies this has been by far the best – Ulrike and Rene, whilst living on site are the perfect Hosts – discreet but so very helpful. Rene was so kind in taking us to a local Sunday Market : SB – Essex
Although this is a rental place, we call this “Our vacation home”, since we have been here several times and plan to come back more. Beautiful house, all bedrooms with bathrooms en suite, large living room, spacious fully equipped kitchen, nice dining room. Everything designed so you can easily be there with a large group, without bothering each other. Great pool and large outdoor sitting and dining area. Very nice that the caretakers of the house ( a very nice couple, with hotel management background) are on the property: they are there to welcome you, to answer all questions, to take care of the pool and even of the cleaning of the house, while still leaving you totally in peace. And if you want, they even cook for you (of course for an extra charge)! The Luberon is a great area, since it is far enough away from the Mediterranean that it is quiet, and close enough to lots of other things to see and do. There is a library of tourist books in the house, as well as
cook books and just novels, mostly English. HV
Indeed, we had a wonderful time – weather has been almost perfect, and we had long day trips to accomplish all that we planned. The villa was beyond expectations, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. Thanks for the service, and thank you for being so forthcoming. ES
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your gorgeous house. Everything was just perfect and Ulrike and Rene were extremely helpful. Our only complaint was the weather! – Laura
As the age of 75, I have stayed in many holiday villas in France, Spain and Portugal but I have very rarely found one so well equipped and as charmingly appointed as the delightful Mas de la Boissiere. Nor have I found one with such discreet and efficient help which R&U have provided. We have all had a marvellous fortnight in Provence complete with a spectacular electrical storm to add a touch of drama! Wonderful food, wonderful sunshine, wonderful swimming and lots of lovely wine have all contributed to a truly memorable time.

We have had a marvellous stay in this splendid house set in such a stunning ambience. We will treasure our memories of our holiday. Company, conversation, swimming, walking, food and wine were all A +. Superb and discreet service from R&U.

We had the most wonderful time, we loved Mas de la Boissiere and will definitely be back, perhaps to try another one of your houses. R&U were fantastic and made our stay special, particularly the evening they cooked for us for a birthday. Everything was so good – the house was excellent, well equipped, comfy beds, we loved the little touches like decent liquid soap, Internet was fast and reliable, pool was lovely, the book of suggestions was great (we loved the goat farm for lunch at Sivergues). Overall a brilliant holiday, thank you.
Michael (August 2010)
Thanks so much for everything. The house is beautiful and had every little thing we could have asked for. We loved the pool and grounds, as well as the delicious meals that R prepared. We hope to return some day.
Richard (May 2010)
Thank you for making our holiday even more enjoyable by helping us plan our stay. Right down to the detail of looking after our little ones – it was a warm and welcoming stay. So hospitable. We look forward to seeing you again on another getaway.
McK (September 2010)
You were correct – our stay was way too short. Mas is a great house. We definitely want to come back, probably with a group of couples. So much to do and see, yet also perfect for relaxing. I can see why you love the area. Mas was perfect for our family, especially having two wings, plenty of bedrooms each with a private bath. The bedroom downstairs for my daughter’s boyfriend and the separate wing for my son and his family were ideal! All very well appointed and furnished. Great experience. Thank you so much.
Thanks for a wonderful stay. Villa was perfect for our family and the grounds are beautiful. We had wonderful meals prepared – absolutely delicious. We had perfect weather the whole time which made our stay so memorable. Would recommend to others.
Chris (June 2010)
Another wonderful stay at Mas de la Boissiere ! Thank you R & U. I particularly enjoyed the “bushwacking” on horseback and the delicious meal. Thank you and hope to see you again soon.
Cat (June 2010)
Many many thanks for such a delightful house! We had an excellent holiday and congratulate you on the house and the caretakers R&U who looked after us splendidly We hope that we left all in a good state and we would very much like to stay there again sometime.
We came from far way to enjoy this bit of heaven on earth – and we did tremendously! Thank you for all your help and advice – you made our stay that much more fun. We all hope to be back someday! What a week!
Eva (July 2010)
I have never stayed in a more beautiful home, nor have I ever had people take care of me and my friends so well. The pictures on your website don’t do the place justice! None of us understood the true size of the pool outdoor dining or lounge areas, and certainly no-one understood how grand some of the bedroom suites were. The place is truly a dream. I would love to come back sometime soon, or come to one of your other places.
Dawson (August 2010)
One week of heaven at this incredible Mas! Everyone was so happy to leave the US behind and settle into such a relaxing, comfortable and inviting place. We could not believe our fortune for finding such an ideal location, the wonderful kitchen and pool as well as the expert help you provided with restaurant recommendationss, suggestions for places to visit, laundry assistance… the list goes on and on. A million thanks for a fabulous time!
Neris (August 2010)
Awesome! What a place to celebrate 50! Wonderful house, gorgeous food, ultimate care and attention from R&U – all just to good – to sum it up – we don’t want to go!
