Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Le Mas des Herbes Blanches, Provence

On a slight hill a couple of miles outside the hill top village of Joucas in the Vaucluse between Ventoux and the Lubéron, the Le Mas des Herbes Blanches enjoys privileged views over the Lubéron and the village of Roussillon. Built of local stone in the style of a low, provencal 'mas' or farmhouse, Le Mas des Herbes Blanches is a supremely comfortable, 5-star, Relais & Chateaux hotel. Yet, for all its quality of surroundings and service, Le Mas des Herbes Blanches is unpretentious, cosy, relaxing a divine holiday hotel, thoroughly deserving of a stay. In its own grounds of olives and sycamores, with clumps of lavender and vineyards just below, Le Mas des Herbes Blanches offers comfortable lounges, a stylish, rustic modern bar, a sun terrace and open air swimming pool with panoramas of the greeny grey Luberon hills and of course the restaurant with its modern fire place, views and elegant and calm atmosphere. The food is outstandingly interesting and the quality of flavours, presentation and taste are superb. The bedrooms all have telephone, television and mini bar and vary in size. All have balcony or terrace, bath and wc and air conditioning, but the standards tend to be north facing, whilst the superiors are larger with terraces and spacious bathrooms. The decoration is simple in a stylish way, but fitting for the climate with white washed walls complementing sands and ochres in material and furnishings, and comfortable. We cannot recommend Le Mas des Herbes Blanches highly enough either for a long, relaxing stay in this delicious region or for just a couple of nights if you want to tour Provence and the South of France.

The journey and how you get there

For a holiday to Le Mas des Herbes Blanches, our clients fly to Marseille or Nice and then usually have the use of a hire-car for the duration of the holiday, or they arrive in their own car on a self-drive holiday, often as part of a multi-centre touring holiday (we would include a Eurotunnel crossing or a ferry crossing, depending on the itinerary), or they arrive by train, having taken the Eurostar London to Paris or Lille, and then the TGV to Avignon, Aix-en-Provence or Nice. On some dates there is a direct service of the Eurostar from London to Avignon. From the railway station, if you are visiting more than one hotel or want to explore the region, we recommend having a hire-car. We will arrange this for you.

About Provence

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Provence, the land which is the ancient province of the Romans, offers a rich tapestry of landscapes, culture and traditions. From the sunflower fields of Van Gogh`s Arles, to the sandy marshes of the Camargue, from the Cezanne like landscapes of Aix inland to the olive groves and lavender beds that surround the perched hill top villages, and finally to the dramatic coastline of the azure Mediterranean where the sandy beaches, craggy corniches and fishing villages have been transformed into a sophisticated holiday playground you experience a multitude of contrasting and complementary senses and images. The perfumes of lavender, thyme, rosemary, citrus, pine and olive mingle in the air and the light is bright and clear. Add to all these sensations a wonderful climate, good food and local wine and unlimited sporting and sightseeing activities and you can understand why Provence is not just an ideal holiday destination but a romantic way of life. Provence still has miles of open road across country, tiny, sleepy villages, dramatic hills and craggy peaks, beautiful, sense enriching panoramas and aromas all waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

Highlights of Provence

Cultural highlights include santons, Souleiado Provençal fabrics, herbs and lavender, wine and olive oil, melons and pastis, boules and berets.
