Holiday Apartments in a traditional Provençal Farmhouse



    Mas Saint-Geniès in the Vaucluse has a rich and varied history – once the home of French novelist Robert Sabatier, it was also once a priory, silk mill and working farm dating back centuries.


    Now lovingly restored with traditional French olive and elm, terracotta and stone interiors, we offer two spacious well-appointed apartments each accommodating two adults - with fully-equipped kitchens and bathrooms, access to the private inner courtyard and fountain, an Orangery-style drawing room, large landscaped secluded garden, swimming pool and pool-house.


    Surrounded by glorious vineyards and cherry-orchards, Mas Saint Geniès is situated a stone’s throw from the magnificent hilltop village of Venasque with its 5th century Babtistry in Mont Ventoux Nature Park, and only 20 minutes from Gordes and the 12th century Abbaye de Sénanque.

    beautiful cool modern French bedroom


    Our apartments are newly refurbished combining traditional wood, stone and terracotta

    to evoke the mood of a Provençal Mas,

    with modern furnishings and lighting

    for a light, airy and tranquil space.


    Cool in summer, cosy in winter,

    each room is air-conditioned.

    Soft linens and pillows ensure blissful sleep

    in our sumptuous beds

    and each has an en-suite

    shower-room with double sinks.

    There’s a wealth of scrumptious restaurants

    a stone’s throw away.  Should you wish to cook, everything is on hand in the fully equipped kitchens

    dining area both indoors and out.
