What we love
- Bright and spacious with sweeping countryside views
- Delightful outdoor terrace and pool area
- Private boules court
This superb Provençal farmhouse is situated in the Luberon valley amid fragrant lavender fields and vineyards, with panoramic views of the countryside. Mas Santoline is centrally located to the Luberon mountain villages with access to walking and riding trails, yet far enough away to retain its desired privacy. The nearby village of Joucas is a 20-minute walk from your peaceful hideaway. Here you will find twisting narrow streets paved with ancient stones and the local church, which houses a glorious museum of Italian trompe l'oeil painting. The distinctive red cliffs of Roussillon are a ten-minute drive from Mas Santoline.
The villa offers the perfect accommodation for a multi-generational family getaway, sleeping up to ten guests in five individually designed bedrooms. Natural hues and traditional terracotta tiles flow throughout the property, creating a tranquil atmosphere and the ultimate space to unwind. A relaxed outdoor dining terrace provides the ideal setting for a family meal on a balmy evening, as the sun sets deep into the valley. The grassed pool area, equipped with sun loungers and parasols, is a great place to spend a family afternoon in the sunshine. Alternatively, simply retreat to one of the shaded areas that surround the house for unadulterated peace and total bliss.
The location of Mas Santoline affords avid walkers a practical and luxurious base. Explore Provence with its hilltop villages, winding streets, yellow-stone buildings, meadows of lavender and lush greenery. Buy fresh local produce and Provençal delicacies at one of the nearby daily markets. If you'd prefer to remain at your villa, lounge by the pool in the warmth of the sun or read the newspaper and drink a delicious coffee on your sun-dappled outdoor terrace. Retire to your bright, airy bedroom for a quiet moment before enjoying a fun-filled game of boules with the rest of the family as the mountainous backdrop fades with the light of day.

Making your reservation: These properties are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, before you reserve, you are required to review and sign a rental agreement for the villa (the “Rental Agreement”). We will send you the Rental Agreement by email. The Rental Agreement explains in detail all of terms and conditions regarding rental and use of the property in detail. We shall have no obligation to accept any reservations, unless the Rental Agreement is fully executed.
Payment: After you have signed the Rental Agreement and filled out the appropriate information, as approved by us, a nonrefundable payment of the one-half (50%) of the Rental Fee (which price is defined in your Rental Agreement) must be received by us within seven (7) days to confirm the reservation. The remaining one-half (50%) of the Rental Fee is due 60 days before the arrival date, and is also non-refundable. If reservations are made less than 60 days prior to the arrival date, then 100% of the Rental Fee must be paid upon the signing of the Rental Agreement. Please know that a failure to pay any portion of the Rental Fee as set forth above and in Rental Agreement can result in loss of the reservation of the villa and a termination of the Rental Agreement. We will confirm receipt of each payment and note any outstanding balance and due date(s).
Cancellation: We have a no refund cancellation policy, but usually succeed in rescheduling cancelled reservations to the Spring or Fall or re-booking the cancelled period to another group and refunding the party that cancelled. Failure to pay the final balance (which is due 60 days before arrival) or provide required information for the security deposit may be deemed a cancellation with no refund due. Clients are advised to consider Trip Cancellation Insurance with the carrier of their choice at the time of confirmation.
