A restored French farmhouse perched on a hillside amidst acres of unspoiled farmland with a stunning vista of lavender fields and cherry orchards, the Mas de Roquejeanne is a peaceful bucolic retreat in the Luberon.
PVB stumbled on this hermetically-sealed bed-and-breakfast when we were tasting cherries at the Malbec farm. Whereas there is not much going on in the nearby village of Murs except for one restaurant, the touristy Gordes is a few minutes down the road and the rest of the Luberon villages just beyond, and in the other direction down the Cols de Murs – Venasque, Carpentras and Avignon.
The Mas has four charming Provencal-decorated bedrooms of identical size with two single beds and bathroom. At 550 euros a week, with a generous petit déjeuner served on a covered patio looking out on the countryside, the Mas de Roquejeanne is a splendid perch from which to explore the Luberon and the Vaucluse.
