Beautiful XVIIIth century ' mas ' in sunny Provence near Vaison-la-Romaine at the foot of the legendary Mont Ventoux. The 'mas de Cocagne ' guesthouse is set in 5 hectares of landscaped park, with sweeping views of hills and vineyards. It is easily accessible by car or by train from Avignon TGV station, from Orange, as well as from the soon-to-be-opened Carpentras station. It can accommodate up to 15 people in the main building, tastefully decorated in the Provençal style. The self-contained, fully furnished gite can accommodate four or five guests.
Guests have access to the swimming pool, pool house, barbecues and free bicycles. Close by and accessible on foot is the historical village of Malaucène, which features a top-quality spa and health center, tennis courts and a horse-riding center. We are happy to provide local information and recommend local food and wine producers, tours and other activities. The landscape is breathtaking and the area offers numerous activities and excursions year-round.
While Samuel, fluent in Russian and Armenian, is in charge of the table d'hôte providing the best local products and wines, Laura, a French-born fluent English speaker and professional teacher offers lessons in French for foreigners.
