Le Jas is an old farmhouse set in beautiful gardens in the middle of the Provencal countryside, bathed in sunshine for many weeks through the year. We can sleep up to 12 people comfortably, are well equipped for small children, and once you get here you will probably feel reluctant to move!

Enjoy the freedom of plenty of space, the tennis court, the large swimming pool, a huge lawn where children can run around and play. We have an unusually big BBQ on the covered terrace where you can dine late into the night, having sipped your rose on one of the terraces surrounding the house.

The view from the pool spans 360 degrees! Take a bottle of something special a few minutes’ from the house to The View – breathtaking views of the sun going down across The Luberon, due west.

We have a microclimate here in this part of Provence, hence the building of an astro centre nearby at St. Michel Observatoire in the 1930s, because we famously have some of the clearest skies in Europe.

Villeneuve is the nearest village where you can stroll through the woods to get your bread in the mornings, and stop for coffee en route. For more action, visit Forcalquier – a medieval market town with a buzzy weekly market every Monday.

David Masson is the English-speaking guardian on call, who has a cottage on the premises.
