Provence's most atmospheric B&Bs
Le Mas Perreal
Le Mas Perreal is an idyllic place for lovers of solitude, lovely hilltop villages and fine dining. Languishing in vineyards and cherry orchards on a vast 17-acre domain, minutes from the picturesque town of St-Saturnin-lès-Apt, this lovingly restored B&B features five rooms furnished with period antiques and Provençal fabrics. There is a charming simplicity, a soothing, serene mix of country antiques and modern bits and pieces. On hot summer days, relax by the heavenly pool or enjoy the big garden and revel in distant views of the Luberon range. Elisabeth, a long-time French teacher, offers cooking lessons to guests. If you can bear to break away, there are some delightful hillside villages to discover.
