With its south-facing terrace overlooking an infinity-view swimming pool, newly landscaped grounds and five spacious ensuite bedrooms, all of them air-conditioned, Mas du Jas is the ideal headquarters for a group of couples who desire a residence of great comfort and character from which to explore Provence and its many culinary and historic treasures. Situated on a one-hectare (2.5-acre) slightly elevated terrain in a small hamlet of farmhouses near Gordes, the property has a quiet countryside ambience that is completely untroubled by traffic noise. A long row of olive trees stretches across the property. From the terrace and most rooms views stretch over the Lubéron Valley to the horizon. Even with its bucolic setting, there is a wide variety of quality restaurants and food shops within a 10-minute drive of the property.
Mas du Jas is constructed in classic Provençal style, with thick stone walls, rust-red terra cotta tile roof and a southern orientation to take advantage of long days of sunlight. Framing the wide windows are shutters the color of olive leaves. The interior decor emphasizes cool, pale colors contrasted with natural woods and dark accents such as the wrought-iron stair rails. Throughout the house the ceilings, walls and limestone floors are off-white, which brings out the rich tones of the exposed ceiling beams. The ambiance is simultaneously fresh and light, yet anchored in the enduring architectural tradition found throughout Provence.
