WE REIMAGINED LUXURY

The architectural approach and inspiration.

The luxury of space.

Highlighted perspective.

Iconic materials, dry stone, tiled floors, walls with the patina of time, oak and linen …

Shades of bright and natural colours taken from the Provencal tradition but imprinted by time and the history of the area. This soothing atmosphere blends with the surrounding nature and the warm, fiery tones.

A study in light, reflections and transparency to create different moods and reveal every space at different times of the day.

The public areas

Reception and an intimate lounge, a bar both cosy and eclectic

The restaurant bathed in light, with the splendour of the terrace and the property as focal point. Hexagonal tiles, voluminous linen curtains, the subtle composition between furniture and materials.

The evocation of the building’s soul takes its strength in the design of the room. An archetypal headboard with modern counterpoint in the integrated light of the mirror. 

Graphic composition and reinterpretation of the iconic “Tomette” hexagonal floor tiles: a tangle of wood, stone and marble in the random cut of the carpet.

Come the evening and reflections like luminous lace dance on the walls and offer the visitor a delicate metamorphosis.

Lightweight sheer curtains, golden touches that bring a bright and fresh atmosphere to a refined, elegant and comfortable space.

This is the main place to express the feeling of serenity that the traveler will enjoy.

Unique moments in an exceptional property.

Activities & Leisure at the hotel

The Mas des Herbes Blanches is designed such that when guests arrive, they can enjoy everything and not want to leave.

Because every activity – swimming pool, walks and day dreams – has its own quiet moment.

Ideally exposed, lined with olive trees, palms and white stone walls browned by the sun, the pool heated at 25 ° C from April 15 will allow you to relax, lulled by the sound of cicadas.

The Mas offers a petanque pitch and hiking trails, swimming, relaxing, lounging, cocktails and, from July 15th, massages  are waiting for you at Spa Sothys!

Broadband Internet access is provided in every room. You may also discover our paintings exhibitions.

We also have a new kitchen garden where we grow herbs for use in the restaurant.

Finally, the 5-acre park you will make you realize the Provencal “garrigue” in the shade of its pines, its alleys of laurel, its thyme or rosemary, and evergreens plants…

Gordes

Mas des Herbes Blanches is the quintessential Luberon Hotel – located on a hillside below the amazing town of Gordes, with views of the Luberon just a few km away. This is the true heart of Provence, with the warmth of the sun and the aromas of rosemary and lavender growing wild.

Within easy driving distance are such wonders as Avignon, the amazing Roman acqueduct at Pont du Gard, Fontaine de Vaucluse, the biggest spring in France and the source of the river Sorgue, from where it tumbles down into the picturesque town of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, all tinkling streams and fantastic antique shops.

Don’t miss out on a trip to the Camargue with its white horses and flamingos or the ancient town of Les Baux, perched on the rocky backbone of the Chaine des Alpilles, below which sits the lovely town of St Remy de Provence, home to the Roman town of Glanum, and the monastery of St Paul de Mausole, one-time home of a certain Vincent van Gogh.

Visit beaches, climb the 2100m of Mont Ventoux as seen on the Tour de France, take leisurely bike rides along green and fragrant country lanes, hike through pine covered hillsides or just lounge by the pool. The choice is yours, but there is plenty of choices!

Restaurant “La Table du Mas”

At Mas des Herbes Blanches, meals are taken outside as often as inside, sitting on the sun-warmed terrace as cicadas chirp in the background and the sun glints from the pool below. Choose from a selection of regional specialities, remade by our chef in his own inimitable style, enhanced perhaps by a glass of rosé from Tavel.

Dining in the restaurant “La Table du Mas” is no hardship however, its light and airy nature making it a pleasure either by day or night.

Dishes make use of local and regional specialities, such as Provençal vegetables, Luberon rack of lamb, local saffron and aïolli.
