Know It All

Hit the Spot
At the foot of Mont Ventoux, in the village of Mazan.

Come here for...
● An escapade amoureuse – where the Marquis de Sade played. ● Unpretentious provencal charm – with rooms to match. ● Outstanding cooking and lovely gardens. ● The close-by delights of Avignon.

There are lovely landscaped gardens with a pool and loungers, an excellent restaurant, book-lined library and al fresco dining terrace.

Good to know
It's a great base for exploring the Luberon region and Mont Ventoux.


30 rooms and suites

Special features
Rooms are simply but stylishly decorated in fresh provencal shades and summery fabrics, accented by antique mirrors, artworks and white painted shutters. Some rooms have four poster beds, jacuzzi baths and steam-showers, and all have wi-fi. Rooms on the ground floor have French doors leading to private patios.

Pillow Talk
Honeymooners love the Suite, with its kingsize bed, private lounge and large terrace overlooking the gardens. We also liked the Junior suites, with their garden views and (in some) jacuzzi baths.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
The restaurant includes a striking outdoor terrace overlooking lush gardens. There are two grand dining rooms with neck-stretchingly high ceilings, 100 year-old mouldings and a horde of opulent antiques. Dine on beef tournedos, roasted red tuna with fresh cheese or salmon fillets with fig crust and vegetables courtesy of chef Iris Enrich. If you’re there in August you may also want to try Château de Mazan's unique Monday truffle menu.

Breakfast is served until 10am

Room service

Yes, morning and evening.

See & Do

See & Do
This is a province packed with history; nearby attractions for those with a passion for the past are the old village of Mazan and other hilltop towns. Winding medieval alleyways lead the interested to the interesting, and a visit would not be complete without viewing the local Merovingian tombstones.

Some bedrooms have jacuzzi bathtubs and relaxing steam showers and there is an outdoor pool, but no spa.

Diary Dates
Take in some film, theatre or dance at the Festival d’Avignon.

Arrive at the end of the summer and you can grape-pick with the locals.
