CORONAVIRUS - YOUR SAFETY AT MAS DES ETOILES , AND NEW HI-SPEED INTERNET, AT AUGUST 18, 2020 - UPDATE.
New Notes on August 18 - Reviewed September 5.
Since the news on a possible extension of COVID-19 are not so good, we have done 2 things :
1- On cancellations : We have reduced the penalty period from 30 to 7 days for all new bookings from to-day, and on all platforms ( Ours, Booking.com, Expedia). We are going to refund any payment in the case when guests cannot leave their home or are unable to travel. And this, until the end of the season ( October 6) for Mas des Etoiles
2- On Safety : We confirm that there are only very few instances when guests could be very close. However, we are now requiring to wear a mask when moving both inside or outside.
We have had heat waves and the combination of our Air Cooling Systems proved to be very satisfactory..
As for the WIFI, a mix between Ethernet and Wireless makes is fine. Yesterday night, guests could watch the game PSG- Leipzig outside under the stars with candlelights from their IPAD !
Notes published on August 2.
We are very careful. We globally are following the procedures below. But it has been quite relaxed. Our guests have little opportunity to get close together. Breakfasts are distanced. The swimming pool is very large and less crowded than the Saint-Tropez beaches !
Members of our personnel wear masks on a permanent basis.
The real new thing is we now have HI-SPEED INTERNET AVAILABLE. So, if you have an ETHERNET plug on your system, we deliver 40-80 kbps.
Here, guests can work part-time. We have all the equipment : Scanner, printer, IPAD PRO 11 inches ...You love to be able to do whatever, on-line, near the pool, hearing the gentle noise of water flow. We also have several out-of-the-world workplaces. We have many people like that, especially having top jobs in London and Frankfurt and other.
Some comments by the guests yesterday : Your swimming pool is fabulous, better than on the pictures. I slept very well, the mattresses are real good, It is very quiet and peaceful, we needed it, ....Your breakfasts are excellent ... We think about coming back in September...

Just near Gordes in Provence, it is difficult to imagine a magical place like this one : Live and Love. Quiet, great views, an intriguing garden full of secrets, partly Mediterranean, partly British...
Be Welcome at Mas des Etoiles in Gordes, Luberon, Provence. This may be a unique experience. This B&B, we say "Chambre d'hotes" in France, is stylish and elegant, still casual and unpretentious.
Annette and I (Francois), we have developed a pleasant joyful atmosphere you will find seldom in the "maison d'hôtes" of France. The property which is recent has been designed by the best architects and landscape designers : Just simply a good taste prevails. With an association between our history and the true values of Provence : Inside refined pieces of furniture, outside lavenders, thyme, rosemarine, olive trees, vineyards and even tasty figs at your doorstep...
Originally from the Northern part of France (Lille), we relocated in Provence 15 years ago. Before, we had fascinating lives : Annette was born in Argentina and had a tri-culture education (South America, Unites States, mostly Boston - and France). On my side I had an international career with mostly exposure to USA and South East Asia. So we explored the world before the time of the Emirates. Our children mostly are on the same path - 15 grand-children.
Mas des Etoiles is a lively place and cultured people like (or love) the place. Our guests are Americans, from Brazil, Australia, Singapore, British, Germans and the whole World.
Our B&B cannot be better located : Luberon Valley and its hill-top villages - Roussillon, Bonnieux, Oppede-le-Vieux ... are just minutes away.. And the discovery of the superb Provence is just there : Aix-en-Provence and Avignon are less than one hour away. The famous " Calanques" de Cassis ( Marseilles) or Arles (Van Gogh) not so much more. We maintain a good list of the best restaurants of Gordes and Luberon. Same for the wineries (Chateauneuf-du-Pape). We help our guests for their daily programs and our proposals add value to their stay.
Here, people come to be quiet and away from their usual pressures. It is not like in these hotels around where the children cannot be under control (We don't receive kids under 12 ). Our guest are the object of all care possible and we "cherish" them. On conviviality, exchanges between guests develop naturally at the time of breakfasts or " sunset aperitifs" Discrete pleasures such as a run in the vineyards before breakfast, adventures while hiking the the nearby Abbaye of Senanque or pedaling in the brisky Mistral wind.
A last point : If you book directly with us, our B&B rate will be 10-15% lower than the one presented on Booking.com and Expedia.
WHERE COULD YOU BE BETTER IN PROVENCE, AND WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE ?
