Although it's been about a month since we stayed at Le Mas des Gres, the pleasure lingers in our memories. Upon recommendation of Paris-based friends we booked 5 nights in early October. Lagnes makes a good base for exploring the area, with easy day trips possible to the wine towns like Gigondas or Chateauneuf-du-Pape, delightful hill towns such as Gordes and Seguret and tourist-attracting towns like Fountains-de-Vaucluse or L'Isles-sur-la-Sorgue. You drive through very pleasant countryside with vineyards, orchards, vegetable-growing fields-beautiful, peaceful with little traffic.
The owners of Le Mas des Gres, Nina and Thierry, have created a very special place, throughly welcoming, with a high level of comfort, and amazingly delicious meals. Not stuffy in the least. You felt like family, if your family included a world-class chef and superbly charming hostess. We didn't want to leave! We stayed in the ground-level room 12 which had its own patio and because it is also accessible, a very nice, big shower. We were worried that it might not be sound-proof, but it proved to be perfectly quiet, even with families staying there too. (Note that our hosts provided for family guests to eat in a separate dining room from "adults"-a very nice accommodation for all parties.)
We were delighted with breakfast and dinner-truly 3-star cuisine. The Inn is lovely with common rooms filled with books and comfy sofas and a perfect patio for enjoying the rest of that bottle of wine you started at last nights dinner. We hope to return!!!
