Location, location, location
Mas des Fortunes is located 2km from the centre of Ansouis, 30km from Aix-en-Provence. This perched village, classified among “The most beautiful villages of France”, is sheltered from the mistral and dominates the plain of the Durance in the southern Vaucluse.
Ansouis is beloved for its thousand-year-old chateau overlooking the Grand Luberon. The village is surrounded by a landscape of vineyards and was a key location during the filming of “Jean de Florette” and “Manon des Sources”, directed by Claude Berri and based on the novels by Marcel Pagnol.
