Calm & Serenity

It is my great pleasure to open the doors of ikigai le mas to you. It is a charming hamlet composed of a main house and its 2 masets: dolceVita and la louve located at the foot of the castle of the village of Cabrières d’Avignon gathered around a private courtyard with walls that breathe authenticity, with trees , scented with lavender, jasmine, old roses which offers you a confidential address in the golden triangle of the Luberon.

Crossed the doorstep, a sweetness of life envelops you and never leaves you. Calm and serenity are the masters of the place and poetry accompanies your steps every season, both outdoors and indoors.

Sculptures, plant and mineral curiosities here and there meet your gaze where several convivial spaces are combined which invite relaxation, rest, meditation. On the pool side, a lounge area will delight you.

Many walks and excursions await you at the foot of the house, which is a strategic point for visiting the famous Luberon villages, its markets, its artists, its golf course and many other activities.

Whether with family or friends, for a tourist trip, a seminar with work colleagues, you can participate in floral art, nihonga painting or self-discovery workshops, ikigai le mas welcomes you.

Philosophy

ikigai le mas combines my private and professional world in one place and allows me to bring together passions, professions, vocation and mission. According to a Japanese philosophy, ikigai is the equivalent of joie de vivre and raison d’être. This philosophy invites us to recognize what we love, what is easy for us to do, what we can be paid for, and how we can contribute to the world.

This house is my ikigai; she meets all the interests and passions of my life, what I am and what I have been working for for more than 40 years: creating places and creative exchange workshops, enhancing a space, a person, painting , writing, inspiring … It is the beauty of people, flowers, nature, places, objects that cross my path that carries me and inspires me to express my infinite love for life.
