A little history

Built at the beginning of the 19th century, the Mas de La Pinède de Ragan, in the Luberon was a farm.

Acquired by Mr Cravagnolo at the beginning of the 20th century thanks to the flourishing trade of truffles, this farm exploited the grounds around the farmhouse. An extension was built in 1948 to have more storage capacity for farm products. There were two cows, some sheeps, and also grew, among other things, melons. Today, lavender and wine vines have replaced market gardening.

It was in 2000 that Martiale Bluhm bought all the buildings to renovate and make them into gites.
This renovation, of which you can see some photos below, has been done in the spirit of Provence and only with materials of the area. This transmits to La Pinède de Ragan an authentic and unique character for the greatest pleasure of our hosts.

It's because we live on the valley of Ragan and because there are 5 pine trees by the pool that the site is called La Pinède de Ragan (Ragan's Pinewood). The 3 cypresses on the logo mean 'welcome'. Originally, it meant that in this place you could drink, eat and sleep.
