For hundreds of years, artists such as Cézanne, Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, and Monet have been drawn to Provence for its warm climate and beautiful clarity of light. Create your own masterpiece of a holiday with this week's Escape to this breathtaking region in south eastern France.

Perched in the Luberon Mountains, the picturesque walled village of Ménerbes is home to the Hostellerie Le Roy Soleil where you will enjoy a two- or three-night package for two in your very own junior suite. With-draw just £169 from your funds for a two night stay during April, May, June, September, or October (up to a £540 value), while three nights over that period will cost just £229 (up to a £766 value).

Should you prefer to visit during the warm summer months of July or August, two nights can be yours for £199 (up to a £550 value), or three nights for £259 (up to a £782 value). Each package ensures you your own junior suite, a welcome gift, daily breakfast, and a dinner for two.

Now let us paint a picture of your stay at this stunning 17th-century mansion surrounded by Mediterranean gardens and ancient olive trees. Upon arrival, you will be shown up to your junior suite where your welcome gift of a bottle of local Provence wine awaits. Each suite is stylishly decorated in provincial furnishings and comes with your own private terrace with views of the Luberon mountains, a king-sized bed, satellite TV, minibar, room service, and tea and coffee making facilities.

Once you've had a chance to freshen up, head down to the hotel's beautiful restaurant to enjoy your dinner for two. Using fresh ingredients from the hotel garden, the expert chef specialises in terroir cuisine and serves beautifully plated Provence favourites. Ideal for the warm, balmy evenings, meals can be taken on the restaurant's terrace and are perfectly complemented with one of the bar's classic cocktails on the fountain-side patio.

During the daytime, relax by the Roman-esque pool or take a stroll through the surrounding town of Ménerbes where you can explore a 16th-century fort, potter around the quaint boutiques, or simply take a walk through the surrounding countryside and enjoy the stunning mountain views. Further afield in the region of Luberon, there's plenty of nature reserves, villages, historic sites, quirky museums, and even a place to brush up on your golfing.

This week's Escape has something for every palette so click 'Buy Now' because a year with no holidays to look forward to will be like watching paint dry.
