We offer accommodation in our large provençal mas (farmhouse). The prime ingredients are comfort, with large luxury airconditioned
bedrooms with top quality beds and linen and private baths, quality of welcome and personal availability of the hosts, a prime
quiet location in beautiful countyside with easy access by road, rail and air, a broad cultural environment with lots of conversation,
books and a grand piano in tune, and outstanding local cooking for the evening meal. In English this goes by a variety of names:
bed and breakfast
, country house accommodation, lodge, homestay; the main differences with
a luxury hotel are size, usually only three bedrooms in use, and personal contact with the hosts, particularly at the dinner table.
Most guests are on holiday, but more and more businness people are starting to appreciate the restful undemanding atmosphere. In the large
gardens we have a tennis court, a 12x6m pool, a good croquet lawn, and terraces providing privacy and quiet all day. At the centre of Provence,
towns such as Aix
, Avignon, Arles
and Marseille are within 45 minutes. The coast is close: Camargue, Estaque, Calanques, Cassis.
The interior includes the Alpilles (St Rémy, les Baux, Eygalières), the Luberon, the Mont Ventoux, Cézanne country including the montagne
Ste Victoire, the Etoile, the Sainte Baume. Theatre is almost exclusively in French (Avignon and Marseille) but opera lovers adore the
Aix festival and there is chamber music all the year round with major international festivals at Salon de Provence, La Roque d'Antheron,
the Luberon, Saint Laurent les Arbres.
Our pricing policy is fair to single people and encourages children, for whom there is usually no charege
We are English speakers, but we can also manage French, German, Italian, Malay and Tamil
