The
Experience

It’s rare to meet such multi-talented, well-travelled, interesting people or so sincerely enthusiastic a welcome. As a skiing, mountain and travel guide, Hervé is the ultimate host regaling you with travel stories or seducing you with his guitar music and songs. Isabelle, another warm, friendly person, backs him up with her art, ethnic interior design and cooking talents. The 15th-century Provençal mas incorporates all their passions and talents, especially ‘travel’. Visiting the bedrooms is like taking a world tour from Bolivia and Peru to Vietnam and the Himalayas. The ethnic furnishings suit the ancient building – buddhas beneath giant old beams, handsome tribesmen by superb stone fireplace – as do Isabelle’s art and Hervé’s travel photographs. He will help you get under the skin of atmospheric Camargue, its wild white horses, black bulls, myriad birds and salt pans. Hike and climb with him, borrow the bikes and explore on your own, don’t miss Roman Arles. Return to plunge in the little pool, sit beside the turquoise Buddha, dine on Isabelle’s delicious cooking and retire to a glorious big bedroom.

Reviews

A tranquil and welcoming haven in glorious countryside. Beautifully designed with comfort and fascinating touches from the host's travels. Amazing attention to detail. Very comfortable beds and beautifully proportioned rooms. Guitar, games, books, comfy sofas & outside seating. So easy to just BE in this place because of the special touches everywhere. Thoughtful and warmest most welcoming of hosts, Herve and Isabelle couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast was incredible, with home made preserves, compote and cake etc. Highly recommend dinner - Isabelle is a fantastic cook!
