Hidden Garden retreatPosted Oct 28, 2016
Pros: This grand, gracious old hotel allows you to step back in time and enjoy the ambiance, as well as glimpse the wonderful collections of people who have lived here. Staff are quietly in the background, so it feels as if you are a guest of the owner, as you are encouraged to explore the library, chapel, and relax to read in a porch or in the garden. There is a surprise at every turn as you explore the gardens which seem ancient, and allow yourself to contemplate the history that surrounds you.
Cons: Many people would find this hotel "old" and lacking in conveniences, (no elevators) but historical suites as well as heated towel bars and deep baths tell the story of a prestigious past.
Location: The Mas is hidden away on a road leading to Arles and is a wonderful spot from which to explore this area. Easy access to Riverboats and train station

Character HotelPosted Sep 18, 2016 on Hotels
Quirky hotel with interesting decorations. About 10-15 mins drive from the centre of Arles. Accommodation fairly basic but acceptable. Nice grounds and swimming pool. Reception staff very helpful.

Shabby Chic?Posted Sep 12, 2016 on Hotels
The lady on reception was very pleasant and helpful. I was very disappointed with my room because it was nothing like the photos on the site. It was really shabby and in an annexe. The room was clean but it looked worn out and grubby.The room is expensive for what it is. As was the breakfast for 16 euros each, but it was a good breakfast.The room was in need of a make over. Some of the furniture was broken and all of it was old , perhaps this was meant to be chic. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The hotel gardens were a great feature with lots of little private areas for sitting out. The whole place does look really charming and individual. The swimming pool was potentially dangerous as the water was dark and it was impossible to see the bottom. Clearly a danger if a child or anyone fell in as they could not be seen. There are no signs to indicate the depth of the pool and it is very deep in most places. To be fair the pool is securely fenced. Parking was good and secure. The hotel is located several miles out of town along very narrow roads but it is well singposted.

Character boutique hotelPosted Aug 1, 2016
Pros: swimming pool, hotel decor
Cons: restaurant and lounge would have been nice to unwind after a long day touristing about town.
Location: Location is a bit out of the way, 15 minute drive from the core.
The hotel is a bit in the middle of nowhere, outside of town, but when we got there we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel seems like a converted estate home. It has a lot of character and charm. My wife really liked the look and decor of the hotel. It almost had a bit of a museum quality to it. There is a really nice swimming pool, larger than most hotels, which we really enjoyed after a hot day walking around in the Southern France sun. The rooms themselves are not large but not small either compared to NY or Paris standards. The a/c worked well and wifi was decent in the room. The only negatives about this hotel is that it has few amenities (aside from the pool) - ie. no restaurant or real lounge, and the location is a bit out of the way so having a car is a must if you are staying at this hotel. Other than that, the hotel is great. The property is absolutely beautiful.

Inherited property??Posted Jul 27, 2016
Pros: love the landscape, the art and style, the land, the quiet, and the "monastery" feel. Cons: my guess is this property was once great, and the owner may have passed and a son or daughter inherited the property. The gardens have clearly stopped being attended to, and upkeep have ceesed for some time. The beds need replacing, and new management needs to come in and take care of the place. It's turned into a "no upkeep cash cow". Shame, the place has huge potential.

Charming hotel off the beaten trackPosted May 28, 2016 on Hotels
Wonderful charming place! Artistic character! Old house surrounded by enchanting gardens with fountain pools and sculptures. Our room was called the Napoleon very apt as it was dressed in black and white brocade - but with new bathroom. Breakfast room was lovely. About 15 minutes drive from central Arles. A real treasure.

A stay in the garden of Eden with no serpentPosted May 12, 2016 on Hotels
One of the most beautiful locales for a hotel. Converted historic chapel with sumptuous gardens lovely pool and tennis court fountains and statues. All that and within easy driving distance from Arlrs and the Camargue. Don't miss this experience.

Great hotel to stay atPosted Oct 1, 2015 on Hotels
Fantastic room and very enjoyable stay. If you have a car, then this is a wonderful hotel to stay at. It's a little further out but definitely worth it.
