Mas de Cocagne means "a village in paradise."

Le Mas de Cocagne was the last stop on a driving tour that my husband I took during the last two week of September in Provence. While the Mas is lovely, the staff and management were a delight. Especially helpful and appropriately friendly was Ali, who offered helpful information on the area. The hotel is next to the town of Sts. Marie de la Mer and the edge of the Camargue, making it convenient to the sites of this area. There isn't a lot around the hotel, so you need a car to get to the town or the parks or to places to eat or shop. The hotel is small and cozy. Our room was on the small side, but very comfortable, with the best bathroom of our trip. The Mas is on one level; all of the rooms have covered sitting areas in front of the rooms. They have a heated swimming pool (good for lap swimming) and hot tub just outside the reception and breakfast area.The Mas serves a full buffet breakfast, not just a continental. We found it to be on the expensive side, but in a very pleasant dining room, with a helpful, friendly staff. If "Le Mas de Concagne" means "a village in paradise", it lives up to its name.
