This B&B is set in a quiet rural location, but just a 10 minute drive from the small town of Saint-Martin-de-Crau. Saint-Martin has may eating places to cater for all tastes and budgets. The farmhouse is furnished with many pieces of French 19th Century furniture which are sympathetic with the owners’ enthusiasm for Vincent van Gogh, who lived and painted... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mas for three nights recently. It had been recommended by a young friend who said it was charming. She was right -- lovely old renovated farmhouse about 20 minutes drive to Arles (easy drive). The grounds are lovely and we spent more time than we might normally sitting by the pool because it...

If you want city lights and traffic and lots of people, this is not the place for you. Mas Du Petit Grava is an amazing old farmhouse 15 minutes east of Arles in the middle of farms and pastures. In all our travels, this was one of most peaceful places we stayed. You definitely feel like you are staying in... More

We just spent five days at the Mas, and all four in our party voted it our favorite lodging on a trip filled with great stays. This wonderfully bucolic farmhouse feels out in the country, but is located strategically close to so many great places: Arles, Avignon, Cote-du-Rhone, Aix, Pont du Gard, and the Camarghe are all within about an...

Don't stay here unless you enjoy pleasant conversation with charming hosts, a nice country home, and lingering over breakfast with travelers from all over the world. Yes, it's a bit remote, but that's why you came to Provence, isn't it? If you want a modern city hotel with room service, this isn't your place. But if you travel to expand... More

Ike and Jim welcomed us into their home, making us feel like part of a family. The 18th century manor house and guest cottage have been comfortably updated and are filled with period pieces, Van Gogh prints, a massive library and sitting room available to guests. we found the bed to be very comfortable and the bedrooms and bathroom well...

Our family of 3 very comfortably stayed in the Cottage. We had a full kitchen, laundry facilities, clothes line, and full bathroom with immense tub. The rooms were peaceful and quiet, we all slept restfully throughout the night. Although the Mas is located in the quiet countryside, there is plenty to do each day in the surrounding villages in regard... More

It is difficult not to be redundant to the well deserved accolades of previous reviews. This is the place to stay if your needs, wants and expectations are 1. Have a home base to explore much of Provence on day trips. 2. Sleep in large, spacious, nicely furnished, clean and fresh bedrooms. 3. Be the guests of two informed, responsive,... More

This BnB was perfectly fine except for the funny feeling like you were intruding at your Great Uncles house... I was traveling with my Mother and we felt it was a bit strange from the start. The big old home smelt like it needed a good air out... Breakfast was taken in the dining room with the friendly hosts, which... More

Jim and Ike are the most gracious, lovely hosts you could get. My mother and I went for my 50th birthday and LOVED the Mas and Jim and Ike. Between Ike's cooking and Jim's wealth of knowledge about Van Gogh and the region in general and their willingness every day to help us with our planning and excellent restaurant selection,... More
