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

We were a family of 4, with two chilldren and Jim was excellent at being friendly... More

Jim and Ike are superb innkeepers. The mas is filled with their books and collections; it is their home, as well as a B and B. Our room was spacious and comfortable; it looked down on a fruit-laden persimmon tree. We enjoyed the old-fashioned deep tub--great for soaking after all the sightseeing. The library is impressive; I read Van Gogh's... More

This 200+ year old farmhouse converted into a small B & B is a simply wonderful place to stay while you explore Provence. The owners, Jim and Ike, could not have been more charming, pleasant and helpful. Jim is a Van Gogh-phile who knows a phenomenal amount about the artist and is willing to share it all. He even took... More

Mas Du Petit Grava is my favorite place I have stayed in all my travels! The rooms are lovely the location is central to many sights and the hosts are wonderful. The food was fresh out of their garden and Jim and Ike were wonderful hosts.
