After two days you are switched off from the executive life excitement. It is pure relaxation at your own pace and time. Breakfast is outside till 10h00. Nice. It usually takes me 7-10 days to leave the executive actions behind but here in 2 days. You are in nature, great rooms, excellent service and a relaxing pool . And romantic... More

My wife and I had a really great stay at Mas de Capelou. The B & B was apparently a monastery a few hundred years ago. The building has classic stone lines and remnants of old stone fences. It's set next to a pear orchard and many large Sycamore and other types of mature trees. Every day we would pick... More

I had a lovely stay with my husband this summer at peaceful Mas de Capelou. We stayed in the Suite - Chapel which is brand new, very spacious and has both a modern and traditional touch. The Mas is also a great spot to enjoy local delicacies : breakfast prepared with local products served on a shaded terrace, local wines... More

Mas de Capelou really exceeded our expectations. This is a nicely restored farmhouse, situated on a pear orchard in very picturesque countryside just outside of Avignon. The rooms have high ceilings and large windows looking out on the orchard, fresh white walls and linens. Very light and sunny, in good taste. We also had a spacious walk-in shower with modern...

Mas de Capelou is a lovely chateau located in pretty countryside just outside Avignon. The grounds are pretty, with a nice pool, and comfortable, spacious rooms (Capeline). Although the building is old, everything inside is modern. Wi-Fi available, but spotty, although in process of improvement. It is a very good location for visiting Avignon and Chateauneuf du Pape, with fairly... More

Mas De Capelou is a wonderful and relaxing place. We had a fantastic experience there! Comfortable and spacious rooms, fresh breakfast every morning, swimming pool ( which was a plus for our two kids). Located just a few mns from Avignon, it is the perfect spot to scape from the crowds of the city of Avignon and enjoy the country... More

This country manor house is just a short drive from the walled city and yet in a peaceful rural setting. The rooms and apartments have been recently renovated with modern baths and comfortable beds. Breakfast is included and served on the patio, weather permitting. There is a heated pool and bar area that guests may use to picnic. We also... More

Look no further. Mas De Capelou is perfect. Positioned in the countryside, yet only 8 min by car to Avignon. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, it's also a bonus to have your own kitchen to prepare the baguettes of cheese and salad for your day trips. Enjoy the gardens with a book or relax and cool off in... More

What a delightful experience in this quiet, charming & comfortable mas. The owner could not have been more kind--- even making us h'or doeuvres to accompany the delicious wines from her cellar serving & serving us in her lovely garden. The breakfast was the best we had in France. Sorry we could not stay longer & use this as a... More

You would have to really try hard to fault anything at Mas de Capelou. I came from Canada with my friend for a week in France and stayed 3 days in le Mas de Capelou. This place is more luxurious than any place we tried in Paris. The apartment we stayed in (Clementine), was amazing! The owners, Jean-Pierre and Catherine... More
