We stayed three nights at Mas Julien this May, 2013. The property offers great amenities of covered pool, great grounds, secure parking,gorgeous room and fine breakfast. Best of all is the superb service of host and owner Valere. While staying with him, we had a blow-out on our rental car. He was kind enough to canvas the local tire vendors to find a shop that carried the proper size. Even better, he found a set of used tires that could be purchased for a fraction of new and could be put on immediately so we could continue to enjoy the area with the least amount of disruption.
Besides this service to us beyond the norm, he is a great host, offering great insight to local restaurants and wineries, including ability to visit locations closed to the public. When we checked in, he provided maps and brochures for the area and his personal recommendations.
We stayed at 3 other B & B's on our 17 day trip and he was the ONLY proprietor that provided this much information from the outset.
The wifi was great all the time. The only possible smudge is the lack of in room TV but at all our other stays there was TV but it was always in French so the absence was not noticed.
Mas Julien should definitely be a top choice for any visit to the area!
