Mas Dom Pater is down a dusty road between two patches of farmland lovingly tended, but upon arrival, you're met by a green, lush spread of trees, pool, grapes, figs, apricots, and a welcoming atmosphere.
The main farm house has several rooms, plus there are a few additional buildings with rooms. Tho I didn't get to see them, we felt we had the best of the lot -- ours was upstairs in the main house (through the owner's kitchen - a real slice of French life!) We had a separate bath plus shower AND a private terrace with pergola where we sat at night listening to cicadas and watching the moon. Tho our room didn't have a TV, we didn't mind, we were too busy reading our guide books and catching up on the day's events.
It was a sincere delight meeting other guests over breakfast, from all parts of the world. You'll be out in the sun eating at a long table under a magnificent fig tree that dates back to 1712. We'd scoff up a lavish breakfast of yogurt, croissants with honey, delicious coffee, sometimes eggs -- and promptly disappear for the day to sightsee, returning around 5 or 6 for a much-needed and satisfying dip in the pool.
You have to have a car here. It's definitely not walking distance to town but it's easy to navigate around St. Remy. We used a few landmarks to make sure we didn't miss our turn (a fluorescent sign for old doors)!
This is NOT a four-star hotel with cushy amenities. It is, however, a charming, lovely place to stay that perfectly combines the modern and old. The owners are very sweet (Mrs. Bruno even did our laundry after a week's stay!) and we found it a quiet and unique atmosphere for our first stay in Provence. St. Remy has much to offer, and this is another layer in a most fascinating part of the world.
