Description: Welcome to the rebellious alchemy of a modern inn Savour every moment of a rare and simple truth, a thousand thoughtful attentions and a host of sophisticated details. The old farmhouse, a timeless artwork set amid century-old trees and the sunny scents of countless flowers, invites you to discover its creative originality. The house, decorated by artist Roger Bezombes in the 1950s, is a riot of colourful mosaics and unusual curiosities. Like the painter's chosen palette, the three rooms and two spacious suites are bright and richly sensual. Each has its own elegant personality to fire a guest's imagination. The restaurant too is a magic place. Bernard's originality and humour infuse his spontaneous cuisine, inspired by the quality of the local produce he uses. The carefully-selected wines are gems that add a scintillating final touch. We cultivate the arts of hospitality and sharing.

especially fabulous for an aficionado of modern art. the hospitality just couldn't be better as the owner (?) is a magical fairy who writes each nite's menu in a huge book which she props on a chair while you're enjoying drinks and explains the menu in detail so each guest can order perfectly. then down to the amazing garden for dinner with each table and its setting a work of art. gotta go there!

We enjoyed the ambience of this restaurant and the attentive staff and beautiful setting.The food was good although could have done with more seasoning but was well worth the visit.
It looked a lovely place to stay with a great pool and modern art surroundings

What a beautiful evening we had last night with friends at Mas De L'Marine

A nice mix of modern in an ancient place but very classy hospitality from the lady who owns the place.

Appero under the trees before dinner - Domain Guilbert Rose' which is made around the corner and the easiest drinking wine on the planet. Afterwards dinner on the terrace which was very well presented , super tastey and clearly used genuine fresh ingredients.

A real treat to have this place in St Remy - just please don't run out of ice .

Thanks to the people behind this place - it must take a lot of effort to deliver this quality but it's appreciated.

This restaurant was recommended by the Le Chateau des Alpilles
.
A beautiful stone farmhouse previous owned by a famous French artist was recently converted into a first class restaurant and "private" bed and breakfast by a cute French couple.

Down a country road a mile from St. Remy sits this oasis. Greeted by a young French, energetic women who spoke perfect English. Her bubbly personality was charming and invigorating. She escorted us to her lovely garden where we had cocktails outdoors in the early evening. During cocktails the women described the menu which she writes by hand every evening in a large book. It was unique and very special. It also highlighted that the chef changes the menu everyday and only cooks what he can pick and buy fresh. We choose wild asparagus which was picked from the fields that afternoon.

The dinning room is shockingly unique. Decorated with eclectic modern art. The contrast between the "wild" art and the classic French cooking was interesting and stimulated a lot of conversation.

The meal was heavenly and the service first rate. After dinner we met the chef/husband who doesn't speak any English but clearly is a Michelin chef in the making.

I highly recommend this secret oasis, for couples and groups who want fine french food in a private oasis filled with modern art.

We settled for the set lunch which was both interesting and also superbly executed. At 35Euros (excluding wine) it is great value for money n Saint Rémy which is expensive compared to other places in the area. service is friendly and professional.
One of the best of around 100 places tp eat. The dining room is quirky and fun and eating out in the warmer months is also a beautiful experience with views over the ALpilles hills. Great find.
