We spent 3 nights at Mas de Calabrun and it was very enjoyable. The surrounding area is picturesque, quiet, relaxing, with nothing but beautiful scenery and wildlife. The general feeling of the property is country/rugged (it is a farm). The rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are nicely done, and the A/C worked well. We had a terrace overlooking the pond, however due to the mosquitoes we spent most of our time by the pool where there were no mosquitoes. At night we had to hunt a few mosquitoes in our room, we sprayed ourselves with mosquito spray and had no bites. Given the surrounding wildlife I believe the mosquitoes are permanent residents and with a little planning the situation is manageable and tolerable. In addition to the mosquitoes, sand is often blown in, however the cleaning staff does a reasonable job keeping the floors of the rooms clean.
The pool area is large and has plenty of very comfortable lounge chairs. Don't miss watching the stars late at night. The staff re-arranged the chairs every evening and the pool area was nice by the time dinner was being served.
Dinner was absolutely delicious and it is well worth staying at the hotel with the half board option. Dinner was served either outside or inside, depending on weather (wind). We tried items from both the a la carte menu and half board pre set menu. The chef does a fantastic job. We were very happy/impressed with the quality, freshness and creativity of the food. Don't miss having an aperitif before dinner, the bar has a wide range of Provencal options. The wine selection is good and the prices are reasonable. As others have noted the hotel provides a great breakfast with lots of meats, cheese, fresh fruit, pastries, etc.
