“Average guesthouse in Provence”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

We spent a few nights here as part of a week long stay in Provence. Rooms were nice enough and well-located but hosts did not seem to be terribly attentive. Francis was great on the first day but then had commitments elsewhere. His wife Catherine did not have the same level of interest or level of attentiveness. Large dogs outside made it difficult for our children to go outside and enjoy the yard and surrounding fields. Breakfasts were "measured" (i.e. exactly one croissant each and limited amount of coffee). Overall, an OK place but we have stayed in better guesthouses in the area! Not the best value for money by any means.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B in L'isle sur la sorgue for 4 nights. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming. In fact when we weren't certain how to find the place because our gps was not working, the owner Francis, stayed on the phone with me until we arrived . He was in the middle of a golf game and took the time to help us find his home.
This is a beautiful property with gardens, a pool and lovely rooms. We stayed in the chambre bleue which had windows that open up to the courtyard and created a nice breeze at night. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. The bathroom had a tub shower and a window as well. The breakfast is simple with tea or coffee, orange juice, a croissant, baguette if desired and jam. Francis would check in with us every morning and evening to see if he could assist us with plans or directions. He also made reservations for us at a local restaurant which turned out to be our favorite, called "Restaurant Carre Rond". It is right on the canal in town and was wonderful. The pool was a welcome addition at the end of a day of visiting the area. As far as the dogs go, they were not a problem at all. The doberman was old and hobbled over to see us only when we called to him. The other dog was friendly as well. L'isle sur la sorgue is a great town and the location of this B&B was perfect. We could go into town when we wanted, but relax at the B& B if we wanted too. One night we had stopped at a winery and that night we shared a bottle of fabulous wine out in the courtyard . It was lovely. In reading the other reviews, the only thing that I can think of is that the person who had so many issues with this place was the type that wouldn't be pleased by anything. I would encourage all travellers to stay at B&B Buscalts and say hello to Francis and his wonderful wife, Cathy for us.

Having previously been to L'Isle Sur la Sorgue several times, this is a choice we will make again. The location is 5 minutes by car from the center of town. For the hardy, you can also walk. It has a nice outdoor space with a pool. The rooms are charming and a good size. Same for the bathrooms. The host, Francis, is a charming man who happens to speak fluent English. Reading the other reviews about the dog, etc., I must say that the dog in question is old and wouldn't hurt anyone or anything. We travel with a dog and they were fine together. The house dog barks at first but has no bite. Perhaps it was the guests dog that was the problem. Even though it is on a main road there is little traffic or noise during the night. The only thing it lacked was shampoo and that is a small thing to us. Breakfast is simple but that's the style of a B&B. We did like the croissants a lot. In its category this is a very good choice. We will return.

This b&b is in a great location for us just on the outskirts of L'Isle Sur La Sorgue. L'Isle Sur la Sorgue is famous for its antiques and waterwheels and has a great market on Sundays. It is a lovely place to visit during the week when it is quieter. The Mas is near to lots of smaller villages in the hills and lots of places that provide activities for all the family - mini golf, canoeing, riding etc. This place worked really well for us. A lovely room. Beautifully decorated, comfortable bed with duvet, lovely bathroom and great outlook. Nice breakfast in the morning. I would recommend definitely recommend this b&b.
