Mas de la Christine
Ranked #3 of 4 Maillane B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 September 2012

We recently stayed here on our first trip to the area. Glad we trusted the below reviews-- the mas was wonderful! Very peaceful atmosphere a couple of kms outside Maillane. No TV in the room, but who wants that? you're in Provence! Besides, who needs the morning news when you can hear the rooster instead? The location was very central for our trips to Les Baux and St. Remy, both just a few minutes away, as well as to Avignon, the Luberon towns, and Nimes, a little longer drives but in different directions.

We loved our room, l'arlesienne. The french doors are screened in, and we left them ajar at night to hear...well, nothing but the wind through the front-yard tree. Bathroom was recently renovated and very nice (hand-held showerhead in the tub, so make sure you're okay with that). Breakfast was delicious-- different breads with several different jams to accompany them. One morning, our host even brought out a special, homemade orange-flavored pastry as a treat. Also, this place makes its own apple juice. Awesome!

The hosts' English, while better than our French, was somewhat limited, and we were the only English speaking guests when we were there. Didn't mind a bit; all part of the experience. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to soak up Provence!

I have been visiting this wonderful place every year since 2004 (the first year it opened).
This mas-style Inn is set among the farms on the plains north of the Alpilles, near St, Remy de Provence. Except for the occasional crowing rooster and bahhing sheep, you could not hope for a more peaceful setting. There are no televisions in the rooms to destroy the tranquility (However, there is a TV in the Common room if one needs a TV "fix".) The location is perfectly situated for a centrally located "base of operations" to explore the immense variety of attractions in western Provence. Every year I come for a few days and explore a handful of fascinating places. This year I visited the Musee d'Arles Antique, St. Remy de Provence (the Wednesday market throughout the town is fantastic), Chateau Romanin (ancient Roman ruins and modern winery), Abbey of St. Roman (Beaucaire), Pont du Gard, Uzes, Pont Flavien (Roman bridge in St. Chamas). Other major nearby sites include Avignon, Arles, Les Baux, Nimes, Orange, the Luberon Valley, Camargue, and Aigues-Mortes, Montmajour, acqueduc du Barbegal (near Fontvielle). All are reachable within about an hour's drive. Several years ago I found I was even able to make a day trip to Carcassonne.The rooms are large by French standards, and very comfortable, with terre cotta tile floors, tile bathrooms, and big (firm but comfortable) beds. These are the best beds for my bad back. I sleep great here. Some of the things I like to do on my off days from frantic sightseeing are: relax by the pool, take a swim, walk the one lane dirt road out to the ancient stone shed and irrigation canal, or sit under the large plane and willow trees and read a book. This is also a great value because there is a small room where guests can do laundry and prepare meals (there is a refrigerator, hot plate, utensils, plates, etc.). This place has become one of my favorites. I plan on returning every year for as long as I can. It's that good.

Stayed for 3 nights in this house and all I can say it is: amazing !
Beautiful sunsets and in a heavenly place ( check photos).
Paied 70 Euros for a night with breakfast. Breakfast is nice and the owners very helpfull.
The rooms very comfortable and the bathroom clean and usefull.

Room Tip: Ask for room "Camargue". You will need a car, since the house is located outside the vill...

The sound of sheep bells passing the front door will be the memory for us.
Situated on a working farm in a lovely part of Provence.
The food served at the 'family' dinner was superb and the other guests - from the USA, France and Germany all communicated in various forms of their mother tongue. Great fun.
Suggestions to eat at L'oustelet and the pub in Maillane were well founded and highly recommended.
Breakfast was delicious - the jams and croissants were superb
The rooms were spotlessly clean.
We will return.
A hiiden gem indeed.
