With many people planning their spring and summer breaks right now, I thought you may like to hear about a hotel I stayed in last year in the south of France,  and absolutely loved.

Le Mas de la Rose is ideally situated for visiting Avignon, Aix, and St Remy, while enjoying the calm of the countryside.  When I was there in October, I was with a client buying brocante and we found it a great spot for driving to various fairs and dealers.

The beautiful hotel was originally built in the 17th century as  farm buildings and  barns.  The soft colours of the stonework, surrounded by olive trees and fields of lavender are a perfect fit to the ideal Provençal property.

The grounds are extensive and very well maintained by a team of gardeners.   The area nearest the hotel’s restaurant is given over to a large potager which produces organic vegetables for the resident chef.

Guests are greeted by Fabienne Huppert, the tall and elegant French lady who owns and runs the hotel.  She and her staff are always on hand to keep their clients happy, be it tea in one of the sitting rooms, cold drinks by the pool or champagne on the terrace.

My visit in the fall was for work, but the calm and peaceful surroundings were wonderful to return to at the end of a long day, and the beauty of the grounds, especially in the morning mist, magically wiped out any fatigue.

The breakfasts were quite delicious, and in the evening, we either ate at the restaurant at the hotel, or made the short drive to Eygalières, where there were plenty of alternatives to choose from.

I certainly hope to go back here one day, not for work, but just to enjoy the area and make the most of  a totally relaxing stay.
