An introduction to Le Mas de Peint

How would you describe Le Mas de Peint in a nutshell?

Le Mas de Peint is an authentic boutique hotel situated in the wild part of the Camargue area in southern France. The estate is located on 550 hectares of land, which we use as a working farm to grow organic rice.

Our hotel is a former seventeenth-century farmhouse, which was turned into a small hotel in 1994. The original building is more than 400 years old, covered in ivy and surrounded by rice fields.

What was the idea of combining a hotel and a working farm?

At the beginning it was Monsieur Jacques Bon whose grandparents lived on the estate in the 1920s. After taking over the farm he started raising different animals such as sheep and then bulls.

Starting in the ‘80s the focus of Le Mas de Peint changed from regular tourism to offering group events. In 1994 Jacques’ second wife Lucille, an architect and designer, transformed the townhouse into a luxury hotel in order to receive individual guests.

After Monsieur Bon passed away in 2010, Madam Bon has beenl the manager of the hotel. Today it's their son Frédéric who has taken over management of the hotel with his wife, Clémence, and their two children.

To you personally, what is so special about the whole experience of staying at Le Mas de Peint?

What makes Le Mas de Peint special is that it is a farm turned into a hotel in a part of France that is not frequented much by regular tourism. Therefore we offer a ‘real experience’ that is very different from what most other hotels can provide. It is a unique place, a retreat. It’s hidden and very special as there are a lot of different ecosystems in existence here. Our guests can really immerse themselves into this world.

Le Mas de Peint rooms & rates

The hotel has eight bedrooms, which are situated in the main building. They are individually decorated and have all of the amenities you would find in a 5-star hotel, such as air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, mini bars, bathrobes, etc.

In addition there are six junior suites and one family suite all designed similarly to the old farmhouse. They are independently accessible, some with private terraces and with their own entrance to the farm. Two of the junior suites offer a more modern atmosphere but the others are built in the traditional Camargue style.

Le Mas de Peint is all about making our guests feel welcome and at home. When you arrive at the hotel you won’t find a front desk but instead you enter into a hall with an inviting seating area. We have an extraordinary restaurant that, during summer, offers lunch to be served by the swimming pool. It is situated in the kitchen so that our guests can watch our chef prepare their dinner right in front of them. It makes them feel like they are at home but with their own personal chef.

In terms of activities, we offer horse-back riding for all levels, even beginners. You can even do some cattle work if you find that exciting. The surrounding area here in the Camargue is perfect for hikes, bike trips or Jeep tours. We also have an ecological guide that can take you on bird watching tours. There are more than 300 species coming through this part of southern France.

Please note the weekly closure of the restaurant during saison:

From March 31st to June 16th and from September 10th to November 2nd, 2023: The restaurant is closed on Sunday evening, Monday all day and from Tuesday to Friday for lunch.

From June 17th to September 9th, 2023: The restaurant is closed on Sunday evening.

The hotel and restaurant close from November 2nd to March 29th.

Things to do in Provence & Arles

  • Art / Culture
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Horseback riding

I can recommend to try horse-back riding because it will enable guests to explore places that are usually much more difficult to get to. It will give them another impression of the area while being immersed in nature.

Otherwise, there’s also a very interesting golf spot in Provence, about a 40-minute drive away.

The beaches are all part of the Camargue and very pretty. If you look at a map, you’ll immediately see the triangle formed by the Camargue region. Some of these beaches are difficult to access, but even the ones that are more easily accessible will not be overly crowded.

There are long, sandy beaches with no construction at all. As we are on the eastern side there is no infrastructure but rather wild nature. If you prefer cocktails on the beach, you can go to the western side, which does offer nice bars and restaurants.

Le Mas de Peint reviews

5 of 5 stars
Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
I would rate our stay very highly - 5. We loved le Mas de Peint. Staff is very attentive but unobtrusive, rooms are charming. Food delicious They recommended we eat at La Chassagnette on the night their restaurant was closed and it was the best meal of our trip. My only quibble with them would be the there was a local festival going on the morning we left and I wish they had told us about it as we only happened by it and could see the very end and I would have LOVED to have been able to watch the whole thing. But that is only a small quibble. Everything else was lovely and the pool is one of the nicest I have ever been in. We also had a great morning out with a birding guide. If you do it, ask to go out before 8 AM, the earlier the better (if it is in summer).

The location of Le Mas de Peint

Camargue is an island, which is situated in between the big and small Rhône river and the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a very flat land that is characterized by horses, bulls and the farms. In the north you will find many vineyards as well. Not too many people live here due to the conditions. Most of the area is owned privately, but if you’re staying at Le Mas de Peint we can provide you with special access to these properties.

If you take the time to get to know the people of this region and their land, you will fall in love with the Camargue.

The closest village as well as the coast are only 25 kilometres away. In between the big and the small Rhône rivers there are 70 kilometres of wild, non-constructed sandy beaches. Arles is close-by, Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles are about 80 km away and Marseilles Provence airport about 70km.

Also within just one hour you can be in Avignon and can therefore easily take an entire day to explore the Provence region.

When is the best time to visit Provence?

Each season is very special. There are different birds for every season, including migrating birds. If you’re staying here in winter, you’ll find all sorts of ducks and herons. But overall it’s a very special wildlife area for any season.

In spring there will be less people in this part of France. On Easter weekend there is a special event centred around regional food traditions which you should not miss. And since everything is starting to bloom the whole area looks quite lovely during spring time.

In summer, you can make the most out of the swimming pool as well as the beaches. Many of our guests during the summer spend most of their time relaxing and enjoying the sun.

In the autumn, the colours are changing and the winter birds are coming in. During this time the light is the best if you are interested in doing some photography while you are staying with us.
