We fell in love with the Mas des Romarins before we even saw the house, as we arrived at the Chapelle de Notre Dame des Cyprès, we knew we were on to something special, then as we drove through the tiny hamlet and vineyards to get to the house itself, that feeling grew...
This part of Provence is stunning and we had been looking for a bigger place with land where we could set up as a quality, understated-luxury, back-to-nature bed and breakfast. The house had been empty for over 6 years and was in dire need of some TLC. The purchase completed, we moved into a tent on-site to begin much of the demolition work ourselves, it was a slow but hugely rewarding summer as this grand old dame began to reveal her true, former beauty.
We stripped back render to the original bare stone walls, and took out walls to create a more generous and coherent space. We re-wired, re-roofed, re-plumbed, re-painted and re-plastered just about everything. We put in 5 new bathrooms and 7 new toilets, a new septic tank and waste system as well as restoring the Veranda as the “orangerie” – our sunny bar area and beautiful breakfast room overlooking the pretty town of Fayence.
We hope you will love being here as much as we do...
Being part of our local community and protecting the rich architectural heritage of Fayence and Provence is very important to us. We’re proud to be members of Fayence Patrimoine which protects and restores local architectural gems.
In support of their work, we donate €5 per room, per night to them.
We decided we wanted to go back to what for us are real values. We’ve been fortunate to travel widely, both professionally and privately, and on each trip have noticed it was the little things and thoughtful touches that always stayed with us.
That is what underpins everything we have done during the restoration and development of all aspects of our service.
Our attention to detail and passion to make your stay perfect are what we think sets us apart.
We hope you’ll agree after a stay here.
