At the Mas des Romarins we’re proud to be part of the Association “Maisons d’Hôtes de Provence” a network of the best, and most authentic bed and breakfasts in our region.
The association is independent and came into being 18 years ago, comprising around 20 Provencal Bed and Breakfasts. Prospective members are carefully vetted prior to joining the network to ensure they sign up to our ethos and charter, based on authenticity, warmth of welcome, levels of comfort and quality of the accommodation and beauty of the setting. Each member B&B has its own, individual charm which will leave an indelible and memorable impression on guests, for them to look back on fondly.
Why not come and discover our beautiful region of Provence, with its myriad of different landscapes and scents, from its seashores to its protected and verdant hillsides, Provence offers a wide range of things to see and do; our B&B members are well situated to help you on your journey of discovery, be it the rich cultural heritage of Provence, its coastline, flora and fauna, historic mediaeval villages, or even its cuisine… it all adds up to a delicious slice or Provencal life and relaxation.
“It was very pretty, this path through Provence. It meandered between sun-baked, stone walls next to which dangled large fig leaves, hedges of clementines, and centennial olive trees […] I heard the cicadas sing and on honey-coloured walls saw little grey, immobile lizards, mouths agape drinking in the sun”
My Father’s Glory – by Marcel Pagnol
The Association’s quality charter, its search for authenticity and unwavering belief in the charming Provencal lifestyle, all perfectly reflect our own values at the Mas des Romarins.
Provence is at the heart of all we do and feel, we’d even go as far to say that we’re in the heart of Provence with Provence well and truly in our heart of hearts. Our guesthouse is an old, stone-built Provençal style farmhouse and a former flower farm, located on the plain just below Fayence, a few minutes from the village, which can be clearly seen perched up on the hill. We have completely refurbished this grand old Dame with love and attention to detail, offering you a choice of four characterful and indulgent bedrooms. We believe our attention to detail and the small touches we add are what really sets us apart.
Others have confidence in us too, we recently won a quality award and are recognised as a Bed & Breakfast “de Référence” as well as having a cycle quality mark. As choice of accommodation grows it can be a challenge to find the right level of quality for the discerning traveller. That’s why « Chambres d’hôtes de référence » have put in place a quality charter, with values we sign up to validated by an audit and site visit to ensure we live up to our commitments. The same is true for our “Cyclists Welcome” accreditation, we’re pleased to meet all the requirements and commit to providing a warm welcome to cyclists touring our region, with specific cycle tour information, contact details of hire and repair partners nearby, offer cycle repair kits, safe cycle storage and much more…
If you’re looking to spend your stay mixing relaxation and indulgence whilst getting back to nature, the Mas des Romarins is the perfect location for you. We’ve 3.5 acres of grounds, that we’ve laid out in such a way as to surprise and delight you. We’ve a large pool with wrap-around decking with shade from fruit trees, a pool house with summer kitchen, a yoga platform that overlooks the stunning valley below and its vines, a pond teeming with life – frogs, fish, butterflies and dragonflies, a pétanque pitch for some authentic Provençal R&R and plenty of chill-out spaces for you to sit and enjoy a good book or a beautiful sunset.
Working closely with local artisan producers, respectful of our environment goes to the heart of what we value; we’d be delighted to share recommendations on wineries and olive groves to visit, our nearby restaurants offering a range of high quality, local and seasonal produce cooked with flair and skill. Why not dive into the Provencal style of living the “Dolce Vita”, to enjoy some of the many pleasures on offer locally: cycling, gliding, walking and hiking, water sports to name but a few, we literally have dozens of activities and places to visit to cater to all levels and tastes.
Whilst you are with us, why not take advantage of a bit of “you time” and pamper yourself? We’ve a treatment room and fully equipped hair salon in site, with various treatments, massages and hairstyling available, we even offer yoga classes and keep fit sessions several times a week.
When we began refurbishing the Mas des Romarins, we decided we wanted to get back to our true values – hospitality and warmth of welcome, ecology and doing our bit to protect our stunning local environment, attention to detail and the little touches and the discovery of Provence in all its splendour and from every angle. These are our core values that underpinned how we refurbished the house, but also continue to be our True North for the service we aspire to offer.
We hope you’ll agree after a stay with us at the Mas des Romarins!
