“Charming,charming and delicious”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

A local St Remy traiteur told us to go...we almost didn't but so glad we did.
The decor is startlingly interesting,cutlery and crockery quirky but practical and only bettered by the delicious food.
The staff have just the right amount of pizzaz and know their product
.A delightfully delicious evening.
The night was complimented by a diner at another table sending us a bottle of wine from his vineyard Estabouchon of Baux.

Lovely welcome by Alice and what a beautiful setting close to St Remy. The rooms are very nicely decorated and a bit different than what you can usely expect in a normal hotel. The vibes of the former owner painter are still around and make this place feel like home if you are open for this style and attention to detail, especally the mosaique floor in the salon is an artwork on ts own!
Wonderful breakfast as well with fresh local products served in the garden.

Thumbs up to Alice and Bernard the chef for this very nice boutique hotel at st remy de Provence. We could not have booked a better place than the mas de l'amarine, with its artistic influence, contemporary interiors and above all personalized service by Alice, a great host.

You do feel at home over there, the dinner setting is authentic and so is the cuisine of Bernard who dazzled us with his "epaule d'agneau" ! Breakfast in the garden is a must and prepared with great care and freshness.

Comfort in room can however be improved with a full length mirror and a luggage rack stand for our suitcase.

Highly recommended and we'll be back as soon as possible!

A Alice & Bernard, nous vous souhaitons une bonne continuation, vous avez un superbe produit et un engagement professionnel pour une belle reussite! Que de bons souvenirs, Alex & Didier

Beautiful site, beautiful "Mas", terrible food and service. The " SPECTACULAIRE", this is the word the owner used to describe the dinner we were suppose to have when I called to be sure everything will be perfect for my clients. What a deception, the little appetizer was decent, the main dish was ridiculous, and the dessert was a joke. All this for a price which was indecent.
I picked this restaurant to give my guest an unforgettable experience of France!!
The owner was completely absent when we left.

Dear Madam,
All our apologizes if your unsual experience in Mas de L'amarine didn't reach your excpectations. It is unusual that our guest leave the place being unhappy (Espacially regardind the quality of food and the quality of service)
It would be a real pleasure for us to welcome you again in order to change that point of view. I am always at the restaurant from begining to the end of service, it may happen that I was at another table when you left.
I leave you my phone number in case you have any comment to transmit me directly and personnally, instead of making you experience a public affair. I am always available for my guests and I always listen to positive and negative comments, it helps us to improve.
Best Regards
Alice Monnier

My wife and I stayed three nights at Mas de l'Amerine only 1 mile outside of St Remy de Provence in France. I cannot say enough good things about the proprietors Alice and Chef Bernard!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family, with attention to all of our various travel needs. We hosted a dinner the first night for another family, and every detail was taken care of - the food was outstanding - creative interpretations of some classic dishes. My sole was the best I remember ever having. Being new to Provence, and Americans with a not-good command of French, Alice helped us navigate around to our various tourist locations and she was ALWAYS 100% right in her directions, and even suggested a few places we had not thought about that were AMAZING - including Cathedrale D'Images in Baux de Provence 20 minutes away - it is NOT to be missed if you are in the area! Mind blowing, really. Thank you Alice!
Our room was very clean and quiet - and since this was a very hot weekend I was concerned about the comfort - but now worries the AC worked fine. The bathrooms are luxurious and clean with every amenity, including a huge, I mean huge, walk-in shower which was a treat.
And the music! In the big dining room Alice has the finest and most eclectic collections of music - and is happy to take your suggestions too for the right mood.
The setting of this very small hotel (only five rooms!) is that of a quiet and luxurious family villa. I am 100% certain that I will stay here my next visit to Provence, and I will find a reason - business or personal - to come back in the next year to enjoy this totally magical place.
I was surprised at the good value, at check out time, when we got our bill. For this reason also I must return!

Room Tip: My big tip is simply "relax and let yourself be under the care of Alice and Chef Bernard"...

We were fortunate enough to be invited to a fashion show at Mas de l Amarine by local artist Willy Daterbriou. After the show we decided to stay for dinner and took at advantage of the per-fixed menu offered by Chef Barnard.The owner carefully went over the menu options with us since our French is somewhat limited . The four course meal was beautifully presented and served with a friendly manner and flair. It was one of our best meals in a month long trip to France. So delicious we made reservations to come back four days later. On our next visit we were taken on tour of the Mas. It is in a beautiful setting up on a hill right outside of St Remy, the decor is simply beautiful and tasteful. I loved the dinning room which overlooking the outside patio and on the other side built in to a old rock wall. Although we did not stay there the time we spent with the owner drinking wine in the cozy main room made us feel like we were long time friends.
