Reviewed 27 August 2013

This is a very pretty place to stay and we felt relaxed as soon as we got there. The staff are lovely and the room very comfortable. My only criticism is that for a hotel of this class (and price) perhaps they could have proper hangers in the wardrobe. A small gripe I know, but ......
The pool area is a great place to lounge about and the vibe is laid-back. We would definitely come back.

This is a very tranquil nicely outside the very touristy center of Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer. The service was superb and the food befitting a hotel of this ranking. The rooms were perhaps a bit less luxurious than you would expect in hotel of this class, but overall we had a very nice stay and would go back.

An amazing place to get away from it all and still feel at home. Luxury + charm + wilderness + 4-star service. Design is just the right mix of haphazard and chic, with a personnel that is attentive and friendly without being cloying. And the surroundings are magical - swans and ducks swim in the étang right out in front of your own personal patio in front of your "roulotte," white horses in the background, flocks of flamingos flying overhead....magical and otherworldy. Super-accommodating - mountain bikes available free of charge, massage on short notice, great library and areas to chill out in. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the roulotte facing the etang, it was fabulous and a really unique experience as well a...

If you are happy to be woken by honking swans, the call of flamingo or just the sound of silence then this is the place for you. A few km out of town so don't expect to walk "home" after dinner - but then you don't have to - Mas de la Fouque boasts a classy restaurant - we ate in both nights we stayed, accompanied by great regional wines. The only complaint was that (I think) our room was above the kitchen and it sounded like someone was practicing percussion on the kitchen utensils - ask for a room away from this part of the restaurant. Well appointed bathroom, BUT - nowhere to unpack your toiletries and showering in a bath was a novel experience - wet the body, soap and then rinse with hand held shower!! AND lighting in bathroom is not conducive to application of makeup. Very friendly staff and say hello to Marius the resident macaw!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the kitchen

Stayed here for 2 nights 20-22 October. It is a lovely place with very comfortable rooms and excellent food. Our room faced the lake, which I loved, but if you do not want to be woken by quacking ducks then a room facing the pool or other area may suit you better - I could sense that my husband would have preferred to have seen the ducks accompanied with a sauce on the second morning! The hotel is close to the town, and easily reached. I must also mention they have a beautiful parrot - Marius - in the lobby. He loves toys, and walnuts or brazil nuts to crack open - take him some! I also had an excellent massage at short notice.

Room Tip: Chose a room with an interior view if you do not want ducks and swans at your balcony

Really Eco-chic. Very beautiful environment, care of details, and attention to client (although we had feeling they don't like Italians). Disegn is nice and original.
A bit expensive the dinner (200 € for two persons).

Superb hotel, heartily recommended in a unique location in the Camargue.
The rooms have great character. (Ours had the marsh literally right outside our room).
The service is extremely attentive and personal. The ambiance is of understated informal luxury - not traditional Relais & Chateaux or flashy Saint-Tropez.

Previous comments refer to all manner of problems experienced by guests in the past. I must underscore that the management has changed and that in our experience, we did not observe any of these issues. The hotel is extremely clean and well-kept. The "mosquitoes in the pool" comments frankly had us fearing the worst. We found a crystal-clear heated pool (by far the most comfortable pool temperature in our trip through an array of top hotels in Southern France). The food is excellent and the hotel is an oasis of peace, some 3 km outside Saintes-Maries.

"Chapeau" to the very personable owner and his staff on a successful transformation!
