This is a lovely bed and breakfast guest house not far from the medieval walled garden town of Aigues-Mortes. The surrounding countryside is uneventful, apart from the beaches which are lovely and sandy, but the grounds of Le Mas de Barbut are enchanting and just so charming. It is run by a married couple, who were very animated, entertaining, welcoming, and accommodating. We were visiting as part of a wedding party so it felt like one big family home, and I can't really say what it would feel like if you were visiting as a normal guest. You need to rent a car, no matter what. You can not get here or anywhere else in the area via taxis or public transport. But why would you, it's a wonderful area to explore and Le Mas de Barbut would make a perfect home base.
