“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

What a perfect family trip! There were 8 of us, 3 generations of family, and there could be no better venue. The cozy accomodations, which were very modern with very clean bathrooms, the excellent cuisine of Provence by chef Thierry, and the warm professional service by Nina and all the staff--these are to say the least. Dining each morning and dinner under the huge shade trees with our kids running/playing during dinnertime with other visiting kids was complete relaxation and FUN. We loved the attention to detail, and loved more the very kind staff that was not overbearing. It was the most relaxing place, with top notch food included. This was a dream place in Provence. And perfect location near some wonderful villages and sites. Paradise found.

My wife and I reached Le Mas des Gres after a long day of driving, and after getting lost at night in Provence's maze of country roads, and we arrived just as dinner was being served in the hotel's pretty little dining room. Tired and frazzled, we threw our luggage in our room, trudged downstairs and proceeded to have one of the best meals of our lives, which included a pumpkin soup that was so good and so comforting that the day's tensions evaporated then and there. It would set a standard for the rest of our stay there: Impeccable.
The place is run by Nina and Thierry - Nina manages the place and Thierry cooks - and better and more discerning hosts cannot be imagined. When my wife spilled some diesel gas on her coat, Nina took the coat to a laundry in a nearby town, paid the bill and arranged for its pick-up. Again, this was typical of the service. As for the hotel itself, the grounds are well-kept, the interiors are spotless and handsomely decorated in the typical Provencal style and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The big buffet-style breakfasts are all one could ask for and the dinners, while not included in the room price, are worth the extra cost. Thierry is an inspired cook.
In short, we had no complaints, only a series of happy surprises. Our one disappointment? Because we were driving and had to catch a flight from Rome, we had to cut our stay at Le Mas des Gres short because of striking French unions and the concern of running out of gas. We would have happily stayed longer, much longer.

We booked a cycling holiday for our 25th wedding anniversary - something we never thought we would enjoy but great for sightseeing and exercise. Just so happened that the night of our anniversary we were booked in to Le Mas Des Gres - and we couldn't have planned anything more special. So well looked after and what great food and hospitality. I am hoping that we will be back for our 30th -

we first went to Mas des Gres in July 09 and planned to stay only a night or two on our way down to the coast as we had just got engaged in Paris and wanted to explore the southern coast , but when we got to Mas des Gres we decided to stay here for our whole holiday!!!!!
Nina and Thierry are wonderful hosts and when the hotel was booked out for our last couple of nights they got us a room with friends Pierre and Magda who have a newly renovated room to let out at there home which was just wonderful and worth staying at too
Thierry is the chef and the food is just out of this world. Both my Fiance and I tried things we would never normally eat and were not disappointed by any of it
Breakfast and dinner are served outside most of the time which is a lovely shaded area
The wine list is worth a mention as we never had a bad wine either
Nina is a great hostess and extremely helpful and they both go out of their way to help their guests
All the rooms are of good size (we've seen them all), very comfortable and air conditioned and they have a character to them without being too fancy
The pool is a good size and plenty of seats and loungers for guests to top up their tans
The hotel is within easy reach of tons of great places to visit such as Gordes, Abbey De Senanque (a must for the lavender fields) and Isle sur la sorgue( a lovely Market town with nice shops and cafes and a beautiful church at its heart
and its within easy reach of avignon, nimes and marseilles for traveling in
We loved this place so much half way through our trip we asked Thierry and Nina if it would be possible for us to actually marry on the grounds and they were more than willing to and have been very helpful with pointing us to the right people localy for everything we need for our wedding
our wedding will be the 3rd time in a year that we have stayed here ,I think that says it all!

We wanted a small, out of the way place, which was relaxing, not stressed with kids and served great food.

Nina and Thierry and their staff delivered this.

Decent sized room (9), adequate for our needs, not spectacular but more than adequate.

Everything else was in a league of its own. Fantastic feeel about the place, really relaxed and welcoming. Nothing is too much effort. Without exception the staff were amazing.

From the owners, who speak fluent English, French, German, to the waitresses, gardener and cleaners everything was very welcoming.

The food was amazing. The breakfast was very laid back and substantial, no real strict times, exactly what you want when on holiday.

The evening meals were the highlight. Served up in the outdoors they were all stunning meals (we stayed for 5 nights).

You must stay at this place, if you are a couple or taking the family.

Cannot wait to go back

We chose this place by mistake as we thought we were booking Le Mas d'Aigret further south but I have to say it was a good mistake. The hotel was everything we had hoped for and more. It was one of te only places we found that had been able to offer a room that accommodated a family with four children, everyone else splitting us into two or more rooms.
Nina nad Thierry are very welcoming and laid back, children are definitely welcome and looked after. the only point that if your children are faddy about food then be awre that there is not a menu but you have what everyone is having that day. We didn't ask for anything else but I'm sure they could help out. Lunch was wonderful buffet of hors d'ouvre which was exactly what we wanted on a hot summers day. You eat outside under the beautiful mulberry trees - the perfect provencal scene. The children were able to run around while we relaxed and everyone was happy. Dinner was included in the room price as was breakfast. Both were memorable. the swimmin pool is very welcoming with comfortable furniture. All very clean and elegant. The house is decorated to a very high standard and very well maintained. there is secure parking also.

Everyone seemed very happy there. It is a real find and we are looking forward to going bck some day.

We stayed on the weekend so we could go to the Sunday antique market at Il sur La Sorgue. The accomodations couldn't have been nicer! The place was as neat as a pin! The grounds and terrace were lovely and enjoyed having petit dejeuner outside. The dinners were cooked by the husband and chef were outstanding! The staff was very accomodating and friendly. Parking on the grounds was closed off with gates and very secure. The rooms were tastefully decorated. The views and location was very countrylike and quiet.
