Mas Saint Michel
Ranked #1 of 12 Rognes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Often the pictures posted on the website are, shall we say, somewhat optimistic. Not in this case. In reality Mas St. Michel is even more beautiful. But let me start at the beginning.

My family and I arrived for a week of rediscovering the Provence and had chosen Mas St. Michel because:
1. The Rognes location is ideal for day trips in Provence.
2. The mas had received such rave reviews on TripAdvisor.

We weren't disappointed. The owners are lovely people and have a wonderful property which was completely at our disposal. The kids spent a lot of time at the pool while mom and dad relaxed and read on our private terrace of which we actually had two. Our rooms were what we were hoping for. Spacious, decorated in the Provence style, and we had full facilities including washing machine and dishwasher if necessary.

I'm writing these comments sitting on the terrace of my own home as we returned from Mas St. Michel and Provence yesterday. We would love to be there right now...

Arriving at Le Mas Saint Michel was a huge relief after a "black Saturday" on the road. Welcomed by friendly Vicenta and Jacques who gave us instantly a good feeling. The chilled rosé wine was the perfect welcome present. Almost speechless looking at the wonderful drive lane, house and surrounding. La Joliette looked even nicer in real than on the website. Both bed- and bathroom were very clean, nice and extremely comfortable. Our son liked his first floor pretty much. Only minutes after our arrival sitting outside at 9pm having our dinner, of course cheese and wine. All present equipment as well as wifi worked perfect. Swimming pool area: TOP, pétanque area: TOP. Hospitality in general: TOP.
Unfortunately we only stayed one week.

Vicenta & Jacques, thanks and please continue as you are doing.

Kind regards,

Martin, Carine, Nathan

We spent ten days at Le Mas Saint Michel and enjoyed every day of it. Jacques and Vicenta are wonderful and considerate hosts, and Vicenta provided lots of valuable information about places to visit when one is travelling with two small children (ages 2 and 5). Our room was the Bastidon which lay right next to the swimming pool but at the same time it also had a nice secluded terrace. Perfect for a family with children. We also heartily recommend the breakfast, and we hope to come back one day again to enjoy the Provence sun and the hospitality of Jacques and Vicenta.

It was our first time in Provence and staying at Le Mas Saint Michel was the perfect introduction. Vicenta and Jacques are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they really care about their guests experience. We stayed on a B&B basis in 'La Joliette'. The room is spotlessly clean and the bed is comfortable with good quality linens. Thoughtful touches such as a bowl of marzipan sweets and tea making facilities went down very well. The property is rurally located so very quiet and peaceful. Vicenta's breakfasts are superb - fresh croissants and bread like you will never taste in the UK. We also had use of a kitchen and dining area, which was again spotless and well equipped for basic cooking should you want to. There are two patios outside adjacent to each other, one is used by Le Pointe Rouge and the other by La Joliette. There is plenty of reading material in the property together with a very useful detailed map of the area. Vicenta also provides additional information, where best to visit, recommendations on parking and which restaurants are worth trying - all very useful if on a short stay as we were.

Vicenta and Jacques are the perfect hosts at this lovely chambres d'hôtes. Set in beautiful grounds this is a delightful setting for a terrific holiday in S. France. Both Vicenta and Jacques speak excellent English and are happy to make suggestions for the best things to see, do and eat in the local area. Our room was immaculately clean and comfortable and all the linen smelled gorgeous too. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, breads and croissants collected every morning from the local boulangerie and served on our own private patio. Vicenta's delicious home made preserves are as sweet as she is and my only hesitation in recommending this is that we might not be able to get in next time we want to visit. You will not find a warmer welcome anywhere.

We have had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful B&B for two nights in June. Unfortunately we had only scheduled for two nights - had we known how beautiful it is, we would have booked more nights.
The Mas St Michel is a beautiful B&B in the typical Provence - Style. The owners live in the same house and rent out two rooms and one appartemet. Each room has its own style and charm: we stayed in the Pointe Rouge - a spacious and charming room on the ground floor.

The location is gorgeous: Set in the middle of beautiful gardens and fields you can literally feel "peace and quiet" Still only a few minutes drive to some beautiful provencal villages.
There is a large pool with comfy sun loungers , and the rooms have their own terrace. Breakfast is served on your private terrace - simply tell the host when you want to have breakfast and it will be ready for you on your terrace the next morning on time.
That brings us to the most impressive part: The owners (Vicenza and Jaques) enjoy having guests so much that you really feel like a personal guest. Vicenza provides you with detailed and very useful information about everything (restaurants, shops, sights, etc), she speaks very good english and gives great advice depending on your priorities. We decided we want to go to the sea - Vicenza recommended a trip to Cassis and the calanques and this turned out to be a great idea!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come again next year - but we will stay for longer then!

My husband and I just celebrated our 20th wedding aniversary with10 day trip to Provence. Of all the places we stayed, Mas St. Michel was by far our favorite. We stayed 4 nights in La Pointe Rouge room witch was decorated with beautiful antique furniture and charming Provençal fabric. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom large and well equipped. We had traditional breakfast (different types of bread, french pastries, fresh juice, fruit, yogurt and coffee) on a terrace overlooking beautiful surrounding ( vineyards, olive grove, lavender and perfectly manicured lawn). The hosts Vicenta and Jaques were very friendly and helpful in planning our daily itinerary. They gave valuable advice on places to eat, buy cheep gas, parking etc. This is an ideal, central location from which to explore Provence (close to Aix, villages, coast - Cassis, Luberon mountains). I wish we stayed here longer. It was unforgettable, romantic, quiet and most magical place to visit!
