Interview By:

— How would you describe Le Mas de Peint in a few words?

Patricia: “Le Mas de Peint is an authentic boutique hotel situated in the wild part of the Camargue area in southern France. The estate is located on 550 hectares of land, which we use as a working farm to grow organic rice.

Our hotel is a former seventeenth-century farmhouse, which was turned into a small hotel in 1994. The original building is more than 400 years old, covered in ivy and surrounded by rice fields.”

— What was the idea of combining a hotel and a working farm?

Patricia: “At the beginning it was Monsieur Jacques Bon whose grandparents lived on the estate in the 1920s. After taking over the farm he started raising different animals such as sheep and then bulls.

Starting in the ‘80s the focus of Le Mas de Peint changed from regular tourism to offering group events. In 1994 Jacques’ second wife Lucille, an architect and designer, transformed the townhouse into a luxury hotel in order to receive individual guests.

After Monsieur Bon passed away in 2010, Madam Bon is still the manager of the hotel and her son Frédéric is in charge of the agricultural side.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at the hotel?

Patricia: “Le Mas de Peint is all about making our guests feel welcome and at home. When you arrive at the hotel you won’t find a front desk but instead you enter into a hall with an inviting seating area. Our restaurant is situated in the kitchen so that our guests can watch our chef prepare their food right in front of them. It makes them feel like they are at home but with their own personal chef.

What makes Le Mas de Peint special is that it is a farm turned into a hotel in a part of France that is not frequented much by regular tourism. Therefore we offer a ‘real experience’ that is very different from what most other hotels can provide.”

— Please tell us about the rooms and the suites.

Patricia: “The hotel has eight bedrooms, which are situated in the main building. They are individually decorated and have all of the amenities you would find in a 5-star hotel, such as air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, mini bars, bathrobes, etc.

In addition there are five junior suites all designed similarly to the old farmhouse. They are independently accessible, with private terraces and with their own entrance to the farm. Two of the junior suites offer a more modern atmosphere but the others are built in the traditional Camargue style.

My favourite is one of the modern junior suites. And inside the main house I really like room #7, which is a very cosy but elegant double-bed room.”

— What facilities and services are available to hotel guests?

Patricia: “We have an extraordinary restaurant that, during summer, offers lunch to be served by the swimming pool.

In terms of activities, we offer horse-back riding for all levels, even beginners. You can even do some cattle work if you find that exciting. The surrounding area here in the Camargue is perfect for hikes, bike trips or Jeep tours. We also have an ecological guide that can take you on bird watching tours. There are more than 300 species coming through this part of southern France.”
