Situated in the countryside between Avignon and Arles, at the entrance of the stunning village of SAINT-REMY DE PROVENCE, Mas Bellevue welcomes you for a dive in the 'provençal' way of living...

The final week of May a friend and I spent 5 glorious days exploring the countryside surrounding Mas Bellevue. Daytrips to Les Beaux, Arles, Gordes, numerous markets, and a Mediterranean beach town were among the highlights. Jean, Hermine, and their daughter Sara were gracious hosts and so forthcoming with tips about the region. Mas Bellevue is a tranquil property surrounded by olive trees, vineyards and gentle sunshine. Each time I enjoy a croissant or smell the aroma of lavender I am instantly transported to May at Mas Bellevue. A return visit is clearly in my future... Merci beaucoup .

My husband and I stayed at Mas Bellevue for 4 days and 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. After long days of visiting the beautiful countryside, the villages and lots of walking, coming back to Mas Bellevue in the evenings is amazing. The views, the quiet, the wonderful odors in the air. The rooms are beautifully done and very clean; the breakfasts they serve are fresh and exactly what is needed before a day of touring and walking. Sarah and Stefan were our hosts during our stay and they were very helpful in guiding people on where to visit for the day and why and what to expect in any given direction. Their hospitality was the very best. We would highly recommend staying at Mas Bellevue. It's everything that everyone describes and more. San Francisco, California

We stayed for six nights at Mas Bellevue in August and what a wonderful time we had! Everything we had read about Mas Bellevue certainly lived up to its expectations. The location was very peaceful and ideal for relaxation due to the stunning and unspoilt view of the Alpilles and olive groves. Awakening each morning to the sweet scent of lavender and the chirping of cicadas was just heavenly. This accompanied with breakfast served by Hermine on the terrace with a wide variety of freshly picked fruit from her garden, honey, homemade jams, cheese/ham and breads/croissants made a perfect start to the day. The rooms were kept spotless and well climatized due to underfloor cooling. There was a fridge by the pool which included drinks for your disposal, but could also be used to store your own food. This was a perfect solution for those days when you just wanted to laze about and enjoy your local produce and wine at the dining table by the pool. Mas Bellevue is situated close to St. Remy, which offers a wide variety of shops/restaurants/little markets with ample car parking space. Sightseeing highlights nearby included Châteaux de Baux, Avignon, Pont Du Gard, Gordes and much more ... reachable within a maximum of an hour. Hermine and Jean were exceptional hosts and couldn’t do more for you when you asked. Thank you Hermine for your constant patience with us in our attempts to speak French and thank you Jean for your recommendations regarding dining/places to visit. Not forgetting Toy – the keeper of the house :) – who was a delight and kept the men occupied at the pool. Family Christians and McCullough (Bayrisch - Irish)

We arrived at Mas Bellevue after a day of traveling and immediately felt at home. Hermine welcomed us and showed us the grounds and our rooms we would be staying in for four days. It was all just what we imagined. We were in the pool in no time and all the travel stress washed away. Our rooms, service, and most of all, great conversations with the Menards made for a terrific visit. And then there is Toi (the estate dog) who really runs the place! She was such a charm during our entire visit. Without hesitation we plan on returning to Mas Bellevue when we return to Provence! It's the perfect hideaway and so close to everything. Even the gliding airport (which is a must do).

We stayed at Mas Bellvue for four nights in May 2011. It is heaven. The views ov the Alpennine mountains are stunning; the smells of the surrounding trees and flowers are wonderful; even the sound of the breeze hushing through the trees was remarkable and soothing. Two nights we brought food from the market for our evening meal because we wanted to be at Mas Bellvue rather than in a restaurant--and there are many restaurants nearby. The refreshing swimming pool (is was very hot during our stay), the delightful breakfast, and Toy, the very bright eccentric dog, added to the pleasure. Arle, Avignon, Orange with its remarkable Roman theatre, and other sites of interest are all an easy drive. We hope to return next year. I even risked bringing home their olive oil, and it made it with no problems.
