Fodor's Expert Review La Benvengudo

Les Baux-de-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13520, France

With manicured grounds shaded by tall pines, this graceful shuttered mas feels centuries old but was built to look that way some 30 years ago. Its heavy old beams, stone fireplace, and terra-cotta tiles enhance the homey, old-fashioned interior. Guest rooms are simple and elegant, with homey touches (throws on the settees, comfy cushions on the bed, large bathrooms), and views out over green lawns. The resident dogs greet you just before the friendly owners do. Dinner (prix-fixe Provençal-Mediterranean menu is €57) is served by the olive-shaded pool, or you can have a drink on the stone-tabled terrace.
