Fodor's Expert Review Mas de Peint

D36, Le Sambuc, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13200, France Fodor's Choice

Sitting on roughly 1,250 acres of Camargue ranch land, this exquisite 17th-century farmhouse may just offer the ultimate mas experience. A study in country elegance, the rooms—strewn throughout several buildings—have beautifully preserved 400-year-old beams, carefully polished stone floors, and creamy linen fabrics all tastefully complemented by brass beds, claw-foot bathtubs, and natural, soft Provençal colors. The Elegance suite, outfitted like a modern loft, has soaring ceilings, contemporary art, and an enormous bath with a separate tub and shower. The refined-rustic restaurant, charmingly decorated with starched linens, discreet lighting, paysanne chairs, and fresh roses on every table, is worth the trip even if you can't stay the night. Sophisticated specialties often rely on homegrown ingredients. The hotel also has a lovely pool, and is expert at setting up activities in the area, like horseback riding, hiking, and thrilling bird-watching expeditions with an expert.
