Le Mas de Peint          

 Le Sambuc 13200 Arles − France

Le Mas de Peint is a Deluxe farm house right in the middle of the Camargue which also produces some of the famous Camargue rice (more than 800 tons per year). The owner, Mr. Jacques Bon is also a well know "Manadier", which means, that he raises bulls for the arena game called “Course a la Cocarde”. This particular kind of wild long horn bulls are raised specially to participate in this game, which consists in taking the bull down by the horns. Lucille Bon, Jacques wife, is an architect and she designed and decorated every room and salon with the most exquisite taste. No wonder the property has been featured in magazines such as: Cote Sud - Elle - Homes & Gardens - Marie Claire - Joyce and Gault Millau. For example all the rooms are so well fitted, that the towels, all embossed with the name of the “mas”, are so thick and fluffy, that you would like to stick them in your suitcase and take them home! And you can, but not the ones in your room. They have them for sale at the reception! along with other souvenirs of the property.

Set in an unrivalled 550-hectare area, the Mas de Peint welcomes you in the heart of the Camargue. The guest rooms and suites of this 18th-century charming dwelling invite you to relax and live to the rhythm of the nature. They all boast an authentic decor.

Arles is the largest city in France with the surface area being 758km2. It is encircled by an environment of exceptional beauty: the banks of the Rhône river, the arid plains of Crau, the Alpilles and the untamed land of Camargue.

Once a metropolis of Roman Gaul, then Arles became a symbole of ardent Christianity as can be seen through the arena, the Alyscamps burial grounds, the amphitheater and the Roman baths of Constantin. Arles is now the gateway to Camargue, land of the Gypsies and meeting place of the Camargue cowboys, Today the ferias or bull runs and bull fights are held in this very same arena (12,000 seats) that was the scene of the Roman games in the first century!
