Wonderful house in southern France

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, quiet country house, not far from Arles. The couple that own the house are lovely people, easy to work with and very respectful of their guests needs. The house is beautifully furnished in French country style, comes with a pool, and is in a perfect spot if you like to take a walk or bike ride or run through the provencal countryside, or enjoy a bottle of French wine beneath a huge field of stars. You could even ask Claude, an enthusiastic astronomy buff, to show you the constellations or point his telescope at Saturn's rings. While the house is in the countryside, you are also within walking distance of three different bakeries and easy driving distance to Arles. Mas Ballot is extremely comfortable, with a well-stocked kitchen, a large living room, dining room, and three bedrooms, one of which has a balcony. My family and I have stayed there three different times: in 2005, 2006, and 2009. The house and the location just seems to get better each time.

A great family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week's stay at this delightful Provencal home. The 'hosts' were lovely, they live next door and were more than willing to answer any questions we had.

We were 4 adults and 3 young children (aged 3, 16 months & 7 weeks!) and the place was great for a young family. Complete with travel cots, highchair, a few games and outdoor toys. There was also a horse, donkey & goats in the field nextdoor for the kids to visit.

We enjoyed to log fire in the cool November evenings.

There was lots to do in the area & we enjoyed being close to Arles yet more in the 'countryside'

Très bonne

  • 5 of 5

Une demeure ancienne et rustique pleine de charme, dans un cadre agréable, au calme, mais facilement accessible, idéalement située à quelques kilomètres d'Arles pour explorer les Alpilles et la Camargue. Accueil chaleureux des propriétaires, attentifs à faciliter et à rendre agréable notre séjour.

Perfect place for relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

Mas Ballot situated 8 kilometers east of Arles provides a perfect accommodation for our family of 6. Fitted with antique furniture in local provincial style it provides plenty of room even for bigger parties and makes you feel at home immediately.

Dany and Claude Suc as nice and helpful hosts supplied information about places to go not only on their well structured website and assorted leaflets available in the dining room, but also in their very warm welcome and personal conversations.

In the kitchen you find everything to prepare nice meals and the dishwasher helps to make them even more enjoyable. The living room invites for relaxing autumn evenings with a fire crackling and the good internet connection enables you to send your holiday impressions directy to your loved ones at home.

A perfect place for relaxing holidays and being back in Germany we already think about coming back...

Very nice family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The owners were friendly and accommodating. The only thing we missed were tea towels. Thank you, if we come your way again, we would definitely stay.
