Not the best

  • 1 of 5

To start with a positive Fabienne and Ronald are welcoming hosts and will provide good local information on restaurants etc. But I'm afraid that's where the good points stop as regarding the gite itself.

The surrounding area is wonderful and well worth visiting if you are interested in nature and wildlife but I would recommend you look at other properties also.

So I booked this on looking at the photos which seem to convey it was spacious and had very good reviews, But be aware it is very small inside and the mezzanine bedroom is really claustrophobic, a very low ceiling and steep stairs that is not pleasant at all to sleep in. No air con either.

If that was the only negative it would be manageable but I'm afraid there's more.

There are 4 gites and ours was at the back with a ditch in front of the balcony. It is advertised as up to 4 people but I'm glad there were only 2 of us. The balcony had a cheap plastic table, 3 chairs, and 1 sun lounger, (no cushions provided) For 4 People?

Inside the gite apart from the TV it seems everything has been done on the cheap. A cheap kettle with cord attached that just boils away? Well there is one here. Like to hang some clothes in a wardrobe? Sorry no wardrobe here but there is some space in the bathroom above the cleaning equipment. No thanks.

Yes a BBQ was available for use and it looked as though it would ideal as we like outdoor eating. Another problem, apart from no charcoal provided there is no outside table to sit at! Do we just cook outside and take back to our small room? No idea thus never used. Would the people from other Gites on the loungers outside be happy when we started a BBQ?. Of course not.

Finally be aware that If you are unable to clean the property just before leaving as was our case in that we had to leave at 7.00 am, and there is a ban on any noise at this time, which I fully understand, you will loose a substantial part of your deposit. I told Fabienne that it was no problem to brush and always leave rental properties as we find. But that's not good enough. It must be left sanitized! (whatever that means) we were told. We were shown some small print in a contract but as our French is only average we didn't understand and was impossible to do anyway. So read the small print.

Sorry to be negative but we have stayed in far superior properties at similar cost throughout Europe over many years.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Having holidayed extensively in France for many years this is now one of our favourite locations. I think we had avoided the area because it was so flat but what a mistake this was....there is so much to enjoy here.

Accommodation was perfect for the two of us with sleeping on mezanine floor an added attraction of the overall gite. We were constantly entertained by the various moods of the pond and even got up to see the spectacular sun rises! Our hosts Fabienne & Ronald were first class providing us with relevant information saving time which is so precious during our holiday. On their recommendation we had several fantastic eating experiences and purchased fish fresh off the boat, indeed the fisherman had a problem keeping it from flipping off the weighing scales!

We also rented their bicycles which certainly clocked up the kilometres! We took the boat trip from the port to le petit Rhone which again was great value. The immediate area round the gite is very beautiful where we were able to just walk out on various tracks away from traffic etc, we also had the option of walking into town or indeed to the beach. There is just so much to do here, one is killed for choice! I cannot recommend this gite strongly enough, it is an absolute gem of a find!

Séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 nuits dans ce gite très agreable. Les propriétaires, Fabienne et Ronald, nous ont accueillis chaleureusement et ont été très prévenants à notre égard: ils étaient très disponibles et leurs conseils ont été précieux. Ils étaient présents et discrets à la fois.

Le gîte est bien entretenu, propre, bien équipé et possède un jardin clôturé (qui a été très apprécié par nos deux cheins). Il est en pleine nature et en même temps bien situé à quelques minutes de voiture de Saintes-Maries-de-la-mer.

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de nos vacances au Mas Lou Faro.

Un séjour très plaisant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé dans "La chambre rose", un gite très agréable et fonctionnel dont le balcon donne sur un étang. C'était un vrai plaisir de pouvoir se prélasser sur ce balcon en observant les canards ainsi qu'une aigrette, un héron, et des sternes qui venaient pêcher sur l'étang. Les propriétaires Fabienne et Ronald sont vraiment charmants et vous réservent un accueil très chaleureux.

Nous avons passé un séjour vraiment très agréable et nous y retournerons très certainement.

Einzigartige Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist einfach aber sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Es ist alles vorhanden, was es braucht. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl. Das Gastgeberehepaar ist sehr freundlich, sie nahmen sich ausführlich Zeit und gaben uns wertvolle Informationen. Die Lage am Teich ist einzigartig und die Umgebung lädt zum Spazieren und Beobachten von Tieren geradezu ein. Zum Meer ist es nicht weit. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und fühlten uns sehr wohl.

ABSOLUMENT RIEN A REDIRE. FABIENNE ET RONALD sont des hôtes parfaits souriants disponibles sans être pesants. Nous ont conseillés une belle balade pour voir des oiseaux tout près du gite rien a voir avec les parcs nous etions seuls avec les oiseaux. La location en bord d'étang est très agréable calme avec un paysage parfait de camargue tout cela à deux pas des SAINTES. Nous y retournerons c'est certain j'en parlerai autour de moi (mais pas trop je veux qu'il me reste toujours un peu de place dans ce coin de paradis.) je plaisante

Amical bonjour à FABIENNE et RONALD de la part de Dominique OLIVIER
