Gite du Petit Mandon-Arles-Crau-Camargue: a house for 2/3 people spa
average rating of 4.96875 based on 32 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was lovely and very well equipped. There was also a beautiful garden to be enjoyed and the hot tub was a real bonus. Jacqui, the owner was lovely - a perfect host. He provided us with much helpful information on the local area; his list of places to see and local restaurants to visit was tremendous. Our one week stay was not enough!

An idyllic spot on the edge of Arles: beautiful, very quiet and with easy access to many interests

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and very well-equipped. The hosts have lived next door for much of their lives; they are helpful and very pleasant people. Form the house it is very easy to reach many likely target destinations: the historic centres of Arles, Nimes, Pont du Gard and Avignon; the Camargue, the Luberon, and, slightly further afield, Aix-en-Provence. The weather is more or less guaranteed to be very warm and sunny; in fact it may be a bit too warm in the very height of summer. We thoroughly recommend these two Gites and notice that many people pay return visits.

This gite is 5 minutes outside of Arles and provides a lovely, quiet experience. Jean Jaques and Nicole are excellent hosts and very gracious and generous with their time and suggestions. The only thing that was not perfect was the Internet connection. However, our hosts invited us to come to their house and garden whenever we needed to connect. For guests who are older, the bedroom upstairs may be challenging. We loved our stay here!

A happy visit to beautiful Provence

  • 5 of 5

I rented the studio apartment for a week in March 2016. I loved staying there and would happily stay there again. The property is clean, comfortable and quiet. And the location is very convenient to Arles so you can easily enjoy the best of both worlds according to your mood.

The kitchen had everything I needed to fix my meals, as well as coffee, dish detergent, paper towels and other items I usually need to buy before I can settle in at a holiday rental. I was very comfortable very quickly!

My first visit to Arles in 2005 was too brief, so I was happy to wander the streets and take in the sights at a comfortable pace. And the surrounding countryside (Les Baux, Les Alpilles, La Camargue, Le Pont du Gard...) offers innumerable vistas and historical connections that continually remind you that you're in France.

What made this visit to Arles even more special, though, was the owner's parents. They live next door, yet a tall hedge ensures your privacy. And while they keep their distance, they're always ready to help if you have a question or problem.

Besides showering me with a bagful of treats on my arrival, they provided a detailed list of recommended attractions and restaurants. In my experience, recommending restaurants is a tricky business, but I enjoyed every restaurant Jean Jacques suggested. Beyond that, he's simply what we Americans would call a "great guy" -- knowledgeable, helpful, generous, warm, funny and simply a pleasure to be around. He knows a little about wine, too!

Directions to the property were very clear. Access is easy. There is ample parking behind a locked gate.

There are still many places near Arles that I want to see. I will have to come back!

Perfekter Urlaub bei der Familie Mangold

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung im Landhaus ist super gemütlich und sehr sauber. Wir wurden mit einem Gastgeschenk herzlich empfangen. Die Familie spricht sehr gut Englisch, so dass die Kommunikation sehr gut funktionierte. Auch Insider Tipps für die Umgebung lagen bereit. Der Garten mit den Oliven- und Feigenbäumen und der Whirlpool sorgten für Entspannung. Die Ferienwohnung liegt nur 10min mit dem Auto von Arles Innenstadt entfernt, auch mit dem Fahrrad gelangt man schnell dort hin. Ein Bäcker mit frischem Baguette und Pain au Chocolats ;-) ist gleich in der Nähe. Die Camargue mit den Flamingos, Stieren und Pferden liegt nur 30min mit dem Auto entfernt. Das Meer lädt mit seinem feinen Sandstrand auch zum Baden und Verweilen ein. Die Berge (Luberon) und die Lavendelfelder sind mit dem Auto ebenfalls relativ schnell (<1h) zu erreichen. Wir haben uns pudelwohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit gern wieder Urlaub in der Region und in diesem Ferienhaus machen. Vielen Dank für die tolle Gastfreundschaft. Liebe Grüße an Soleil (die liebe Katze).

Very nice Appartment in Arles

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this very nice appartment located in a small house in a large, beautiful and calm garden. The flat was very clean, the equipment was new and included a lot of things we did not expect, such as a washing machine and dishwasher (+ detergent). We were well taken care of by the nice neighbors and their cat who run the flat. The apartment is located in a rural residential area a 10 min. drive outside Arles. A car is needed. Questions prior to out trip were anwered immediately. We hope to come back again soon.
