Historical Traveler Reviews Mas Pomona Cheval-Blanc
We booked Mas Pomona on the basis of its glowing Trip Advisor reviews and the photos on its website. We are SO happy that we did. We recently returned from a three night stay in the Grenadier room at Mas Pomona, and it was just fantastic. Each day begins with a simple but filling breakfast (rolls, croissants, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, and perfectly ripe strawberries) on the terrace or in the cozy dining room. After breakfast Marianne and David would make sure we had a good plan for the day and offered us tips and driving directions. In addition they made local restaurant reservations too (we especially enjoyed the Auberge de Cheval Blanc). The location is ideal -- none of the sights/villages we travelled to were more than a scenic 40 minute drive away. The Mas is decorated in a chic but simple style and co-owner Marianne's experience as an interior designer is evident! The rooms are huge with high ceilings and very comfortable beds. We slept SO well! Bathrooms are large with the all-important hairdryer! Marianne showed me all of the rooms except one, and they are all equally charming. Although we didn't get to use the pool, I can imagine how relaxing it must be to while away a hot summer day in one of the chaise lounges. My fingers are crossed that we can return this summer--there is still so much to see in this gorgeous area! I hesitated to write such a glowing review because we feel like we've found such a hidden gem, but Marianne and David deserve to reap the rewards from the hard work they obviously put into this very special place.
This review comes somewhat late...but is so necessary to say. Mas Pomona is the best B&B my wife and I have ever stayed at-clean, convenient location, attention to detail and two fantastic hosts- Marianne and David. They certainly would give any 4 star hotel a run for their money. The best part is that they're living proof of a dream come true-retire in the Provence. The room layouts and amenities were designed with care and at times made it hard to believe you were at a B&B. The location was perfect to explore just about any area of the Provence with most of the little hideaway towns no more than an hour away.
Book early, as Mas Pomona will not be a secret for long!
Thanks again Marianne and David for a great experience in the Provence!!!

A Gem of a holiday destination for all
We had the good fortune to visit Mas Pomona .The whole experience took our breath away. From the moment we arrived in the sun drenched courtyard we were at home with our own very attentive staff.
The public rooms are in great taste and compliment each other..the bedroom was one of the best we have ever stayed in with stunning views over the countryside.
We will return to our very own Mas Pomona..we need to return for spiritual and sensory nourishment...
a wonderful spot and so reasonable..
We will return and hope your guests realise how lucky they are
Good for golf
We stayed at Mas Pomona last fall and had a great time. The guest rooms are beautifully designed in local style and hosts were very welcoming. We chose Mas Pomona because we wanted to take the opportunity to sample a French golf course and it's close enough to several for us to take a shot at it. 9-hole Les Baux de Provence is about 25 minutes away and the impressive Pont Royal even closer. Both courses were in great condition and David and Marianne, the English/Swedish owners helped out with good advice on both directions and traps to watch for. The plane tree at the front of Mas Pomona is awesome, views are good, the dog is cute and the breakfasts filling. A real European experience.
Saw the excellent reviews for Mas Pomona on Tripadvisor, so a group of us, English golfers, decided to stay there for our yearly trophy .We were not disappointed. Mas Pomona is a charmingly restored old farm house just outside the village of Cheval Blanc with superb facilities great swimming pool, (unfortunaly to late in the year for us to use), large comfortable beds, and breakfasts taken in the summer kitchen, around a roaring fire,were perfect. The hosts, David and Marianne were a mine of information concerning the region. They suggested places to visit, shop and lunch for the non-golfers and for the golfers David arranged our itinerary, tee times and directions. Standard of the golf courses was also excellent and most were less than 30 minutes drive. Had some excellent meals out as we took advantage of David and Marianne's knowledge of local restaurants, and they were always happy to book for us. All in all a super experience and to be thoroughly recommended, whether you play golf or not. We are all returning in 2006.
A beautiful place with very spacious and staylish rooms. The hosts could not be more friendly and helpful. The B&B is located in a very convenient location, just at the heart of the most beautiful villages in Provence. Highly recommended, best value for money!!!
Mas Pomona - Stylish retreat
We stayed in this B&B in September 2005 and had a wonderful time. The house is very tastefully decorated (like something you would see in Vogue magazine!) and the rooms have plenty of space. The thick walls of the house make it pleasantly cool even when it is very hot outside. The pool has comfortable loungers around it so you could laze by the pool all day, but if you want to explore the area it is only about 5-10 minutes drive to the main autoroute, making it very easy to get around. There is also a fridge that guests can use - very handy for having cold drinks by the pool! It took us about an hour to drive from Nimes airport to the B&B. David and Marianne were the perfect hosts and it was lovely to have English speakers to tell us the best places to visit in the area.
Mas renovation is a hit
Recently opened in 2005, Mas Pomona has been lovingly & stylishly renovated by the owners David & Marianne. We stayed for five nights at the end of September and were won over by the care & attention to detail of the restoration and its great location.
Mas Pomona is wonderfully situated for all the major attractions of the region, and David & Marianne will point you in the right direction to enjoy the best of the region and its restaurants.
Definitely one to return to.
Beautiful restored farmhouse,fantastic evening meal,
Hosts David and Marianne could not do more for their guests.Must go back.

... Aix- the very same old Aix-en-Provence first founded in 123 BC by the ancient Romans. UGH!!!
It is brand new- standing where the tourism office used to be. But I digress...
After our guests left Mary, Jan, myself, Cathleen, Courtney and Claire all went for a fabulous meal at Drole d'Endroit. We had so much fun, the food was superb, the staff friendly and the company divine!
... lunch, Jan ordered the "salade des poulpes" octopus salad, and I had the "salade des filet de sardines"- fresh sardines. Of course, rose was the beverage of choice.
We then headed over to "the Rock" which was a little treacherous of a walk but well worth the trek.
... and charming. So we left. And headed to Menerbes. Surprisingly, that too was pretty, picturesque and charming. Hmmmmm. Seems to be a theme here.... With no particular purpose, but with as much of a purposeful stride as one can in flip flops, we stumbled up some more narrow cobbled streets. Then back down. Then back to the car park. It was then the heavens decided that there was still not enough lush landscape in Provence and once more the sky's emptied all ...
... against the undertoe to reach the shore again. Looking along the shore line we could see for kilometres and there were only two other couples in sight. Two hours passed quickly and we decided to pack up and get moving. We walked back across the beach, across the dyke to the lighthouse and then to the car before carefully making our way out. Our trek through the wetlands and swimming in the sea took most of the day, so as we made our way to the next sight the sun had begun ...
... the government subsidizes their lodging so that they only pay about 150 euros a month.
3. Hockey is played in Portugal, but on roller skates.
4. In Provence, there is a weather phenomenon which is called Mistral. It is strong winds that come up randomly and always last an odd number of days--one, three, five or seven. Never even numbers. There are about 100 days of Mistral winds per year in Provence. ...
