... I guess you could compare it to Philidelphia, but with a much nicer texture - and likely to be more healthly! The goats cheese on the other hand was quite special, soft centered goats cheese with the expected flavour and texture!
Back on the road and another hour of winding roads and straight roads and we got to Banon, which seemed to be the centre of the lavender fields! Down a little back road we found the local cheese co-op where they make 2500 cheeses per ...
... she looked, so she didn't have many friends when she was younger. But then when she got older, she became a beautiful red head (you're welcome Trish). Then the oldest Anna chirped in, "yeah, sorry Tara, but she is prettier than you". Thanks. Anyways, when I was telling this story, everyone was laughing at how I described poor wittle twisha, while two of the girls were agreeing that they wouldn't be her friend either... But then the middle child, Magdalena, ...
... Du Gard for picnic lunch.
It was very hot and we enjoyed a shaded picnic on a canope along the river below Pont Du Gard on the right bank. The aquaduct was very special as it has 3 levels and carried water in Roman days to cities of Nimes, Orange etc.
... place there are 15,200 people living here but the have an annual visitation of 6.5million for a religious pilgrimage to try to see Virgin Mary who is said to have appeared 18 times at Lourdes .....

30 minute bus trip to the olive vineyards, had to turn back just out of the town because the "Baltimores" got left behind. Stan the Canadian made such fun of it we were in stitches saying he was surprised it wasn't the kiwis missing haha. The tour of the olive oil production was fascinating and the tasting superb. Bought some oil and dips to bring home, ...

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.
