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.

We had heard that the Saturday market in Arles was the largest in the region and it certainly was good. We didn't linger today over the non-food stalls although there were plenty of them. Rather we did some fairly targeted shopping for the lunch table. The most striking thing for me was what seemed like acres of garlic surrounded by various kinds of shallots and onions. Next, the variety of oysters and shellfish and ...
We left early for the 2 hr drive to Gigondas. We are relaxed after our village day yesterday and looking forward to the new experiences our 'weekend vacance' offers. Predominantly motorway but still scenic as the landscape changes from the Languedoc to Provence. Still romantic old shells of castles and Maisons and even farm barns in the paddocks and vineyards. We pass Nimes, drove through the ancient streets of Orange, up past the d'entilles mountains under the shadow of ...
Thursday. Weather warm, humid. travellers lazy. Today we finalised our plans for the rest of the holiday, which involved pouring over maps, emails, visit to Avis Car rental and much discussion. All done. At the suggestion of John and Jo R we took the little tourist train/tram/tractor around the town, discovering that there was way more here than we realised. (Thanks J & J). Avignon really is a special place. We went back to a restaurant we enjoyed on ...
... piece and a Ravel encore and both were fabulous performers.
We had booked for dinner at L'heure Bleue By Yoha for 8.30 to 9.00 believing that the trip back from Loumarin would be slow. I nailed it, and we were back by 8.20. At least I though I had nailed it. I accelerated through every 20m stretch of road, whipped around every bend including the 300 degree tight bend mid way up the gorge and flew up the mountain, only to find that a ...
... it a couple of times when we're dropping luggage off at the hotel. Definitely not something you could or would do at home though! C'est Francaise!
We ended up going back out of this area and parking under a bridge where a few other cars and buses had also parked. It took about 5 - 10 minutes to walk back into the area we had driven around. It was Bastille day today and I assume that would explain why there were lots of people walking up and down the streets ...
