    Christine and Ruud are the best hosts. They ensured every last detail was taken care of and presented in the most wonderful fashion. We got lost on a run and Christine drove out to look for us. The gardens were magnificent and added to the amazing breakfast. The room, the bathroom, the pool, all could not have been better. Each night, they helped us with dinner plans and the meals were beyond expectation. We would never stay anywhere else in Provence as the location was ideal. In the countryside, but very near the autoroute and central to all of Provence. We also loved Duran and Luna, their two very sweet dogs. We wish we could keep this place our own secret, but it just is too good to be kept.

    Having to leave.

    We stayed 7 nights in the delightful St. Remy Jr. Suite. Outstanding amenities. The grounds are beautiful. We loved the wonderful breakfasts and enjoyed the privacy of the pool area. Rudd and Christine were delightful and wonderful hosts offering local travel/dining advice and meeting our every need with a smile. St. Remy de Provence and Avignon are both a short drive away. We highly recommend Villa Mas St.Jean.

    The wi-fi was occasionally off line for some reason in our suite.

    Everything!!! Ruud and Christina could not have been more accommodating. We had dinner all 3 evenings with them and enjoyed the cuisine both in quality and varied menus. Would definitely recommend the villa to anyone.

    Initial directions to the villa were a little confusing but we found it .

    Very nice place! Perfect garden with pool, great room, good breakfast. Friendly dogs who made us miss our pets less. If you don't like dogs, you might find them too interested in the guests.

    Ruud and Christine, both from Holland, bought this country home a decade or so ago, single-handedly run it as a country inn much of the year, and rent out the entire home in the summer. They are very friendly, helpful and attentive and happy to engage in conversation. Their two dogs and cat are equally friendly. We felt very much like we were visiting family with home in the countryside of Provence, and Villa Mas St Jean was our group’s favorite stay on our trip through various regions of France. The rooms are simply decorated, very comfortable and offer nice bathroom fixtures and amenities. The dining room has one, large communal table where you can meet and chat with other guests (there are few, since there are only a few rooms) over breakfast. If you request it at least one day in advance, Ruud will cook up a dinner for you. They advertise this as a 3-course meal, but we requested a lighter supper, and they brought us a very tasty and healthy appetizer, fresh fish entrée and fruit tart dessert, all homemade. The grounds of the Villa are just gorgeous, with a large lawn dotted with various trees, flowers and a swimming pool. Sit on the outdoor patio and enjoy the view, or stroll through the garden. Villa Mas St Jean is a PERFECT location if you plan to visit the various villages of Provence near Avignon. You can head West to Noves, down to St. Remy de Provence (where you should be sure to walk the pedestrian streets in the ver center to visit the shops and restaurants), then on to Les Baux de Provence, a hillside castle and village that is a bit touristy but very scenic. On another day, head Northeast to the Luberon region, where you can visit popular, gorgeous villages including Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux and Ménebres. (L’Isle Sur la Sorgue is a natural first stop but is more of a tourist trap, but you may enjoy the antique shops on the South side of the river in the center of town.) Some complain that Villa Mas St Jean is difficult to find.

    We had a wonderful stay at Villa Mas St Jean. The place is beautiful, breakfast was delicious (especially the home baked cakes!), the pool was epic and Ruud and Christina struck just the right balance between being helpful and friendly and being unobtrusive. Would happily stay in this place permanently if this was an option!

    Our hosts Christine and Rudd could not do enough for us , they made us feel so welcome we didn't want to leave them. Their home is beautifully appointed and the beds were cozy and comfortable. Villa Mas St Jean made our first visit to Provence truly memorable ... Thank you

    This is all the space I get? Wow, have to make it short then... Stop looking and book. This is one of those rare of rarest places that you will have in your memory when you are toothless and in your wheel chair and will make you smile even though everyone around you will think "there goes Grandpa with that stupid smile again". Thank you Ruud and Christine!!

    Very large house with extremely large garden. The room is large with very comfort bed. The host are friendly and easy to talk with, and they did offer complimentary wine for their guest to enjoy. The breakfast has a wide variety to choose from.

    The house is slightly out from Noves, it is not easy to find if you does not have a gps with you. But this give you a more quiet place to stay in

    I would absolutely recommend Villa Mas St Jean to anyone. This place is absolutely perfect in every way. The location is very close to many of the various historic villages and towns in the area. The facilities are extremely comfortable. The house is very beautiful, very well decorated by the owners. Ruud and Christine are wonderful hosts, attentive, gracious and warm. They provided us with driving instructions and useful advises. We loved the breakfast with fresh croissants, brioch and bread loaves, cold cuts of ham etc, as well as cheeses and yoghurt. Tea, coffee, and mineral water were available all the time. We felt relaxed and welcome in this lovely home.

    Rudd and Christina were the perfect hosts and I truly believe that makes all the difference. They made us all feel completely at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms were beautiful and I can't say too much about the countryside because for 3 days we just sat around the pool and BBQ'd! But actually that was exactly what we wanted and needed - time to just be, time to sit still, to play, to have fun, to relax and to be a family. Perfect.

    We visited four similar establishments in Provence in the course of our holiday, all of them rated highly by booking.com reviewers, but this was clearly the best. The hosts have exactly the right balance of friendliness and discretion to make their guests feel comfortable, and the house, garden and pool are extremely well designed. Breakfast and the optional evening meal were excellent. There are two dogs and three cats, but since they are friendly, clean and quiet they are no problem.

    Fantastic Mas in the centre of the Provence, run by really nice and friendly Dutch couple. Great pool with lots of facilities, including possible use by guests of the outdoor kitchen. Several terraces and good French breakfast.

    The fact that we had to leave after our stay at Mas St Jean.

    Great family feel, owners Ruud and Christine make you really feel at home Nice location, nice area, nice comfy swimming pool

    Nothing was bad actually. The only thing I have read on other sites is the beds that were too soft. I slept good on them but I can understand that criticism, the matrasses are indeed soft.
