B&B and Wine Tasting Tours in Provence

Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat

"If Charles & Andrée Barail's B&B in a 17th-century stone mas surrounded by unruly flowerbeds, lawns, and gravel terraces shaded by mature trees isn't your Provencal rural fantasy come to life, then you've got the wrong picture."

History of le Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat

Charles and Andrée purchased le Mas (meaning farm in Provençal vernacular) at the end of 1995.  The old farm, dating from the XVIIth Century, was nearly a ruin, so they decided to completely renovate it, transforming it into a Bed and Breakfast with self-catering units. By mid-1996, the first two studios, "Ventoux" and "Montmirail", were ready for rental.  A crystal clear swimming pool was installed in the winter of 1997, featuring a diatom powder natural filtration system with salt water electrolysis purification. Under the careful eye of Andrée, the garden has become a tranquil place with additional flowers attracting birds and cicadas.  As more and more guests asked for accommodations at le Mas du Clos de l’Escarrat, two more rooms, "Ouveze" and "Mistral",  were added in 1999. Andrée, with her architecture and design background has kept updating the decor of the rooms with her exquisite taste.  Recently, she has worked on the design for the exterior walls of le Mas. Charles began leading wine tasting tours in 2002 to special wineries, which has delighted many guests and has proven to be popular !
