I spent one night in Marseille and had to get out for the remainder of my stay in that region. Instead I retreated into the countryside near Aix-en-provence at Le Mas d'Entremont, and it was a solid move I have to say.
Le Mas is a fantastic hotel, truly relaxing. Every member of the staff that I encountered was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel. The restaurant was superb. The grounds were a delight. If I return to Provence, I will stay at Le Mas.
An item that I found amusing was that when I was shopping on expedia's site, I saw several hotels that caught my eye. I saw a picture of a German Shepherd dog lounging at the front entrance of Le Mas d'Entremont and I said "That's the place for me." As I arrived at the hotel later, there the dog was, in the exact same pose and position as I saw on the expedia site. I asked jokingly if the dog was real, since it seemed odd. Over the course of my several days stay, I saw the dog move around, proving that it was real. But I found that I saw it in that position near the entrance as often as not, so no wonder. She was incredibly gentle by the way.
You need to have a car at this hotel though. Don't stay here unless you have a car or are prepared to either spend a fair amount on taxis, or to not leave.

We were surprised at how beautiful the hotel and grounds were. The hotel had country comforts although it was only minutes from the center of town. We dropped out bags, had no trouble parking and were off to see the town. We would highly recommend this hotel.

A friend from France recommended this hotel to us. The property is beautiful and well kept the only thing is that the road that leads you to the hotel has a lot of car dealerships and looks very commercial, but once you enter the property you feel secluded. The pool is nice and grounds are lush with a lot of green and a nice stream. I wish I was able to pick a room with a back view which had large windows, we were in a side room which had a view to the pool but had small windows. The front desk staff are not very friendly and don't seam happy when asked questions. But I would stay there again, next time in a room with the view of the back garden. The Restuarant was very nice too. Food was great.

Loved my room (419-- balcony, killer view). Well located about a 10 minute walk to the center city but limited parking on premises (garage nearby). Restaurant at hotel mostly ignored--too many wonderful restaurants in the open air. There's a pool next to an ancient wall that I never tried. Spa on premises
Our experience in this hotel was very disappointing. The setting and the inn are lovely. However, we did not feel comfortable or welcomed by the owners. We did not even have 4 pillows in the room and when we asked for 2 more were told, 'they are in the cabinet.' They were not and we did not have any left either when we asked. We only had 2 towels in the room, no hand towels or face cloths. No Kleenex and only ONE roll of toilet paper. When we asked for ice we were told 'no'... because we brought in our own beverages (wine / beer) and they would sell us wine and would not provide the ice to chill our own.
Lovely setting but it ended there. Nice breakfast provided on the terrace. Two nights was two too many.

This hotel is in the perfect location for walking the old town on Aix-en-Provence. The hotel is in a building that was built in the 1200's and is very beautiful. Our room was very comfortable and modern and the desk staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We were only there one night but I had wished we had stayed there longer.
