Reviewed 20 June 2016

Fantastic find in the middle of the Côte du Rhone region of Provence. The old farmhouse had such great charm with it's beautiful stone walls dating back centuries, adjacent to beautiful vineyards and a great view of the mountains. The hospitality of Charles and Andree was great, they both speak fluent English and have great recommendations for the region. We were not able to do the wine tour with Charles on this trip, but have given us a reason to return. The breakfast served on a outside table for 9€ per person was very good and worth the price, and included fresh croissants, fresh fruit and yogurt, along with coffee, tea and juice. The room was very comfortable, having stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment (Mistral) for 3 people. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention their lovely dog Auguste who kept us entertained during our stay. The only thing I would give a heads up on is finding the farmhouse from the main road. It is on a very narrow dirt road with a dogleg left under a small bridge, but well worth it once you arrive at Mas du close de l'Escarrat

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mistral apartment which was big enough for 3 people or a family of 4 maximum. It in...

My two friends and myself had a wonderful 3-day stay at Charles and Andree's lovely place. It was inspiring to wake up everyday to the view of the serene and beautiful area Provence. It is located nearby Avignon and Orange, very easy to find if you have a GPS. A Carrefour is 15 minutes away, which is very convenient.

The room is unbelievable clean and cozy, with a well-equipped kitchen, a lovely living room and comfortable beds for three of us. After a long day visiting those popular cities nearby we felt so relaxed to be back.

Both Charles and Andree are extremely friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the time here, and I am sure you will love it too.

Thanks to Charles and thanks to Andree for the great time we had in Provence!

Me and my fiancée stayed here for 3 nights, and we cannot recommend it enough. The hosts are incredibly nice and helpful, and the place is stunningly beautiful and authentic. We rented a car from the airport in Marseilles, and used it to travel around avignon and the Jonquiere area, but even without a GPS the hosts have provided an excellent route guidance.
We decided to do the 5 stop winetour with Charles, and it was even better than we had hoped for. If you do decide to stay here we must stress that you really should book a winetour. It is an all-included tour to some of the best wineyards, starting with an introduction to wine tasting with Charles. The wind was quite strong when we visited, but even in march the temperature reached 19 degrees celsius so it was warm enough to enjoy our stay.
There are only so many words I can use to describe this place, but I can sum it up to "The perfect vacation stay in Provence".

We had the delight of once again staying at Charles and Andree’s lovely mas but this time would like to thank Charles for his utmost help by taking an ENTIRE afternoon to accompany us to the Avignon police station after our goods were stolen from our car in Avignon, (we inadvertently pressed the unlock remote and walked away without double checking.)

We were parked just inside and along the Avignon wall. This street does not have many pedestrians around. It was also foolish of us to ever leave valuables in the car anyway.

Charles waited with us for a very long time in the police station and also assisted us to fill the police report, which was needed for insurance purposes.

We very much appreciate this effort that Charles made and also the helpfulness of the police in our situation.

Dear Linda it was a pleasure to host you again at le Mas. You are coming from so far and deliberately chose to book another time at our place. Your fidelity and kindness were very well deserving the time I have spent with you to try to make your bad experience in Avignon a little less unpleasant. No doubt that I have done for you what you would have done for me in the same circumstances.
We have opened the great bottle of Champagne that you so kindly offered me when our son was there and had a toast to your health.
Merci Linda !

Charles and Andree were absolutely wonderful and gracious hosts at their farmhouse. They treated us like family. It is a beautiful location very close to all of the great attractions in Provence. Our room and kitchen were wonderful-lots of hot water and air-conditioning.
Charles and Andree were most helpful in directing us towards the Roman ruins I needed to see for the classes I teach. Also, Charles is an expert in wine and we spent the day with him touring wineries. This was a quiet, serene, and comfortable oasis amid all of the touring we did in Provence. There is a great grocery store nearby to stock your kitchen for your meals or you can enjoy a wonderful breakfast served by Andree and then enjoy lunch and dinner in the many restaurants in the area. Our hosts pointed us towards some fine eating establishments. There is a bike/running path adjacent to the property which was great for exercising.
if you plan to be in Provence, this is a spot!

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor - "Ouveze" was wonderful!

Jeff and Glenda, it has been such a pleasure to read your great review ! I can see that as opposed to the previous review you have been enjoying a lot the kindness of our dogs !
Indeed, Jonquières is in a very centrical location in Provence which makes it easy to explore the most interesting spots.
Thank you also for your very nice comments about the wine tour. We do hope to see you again at le Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat !

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located in Jonquieres 6 miles from Orange antique theater, and 20 minutes only from Avignon in the heart of Popes's Provence and northern sunny Vaucluse, the Mas du Clos de l'Escarrat is a lovely old stone farm house, of typical Provencal style, which incorporates buildings dating back to the 17 th Century. This bed and breakfast has been carefully renovated to preserve its authentic, rustic character and charm, without compromising the need for modern comfort in all the accomodations. Breathtaking view over Ventoux Mount. Comfortable self-catering accommodations. Lots of tourism and visits in Provence. Beautiful landscapes and lavender fields in the Luberon area. These accommodations are located near Avignon, Chateauneuf du Pape. Tour the wine route with us and enjoy unforgettable wine tasting of Cotes du Rhone wines including the prestigious Chateauneuf du Pape. Charles and Andree purchased le Mas (meaning farm in Provencal 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 Andree, 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. Andree, 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 ! Titus (Lab) and Auguste (American cocker) will welcome you in their very friendly manner.... ... more   less
