A short walk from the historical center of Tarascon ; strategically located a the foot of the Alpilles and the entrance to the Camargue, a few kilometers from Saint Remy de Provence, Avignon, Arles and Nîmes, you will find “Le Mas de Lilou” ; a gorgeous old farm house (called Mas in the Region) dating from the 19th century and completely renovated to provide happiness and comfort to those who stay there.
The house is set in a magnificent garden (4.5 thousand square meters) with a pool, large expanses of shaded green lawn and even a small orchard. The perfect setting to relax or share an « aperitif » (the French word for a drink before dinner) after a long day of exploring the area.
This is where after a few decades abroad, owner Catherine Burtonboy decided to settle and realize an old dream: to open a B&B dedicated to those in love with stress free living and great cuisine. The first thing that will catch your attention when you arrive will no doubt be the bright, very large and welcoming kitchen. It may be the most important room of the house; where you will enjoy breakfast if the weather does not allow for an outdoor setting. It is also where the magic of fresh local produce, spices and herbs takes place to become fabulous dishes that are shared every Thursday night by those looking for a great meal among friends.
It is also in this fabulous room that on Saturday and Wednesday afternoons, small groups of people meet to learn the secrets and techniques of Le Mas de Lilou’s great dishes (see Cooking Classes)
