Charming Boutique guesthouse
It is the story of an old farmhouse, hardy and proud, nestling in the warmth of the Provence. Hundred-year old oak and nettle- trees shield it from prying eyes and from the effervescent energy that reigns in the streets of St-Remy-de-Provence.
The park is home to harmonious shaded terraces and scented secret gardens. A refreshing pond emerges at the corner of a small path, where an abundance of lotus flowers and goldfishes find a home. By the heated pool, under the invigorating shade of trees, feet in the water, the hours pass gently by.
An artist House
In the 1950s its privileged location seduced Roger Bezombes, a dashingly colorful artist whose work abounds with graphic humor. The atmosphere of the house is centered around the majestic multicolored mosaic created by the artist. The character of the property is an artistic collage of quirky furniture and designer pieces from the 1950s to today. A rebel alchemy where every details reveals the elegance and originality of the place.

Combining boldness and enthusiasm
Alice Monnier & Bernard Coloma decided in 2011 to hatched their dream of creating their own special place under the southern French sun.
Graduate from the Management Hospitality School in Lausanne, Alice worked in magical hotels around the world. From Dar Ahlam in Marocco, to Klosters at the Alpenroesli in Switzerland & the prestigious Domaine de Murtoli in Corsica, she developed a particular sense for customized service. Thanks to her parents, antique dealers specialized in the 30’s & 40’s, Alice spent much of her time in antique shops and on markets in view to decorate the Mas de l’Amarine with a collection of furniture & objects from the 50’s until now. Receive guests and share with them is an art in which Alice is particularly keen on.
Bernard took his first steps in the kitchen in Montpellier in his native region. He was always curious and adventurous for culinary experiences. He crossed the Atlantic to improve his skills and worked in the Eden Roc Hotel in St Barthélemy. He moved to Saint-Tropez at the Residence la Pinède, then in the Balearic Islands as a chef in Port Petit and again in Morocco for a luxury caterer. He then returned home on the side of his friend Anne Majourel star chef of Les Demeures du Ranquet. In 2005, coincidences in life have made him meet Alice while he was a private chef for Baron Bentinck Thyssen. The great escape led them together to manage Alpenroesli Klosters in Switzerland and the famous Domaine de Murtoli in Corsica. Inspired by his native Southern terroir, Bernard honors today the local products & prepares each dish as a story to share.
“We hope you will enjoy our house as much as we have taken pleasure in conceiving it for you. We have poured our heart and soul into making our house your home, the time for a dinner or a stay with us.” Alice & Bernard
