  • The authentic family warmth
  • The otherworldly landscapes
  • The cowboys with French accents


The Bon family has lived and worked on this cattle farm in the South of France for generations. The late owner Jacques and his wife, architect Lucille, decided to turn the property into a guesthouse so they could share the Camarguaise lifestyle and landscape that they so love with others. The 1,300-acre estate includes a main house with a restaurant that serves some of the best food in the region, the farm buildings and the roaming herds of black bulls and white horses tended to by working cowboys. There are eight guestrooms and three suites, all of which have been tastefully decorated as a stylish hostess would have done for beloved friends and family. Antiques mix with family heirlooms and modern comforts.

The restaurant's tables are set up inside the massive country kitchen where the chef cooks and creates an instantly homey atmosphere. Among the rural distractions are a lovely pool, walks with wildlife experts and horseback or jeep rides into the surrounding bird sanctuary and marshland, where, if you're lucky, you will spot a flamingo. Adventurous types can learn how to lasso a bull with the cowboys while indulgent souls may opt for a massage.

Who Should Stay

Those looking to relax or be active off the beaten path and see another, little-known side of Provence with those who will welcome you like part of the family.
