bed and breakfast mas à l'improviste, MaillaneMAILLANE, THE VILLAGE

Maillane, where B&B Mas à l'improviste is located, is a splendid little village just 7 km from sophisticated Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The peaceful village (some 2,000 inhabitants) has preserved its authenticity through the centuries. Maillane is renowned as the native village of the Provençal author, Fréderic Mistral (1830-1914), who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1904.


In his works, Mistral often describes the beauty of the Provençal villages and the charm of Maillane itself. Fortunately, the surrounding villages have also been preserved for the current generations of residents and visitors...

Charming Camargue is a marshland in southern France’s Rhône delta near the Mediterranean Sea. The area is known particularly for the white horses and bulls living in the wild and the large flocks of pink flamingos. The Camargue is full of lakes and lagoons, grasslands, dunes and wooded areas, and is also used for the production of salt, the cultivation of rice, and viniculture.


Driving down easily from Maillane, every visitor will be impressed by the Camargue’s panoramic landscapes, the peace and quiet, and the footpaths and recreation possibilities, including horseback riding.

Many visitors to the Camargue are also irresistibly attracted to the famous fishing village Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.

Also known as a place of pilgrimage for gypsies, the village attracts crowds of tourists for its lovely unspoilt shoreline and delightful climate.
