Holiday for 5 families
Booking and payment was easy,
As the date approached Claudie and Jean-Noel communicated on Wattsapp which worked for me,
It was my Wifes birthday on our first evening and they kindly recommended a restaurant and booked it for 18 of us (they even managed to get a Gluten free cake on request which was the best cake I have ever tasted)
The booking in was simple but with bored children who had been travelling a long time in tow was a bit frustrating for them as they just wanted to sort their rooms out and get in the pool.
I had already messaged before arriving
about the deposit as it was impractical for me to get €1500 back at the end of the holiday, they agreed that I could pay this in the equivalent of my local currency (GBP)
Claudie showed us the house and all the bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens explaining the house and pool/hot tub rules.
There is a cat Bagheera that lives in the house which wasnt an issue for us but maybe if you have allergies. There is a bowl that just needs food putting in( I dont recall reading about a cat before booking)
Whilst This was happening Jean-Noel offered samples of his fresh apricot juice and showed the other guests different activities near by.
During the stay we did have a couple of issues,
The 1st was the Hot water stopped working, a quick message to Claudie and Jean-noel came out straight away an emergency switch had tripped,
The owners sent several activities through one of which was kayaking which we decided to do on the spur of the moment Claudie accommodated this and we got extra discount on top of the group discount. From text to being in the Kyak in 3 hrs 🤣�
Upon returning from Kayaking during the evening there was a powercut,
We checked the trip switches but could not see anything tripped another message was sent, this was around 2150.
The power was restored in the early hours when jean -Noel went to work,
We then found out that the pool pump had been removed and was being repaired (not sure if this was anything to do with the power outage)
This meant we were without the pool for almost 2 days which again was frustrating.
Having said that when we had issues or requests Claudie and Jean -Noel were happy to sort .
You will need a car (we had 2 x 9 seaters and a smaller car) as there is no local taxi service.
The house itself is beautiful and ideal for larger families or groups.
Thank you Claudie and Jean-Noel we did enjoy our stay and your hospitality.
Fabulous villa and great location
Spent 1 week with large family group of 14 adults and 12 children. The property is very well equipped and has great facilities. A good location with a really pleasant and inviting village. Claudie and Jean-Noel were excellent hosts and would thoroughly recommend the villa to others. Thanks again!
We had a family reunion for 11 people at the property. It was lovely. It was during the heat wave and all the rooms were very comfortable and cool. We especially enjoyed the pool.
Two dinners were catered by the owners and they were delicious. We enjoyed our stay at Mas de l'llon
Henri we were delighted to receive you and your family at Mas de l'Ilon on Vallabregues. It was a real pleasure to meet you and we thank you for your kindness. It's a pleasure to see you again…
The Mas I’Ilon far exceeded our expectations, it was beautiful and so relaxing.
Claudie and Jean-Noel were the perfect hosts. When we arrived, they served the most amazing apricot drink and shared the history of the home. The home perfectly met all of our needs to accommodate four families with a total of fifteen people. It was the most relaxing vacation, and the location was perfect. It is centrally located and you can easily travel throughout Provence to see all of the amazing sights. The home is convenient to walk to buy fresh bread each morning, and a local bar that showed the final game for the World Cup when France won. We all enjoyed sharing that moment with the citizens of Vallabrègues. If you are traveling to Provence, you should stay in this home.
Enjoyed our stay at Mas de l'Ilon in Vallabregues
Our group of 14 adult friends and family stayed four nights at Mas de l'Ilon in Vallabregues after our intended property's cancellation forced us to look for another property within 48 hours of our arrival in Provence. Claudie and her husband were so generous and supportive of us and their house is the perfect place for groups: Large bedrooms with ensuite baths, inviting and beautiful public spaces including a generously sized pool and jacuzzi, and a Yamaha digital piano for our nightly singalongs. The kitchen/dining area worked perfectly for our group dinners with two different local chefs and Claudie invited us to a musical dinner event in the town square which we thoroughly enjoyed. We could not be happier with our stay in at Mas de l'Ilon! Thanks, Claudie!
Fabulous house with very friendly owners.
House is absolutely stunning. Very impressive interior design. We were group of 18 people. Five pairs plus kids (8-17 y.o.). We stayed in the main part of house and in two extra bedrooms/houses outside the house for one week. Kitchen was very well equipped and there was a large dining area. Every bedroom was designed in it's own style, and had separate bathroom. Backyard with large and clean pool and a big jacuzzi as well as outside bar. Owners were visiting us everyday to clean a pool and make sure that everything was fine. Town is small and peaceful. We visited many cities in the neighborhood: Avignion, Arles, NImes, Uzes and moore. Provence is charming and beautiful. We will definitely come back.
Le Mas de l'Ilon is located in Vallabrègues, a village of basketry and Provencal chairs, in a tourist triangle near Avignon (21km), Arles (25 km), St Rémy-de-Provence / Les Baux de Provence (22 km), Nîmes (31 km), Uzès and the Pont du Gard (21km), Les Saintes Marie de La Mer / la Camargue (54km).
Vallabrègues is today the only small village in the Gard region of Provence. The village was chosen by Frédéric Mistral as a haven for Vincent, the basket maker, in love with "Mireille". It brought together 450 basket makers out of 1818 inhabitants! Today, every 2nd week in August, it is the basketry festival.
IN THE WEST, passing by Villeneuve lez-Avignon, just on the other side of the Rhône, discover Nîmes (30mn) and its Roman arenas, Anduze, Rémoulins and the Pont du Gard (20mn), Aigues -Deaths, the Saintes-Marie de la mer (40 mins) and the Camargue.
TO THE EAST, authentic Provence with the Luberon, its hilltop villages and unique natural sites, as well as the Pays de Sorgue.
IN THE SOUTH, it is the territory of the Alpilles, with Saint Rémy de Provence and the Roman archaeological site Glanum (20 mins), Arles (15 mins), Beaucaire and Tarascon (5 mins).

FINALLY, Avignon (15mn) has kept from its history an exceptional heritage, a large part of which is listed as World Heritage by Unesco: the Palais des Papes and the Pont d'Avignon but also the Place du Palais with the Baroque facade from the mint, the Petit Palais museum and the Doms cathedral, as well as the ramparts from the Doms garden to the Bridge. European city of culture in 2000, Avignon vibrates to the rhythm of its activities cultural: opera, permanent theaters, associations, clubs offer music, theater or dance performances all year round.
Major events: Cheval Passion in January, the Hivernales de la danse in February, Alterarosa at the Palais des Papes in May… and of course, the Avignon Festival!
