Notre Gite: Le Mas des Garennes

Today I would like to tell you about the lovely gîte touristique located right here in Saint Roman de Malegarde. It is know as Le Mas des Garennes (provencial farmhouse of cottontail rabbits) and is open year-round. Jacques and Stéphanie Kaneko are the onsite owners and operators. Their eldest daughter, Iris goes to school with Emily. Inès, their younger daughter, will begin CP at our village school in the fall. All three girls are frequently found playing on the swing set in the Kaneko's enormous yard.

A while back, Stéphanie and Jacques gave me a private tour of the lovely facilities; they keep the gîte in immaculate condition and each apartment has been tastefully furnished. The house belonged to the Kaneko family and Jacques decided to completely remodel the building and convert it to a gîte following the death of his mother several years ago.

There are two, two bedroom apartments, Gîte Genêt and Gîte Lavande, which are available for full-week or weekend rental. Each is top-notch, with cable television, modern kitchens including dishwashers, washing machines for your laundry and beautiful bathrooms. There is a boulodrome, a very nice barbeque area and a piscine for guests. The facility is registered with Gîtes de France. Pets are accepted.

If you are planning a trip to Provence, I would encourage you to consider staying here in St Roman at this lovely country gîte. Be sure to let me know when you are coming; I'd love to give you a tour of our village! For pricing and availability, visit their website: Le Mas des Garennes
