|Mas de Cornud, home of David and Nito Carpita, nestled in the lavendar- scented countryside of Provence welcomes you and invites you to enjoy the many pleasurable experiences of St. Remy and surrounds. The market at St. Remy is the most fascinating market I have ever visited. Nito and David celebrate the food, wine, people, culture and history of their area which is nutured by the summer sun . The visit to the Hospice where Van Gough painted in vibrant yellows and vivid blues was a highlight to me as I studied art.
|We can't thank you enough for making our trip to Saint-Remy such a wonderful one. Our evening at MDC was so much fun, the people were so interesting and the food was fabulous.
Being able to connect with "locals" makes all the difference in the world when it comes to learning about, and experiencing a new area. You are both so welcoming and friendly, we feel as if we have known you for years -- you have the perfect personalities for the business you are in because the interest you take in each person you meet is entirely genuine.

|I believe you should consider staying at a really terrific place, Mas de Cornud, in St. Remy, a few miles out of les Baux. I highly recommend it. It is a beautiful, refurbished 200 year old country inn, and the hosts are wonderful and very knowledgeable and helpful. It also is a cooking school which is a major plus; even if you are uninterested in learning, it has an amazing kitchen and Nito is a fabulous and ethusiastic chef. She and her husband, David, are very knowledgeable about places to eat, markets, and things to do.
|Just a quick note to tell you again how much we enjoyed our stay with you. I found a site that covers "Social Petanque on a Bounded Court." The author maintains that this form of Petanque is becoming very popular in the U.S. but says "My only knowledge of locations to play Petanque on bounded courts is at family oriented, clothing optional resorts and campgrounds." Fortunately you don't have "clothing optional" rules even though you have a bounded court.

|Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful experience during our stay in Provence. It was a real highlight of the trip! Nito's cooking class was A Number One and the dinners out on the patio were memorable (the Aussies made us do it). We've already cooked a meal from Pedaling Through Provence. It was superb! Next year I'm expanding our already diverse herb garden.
Again, kudos to Nito and yourself!

|Thanks so much for your warm hospitality. We truly saved the best for last during our whirlwind tour of France. You are exceptional hosts and we couldn't have felt more comfortable. I must say that the night before our arrival in St Remy, we stayed at le Pignons (sp) in Aix. Clearly the treatment we received at your home far exceeded that of a renowned 4 star hotel!!! Thanks so much.
