We stayed at La Surprise in early September with our daughter and her fiancée. It's a delightful place with stunning views and a lovely swimming pool. Breakfasts were delicious. Steve and Claire were the perfect hosts and extremely helpful with recommendations and directions, and dropping us off in Grasse for dinner. Having a BBQ to use was a real plus.... More

Coming out of an Antipodean winter into this warm charming place, we thought La Surprise a slice of heaven. Wonderful views, setting with pool and cabana area was outstanding. First time arriving by car is a little challenging but Steve and Claire give you all the necessary tips to enable local routes to be negotiated. Particularly impressed by Steve and... More

This is the second time we have stayed at La Surprise. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we decided to return for our Babymoon, this time for a week. As usual, Steve and Claire were so welcoming and the perfect hosts. They truly have thought of everything, nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the fabulous fresh breakfasts... More

La Surprise is a beautiful BandB in Grasse in easy reach of the Cote DAzur. The house is stunning, the pool fabulous but the ‘can do’ attitutude of Steve and Claire makes this the perfect place to stay when visiting the South of France. From Steve's lifts to their own lonely planet - the owners had thought of everything to... More

This is an absolutely lovely place to stay. The rooms are simple but comfortable and very tastefully decorated, with good clean en suite bath / shower rooms. Each room opens up directly to the immaculate pool area where breakfast is served (a very nice continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, bread and pastries), and there is a good kitchen area...

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. It had 3 units - classified as a B & B. The location was very quiet with a beautiful view of the city of Grasse. It had an immaculate swimming pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas. There was a small cabana complete with refrigerator and grill. You could eat under cover or... More

A great welcome with a glass of rosé from Clare before we unpacked. The room was large with an extra dressing room and lots of finishing touches. Very comfortable bed, shower was a joy. Beautiful gardens and pool with stunning views. A well stocked garden room with dining table, fridge, barbeque and kitchen area, the only rule was that you... More

We stayed for 3 nights in June 2014 and found Steve and Clare to be wonderful hosts. Steve could not do enough for our party of 4 including driving us to and from another town for dinner, taking us into Grasse and joining us for great story telling.

We stayed at La Surprise for two days in the middle of June. Although we sent our request on very short notice (night before), Steve answered within several hours which was very helpful. We were prepared with a detailed description how to get to the place - a first impression of the extraordinary hospitality of Steve and Clare, the hosts.... More
