My boyfriend and I stayed at La Surprise for 5 nights at the beginning of July after finding it on tripadvisor. We expected it to be good but it by far exceeded all expectations. Steve & Clare are lovely and could not be more helpful - advice on where to go, providing all different kinds of towels and beach equipment... More

We had a wonderful 5-night stay at La Surprise in June. Although we chose to stay here based on a fantastic recommendation, the house, the surroundings and Steve and Clares' hospitality all exceeded our expectations. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated, with separate entrances from the communal pool and gardens. With a car, La Surprise is perfectly located to... More

Enjoyed a most wonderful time at La Surpise, Steve & Clare were the most perfect hosts. The accomodation and pool area is excellent and we were made to feel really special as nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for a brilliant time.!

Our second visit to La Surprise and wouldn't hesitate to go again! Beautiful setting, lovely clean and very comfortable rooms. You can chill by the pool all day and enjoy a BBQ or take advantage of Steve and Clare's excellent local knowledge and explore the area. Brilliant hosts, really make you feel at home, only wish we could have stayed... More

If your looking for a relaxing B & B then this one hits the spot. The hosts are very friendly with excellent local knowledge and give realistic advice. Nothing was to much to make our visit relaxing. The rooms we rented were fresh and had a nice outlook over the pool and vista. Pick up from the airport is available... More

I fell in love with La Surprise before we even arrived, enamored with the idea of staying in a house 'all covered in vines'. Although I joked beforehand I was worried about exactly what 'la surprise' would be.. (would we arrive to find there is no hotel at all?!) we were pleased to find everything was exactly as we hoped... More

My fiancée found this place for our honeymoon and apart from a few photos I didn't know anything about it. We chose not to hire a car and being adventurous Londoners got the bus from Nice airport. This dropped us off at the end of a long and rather bumpy lane, leading down and past hillside villas of all sizes,... More
