We have stayed 1 night in June 2015 in La Surprise and loved every second spent in this B&B. The house is a haven of peace. Steve and Clare are charming hosts, who made us feel at home immediately. The room we were offered was perfect: lovely decoration, comfortable bed, immaculate clean, huge bathroom and an amazing view onto the... More

We stayed at La Surprise in late May for two nights and had a great time! Clare and Steve were very friendly, attentive and hospitable hosts who gave us lots of tips on what to do in the area. We really enjoyed talking to them and learning about Provence from their long experience. They prepared a delicious breakfast every morning... More

For five years, since our friends moved out to Grasse, my wife and I have been promising ourselves a trip to visit them. We finally made it in May 2015 and stayed for five nights, sans enfants, with Steven and Clare at La Surprise. And what a surprise! An oasis of calm in an otherwise lively corner of France. Tucked...

What a wonderful place. Enjoy your coffee and croissants, or glass of local wine, in the delightful gardens up in the hills with views across to the Med. Clare and Steve are the most welcoming of hosts, ensuring that you are able to make the most of your say in this extraordinary area. We highly recommend a visit. You will... More

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
