I can't say enough about this place. It's located off of a winding road in the beautiful gorges and mountains of the area outside a cute little hill town which has a Wednesday market, and is about a 10 minute drive the other way from a candy and crystallized flower maker which gives a great tour (you can ask for English tours). The rooms are so pretty and comfortable and there is a little table and chairs just outside each door. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was wonderful with the typical yogurts, cereals and cheeses, but also meats, and eggs made to order - just ask! It was served inside one cool day, but then outside the other days overlooking the pool, flowers and view down to the Mediterranean. Beautiful! We also had fun using the bocce ball court. The best part though was how Veronique and Stefaan made us feel right at home the minute we arrived and how they were always available in case we needed anything (which we didn't!) Nothing would have been too much for them. For example, I said I had never tasted a specific French item, and 10 minutes later, there was Stefaan surprising me with it, presented on a tray! (Merci Stefaan!) One of the best experiences of our 3 days there was the Table d'hotes where anyone who is staying there can have dinner with the hosts. They cooked an amazing dinner and ate with the other 6 of us who had signed up. It was wonderful getting to know them and having an authentic home-style French meal. It was really hard to leave this little paradise! Tip - when you arrive, there is a button to push on the left of the entrance to let them know you are waiting by the gate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our Provencal mas with 5 rooms is located in an old olive grove with a garden full of lavender and Rosemary. South-facing "Le Mas des Cigales" bathes the whole day in the sun and from the terrace around the pool you enjoy a wonderful view over the Mediterranean Sea. Le Mas des Cigales is located just outside the authentic village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup. Each room is equipped with safe, flat screen TV, air conditioning and bed linen with light quilts. The pool is South/South-west-oriented and is therefore the whole day in the Sun. It is accessible to everyone because it has a border around on 1.3 M deep, also in the deeper part of it. Our tennis court helps you to maintain your condition (rackets and balls are kindly offered), or if you are looking for an earlier quiet activity, you can enjoy a game "jeu de boules". And above all, let us not forget our sauna and jacuzzi in which you can fully relax. For internet users, we offer free WIFI. There is a parking on the closed area. Breakfast is served from the first warm days in the outdoor kitchen or in the patio at the colder temperatures. One or two times per week we will spoil you with a delicious table d ' hotes (without obligation). ... more less
