I made a last minute reservation in this restaurant for lunch. I was enticed by the pictures that led me to believe the setting would be enjoyable. It turned out to be the case. But not only that, the food was delicious, based on great product quality and classical prepartions. Given the reasanable price, this turned out to be one of the best experiences I have had in a long time in the south of France. I ordered the vegetarian salad, the sea bass with ratatouille and the Infusion of red berries and fruit. For me it was a great experience. I would return without a hesitation.
Second stay at the Cantemerle. Just a lovely hotel, such friendly staff. Great facilities and location. Accepted our dogs, which will sadly be the last time they will be accepted. Thank you for a lovely stay.
The staff fulfilled every request with kindness and a smile. They were very helpful and informative. The room was beautiful. The restaurant was 5 ***** ! Could not ask for a better stay. Wish was still there! Will definitely go back
I visited the south of France for a family wedding. The hotel staff were incredibly warm, welcoming, helpful and kind. The grounds are overflowing with gorgeous flowers and wildlife. My room was spacious, tastefully appointed and comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to everyone and anyone who is visiting this amazing part of the world, it is like a home away from home!
This a charming property, perfect for unwinding and enjoying lots of peaceful R&R. Our room was very comfortable and had all the necessary amenities including a private terrace. An added bonus is the restaurant, which was extremely good. Seating adjoins the pool and makes the experience all the better. Their Friday night barbecue should not be missed if you are there. It’s restaurant and hotel staff were excellent as well. An added bonus is that it is just a 15 minute all to the pretty town of Vence, as well as a reasonable drive to key points in the French Riviera.
Perfection is not a term that I would attribute lightly, however, this hotel has attained the level and quality of 5 stars. For location, it is within an easy and pleasant walk to Vence with it’s gorgeous “historique” quarter and authentically charming village. The attention to detail in our room included a plug socket right next to the mirror to facilitate hair-straightening which is something not to be underestimated as well as BBC1 TV channels and English breakfast tea as well. Outside there were always plenty of sun-loungers available to relax on around the various tiers of garden areas to add to the privacy within the beautifully landscaped gardens. The indoor pool and spa was also amazing. On-site there was also a fitness suite with “top of the range” equipment including a Technogym internet linked treadmill, cross-trainer and bike. The entire hotel exuded quiet monastic serenity set on a hillside overlooking the forest but with meticulous attention to detail for your comfort and relaxation. The staff were attentive and friendly and the cocktails in the late afternoon – delicious as was the breakfast in the morning. As stated before, I don’t think ‘perfection’ is a word I have ever used before in a review, but this hotel was, for us, simply flawless – it had everything we would want and we will definitely be returning. …
An hidden jewel A fantastic place to relax and enjoy peace and excellent food The hotel is cozy, with many nice facilities The restaurant is gourmet A perfect place to spend relaxing time, good for families but mostly for couples
We have visited Cantemerle yearly since 2012 except for 2020 - 21 and enjoy to stay at the hotel. We appreciate the efforts spent to improve the facilities and especially the garden. We can give Cantemerle and its staff our best recommendation.
We stayed there for about 8 days in May and had a pretty good time. The Room was quiet, spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. Service was excellent, Breakfast in a consistent quality. We particularly liked the outdoor layout of the place with various possibilities to relax, and of course that very nice whirlpool with a fantastic view. Thanks to all staff, much appreciated.
2nd stay here - lovely hotel in a great position. Unfortunately restaurant was not open on the Monday I was there but they did inform me in advance. Appreciated the bike shed and some great cycling from right outside the hotel
