My husband and I spent 3 nights in the charming Bastide in July 2014
Our room was large ,comfortable and extremely clean, well decorated and reflecting the love of India by the hosts Claudia and Philippe.
The breakfast was excellent either served inside or outside on the terrace.
Best location to visit the numerous village around , Philippe is always ready to advice you where to go , what to do and where to eat .
No better place to stay in Biot.

We did a combination of a week in Cannes (App. from Philipe en Claudia) and a week the B&B.
It was a perfect stay. The appartment is near the La Croisette in Cannes so in the middle of all the shops, restaurants en right on the beach. Great!
The stay in the B&B Studio Agonda was also verry good. It was clean, the king size bed and 2 extra beds were verry good en a great shower! Every morning they gave us fresh bread!
Location is perfect for visiting Nice, Monaco etc.
It was a perfect stay for all 4 of us!
Stayed here in July 2014 and had an excellent time. Room excellent and spacious - same for the bathroom. Breakfasts taken outside on either terrace was a great start to the day - fresh orange juice, coffee, teas pastries, jams, bread, yoghurts and fruit! Nothing was too much trouble for Philippe, Claudia or Anna. Philippe was an excellent and attentive host - always having time to stop and have a chat with us and also prepared a couple of 'car tours' of surrounding villages and a list of restaurants in nearby Biot to 'sample'. We will be back!
My partner and I had the pleasure to stay at the Bastide Valmasque in June of this year just for a couple of nights. We booked the B&B for convenience as we were flying in for a surprise birthday visit to my father in law - but what an unexpected treat it was!! On arrival Claudia greeted us and was so helpful with ideas for restaurants and places to visit during our stay (such a shame we didn't have time to take her up on most of her ideas). Nothing was too much trouble for Claudia or Phillipe during our stay with them and they even set up a breakfast for us when we needed to leave at a very early 5am start!!
The room was airy, spacious, clean and had a fabulous shower - I am a very frequent traveller as a result of my job, and there are a great number of so called "quality hotels" that could learn a thing or two about hospitality from the Bastide Valmasque!
Great value for money and we shall be returning - this time, just for a great vacation and taking Claudia up on her "things to do" list! A huge recommend to anyone!! :-)
Warm welcome very friendly staff and owners. Good run through the security and ins and outs. Clean rooms and overall. Good room.good shower and bathroom. Great coffee. Location easy to find and close to the town. Good parking.
With four friends i did a cooking class at the Bastide (advertised on their website) while we were staying up the road in lovely Biot.
Claire and Felipe were very accommodating given we booked at the last minute, and the day was a hoot. We laughed, we learned, we cooked and we thoroughly enjoyed the very lovely resulting lunch over some wine and stories of old times in Paris. Claire was a very fun teacher, Christine and Anna incredibly helpful and fun to be with and Felipe finished off by giving us a whole touring program for the villages around the area as well as restaurants to visit in Lyon and Paris. The day was a highlight of my month in France.
The recipes will be staying with me for good too - I've been back less than three weeks and already i've cooked the entire menu once and the soup a l'oignon three times.
Merci boucoup to Claire, Christine, Anna and Felipe - and the soup bowls you gave us at the end of the day have been well used already.
What a treat! We had the pleasure of staying here 2 weeks ago whilst on a one week holiday. Philippe & Claudia were wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much effort. The main house is beautifully decorated with lovely touches from India. There were 6 of us occupying 3 rooms, all of which impressed. Highlight was our final night when Philippe hosted our game of boules (pétanque) in their garden, and Claudia prepared delicious canapés and wines. Thank you for a great week!
