“A piece of french heaven”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The attention to detail at Le Mas Samarcande is evident in the smallest detail seen in Pierre's breakfast yoghurt pots.

Our charming host Pierre makes this yogurt himself and puts it in the cutest pots and I can't get enough of it. it is served with all kinds of other delights for breakfast. My personal favorites are the plump juicy fruits and rice pudding as well as the fabulous croissants and fresh coffee.

So that is how you start your day at Le Mas Samarcande. And you finish it in almost the same style by munching through the macarons left on the side table in your room.

The rooms are spacious, and gorgeously decorated with good sized bathrooms and top quality sheets and towels. Come prepared for a great night's sleep!

We will have returned three times over the past few years. It's relaxing, the sandy beaches of Nou Nou and Garoupe are close by, and dinner and a wander around Vallauris is a must.

In search of a different place near Cannes and the crowded Croisette, we found this little piece of Provence super-cannes, far from the madding crowd but still close to the places we love.
The owners are exquisitely kind, the rooms are large and cleaned, the breakfast on the terrace on the Cannes bay are above average.
Advisable indeed.

We spent a short night here but loved this place already: spacious and clean room with comfortable settings and nice view. Hosts are very helpful and breakfast was excellent. Would love to spend some more time for next visit in Southern France.

This was our second visit to Les Mas Samarcande and, once again, Mireille and Pierre looked after us wonderfully. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel welcome from the first moment we arrived. Both Mireille and Pierre came up with interesting suggestions every day for places we could visit or restaurants to try and were happy to book for us. We could not have asked for more and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What makes Le Mas Samarcande special is not just its fantastic location but chiefly it is Mireille and Pierre who both work extremely hard but, as with all excellent establishments, make it look effortless. Highly recommended!

Big rooms with big bathrooms, outstanding breakfast on the terrace overlooking the surroundings, helpful hosts. A bit hard to find, look for the two palms next door, it is almost at the end of the road.

If you are going to visit the South of France this residence is worth spending a few nights in. The standards are extremely high and the welcome so warm. So forget about those expensive hotels, give this house a chance....you wont be disappointed!

Room Tip: They are ALL good rooms!

Why would anyone want a cookie-cutter hotel room when one could stay in a beautiful place like this? The Cote d'Azur is one of the spectacular spots on earth, and le Mas Samarcande is a perfect location to enjoy it. It is totally private, quiet, away from the hustle-bustle, but only a few minutes' drive to the sea and neighboring towns.

First of all, our room was enormous, with lovely Provencal furnishings, a desk, a dresser, plenty of closet space. And secondly, our bathroom was also enormous! Everything was spotless, and the thick towels were a lovely treat. We had a garden room, and right outside our door we could enjoy a small patio with lots of flowers.

Others have described the large breakfasts with fresh-baked treats. Everything was delicious, and the pot of fresh coffee was a special treat. Each morning, we were served on a patio that overlooks the hills of Cannes and a bit of the Mediterranean. And Mireille and Pierre were always helpful, taking time to help us plan our day.

When we were leaving, Mireille told us that she was afraid that the chambermaid might have broken our little travel alarm clock--and she offered to replace it for us. It's an old clock, and we refused her offer, but that is a good indication of her concern for her guests.
