On a short break in mid September , we stayed in this lovely hotel, have to say great views, beautiful rooms, staff excellent, very good service. However I was disappointed with the food as we understood it was a Michelin star restaurant, we had lunch which was lovely and had pre booked dinner. We went out for a trip around and got lost ! arrived back at 9.15 pm to find the gates Locked, and we were late for dinner! it was like it was an effort for the staff to serve us as they seemed anxious to close and get out. Same staff as lunch time & was obvious that they expected everyone to finish dinner early! We were only in SOF for 2 days so each dinner was booked in a "special" place which this was not!
Hotel beautiful, pool area very nice but the spa is just basic, small so don't expect a full on spa experience. they did not inform us of the shuttle service to Saint Paul de Vence as we most certainly would have used it unless they gave us a bedtime of 8pm!!

Room Tip: our room was beautiful looked over the pool and countryside

My Mum and I were en route to Switzerland via Nice and stayed here for a week in early July. We first considered staying in St Paul de Vence itself but it ensued that staying at the wonderful Le Mas de Pierre was absolutely the right decision. There has been a hotel on this site for approx 200 years in the form of a bastide run by the Famille Pierre. There are family photographs in the hallways - one of the many original and unpretentious touches of this property.
Each of the bastides offers an outlook onto the surrounding hills to give sense of space. The pool area is lovely with an understated and respectful atmosphere from the collection of guests who were from all over Europe. The Table de Pierre - eating on the terrace overlooking the gardens is amazingly good and the icing on the cake is the garden setting and potagerie. It's all supported by attentive but not intrusive service. We found it to be excellent value on an internet prepaid rate. All the promises made by the Hotel were fulfilled by its multilingual staff.
It's easy to feel you are looking at a Cezanne painting as the sunsets on Les Mar hills. Small touches such as the citron water near reception, the on demand shuttle to take you to St Paul, Vence and Cagnes sur Mer together with the very well-serviced rooms make this a highly recommended destination.

Room Tip: Choose a room on an upper floor away from the pool if you seek tranquility.

This is a fantastic hotel with great views of the surrounding hills. The grounds are stunning and the pool area is incredibly relaxing with cabannas and a seperate hot tub. The rooms are traditional and exude quality. The interior decor is very impressive with some great pieces on the walls and in the hallways. Food is great and the service is second to none as well. Nice is well worth a visit.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We did not spend a considerable amount of time on property but the time we did spend was nice and relaxing.

PROPERTY OVERALL: The Mas de Pierre property is nicely set on a hilltop in the Saint Paul de Vence area overlooking the valley below. It is comprised of several stone buildings surrounding a garden and pool. The property is very well maintained and has a beautiful terrace where meals are served. Overall staff was excellent. A free shuttle service is offered to the nearby town of Saint Paul de Vence and, if given the choice, a ride in the open air 1950s fiat is a worthwhile experience. There is parking on site and given the narrow roads and relative lack of parking, it's not a bad idea to leave the car parked. While we didn't use the pool, it looked to be well maintained and had plenty of cabanas available for guests.

ROOM: Our room (room 100), while small, was tastefully decorated with antiques (or good replicas). The room had a private outdoor terrace and a very comfortable bed. The washroom while tight was more than adequate and was also adorned with lovely furnishings. Our package included a bottle of Champagne and a plate of pastries on arrival. Both were very nice.

RESTAURANT: we had breakfast daily and dinner one night at the hotel. Breakfast was a buffet and eggs and omelettes were available to order. The buffet was adequate with fresh breads, croissants, fruit, salmon and yogurt. The dining room setting was phenomenal. Truly relaxing. Service was very good.

Dinner was served on the same terrace and was also lovely (save the smoking that takes pace outside). Food was fresh and nicely presented. While not the best meal of the trip, it was nonetheless very good and of a standard that would be expected of a hotel of this caliber. Overall, we were very happy with the restaurant.

SPA AND GYM: My wife and I both had massages at the spa. The spa, while small, was relaxing and well maintained. The massages (which were included in our package) were excellent. The gym, however, was the one notable shortcoming of the property. It was small and not well maintained (paint chipping, very limited equipment). There was no water bottle in the gym itself and on one of two days, there were no towels. As well, on the second day of our trip, the air conditioning was not working which is very noticeable when its 34C outside.

Overall,our stay at this hotel was very nice. It is a hotel very well suited to its location. The surrounding environs are calming and serene. While we did see some children at the resort, it is much better united for couples and people trying to enjoy some relaxation and quiet. Perfect for a long weekend getaway.

After 6 busy days in Paris, Le Mas de Pierre was the perfect next stop. Perfectly manicured grounds featuring lush, sculpted gardens, freely-roaming white doves (wow!), pools and cabanas, rooms with loads of character and beautiful terraces, and to top it off, probably one of the most amazing restaurants we've ever eaten at. The service was flawless, they will even drive you to St-Paul-de-Vence in a vintage blue Fiat. A dream.. :)

I've been in total 5 times at Le Mas de Pierre. We started off with one night, then 2, ... this year spent a whole week. A testimony that the persistent delivery of excellent service pays off.

Service is one of the best one can find on the French Riviera:
- The staff calls you by your name (and it is not because I am a regular now: new visitors get the same treatment)
- The staff is diligent, responsive and efficient. I've never heard them saying No to any of our requests. THey always find a solution to any problem and if they cannot, which is rare, at least they tell you clearly why they cannot (instead of trying to convince you that you should not have such desire, which is what I often see at other places).

You really feel that the whole staff want you to feel well and mean it. Needless to say the "basics" of good hotels are all met: the rooms are comfortable, the cleaning is very good, the restaurant is good (without being top notch).

Hoping Le Mas de Pierre will keep up or even improve on these high standards.

Room Tip: If you travel in groups of 6 or more, you should check the availability of the Villa, which is in a...

We had a wonderful stay. The staff was outstanding and the property was beautiful. We chose to remain on property rather then explore the area so I can't comment on how it would be to drive up the hill late at night. The food was outstanding however it was a fairly limited menu. We were traveling with two small children so it was especially complicated. They did the best to accommodate them but the menu is designed for sophisticated 5 star meals. The village of St Paul de Vence is lovely but you really only need a few hours there. The hotel offered a shuttle service which was nice.
