“The perfect place to relax”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

La Cascade has everyone you could possibly want for a relaxing break in some of the world's most beautiful countryside. It has a a wonderful view over the countryside to the South and on the edge of Aups, so very quiet (apart from the sound of the waterfall) but easy to walk into the village for our daily bread or dinner in one of the many local restaurants. I originally planned to drive to the Riviera for day trips, but the area around the mill is so gorgeous with many stunning villages, vineyards and the biggest canyon in Europe, that we felt no need to travel very far. Michael was the perfect host, stocking La Cascade with more provisions and kit than normal and falling over himself to try to make every aspect of our stay pleasant; we were lucky enough to have him staying next door for part of our stay, and listening to his stories while eating and drinking n the terrace were highlights of our trip. We'd love to return.

Thanks and it was a pleasure to overlap with you, even just briefly. The magnificent scenery of the Gorge de Verdon and the magical turquoise Lac Ste Croix certainly seem to have woven their spell with you and driving that Porsche round the gorge must have been a thrill!. As for a return trip here's hoping it's à bientôt.

Very helpful and informative owner. REALLY comfy beds and well stocked. Parking was a little tricky, but that was our only concern.

We were two couples and found La Cascade to be very comfortable. The 2nd bedroom was a little cramped but it was nice to hear the cascading water. The owner went out of his way to make us comfortable...with a stocked fridge and wine at our arrival. He even prepared a fabulous cook-out dinner for us one night and we enjoyed the view from the terrace. An easy walk into Aups with great restaurants and the necessities of life to be had. Near the Gorge and other lovely villages and markets. Oh and the olive farm store just down the hill.
