Mas Du Verdon
Ranked #5 of 10 Castellane B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Beautiful place; breakfast was great. Ed was very helpful with advice about hiking trails. We had two issues that could have been avoided with better communication in the reservation confirmation emails: 1. no soap of any kind in the room ... I can deal with no shampoo because I usually carry some; I have never seen a B&B or hotel that does not provide hand/bath soap. If that is the case, the guest should be told about it ahead of time so they can bring their own. We were told that we could go to the Casino (supermarket) in town and buy some. 2. dinners: understand that we did not arrange in sufficient time to have dinner the day we arrived (Saturday); however, we were then told they only cook every other day. So, we said we would like to eat there on Monday, but were told they don't cook on Monday. So, I guess they really only cook Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Would help if that were explicitly communicated as well.

this is a b&b that's worth while, we had a wonderfull week and we'll be back.
That's for sure.
Ed gives super advises and has a lot of trips prepared for everybody, her has more than 45 trips.
Mel is a cook that should be discovered, she earns easily a Michelinstar.

Room Tip: There are 3 appartments, ask for them

We booked "Mas" purely on Tripadvisor feedback and it exceeded all the incredible reports it already had.
Your hosts, Ed and Mel are the most welcoming, friendly people anyone could expect to meet.When staying here, you are welcomed as if one of the family. Ed's humour, knowledge of the area,Mel's cooking, it's difficult to know where to begin.
They seamlessly brought four nationalities together at an evening meal ( sorry, dinner party) and within minutes had broken down language barriers and ended with everyone dancing around the terrace as if a New Years party.
Mel's cooking is fabulous and i doubt if any of the restaurants in the area can beat it which is an incredible thing as there are some fantastic eateries.
The views are to die for, rooms gorgeous.
If you are in the Castellane area, Mas du Verdon is a must stay!

This was our second stay at Mas du Verdon. Once again we had a wonderful time. It's a shame the rating is limited to 5, this place deserves more!

Ed and Mel are so welcoming and helpful. On both of our visits the rooms have been lovely. Mel's cooking was just as good as we remembered, as was Ed's sense of humour and taste in music. As for the hats - what more can I say!!!

Mas du Verdon is a very special place - we will definitely be back.

We spent a holliday in the Mas in may and we were sad to keave after a week.
This chambre d'hotes is superb, the rooms are very good and clean, the owners (Ed and Mel) are the best hosts I ever met and the diners are incredible.
Don't hesitate, this you should experience.

Room Tip: choose one of the appartments Les Roses, le Tilleul or Lavende

We spent a lovely few days here last month and wish we could have stayed for longer. Mel's cooking is sublime and both she and Ed are extremely warm and welcoming without being intrusive and can offer a variety of excursions and sound advice. There is a wide choice of activities companies and we were very pleased with Ed's advice to use Aqua Viva Est.

The setting is idyllic, only about a 10-minute stroll from the centre of town, yet you feel surrounded by nature. We went to the Gorge primarily to do white water activities, yet could easily have spent longer there going hiking and exploring the area more fully. We certainly hope to go back soon.
