Reviewed 10 October 2013

This B & B is immaculate and beautiful. It was much nicer than we had expected or even hoped for. Mireille and Pierre amazed us by being so welcoming and so caring. We instantly felt comfortable, the way you do with family who make the effort to make sure you are happy and comfortable. The breakfast was incredible, and if we wanted, we could chat with other guests on the veranda that overlooked the beautiful view. I could have spent weeks at this place. On top of all that, the price was very reasonable. I was SO glad we didn't stay in Cannes, that we had been forced to find a place just outside of the city.

The only negative (far outweighed by the positives), is that the room didn't have a closet.

We felt very nurtured by the kindness of Mireille and Pierre and their wonderful breakfasts.

My girlfriend and I arrived here from Eze and had two lovely nights in a huge room with an amazing bathroom. The breakfast on the balcony in the sun was exquisite and Pierre and Mireille couldn't do enough for you when it comes to booking a restaurant or a place on the beach. Their advice was always spot on, and their house really is a pleasure to stay in.

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.
