Reviewed 18 August 2014

We spent a few nights in July at this wonderful countryhouse in the heart of the Cannes-Juan Les Pins - Antibes area. The house is on top of the hills just behind Golf Juan (15 mins from Cannes, 10 mins from Juan Les Pins, 35 mins from Nice airport) enjoying a wonderful view over Vallauris and partially to the sea. Look for the location in advance and plan your trip, it will be easy to find .

The breakfast is beautifully served in a big terrace with good pastries, ham and cakes by the owners. The rooms are really cozy and typically southern-french/romantic, big and offering a lot of privacy.

Owners are kind and helpful. They have been able to book for us a place in a local popular beach on a busy sunday, and the experience has been great. Recommended!

If you are driving in the region, Mas Samarcande is an excellent choice for accommodation. Vallauris is close to the popular Antibes, Cannes and Nice, yet provides a quite atmosphere for those who fancy a getaway. Mireille and Pierre's hospitality is unparalleled - as mentioned in all previous reviews. We had great recommendations of restaurants at Cap d'Antibes, Biot and Vallauris itself, all of which superb with great value for money. We left some clothes in the room and Mireille also kindly and swiftly offered to send them back to Asia to us. Great sea view from the terrace where we had breakfast, and Pierre took great photos for us. Highly recommend this B&B for an unforgettable experience!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, we especially like the corner room we had

Highly recommend staying here if you're visiting the region. Mireille was an incredible host that provided 2 spacious and clean suites with excellent amenities. She was very accommodating on arrival times which was very helpful. The breakfast on the terrace was one of the best we've had. Overall excellent and would go back again in a second!

We traveled to this area of France with another couple recently and stayed with Pierre and Mireille for nearly a week. The four of us are in total agreement and can recommend this without hesitation. When one combines a great couple that were our hosts along with a great location and a really fair price we would go back to Le Mas Samarcande without question....and we will!

Le Mas Samarcande was one of the highlights of our trip to France. The B&B is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The location, high above the town, is spectacular. There are amazing views both towards the mountains as well as over the sea. A real treat to eat breakfast on the porch with these wonderful views. The owners, Mireille and Pierre, were extremely friendly and very helpful. Not only did they answer all of our question, but Pierre prepared a daily "program" of what to do and see in the vicinity. It was most helpful as our French is very limited. Overall, we would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Riviera, and we hope to return some day as well.

Our 10 day stay at Le Mas Samarcande exceeded our high expectations. We read all the reviews of this B and B as well as others in the area, and picked this one for its excellent central location to all the hilltop towns and beaches we wanted to see. The Diot's are the most hospitable and charming couple, who helped us each day plan an itinarary that made sense in terms of avoiding crowds, and suggesting good routes. Each day we started with a delicious home-made breakfast and each evening we sat on our patio, drinking wine and enjoying the beautiful scenery, which included the Alps and beautiful surrounding hills and valleys.
