Le Mas du Roc
Ranked #1 of 39 Grasse B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2012

My wife and I stayed three comfortable nights at the Mas du Roc above Grasse in early April. It was early enough in the season such that we were the only guests at the time. Since the weather was unsettled, Gabriele suggest we opt for a bigger room versus the room with private terrace that we had reserved. It was a good suggestion as, in retrospect, we would not have used the terrace much due to the variable weather. The room was spacious and well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and very quiet.

The suggestion to have a car and GPS is almost mandatory. Even with the GPS, finding the inn in the daylight was somewhat of a challenge as some of the roads give a whole new meaning to the term "hard hairpin turn." Two of the turn would qualify as switchbacks so the smaller the car the better. Gabriele said we would adjust to these challenges and she was correct. Gabriele was also very helplful in planning itineraries and restaurants. All her suggestions were excellent.

We had two breakfasts in the enclosed common area and one out by the pool. All were excellent with copious amounts of fresh bread, cheese, ham, and preserves. We can't say enough about Gabriele's hospitality - including how to find a belt for my trousers which broke during our stay...The inn is also graced by Gabriele's three well trained dogs. We are more cat people than dog people, but Jacques, Emile, and Hank were very entertaining. The Mas du Roc was an excellent find.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a GPS. Ask Gabriele anything about travel or restaurants in the area.

My husband and I stayed at Mas du Roc, Grasse in early May, 2011. Gabriele met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome.
The accommodation is very comfortable and scrupulously clean, lovely room with en suite, beautiful linen! Breakfast of fresh fruit, cheese, yogurt, bread with home made preserves, was served beneath the umbrella beside the pool, lovely relaxing setting.
To find the B&B we strongly advise you have a car and use a GPS or at least view the property on Google Earth, as the roads in the region of Mas du Roc are very narrow, winding and it is very easy to become lost – especially at night!!
From Grasse we made a day trip to Cagnes sur Mere to visit Renoir’s house; 19 Chemin des Collettes, Cagnes sur Mere, a wonderful experience! On the same day we visited the Villa and Gardens Ephrussi de Rothschild, at St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, beautiful garden and villa, again, well worth a visit. We also recommend Parfumerie Fragonard museum and shop in Grasse!!
Gabriele is happy to recommend restaurants and areas in the Grasse region to visit; she also has a book available to guests of various scenic routes, (with, from our experience, rather optimistic travel times!)
Thank you Gabriele for your warm hospitality, due to unforeseen circumstances we are late in sending in our review.

Gabrielle not only loves life, she loves to host guests! Every day we spent there was with return guests from all over the world. Our biggest mistake was we didn't plan 'down' time to just HANG OUT THERE...despite the perfect weather and lure of the Mediterranean, one could just spend days on the property and nearby towns. We traveled by private car to Nice and Cannes with ease..her recommendations for meals were spot on, making our visit that more special. You will not be disappointed. She is gracious, cordial, interesting to spend time with without being intrusive.
We'll see you again and know to make our reservations in advance since you have such a loyal following~~ count us in!

PS. the pool area in pictures are EXACTLY the way we found it. I was very impressed!

This was our second visit to Gabriele, and it matched our first report we made to Trip adviser last year, It was like returning to a friend with a lovely home, the weather was perfect, so we were able to take advantage of the swimming pool this time,there was still the warm welcome, and many good conversations, with our host, with our every need met.
Long may this B & B continue.

Originally I was going to stay at Four Seasons in Provence but reviews on Trip Advisor convinced me to try Le Mas du Roc. Absolutely no regrets and my stay there contributed to my overall terrific holiday experience. The basics-cleanliness, location, quality of rooms, breakfast, etc-are high. The owners are gracious, fun, inclusive, interesting, knowledgeable & warm people that attract quality guests. My thanks to both Gabrielle and Olivier who went beyond the call of duty to make me feel welcome and comfortable. I also took 3 french lessons from Gabrielle, who is an excellent teacher. I stayed for one week and received gracious treatment ranging from hiking & directions to dinner/drinks.

I wish I could add something to the other fantastic reviews already posted. My wife and I stayed for two days and absolutely loved this place. The other reviews are absolutely true. Truly a wonderful experience. If there is a downside, it's the challenging roads you must drive to get to her place. Still, that is easily overcome by the wonderful experience.

We recently stayed at Le Mas du Roc for 2 nights and wish we had stayed longer. Gabrielle prepares the most beautiful and delicious breakfasts, with lots of fresh fruit, home made confitures, flaky croissants, fresh juices, etc. She has luxury bedding and toiletries in her rooms and the grounds are just gorgeous. Gabrielle makes nightly reservations for her guests to enjoy the best restaurants for dinner, too. Ideally located for exploring Grasse and the Cote d'Azur, we will certainly stay a week the next time we are in Provence.
