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.
