“Be a guest in this wonderful home!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

This is not a hotel in the normal sense, it is a fabulous home filled with interesting furniture, lovely artwork and heaps of hardback books including one written by the owner. It is a place where you are a house guest and you happen to pay when you leave. We had the choice of the rooms being the only guests that night so we chose the centre suite on the first floor. This included a huge bed in a huge bedroom, a large lounge area with easy chairs and a marble bathroom with tub and a separate shower between. Books and pictures were everywhere. Breakfast was taken outside in a beautiful covered area at a huge table, freshly squeezed juice, fresh fruit and fresh bread and croissants in wonderful surroundings. There was the offer of a swim in the pool before we left, a walk round the large gardens or just to dally a while. The visitors book is fascinating and goes back to the weekend parties in the early sixties. It is the most beautiful home and an unforgettable experience.

This villa is a gem - the owner Bill and his Bastide St. Mathieu made by far our best and happiest stay in Provence so far. It's a beautiful and luxury hideaway with a nicely selected and arranged interior. It has a personal and authentic yet sophisticated appeal. It feels like you are living remote in a stunning villa with a gorgeous and huge garden but actually you are in the heart of Grasse. You are close to everything you are looking for when heading to the Cote d’Azur. Don't expect minibars in the rooms instead you have a much better option: Bill serves you a glass of great vine whenever you feel like. We only spent one night at the Bastide St. Mathieu as it was fully booked for the weekend - and yes, we will be back. I can highly recommend this place. Bill, thank you!

My (now) wife and I hired the Bastide for the weekend of our wedding - we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The terrace was perfect for a sit-down dinner under the stars, the pool area was a great place for drinks before the meal (and a refreshing dip after brunch the next day). The house was big enough for us to put all our closest family members in beautiful suites. The owners, Bill and Soraya were wonderful - welcoming, helpful, discreet and always ready to help. Our guests were overwhelmed, as were we!

We found the bastide via Alistair Sawday and we were not dissappointed during our 5 night stay in August. The bastide is simply wonderful and is like a home from home with the owners treating you as one of the family.
Our 4 year old daughter was entranced and soon treated the pool (which is fabulous) as her own as well as the friendly resident dog peanut!
The rooms are luxuriously furnished and we had one of the most restful holidays to date and were really sad to leave.
The owners are delightful and could not be more accomodating, we will definetly be returning.

We went here for a wedding, it was spread over two days. What an amazing venue - so magical. The whole place is just great and the house is amazing. I would love to stay here, I don't think there is anything that could be improved. Very romantic. The pool area is great, just so idyllic. The courtyard looked so pretty, just ideal.

Room Tip: All the rooms here are amazing

Bastide St Mathieu is an absolutely gorgeous B&B hotel set in the most stunning countryside and I cannot recommend it enough. It is an ideal place to have a wedding without a doubt - we had our dream day there and our friends and family fell in love with it just as we did, and have not stopped talking about what a wonderful place it is. Everyone wanted to move there! The owners are so lovely and cannot help enough with tips and advice on decent local places to eat and things to do and the venue itself is beautifully decorated with exquisite taste throughout. Our time spent there was simply not long enough and we cannot wait to go back to visit this little piece of paradise soon.
