La Rivolte
Ranked #20 of 39 Grasse B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 June 2012

We stayed for 4 nights over a long weekend at La Rivolte as a last minute booking. Within hours of making the booking Suzie had called to ask which room we would prefer and this fantastic service continued from a friendly welcome when we arrived, to lovely breakfasts (freshly baked croissants with the smell wafting up the stairs to greet us!), and useful advice about things to see and do.
The property and bedrooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. The pool is a perfect temperature and a good size/depth for swimming or just cooling off. There is Sky TV in a communal room along with books, DVDs and maps/guides galore.
We had a fabulous time at La Rivolte and will definitely be returning as soon as we possibly can as it's a perfect base for exploring the whole of the Cote D'Azur.

Highly recommend La Rivolte to everyone staying in Cote d'Azur.
Close to Cannes (10 minutes by car / 15 minutes by train), to Nice and to Antibes.
And definitely the best choice in Grasse!!

Pros:
- Amazing and huge territory with wonderful trees,
- Cosy rooms,
- Large pool,
- Delicious breakfast.

No Cons whatsoever!

We resided in La Rivolta for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute. La Rivolta is a familiar and beautiful property with a fantastic view of the Cote d'Azur and Grasse, has a wonderful park with many old palms and olive trees and a big pool. Always friendly and helpful Susie, the good soul of the house made our stay a remarkabel experience. Here one must have been!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and have the fantastic view. Internet access is available in each room. The larg...

We have just returned from a trip to the Cote D'Azur and came across this wonderful 19th century B and B on our travels. The location is a few minutes walk into Grasse but because of the landscaping and views of the Med, it felt as if we were staying in the heart of the countryside. The villa is a beautiful tradiitional French house, which has been sympathetically restored to retain all its essential character. The hostess, Susie, is the real star of the show, she has added some wonderful touches to the house and takes a real pride in looking after guests. From delicious breakfasts to recommendations for pleasurable days out, she made our stay at La Rivolte interesting, relaxing and very enjoyable. We particularly loved the spectacular train journey along the coast to Menton that she recommended, it was a fantastic day out. We will definitely be back to this glorious area and to La Rivolte!

Stayed in the Jasmine room for 3 nights. Spacious high ceilinged room, huge bathroom and private patio. Spacious, comfortable and clean.
Lovely grounds with secluded pool and views of the old town of Grasse which is well within walking distance. Breakfasts were served outdoors and were good. Cathy, the manager, is friendly and helpful. Not the easiest place to find ... but well located for visiting the French Riviera yet away from the crowds. Charming mansion from another era.

Everything about this boutique B & B speaks to the charm of the 19th century. The B & B is lovely and spacious, with nice common areas. The rooms are large and the baths well appointed. The grounds are extraordinary. We loved the wonderful breakfasts, prepared by Catherine, and just sitting on the terrace, gazing out over the valley and ancient city below. This is especially beautiful at night. It would have been enough to simply remain there, but walking to town (5 minutes) was delightful. Catherine suggested several short trips - one to Gourdon - which were fun. The area is gorgeous, but my fondest memories are of the beautiful view from the terrace.

Can't say enough about how gracious and helpful Cathy,the manager was. La Rivolte is a beautiful property with a lovely view of Grasse. Our bedroom was nice and spacious with large windows that opened to a beautiful view. Also 2 large beautiful rooms on the lower floor with many books and a nice plasma tv with tons of DVD's for the use of the guests. Also a great heated pool is on the grounds. Another plus, walking distance into town, 10 mins. Great breakfast served in a charming kitchen on the cooler days and outdoors on the warmer days. We enjoyed out time there,very much
