My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We did not spend a considerable amount of time on property but the time we did spend was nice and relaxing.
PROPERTY OVERALL: The Mas de Pierre property is nicely set on a hilltop in the Saint Paul de Vence area overlooking the valley below. It is comprised of several stone buildings surrounding a garden and pool. The property is very well maintained and has a beautiful terrace where meals are served. Overall staff was excellent. A free shuttle service is offered to the nearby town of Saint Paul de Vence and, if given the choice, a ride in the open air 1950s fiat is a worthwhile experience. There is parking on site and given the narrow roads and relative lack of parking, it's not a bad idea to leave the car parked. While we didn't use the pool, it looked to be well maintained and had plenty of cabanas available for guests.
ROOM: Our room (room 100), while small, was tastefully decorated with antiques (or good replicas). The room had a private outdoor terrace and a very comfortable bed. The washroom while tight was more than adequate and was also adorned with lovely furnishings. Our package included a bottle of Champagne and a plate of pastries on arrival. Both were very nice.
RESTAURANT: we had breakfast daily and dinner one night at the hotel. Breakfast was a buffet and eggs and omelettes were available to order. The buffet was adequate with fresh breads, croissants, fruit, salmon and yogurt. The dining room setting was phenomenal. Truly relaxing. Service was very good.
Dinner was served on the same terrace and was also lovely (save the smoking that takes pace outside). Food was fresh and nicely presented. While not the best meal of the trip, it was nonetheless very good and of a standard that would be expected of a hotel of this caliber. Overall, we were very happy with the restaurant.
SPA AND GYM: My wife and I both had massages at the spa. The spa, while small, was relaxing and well maintained. The massages (which were included in our package) were excellent. The gym, however, was the one notable shortcoming of the property. It was small and not well maintained (paint chipping, very limited equipment). There was no water bottle in the gym itself and on one of two days, there were no towels. As well, on the second day of our trip, the air conditioning was not working which is very noticeable when its 34C outside.
Overall,our stay at this hotel was very nice. It is a hotel very well suited to its location. The surrounding environs are calming and serene. While we did see some children at the resort, it is much better united for couples and people trying to enjoy some relaxation and quiet. Perfect for a long weekend getaway.
