“Perfect, stylish retreat in incredibly picturesque location”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I booked the Loge du Chauffeur on the strength of past reviews but found out that it had been bought by new owners so was apprehensive about whether it would meet expectations. I needn't have worried: I have no idea what it was like before but I found it an amazing place for a holiday. Jane's welcome dinner helped, as it was a perfect slice of Provence. The glass of rose she served me set the tone for the week....

I cannot fault the gite; it's beautiful, well equipped, well laid out. The pool is fantastic and the layout of the property was wonderful. Lots of places to sit and soak up the sun and the amazing view. Beautiful villages nearby, and don't miss the bakery in Mons; they have the best croissants I've ever tasted.

Only sad that I booked one week, not two......

Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

After bravely deciding to ditch the plane and train it in to Nice from the
Uk we were nervous we had made the right decision as we left to venture up into the hills....but wow....from the welcome dinner to the pool, to the discreet but complete support from Jane the manager ...to dolphins in Antibes to people watching at le petit bonheur in mons the holiday was just perfect....which with two young children is an achievement.
We would totally recommend mas du Bois to anyone looking for stylish, tranquil,authentic France....

“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Have just spent a wonderful week staying at Mas du Bois Dore in the one-bedroomed La Cour gite. It is in the most perfect location on the hillside but within easy reach of the fashionable resorts of Cannes, Nice and even Monte Carlo is within travelling distance.

The gite itself was well equipped, tasteful French decor and lots of outdoor sitting areas. We were made to feel most welcome by Jane the on-site manager who is passionate about sharing her local knowledge which helped us get the most from our stay.

It was the perfect vacation which allowed us to get out and explore the local area whilst also being able to relax in the comfortable setting of the Mas du Bois Dore. Next year will be booking a two week break.

“Stay at Mas Du Bois Dore if you want to discover Provanes as it is”
Reviewed 4 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We were traveling with my spouse and daughter and decided to stay not at the sea shore but somewhere in a real Provencal village. This place was exactly what we were looking for - splendid view right from the house window, interesting and easy approachable points of interest (50 min to Cannes, 5 min to Mons, up to 20 min to the most of villages in the area), clean and very well equipped house , very responsive and ready to help house manager - Jane.
I would recommend the place to those travelling with children or oldies who prefer silence, style and hospitality of real Provencal village

“Honeymooners Delight”
Reviewed 17 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Oh my dear God - this place is unbelievable.

My wife and I went to Mas du Bois Dore for our honeymoon in mid-September and it was, simply put, the greatest vacation of our lives.

The Gite was great - with a beautiful poolside view that looked over olive groves and the mountainside. You are only a few miles from the quaintest little town, Mons, which has a terrific boulangerie and the most amazing restaurant (Chez Barbaroux) that our hosts recommended the first night. We took a day-trip to the Gorges du Verdon, which was an amazing experience.

Our hosts were terrific - they greeted us with open arms and then left us to do our own thing when we were looking for time alone.

I can't imagine a more wonderful place to spend a vacation - we are definitely going back for an anniversary down the line.

“Exactly What We Needed !”
Reviewed 19 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My husband, our two daughters and I spent one amazing week at the Mas du Bois Doré. We rented the Gîte "les 2 chevals", and it was perfect for us: the facilities, the view, the BBQ, the 2 bathroom... The breathtaking view as well as the isolation made these holidays the perfect choice to have both a resting and family quality time. Our hosts were adorable, available yet discreet. They decorated the gîte with taste and intelligence….good job! We’d love to go back and would recommend to any family with 2 kids (3 max.).

“Everything you can wish for (and more)”
Reviewed 2 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in Les Deux Chevaux, a tastefully decorated and spotless clean apartment (with the best mattresses ever!!). We arrived late at night, in a storm, and we couldn't see anything when we arrived. When we woke up and opened the door the next morning we were stunned: the view is so spectacular! We saw the glistening and inviting pool against a breathtaking decor of green hills. The scent of the herbs, the olive and fig trees, the sun ... This is what were looking for!
Bob and Lunette are just as wonderful. We were invited to a welcome diner in the garden, along with some other guests. Lunette made a delicious ratatouille and cucumber soup. The perfect start of a perfect holiday!!!
