“Great base for exploring Riveira”
Reviewed 7 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Just returned from Lou Messugo, tranquil setting well equipped. Helpful hostess, but not intrusive. We explored Nice to Cap Ferrat, Antibes to Cannes and the lovely mountain villages, Something for everyone, just take it easy or explore. A wealth of good places to eat and plenty of fresh local produce.

“Great base for fab part of France”
Reviewed 15 June 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We spent a fabulous week at LM and feel like we only just scratched the surface of all the things to do/places to visit in this beautiful area. Phoebe was an excellent hostess & gave us plenty of suggestions for day trips, with particular suggestions regarding things our 7 & 9 year olds could enjoy doing while mum & dad were touring. Highlights were: trip to spectacular Gourdon and the trail down to the confiserie/sweet shop in the valley; the sensational Bois de Lutins, a charmingly low-tech fun park for kids (with nets high in the trees & fairies/pixies for the kids to find in the tree tops); Friday market in Valbonne; strolling around Antibes eating socca from the old market and then the kids cooling off in the fountains in the square; and of course beignets at the beach with a particularly fun time jumping off the rocks at la Pointe de l'Aiguille. It was great to come back to this little oasis at the end of each busy day and the kids enjoyed playing with [the hosts' kids] on the trampoline & in the pool. The gîte was well-appointed and had everything we needed for a comfy stay. Mum and dad stayed in the main b/r, kids on the pullout in the living room. Thanks Ph, JF, O & L for your hospitality! Hope to be back one day.

“A great spot, away from the crowds yet very central to the best of the French Riviera & the mountain villages around.”
Reviewed 22 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Lou Messugo was a lovely place to base ourselves for the few days we had in this area. The apartment is well thought out, beutifully decorated & spotlessly clean with all the mod cons you would want. There is lots of outdoor space for children to run around and although the weather didn't' permit while we were there in April, there is a pool for a swim. Our teenage son especially appreciated the satellite tv channels for some English stations and sport. Phoebe and her family were very hospitable & extremely helpful with any assistance we needed. Phoebe has great information on the 'must see' places and how to get to these on great day trips that we thoroughly enjoyed. It's an amazing location as the coast is within 30 minutes drive, Grasse only 10 mins away and you can reach an alpine village within a 2 hour drive through the most beautiful scenery. All in all we thought Lou Messugo was a real find and vey reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend the apartment to a couple or small family.
