What a lovely apartment! As others have already said, it is just as it appears on the photos. Plenty of room for the two of us with big comfy bed and wardrobe and drawers in the bedroom, decent size shower room and everything we needed in the bright open plan kitchen/living room. Good to have a dishwasher although I didn't do much cooking! Really appreciated the use of the washing machine and hubby made good use of the availability of the bike. Great location in a quiet area but only about a 10 minute walk down to the supermarket/ bars/restaurant and bakery etc. Our bakeries in UK just don't compare. Everyone we met in this area were friendly and helpful despite my rusty French. Although we were on bus route between Nice and Grasse I would recommend having a car as there so many places close by and further away to visit. Last, but not least, must say how welcoming and helpful Phoebe and Jeff were. Good communication from booking till arrival and on hand to offer help and advice whilst we were there. Really hope to visit again.

“A wonderful holiday at Lou Messugo.”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks at Lou Messugo. I had thought about not doing a review as I wanted to keep Lou Messugo to myself. However, when I tried to book for a week in October the gite was booked so the secret is out!

Everything at Lou Messugo is perfect. Everything previous guests have said is true.

Phoebe, the owner, and her family welcome you and look after you. They are lovely genuinely nice people who want you to enjoy your holiday. On arrival we found the gite very clean and fresh. Lovely towels and a lovely welcome pack. Usually I spend an hour cleaning an apartment or gite when I arrive but no need for that at Lou Messugo. All the cutlery, crockery and utensils are spotless. We did not cook but it looks as if every utensil is there for you including egg cups.

Phoebe leaves a ring binder in the gite that has lots of information about the gite, area, places to visit, tips, shopping, restaurants etc. It includes the phone numbers of the local take away's for delivery. Phoebe thinks of everything as she has written in French the address of the gite so you can easily phone for a delivery. Also, in the bedside drawers are leaflets for everything on the Cote d'Azur. There is also a bookshelf in the living area with guide books for the area including beaches. Phoebe knows everything about the area and it is great having local knowledge like knowing what are the best beaches to visit, cost of private beaches, best places to eat and so on.

There is a great take away called Pizza Pins that deliver. Phoebe has left a note of the quick way to walk into the town which brings you out at Pizza Pins outdoor seating area. It is very reasonably priced.

Lou Messugo is perfecly placed to tour the area. There are lots of places to visit. We went to Monaco twice, Nice, Antibes, Grasse, Gourdon, Golf Juan, Cannes, and Juan Les Pins. All were fantastic. We also spent a few days just sitting in the beautiful large garden enjoying the sunshine, listening to the birds and watching lots and lots of butterflies which I rarely now see in the UK.

During our stay the Tour de France passed near Lou Messugo and Phoebe invited us to join her, her family and neighbours and friends who were going to watch it. We had a truly wonderful day. Thanks to their local knowledge on where to go and watch it, the cyclists were going uphill rather slowly so we had a great view and we managed to get some great photos.

We cannot wait to return. In fact, we had such a wonderful time at Lou Messugo that we didn't want to come home and we have seriously thought about moving to Roquefort Les Pins. It was that good.

“Clean, comfortable & private, a great base for exploring and relaxing”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent 9 nights at Lou Messugo and it was a lovely place to be based. Phoebe, the owner was incredibly helpful and had provided items from plastic beakers to sand castles to make our holiday with a 2 year old a lot easier and saved on our luggage costs! The apartment was clean and modern and we enjoyed the garden, perfect for pottering about if you are toddler who can't sit still. There was a well stocked library that I just wish I could've made use of had I had the time! Roquefort-les-Pins is well located for exploring the wider area and itself had all the usual ameneties and a short drive or a good walk away from the apartment we could reach the shops and restaurants. So although a car is required to make the most of the area it wasn't essential every day - much appreciated by the designated driver.

Thanks for your review, seen from the rare perspective of bad weather holiday makers! You were very unlucky, I think you had the worst week of the spring. But I'm so pleased you enjoyed your holiday none-the-less. Please do come back again!

“Lovely stay!”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our family of 4 spent great holidays at Lou Messugo in April. We thoroughly enjoyed the clean adn tastefully decorated apartment. It is as nice looking as on the photos.
It's a peaceful, tranquil spot, yet centrally located for all attractions at the area. The biggest 'asset' is Phoebe herself with her encyclopedic knowledge of the area, things to do and helpful tips.
