Why Mas Peonie chose Grasse

We fell in love with the house and bought it in 2008 thinking it would be our retirement home of the future but moved there soon after. I spent the next four years renovating this old stone cottage, blogging, laughing at my terrible french and enjoying the good life, I am truly thrilled with the results as I hope you will be. It is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend or a family reunion. Although it is a big house, it always feels homey. There are five garden terraces below the house leading to the swimming pool and an extensive plot in front of the house full of olive trees.

We love exploring the beautiful old villages, Grasse being the perfume capital of the world and also a great stop off for gifts and to spoil ourselves! We love walking in the pine forests, going to lake St Cassien , skiing and of course visiting the must see areas of the French Riviera; Cannes, St Tropez, Monaco, St Remo and all the other gorgeous places but secretly my favourite pastime, the one I love most of all are the flea markets!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is managed by an amazing woman, Tracy, who will be there to meet and greet you but more importantly, if you have any special requirements eg; food hamper, chef, limousine service and so much more, just ask. She is fluent in French and English and as a local she can tell you what's on in the area.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 12 (8 adults and 4 children ranging from 11 to 16) staying for a week in July 2018, and we could not have been happier with Mas Peonie. The house was spotless, spacious and comfortable with multiple areas for members of our group to either gather or get away, as desired. We particularly enjoyed the large great room and the balcony that runs the length of the house and has stunning views. The grounds are very picturesque and beautifully groomed, with multiple terraces and several quiet spots to sit with a book and a coffee. The pool was a real highlight and is clean, large and well stocked with multiple lounges and umbrellas. It is clear that the owners take great pride and love in caring for the property, with stunning the artwork and sculptures located throughout the house and gardens. Tracy was an absolute gem, and provided several fantastic recommendations as well as assistance with booking a personal chef for a fabulous birthday meal!

The house is just a few quick minutes from Grasse and Cabris, and approximately 30 minutes from Cannes. If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax and unwind with your family or friends in a quiet but still easily accessible location then this is the perfect place for your holiday getaway.

A beautiful and peaceful place to enjoy this lovely part of the world

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed Mas Peonie and in particular the incredibly peaceful setting that the house and beautiful pool enjoy. Tucked away from the overly busy areas this property is relaxation personified. The pool was a real highlight for us and honestly we even left the beach one day after 2 hours as we just looked at each other and said "why are we here when its so beautiful at the house"?!

The location we really loved. The drive is very steep, but wasn't an issue for us and I think part of the charm of Mas Peonie.

The house has really great air conditioning that's not noisy and even in the middle of a heat wave with temps around 36-38c we slept so well.

We did a mixture of cooking in and obviously dining out in the lovely Mougins and Cabris. Our only feedback would be that the kitchen, whilst very well equipped, could do with a few items replaced, such as the dishwasher. But Tracy was outstanding throughout our stay and on hand to help with any queries we had.

We'd love to return!

We had an amazing stay with my husband, sister and our two daughters!... beautiful home with full of character and the girls room were decorated with the right toys to the ace! Tracy as the the manager was great, she was very attentive and helpful to us as far as finding the right restaurants, even at some point she was trying to help us with hiring a chef ... you do need to have car specially if you're planning to go for sight seeing, but it is possible also to take uber except there's a long wait to it...My only suggestion to the owner would be that I wish the house was stock with some basic toiletries such as shampoo/ soap or cleaning detergent, up on arrival. Other than that, Tracy welcomed us with a delicious cheez and wine spread!...i'd definitely go back again, Thank you for your hospitality!

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa Mas Peonie is. It comfortably accommodated the 10 of us without falling over each other. The bedrooms are wonderfully decorated and very comfortable, especially with the quiet air conditioning for those hot nights. The kitchen is modern and well equipped, although the built in ice machine took a severe hammering during our 2 week stay! The heated pool was the perfect temperature and we all loved it. I swear the kids developed gills. The pictures of the property do not do justice; it Is much better.

The first time you use the driveway, there was a bit of a 'gulp' as it is quite steep, but you soon get used to it and is easy to navigate.

Grasse is close to Monaco, Antibes, Cannes and we enjoyed exploring, although a word of warning about the traffic (August), which was horrendous. Closer to home we really enjoyed Cabris, which is a short car journey from Mas Peonie. A couple of wonderful restaurants and the added bonus of a full blown circus while we were there!

I have to mention Tracy, who was wonderful throughout our stay. She was there to greet us, with a great welcome hamper (which included a sizable bottle of rose!) and was always on hand for any queries.

Overall, a truly stunning villa that exceeded expectations, which we would highly recommend.

Beautiful home, gorgeous grounds, great location!

  • 5 of 5

“Our family had an incredible holiday at Nicole’s beautiful home. The pictures give you a sense of how amazing the property is, but once you are there in person, you will want to pinch yourself at your good fortune! The house, the pool, the grounds, the view, and the location all guarantee you a great trip. Nicole ensured we had everything we needed, including a very welcome, welcome basket, as we arrived quite late and she was quick to offer advice in the middle of our trip when needed. While we enjoyed some of the many fine dining options in the region, we really loved shopping the markets and cooking our own fabulous meal in the gourmet kitchen and then enjoying our efforts on the terrace. The area of Grasse is well situated as you are able to easily visit Nice, Cannes, and other beach towns and drive into the mountains to explore the hill towns. We highly recommend Mas Peonie! ”

Saint Francois is a small village nestled in the hills overlooking the 'Vallee Verte', 5 mins West of the Historic town of Grasse (world capital of perfume). Grasse is situated on the border of the Côte d'Azur and Provence. Nice Airport (40 min), Cannes (25 min), Monte Carlo (1hr), or in the winter months the skiing is less than an hour’s drive!

'Mas Peonie is well situated for the highlights of the Cote d'Azur & the French Riviera. There are fabulous restaurants offering fine dining with the 5 star hotel restaurant La Bastide Saint-Antoine (5 mins), the beautiful L'Auberge du Vieux Château on the hill top village of nearby Cabris( 5mins), not forgetting the many fabulous restaurants in Mougins (15 mins).

There are plenty of old provencal villages, where famous Artists have trodden before such as St. Paul de Vence, Beaulieu-sur-mer, Villefrance, and Eze, all within easy reach.

Many respected golf clubs within 30 mins:

Golf Country Club de Saint-Donat

Golf de Biot

Royal Mougins Golf Club

Terre Blanche Four Seasons Resort.

Lac St Cassien is a must see, for a refreshing swim in the fresh water lake (20 mins). See Monaco (1hr) and Nice by car or take the train from Grasse and enjoy a scenic journey along the coast. Try reaching St Tropez by ferry from Ste. Maxime – it misses out on the worst of the traffic, and you get a great view of the town as you approach it from the sea, just a 15 minute trip.

The spectacular Verdon Gorges are a 2-hour drive away. A magnificent canyon with gigantic cliffs of calcareous rock, you can enjoy the Azur fresh water lakes, or for the more adventurous do some white water rafting in the intertwining rivers.
