Set on a four acre park studded with olive trees near the medieval village of St. Paul-de-Vence, Le Mas de Pierre is a fancy French country retreat housed in seven traditional stone farmhouses. The 54 guestrooms are decorated in typical Provencal style with antique furniture, French linens and tapestry rugs, and most feature a terrace or a private garden with views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Spend your days lounging in a private cabana by the pool, or indulging in a massage at the spa. In the evening, dine alfresco on top-notch cuisine at Le Table de Pierre where many of the ingredients are grown on-site. The stellar location makes it easy to explore the best of the South of France and you can hit the Côte d’Azur in less than 15 minutes.
In the Area
Many rooms have views of the hilltops and changeable Mediterranean light that drew artists like Marc Chagall to the area. The small village of St. Paul-de-Vence itself is worth getting lost in; go for a walk along its walls, explore the cobbled back streets, and pause for a coffee in a classic French cafe. And if the sleepy village leaves you restless, the gilded pleasures of Nice and Monaco are a short drive away.
How to Get There
My husband and I enjoyed another idyllic week at Le Mas de Pierre where we were thoroughly spoilt by Audrey Jorge, the General Manager and her team.
We stayed in a beautiful first floor room which had been recently refurbished with a pretty Provençal style balcony over looking the stunning grounds and pool.
This was the first time my husband and I had stayed at the hotel without hiring a car and exploring the surrounding area. However we still found plenty to do taking advantage of some of the many optional activities on offer such as Pilates, ice cream tasting with the pastry chef and a fantastic chauffeur driven ride in a convertible Rolls Royce.
The hotel has a unique relaxing atmosphere, and the food and service as always was exemplary.
The hotel is set in exquisite fragrant gardens dotted with impressive sculptures.
We thoroughly enjoyed dining in the hotel on the restaurant terrace, and one of the highlights of our stay was the garden barbecue party on the Thursday evening with live music.
It is easy to go and to from St Paul de Vence in the complimentary shuttle service provided by the hotel.
We are obviously not alone in our love for this hotel as we met many other guests who stay at the hotel each year as we do.
We cannot wait for our next stay!
Lovely boutique hotel. Communication could sometimes be difficult in English, eg, instructions to housekeeping misunderstood, and service can be a bit slow. But overall the atmosphere is calm, valet parking is efficient (excellent underground garage), and the grounds are pretty. The location, 15-20 min from Nice airport, is excellent. It's a good base for the South of France (close to Monaco, Nice, Cannes etc) without being suffocated by crowds and tourists. It does not really cater to families (so no screaming kids by the pool) as most rooms don't take extra beds, except for our ground floor suite which has a small but useful private terrace.
After a rocky start to our time in France (luggage delayed by Air France) we arrived at this stunning hotel. We were shown to a beautiful room with a quiet outlook that was perfect for us. Unfortunately the room had a very strange odour presumably coming from the drains in the shower room. Housekeeping tried unsuccessfully to rid the room of this smell and when we had the opportunity to discuss the matter with the manager ( during her meet and greet hour) she immediately arranged for an upgrade room in the private part of the hotel.
We can’t thank Audrey enough for stepping in to make our stay at Le Mas De Pierre even more relaxing and enjoyable than we thought was possible at this already luxurious hotel.
The ground for this hotel are simply beautiful. That is where it all stops unfortunately. The service, no matter if you are at the front desk, the valet, the bar, outdoor breakfast is simply poor at best! Repeatedly we would call to have our car brought around and get there, no car. We ask and wait another 10-15 minutes to get into our car. We sat outside one morning for breakfast and no one waited on us so we finally left. It turned out it was warm in October and the entire hotel had somehow turned off their air conditioning for the season.....ever heard of that? So we asked for a fan as our room was 88 degrees F. They didn't have anymore! We finally receive one on our third and final night. The bar, no one there.....waiting, waiting, waiting.......we left and went to Saint Paul de Vence. Pick somewhere else to stay.
Just back from an idyllic two weeks at " le mas de Pierre" boutique hotel at St. Paul de Vance.
The service was outstanding and the staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Our butler Mathias was superb as was the general manager Andree who was always around and asking if we were all right unlike many G.M's who you never see during your stay.. def will go back and def recommend it for a total chill out in absolute luxury.
