We spent 2 weeks at Lou Messugo this summer and never wanted to leave. The pictures don’t do it justice, it’s far better in reality as they don’t capture the certain magic of the place. Sitting outside on a warm summer’s evening listening to the crickets and frogs is unbeatable. Well, only beaten by lying by the pool listening to the cicadas! The perfect summer sounds.
We were a family of 4 in the main house and my brother with his family of 3 in the appartment. It worked really well for us, giving each family their own space but spending most of each day together in the garden and pool. The main house is easily well enough equipped that everyone can eat together upstairs. Our 3 kids are all under 6 so we were happy to have the fence around the pool knowing they couldn't wander off and fall in.
The house is very well located for visits to all the nearby attractions. We especially loved Antibes, Saint Marguerite island, Grasse, Bois du Lutins, Gourdon, the Loup river and Gallice beach. There is a lot of useful information in the house - tourist brochures, maps, etc - but even more useful was the blog (Lou Messugo blog) written by the owners with so many unusual and different things to do and places to go. We followed the advice for picnic spots and activities for children. All excellent!
It is clear the owners love their area and do their best to make their guests have a great holiday. They share their passion and knowledge which makes a unique holiday.
We hope to be back one day!
