Dear Renee & Patrick,

This house, the landscape, the garden, it grows on you, till the moment it feels as if we have owned the place for years. In this crowded area, to have a view where you don't see any other houses, it is very rare, but at Le Mazet it is just the case. You have the best spot in the whole region. We walked to the village, played ping pong, enjoyed the swimmingpool. My husband made many confitures and also dried peppers & tomatoes...

What a life you have created here Renee and Patrick, to share with others! Thanks for your confidence and trust to use your house. The most welcoming hosts we have ever encountered. Thanks for all, Simone & Frank - Oct.2016

About Patrick et Renee

For the purposes of our work we currently live near Paris in the countryside where we have a lovely farm, but we intend to definitely settle down in our Maison de Tourrettes soon.

Meanwhile we come here whenever possible. Thence we share delicious moments with family and friends, and we love to hear how other families from around the world have also really enjoyed our property in the south of France !

Why Patrick et Renee chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

We immediately felt at home as if we were born in this house, and we are happy to get involved in the same way for the well-being or our Tenants.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mazet is a very comfortable, well-presented converted farmhouse in beautiful grounds, on a very quiet road. Totally secluded, but the coast is only 20 mins away, and a 10 minute walk on a footpath takes you to the medieval walled town of Tourrettes. At night, you cannot see or hear anyone else.....

The web description is very accurate and fair, and the owner is delightful- she took enormous trouble to make sure everything was ok- it really felt like being lent a house, rather than renting it.

There are lots of sights locally- Vence, St Paul, Gourdon are all musts, but you can also go to the local beaches for the day (we would recommend the small sandy beach between Juan-Les-Pins and Cap D'Antibes), or pop into Nice in the evening (about 40 mins to the Cours Saleya), although we spent most nights outside chatting and waiting for the next mystery animal to arrive- tree frogs, wild boar, giant toads, owls, fireflies.. but nothing scary.

Inside the main house, nice furnishings, wi-fi worked as did everything else. The main upstairs bedroom is definitely superior to the other rooms, which are simple but ok.

I have never bothered to write a review before (hence the cliches) but its a great place- I would thoroughly recommend it

Notre petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

C'est la deuxième année que nous venons à Mazet des Loups. Et sûrement pas la dernière ! Nous sommes toujours aussi enthousiastes à propos de cette propriété... et de ses propriétaires ! Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux en famille, la maison est idéale pour se retrouver, se reposer, et profiter de cette belle région. Spacieuse, claire, chaleureuse, conviviale, c'est juste ce que nous recherchons. L'environnement est très typique et très authentique avec ses nombreux oliviers. La piscine est parfaite, même si l'on a des enfants en bas-âge (protégée, et avec une partie où ils ont pieds). Et, ce qui apporte ce supplément d'âme : l'accueil et la bienveillance de Renée et Patrick, si prévenants et si gentils.

Bref, ceci explique cela : goûtez-y une fois et vous reviendrez !

A lovely villa in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 10 (2 families including older teenagers and an 8 year old) and all had a very enjoyable, relaxing time at this villa. It was lovely - very attractive, spacious,clean and peaceful and the pool area was beautiful. The photos don't really do it justice.

The villa is conveniently located for visiting the many hilltop villages and the South Coast and was a quite steep but manageable 20 minute walk up to Tourettes sur loup where the teenagers in our party were able to walk up to bars in the evenings, giving them some independence.

The owner Renee was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Many thanks again Renee for a lovely stay!

Angela, Michael and family.

Great villa in wondeful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this well-equipped and nice villa, located in a slope with a very nice view. The house was clean, the garden is very big, the pool is just some few steps away through the garden. No disturbances from neighbours. The owner of the house is very pleasant. We warmly recommend this villa!

Owner's Response: I was very honored to have so lovely guests like you Tord and Family! The enthusiasm and the happiness you expressed throughout your stay, your Guestbook comments, your smiling faces and your tanned skin, are a great reward for me and Patrick who are doing everything possible to make you appreciate this piece of paradise. Our current hosts are also a pleasant family with very well-behaved kids and teenagers like yours. Grateful of the success of your holiday at our property and of excellent relationships that followed, we would love to give you the special advantage reserved for former tenants to a next vacation. Izac "l'enfant terrible si mignon" will probably swim alone then! Thank you again, Patrick & Renée

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

We are just back from a great holiday in Tourettes.We really love this area. The weather was superb and we enjoyed relaxing at the lovely pool at Le Mazet and eating at the local restaurants.The location is very peaceful with no neighbours overlooking the house and pool. A car is essential as it is about 5/10 minutes drive to the village but as we have been in this area before this is what we expected.A great place if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday in a delightful part of France.

Stephen and Mildred and family.

amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5

we booked Le Mazet for a girls weekend getaway and it was perfect! The house is set in a beautiful olive grove and t felt as though we were in the countryside. We went for a very picturesque walk to the Medieval village of Les Tourettes sur Loup, winding through trees and rocks to be rewarded with stunning views and a pretty village to explore. The house itself is spacious, elegant and very comfortable. We only spent the weekend but we left on Sunday feeling refreshed and as though we had been away for a week. I would definitely recommend Le Mazet and the generous and friendly reception of Renée (the owner) to anyone.

Car: recommended

The property is located in the countryside inland Nice-Grasse, a real field of sight just 30 minutes from Nice Airport and Antibes, just 5 minutes to the Village.

Tourrettes-sur-Loup is the most typical medieval village of the Gorges du Loup, between Grasse the City of Perfumers and the historic town of Vence. The famous Maeght Fondation in Saint-Paul is 7 km from the Villa, while walking or driving pleasantly along the forest.

Do not miss to visit the museums and admire Rodin, Matisse, Miro...but also the modern exhibitions, or simply stroll through the extraordinary gardens with your kids.

Immerse yourself in the French Riviera Coast along the beaches of Cannes, Antibes, above the scenic route of Nice, Monaco, Menton until Italy and the ferry to Corsica, not so far from the Alpin mountains. Gréolières Les Neiges family resort is about 40 minutes from home for skiing and sledding in wintertime.

Take advantage all year long of the lovely sunshine, Provencal markets, brocantes, local meals and wines, Mediterranean flora and beaches. Have fun during the Nice Carnival, enjoy the Cannes Film Festival, the Monaco Grand Prix...or just laze around La Maison by the pool with complete relaxation.

Other Activities: Tennis, golf, pétanque, archery, canyoning, ski
