“Idyllic place and a wonderful, memorable stay for our family” We had the pleasure of staying at Mas Du Bois Dore for one week at the end of april/early May 2012. We were traveling with our 2 year old daughter and had such an amazing time. It was a terrific launching spot for exploring the hilltowns of the Haut Var as well as the Cote d'Azur. The property is wonderfully and lovingly kept by Bob and Lunette. The irises were blooming and I was a huge fan of the cook's garden with every herb you might imagine. I visited the garden nearly every evening to get some necessary ingredients for dinner. We stayed in the Loge du Chaffeur and were very comfortable. They were kind enough to provide us with a special chair for our daughter as well and a crib. There was everything we needed in the kitchen for pots and pans, knives, and having laundry was ideal. The house was in excellent condition and beautifully furnished. The only minor negative was that the property is a little remote and so going to the supermarket was something we always did on our way home from a day's adventure, and it also took us longer than expected to get to places because we weren't willing to zip up and down the hill as a local might. There is a little market in the nearby town of Mons, and we also went there for a quick bread or something. The winding roads along the gorge up to the property afford you spectacular views and our daughter especially loved the cows along the side of the road and the noise that their cow bells made as they wandered about. We can't say enough great things about the Mas du Bois Dore. It was a perfect place for our family to stay. It wasn't warm enough to use the pool, but I imagine on a future stay (in a warmer month) we might use the pool, the bbq and never leave.
