We recently spent 6 nights at Bastide Valmasque and enjoyed every minute there. Philippe and Claudia (and Jeanine) are great hosts and so helpful to our needs from giving us tips on where to sightsee, laundry service and leaving a special breakfast for us when we had to leave very early one morning. Their location is very central for day trips to hillside villages and the coastal towns. Breakfast is excellent and the rooms charming. Philippe is a good instructor for boule and got us hooked on the game. We highly recommend staying with them.
Some readers have found my contributions helpful, which I have "customized" to certain travel types. Therefore I shall continue this style of evaluations:
To start with - who has seen other evaluations of mine will realize that I hardly ever give 5 points. Bastide Valmasque with the owners Philippe and Claudia have earned them in every respect.
Before I go on: you should not go there if:
- you are looking for a swimming pool
- you are keen on huge breakfast buffets
- you require a restaurant to eat dinner at within the propoerty
- you want to be at the beachfront
- you need an aircondition in the room.
- you require an elevator
For all other reasons of travel, this little and cozy property is highly recommended.
Owners Philippe and Claudia give you all the useful hints about the area. They can answer virtually any question and give you all the support if you are looking for a certain type of restaurant, or even if you need a pharmacy or a doctor in the area. Philippe will give you hints about which beach to go at what hour (depending on the sun) ... just great.
Rooms are lovely decorated, and very clean, large and comfortable. Breakfast is simple but good, French style (baguette, fruit, jam, coffee, juice, cheese). The garden is lovely and a great place to take a rest.
By all means - very recommendable.
Even on very short notice Philippe and Claudia could help us with great accommodation. The rooms are all decorated in different styles and very clean and cute.
The garden and terrace are beautiful and during a great breakfast we received valuable tips from Philippe for day trips and dinner options in one of the many beautiful villages around Biot or in Nice.
This b&b ist very Beautiful peaceful!!! The rooms are very cute clean and everything is done with love!!! Furthermore you receive Trip advisor and Tipps, Restaurants Tipps .... Just like we were in paradise place !!! Merci
I can't speak highly enough about our impromptu stay with gorgeous hosts Philippe and Claudia at Bastide Valmasque! What a truly unique and special place, with so much warmth and spirit that instantly envelopes you as you enter the colorful building. With its carefully decorated Indian insprired interior and chic personal touches, such as the downstairs salon day beds and individual bedrooms with colored bathrooms - each beaming with personality. We left feeling happy, content with a sunny disposition and feel we have friends for life. I am glad I dared to try a villa with a difference and am sure I will never find anything quite the same again! All our love and see you in Ibiza!
