We have got lot of information and seen many pictures beforehand, but still Mas du Bois Dore exceed expectations. Old farm renovated with taste, beautiful green garden surrounded by olive trees. The view to the walley was breathtaking.
The rooms were excellent and cool and refreshing after hot juny days outside.
Best thing was quet evenigs sitting in the garden or by the pool, watching beautiful sunsets.
Surrounding provence was worth visiting, pictoresgue old towns and amazing
Canyon du Verdon, the views we never forget.
We'll come back!!!

We have just returned from Mas du Bois Dore, and enjoyed the flexibility of staying in both the Deux Cheveux and Chauffeurs accommodation (both 2x bedrooms). They are both superbly equipped with mod cons, the former perhaps best fro families with 2x bunks in one room. But the real beauty of the place is all around you. Access via the circuitous roads may be seen as a draw back to some, but to us it gave the place its very character and tranquil identity, helped by the Natura 2000 designation of the Siagne valley over which you look. Frankly we are loathed to say more as this is a gem we would not really want to share, but we can deservedly acclaim the staff here, Jane in particular, who made our stay perfect - the right degree of help and isolation given. Despite restricted roads to the site, there is plenty to see nearby, and an excellent supermarche near Montaroux. We loved it.

Nous sommes restes mon mari, moi et notre fille de 16 mois dans le superbe gite les deux chevaux amenage avec gout dans les hauteurs de provence. La route pour arrivee au gite est sinueuse, mais la vue est imprenable et l'endroit est ideal pour se reposer, tres au calme. Rob et Lunette sont tres chaleureux et accueillants, mais respectent aussi l'intimite de leurs hotes. Leur chien est tres calme et ne derange pas. Le site internet est tres bien fait et les photos exactes.
La piscine est chauffee a 25C, et chacun des 3 gites est equipe de son propre barbecue. L'endroit est a 50min de Cannes, mais on peut tout aussi bien y rester la journee pour se reposer.
Etant venu en avion de Londres, nous n'avions pas pu emmener de jouer pour notre fille, mais Bob et Lunette etaient equipes (trycicle, jouets pour 18 mois, jouets pour la plage).
Les hotes sont invites a diner le dimanche soir s'ils le souhaitent pour un repas raffine.
La decoration des gites est de qualite, et les produits de bases sont fournis dans la cuisine (huile, sel, produits menagers).
Il fait 5C de moins a Mons que sur les plages, due a l'altitude, ce qui rend le climat plus agreable pendant les grandes chaleurs.
Pour les familles, notez que la piscine n'est pas protegee, meme s'il y a une alarme dans le cas d'une chute, donc a surveiller pour les enfants. Le gite n'a pas de baignoire ce qui peut etre difficile pour laver un jeune enfant. Il a fallu s'adapter et prendre nos douches avec le bebe, ce qui fut une experience sympa au final!
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.

This was the perfect location for a relaxing family holiday. My husband and I, and our 2 sons (age 9 and 12)spent a wonderful week here. We discovered some lovely villages, spent time on the beach, discovered the lovely nearby gorge de saignole and really enjoyed relaxing beside the pool and "eating in." Everything you need is provided, from gas grill to towels for the pool. Bob and Lunette are wonderful hosts and have really created a wonderful place, beautifully kept and decorated. We would love to return and highly recommend Mas du bois doré.

My wife and I stayed here while we were in the area for the Monaco Grand Prix.It's hard to imagine a more storybook setting than this one.Beautiful grounds,thoughtful decor inside our gite.It's location was great for us, because we wanted to see the beach cities of Cannes, Nice and Monaco, but didn't want to miss out on the relaxation that a more pastoral property like this provides.We were able to do day trips between aix and Monaco, then return at the end of the day.Truly a fine representation of the Provence/Var region.We will be back!

Mas du Bois Dore is the perfect spot for a vacation in Provence. Nestled among the perched villages with sensational views from the gites, pool and terrace off the grand salon, the Mas is well located for exploratory day trips and well situated for days devoted to relaxing in the Provencal sunshine. The Jones are the most gracious of hosts and provide exquisitely comfortable and beautifully decorated accomodations.

Staying at Mas Du Bois Dore was the highlight of our two week trip to England and France. We did not know exactly what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The property is near the top of a mountain with a scenic beautiful drive through dense forest on a winding mountain road with views of the mountains and valleys. It was just another world we did not know existed, just beautiful.
On arrival we were met by Bob Jones the owner and host. Bob is originally from Texas and he gave us a warm welcome and tour of the property. Bob and his wife Lunette were gracious and accommodating making us feel that our visit was really appreciated.
The property is a beautiful French farm producing olives from the many olive trees on terraces surrounding the large stone farm house. Bob and Lunette the owners have worked hard to make each of the guest units unique and wonderful. They have done a great job remodeling the property.
The location was perfect for us. We went to the nearby lake and spent the afternoon on a paddle boat paddling and swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. We also took several day trips to the French Riviera by Cannes and even a day trip to Italy. The area is amazing. The weather was great, and even though it was hot down a sea level in July, it was cool and much less humid up on the mountain at the B & B.
We recommend staying here for anyone that wants to see the wonderful mountaintop villages of rural France and the French Riviera. You can literally spend hours looking around the quaint villages in the surrounding mountains and shopping in the wonderful little shops there. Also the food and restaurants in the nearby villages were wonderful. Every thing is prepared fresh and the cooking is superb.
If you are looking for a once in a lifetime adventure in the beautiful south of France stay here.
