    Location 3.0 /10

    On a main road which climbs towards Saint Paul de Vence, Le Mas de Pierre is a short drive (or 35 minute walk) to the village entrance. When there's no traffic, Nice Côte d'Azur Airport can be reached after only 15-20 minutes.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    There are 48 rooms found in the various bastides at Le Mas de Pierre; almost all of them are decorated identically. While we love individually decorated rooms at Easyvoyage, we acknowledge that it becomes a challenge as the number of rooms increases. The style, dubbed "romantic Provencal," is seen across the hotel with slight variations in colour schemes, from buttercup yellow, to pastel rose pink and cornflower blue. The theme may be consistent however the rooms feature various layouts. The rooms themselves feature lovely, carved furnishings and various objets d'art. The sumptuous beds are draped in the softest, silkiest linens and pillows. Rooms on the first floor feature small, furnished balconies, while those on the ground floor possess private patios with a separate, gated entrance. The spotless bathrooms are not enormous but they are light and girly with fluffy robes and slippers and a deep tub lined with Fragonard toiletries. Meanwhile, the Privilege rooms feature more of the same décor but are slightly larger with couch and sitting area. Six junior suites will be added to Le Mas de Pierre in autumn 2011.

    Overview 9.70 /10

    Le Mas de Pierre consists of a cluster of bastides, or 'country houses' with authentic stone exteriors, each only two storeys high. Guests will be wowed before stepping through the front doors; on the other side of a grand, gated entrance fringed with immaculate gardens, a shiny Rolls Royce is parked at the end of a long driveway. The hotel's bar and restaurants are found in the same building as Reception, opening up on to a spacious, furnished terrace overlooking the manicured grounds.

    Le Mas de Pierre is proud of its 20,000m² of gardens, and rightly so; boasting an array of plants local to the region such as ancient olive trees, fragrant lavender, and orange, grapefruit and lemon trees. Meanwhile, the Jardin de Senteurs and the Potager de Pierre are also highlights, the latter growing herbs which are used in the kitchen. We loved the exotic garden which boasts 14 different varieties of orchid. Elsewhere, there are plenty of quiet corners to escape to, with sculptures and fountains dotted throughout the grounds, while an aviary adds a whimsical touch.

    The leisure facilities you'd expect from a five-star address are present; outdoor pool, spa, gym, jacuzzi, etc... The pool - large, heated and even 'musical' - is found on the lower terrace. It is flanked by neat rows of sun loungers in cabanas which can be privatised with the simple drape of a white curtain. The only shame is that the pool is not open for early risers who like their early morning swim. There's also a jacuzzi nearby, a swanky spa with sauna and hammam, and smallish fitness area.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    Le Mas de Pierre boasts two excellent restaurants; the Bistrot Pierre and the Table de Pierre. A fusion of décor styles - Rococo and Provencal - is present at Bistrot Pierre, the space awash with red, velvet and gold accents. The open kitchen overlooks the dining room, while diners have a view of the gardens thanks to the large floor to ceiling windows. There's also a large terrace for alfresco dining in warmer weather. We sampled a delicious fillet of hake with seasonal vegetables, and the shoulder of lamb with herb roasted baby potatoes...

    Bistrot Pierre is open every day for lunch and dinner but also doubles as the breakfast room where guests can enjoy an indulgent morning meal. Besides all the classic 'continental' fare (pastries, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, etc.) there is also an array of homemade cakes, crepes, bread, plus hot options like bacon and crispy hashbrowns. And how can we not mention the smoked salmon and chilled champagne!

    The Table de Pierre meanwhile, is open five days a week for dinner only with room for only 30 covers. Unfortunately, Easyvoyage didn't have the opportunity to dine at this celebrated gastronomic restaurant.

    On the far side of the lobby, the Princess Bar wouldn't be out of place in a stately English country manor. Reminiscent of perhaps an old gentlemen's club from the early 20th century, it invites guests to curl up in front of the fireplace - boasting a carved mantelpiece adorned with an old clock, gilt mirror frames and vintage portraits. Sink into the comfy armchairs with a cocktail whilst admiring the impressive display of objets d'art or the grand piano tucked away discreetly to one side. The exposed wooden beams, the are-they-or-aren't-they antiques, the bibliotheque bursting with books and porcelain items and the wrought iron chandeliers come together to create a wonderfully elegant but cosy ambience. The beverages don't come cheap though: try 19 euros (£16.70) for a glass of champagne or 8 euros (£7.05) for a glass of the local Côtes de Provence.
