“Gorgeous vacation rental”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We knew we'd found somewhere special when we walked in and found a bunch of mimosa from the garden (beautiful perfume), a warm baguette and a bottle of local wine waiting for us. Then we discovered goats cheese and olives in the fridge! The host cared so much about making our stay special and unique with such a warm welcome we couldn't have asked for more. She provides plenty of brochures, a full folder of info and writes an awesome blog that we'd been following for a while full of great things (check it out at loumessugo.com) . She is also available either direct or by text/email for instant recommendations and ideas for what to do (even in the rain). Honestly, we chose this place because of all the great reviews and we were so happy we did. The hype is justified, this is one great place!

“Great base for touring the Côte d'Azur”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Currently living in Beijing but having lived in Nice previously, we wanted to visit old friends but wanted be independant at the same time. Lou Messugo offered us everything we needed! Located in Roquefort les Pins, it was close enough for us to visit friends in Biot, Valbonne, Nice etc. I stayed there with my two sons (16 and 10) and there was plenty of room for the three of us (my husband couldn't come but with one double bed and a double sofa bed, there would have been tons of space for him too!)
The kitchen was fully equipped so we were able to make breakfast and sometimes dinners for ourselves. The gîte owner, Phoebe, even allowed us to use her washing machine a couple of times which was an added bonus (you definitely wouldn't get that in a normal B&B). The apartment was spotless. Obviously, as we came in the winter, we didn't make the most of the garden, terrace, BBQ, lovely pool... it just means will have to come back during the warmer months!

We visited Lou Messugo three years ago and always planned to come back. This trip was even better than the last. We enjoyed wonderful walking and cycling in brilliant April sunshine.

The Gite is really well set up for families and the children love the trampoline.
