I apologise for the delay in writing this review. I have been elsewhere and out of range of wifi. So, we went here in July and had an absolutely wonderful time with Steve and Clare. Everything here was perfect, a lovely pool, your own fridge and BBQ, we arrived quite late on our first evening and Clare provided us with...

My boyfriend and I stayed at la surprise during our trip to southern France! Personally it was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast and after this stay at la surprise we will never book a hotel again! La surprise is really a fantastic place, tucked away in the small narrow roads I could hardly wait to arrive,...

We have stayed 1 night in June 2015 in La Surprise and loved every second spent in this B&B. The house is a haven of peace. Steve and Clare are charming hosts, who made us feel at home immediately. The room we were offered was perfect: lovely decoration, comfortable bed, immaculate clean, huge bathroom and an amazing view onto the...

We stayed at La Surprise in late May for two nights and had a great time! Clare and Steve were very friendly, attentive and hospitable hosts who gave us lots of tips on what to do in the area. We really enjoyed talking to them and learning about Provence from their long experience. They prepared a delicious breakfast every morning...

For five years, since our friends moved out to Grasse, my wife and I have been promising ourselves a trip to visit them. We finally made it in May 2015 and stayed for five nights, sans enfants, with Steven and Clare at La Surprise. And what a surprise! An oasis of calm in an otherwise lively corner of France. Tucked...

What a wonderful place. Enjoy your coffee and croissants, or glass of local wine, in the delightful gardens up in the hills with views across to the Med. Clare and Steve are the most welcoming of hosts, ensuring that you are able to make the most of your say in this extraordinary area. We highly recommend a visit. You will...

We stayed at La Surprise in early September with our daughter and her fiancée. It's a delightful place with stunning views and a lovely swimming pool. Breakfasts were delicious. Steve and Claire were the perfect hosts and extremely helpful with recommendations and directions, and dropping us off in Grasse for dinner. Having a BBQ to use was a real plus....

Coming out of an Antipodean winter into this warm charming place, we thought La Surprise a slice of heaven. Wonderful views, setting with pool and cabana area was outstanding. First time arriving by car is a little challenging but Steve and Claire give you all the necessary tips to enable local routes to be negotiated. Particularly impressed by Steve and...

This is the second time we have stayed at La Surprise. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we decided to return for our Babymoon, this time for a week.

La Surprise is a beautiful BandB in Grasse in easy reach of the Cote DAzur. The house is stunning, the pool fabulous but the ‘can do’ attitutude of Steve and Claire makes this the perfect place to stay when visiting the South of France. From Steve's lifts to their own lonely planet - the owners had thought of everything to...

“Three rooms from memory. We had the large room downstairs which was great.”

“The rooms are small with no seating available. It is set up so guests can enjoy the outside area where there are two dining tables with chairs in addition with lounge chairs poolside. When we travel, we do not spend a lot of time in our rooms so this was not a problem.”
