Le Mas du Naoc A Guesthouse in Cabris

A few kilometers from Grasse, this guesthouse with its panoramic view over the bay of Cannes is an ode to life on the Côte d’Azur. A serene and secret address…

Within the birthplace of perfume, the Maison du Naoc welcomes visitors to a haven of peace ideally located if you wish to visit the French Riviera and its hinterland. Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Nice but also Mougins and Grasse, which is only a few kilometers from Cabris. Which is only if this place doesn’t make you want to stay in the park with your nose in a book, or sunbake by the pool of the typically Provençale 18th-century farmhouse. With its charming 3 bedrooms and suite, the Mas de Naoc meets the needs of travelers in search of authentic Provence mixed with modernity. The interior decoration, in tones of beige, ochre and grey, favors the natural. The Tadelakt covered walls bestow to the whole a warm and intense Mediterranean atmosphere.

As for the furniture, it’s predominantly made of wood, from the antique beds to the vintage doors. Traditional pieces are mixed up with vintage pieces with an almost industrial style. Each room seems to have been conceived of like a cocoon that allows Provence’s sublime light to penetrate, a light so dear to painters like Bonnard or Van Gogh. Like a receptacle of calm and measured light, the Mas du Naoc appears to be the perfect pause in a journey through Provence, far from the hustle and bustle of the Riviera, sometimes so busy in summer. In the park that surrounds the house, flowers from Provence remind us of our proximity to the historic fields dedicated to perfume creation: jasmine, orange flower, olives etc. grow alongside of course the obligatory palm trees of a Riviera landscape. Expect to pay between 115 and 170 euros, breakfast included, for a night at the Mas du Naoc, without forgetting the welcome from hosts Sandra and Jérôme Maingret. You won’t regret it.
