Right: it’s getting to the end of October, Halloween is nearly here, then November, and then out of nowhere… Christmas.

We all love a good Christmas. The family, the food, the presents, and my personal favourite, the music! But, admittedly, Christmas can also be a stressful time of year, especially for parents.

Getting everyone the right gift, planning far enough ahead that you don’t miss anyone out, stocking up the snack cupboard (is it really Christmas without the tin of Quality Streets?). For a lot of people, Christmas may only be a one-day affair but the thinking starts months ahead.

That sounds stressful…

It can be, but thankfully, Le Mas Candille’s got the perfect trick to make the arrival of the holiday season a stress-free affair!

While October is a month reserved for autumn and Halloween, and December is reserved for family celebrations, November can often be left behind. Because of this, it can be easy to fall into the habit of using the month as a pre-December prep.

So why not take a break? Take a break from the stress of preparing, overthinking, and stocking!

What Better Place than the Sunny South of France to Relax?

With the sun and laid-back atmosphere of the French Riviera, you’ll be in the right spot to relax before the hectic holiday season.

A weekend break for you and your partner will be just the thing to get you in the spirit of the holidays.

Let’s go through 5 reasons why a few days off at Le Mas Candille in the south of France is just the thing you need to unwind and relax!

1. The Weather

No matter where you’re located in the world, you probably enjoy a lazy sunny afternoon.

November is an excellent time to visit the south of France weather-wise. The sun shines all year-round on the French Riviera, and November is a perfect month to take advantage of it.

Without the hustle of the summer tourists, you’ll be able to peacefully stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and soak up the autumnal sun.

Le Mas Candille is also proud of its region: if you are interested in outdoor activities such as hiking and seaside walks, the temperate November weather and stunning sunshine will have you feeling like it’s summertime again.

2. The prices

Christmas and summertime can be expensive times to travel. As people save up to travel in these times, they often neglect the in-between times.

The months of October and November especially are excellent times to travel to the French Riviera. While the sunny weather is one reason for this, another great reason is that prices for flights and rooms are significantly lower, while the quality remains the same.

What could be more relaxing than a 5-star weekend in the south of France, staying in one of the Côte d’Azur’s most stunning hotels, and knowing it’s all for an excellent price?

3. How About a Spa Weekend?

At Le Mas Candille, we can’t stress enough how important it is to take time for yourself. Especially in the weeks and months before big family celebrations! In this day and age, it can be quite difficult to get family together as people spread out across cities and countries. So, when you manage to get everyone together, you don’t want to be feeling tired or in pain from any old injuries.

Including a spa break in your weekend away will make sure you’re in top shape for the holidays!

To truly make a weekend break as relaxing as possible, why not treat yourself to a spa treatment? How about a world-class massage to help with your back pain? Or a luxurious manicure and pedicure to give your feet and hands a break?

Le Mas Candille’s award-winning spa is located right in the hotel, only a few minutes’ walk from guest rooms. We have a range of luxury treatments available for our guests seven days a week.

What’s more, all of our guests can enjoy the Spa Candille’s facilities. Spending a Sunday afternoon in a Jacuzzi overlooking the hills of Grasse sounds pretty relaxing…

4. And Why Not Indulge in Some Gastronomy?

You’ve got it all: you’ve taken some time before the holidays to take a weekend break. You’ve got a massage booked, you’ve spent the morning in a Jacuzzi, and you’re enjoying the Riviera sunshine. Life is good.

And yet… aren’t you hungry? Is it really a luxury weekend break without the gastronomy?

We think not. And thankfully, Le Mas Candille has everything you could need in this department. Our hotel boasts a Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant, Le Candille, as well as a poolside, more casual dining experience, La Pergola.

Spend an unforgettable evening enjoying our Chefs’ Discovery Menu, or enjoy a lighter lunch sampling the original Market Menu. Read more about our dining options here.

5. And of Course, the Magnificent Location!

When you’re looking to relax, the key thing is to find the right environment to unwind in. That’s the beauty of taking a weekend break: not only are you able to escape your daily routine, you also get to enjoy new and calmer surroundings.

Autumn on the Côte d’Azur is a stunning time to visit the region. The constant sunshine brings out the changing face of the nature, and without the crowds, you’ll be able to enjoy it all to the fullest.

Le Mas Candille is a great setting to enjoy the season on the French Riviera. Enjoy the views of the changing landscape from our terrace while sipping on a cosmopolitan. Or, take a gentle walk through the winding alleys of Mougins’s medieval old town centre, located only five minutes from the hotel.

Time for a Weekend Break!

The sunshine, the food, the spa, the environment, and the reasonable pricing at this time of year make autumn an ideal time to visit Le Mas Candille.

In anticipation of the holiday season, take some time off for yourself and have a breather. Relax and enjoy the best the French Riviera has to offer.
