Are you Facing the Winter Blues? 

It’s the wintertime, which means shorter days and colder nights. Many of us love the winter season, especially in the run-up to the holidays, but it’s not for everyone.

If you’re struggling with the seasonal changes and wishing for a better and brighter time, we know just what you need.

In our opinion, the best way to maximize every season is to make the best of it. So, make the best of your winter by booking a trip, and then make the best of your spring by taking that pre-planned holiday! It’s a win-win situation.

Le Mas Candille is set to re-open in April 2021, and we’re doing it in style with plenty of offers and flexible booking policies! Take a look at all of our offers for the new year here, and check out our rooms and our beautiful setting here.

In honour of this re-opening and the rapidly approaching spring season, let’s check out five reasons you need to book a springtime getaway to the south of France.


Reason 1: Something to Look Forward To 

If you’re not enjoying the winter and are just waiting for days to lengthen and the flowers to grow back, a spring holiday is for you. Having something planned in the near future to look forward to can do wonders for your mental health in a time when there isn’t much going on.

Knowing that you have a great trip planned in the upcoming months will likely also make it easier to appreciate the existing season. No need to worry about how cold it is outside right now when you know you’ll be enjoying the temperate Mediterranean climate in a matter of weeks!

So why hold off? Book your trip to Mougins now and spend the next few months excitedly looking forward to your stay at Le Mas Candille. We promise you, it’ll be worth it.

Reason 2: It’s Flexible!

When it comes to travelling in 2020, the biggest worry is last-minute cancellations. However, there’s no need to bring this hang-up into 2021.

As the news around the Covid-19 pandemic brightens slightly with the imminent release of a vaccine, so does the news around booking policies!

At Le Mas Candille, we’re very aware of how precarious this last year has made travelling seem. But we’re here to let you know that there’s no need to cancel your reservation or avoid travelling altogether. The spring will be a safer time to travel and all of our booking policies have been adapted to suit your needs!

For example, our gift vouchers are now valid for 18 months from the date of purchase. Perfect for gifting this Christmas!

Additionally, on all reservations until June 2021, there will be no prepayment or deposit required at the reservation stage. As for cancellation policies, between April 1stand May 11ththere is only one day of notice required. This is extended to three days for reservations for the period from May 11thto June 21st. For more details on our cancellation policies, please visit our website.

These flexible cancellations and booking policies make it even easier to plan a holiday in 2021, without any worries! 


Reason 3:  Treat Yourself

Let’s be honest: 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. We’re starting to see the light at the end of the Covid tunnel, with a vaccine in sight and holidays resuming, but it’s been tiring and overwhelming.

In fact, there’s quite possibly never been a better time to focus on self-care.

Thankfully, Le Mas Candille is exceedingly good at this. Book a weekend trip away for yourself and soak up the Riviera sun, award-winning ESPA spa treatments, and delicious gastronomic dining experience.

Give yourself a break and importantly, take some time for yourself. Why not start with an aromatherapy massage at the Spa Candille?

Reason 4: Sun Therapy

If you’re reading this blog from anywhere but the French Riviera, chances are, you need some serious sun.

Its beautiful, sunny disposition is the south of France’s most famous quality, and for good reason! For some sunny inspiration, check out Le Mas Candille’s Instagram page to see the region in all of its sun-dappled glory.

Importantly, sun exposure is really important for our health. Being outside in the sun can contribute positively to our vitamin levels, including vitamin C and D, which keep us healthy.

If you’ve been missing out on some good weather recently, then put your health first and book a trip to Le Mas Candille for some serious, French Riviera, sun therapy.

Reason 5: The Perfect Gift

Last but not least: what better gift could there be for a loved one that a trip to the French Riviera to stay at a luxury 5-star hotel in the spring?

Is there someone in your life who you’d like to treat, but you’re not sure what to gift them this Christmas? Or are you struggling to find a gift for a loved one this year as the lockdown has meant they’ve been doing their shopping over the last few months? Has your friend been struggling with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), or has a partner been suffering from their lack of travelling this year?

All these reasons and many more make a trip the perfect gift. Additionally, Le Mas Candille’s location only 20 minutes from the international airport in Nice makes it very convenient to travel to. So no need to worry about putting anyone out with a long trip!

Lastly, a trip in spring is an ideal gift as it is still several months away and in the warmer months, meaning the risk from Covid will have significantly decreased.

Alternatively, check out our gift vouchers here. For those living in the French Riviera who aren’t looking for a trip, perhaps an ESPA spa treatment will be the perfect break!
