And more importantly, Le Mas Candille is looking forward to welcoming you on your trip to the south of France!

We’ve got everything you could ever need to unwind. Fancy a massage at our world-renowned spa? How about a romantic Michelin-starred dinner al fresco on our gorgeous terrace? Or maybe a day on one of the finest golf courses the French Riviera has to offer?
