It's 9am on a beautiful morning, here in Mougins where a sumptuous buffet awaits me. Sitting on the terrace of this five stars hotel, I couldn't but share with you this one of a kind experience, that's really worth talking about...Here you will indulge in fine culinary wonders that will oblige you to eat: Two kilos already gained this week from all this fine food enjoyed.
At Le Mas Candille, breakfast is served until 10am, so waking up early is a must. Nestled within 10 acres of terraced Provencal Parkland and surrounded by mature cypress trees and old olive groves, the hotel offers mesmerizing views across the Mougins valley to the Pre-Alps. The place and ambiance is where the story starts. In a garden, away from any possible noise pollution, under pine trees and old olive ones, set up on the stone tiles are round tables surrounded by pink designer chairs. Silver cutlery, light music plays softly in the background, while a buffet waits to be shared.

The first morning I ordered the pain perdu, a premiere for me at breakfast: Light, exactly how it should be for breakfast. The next day was time for omelette. What is called "Une Omelette Baveuse" was served: the picture says it all, it was one of the best I've ever had: rolled scrambled eggs with shredded ham in the middle and Emmental cheese. Adequately salted and seasoned, when you start you cannot stop. Every bite is as tasty as the next. Every ingredient is fresh and the choices are overwhelming: I made sure to wake up early every morning, to experience their breakfast again and again... Yummy!
The only minus:
The croissants are not up to this hotel's and breakfast standard. I consider them to be unacceptable and need to be changed.
What I loved the most:
- The super professional service and welcoming staff
- The omelett
- The chocolate viennoiseries
- The fruit salad
I loved this part of the day at Le Mas Candille Hotel. Welcomed by a unique staff, we were given the same table every day and served the same coffee the way we each like it... We felt at home, surrounded by family in a five stars setup. A majestic breakfast I dream of experiencing in Lebanon.
