La Rivolte, French Riviera Mansion

Historic Mansion

La Rivolte is an English-owned and run 19th century mansion situated at the foothills of the Alps, in Grasse, famous for its perfume industry and overlooking the Bay of Cannes with large Mediterranean gardens and a jade-green heated swimming pool.

The B&B has eight bedrooms which all have sea views, two salons and large kitchen/dining room. There is a beautiful large terrace with spectacular views over the old town of Grasse and towards the sea. The location makes this accommodation an ideal base from which to explore the Cote d'Azur. There are several excellent golf courses within a half-hour drive.

As an added feature,
La Rivolte runs a poetry workshop in June of each year with the well-known poet, Roger McGough.
