La Rivolte, French Riviera 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.
Hello B&B Travelers -
I've been thinking about putting a blog up on ibbp.com for awhile. I started ibbp back in 1995 because I love staying at bed and breakfasts and traveling. Hotels are great, but I have found that B&Bs offer visitors a unique view of the location that they are exploring. When traveling to England, I found great pubs and historical sites that were not posted in the travel books. When traveling locally in the US, I have found the great local eateries and activities that may not be posted anywhere else. How about you? I'd love to hear your bed and breakfast experiences and any travel tips for locations that you have visited. Did you stumble upon a castle that many people would not know about? Did you visit a city that we might overlook? Let us know. I'll also post places I've visited and interesting sites that we all may overlook. Happy travels.
