A few days in indulging on the Côte d’Azur

Le Mas Candille is an idyllic hillside retreat in Provence which makes for a quiet spring getaway different to the busy summer months along the South of France. Enjoy breath-taking views of the Mougins valley and relax at The Shiseido luxury spa which uses a unique method to stimulate mind and body energy. The hotel is located on the French Riviera, only 7 kilometers from Cannes, so you won’t be short of places to eat, shop and while away the afternoon strolling along the beach.


Culture in Barcelona

If you’d like to enjoy a mother-daughter city break, head to Barcelona where you can dine on some delicious tapas, visit the sights and sip on cocktails overlooking this diverse and exciting city. Stay at the W Hotel close to the beach where you can pamper yourselves at the Bliss Spa, take a dip in the dramatic outdoor pool,  and end the day feasting on traditional and modern Catalan cuisine at the superb Bravo restaurant.
