This idyllic 18th century Provencal private Bastide is set among the famed perfumeries of Grasse, but is still just a few kilometres from the beaches and high life of Cannes, Antibes and the Cote D’Azur.

Make it your own private residence for a holiday, wedding or event. The bastide is surrounded by the olive groves, fruit trees, fountains and lavender scents of the Riviera of Cole Porter and Scott Fitzgerald.

The bastide has been newly converted into one of the finest houses in the region and retains its old Provence feel with meter thick walls which keep the summer cool and winter warm. There are huge open stone fireplaces in all main rooms and bedrooms. The bastide has all the facilities and luxuries of a small private hotel, which is not surprising considering that it is a hotel for several months of the year.

Please note that mid-week short breaks are available at reduced prices. See our T&Cs tab for details.

Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

  • Impeccable

    Posted by Tiku B on 28/04/2017

    This past weekend was the best day of my life. We got married at Bastide Bijou, the most charming boutique villa ever and I couldn't be happier. The bastide was very well kept to a high standard and our host, Soraya, was the best host anyone could wish for. She made us feel very welcome. We had the time of our lives. The whole team was amazing; the house keeper served the best breakfasts in the world. The pool area provided the most relaxing environment to read a book or just chill out. If we could turn back the hands of time, we surely will choose Bastide Bijou in a heartbeat!. We certainly will be back and I highly recommend it.

  • Amazing

    Posted by JM on 20/12/2016

    Amazing villa! Excellent location and full of character.

  • Wow! What a place!

    Posted by Mike and Hetta on 28/09/2016

    After struggling to find a romantic setting to propose to my girlfriend on holiday I was recommended Bastide Bijou as a beautiful place to visit and stay. I worked with the owners and we worked together to arrange the most incredible and special setting to ask the very important question to my now fiancee. It has to be one of the most tranquil and beautiful places I have been to in the South of France and after walking around the house we were amazed at the class and beauty of the interior.
    Everything about the property and surrounding garden has been tailored and designed perfectly to the guests needs. The staff were extremely welcoming and were very cooperative in working with me to create what was an incredible and memorable moment.
    We went back to visit the property again with family and were again welcomed with open arms. I can't thank Soraya and her staff enough for all that they did for us and will be certainly dreaming of one day going back to stay or even get married there if we are lucky.

  • Our Magical Wedding Venue

    Created on 03/08/2016

    From the moment we arrived to the emotional farewell myself and my husband had a truly magical weekend.
    We employed Jenna the wedding planner at the Bastide who was invaluable to us from the 6 months leading up to our wedding to the actual day itself, I could not recommend her highly enough. Soraya who owns the Bastide was in the background all weekend and was friendly, helpful and entertaining in equal measure. The Bastide for us and our 70 guests was the perfect wedding venue, and despite being relatively unlucky with the weather the beautiful surroundings and exquisite interior of the Bastide helped create the best location. The Bastide is an old building full of character and rustic appeal and charm. If you want an intimate and individual wedding with beautiful surroundings and friendly staff to help, I could not recommend it highly enough.
    We look forward to returning one day for an anniversary party!! x
