Overview

Pool Villa/House
Great Value
Ideal for Kids

Situated outside the village of Tourves, this splendid four-bedroom bastide accommodates up to eight guests in traditional Provencal style. A warm, spacious living area with tasteful furnishings greets guests as they enter the house, while large windows and French doors invite floods of natural light.

Adjacent to the living area is a well-appointed kitchen, a place where culinary inspiration from the surrounding Provencal countryside and modern appliances come together. Whether you’re throwing together a Mediterranean salad or preparing a feast for family and friends, delicious meals will be enjoyed at the dining table or, better yet, al fresco. 

On the ground floor you’ll find the first of four bedrooms. With a double bed and en suite, this space is easily accessible. Heading upstairs, there are three more bedrooms, one with a double bed, another with a queen-sized bed and en suite, and the last containing two single beds. This floor hosts a further shower and separate WC. 

But Bastide Du Bois truly comes into its own when you step outside onto the expansive terrace and take in the abode’s sprawling manicured garden. The inviting swimming pool, framed by hanging grape vines, palms, ferns and olive trees, allows guests to cool off on warm afternoons. The garden itself, a pleasant grove of strolling paths and calming fauna, gives the terrace a sense of peace and privacy. 

Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway, family retreat or to escape with a group of friends, Bastide Du Bois is located in an ideal spot in the heart of Provence. With proximity to charming medieval villages and renowned vineyards, visitors can enjoy a blend of rich history and natural beauty.

Nestled in a residential area just outside the quaint village of Tourves in the heart of Provence, Bastide Du Bois is a quintessential slice of the French countryside. Just a three-minute drive from the village’s cobblestone streets, the bastide has ready access to a supermarket, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, shops, and even a local museum. 

The nearby city of Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume sits at the foot of the Sainte-Baume mountains and is well worth a visit, particularly for its Sainte Marie Madeleine Basilica, the largest gothic edifice in Provence. Numerous hiking trails exploring the area’s renowned caves can also be found here, including the Grotte de la Sainte Baume where Mary Magdalene is said to have spent her last years. The region is also dotted with myriad vineyards and wineries, presenting the perfect opportunity for wine enthusiasts to savour the local terroir. 

Stretching a little further afield, the regional centres of Aubagne and Aix-en-Provence are certainly worth the day trip to explore. As the painter Paul Cézanne said of his hometown, Aix-en-Provence, to be born there is hopeless, for “nothing else compares.” 

The closest sandy beach is called Le Pradon Carqueiranne, just east of Toulon.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Bastide Du Bois’ inviting swimming pool, expansive terrace and sprawling garden offer children a wonderful world to explore and play in.

For a family-friendly day of fun, the Magic World amusement park (1-hour drive) is a great option. The theme park is located very close to a number of bright, sandy beaches. So pack your beach gear for a day spent on the shores of the Mediterranean before making a move to Magic World for a fun-filled evening.

The Sainte-Baume Natural Regional Park (20-minute drive), and indeed the extensive cave trails surrounding Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, offer amazing access to Provence’s natural wonder. With breathtaking views from tiny chapels on cliff edges, rolling vineyards like green corduroy and even ancient Roman remains, this area is great for hiking or mountain biking.
