Walk to Village Laptop Friendly Workspace Parking Space

A typical stone bastide on the edge of a picturesque Provençal village, step inside and be amazed by Bastide Henri’s bold interiors and its vast collection of artwork across the house and its beautiful terraced gardens.

This vibrant villa is a paradise for art lovers thanks to its eclectic décor and works of art in every room. Sleeping up to 12 guests, bedrooms are scattered across the main house and its separate annexe, each one individually designed and featuring a private bath or shower room. The main living room is just as impressive whilst the annexe’s lounge has a picture-book window making the most of the valley views. Both the house and annexe feature excellent kitchen and dining areas whilst there is plenty of space to dine al-fresco across the vast gardens and terraces.

The artistic ambience continues outside as you stroll through the hectare of grounds with romantic cypress trees, summer colours of Provence, sculptures, terracotta pots and olive trees. The rather elegant salt-water swimming pool is heated and there is an arched pool house, a gorgeous spot to unwind by the poolside terrace. Find another corner of the garden where you can gaze out to the wonderful views towards Les Baux valley.

In a residential area on the edge of a village in Le Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles, it’s just a short stroll to café terraces, little shops, inviting restaurants and the main square which hosts a charming Thursday morning market. Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, is only 5km away by car whilst other gems of this region include Eygalières and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Beyond Les Alpilles, discover the idyllic perched villages of the Luberon such as Ménerbes and Gordes, drive through the landscapes of the Camargue, follow Van Gogh’s footsteps in Arles and spend the day in Avignon with its remarkable UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Bastide Henri is on the edge of a Provençal village in the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles, located in the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France, 32km south of Avignon.

Just wander up to the main road and within 700m you are in the heart of a picturesque village with a variety of inviting café and restaurant terraces, little shops, a grocery store and a Thursday morning market. It’s a charming place to spend time with its pretty fountain and main square and it is especially well known for its olive oil produced from the many groves surrounding the village.

In the other direction, around 1.3km by car, is a renowned French bistro loved by Rick Stein (book ahead) whilst the hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence is only 5km away, classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. The views from Les Baux’ impressive château are remarkable, taking in the glorious landscapes of Les Alpilles, a wonderful part of Provence.

As well as cycling and long walks through the region’s orchards and forests, find wine-tasting and olive-oil sampling at local vineyards and farms as well as opportunities for rock-climbing and pony trekking. The neighbouring Luberon area is also waiting to be explored with its perched villages (Ménerbes, Lourmarin and Gordes for example) and beautiful scenery around an hour away by car.

The vibrant and artistic town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (12km) is a great trip out, especially on a Wednesday morning with its fantastic market selling a wealth of seasonal produce and artisan crafts. Meanwhile, art-lovers will also adore Arles (18km), home to the Place du Forum where Van Gogh painted ‘Café Terrace at Night’.

Heading north, admire the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon (32km) or spend a day in Nîmes (45km) with its magnificently preserved Roman sites. The romantic University town of Aix-en-Provence (65km) is just an hour away or venture towards the waterwheels and antique stores of charming L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (42km) with its famous Sunday morning brocante.

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!
