Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

Sip a glass of Coteaux d’Aix wine as you relax beneath the plane trees on your characterful terrace overlooking the verdant garden, before wandering down the rustic steps towards the gorgeous swimming pool, lavender and olive trees.

This handsome bastide allows you to experience the Provence of yesteryear whilst surrounded by style and comfort. Admire the exquisite tiles as you step through the hallway before retiring to one of the sumptuous chairs by the fireplace and piano. The modern kitchen is brilliantly equipped and features glass doors opening out to the wood-beamed dining room, flooded with light from the elegant windows overlooking the trees.

La Bastide Provençale sleeps up to twelve guests across its six bedrooms. There is something for everyone from the ground floor double to the master bedroom upstairs with its bath and shower, alongside two twins and two further bedrooms with queen-size doubles. With varying sizes, you can expect discreet touches of character alongside artwork, pretty furnishings and charming shuttered windows.

The house is set in four hectares of grounds which, alongside the 15m long swimming pool, also features a tennis court and idyllic terrace for al-fresco meals. Embrace the summer aromas of rosemary and lavender, listen out for the peaceful flow of water in the bassin and hear the birds sing in this beautiful Provençal garden.    

Passing vineyards as you drive, a traditional local village is just over 2km away with restaurants, shops, old houses, fountains and a Friday morning market. Other picturesque villages nearby include Rognes and Saint-Cannat whilst a visit to historic Salon-de-Provence is a must with its old quarter and pretty shops – look out for olive oil and ‘savon de Marseille’ produced in the town.

The historic beauty of Aix-en-Provence is only 24km away, a wonderful day out for everyone whether you wish to visit the town’s museums and Cézanne’s art studio or simply drink coffee on a café terrace on Cours Mirabeau.

Meanwhile, families have a wealth of activities within easy reach (from the nearby zoo and castle to pony rides and attraction parks) whilst grown-ups will appreciate the landscapes of the Luberon with two of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Lourmarin and Ansouis, both less than half an hour by car.

Loading map

In the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France, La Bastide Provençale is located in a picturesque rural setting just outside a traditional village south of the Luberon. The charm of Aix-en-Provence is only 24km away.

The village is just over 2km away via a typical country lane passing countryside and vineyards (the wine appellation here is Coteaux d’Aix). It is home to a handful of restaurants, a good sized supermarket and other useful shops alongside a market on a Friday morning. Walk around the village admiring colourful old houses, flowers and fountains and look out for events and festivities, especially in the summer months. Across this region there are some lovely walking, cycling, hiking and mountain biking opportunities as well as the very charming Les Poneys De Provence.

Other historic villages close by include Rognes (8.5km) and Saint-Cannat (7km) whilst Salon-de-Provence (19km) is a joyful town to explore, known for its pretty pavement cafes, medieval lanes, fountains and olive oil produced from the many surrounding groves.

To the north you can experience the beauty of southern Luberon from Lourmarin (22km) to Ansouis (25km), both classified as France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Discover seasonal canoeing/kayaking along the Durance River, summer swimming at Étang de la Bonde and gorgeous summer lunches by the bassin in the picture-perfect village of Cucuron (24km).

Embrace the charm of Aix-en-Provence (24km) with its beautiful lanes, baroque architecture, characterful fountains and Cours Mirabeau lined with pavement café terraces beneath the plane trees. The daily food market on Place Richelme is a must for gastronomes, as are the patisseries selling Calissons d’Aix, whilst the larger weekly market takes place three mornings a week.  

You could even spend the day by the Mediterranean coast soaking up the character of Cassis (74km) or enjoying the fantastic beaches around La Ciotat (75km) and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer (83km), all just over an hour away by car.

Keen walkers note that the Calanques National Park is a paradise for coastal hikes whilst there are plenty of other walking opportunities close to Aubagne (61km) and in the vicinity of Cézanne’s beloved Montagne Sainte-Victoire (45km).

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!

This is a fantastic location for families who wish to explore this beautiful part of Provence whilst keeping children entertained. There is table tennis and a tennis court at La Bastide Provençale whilst activities such as horse-riding, mountain biking and hiking can be found in the local area. The very charming Les Poneys De Provence is around 5km by car.

Just over a 10-minute drive away is the popular Zoo Barben, a wild animal park with 9km of footpaths through oak trees where you can admire up to 700 animals (130 species) alongside picnic areas and a children’s playground. Close to the zoo is Le Rocher Mistral, a castle that is open to the public with vast grounds and historical re-enactments during the day and evening.

In the other direction is Le Village Des Automates (10.5km), an old fashioned attraction park with a variety of rides and play areas beneath the pine trees. To the north you will find Parc Grimmland (12km) with fairy-tale inspired playgrounds and a large maze.

Watersport enthusiasts can discover seasonal canoeing and kayaking along the Durance River near Lauris and there is summer swimming at Étang de la Bonde in the Luberon just south of Cabrières-d'Aigues, around half an hour away.

Meanwhile, visit the beautiful University town of Aix-en-Provence for a wonderful family day out. Check out the museums and parks, walk up to Cézanne’s art studio, ride on the Carrousel Paul Cézanne near the iconic Fontaine de la Rotonde and try the delicious sweet delicacy, Calisson d’Aix.
