The Experience

A ground-floor space of this well-designed house surrounded by smooth lawns, masses of lavender and dreamy views to the Luberon hills. You have your own private entrance: find tiled floors, natural colours, plenty of space and a bit of a wild floral theme going on in wall hangings and headboards above decent beds. The kitchen has all the kit you need. Owners are on site too: Guylaine is an artist from Paris and Franck is a business consultant, harvesting his own olives, extracting essential oil from his lavender plants and producing honey from his bee hives. You might see a few guests from the two other apartments, but as this is a place for adults, it’s blissfully calm. You could just laze the days away by the lavender-lined pool, but there’s so much to see and do in the area: glorious walking and biking, wine-tasting at local vineyards, famous villages such as Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lourmarin and lovely, lively Aix-en-Provence with its cathedral, galleries and bookshops, less than 30km away. The pretty seaside town of Cassis and the celebrated limestone calanques are only an hour’s drive.

Superb extended stay at Le Cabanon during Feb/Mar 2024. Le Cabanon and La Bastide & gardens are beautifully presented and we were made so welcome. The surrounding area is spectacular - so many places to visit locally and within a few hours drive. Even the climate was ideal (for these Northern Europeans)! We loved Le Cabanon and it was difficult to leave - we are already making plans to return in 2025.

Andrew, Edinburgh

We loved our stay at La Bastide des Amandiers where we spent a blissful week on our 8-week road trip through France, Italy and Switzerland. What a beautiful spot for home base in southern Luberon. From here we day-tripped to Arles, Aix, Saint-Remy, Cassis…heaven! Le Cabanon was peacefully quiet, private, comfortable and clean. Guylaine and Franck (& Romeo chat 🥰) were wonderful hosts, kind and thoughtful. There if we needed while also offering us the privacy we enjoy. The suite itself was cozy and inviting, a welcome place to come home to after our day of travels. Thanks for everything!

Marilee & Douglas, Qualicum Beach, BC Canada

We had an amazing time and can highly recommend Le Cabanon at La Bastide des Amandiers. It a wonderful estate with a beautiful large garden that you can enjoy in a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. La Cabanon is beautifully furnished and has an exceptionally stocked kitchen. The terrace with the lounge chairs and view into the garden is just a dream, you can really recharge your batteries here. The hosts Guylaine and Franck are so welcoming and helpful, we had some issues with our travel and arrived late during the night and they stayed awake and even brought us breakfast the next day.

Nadine, München

Thank you Guylaine and Franck for welcoming us to La Bastide des Amandiers and for being such lovely hosts. We fell in love with your beautiful home and garden, in such beautiful surroundings. It was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Le Cabanon was so peaceful and comfortable, we truly felt we had escaped. We enjoyed the company of your adorable cats who made sure to visit us every day. We are looking forward to returning in June and seeing the lavender.

Debbie & George, Wells

We wrote after our seventh visit, and now do so again after our twelfth! Are we unimaginative or unadventurous? No, definitely not! This remains our perfect holiday location to relax and recharge the batteries. Guylaine and Franck are as charming, welcoming and helpful as ever. There are always new places to discover and explore whether by car, bicycle or on foot. And then, back at La Bastide, there is the wonderful calm, the view and of course the pool. Glorious.

Peter and Elizabeth, London

3rd year in a row so we obviously love this place. As before, such a relaxing setting and a fantastic accomodation with great hosts. The pool, barbeque and comfortable outside seating make this a fantastic place to wind down and relax and leave the working world behind. Oh, and be sure to buy cat nibbles. Romeo and Lily will be your friends for the whole week.

David, Weavering

Beautiful place, perfect for relaxing, our hosts were discreet but there when you needed any information. We felt very at home and hope to return next year

Sandra, Saarbrücken

Perfect in every way. We have just come to the end of our seventh visit and have booked our eighth. The setting is glorious - peaceful grounds with olive trees and lavender looking out over the valley, with a refreshing pool of a decent size. A discovery this year was having a massage in the shade of one of the trees from a local expert masseuse and reflexologist - just wonderful! Franck and Guylaine are truly welcoming and helpful while leaving you to enjoy your stay. Sheer bliss every time.

Elizabeth and Peter, London

A little piece of heaven on earth! If you are looking for the ultimate getaway in Provence this is it. Guylaine & Franck greeted us upon arriving & each day until the morning we left with such warmth & kindness. Their knowledge & expertise as locals led us to many special spots, destinations & experiences that will last a lifetime. The gites were beautiful & well equipped for anyone who loves to cook with local ingredients from the weekly markets in the area. Thank you Guylaine & Franck for a magical 2 weeks. We can’t wait to return.

Kathy & Jason, New York

Our 2nd time staying in the Cabanon and probably not our last. Fantastic. So relaxing with great views, peace and quiet and a fantastic comfortable and well equipped villa. Everything you need is provided and nothing beats an evening with a glass of Rose as the sun goes down. It was constantly 35 degrees or more so the shade on your own patio and from the tree outside is a blessing, as is the lovely pool. Only negative - having to leave. Many thanks to fantastic hosts Guylaine and Franck (and Romeo, Lily, Myrtille and Mesai)

David, Kent

We have just spent the most fabulous three weeks in “la Cabanon du Murier”. The place is immaculate, beds are very comfortable, very good shower & the lounge & kitchen are well equipped and cool in the day when it is hot outside. The outdoor area is very private with a choice of loungers under the “kiwi fruit” covered pergola or under the shade of a tree. It was great to be able to cool off in the pool then relax on the sunloungers in this peaceful setting. Guylaine & Franck are great hosts & following their suggestions we experienced the best meals ever. We highly recommended a holiday here.

Christine, Auckland, New Zealand

Beautifully appointed apartments with every comfort catered for. Lovely peaceful location and the owners (and their pets!) are charming. Loved it so much, we are thinking of going back again this summer.

Isabel, Edinburgh

This absolute gem is simply heaven on earth. This was our second visit here...we never revisit anywhere..but made the exception for this gorgeous gite. It has everything you could possibly need and is super stylish and comfortable both inside and out...plenty of places to relax in the sun and shade and a fabulous pool too. Franck and Guylaine are the perfect hosts and are very knowledgeable about the locale giving great advice of the best and most beautiful places to visit. We will be returning without a doubt and cannot recommend this holiday retreat highly enough.

Tracy, Nottingham

Lovely well presented cottage in beautiful gardens. Ideally situated to easily get to all the must see places in Provence. Very remote and peaceful if a bit difficult to find and the access road a bit bumpy. Hosts helpful and friendly.

Ron, Portland, Dorset

Another wonderful two week stay, thank you very much Franck and Guylaine. This is our third visit to Rognes and we loved every minute of it, a real home from home. The gite and its setting is idyllic. The two bedroom gite is equipped with everything you need. The gardens at the house are also perfect for relaxing in with an aperitif before dinner! The swimming pool is great for cooling off in late afternoon . The location of the gite is great, well placed near to many hillside towns and villages. A real must stay gite. Marianne Shaw and Tim Le Cornu

tim, St Clement

An absolutely lovely place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. We have been many times and visit every year. The owners are very helpful and friendly and the gite is beautiful. The surrounding area is fantastic with some spectacular places to visit.

Mandy, Oxford

Beautiful stylish accommodation. Very pleasant and helpful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Loft and would like to return.

Wendy, Aberdeen

Guilayne and Frank are the perfect hosts!!! They are discrete and very helpful and recommend you many places. We rented the Annexe but due to availability, we we moved to The Cabbanon. The gite is beautiful, spacious and calm. The terrace is perfect to relax. Insist you can find everything you need. The garden and the pool are gorgeous even if we couldn't use the pool. La Bastide des Amandiers is close to many must places to visit in the surrounding urea. We would definitely come back again and recommend it to family and friends.

Sonsoles, Madrid

We stayed for our first week in the Annexe but due to availability we moved to the Loft for our second week. This gite is also beautifully and tastefully furnished and very well equipped with a nice high ceiling which gives the lounge/kitchen a very light and open feel. The view from the lounge window is lovely. The gite is very well located in a beautiful area with an easy drive to the Luberon and Aix en Provence, which is a must see. The walk up to the top of the hills behind the house is well worth the effort. Great gite, great location and very charming hosts - we shall be back.

Guylaine & Franck Barthelemy

Guylaine (an artist from Paris) and Franck (a business consultant) live in the main house on site during low season and move to the mountains in the summer when it's rented out. They bought the place in 2003 and opened to guests in 2009. They're always there to greet and welcome you with a cup of tea or a glass of the local rosé. They harvest their olives for their own olive oil and extract essential oil from their lavender fields.
