A true Provençal rural retreat. Rooms full of rustic charm, shady terrace for whiling away the hours, friendly staff. Lots of activities too

Vineyards and glorious views over the Var surround you at this peaceful 17th-century bastide.  Inside, all is soothing and airy - Linn and her friendly staff want you to settle in and enjoy the slow pace here. Bedrooms (some upstairs, some down) each bear a painter’s name and have ancient beams, antique pieces, tiled floors, flowers, clouds of soft pillows and views over the gardens; shower rooms have organic cotton towels and sprigs of lavender; gîte guests have an apartment and studio in the grounds. The huge living and dining area invites you to linger: fireplace, arched windows, red leather sofas and interesting paintings; eat here at large wooden tables or out on the pretty front terrace. Food is locally sourced and organic, vegetables are mostly from the garden. Plenty to do: explore the bougainvillea-bright grounds, swim, play petanque or tennis, book a massage or yoga workshop, get stuck into a game of chess - there’s a giant set under the shade of a centuries-old oak tree. You can hire bikes, tours can be arranged and the coast is 30-minutes away. Deeply rural, heaps of charm.
