The Experience

The bastide is a handsome sight with pretty white shutters and colourful pot plants at the door. You get the whole of the ground floor with terrace, garden and pool, the owners’ live upstairs but your entrance and outlook are facing the other way. It’s a pleasure to lounge by the pool with a glass of the estate’s wine, and to barbecue on a shady terrace overlooking the woods and fields of the Var. But the real gem is the living room. Where once there were animal stalls and mangers, now there are exquisite pieces: Louis XVI gilt clocks, marble dressers, oil portraits, an Italian cabinet, a dining table handmade to Lindsay’s design. Modern white sofas with red and orange cushions add a bright spark, as does the fireplace with piles of logs ready to light. White linen flows over French windows opening out to a table on the terrace. The kitchen is in keeping with the rustic Provençal style of the rest of the house, as are simple beamed bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor. You’re two miles from the market town of Lorgues, 40 minutes from the Côte d’Azur, and Lindsay is only too happy to take you on a boat trip in the Gulf of St Tropez.

Reviews

We stayed here twice, in 2021 and 2022, and will definitely come back. We loved the house with the beautiful furniture, the pool, the views and the quietness of the place although Lorgues, with nice terraces and shops is just a few minutes away. Lindsay and Michele even have bikes to borrow so you can take the bike, too! Lindsay and Michele are very nice hosts. You don’t even notice they’re there and when you need any kind of help or have any questions they’re always available. It really is an amazing place.

What a pleasure to stay at Lindsay's Bastide. Nestled in among vineyards, summer evenings are a delight spent on the terrace. We enjoyed cooking in the fully equipped kitchen and swimming in the pool each mornings. There is much to do in the area, and Lorgues is a lovely little town. We particularly enjoyed a very special day spent on the bay of St Tropez with Lindsay as our formidable captain on his charming wood deck power boat. Lindsay and Michèle are excellent hosts, accommodating and respectful. I highly recommend staying here.

This is our second stay in this beautiful house. We have never gone back to a holiday cottage before, so that just shows how much we enjoy staying there. We had a lovely warm welcome again from Lindsay and Michele, who are always there if you need them, but they don't intrude. The house is furnished in a very comfortable relaxed style with some lovely pieces of old French furniture. The kitchen has everything you need, but still has character as has the whole of the house. A lovely shaded terrace and large swimming pool complete the picture. There are two newly fitted shower rooms as well.

Lindsay and Michele gave us a very warm welcome and we (six) had a very happy week's holiday in comfort, enjoying the peace of the house and swimming pool, and with days spent visiting Lorgues, Lac Sainte-Croix, nearby vineyards, and a special trip exploring the Gulf of Saint-Tropez aboard Lindsay's classic 36ft motorboat.

I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. It has a lovely homely feel, spacious, with comfortable beds and seating and equipped with everything you need. It is simply decorated which perfectly suits the antique furnishings. Outside there is a large shady terrace with large table and chairs and a superb swimming pool for our sole use. There are chairs and longers around the pool and plenty of shade if you don't wish to sit in the sun. We received a lovely warm welcome from the charming Lindsay and Michele. Although they live above, we felt completey private during our stay.

My family and I spent a week here and wished we could have stayed longer! In a very lovely and peaceful setting, the beautiful house is only a couple of minutes from the town of Lorgues and in a great location for visiting Provençal villages and the coast. The apartment itself was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. We had sole use of the pool and terrace area and although the owner lives above, it felt very private. Lindsay and Michele were quite simply perfect hosts. They are both utterly charming, helpful and kind. We would love to return one day and get to know them better. Perfect!

I have just returned from a fabulous week at Domaine St Marc des Omedes, we were a group of 6 adults and all had a wonderful time. Lindsay is a great host with a beautiful home in an idyllic setting. The house is well equipped with everything you could need. I cannot recommend it enough and will be sure to return in the near future. 10 out of 10!

Myself and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it wholeheartedly. The house is spacious, well-equipped and full of charm. The outside space and pool are great, with stunning views over the vines and nearby hills. Lindsay was a wonderful host and provided great advice on the nearby area during our stay. We hope to return.

Anthony

I stayed for several months and had to tear myself away - it is a beautiful house situated in a lovely part of the Var. Lindsay is the host you hope all hosts will be - special. Forget the sightseeing - sit by the pool - relax and enjoy the best break you will ever have.
