In spring, water gushes through the 400-acre estate: the 12th-century Knights Templar created myriad irrigation channels, the life-source of this stunning place. (Now it is proud possessor of the EU Ecolabel.) The bastide keeps it fortress-like proportions and bags of character and charm. Martina and Claude love it all, have planted 3,750 trees, and have a sense of fun that makes a stay a treat. The main house is arranged around a central patio, with stairs leading to the bedrooms above. Simple Provençal furnishings are lit by huge windows, floors are terracotta, there are cosy ’boutis’ quilts and sumptuous towels and linen, and bathrooms cleverly worked around original features. Breakfasts are scrumptious; dinners put the accent on Provençal produce and their own wine. In the cellar: music and a mini cinema. Also table football and a heated pool with a view, a sauna, a Turkish bath and a well-stocked library. Beyond are the Gorges du Verdon, Cotignac, St-Maximin-la-Ste-Baume. An isolated paradise for all ages, overseen by a charming family, donkeys, Shetland ponies, swans, ducks, geese… and one dear old dog.

We had a lovely stay with Martina and Claude and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Our room was spacious, bright and comfy. Plenty of breakfast, delicious home made jams and local honey. We were lucky to enjoy the traditional Easter dinner with some of the other guests. The food was really nice and dietary requests catered for. Martina and Claude were very helpful suggesting interesting places and routes to explore. We also went horse riding during our stay, again organised by Martina. We had a great stay and highly recommend a visit.


In spite of poor weather we had the most wonderfully memorable visit to Une Campagne en Provence. Martina and Claude gave us the warmest of welcomes and made us feel like house guests rather than paying guests. Our room was lovely in sunny Provencal colours with gorgeous views over the estate and a very comfortable bed. We were fortunate enough to be staying on one of the two nights a week that Martina provides supper for her guests; this was simply delicious and shared with other guests who it was a pleasure to meet. We will definitely go back for another stay hopefully when the sun is shinig
