About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Accommodating up to 12 people, the “Bastide La Valentine” is a lovely luxury provençal stoned-built house of 250 m2 (2691 sq feet) situated in Aix-en-Provence in the very sought-after district of Puyricard. It is at 12 minutes by car (9 Km) from the historical center of Aix-en-Provence. The elegant Bastide combines the sophistication of the nineteenth century and the contemporary style in order to offer our guests a moment of real relaxation in the 1.4-hectare park (3,5 acres)… From our lavender field, you can admire the mountain of Sainte Victoire, so dear to the painter Paul Cézanne.

Arriving at the Valentine, you will be warmly welcomed by the owners, who will meet all your needs.

Facing the south, with large windows opening to the east and west, the rooms in La Bastide invite in the magical Provencal sun, giving a feeling of joy and well-being to each moment of the day. All the rooms are equipped with air conditioning.

A modern and fully equipped kitchen ready to welcome even the best chefs, will help you to create wonderful meals with local products ... yes indeed, you are in Provence! It’s spacious enough to share special moments in the kitchen with your family or friends.

On the ground floor, there are also a play room (American billiards, table football), a large living room, a dining room (expandable table 12 persons) and 2 bedrooms with bath, shower and private WC.

Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower and separate toilets.

To maximize privacy, the 6 bedrooms are spread out on different floors and areas of the house.

Outside, a beautiful, shady terrace looks out into a spacious garden where you can play ping-pong and children are free to run about or do somersaults on the grass without bothering anyone relaxing on the lounge chairs by the large swimming pool (which is heated in mid-season).
A large, comfortable outdoor table and a barbeque grill beckon you to enjoy the fresh Provencal air any time of the year. You will also find high-end garden furniture such as luxury umbrellas, outdoor shower….

La Bastide is more than just a vacation rental, it’s a way of life, a simple luxury to lose yourself in the serenity of it. It is perfect for guests enjoying the quiet of the countryside. Close to the center of Aix-en-Provence, we provide bicycles to get to the bakery and vineyards which are not far from our property - We hope to see you soon in this haven of peace and comfort.

Aix-en-Provence is a city of art and culture (international art festival, piano festival, numerous museums) which invites you to charming walks...

There are many attractions to see and visit in the area. You can rent a boat in Marseille with a skipper and visit the 'Calanques', the stunning cliffs that line the Mediterranean coast. You can visit the beautiful Sainte-Victoire mountain with a guide or do a guided tour of Aix-en-Provence. There are many local vineyards and charming Provencal villages all around.

We are very happy to welcome and learn from people of diverse nationalities. Thus far, we have hosted people from USA, Germany, Bermuda, France, UK and more. We are eager to continue to meet so many different guests.

We are always available at short notice for any enquiries you may have during your stay and it will be our pleasure to welcome you at the Bastide!
