La Bastide, Saignon, Luberon. Sleeps 8
It wouldn’t feel like a holiday unless the sky was a crisp blue, the sun drew out the scent of herbs and you got the tingling of adventure. La Bastide can bring you all of this and more. With 300 days of sunshine per year, good weather is practically guaranteed in summer. Surrounded by vineyards, pine forests, olive groves and cherry trees and trails to discover nature and culture by foot, bike and horseback your holiday in Provence is just beginning.
This charming self-catering villa provides home comforts for you to enjoy with friends and family while situated in the perfect location for visiting perched villages, ancient castles and Roman ruins.
Fresh, elegant and stylish with a sprinkle of the antique and arty, La Bastide has been beautifully renovated and decorated to welcome guests with all tastes and desires. The fully equipped kitchen allows for many cooks to prepare together as laughter flows throughout the open plan communal areas.
With stone flooring on the downstairs, terracotta tiles on the upstairs and an open fire, despite the superb modern furnishings, La Bastide has kept its Provençal charm.
May produces succulent cherries –straight off the tree, June brings the heady scent of lavender and July begets the rhythmic hum of cicadas. With romantic sun-dappled terraces, vine covered patios and a glistening pool, La Bastide has set the scene for your retreat to serenity.
The far-stretched views over the Luberon beg you to pack your pick-nick basket and head into the hills for natural exploration and local exchanges.
