The
Experience

A glorious apartment for two on the first floor of the owners’ house in the stunning Lubéron hills – you have your own front door upstairs but the feeling is quite private. Inside, seaside simplicity and style are the keywords, all softly done in natural materials, duck-egg and taupe fabrics, driftwood lamps and fish-shaped hooks. The patio is for fresh-air cooking and eating: you are virtually sitting in that fabulous landscape beneath the dappled sun. The kitchen/living room is perfect for two, the high-quality bedding is new, your hosts delightful. Guylaine is an artist and Franck is a business consultant, harvesting his own olives, extracting essential oil from his lavender plants and producing honey from his bee hives. You could just laze the days away by the lavender-lined pool, but there’s so much to see and do in the area: wine-tasting at local vineyards, famous villages such as Gordes, Rousillon, Bonnieux, Loumarin and lovely, lively Aix en Provence with its cathedral, galleries and bookshops, less than 30km away. The pretty seaside town of Cassis and its celebrated limestone calanques are only an hour’s drive.

Reviews

Hidden away with fabulous views, we spent a week lazing around in the beautiful gardens and pottering about perfect Provençal villages. The apartment is clean & comfortable, the outdoor cooking area a private haven to while away the evenings. Both the other apartments were occupied but the gite still felt private and quiet. We loved it & will be back.

This is our second stay with Guylaine and Franck but our first time in this apartment, which is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. We also had exclusive use of an outdoor kitchen area which is great for eating out. The grounds are beautiful with lavender, olive and fruit trees and the view from the bedroom window is wonderful. Immediately accessible from the house is an extensive network of paths through pine forest carpeted with wild Rosemary and Thyme with amazing views towards Marseille and Ventoux. Guylaine and Franck are very charming, kind and generous hosts. Fabulous.

We had a week's stay at this delightful gite. The location is very peaceful in picturesque surroundings, yet within easy reach of some enchanting villages and great restaurants! The owners Guylaine & Franck made us most welcome and have produced a comprehensive guide for the local area. The gite has been beautifully decorated with flair and style and is well equipped. We would not hesitate to recommend this gite confident in the knowledge that those renting it will have a most enjoyable stay.

We received a very warm welcome from Franck & Guylaine which was a wonderful start to our holiday. The property is magnificent, exactly as the photographs show with beautiful gardens and a large swimming pool. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and has everything a couple could need. We also had exclusive use of an 'outdoor kitchen' area complete with fridge, plancher, sink, table & chairs. We ate here in this idyllic setting most evenings. If its peace & tranquillity and a great base from which to explore the Luberon you're looking for, then this is the place. A memorable stay.

Fiona, Sevenoaks

La Bastide des Amandiers is exceptional. Quiet, beautiful, pristine with lovely hosts. The apartment is perfect for two. And then there is the wonderful garden and swimming pool. We had a delightful holiday.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Guylaine et Franck Barthelemy

  • Aix-en-Provence is pedestrian friendly and full of squares, fountains and markets. You can wander, drink a glass of Rosé, enjoy the Provençal air, have a more cultural approach with the Museum Granet, Cézanne workshop, or the Cathedral “Saint-Sauveur”.
  • Avignon, charming fortified city, offers old alleys and the Cité des Papes. Enjoy the amazing view of the Avignon famous bridge. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is a little “Provencal Venice”, where you can find incredible antiques in the Sunday market.
  • Charming villages of Lubéron. I will share good addresses; restaurants, ice-cream maker, vineyards, art galleries etc, and the best walks around. Bikes are available for those who wants to enjoy a lovely ride just before the sunset.. and the aperitif!
  • Alpilles, a heaven on earth surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. You will find Saint Rémy’s village where Van Gogh painted famous canvas, as well as the Cathédrale d’Images aux Baux de Provence!
  • If you have the courage to go bit further, you can visit La Camargue and its white horses(1h), Cassis and les Calanques (1h), Arles, its Arenas and le Pont du Gard (1h) or even the splendid Verdon Gorges (1h30).
  • If you prefer a "Farniente day", you can simply pick up your baguette and croissants at Rognes, our charming little village, sit at one of the café terrace or come back and enjoy the swimming pool!
