Description

Immerse yourself in nature with a break at this luxury villa in Provence. La Bastide de Flechon is a magical property, set among olive groves, with breathtaking views out over the Alpilles mountains. There’s nothing like throwing your bedroom curtains open in the mornings to that view and opening the windows to let the warm air filter in.

The interior is decorated in neutral, natural shades that chime perfectly with the property’s surrounds. Rough brickwork, exposed beams and limestone slabs set a modern rustic tone in the shared living spaces, with vegetable pigments on the walls bringing an atmosphere that makes you instantly relax.

In the living room, plush upholstered sofas and a stone fireplace give everyone somewhere to gather together. Lounge over the papers, have a game of cards or curl up with a good book for a little me-time.

Nearby, the dining space has a large table for you to gather round and enjoy local produce, put together in the well-equipped kitchen, or simply bring home a restaurant takeaway from one of the many nearby Provencal eateries.

While the interiors of the property are stunning, it would be a waste not to enjoy as many meals as you can outside in the alfresco dining areas. There are several terraces where you can relax with a morning coffee or take sundowners as the afternoon starts to cool. We think the best place to eat is under the rose-covered gazebo at the long dining table to seat 12. Somehow, all food tastes better outdoors – and there’s nothing like dipping bread into local olive oil within touching distance of the olive groves themselves.

The gardens are a wonderful place to explore, play and enjoy meals. Have a game of petanque, sprawl on the manicured lawn with a book, or wander among the olive trees and garden beds and lose yourself for a while. On a hot day there’s nowhere better to spend a few hours than by the heated infinity-edged swimming pool, where you can alternate a few gentle lengths with a while spent lying on the luxury sun loungers, cloud-watching in the sunshine.

The villa’s staff are always on hand so that you never need to lift a finger and are also happy to arrange outdoor activities and outings for you and your party if you feel in need of a mini adventure – or just an afternoon exploring the local beaches by boat or enjoying a food tour of the local villages.

When you return to La Bastide, you’ll always find a warm welcome. At the end of the day, after good food, fine wines, excellent company (and maybe a nightcap out on the terrace) relax in the comfy beds in the serene, en-suite bedrooms.

Location

This luxury villa in Provence is a truly magical place to spend a week. Set in rolling Provencal countryside in the heart of the Alpilles, and nestled in stunning gardens, La Bastide de Flechon is peaceful and relaxing but with plenty to keep everyone busy. You’re just 10 minutes from the historic town of Maussane-Les-Alpilles with its plethora of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, and not far from beautiful Les Baux de Provence.

The closest airport is Avignon Airport which is just 6 kilometers away and Marseille airport is 70 kilometers away. If traveling by private jet, land at the airports of Nîmes, Aix or Avignon, and then arrive to the Mas by helicopter as it can be arranged to land in the fields nearby.

Gare d’Avignon train station is 18 kilometers away.

Eating

La Bastide de Flechon is offered on a bed and breakfast basis so enjoy waking each morning to a breakfast buffet of your choice. Linger over delicious local specialities or simply grab something light and refreshing before the sun starts to warm the breakfast terrace.

Eating local food alfresco is what it’s all about at La Bastide. Take lunch outside at the table for 12 under the shade of the roses, or, in case of a shower of rain, eat at the long table in the pool house where there’s also a summer kitchen and barbecue.

Keen foodies and amateur chefs will enjoy visiting local markets before cooking in the very well-appointed kitchen. And, of course, there are lots of wonderful eateries to explore in the area. We particularly like La Cabro d’Or Baumaniere for its local, seasonal dishes, and Domaine de Manville: La Table for its fabulous glasshouse setting.

Kids

Children love the freedom that comes with life at La Bastide. There’s plenty of space to run and roam and mountain bikes come with the property so the kids can head out exploring on their own. The staff will be only too happy to help you with organising activities, too. From tennis and golf to quad biking and gliding, there’s always something to keep your little adventurers busy. Or why not take a boat out to some of the area’s wild beaches?

The main attraction for kids of all ages, however, is the stunning overflow pool (with shallow section for children), where they will happily spend all day splashing, getting out only for ice creams and barbecues.

Nannies and babysitters can be arranged if needed and baby equipment is also available.
