A warm welcome awaits you by the Lecomte family in their  Provençal Bastide, a monastery of the late 18th century.

 Located just a few minutes from the very center of Aix en Provence, the Bastide offers five beautifully decorated guest rooms,  with fine period and country furniture, Provençal fabric and luxurious bed linens.  Two rooms are air conditioned.


Once mas, bastide, monastery,vineyard, our 18th   century bastide has undergone total restoration.  



The peaceful and sunny setting among two acres of gardens offers total relaxation, by the large swimming pool, or around a game of badminton, ping pong and, of course, pétanque under the  parasol pine trees.

The established garden includes almond, olive, eucalyptus, sycamore, chestnut and lime trees. The unique vegetable and herb gardens will  be a delight  for  all eyes.

 

 
Enjoy a gourmet breakfast prepared by Caroline each morning on the patio, before exploring the charms of Aix en Provence and the glorious country side much admired by notorious painters and poets.
