A week at Avellanne was not enough. Truly a peaceful, beautiful place in an exceptional area of France. First, the location: in the middle of Provence wilderness yet only minutes away from so many sights: medieval and Roman history, mediterranean beaches, vineyards, great towns. Birds chirp in the day and the nightingale sings at night under clear starry skies. Vineyards,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 evenings after a hectic (but fun) 2 weeks in the Lot Valley. This place is in the country...very lovely and very peaceful. Valentina and Steve make sure all details are taken care of and they know the area very well and tell you what not to miss! Just hanging out at the... More

The Bastide Avellanne exceeded our expectations, and we spent a lovely weekend there well looked after by Valentina and Steve. Our room was large, and had a small connecting room that our 3 children slept in (a treat for us to not have them in the same room!), it was spotlessly clean and had a lovely view. Set at the...

We wish to begin by questioning the reviews written by 'up0nthehill' from Ghent and 'alexb2' from London the vast majority of which we do not recognise from our recent stay at the Bastide Avellanne. We did have to ring Valentina to check in but she appeared immediately and thereafter she, Steve and her daughter were perfect hosts - present to... More

Thank you so much Valentina and Steve you were so accommodating and patient with our large group of 12. The rooms were spotless, bathrooms great and beautiful communal areas. We are so glad we found you and hope to return one day. Highly recommended.

Its was my perfect choice to stay at the Bastide Avellanne. Valentina and Steve and other family members were extremely nice and helpfully . Thank you Valentina for the food and thank you Steve for your tips for our trips. When you think of Provence, Provençal décor, and the French countryside, if you to see lavender fields and bright sunshine... More

Bastide Avellanne exceeded my expectations! The property was much larger than I had imagined. I stayed in a ground-floor room in the main house. The room was large, cool, and had a private bathroom. Very comfortable. I spent most of my time here touring the region, and almost wish I had been able to spend more time lounging at the... More

My husband and I spent 6 days in this lovely B and B. We cannot say enough about the wonderful hospitality we received from Valentina and Steve! The room we stayed in, the Van Gogh room, was charming, beautifully decorated, and peaceful. All of the rooms are decorated perfectly, each having it's own special allure. Our hosts were just wonderful,... More

Lovely hosts Valentina & Steve, amazing food, tastefully decorated rooms, peaceful property and a very convenient location to enjoy the Var region at its most. We felt ourselves at home at Bastide and would love to get back in the near future.
