After arriving in Nice,my friends and I were swept away to a a hilly landscape of vineyards, trees and relaxation. Within about 1 hour of Nice, the Medittaranean and not far from the Southern Alps, the Bastide Avellane is ideally situated for stay - or travel. Steve and Valentina, the owners, are warm, friendly, funny, knowledgeable and as hospitable as... More

I recently spent a week at the Bastide Avellanne B&B and am still having withdrawal. The experience there was better than I could have imagined. I stayed at another B& B last summer, closer to Toulouse and the two do not even come close in comparison. Valentina and Steve were our hosts during this visit and from the moment we... More

I was recently at the Bastide for an outdoor painting workshop, and everything was first class from the minute we were picked up at the Nice airport. Valentina and Steve were the perfect hosts; warm, friendly, knowledgable and professional. The premises were beautiful, the rooms extremely comfortable and the food excellent. We spent time painting on the grounds and every... More

Set amidst the background of beautiful vineyards and lavender you will find Bastide Avellane. We were welcomed with open arms by Valentina and Steve to their lovely property. The rooms were so charming, each one different, and extremely clean. All the comforts of home! It only took a few minutes to settle in and start to enjoy the calmness of... More

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
