We stayed at this gorgeous luxury B&B for two weeks in August and had the most lovely time. We had our two small dogs with us and the self catering studio was a fantastic home for us all to come back to after a long day sightseeing. A welcoming, peaceful and very special place. I can still smell the lavender.... More

Hosts Steve and Valentina and their crew go out of their way to make your stay at the Bastide as perfect as possible. Great accommodation and facilities, hearty food and within striking distance of so much to see and do whether you are hiking, cycling or driving - or you could just veg out around the pool I guess,

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
