The building and physical surrounds are truly beautiful .
La Baside is hard to locate and while we'd read that on trip advisor we underestimated what a challenge it was to find the place .
The gentleman who "greeted" (sic) us after an arduous trip was less than pleasant and the car park spaces ( despite acres of land to spare ) are tiny and an accident waiting to happen....hardly a comfortable situation after a long journey.
The women at La Bastide were pleasant.
There is pressure to eat in and no self coffee/tea making facilities were available in the room.
The delightful addition of peaches in the room only happened on the first day... it was not continued.
I get the impression La Bastide caters for the world weary who don't move from the pool ,the spa and the cuisine .
They don't seem to understand that overseas visitors like to explore,request maps and savour suggestions etc.
We couldn't even score a map.
When I was asked to comment on Guest apartment services in Paris it struck me how much more competent Guest was in meeting their customers needs.
