La Bastide accommodation is very special - it has everything, and I mean everything, a family group could possibly want. It looks exactly as the pictures show, and is full of interesting deco touches making it pretty unique in a fun way. We went with our son, his wife and their 1 year old who had an absolute ball. The gardens are perfect in size and character with all-day sunshine and canopies for shade. The heated pool is to die for and deep enough to dive in at one end. It was like being in our own hotel. Fully equipped with all manner of gadgets to make whatever you want to eat, and a wonderful BBQ as seen in the pictures. At 3km, Its just too far to walk to the village centre and back with a buggy but theres plenty of easy parking in what is a really cute place with all the usual French local essentials - cafe/restaurant/bars, boulangerie, boucherie, intermarche and little Friday market all set in a valley surrounded by the hills of les Alpes Maritimes. Its around 15 minutes from Grasse which is a lovely town with winding streets and plenty of eateries! It's also the perfume manufacturing centre of the nation. But the loveliest place to visit is nearby Cabris, 10 minutes drive along winding roads from La Bastide, the village has the most beautiful view over the valley all the way to Cannes, and a michelin-listed restaurant which should be michelin-starred it was that good. Back to the villa, being single storey is a great advantage - no stairs obviously, and the bedrooms are nice and cool - stone walls, and dark when shutters are closed at night. There are two well appointed bathrooms, one has a freestanding spa shower, the other has a bath and shower over it. Both have WCs, and there is a separate 3rd WC. Just one thing to be aware of, the drainage method is via a distant sceptic tank, and you will need to get your head around the loo paper thing. (ask me!), but everything works really well. Nadia the owner is super-friendly and efficient, and there are lots of helpful written tips to help guests navigate the villa and its contents. You will not be disappointed if you choose this stay, and we would definitely go again.
