“A wonderful relaxing oasis”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

On our recent travel through France, my wife and I experienced the most wonderful pleasure of a two day stay at La Bastide Tara, Cabries.
From the moment we arrived at this beautifully presented home, we felt the serenity of the countryside location.
Just a short distance from many of Provences enticing highlights such as Aix en Provence, Marseilles, Matrigues, Cassis, our stay at La Bastide Tara proved to be a great choice to base ourselves.
Ghislaine and Jean-Luc, our hosts, warmly welcomed us and we immediately knew our stay would be extra special. And we were not disappointed.
La Bastide Tara is a beautifully appointed accommodation. Our room was spacious, with quality fittings and facilities and was furnished tastefully with comfortable provincial decor.
Immaculately clean and very private.
We enjoyed Ghislaines company and greatly appreciated her attention to detail, her helpful local advice, her personal interest in us, her wonderful French breakfast with home made bread and jam and her delicious home cooking.
We have great memories of our stay at La Bastide Tara and we thank Ghislaine and Jean-Luc for opening their home and sharing their lives with us.
A big thank you also to Kim, the family dog, who gave us great individual attention and love.
Wish we could have stayed longer.

The place is lovely and pleasant.
The host, Ghislaine is a charming lady,helpful and kind.
The property is very well runed and the garden is outstanding.
It was a bit cold to use the lovely swimming pool with the blue clean water.
The proximity to Aix and all above makes it
Wonderful value for money

Room Tip: We stayed there 1 night and were sorry that we could not stay more. Lovely place, well equipped. Th...

Situated in a calm spot close to the small village of Cabriès, la Bastide Tara is the perfect place to withdraw to after a tough day with business meetings, or simply if you just wish to visit Aix-en-Provence but enjoy the silence in the country side during the night. The house is new but built in the traditional "bastide" style, and offers two clean and spacious rooms with a bed and breakfast concept. Home made French dinner (table d'hôte) may also be offered, depending on the availability of the landlady and the kindness of the guests. A big garden with swimming pool is available although it was a bit cold when we were there in late October.

We chose this place because of its vicinity to the activity centre of la Duranne and for the easy access to the Marseille airport and to the city of Aix. There is a station for the TGV train very close by. I would not hesitate to return for a private holiday!

Room Tip: Choose between the beige or the blue room. Quality sleep is guaranteed in both!
