We stayed at La Bastide des Anges for a week from the end of March into April after reading wonderful reviews. If anything, these were understated. This outstanding B&B is less than 10 minutes from Avignon on the lovely little island of Barthelasse. It has gracefully landscaped grounds in a tranquil country setting full of interesting trees, flower beds and bushes. The house is remarkably beautiful with tasteful furnishings and ‘an angels watching over you’ theme throughout that is manifested by statues, paintings and other reminders that create a sense of peace and well being
The room we stayed in, Les Ocres, was perfect. It was large, well arranged and overlooked an inviting terrace. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom had dual sinks and a luxurious shower.
Beatrice, our hostess, is a kind, thoughtful, generous and intelligent woman. Our conversations with her gave us a deeper understanding of Provence and France in general. She offered excellent tactful advice about what to see and do in Provence. For example, she helped us arrange our itinerary to include beautiful villages such as Gordes and Fontaine de Vaucluse. She suggested an interesting street market in St-Remy. Also, she gave us tips on where to get traditional Provencal foods such as Calisson and where to park in busy places like Arles.
The breakfasts were varied and delicious with amazingly good breads, cheeses, farm fresh juices and homemade yogurt and preserves that were superb! The common areas were very large, warm and welcoming with a subtle beguiling scent of flowers.
It’s only been two weeks since we returned to our home in the U.S. but already we are dreaming of returning to this idyllic B&B. We can’t imagine a more perfect place to stay in Province.
