Hotel Bastide is located 200m walk from the centre of the village of Lourmarin. We were thrilled with our room, which was one of the 'Chambres Ambiance' rooms (our room was called 'de la Romantique' and when we are next back in Lourmarin, we will be asking for the same room - it was Brilliant). Our room was in very new condition, very clean, comfortable and about 30m2 in size (which is huge by French standards). While we did not dine at the hotel, as there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from in the village, the hotel did have a nice pool side bar. I am suprised that this hotel is only rated 3 stars. I would have thought 4 stars was more appropriate.
The hotel, and Lourmarin in particular, serves as a great base for exploring Provences picturesque Lubron Valley region. Some great nearby towns to explore, which are within 40 min drive of Lourmarin, include Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussllion. While we did spend time in these towns, Lourmarin was definently our favourite. It has a real village feel to it, but has a lot more to chose from by way of boutique shops, cafes and great restaurants (including a 2 star Michelion located 5 min outside the village).
The only downside to the hotel was that when they did our laundry service, they shrunk all my t-shirts! While this was annoying, it will not stop us from returning...we will just not be using their laundry service again.
All in all, Hotel Bastide offers great value for money, provides very comfortable, spacious rooms in picturesque surroundings and is located in what we consider to be the best village in Provence - Lourmarin. We highly recommend this hotel.
Thank you for a memorable stay.
