“Beautiful B&B in Venelles -- close to all sights in northern Provence!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This B&B is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly located to Aix-en-Provence. It allows one to experience a provincial French town while also being near a large, cosmopolitan city. My husband, daughter, and I stayed in the Zen room and it was beautiful and clean -- you can tell that Catherine has put a lot of thought into decorating the room and the property. The bathroom has an amazing tub and stand alone shower, bed was comfortable and cozy, and has a gorgeous private terrace that overlooks the pool and Saint Victoire mountain. The breakfast area is also lovely and overlooks the town of Venelle; and I have to mention that Catherine also makes delicious jams and serves them with fresh bread and croissants each morning. Catherine has wonderful recommendations for restaurants both in Venelles and in Aix-en-Provence, as well lots of recommendations for day trips to places like Luberon and Cassis. The best part of our stay was Catherine's 3.5 year old son; our daughter is the same age and looked forward each morning to playing with Catherine's son. It was so adorable to see them both playing! We will definitely return to La Bastide Perchee in the future! Merci, Rani

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a family, the Zen room is a great choice!

We spent three nights here in June. Our room was the 'black and white' room which of couse was designed in black and white. The room was large and spotlessly clean. Comfortable king size bed and good size bathroom. Separate toilet. Small terrace outside. Very quiet. Minor point of criticism is that we could have used a bit more storage space for our clothes. Finding the house is easy provided you have a good navigation system. That same system is needed to go to and from Aix en Provence which is about a 10 mts drive away. The very friendly and informative hostess will tell you where best to park your car.
The swimming pool close to the house has stunning views over the valley and here you can smell he typical Provence fragrances. It is a good plcae to relax at whatever time of the day.
Breakfast is outiside (unless you are unlucky with the weather) and includes home made jam and cake as well as fresh orange juice. Wifi is good. The best restaurant experience in Aix was "Le Tomate Vert', one of the places recommended to us by our hostess.
This is a place we will definitely come back to.

A tranquil , well-appointed home base , situated just north of Aix and excellent starting point to discover the northern villages/ mountain terrain of Provence. Bedroom, sunroom/ breakfast terrace , and pool area all face green valley spread out below and Mt. St. Victoire in the distance. Run with grace and warmth by a young family anxious to make your stay as pleasing as possible.

We were really happy to stay in this hotel. We highly recommend it and we are planning to stay again in this hotel next time we visit some family in the region. The view from the bedroom is great and the swimming pool looks amazing. Too bad the weather wasnt great when we stayed there but I am sure it will be next time we are in Venelles.

During our vacation in France, my wife and I decided to make a brief detour to Aix en Provence. In our scramble to find suitable accommodations, we came across La Bastide Perchee, a 10 minute drive from Aix in the quaint village of Venelles.

I cannot over emphasize the richness of the experience we had, and the warmth of our hosts who, in spite of having a full house, always made time to ensure that our stay was relaxing, authentic to the region and considerate of everything we wanted to explore during our time there. From providing us with bicycles to cruise around Venelles, ensuring reliable travel to and from Aix and recommending great restaurants, the customer service was only overshadowed by the clean, modern rooms, the relaxing pool located at the back of the house and the wonderful view of the mountains from our window.

My wife and I are fully committed to returning to Aix and spend our time at La Bastide Perchee. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time under a warm sun and the care of a great host, I urge your to consider the same.

Room Tip: Although all the rooms we saw were fantastic, the Zen is considered the best in terms of space, desi...

Beautifully decorated rooms with excellent breakfast and friendly hosts. What more could one ask for? Room overlooked rolling hills and the gorgeous Sainte Victoire mountain in the backdrop. Will certainly revisit.

La Bastide Perchee is a relatively new B & B in Venelles, a sleepy town about 5 minutes north of Aix-en-Provence. We stayed in the "Zen" room which is nicely appointed, comfortable, private and large. The B&B has a nice pool which we were unable to use as it is not heated but they light it at night with a changing color wheel - very nice. The location allowed us to do several day trips throughout Provence. I would recommend having GPS as it is somewhat difficult to find. Venelles itself doesn't have much in the way of dining, but there are many very nice restaurants in Aix. The owner, Catherine, was very helpful in helping us decide where to go on our day trips.

Room Tip: We were able to look at all four rooms, each looked very nicely decorated. I don't think you ca...
