Bastide Avellanne, Chambre d'hotes and apartments to rent including a delicious bio restaurant. Bastide Avellanne is a charming fortified Provencal demure dating back to 17th century. Totally refurbished in 2011 it welcomes you with spacious light rooms in country style, all with modern en-suite bathrooms and independent apartments with every comfort. In the Bastide you will find a vast air conditioned lounge with old leather sofas, a stone chimney, exposed beams and a bar. We serve bio/local gastronomy food at the terrace overlooking the mountains and the vineyards. On rainy days we set up the chimney in the red room for a cosy indoor dinning experience.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for one week in this place and fully enjoyed it. The heated pool, the large outdoor spaces, including the tennis court and the two dinners we had there were excellent. As the place is a bit isolated it would be good to offer fridge in the rooms, to be able to store at least some basic food and drinks. The rooms are also very nicely decorated, with lots of space and excellent hygienic products. We only felt the pillows bit uncomfortable and causing lots of sweating, but maybe it was just us. The staff was also very kind and ready to help.

My friends and I stayed at the Bastide for week and it was just perfect! Bastide Avellanne is a beautiful property with several villas, a pool, tennis, and a yoga\workout studio. The grounds are peaceful and beautifully maintained with gardens and trails through the surrounding vineyards. The owner\host, Linn, thinks of everything to make you fell welcome and at home. We did several of the excursions offered and enjoyed them all. The Gorge Verdon was beautiful and relaxing. Cassis was also a lovely day of shopping at the market, wine and lunch, followed by a swim in the Mediterranean. The Bastide is a lovely bed and breakfast that offers the most delicious home made french delites! Every meal was incredible! The staff is most accommodating and truly know how to offer wonderful service! I would highly recommend the Bastide Avellanne for a friend vacation, family reunion or a retreat. We will be back!!!

From May 19 to 25, I spent a lovely week at Bastide Avellanne as part of a yoga-art retreat. The accommodation was charming, comfortable, and very clean. Lin and her team were professional, personable, and fun to be around. The food was creative and so delicious! Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations and I would love to go back!

Stayed here for a week long retreat and Linn and her staff made our stay outstanding. Every detail was taken care of and the quality of service and food was first rate! The facilities were spotless and well tended to both inside and out and Matt (the chef) made us look forward to every meal. There are many things to do to keep yourself busy if you choose not to relax by the pool and the rooms were well appointed. Wi fi is a bit slow and electricity can be tricky at times but these are very minor details in the big picture. All in all lovely memories of my time spent here and I hope to visit again!

I recently spent one week at the Bastide Avellane for an outstanding yoga retreat. The staff at the Bastide is warm, professional very helpful and kind as well as a fun friendly group. The facility is well maintained and clean. The yoga Shala has all necessary mats and props. The food served was all vegetarian, plentiful and well prepared as well as delicious. Being nestled comfortably in rural beautiful Provence was very comfortable and relaxing and provided deep down renewal. The main building is historic, built around 1660 with a varied and interesting history has lovely rooms that are well appointed with wonderful amenities. I look forward to coming back to this serene and tranquil part of paradise. A Big thank you to the staff at the Avellane!

I stayed at Bastide Avellanne in mid Septemeber 2018. The weather was lovely. The staff of 4, and owners Linn and Michael, were warm, freindly, and did everything to make sure our group of 20 was comfortable and cared for. I walked 40 min to town Besse sur Issole that had a post office and well stocked general store. Linn and Michael spoke english easily. Helped arrange car transportation. The meals were adjusted for people with food aversions. The outdoor yoga platform looked out over vineyards. The pool was a wonderful amenity. The staff treated us like family. the rooms were all different, cozy, and warmly decorated. and there was laundry service! We visited a local winery, all organic with the latest technology. The proprietor is well known by Linn.

I stayed at Bastide Avellane with a group of 14 during our Yoga Retreat. The owner, Linn, is a beautiful soul. She is committed to the environment and to maintaining this lovely space so that those that visit can enjoy peace, tranquility, amazing food and drink, spaces filled with positive vibes, and beautiful excursions. Sara and Lee, who work and live at the Bastide Avellanne, are also amazingly wonderful, helpful, caring, and genuinely kind and helpful people. They work very hard to make sure every guest has the best experience. Rafael did an amazing job taking care of us as well. I unfortunately cannot recall the name of the chef, he was shy, but shined in his ability to create amazing meals for us each day. The attention to every detail is just beyond words. The natural beauty of this place along with the quality of the owners, staff make this THE destination in the South of France if you are looking for a family getaway, romantic getaway, or group event!!!

A stunningly beautiful place surrounded by vineyards, lavender, and old oak, this lovely, tastefully renovated historic home is perfect for soaking in the peace and the beauty, as well as for exploring the surrounding region. You'll find walking paths directly out the back door, and fabulous vegetarian meals (a rarity in France) created by the chef, Matt. During my two-week stay, the owners could not have been more generous, kind, and welcoming, as were Sarah, Abelisse, Lee, and Matt. I wish that they were all my neighbors! The place reflects Linn's vision of a ecologically-friendly guest house and a more sustainable future. The stay here was beautiful in every way.
