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!
