We have been going to Vaison, and the Bastide from many years. To say it feels like home may sound far-fetched but once you succumb to its lure, you will dream of it all year and when you arrive you will feel like you are better than home. The setting is incredible, with magnificent views of the mountains and the vineyards, and gorgeous landscaping. You can see all this from the pool, which is gorgeous and well-equipped. The common rooms (living room, panoramic balcony, and billiard room) are tasteful and just great for the rare rainy day. The Bastide is five minutes by car from Vaison, a lively town with lots of restaurants and opportunities for people watching. Yet once you turn down the little road that leads you to the Bastide, you feel as if you are miles away, and the total quiet makes that even more a reality. Marie, the owner, thinks of everything, even English and French newspapers in the morning and the local fruits in season that are at their peak. The five rooms have several price levels, and are beautifully equipped with toiletries, towels, antique-style furniture, modern fixtures, flashlights...even complimentary corkscrews and Perrier and Evian in the refrigerator! We have met people from all over the world at the Bastide and when Marie cooks her superb dinners always have great Provencal food and lively conversation. This beautiful old house draws you in, and never lets you go. Long may it thrive!
