BASTIDE LA VALENTINE- VILLA WITH VINTAGE CHARM BUT MODERN COMFORT -HEATED POOL

Aix-En-Provence House Rental Photos and Description

“La Valentine” is a lovely luxury Bastide (250 m2) situated 7 km from the historical center of Aix-en-Provence in the very sought after dedistrict of Puyricard – the elegant Bastide combines the sophistication of the nineteenth century to contemporary style in order to offer guests a moment of real relaxation in the 1.4-hectare park… from the garden you can perceive the mountain of Sainte Victoire, so dear to the painter Paul Cézanne.

Arriving at the Valentine, you will be warmly welcomed by the owners, who will meet all your needs.

To relax in the evening of your arrival, we offer our guests a free Provencal meal prepared before you by the Chef. Having worked in prestigious kitchens, the chef is a perfectionist; he likes to give free rein to his creativity while being in love with local produce. He invites you to discover his gastronomic cuisine that you will enjoy with emotion on the beautiful terrace (only valid for a minimum stay of one week).

In the Bastide “La Valentine” all the living spaces are very bright and sunny.

A modern and fully equipped kitchen will help you to create wonderful meals with local products ... yes indeed, you are in Provence!

On the ground floor there is also a play room (American billiards, table football), a large living room, a dining room (expandable table 12 persons) and 2 rooms with bath, shower and private WC.

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower and separate toilets.

Outside, on a shaded terrace and near to the large swimming pool (heated in mean season) a barbecue, a table tennis and comfortable garden furniture await you.

Accommodating up to 12 people, the Bastide of La Valentine is reserved for guests enjoying the quiet of the countryside. Close to the center of Aix-en-Provence, we provide bicycles to get to the bakery and wine domains which are not far from our property - we hope to see you soon in this haven of peace and comfort.

Aix-en-Provence is a city of art and culture (international art festival, lyrical piano festival, many museums) which invites you to charming ballads...

There are many things to see and visit in the area. You can rent a boat in Marseille with a skipper and visit the Calanques, the stunning cliffs that line the Mediterranean coast. You can visit the beautiful Mount Saint Victoire with a guide or do a guided tour of Aix en Provence. There are many local vineyards and charming Provencal villages all around.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can try hang gliding or rent a plane at the Aerodrome. There is also a golf course and tennis courts, but if you don’t want to leave the tranquility of the Valentine, you can also arrange to have a personal trainer come to the house

We are very happy to welcome and learn from people of diverse nationalities and backgrounds. Thus far, we have hosted people from USA, Germany, Bermuda, France, China, UK and more. We aim to have more and more diversity.

We are always available at short notice for any enquiries you may have during your stay and it will be our pleasure to welcome you at the Bastide!

The owners are a couple of locals who renovated the bastide with the intention to rent it out from time to time. This is why the features do perfectly fit for a holiday home.

They are very keen on maintaining the very good condition of a 'new house', faithful to the photos.

But like our last guest from Miami said :'It is even better than the photos!'

Corinne Loyau purchased this house in 2011

Old 19th century country house totally renovated in modern style.

Large grounds, quiet and secluded, yet 2min by car and 10 min by bike from amenities and shopping.

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful villa while celebrating a special 50th birthday with friends. All three couples enjoyed the privacy of their own updated bathrooms and the kitchen was perfect for preparing our big dinners outside on the lovely patio overlooking the pool. The owners/family take great pride in ensuring everything was perfect and clean for our stay. The villa is private but convenient to get to all the treasures of Provence.

Wonderful family vacation home

We had an excellent time at Bastide La Valentine. The owner was wonderful. Perfect home for more than one family. Home is in a private area, clean, beautiful kitchen. There are 3 separate private sleeping areas each with 2 double bedrooms and bathrooms. Perfect for teens. Our children didn't need TV - plenty to do roaming around the property, riding bikes, swimming and playing pool. It is a great location for day trips into Aix, Arles etc. We really didn't want to leave and I hope one day we can return!

Escape to Provence 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bastide 'La Valentine'. The house is just beautiful and the hosts are so warm and welcoming. It is the perfect place for an extended family to stay since the rooms are divided into separate wings of the house so everyone has a private space. It was wonderful to experience the French countryside in all its glory - there are many wineries and the pretty town of Puryichard within minutes. We also enjoyed walking the narrow roads around the house. The owners are incredibly helpful in setting up activities such as a private chef, and the owner's son speaks excellent English as well. I would recommend the property to friends and family and would certainly go back. The photos perfectly display the beautiful property that awaits!!

Perfect Place!

We spent a very nice and relaxing week on the property. The house and the outside area, which is really big, is extremly nice with a perfect equipment, even for bad weather days. Everything is very new and clean. It is very easy to feel at home! We enjoyed our holidays very much.
It is a very relaxing place, you only hear the birds and the trees. Nevertheless Aix-en-Provence is very close (15 min by car to the center).
The owners were very welcoming. We have been there with our 1,5 year old son and they bought for him a bed and a childchair, so that we did not have to bring the things with us.
We will come back!

In the countryside 5min north of Aix en Provence, surrounded by fields and close to the forest. The small town has all amenities and grocery shopping as well as a weekly greenmarket. You can do snorkeling and water leisure in the Mediterranean just 40min away. Ideal location for rest and quietness, close enough from Aix en Provence, le Lubéron, Avignon and Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture in 2013.
