BASTIDE COMBINING CHARM,PRESTIGE. HEATED POOL. OUR CHEF COOKS A WELCOME DINNER

Aix-En-Provence House Rental Photos and Description

“ Bastide 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 district 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 are eager to continue to meet so many different guests.

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!

You can follow us on twitter and Facebook to see more pictures of the property and to know more about restaurants, activities and history of Provence.

Spectacular Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I have been delayed in writing but had to share what a beautiful villa Corrine and her family provided. We were a group of 8 coming to Aix to visit our daughter going to University there. The room configuration allowed each family unit to have their own space, including a first floor room with shower for elderly grandparents. We spent quite a bit of time at the Villa and had our daughter's classmates out for a BBQ. Needless to say, the pool and surroundings were a highlight.

Having Chef Mika prepare a special meal on arrival really set a wonderful tone for the start of our vacation and was also a relief not to have to forage for groceries after 2 days of travel! We so enjoyed the meal that we had Chef Mika come again to prepare a special birthday dinner. As a group, we prepared breakfast and dinner daily. The kitchen was fully equipped and we lacked for nothing. All of us came back wishing we could have coffee from the Miele on the Villa patio every morning.

Corrine and her husband were easy to work with and really delightful, warm hosts. While their english was quite good, we found it easiest to have our daughter communicate in French.

The location of the Villa is a bit remote, but actually an easy drive to Aix and other towns once you know the way. We did get lost our first time to the Villa. Be sure to start with a good map and directions!

All in all, our stay at the Villa exceeded our expectations and we hope to return to visit Corrine and the Bastide again soon!

The house is as charming and comfortable as it looks in the pictures. It is located in a country setting and is well kept and very clean. The owner was flexible and responsive to our needs. We were a family of 8, Grandma, grandpa, daughter, son in-law, and 4 young grand girls. Entertainment on site consisted of a pool table, foozball table, bicycles and a swimming pool that kept everyone busy when we were not off exploring. Aix en Provence, Le Baux, Gordes, St. Tropez, Casiss, Bandol were a few of our adventures that were in a short driving distance away. We also took the train from Aix to Paris which was an easy three hour commute. We all enjoyed frequenting Paul, a bakery/cafe in Celony that was 8 minutes away. This house was a great choice for our family and we would stay there again.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay celebrating a special birthday. The house was perfect-ideal for a wide age range-we had 3 generations and all were thrilled with what the house had to offer. The house was very well equipped, and beautifully designed with a lovely sense of contemporary elegance. The pool was a good size and greatly appreciated on a hot summer afternoon! Great to have access to bikes for popping to the boulangerie nearby and exporting the beautiful surroundings. The chef cooked a spectacular meal which really was the icing on the cake. We would be very keen to return and have recommended it to many friends and family. Corinne was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble and the house has a fantastic folder of local attractions and vineyards to explore. Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing week away

The House of Our Dreams

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed 10 days in this beautiful and charming house, with our family.
The house is as beautiful as the pictures in the website. Very well equipped with the best utilities, clean and confortable.
Corinne is such a enchanting person. Everything we needed, she provided right away.
Also, the dinner provided by Corinne and Mika is delicious. The chef cooks at the house, very fast, and the food is just so amazing.
We will definitely come back.
Thank you Corinne, for making our dream come true!

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.
