This distinguished old bastide (manor house) is one of the most spectacular and largest Provence villa rentals on the market. With space for up to 25 guests, its perfect for a large group of friends or several families renting together. In-house chef and maid service are included, allowing guests to relax and enjoy a memorable holiday in the heart of the Luberon region.
With a heated swimming pool, private tennis court, table tennis and billiards, as well as bicycles for exploring the surrounding countryside, there are activities to please your entire group. Set on over 6 acres of land, the extensive gardens offer views across a small lavender field and the Luberon hills.
Theres an abundance of space in the recently-renovated 18th-century building, and its smaller annex. The partly air-conditioned villa includes several large living areas and an open plan dining room with a fireplace. The spacious French Country kitchen has everything the on-site chef needs to prepare delicious Provenal meals: youll be greeted by a welcome dinner when you arrive.
Four of the eleven bedrooms are on the first (European) floor, four on the second and the remaining three in the annex. The en-suite King size bedrooms on the first floor are ideal for couples, while teens and older children can enjoy their own space in the dorm-style bedrooms upstairs. Of the nine bathrooms, seven are ensuite.
Bastide St Martin is situated at the foot of Grand Luberon mountain in a region celebrated for its scenery, in particular the lavender fields which turn the landscape purple in late June and July. There is a small private aerodrome nearby with a small landing field (800 meters / 2625 feet) ideal for guests flying in on their own plane.

Astonishing villa, best imaginable Provence landscape. The house is far and hard to get to especially if you want to visit the Provence towns every day. But it is nice for those who just want to stay in the house and just rest.
