Accommodating up to 12 people, the “Bastide La Valentine” is a lovely luxury provençal stoned-built house of 260 m2 (2798 sq feet) situated in Aix-en-Provence in the very sought-after district of Puyricard. It is at 12 minutes by car (9 Km) from the historical center of Aix-en-Provence. The elegant Bastide combines the sophistication of the nineteenth century and the contemporary style in order to offer our guests a moment of real relaxation in the 1.4-hectare park (3,5 acres)… From our lavender field, you can admire 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.
Facing the south, with large windows opening to the east and west, the rooms in La Bastide invite in the magical Provencal sun, giving a feeling of joy and well-being to each moment of the day. All the rooms are equipped with air conditioning.
A modern and fully equipped kitchen ready to welcome even the best chefs, will help you to create wonderful meals with local products ... yes indeed, you are in Provence! It’s spacious enough to share special moments in the kitchen with your family or friends.
On the ground floor, there are also a play room (American billiards, table football), a large living room, a dining room (expandable table 12 persons) and 2 bedrooms with bath, shower and private WC.
Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower and separate toilets.
To maximize privacy, the 6 bedrooms are spread out on different floors and areas of the house.
Outside, a beautiful, shady terrace looks out into a spacious garden where you can play ping-pong and children are free to run about or do somersaults on the grass without bothering anyone relaxing on the lounge chairs by the large swimming pool (which is heated in mid-season).
A large, comfortable outdoor table and a barbeque grill beckon you to enjoy the fresh Provencal air any time of the year. You will also find high-end garden furniture such as luxury umbrellas, outdoor shower….
La Bastide is more than just a vacation rental, it’s a way of life, a simple luxury to lose yourself in the serenity of it. It is perfect 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 vineyards 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, piano festival, numerous museums) which invites you to charming walks...
There are many attractions 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 Sainte-Victoire mountain with a guide or do a guided tour of Aix-en-Provence. There are many local vineyards and charming Provencal villages all around.
We are very happy to welcome and learn from people of diverse nationalities. Thus far, we have hosted people from USA, Germany, Bermuda, France, 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!

About Bastide la Valentine
The owners are a couple from Aix-en- Provence. This couple have 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 will answer your emails and make sure that everything is well organised before your arrival. He will book the chef for you and answer all you questions regarding your booking.

Six of us stayed in September for a week. Damien was very accommodating and the place was spotless- you could probably eat off of the floor it was that clean. Check in is at 5pm- our flight from the states landed in the morning and Damien met us at the house and stored our luggage so that we could go to Aix and return that evening for check in. There was plenty of room for the six of us to gather together as well as spend time privately. Supplies such as toilet paper and paper towels are limited so plan on adding that to your market list. Kitchen is well supplied with everything you need to prepare meals. All of us agreed that the built in coffee maker/grinder is the best! I miss that coffee and even looked up purchasing a similar system... We spent a lot of time driving to St. Tropez, Luberon Region, Cassis and The Pont Du Gard. If you value privacy over location and you don't mind driving a couple of hours each day this is the place to stay.
We have just returned from a week here,such a lovely holiday.
The house is beautiful in the most wonderful location.....it has everything one needs to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Damien and his mother are delightful and helpful in every possible way.
A holiday to remember
Our family holiday had been booked for some time. Eight adults, 4 children and a baby had excited expectation of this holiday, and we were not disappointed. From our welcome, by Damien and his Mum and Dad, it was clear that they had great pride in their beautiful house. Rightly so! The house and grounds more than matched the description. Immaculately presented, great thought has obviously gone into not just the house, but the garden and grounds. A wonderful pool, table tennis, boules,pool table, football table, bikes and all set in an idyllic environment. Situated in a wonderful area with much to see, it would be true to say that the lure of the house often won out. Everyone was happy to do a little exploring but eager to return to Bastide la Valentine. Long evenings spent eating outdoors, relaxing, enjoying our surroundings, was a treat for all of us. Culminating in our fantastic gastronomic experience, what a treat! Our holiday was truly special. We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending this wonderful house.
Thank you again,
Susan and David Taylor and Family
Paradise in Provence
Our family spent two wonderful weeks at Bastide La Valentine. We ranged in age from 9 to 86 years old and everybody enjoyed the beautiful home with the modern style, the vast gardens with manicured landscaping, the heated pool, the many games (pool, table football, table tennis, volleyball in the pool, soccer field, and many more). Every bedroom has a TV, but Provence is too gorgeous to waste time watching TV. You would need a car to visit the nearby villages and Aix au Provence markets on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. However, with Uber one can navigate too. Damien and his parents were extremely friendly and helpful and we felt like they were old friends. The two bedrooms on the first floor were perfect for the older people who had knee problems. Plenty of space to relax and eat together, inside or outside. The chef prepared dinner was the cherry on the whipped cream. I would recommend this home without any hesitation.
Relaxing haven for a group holiday
The house is amazing in its setting, presentation and the standard of finish. We had such a lovely time exploring the grounds and local area. Damien was easy to deal with and can point you to all the spots to shop, eat and explore.
We were a group with couples and children and the house had enough space for us all to be able to have our own space and not be on top of each other.
I'd highly recommend it as a place to holiday.
An experience of a lifetime
Staying at Bastide-lavalentine was a perfect location for us to enjoy our family holiday. From there we went hot air ballooning,
Visited the Puyricard Chocolatier, experienced a Provencal cooking class and had a truffle demonstration at Chez Serge. Damien and his family were excellent hosts and shared the true hospitality of Provence. Would definitely go back!
The bastide is in the countryside, 12 minutes north of Aix en Provence, surrounded by fields and close to the forest. Close to the small village of Puyricard which 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. From the bastide to Avignon it takes 1 hour and 10 minutes (75 Km)
