Our heart still skips a beat

  • 5 of 5

18 June 2016.

Back again and even though we know the place so well now, our heart still skips a beat when we first walk through that little door.

We were very lucky to see the Gheko at least once a day and do think there may now be more than one !

Thank you again so much Jean-Marie, and we love all of the new additions you have made.

We return home feeling so much better than when we arrived.

Until next year !

Privacy, beauty, sanctuary, silence, sun.

  • 5 of 5

September 26, 2016.

We worked through our short Summer in Nova Scotia Canada, this year. Our compensation, a week in Provence. We had 7 days of sun, 23-28°, and swam in the pool every day. Provence has stolen your hearts. We have travelled extensively in France, but the Luberon charmed us. Hiking « petit randonnée » every morning, and then the REWARD- returning to Le Petit Bastidon for swimming, Champagne, cheese, bread.

Privacy, beauty, sanctuary, silence, sun. Merci beaucoup over & over again Jean-Marie for creating such a perfect paradise.

We shall return !

Better than our previous 2 visits

  • 5 of 5

We didn't think it would be possible for it to be better than our previous 2 visits, but it has been. Le petit Bastidon looked perfect on arrival and the smell of honeysuckle when you walked in through that little door was wonderful.

The shopkeepers in Gordes are now recognising us – the charcuterie, le supermarché et le tabac, which makes the experience extra special.

We have already made plans for our return visit next year, which makes leaving that tiny bit easier.

Thank you so much

What a haven of tranquility

  • 5 of 5

06 to 20 June 2015.

We have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Le Petit Bastidon. It's been hard to tear ourselves away from the beautiful pool and garden, but the location is superb for visiting the hill-top villages and beyond. And what a haven of tranquility to come back to at the end of the day ! The house is perfect – with every home comfort, and more ! We really hope to return one day... until then, we'll have away some very happy memories of the two weeks we have spent here.

Merci à Jean-Marie pour tout !

A haven to return to and relax

  • 5 of 5

27 Sept – 11 Oct 2014.

We were in need of a long awaited holiday and after a lot of research, decided on Le petit Bastidon – Gordes. Even though quite late in the season, we enjoyed very good weather and explored many hill-top villages, museums and shops as well as 2 trips to Avignon, we thoroughly recommend a visit.

Le petit Bastidon was always a haven to return to and relax. We enjoyed some great home cooking! Ratatouille and the odd BBQ :-) :-)

Gordes was always our « go to » place, - park up and walk through the lanes leading up to the main square - Mamie Jane for bread and pastries, then to sit outside and enjoy Café Crème and Thé Vert, while watching the people pass by. Restaurants all very good, our favorite was L'Artégal.

Immediate relaxation

  • 5 of 5

14-21 June 2014.

Back again and very happy to find everything is still as we remembered it – apart from the new arrangment of furniture which we loved. Arrived in hot sunshine and received a lovely welcome from Viviane and then immediate relaxation. Lovely walks each day, shopping for supplies in Gordes than back to the peace and tranquility of Le petit Bastidon, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise with us. Already looking forward to next year!

Neil & Jo.
