As we pulled up to the Bastide, at the end of a country road, we smiled - such a lovely welcoming place - an elegant country home set in a Mediterranean garden, with views of the Alpilles beyond.

From the moment we arrived we knew we'd want to return!

The big cool whitewashed rooms are air conditioned, but even in the heat of midsummer, we often didn't need it. The rooms look out over the gardens and beautiful swimming pool, and to the hills beyond.

The restaurant, too, is so inviting. We enjoyed a delicious lunch on the shady terrace.

The public areas are lovely - lots of provencal benches plumped with pillows, big comfortable chairs and couches, a grand piano beside the entry (I had been missing my piano, and played a bit of Beethoven when we arrived), a salon with books, games, and a big fireplace. There are walking paths, a trampoline and ping pong table, and a childrens' play area on the grounds - great for families.

Really gives the feeling of a big welcoming elegant family home.

Our double room was 90 euros, and the Bastide has a three star rating.
