Our Summer trip to Provence and Paris included a 5-night stay with Annie and Pierre at La Bastide des Princes. We chose this property based upon reviews on Trip Advisor. Annie greeted us as we arrived on property and welcomed us to their home which is a lovely, centuries old property they have restored and taken care of wonderfully. She provided us with a local map, several brochures and offered suggestions of places to see including the estimated time it would take to make the trip to the specific sites. She also suggested restaurants/cafes both locally and in other towns around the area for lunch and dinner.
There is plenty of parking inside the gate and near the entrance. The grounds were well maintained with many areas to sit outside and relax under the trees or by the pool. Since the property is outside of town, you can definitely relax and spend some quite time outdoors if you would like. Our room was Helene located upstairs from the main entrance. The room is quite large and comfortable and included an extra twin bed for families. The room was equipped with TV and air conditioning.
Each morning we enjoyed a large breakfast outside on the patio that included warm croissants and baguettes, pain au chocolat, hard boiled eggs, cheeses, yogurt, preservers and coffee/tea. We could not pass up the opportunity to have dinner prepared by Pierre on 3 evenings during our stay. Dinner was served outside under a covered terrace and included an aperitif, appetizer, entrée, cheese course and dessert. The menus were quite varied and included items such as rabbit, fish, pheasant, lamb, beef and chicken. As you would imagine the accompaniments included many of the local Provence vegetables thoughtfully prepared in imaginative ways. All of our meals were delicious and masterfully prepared and presented. Desserts were a highlight and were served on dishes resembling an artist’s palette. The presentations were a delight to the eyes and sinfully pleasing to our stomachs.
La Bastide des Prince is a wonderful place to stay. Annie and Pierre are wonderful hosts. They are very accommodating, helpful and will do whatever they can to help you get the most out of your visit. We recommend staying here as part of your trip to Provence!
