La Bastidonne is set in a peaceful rural setting just a few minutes drive from Cereste, a working village with everything you will need for your stay here. There are five double bedrooms, three of which lead out onto a south facing terrace. The largest bedroom has a communicating door leading to the smallest one, which may be of benefit to parents with small children. There are three double beds and four singles. Three bedrooms have en-suite and there is one further shower-room.

You can expect your holiday here to be quite and relaxing, offering an opportunity to experience the laid back unhurried lifestyle of Provence visiting the local markets to augment long lazy lunches, poolside afternoons and barbeque evenings. There is Sky television with sports and wi-fi access.

There are local towns to explore and the larger historical ones of Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Marseille and the Mediterranean resort of Cassis all approximately one to one and a half hours away.

Also there are places/things of interest, like the Gorges du Verdon and Colorado sand park in the local vicinity

La Bastidonne offers a comfortable stay for families in safe, calm and pleasant surroundings, while letting those who may feel they want to be more active, the chance to see more that this stunning area of France has to offer, however, we feel that once you are settled in, you may not wish to venture far.

The area is well frequented by walkers and cyclists.

Other attractions in the region include perched villages, for example, Menerbes [Peter Mayles], Bonnieux and Gordes. There are too many vineyards to mention; most of the vineyards welcome visitors and have tastings.
