About La Bastide des Etoiles
La Bastide des Étoiles, a superb 19th-century villa set in 25 acres of private parkland, makes the perfect base for family retreats or touring holidays in Provence. Set just outside the beautiful Roman town of Aix-en-Provence, this is a spacious and well-maintained property with charm to spare.
The villa is ideal for large families and groups, with seven well-furnished bedrooms spread over the first and second floor. From the windows there are sublime views across the Massif des Étoiles.
On the ground floor there is a dining room, living room with open fireplace and well-equipped country kitchen with a typical Provençal tiled floor. Each room opens up onto the gardens and terraces, offering a pleasing flow between the interior and expansive grounds.
La Bastide des Étoiles’ grounds are dotted with hundreds of olive trees. The centre of attention, though, is the large heated swimming pool, ideal for cooling off on Provence’s frequent sunny days. There’s also a tennis court and a trampoline for guests who enjoy practicing their backhand and bouncing on holiday.
Just 10 minutes away, Aix-en-Provence is often called the Paris of the south, with its tree-lined boulevards, elegant fountains and cafe culture. If you’re looking for a traditional Provence villa, then this peaceful and scenic property is sure to satisfy.
