About Bastide de Routas
This imposing farmhouse has been restored to perfection with sumptuous interiors and forms the grand centrepiece of a verdant 2.5km² estate, and in an enviable location for wine production. Bastide de Routas is located within reach of Provence and the French Riviera, and is a great villa for family gatherings and special occasions.
Spread across Bastide de Routas’ two spacious floors are eight sumptuous bedrooms. Bright, contemporary furniture, a television, iPod docking station and an en suite opulently stocked with toiletries grace each. The master bedroom also boasts its own private terrace and separate dressing room.
The living rooms are styled with a blend of authentic fireplaces, grand gild-framed portraits and welcoming sofas. The sophisticated air retains many homely touches: this is definitely a place to live in, not to admire from a distance.
Outdoors, several shaded terraces provide ample opportunity for al fresco dining. The swimming pool begs you to ripple its smooth surface and four bikes invite you to explore the private woodland pathways just beyond the manicured lawns.
Movie fans may feel they have died and gone to Hollywood heaven. There’s a full-wall screen home cinema, complete with reclining seats fitted with drink holders, where you can watch an extensive collection of movies. We searched in vain for a gold-framed popcorn machine but, beyond this, it’s truly hard to imagine a villa in the Var region that delivers with such unfaltering style.
