Bastide Provençal

Where is it?

Perched high in the hills of Provence in Peymeinade, around 30 min­utes’ drive from the cen­tre of Cannes.

What’s the ap­peal?

This lovely 17 bed­room bastide was once home to lo­cal leg­end Brigitte Bar­dot, and boasts two vil­las with their own heated swim­ming pools, a wine-pro­duc­ing vine­yard, and ma­ture fruit and olive trees.

What makes it spe­cial?

Lo­ca­tion and vin­tage charm come to­gether to cre­ate an iconic hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion. The cen­ter of Cannes and the French Riviera is around 30 min­utes away and to the north are the Esterel moun­tains and Provençal coun­try­side. Edge Re­treats have added the villa to their port­fo­lio of the world’s most lux­u­ri­ous vil­las, en­abling guests to eas­ily rent the villa for as long as they want via the web­site.

Din­ing

A pri­vate Miche­lin-starred chef can be ar­ranged or you can bring your own. The tra­di­tional kitchen is cosy and wel­com­ing, and there are a miriad other lo­ca­tions to sit down ‘à ta­ble’, in­clud­ing pri­vate off-bed­room pa­tios, a large shaded space on the main ter­race and there is a large pizza over pool­side.

Well­ness

There are two large, heated in­fin­ity swim­ming pools, one out­side each villa, and one en­joys an ad­join­ing 3 x 3-me­tre hot tub. There is also a steam room and an au­then­tic pé­tanque pitch.

Our favourite room

Bastide Provençal is split up into two prop­er­ties, the main house with orig­i­nal stone tower and a sep­a­rate villa. There are 17 bed­rooms to choose from over­all, the big­gest of which is the main house and en­joys a large bath­room with vin­tage tiles and a pri­vate liv­ing room.

How to get there

Well-connected Nice air­port is a half-hour drive away and is the clos­est in­ter­na­tional air­port, while nearby Cannes-man­delieu air­port ac­com­mo­dates pri­vate jets and he­li­copters. www.edgere­treats.com Tel: +44 (0)20 3355 6077
