Bastide Des Virettes

World Travel Magazine - - Where To Stay -

Sit­ting pretty in the hills of Provence, this stun­ning stone villa is steeped in ro­mance, filled with rare an­tiques, and ex­pertly staffed. The fra­grant me­dieval vil­lage of Tour­rettes-sur-loup is a stone’s throw away. Aptly named the vil­lage of vi­o­lets, the del­i­cate flo­ral scent blends beau­ti­fully with the salt air sweep­ing in from the Mediterranean. Well-tended gar­dens and ter­races re­lax around the four-bed home, invit­ing al-fresco sup­pers and star­lit swims in the 15-me­ter pool hewn into the rock. Open plan in­te­ri­ors cap­ture a beau­ti­ful baroque feel, punc­tu­ated with well-col­lected wood fur­nish­ings and art­works from across France. A chil­dren’s play­room and dou­ble kitchen make it an idyl­lic fam­ily re­treat, along with a pri­vate en­tourage of a chef, nanny and concierge to make your visit run like a dream. Up­stairs, four el­e­gant bedrooms dressed in pas­tel shades in­vite easy sleeps. The mas­ter bed­room boasts a mar­ble bath­room, French doors and balcony views that sweep across the sea.­ury-hol­i­days
