What a amazing place Le Petit Bastidon is. Entry is via a gate in a wall - almost like entering the 'Secret Garden'. Every detail has been taken care of by the owners with well-thought out accommodation, a lovely swimming pool and a beautiful garden.
With sliding glass doors on both sides of the living area you have a view out to the garden, whatever the weather. The kitchen has everything you might need for stay and there's a decent sized dining table and a sofa for lounging. The bedroom is a good size, with air-conditioning, and the only thing that possibly could be improved is the bed and pillows which were a little uncomfortable. The shower room has been really nicely done although as it is a wet room, it would benefit from better ventilation. That said, we were there in October, and in damp weather, which probably didn't help!
Outside is fantastic with a number of different areas for sitting or lying - very thoughtfully planned and designed. We usually had breakfast on a little bistro table by the house and then moved to the more relaxed loungers by the pool when the weather allowed us. The pool is fabulous although we only braved it the once. The garden is so well looked after and there's a lovely herb garden which you can use if you're cooking a meal.
The owners were so welcoming and friendly, yet unobtrusive during our stay. Top marks to them all round!
As for the area, well, it's a complete delight. Everywhere you turn there's a beautiful view whether it's the hilltop towns of Gordes, Rousillon, Goult, Bonnieux or Menerbes. (we stumbled across several others too) or up to the mountains of the Luberon or Vaucluse. A day out in Avignon is a must and we also hiked the 'Mur de la Peste' in the Vaucluse with far-reaching views to Mount Ventoux.
All in all, a wonderful property in a wonderful destination for a week's holiday.
We had a lovely time in this wonderful place and cottage. Thank you to Marie-Thérèse who gave us a warm welcome and was there for any question. The place is equipped with all what you need and it is very quite and a ideal location to explore the area around it. Thank you for this great time we had.
