Things to do

-Outdoor recreation. La Bastide-des-Jourdans is within the Luberon Natural Regional Park, which encompasses a mountainous landscape covered in pine woodland, and preserving lots of architectural heritage. Discover old chateaux and stone chapels along twisting hilly paths. If you’re up for some golf then Luberon’s own club is close by, with a demanding mountain course in a classic Provençal landscape.

-Picturesque villages. La Bastide-des-Jourdans is a handsome old village, in a region that is rich in 14th Century architecture and home to countless “perched” mountain villages. The older part of La Bastide-des-Jourdans is protected by original medieval walls, and boasts historic gates, a castle and a couple of beautiful churches. The nearby town of Manosque is also from the 1300s and has two imposing medieval gates leading to an old centre of typical Provençal houses and hidden squares.

-Gorges du Verdon. France’s version of the Grand Canyon, the Verdon Gorge has been carved by the eponymous river over millions of years, creating a truly arresting landscape. At points the ravine reaches depths of more than 700 metres, and people flock to the canyon for walking and climbing trips. It’s also possible to kayak or raft along the river with local adventure tourism companies.

-Coast. Another natural wonder within a comfortable drive of La Bastide-des-Jourdans can be found just southeast of Marseille. The Calanques form a remarkable coastal landscape of fjords, promontories, rocky outcrops and cliffs that can be experienced on foot or by boat. If it’s beachtime you want then you could try the small but perfectly formed beach at Cassis, backed by rugged cliffs and with seductive clear waters.

-Cuisine. Local cuisine draws on the freshest seasonal produce. The olive oil cultivated in this region has AOC protection, while the nearby town of Apt is well-known for the high quality of its cherries in summer, which have been used to make candied fruits with artisan techniques for many centuries. The largest local market is in Manosque on Saturdays, and here you get your hands on some sublime fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses, olive oil and wines.

Weather in La Bastide-des-Jourdans

La Bastide-des-Jourdans holiday rentals are in a Mediterranean Climate zone. Thanks to the mountainous setting, the village also avoids the famous Mistral wind that blows from north to south.

Winters are generally mild, but can be chilly on certain days in December and January. Temperatures drop just below freezing at night, and rise to eight or nine degrees by day.

Travel to La Bastide-des-Jourdans

Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) is the destination to use if you want to get to your holiday home in La Bastide-des-Jourdans from Britain.

Fantastic location for hiking, dog walking and exploring Provence!

4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Hélène et Thierry place in Le Bastide de Jourdan. It ticked all the boxes for us in terms of location and size - a wonderful enclosed garden the dog could enjoy, a covered pool, BBQ. The village itself was charming. We'd walk to the bakery most days and then did plenty of hikes nearby. We also explored Bonniuex, Lacoste, Colorado Provencal, Aix en Provence all easily reachable by car. Hélène et Thierry ended up staying in the small converted house on site which wasn't a problem for us but we weren't told about this beforehand nor the cleaning which was asked for in cash for when we departed. We ended up getting up early and cleaning ourselves as there had only been the two us and it was no problem. Would recommend travelers check these details with the owners beforehand to avoid any complications. A great place and would definitely recommend.

Beautiful House and grounds with plenty of space. Nice welcome This has been one of those memorable holidays The house was well equipped and the indoor and outdoor games added much pleasure to the holiday. The pool was frequented daily by most Nine of our family stayed and we all agreed that the atmosphere and surroundings where just what we all needed to enjoy and come back refreshed. We especially enjoyed eating outside, using the barbecue and obtaining the food from the markets and local shops especially the boulangerie
