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.
