La Bastide des Templiers in Bras/Provence

Set in spectacular scenery of *Green Provence*, halfway between the Verdon Gorge and the French Riviera, our family-run countryside guesthouse invites you to a haven of tranquillity and relaxation amidst natural splendour. Enjoy home from home comfort at a sumptuous Provencal manor providing stylish, comfortable self-contained studio apartments and charming bed and breakfast lodgings. In the shade of century-old pine and oak trees at the gates of a picturesque village, you will be lulled by the cicadas and enchanted by the scents of the Garrigue. A perfect romantic get away from life's hustle and bustle…

Our studios are one-room holiday rentals of 30 m2 for a stay in full self-dependence. Each sleeps two adults (plus one or two children if required) and offers a combined living and rest area including double bed, sofa bed, separate sitting area, private bathroom and fully fitted kitchenette. The studios are carefully decorated and feature rustic teak wood furniture. Exposed wooden ceiling beams, terracotta tiled floors and pastel-coloured walls create a cosy Mediterranean atmosphere, which will instantly make you feel comfortable. Situated on the upper floor, the apartments have a lovely view of the garden and sylvan environs. Bookings include bed linen and towels. Beds will be made up for you upon arrival.

Guest comforts in the common areas of our house include a 4 x 8 m outdoor pool amidst colourful Mediterranean gardens, a wellness oasis with hot tub and massage services, a sun terrace with outdoor furniture for taking your meals or unwind, and a guest lounge with sat-TV, DVD player, computer, library and minibar. Free WIFI Internet access is available throughout the residence.

Bras is a quaint medieval village, ancient commandry of the Knights Templar, nestling amidst lovely natural landscapes and sylvan surroundings of lushly wooded hills, purling brooks and hidden valleys. A little paradise for all lovers of nature and authenticity. The surroundings offer many picturesque spots for extensive hikes and walking as well as a variety of other activities like biking, climbing, horse riding, canoeing, boating, paragliding, tennis, golf, fishing and many more… And thanks to the central situation of our property in the heart of Provence – the Verdon Gorge and the Mediterranean Sea are only an hour away – we make the perfect base for exploring the South of France.

Comfort, quality and hospitality of our guesthouse are certified by the Green Provence Tourist Council and recommended by numerous accommodation guides. TripAdvisor top-rated.

Please note:

All lodgings are upstairs (about 15 steps) and hence unsuitable for physically disabled travellers.

They have no private TV set but Sat-TV is available in the guest lounge.

We aim to offer a relaxed and peaceful place and therefore accept only children over the age of 13.

Our hilltop property is located about 1.5 km outside the village. The last 300 m of its access road are unpaved and a bit bumpy, making it somewhat difficult for low-slung vehicles.

Location

Bras is a quaint medieval village, idyllically nestled between the lushly wooded hills and mountains of "Green Provence". A little paradise for all lovers of nature and authenticity. Our area provides above all a true hideaway from it all, allowing you to fully relax and unwind when avoiding congested beaches and the madding crowd. In an ever-shrinking world, Green Provence still offers pristine, raw nature at its most beautiful: vast areas of untouched scenery, interrupted only occasionally by small villages deep embedded into forests or perched like aeries on a hilltop. But its beauty comes also from a sublime Mediterranean countryside composed of endless vineyards, lavender fields and olive groves – here you set foot in the garden of the South...

Bras is located in the centre of a triangle formed by the towns of Saint-Maximin, Brignoles and Barjols, a 40 minutes drive from Aix-en-Provence, midway between the breathtaking Verdon gorges and the chic Riviera - the perfect base to tour Provence and visit a maximum of its famous attractions. Currently, Bras has about 2000 inhabitants. They are supplied by a little supermarket, two bakeries, a butcher with catering services, two bars, an excellent restaurant, a creperie, a pizza takeaway, a tobacco and newspaper kiosk, a vintners' cooperative and wine shop, a hairdresser, a cinema and numerous craftsmen. There is also a weekly market offering fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and flowers.

At 300 - 500 m height above sea level, the village and its environs is an Eldorado for nature lovers and ramblers and an ideal place for relaxing days in the great outdoors. Numerous hiking trails and paths take you to the surrounding woods and meadows and to little ponds and creeks. An exceptional and healthy climate both meridional and alpine, about 300 sunny days a year, pleasantly cool nights offering a quiet and sound sleep, splendid landscapes and vast vistas of unspoiled countryside, unique light and scents, picturesque Provencal villages and history-charged medieval vestiges, Mediterranean lifestyle and a load of spots of grandiose art and culture – all that and much more is waiting for you here...
