The Property:

La Bastide des Amandiers is in the foothills of the Costes range and a short drive from the charming village of Rognes, with its small shops and its pretty Wednesday morning market. Halfway between Aix-en-Provence and the famous towns of the Luberon Valley, the location is ideal for discovering beautiful Provence or enjoying a siesta in the shade lulled by the song of the cicadas.

The large swimming pool is like a pond, and the garden is Provencal with native plants, including roughly 600 lavenders, 100 olive trees, an orchard and a few grapevines. In addition, the owners are always happy to share fresh eggs from their chickens.

This property sits on the edge of the Luberon Valley, a region known for its magnificent Provencal villages such as Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Gordes, and Roussillon. Discover the owners’ favourite addresses: restaurants, vineyards, villages, producers, and local creators. Within an hour’s drive one hour, you can visit the pretty seaside town of Cassis and its famous calanques, the Camargue, the Alpilles and its olive groves, the Gorges de Verdon, or the Sault plateau lavender fields. Closer to home are the Provencal Colorado, Avignon, the Palace of the Popes, and the famous city of Aix-en-Provence.

Ideal for:

Couples or groups of friends

Minimum stay:

June until the end of September – One (1) week
April, May and October – Four (4) nights
March and November – Three (3) nights


Apartment rental rates depend on the time of the year and availability.


All the bedrooms are air-conditioned, but the living spaces are not. However, the home’s thick walls and shutters (closed during the hottest hours) keep the room fresh even in the middle of the Provencal summer.

Since the property has three apartments (gîtes), the owners welcome only couples without children to maintain its relaxing serenity.

The swimming pool is shared, but no deckchairs are set up around it to preserve everyone’s private space.

What their guests say:

La Bastide des Amandiers is a “un coin de paradis,” a corner of paradise ideally situated between Aix-en-Provence and the beautiful Luberon region of Provence. The property is breathtaking and perfectly manicured. Our maisonette was well-decorated, super clean and a great place to spend a month in Provence. Guylaine went out of her way to recommend restaurants, shops, activities and some of her own favourite places, such as hiking trails, shopping and other adventures. I highly recommend La Bastide des Amandiers for a weekend, a week’s vacation or longer, as it is a peaceful sanctuary and home base that will allow you to discover Provence. It is a beautiful and relaxing location that truly represents the best of Provence. Guylaine shares her enthusiasm for the Luberon and the beauty of the landscape and countryside and was always to provide advice during our stay. 5 Stars! ~ Tasha

What a beautiful oasis in Provence! The stay was a great value for the detail and attention, and care this Airbnb clearly has from its owners. They’ve designed each suite to be very private and quiet, so note this when booking it’s a place for relaxation and quiet. The apartment itself is beautiful, so quintessentially France, and has a lovely view of the orchard. Would love to stay again! Great location nearby to Luberon and also many wineries. ~Melissa
