La Bastide des Amandiers is a restored farmhouse between the historical city of Aix-en-Provence and the Provencal villages of the Luberon Valley. Set in the countryside, a few kilometres from the Rognes town centre, the house has six (6) bedrooms, including two (2) self-contained apartments. The Bastide’s layout provides plenty of privacy and different spaces, making this the perfect place to spend a vacation with extended family or friends.
A large country home, la Bastide des Amandiers has room for 12 people in six (6) air-conditioned bedrooms. Even in the hottest months, the old stone walls and shutters keep the temperature cool inside the house. The bedrooms are spacious, with comfortable furnishings and modern necessities.
Main Floor: On the main floor, a large kitchen and dining room open onto a beautiful terrace shaded by a vine-covered pergola. It’s easy to imagine enjoying delicious meals and long discussions at this sheltered table. The ground floor also has a comfortable living room with an office nook and a bedroom with one queen-sized bed with its ensuite bathroom.

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.

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
