Bastide Avellanne – Besse-sur-Issole

Bastide Avellanne is a charming fortified Provencal demure dating back to 17th century. Totally refurbished in 2011 it welcomes you with spacious light rooms in country style, all with modern en-suite bathrooms and independent apartments with every comfort.

In the Bastide you will find a vast air conditioned lounge with old leather sofas, a stone chimney, exposed beams and a bar, a dining room in the veranda overlooking the garden and a workshop-come-meeting room close to the pool.
Surrounded by vineyards Bastide Avellanne is set in a private park of 3 hectares, where the colours of the olive trees and centuries old oaks blend with the perfumes of lavender and rosemary, creating a small mediterranean paradise in where you will find a heated swimming pool and summer bar, hydromassage pool, tennis and petanque courts.

Bastide Avellanne is the ideal location to visit Provence. Situated only 30 minutes from the sea and from the Cote D’Azur between Cannes, St Tropez and Hyeres, (from where the ferry to the nearby Islands of Porquerolles, Portcros and Levant departs) with its hundreds of kilometers of white beaches, rocky capes and wild bays is considered the most beautiful coastline of France. It is also close to the National Park of Gorges de Verdon and to the most picturesque Provencal villages and towns like Bormes les Mimosas, Thoronet with the 11th century Abbey, Aix en Provence, Le Baux de Provence, St Remy and Nice with its international airport.

Our bed and breakfasts

The Accommodation is in 5 bedrooms with ensuite and self catered apartments. The exposed stone harmonises with the pastel colours of the walls and the furnishings. The varying height of the ceilings and the ancient beams give all the spaces an equilibrium between past and present. In every bedroom a chimney in stone, provencal furniture and fabrics. Attention to detail, from the bedding to the grand soft towels signed Bastide Avellanne.

Whether you book a room, an apartment or the whole property for exclusive use you will find a friendly welcome, personalised service and respect for your privacy. The large internal and external spaces allow every guest an experience of relaxation and comfort in beautiful natural surroundings.
