There are larger bedrooms than this one in the Bastide de l'Arc, but this one is the most coveted. With its very spacious bathroom (below) and light, natural colours, the atmosphere is serene and tranquil. Features air conditioning, a flatscreen TV, a separate toilet and a large wardrobe.
The dining room is located on the south-west corner of the house, so it is very bright at all times of day. Why not try the services of a private chef for the ultimate Provençal culinary experience? Just ask us for recommendations.
For those who need to stay in touch with friends and family or - god forbid - have to work during their stay at the Bastide de l'Arc, there is an office with a writing desk and a broadband internet connection, which reaches most of the house via wifi.
The beds in this ensuite twin room can be pushed together to make a 180 cm bed. The room is fitted with air conditioning and a flatscreen TV and looks out over the valley and the Montagne Sainte Victoire.
On the second floor, to the right, with a view over the pool and gardens, is the first bedroom, equipped with air conditioning, a 180 cm bed and a flatscreen TV. Each bedroom in Bastide de l'Arc has an ensuite bathroom - this one contains a bathtub and a separate toilet.
These two rooms, located under the vast front terrace, share a large bathroom between them. Both rooms are air-conditioned and have 180 cm beds and can be accessed separately - the red room has an indoor staircase leading to the house and the grey one leads straight outside. Please note that these two photos were shot by the owner with a fisheye lens, making the rooms appear larger than in reality.
Not only does the room above feature the usual wall-mounted air conditioning unit, flatscreen TV and 180 cm bed, it also has a decorative fireplace and a balcony looking out over the gardens. Its ensuite bathroom (photos to come soon) is designed with pink marble, featuring a bathtub as well as a toilet.
Also on the top floor, commanding views over the Arc valley and the Montagne Sainte Victoire, this small bedroom has a 140 cm bed, which would be considered somewhat small for a double bed by American standards. Its bathroom is decorated with nice pink hues.
This twin bedroom would be ideal for children or teens but would also be perfectly suited to two adults. There is of course air conditioning, a flatscreen TV and an ensuite bathroom fitted with an Italian shower. The scene pictured below is actually contained within the room itself, with the shower and toilet facilities in a separate room together.
15 miles from beautiful Aix-en-Provence, with breathtaking views over the Vallée de l'Arc and the Sainte Victoire mountain from its dominant position as a hill-side wine-making domain, Bastide de l'Arc is a wonderfully peaceful retreat that can accommodate up to 20 people in its 10 air-conditioned bedrooms, each also fitted with its own bathroom and a flatscreen TV.
The large 14 x 6.5 m pool is just next to the house, ideal for the entire group to relax together, sipping on a bottle of rosé wine produced and bottled on site at the Domaine. That's not all - the pool is heated, so outdoor living at the Bastide de l'Arc is glorious almost all year. The rigid cover will grant you peace of mind when kids are left to themselves in the garden.
Above is the south-facing facade of the property. You can just see the pool-house to the left. There is a reception/banquet hall available just next to the Bastide for weddings or other large events, which of course remains unoccupied during your stay at the Bastide. Please enquire about rates for weddings. The reception hall has a capacity to hold 250 people seated.
