we spent one week in springtime. our room is one of the best ever. Amazing and very comfortable bathroom with a huge shower. fantastic breakfast, fresh orange juice, fresh fruit salad, a variety of ham and cheese, freshly baked croissants and different types of bread.The owners are very kind, they showed us many itineraries and things to do in the region. We booked massages on place and had a yoga private lesson! We truly recommend this place

Fantastic property / location and the best hosts you could wish for

Bastide Avellanne is set in the quite French countryside. It is a fascinating old building that has been beautifully restored. It is run by a lovely couple and has great facilities such as a tennis court, outdoor pool, bike hire etc.

A Happy Easter

We spent a very enjoyable Easter weekend in this delightfully quiet bastide surrounded by lovely wild contryside. I'm sure we'll be back at a warmer time of year to enjoy the mediterranean climate.

Fantastic location, fantastic hospitality

We were fortunate enough to book the last couple of rooms for a summer week in this beautiful guest house. The decor was really charming, with a very individual style. We loved the home-made breakfast, especially the fresh fruit salad. Our host were very welcoming, and looked after us exceptionally well. We really appreciated the table d'Hotes and the touring tips. The B&B is right in the centre of Var, just 30 minutes drive from the major sites. We will definitely return!
