Pin this Villa
Bastide de Caireval is a large family estate with extensive grounds located between Aix and Lourmarin, at the foot of the Luberon Mountains.

This property is absolutely ideal for large families or groups of friends, and is only two minutes from a wonderfully sweet and lively stone village.

Tucked in amongst the trees of the valley, guests enjoy peaceful privacy in a very central location for exploring Inland Provence. And as an authentic Bastide which has been recently renovated, there is a lovely combination between a true provençal experience and everyday modern comforts.

Sip your morning coffee in the shade of the great Platane trees, enjoy a cool beverage in the sun by the pool, or a rousing game of tennis on the private court beside the olive grove. This is a property fit for enjoying all that Provence has to offer.

If peace and space are what you seek, then Bastide de Caireval is a perfect place for your holiday.

R. The villa has a wonderful layout that allows for many gathering spots. Our group was a total of 16 with a baby and it was nice to never feel crowded in the least. It was lovely to have all the pots and pans, dishes and glassware for our large family dinners. The beds were all comfortable. The pool furniture was delightful.

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. We were thrilled to find such a villa! It included all the items on our wishlist for our large family gathering. As preparations were being made for our trip - the customer service from Only Provence was always kind and helpful. Once in France - we enjoyed the same graciousness. And the villa was even more lovely than the photos. I highly recommend Only Provence.

Bastide de Caireval was an amazing house and a perfect fit for our three families. We certainly had enough space and the 2 refrigerators were an excellent touch and needed.

I would most certainly recommend this home to other families. We also had Chef Ronald meet us in Aix en Provence to select a menu and buy provisions. He came to our home, taught a cooking class, cooked our dinner and used the homes furnishing to provide an amazing in home meal. It was the highlight of our week.

Rognes is a lovely community 20 minutes north of Aix-en-Provence. Located halfway between the sophisticated Roman city of Aix and the entry to the Luberon Mountain region, Rognes has a real country feel with rolling hills, a stone village, and different flowers and fields for every season. The landscape is sumptuous with the vineyards of the 10 surrounding wineries.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
