Bastide Avellanne

Besse Sur Isole, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

Bastide Avellanne presents a bespoke, sustainable retreat home for individual activity holidays and group retreats.

Whether you book a room, an apartment or the whole property for exclusive use, you will always find a friendly welcome with a personalised service and the utmost respect for your privacy. Our large indoor and outdoor spaces allow every guest to experience relaxation and comfort, set in beautiful, natural surroundings.

Charming all year round

A stay at Bastide Avellanne is always charming, no matterwhat season. In summer the thick stone walls and air conditioning protect from the heat, and time is mostly spent outdoors where you can choose between the pergola and the hammock, enjoying the breeze under our centuries old oaks. Choose from activities such as a swim in the pool or a game of tennis, relax with a glass of pastis while playing petanque or take a walk through the vineyards and mediterranean maquis trees. Alternatively in the cooler seasons, relax with a glass of wine on the old leather sofas next to the enormous chimney.

The Food

Our organic cuisine produces sustainable pleasure for all senses and our main ingredient is based on seasonal vegetables. Only on special request (in advance) we serve meat or fish dishes. Food is the most important aspect to make you feel home and cared for. Therefore, we do everything in house and all the products are sourced locally from our farmers producing ecological food and wine.

The Rooms

The exposed stone structure of the Bastide is set against the pastel colours of the walls and the furnishings. Every bedroom has a chimney in stone, provencal furniture and fabrics. The varying height of the ceilings and ancient beams create a unique balance between past and present in each of our spaces.

Group Spaces

The Bastide is the ideal location for retreats and seminars. Our spacious air conditioned yoga studio, also to be converted to a meeting room, complete with large windows overlooking the garden, can be adapted to your needs. We also have a Yoga Shala overlooking the vineyards and with the trees as a natural shadow.


We are fortunate to be located so remotely and at the same time so close to Cote d’Azur and Provence´s most desirable destinations such as Cannes, St Tropez, Gorges du Verdon, Cotinac, and Aix. It’s possible to book any kind of activities like massage treatments, guided tours, hikes, tennis and yoga lessons, and VTT bike rentals.

The team behind the Bastide is an international bunch of positive, well-travelled and experienced hoteliers. We all have completely different backgrounds but here we come together like a big family under the Bastides roof.
