Introduction

La Bastide des Lumières


'La Bastide des Lumières' is a stunningly beautiful Provençal-style property that sits in a very private, elevated position overlooking a sea of vineyards and the tranquil Vallée de la Cèze.

The 2½ acre estate comprises a simply outstanding, private pool area with huge pool of 20m x 7m and extensive sun terraces. Lovely grassed garden with olive trees, lavender groves and palm tree, many private terraces.

The charming courtyard has a fountain centre piece with Mediterranean plants, flowers and trees.

Private gym with large range of exercise machines and equipment.

South-facing, with unforgettable views over the vineyards and countryside, the property itself would grace the cover of any Provençal style and decoration magazine.

Superb living accommodation with traditional, antique and contemporary decoration and furnishings. Large farmhouse kitchen. Elegant, double aspect living room with extensive library, two separate sitting areas and French-windows opening to the garden and terraces.

Six bright and spacious bedrooms with extended views; all with private, ensuite bathrooms; floors throughout are of beautiful limestone cut in large blocks.

Exterior terraces offer private space for relaxing or dining. A vine covered pergola shades a delightful terrace, ideal for alfresco breakfasts or an intimate lunch.

Conversely, the courtyard features a wonderful, covered terrace for summer family living; large sitting area with comfortable conservatory furniture and grand dining table for those typical long-lasting, late evening family dinners.

All amenities are in nearby Goudargues (5 minutes) including shops, restaurants and traditional market.

Great location from which to discover this beautiful region.

Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

I am just now returning home from my European travels and want to thank you again for everything that made our stay in La Bastide des Lumières so special. Adelaide was WONDERFUL and having someone to shop and prepare dinner for our group made it possible for everyone to enjoy biking, exploring, or just taking in the view from the pool. Not only was her cooking superb but she was engaging and accommodating and all hands give her the highest praise. I am hopeful that it will be fewer than ten years before a return visit to your very special property is possible. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Just back from a terrific break. We must let you know how happy the family was with your property. It is a really lovely house, made all the better because it is so obviously lived in and therefore has a really good feel to it. The facilities were superb – the swimming pool fantastic, the rooms as good as you could wish for (particularly our 55 sqm bedroom!), and the layout between the kitchen and shaded eating area just right. The fridges, fortunately, could cope quite happily with enormous quantities of food and the rather large amount of beer and wine that was consumed; and the washing machine was excellent. We were extremely lucky with the weather, and all things together contributed to a wonderful family get-together.
