A sweet and generous breakfast will be offered to you on the terrace facing the swimming pool or near the pool house during the summer months. It will be served in our lounge in low season.
For the pleasure of all, we promote local and organic products, as well as homemade French specialties. You can taste cakes, pastries and homemade jams, without forgetting to savor the fresh fruit, picked in the orchard according to the season (cherries, figs, nuts, plums, strawberries, grapes…) or buy directly from the farm just next to the Country house.
We are very sensitive to respect for the environment. We recycle and limit packaging as much as possible. We buy many organic products in delicatessens without packaging and mainly made in the region.
Relax by the pool
An azure blue swimming pool of 11m x 4m heated naturally by the rays of the sun, will allow you to observe the hills of Saint Côme and the many essences of Mediterranean trees.
Many terraces will allow you to bask in the sun or in the shade of the pool house.
A library will be at your disposal in the pool house.
The pétanque court
In the shade of the cherry tree and surrounded by the vines, you can enjoy a moment of relaxation on the petanque ground. We put balls at your disposal.
We are lucky to live in a green setting where century-old trees, fauna and flora contribute to the charm of the place. We are more than sensitive to respect for the environment and try to multiply small gestures to preserve the planet.
Our daily actions…
We mainly buy local products from local know-how or manufacturing:
Our good ultra-fresh eggs come directly from Nicolas, in love with his hens at Le Castellet
The fruits of Cécile & Fred come from the White Farm a few meters from the Bastide… you will pass in front of the orchard of peaches and nectarines, melons and watermelons every morning
You can taste the fruits of our orchard according to the season: cherries, white figs, grapes
Lavender honey comes from the oratory honey house in Le Castellet, to be discovered on site or at the Provençal market in St Cyr on Sunday mornings
Natural dishwashing liquid and detergent are produced in Aubagne, and purchased by the liter in containers that we bring to limit packaging
Organic coffee from fair trade
Succulent biodynamic Bandol wines from la Bbastide Blanche or Chateau Canadel
The jams are all homemade… with love
The shower gels offered in the rooms are natural and in eco-packaging… when our stocks are exhausted, we will switch to a refillable pump bottle… we have already fallen in love with a verbena shower gel produced in La Ciotat
Waste is sorted and/or taken to the recycling center
Weeds are pulled by hand… with patience 🙂
The trees are only treated with natural products (tree white, Bordeaux mixture, sulphur, black soap or clay, etc.)
We limit the use of air conditioning as long as necessary… We would be grateful if you could not leave the windows open when they are on and turn them off when you go out for a walk or by the swimming pool.
We have installed nesting boxes for birds, insects and bats… small pipistrelles eat up to 3000 mosquitoes per night
We have developed an electronic welcome booklet to guide you in the visits and the best restaurants in the region
The furniture that creates the atmosphere of the Bastide is found, restored, painted and patinated in my workshop that I share with you during the season. All my paints and patinas are made in my workshop with natural ingredients (lime, casein, pigments, beeswax…)
