La Bastide du Paon Bleu is just what you imagine when looking for a villa holiday in the South of France. Sleeping a family of 10, this is a perfect option for large families or travelling with friends, and for all ages from babies through to teens. The traditional Provence-style exterior, modern interior (including 5 bedrooms), an abundance of land to roam (20 acres in fact), an outdoor pool and the perfect location in which to experience the best of what this beautiful region of France has to offer.
Lively Aix-en-Provence is the nearest city (a 40-minute drive away), what is regarded as 'one of France's most beautiful villages', Lourmarin, is nearby and also a variety of family attractions, including a theme park and waterpark. But if you are looking to enjoy a slower pace of life, stick to the local villages where you can shop for local produce with their traditional shops and weekly markets, and enjoy the French way of life.
We do recommend you hire a car if you book to stay at La Bastide du Paon Bleu in order to enjoy and explore the region, however, the villa itself offers so much you may not want to head out for too long, especially in the height of summer. There is plenty of space both inside and out, a heated outdoor pool, sporting equipment and games plus added luxuries such as a Jacuzzi and home cinema. There are a selection of bikes for you to use, a play area for kids which includes a sandpit and trampoline, and for a real nod to the rural way of life, there are peacocks and a collection of chickens so you can collect fresh eggs each morning.
