A little corner of heaven, deep in the heart of Provence Verte


* Reservations for Summer 2023 will be available in October *

La Bastide de Correns is a lovely Provencal country house on a private estate, just outside the very small, very French village of Correns.

it’s a magical place, a haven of peace and tranquility, where the fresh air is scented by wild lavender, rosemary and thyme and the silence interrupted, only by the unique sound of summertime in Provence, the chant of the cicadas.

Located just 10 minutes walk from the village of Correns, a farming village is nestled in a protected valley, where the landscape offers majestic panoramas, lush vegetation, calm waters and the birthplace of a richly preserved biodiversity.  

Correns has a rustic and timeless charm, steeped in centuries of agriculture and viniculture. But this ancient settlement also has a very special place in modern French history.

In 1997 Correns was nominated the '1st Organic Village in France' and our farming community proudly produce organic wine, goats cheese, honey, olives, olive oil, truffles, eggs, chickens and a variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables, all of which are available to purchase directly from the producers, in and around the village. 

Correns is the perfect base from which to explore the Var, a 50 minute car journey takes you; north to Europes largest canyon the Gorge du Verdon, south to the glitz and glamour of the Cote d’Azur and the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence is west, with many more fabulous places to explore all around.

First class! This is truly a fantastic location in which to holiday. On our family holiday of 9 adults and 3 children, we found the house very well equipped, spacious and finished to a very high stand ...
