Add on days and non participating partners
Your partner may not be interested in galleries, exhibitions & market shopping,  but will enjoy joining in the eating and socializing.    We can arrange alternative activities to keep him/her busy.  Walking in the hillside, cycling, golf, tennis or simply relaxing!  Activities are arranged on a bespoke basis and charged separately.  Non participating partner’s stay at la Bastide is charged on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at €100 per person per night.

You may like a day or two to relax after a hectic week of tours and activities or you may wish to stay on at our lovely house and have a few days to explore our beautiful area in your own time or simply relax beside the pool.

Prices are based on two people sharing a twin or double, en suite bedroom.   For single occupancy a surcharge will apply to accommodation costs,  i.e. €60 /p/night

Cally Lotz, our artist in residence, will guide you through galleries, markets and exhibitions, sharing her extensive art knowledge  and providing an insight into the diverse and fabulous art on offer.

Owners Trish and Ian are dedicated foodies.  Ian will drive you in comfort, to access the delights on offer.  He tries, as far as possible, to provide a ‘minimum walking’ service, and is on hand to help with shopping bags and treasures collected during your days out.   Ian will share his extensive knowledge of the area and perhaps a few entertaining stories too.  Trish will delight in preparing you a superb dinner from the delicious local fresh produce.
