    Our opinion

    Bastide du Calalou is a charming and friendly property close to arguably the most magnificent lake in Europe.

    Hotel description

    The charming property of the Bastide du Calalou enjoys an enviable location, nestled in inland Provence in the natural regional park of Verdon, but within easy reach of the Provencal coast and this region`s rugged interior. The friendly Vandevyver family will ensure that your stay here is relaxing and comfortable, and can help organise excursions to local places of interest. The roomsof the Bastide du Calalou are simply decorated in a homely style with period furnishings. They benefit from beautiful views across the Var countryside or a small terrace overlooking the verdant, aromatic garden and olive trees (please state your choice at time of booking). There is a spacious bar and a comfy lounge where you can play chess, read or simply relax. The restaurant specialises in regional cuisine and the half board menu changes daily. There is also a swimming pool and tennis court within the grounds. The Bastide du Calalou is an ideal base from which you can explore some of the very best of inland Provence; the stunning Sainte Croix lake and the wild beauty of the Gorges du Verdon (known as the Grand Canyon of Europe) are less than 30 minutes` drive away, and must be seen to be truly appreciated. The Bastide du Calalou is a hotel in pretty location where you can unwind in the serenity of nature and enjoy friendly, welcoming service.
