We have four beautiful guest bedrooms. Decorated in a rustic minimalist style, offering comfortable accommodation with modern en-suite bathrooms.



Breakfast is served! A light continental breakfast of croissant or chocolatine, freshly ground coffee or tea. Supplement of 7,5€ per person, please book in advance.

Just because you go into the countryside, doesn't have to mean you are blocked out.



La Tourette is surrounded by private land which guests are welcome to explore. A chemin leads through the woodlands to a Roman Chapel, and beyond there are walks to explore amongst the vine yards and surrounding hills.

Hands down our greatest airbnb experiences to date. Not sure what we were more impressed with, the incredible home or the kindest most interesting hosts imaginable. Gilles and Maya somehow strike the perfect balance of being incredibly hospitable, welcoming, conversational and engaging while also making you feel like you have all the space, tranquility and alone time you could need to enjoy their beautiful home. If a morning soak in the azure blue pool with paved travertine surrounds, set in the ruins of an old French stone barn and overlooking the surrounding woodlands isn't your cup of tea then this probably isn't the spot for you. Just hoping to get back to this magical part of the world again soon, before its impossible to snag a booking.
