An update from the Bastide team

Dear Guests and Friends,

As you all know, the French government has issued a country-wide lock-down. Therefore Bastide Avellanne is closed and no retreats are held, at least until the beginning of June.  We believe that this is a time for rest and patience, a time that teaches us to stay in the present moment and embrace what is, with faith. It is also a time for personal responsibility, and only by respecting the directives, will we be able to reduce the spread of the virus.

All our team is staying healthy and safe, and we’re very much looking forward to be able to welcome guests again soon. In the meantime, if you are impacted by the situation and you have a retreat booked with us, we will do our best to accommodate you at a later date, and find the best arrangement for you.

Please get in touch with us directly at

Warmest wishes from our little nook in Provence
