“If I could only stay in one place for the rest of my life, it would be here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2010

There is no other way to describe this place than my ultimate relaxing holiday location. Bastide Louise is a little oasis of beauty and calm set on the edge of St Paul de Vence. it has a stunning garden and pool, individually decorated rooms in gorgeous neutral provence style and scrumptious breakfasts. The hosts Tine and Ove could not be more helpful and friendly and I defy ANYONE not to love this place. Myself and my husband have stayed here on numberous occasions and keep on going back.... we got married in St Paul de Vence in May 2010, and our friends who stayed at Bastide Louise wedding are already in the process of arranging a reunion there! My only criticism is simply that I always have to leave.........

I would like to keep Bastide Louise a secret, but feel inclined to let people know JUST how lovely it is.
From their number 1 top fan, Louise

We found this place by accident on the web & were really impressed by the look of it, we read some reviews that were mixed but liked the look of it - we were so so so glad we stayed there. All coments about the couple being not so friendly & no towels......must have stayed at a different place. Couple were lovely, breakfast on the garden table was a special way to start the day & our hosts could not have been more helpful the whole experince was amazing, just as good as the website makes it looked. I would love to go back but would stay a few more days next time

My boyfriend and I attempted to stay at this seemingly nice looking B&B. We were very excited and contacted the owners for reservations. Everything went smoothly up until reading the previous reviews (which stated the place did not offer air conditioning nor towels), we politely asked the owner what amenities are available in order to prepare for our stay in case we need to bring our own things. She rudely answered us that we should go look for a hotel rather than a B&B since what we were asking for are not usually provided in B&Bs.....Towels???
She rudely cancelled our reservation and suggested we go look for another place?! we did'nt even get the chance to meet this lovely host....

Bastide Louise is a genuine, exclusive and different hotel experience. The two friendly hosts have turned their mansion into a very laid-back and unique accommodation. The site is located the hill opposite St. Paul de Vence, which is just a short walk away.

During the Cannes Film Festival I spent 2 days in their "La Cave" suite which is spacious and cool even without aircon. It's pricey but worth it if you want to pamper yourself. There's no restaurant at the premises, but they serve breakfast. I had trouble finding the place, though. No signs anywhere, and the entrance is tricky to find by car so do your map homework before you arrive.

All in all a good experience with a private, homey feel.

We stayed in the room named Le cave, which is more like a mini suite than just a room. Very comfortable with a modern shower room. The owners were exceedingly friendly and welcoming right from the start. They clearly live there, as its their home, and are around most of the time, but very much in the background. When we arrived, we suggested a honesty bar, just to save them from having to get us a beer or glass of wine when we wanted one. This worked a treat and the prices were not rip off, plus it was good quality as were the breakfasts. No full English here thank god!. You really do feel that the place is your home, as we sat by the pool for most of the days, in fact we were there for hours and did not feel as though we were intruding. I can see where the other negative reviews could possibly have been formed, but I think their expectations were more 5* hotel with 5* service for 3* prices. The owners are just sooo laid back and friendly and clearly enjoyed having people around that we had a great time. This also applied to the other three couples who were staying at the same time. It's their first year in business and were certainly going back. In fact, it's the perfect place to stay and not expensive for the standard of accommodation and lifestyle, all this just a short walk to the Village. Only negative comment is that a few more sun loungers could be placed around the pool, for I would hate to stay with a bunch of Germans at the same time, nes pa! Overall rating : One of the better places we have stayed down there and well worth going. Enchanting gardens and perfect pool with great views down to the sea, and big enough to loose yourself with other guests around.

  • Liked — Ambiance and style and great location
  • Disliked — lack of sun beds but theres plenty of lawn to lounge on.
