Martinez bastide is in a quiet hameau on top of a steep hill. It is an ideal retreat for relaxing and getting away from it all. The house is well equipped and comfortable with excellent outdoor areas that enjoy a breathtaking view.

We really loved our recent stay at Martine's bastide in the Cevennes. The photos really don't do it justice, as there are dozens of interesting rooms and works of art to discover! Despite the cool autumn weather, we really loved watching the sun set from (note: one of several!) t…

HI Katie, It was great having you at la Bastide d'Esparon. The fall is a beautiful season there, and the leaves on the hills and the high plateaux which you can see from the different terrasses are indeed wonderful. I envy you and wish I could have been there. Come back whenever you want. And if you are on (Hidden by Airbnb) , don't hesitate to post photos with the hashtag: #BastideEsparon

Martine has described the house perfectly. It is an old, large and rustic stone house situated in a small Hamlet high in the Cevennes; just perfect for finding peace and tranquility from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The only neighbours we saw were the birds and some local…

Perched high above the valley in an incredibly atmospheric hamlet, the Great Old Bastide is an intriguing building that has been turned into a fantastic home. With a seemingly endless choice of rooms, nooks, terraces and unexpected views to explore, it would be easy to never l…

Dan, you were a fantastic guest and you are welcome back whenever you want. I am so moved by your poetic description which captures so well the spirit of La Bastide. I bet you are a writer.. please keep me in touch if some of your poetry is published.

We very much enjoyed our time at Martine's house in Esparon. The house and village were extremely peaceful and we felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. It was wonderful spending time in the outdoor terraces, eating our meals or reading books. The surrounding natural environmen…

You were great guests. You relaxed enjoying the sceneries and wines from the region, taking time to clean your laundry and let it dry in the sun whilst reading a book and also you took great hikes and was in the Cirques de Navacelles and swimming in the rivers... a perfect combination.

What an amazing beautiful haven of tranquility on top of the world! Martine was so accommodating of our short last minute stay and her housekeepers aicha and samir were so kind. Wish we could have stayed longer and we can't wait to return.

Lindsey and Al, you are both beyond charming . It is wonderful that you could both spend a few days after your wedding at La Bastide d'Esparon and that you found it super romantic and special. Al, Thanks for watering my plants, you are a landscape designer and horticulturist in Melbourne, I greatly appreciated that. I was so pleased he enjoyed the flower and plant arrangements on my 2 terraces and in the private courtyard and garden at the entrance of the house. I was also happy he carefully watered the planted bushes. Lindsey and Al decided to come at the last minute, and they were very organized with e mail as well as cell phone communication.They also shared their emotion to me which felt really nice in e mails: "The sky is changing by the minute and we are inspired to draw and paint. We feel so special being here. Thank you for opening your house to people like us who have never been or seen this kind of beauty in nature. And your home is also impeccably stylish. We cannot stop smiling in delight. Thanks for arranging at such short notice. Hope you get to enjoy some more of your spectacular home this summer. All the best, Lindsey" ' Hi Martine, thank you so much for hosting us at your beautiful home. We had a wonderful and relaxing time here. We hope to return at some point in the future. Regards Al" I am always grateful when guests like you really appreciate the house as much as I do, and when they want to come back. And you left La Bastide d'Esparon immaculate. July 2014
