A concierge entirely dedicated to their guests

At La Bastide, each client is unique, explains Elio, head concierge at Airelles Gordes. Devotees of their region, the luxury concierges at La Bastide’ dearest wish is to share their passion for the Luberon with you. Whether you are an active person or prefer a more leisurely stay, whether you are with your family or travelling as a couple, there are plenty of bespoke activities to enjoy around La Bastide.

Entirely at the service of their guests, the concierge team at La Bastide will take time to learn about and understand your tastes, before recommending experiences personalised just for you.

An expert Luberon concierge

Unmissable excursions include the local villages and their traditional Provencal markets. Every day Elio and his team can advise you of the best markets to explore. And to make the trip even more fun, why not go by electric bike? The concierge team knows every little corner of the Luberon and, if you like, can arrange a picnic basket and tell you about the best shady spots to stop!

For a cultural visit, head to Sénanque Abbey, an incredible Cistercian abbey and historic monument, ideally located to look out over the flowering lavender fields. The traditional Provencal villages of Ménerbes, Lacoste and Bonnieux with their history-filled lanes are also close by. Do not miss Roussillon, also known as the ‘Colorado of Provence’ because of its unique ochre-coloured cliffs. Depending on how much time you would like to spend in each of the villages, and according to what you would like to do, Elio and his team can suggest itineraries on foot, by car, or by electric bike.

Bespoke experiences for all tastes

Families can enjoy kayaking down the Sorgue, trying out a high-ropes course or enjoying the view over Provence from a hot-air balloon. Early in the morning, a 4x4 will take you to a field where you will watch the balloon inflate, and then ascend into the sky to fly high over Gordes and the Luberon valley. As you take off, adults can heighten their emotions by sipping champagne, and children will be delighted with their certificate of a balloon flight!

For foodies, the expert Luberon concierge can organise an introduction to truffle hunting, or a private Provencal cuisine cookery class. Just a few steps away, famous vineyards will open their gates for you to explore for a few hours or a day, with or without a guide. It will be a pleasure for La Bastide’s luxury concierge team to design a tailor-made itinerary for you in the Luberon.

Finally, do not forget to ask Elio about his best-kept secret, a chance to stargaze from a former bunker, 45 minutes away from La Bastide…but ssshhh! Don’t tell anyone!
