In a private corner of a Provencal bastide, cocooned by trees and shrubs, is this peaceful poolside studio. If you’re looking for a French hideaway just for two then this could be just the place. The Artist’s Studio is in a spectacular setting of 10 acres in the tranquil grounds of a Provencal bastide. Or if you are a larger group, book the two bedroom cottage and teepee too (sleeps 6), or the ground floor of the bastide (sleeps 4). Asta our resident yoga/zumba instructor is on site at Lei Chambris this year and is able to offer lessons in both yoga and zumba to individuals, family groups and children's yoga.
Nestled amongst the serene foothills of St Barthelemy, surrounded by sprawling hilltops and untouched scenery far as the eye can see, lies the bastide of Lei Chambris, and within its grounds is this delightful studio apartment. Chill out in the hammock with a book, enjoy a game of boules or surrender yourself to a therapeutic massage or yoga class. Surrounded by stunning countryside and charming villages and local markets, this is a lovely property in an idyllic rural setting.
Lei Chambris is a place for relaxation, but if you want to get active then there is plenty to do. There are wonderful walks to suit all levels, taking you through some of the most spectacular countryside in Provence. Maps and guides are available and cycles and mopeds are available for hire. Guided cycle tours also available. There are many activities at the stunning Gorge du Verdon including hang gliding, white water rafting, kayaking, and canoeing, or you can windsurf at the immense Lac de St Croix. Horse riding is available at various local stables, tennis can be played at nearby Villecroze, and there are several golf courses within a 50km radius. At Chateau de Berne you can try your skills at quad biking, or for the more adventurous there is an outdoor assault course. Wine tasting takes place at several of the local chateaux and the beaches of the glamorous Cote d'Azur are just an hour away.
