Bastide des Muriers, an 18th century farmhouse that was recently and completely renovated to provide accommodation of exceptional quality, is a charming luxury villa just five minutes drive from the popular Provencal village of Bonnieux. Set amidst 27 acres of lavender fields and open plains, the villa is one of the leading contemporary estates in the region and is ideally located for visiting many of the Luberon's famous and historic sites. The extensive grounds are home to a large 18 x 5m private heated swimming pool and several outdoor dining and lounge areas and the endless fields of aromatic lavender surrounding the beautiful gardens provide an incredible fragrance throughout the summer, making Bastide des Muriers the ideal luxury retreat.
The interiors are cosy and traditional with a touch of modern luxury and there is an air cooling system throughout. All six bedrooms are comfortable and spacious and the master bedroom is accessed separately by a stairway off the kitchen providing guests with total independence and privacy. Four of the bedrooms conveniently have ensuite bathrooms and two have twin beds, making this an ideal family property.
The ample toys, games and activities on offer at the villa ensure hours of entertainment and independent play for the children, music to the ears of many parents looking for uninterrupted quiet time relaxing in the sun. The villa's large, luxurious kitchen is excellently equipped and offers everything for both the serious chef and family cooking, with four ovens, two fridges, coffee machines and an island for easy meal preparation. Large patio doors open onto the front terrace and dining areas, some shaded, where guests can enjoy their meals at any time of the day whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
