Guesthouse in Provence

Vue du parc.

La Royante is a charming Bed and Breakast in a private country manor ideally located between Cassis, Aix and Marseille. The 18th century “bastide” and its gothic chapel lie in a vast garden with a swimming pool and an olive grove. The park itself rests in a peaceful valley surrounded by ageless pine trees.

La piscine et l'oliveraie.

The choice is yours : listening to the soothing pitter-patter of the fountain and the song of the cicadas; relaxing by the pool; admiring the wind over the olive grove; succumbing to the fragrances of lavender and rosemary; meditating in the coolness of the chapel; indulging a provençal breakfast under the shade of a fig tree; escaping to the Calanques (Fjords) of Cassis; burrowing through antique shops in Aix; hiking in the hills on the footsteps of Marcel Pagnol… You’re out of time, but so deeply in Provence.

Le jardin de la maison.

La Royante features an exclusive choice of three charming guest rooms, as well as a kitchen and guest room at the guests' disposal. Sophie, back to France after 10 years in Asia, will share with you her passion for the region and help you discover its hidden treasures.
