Aïna : "Life " in Malagasy

This name stands out for itself for this charming gîte and bed and breakfast located in the Grasse region.
Located in the heart of a century-old olive grove opening onto the swimming pool and surrounded by a bright, bucolic and enchanting garden , with the air of Tuscany, Provence and England, a haven of peace where only the song of the cicadas breaks the silence places.

The Bastide Aïna is in itself the representation of the personal history of its owner: a clever mix of cultures and origins.

La Bastide is the result of a project matured over 20 years: furniture and decorative objects were acquired over the years. Originally from Normandy, its owner moved to the South of France in 2008, then in 2020, she purchased the Bastide: her potential was revealed and the decoration was inspired by her soul.

La Bastide Aïna is a place where the history of yesterday and today meet.
The land formerly belonged to the Little Sisters of the Poor who welcomed destitute and isolated people.
The Count of Noailles , famous patron of the 20th century and member of the Royal Horticultural Society , acquired it in 1969 and built the Bastide there. He designed the gardens there with English subtleties and Italianate reminiscences. His love for art and gardens left an indelible mark on the Bastide.

Long a Swedish family house, since 2021 the Bastide has been a place of meeting, sharing, serenity, joy, relaxation and well-being .

Art plays an important role: that of the table, that of painting. Many paintings by local artists are exhibited there.

The soul of the Bastide envelops you in a cocoon of elegance, sobriety and softness.

Today "Bastide Aïna", yesterday "Le Refuge", La Bastide was and remains the refuge of the mind and the heart.

Here, happiness is homemade.
