The Perfect Bastide

I was flipping through a recent issue of Maisons Cote Sud and came across this gorgeous Bastide!
Everything about this charming home speaks to me... the gorgeous shutters, the cream rock, the chalky grays and white washes.  I could go on and on...
The aesthetics are so timeless and simple.  All I can say is, "I want to move in!!!"
I told my husband I want to move to the country and build this home to its exactness.  He just stared at me with BIG eyes thinking,
"Are you ok?"

... I could sit at that table all day

... loving the shower

... funny little sitting area

After looking at these pictures wouldn't you want to build a Bastide in the country?
I know... wishful thinking, but it's fun!  
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!


  1. I'm so with you there. I'll suggest it to Mr. FgH, but probably he will roll his eyes or feel my forehead. :) Happy Weekend! xo Lidy

  2. MMMmmm if only someday. Very stunning.

  4. That is a gorgeous house...I can see why you fell in love with it! I love how restful and calm everything feels in that interior. But my favorite is without a doubt the outdoor courtyard with those wonderful cobblestones, groomed hedges and that amazing tree! That is the yard of my dreams.

    Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend!
    Hope Ava

  5. A splendid house! Thanks for sharing the pictures. @nne

  6. ... and I really like your blog. I'm your next follower! @nne

  7. Oh Desiree,
    It is just a gorgeous Bastide! Me too, I could move to the South of France immediately!

  8. I'd love to rehab an old one! The wine cellar is so great with the pendant lights.

    But the best...your pillows in your header!
