A thousand years old story

Ancient building with many lives, the Bastide de la Mandarine has many treasures and secrets some of which are unveiled here. To know the whole story, you will have to come here and listen to murmur the plane trees , to decipher the clues yourself and to enrich the soul of this bastide of your own experience.


At the beginning

Let’s go back to history! The Bastide was on the Roman road from Apta Julia to Massilia. From this time, we have many Roman coins on the land and stone pipes carved distributing the many sources of the neighborhood. Heritage of an ancient time, two square stones engraved with a five-pointed star were found enchassées in the walls. This star symbolizes the achievement of Man and the necessary unity of his spirit with the four elements of nature: water, fire, air and earth. You will find one next to the Shell Fountain, placed here to welcome you.


The XVIIIth century legacy

Early 18th, three majestic plane trees are planted to bring some freshness. They are surrounded by a large Provençal stone wedge which, in addition to serving as threshing floor for the sheaves of wheat, prevented visitors from getting bogged down in the very clayey terrain of the district. From the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century, it’s the great adventure of silk . The bastide becomes an important magnanerie and the building grows to install the silkworm racks . Mulberry trees are then planted on the edge of the path to feed their leaves these precious caterpillars that are called here lou magnan.


A family story !

(by Mary)

My family has been from the Pays d’Apt for many generations. My father’s family had a candied fruit factory and my maternal grandfather ran an Ocher quarry. Between the deep red of the candied cherry and the beauty of orange pigments of ocher, I fell passionately in love with this country, My Country. Mother of two, I chose to stay faithful to this old city of Apt so that my children grow up in permanent contact with nature , the sun and their roots It’s today at you that I want to discover this country in what it has more authentic and more great ! The sweetness of life is here and waiting for you.

Au calme, du charme, propre et fonctionnelle et avec une hote accueillante !
Frederic, avril 2018
Accueil et disponibilité parfaits. Cadre champêtre idyllique à 1 minute du centre ville. Maison neuve équipée avec beaucoup de goût et très fonctionnelle.
Hugo, avril 2018
Je suis partagé entre l’envie de vous conseiller cet endroit et celle de garder pour moi cet endroit magnifique… Nous avons passé une semaine parfaite chez Marie qui nous a merveilleusement accueillis. Une semaine à 3 avec notre fille de 8 mois, pour laquelle nous avons trouvé sur place tout ce que nous ne pouvions pas emporter dans le train. Le lieu est idéal, on surplombe Apt, la vue y est magnifique et rejoindre le centre à pied avec poussette prend une quinzaine de minutes. On est bien au calme dans le jardin, et le jacuzzi est la cerise sur le gâteau. Marie a été aux petits soins avec nous et très réactive. N’allez pas ailleurs !
François, avril 2018

Fabrice, mars 2018
Le gîte est fonctionnel. Rien ne manque et la propreté est impeccable. Il est très bien situé puisque depuis Apt, l’on peut visiter tous les magnifiques villages aux alentours. L’accueil de Marie est excellent puisque notre hôte est discrète tout en étant disponible si besoin

Très bel accueil. Un gîte très propre et très bien rénové. Excellent pour un séjour dans le Lubéron
Isabelle, décembre 2017
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et nous avons été très bien accueillis dans ce gîte impeccablement tenu et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Un plateau des 13 desserts nous attendait à notre arrivée. Je recommande vivement le gîte de Marie.
