A typical historical House in the heart of Provence

History of la Bastide

The domain was built in the heart of the Nineteenth Century by the Prailly baroness, who wanted to escape the harsh north of France winter.

Back then, Hyères is well known as luxury winter resort. The town attracts a lot of famous people of the time, such as Alexandre Dumas, Alphonse de Lamartine, Robert Louis Stevenson, or George Clemenceau. In 1892, Queen Victoria spent three months in Hyères, and was received at le Plantier by the owner of that time.

In 1896, the famous writer and Academician Paul Bourget buys the property. Previously known as “Villa des Palmiers”, he renames the property “Plantier de Costebelle” in reference to all the exotic plants that are growing in the property. In very good term with the French high society of the time, Paul Bourget hosts many of his good friend, such as Andre Gide, the American writer Edith Wharton, the Marechal Joffre, and the cardinal Anatole de Saint Cabrières.

Paul Bourget left the Plantier to his niece and his husband, French General Marius Daille.

General Daille great nephew, Admiral Gérard Daille inherited the domain in 1978 where he lives until 1996. It is at this date that the current owner purchased la “Bastide du Plantier”, Paul Bourget old Guesthouse.

Since 2018, La Bastide du Plantier is offered as a seasonal rental for an unforgettable holiday. This magical place can also be entirely privatized for an evening or a weekend (reception, wedding …).
