Directions to La Bastide des TempliersBras is easy to reach, because only 10 km away from major traffic arteries like the motorway A8 and the highway N7 (Aix-en-Provence - Nice), north of Saint-Maximin-La-Sainte-Baume.
By car: Leave the A8 in Saint-Maximin (exit #34) and immediately after the toll station turn right to Bras (when arriving on N7, head for the town centre and follow the country road D28 to Bras). In Bras drive on to the centre (until Café "Le Nemrod"), and after 50 m turn left at the plane trees into Emile Combes lane. Then follow the blue "Bastide des Templiers" signs for 1300 m up to the hilltop. Please note that our property is nestling amidst sylvan surroundings about 1.5 km outside the village. The access road is partly narrow and the last 300 meters are unpaved and a bit bumpy, making it somewhat difficult for low-slung vehicles.
By plane: International Airports are Marseilles-Provence (80 km from us) and Nice-Cote d'Azur (130 km).
By train: get off at high-speed railway station in Marseilles-St.Charles or Aix-en-Provence TGV (both 65 km from us). From those airports or train stations, you may take a bus line to Saint-Maximin and then come by taxi to Bras or rent a car. We also provide a pick-up service (payable).
You travel without a car? Although the village has a variety of cafes, restaurants and local shops all within walking distance (it's a 15 min walk down to the centre), we strongly recommend a car for sightseeing or city trips as public transport is rather bad out here).
