Bastide de Marie. One of my favourite venues in the Luberon!

The Luberon is bursting with fabulous hotels but one of my favourites is Bastide de Marie between Ménerbes and Bonnieux. This stunning Provençal luxury hotel is set amongst the heart of Luberon vineyards and within cycling distance of Ménerbes, a hilltop village made famous by Peter Mayle’s book ‘A Year in Provence’

An elegant country farmhouse dating from the 18th century and restored in the pure tradition of a Provençal bastide. Nestled in the heart of 26 hectares of vineyards, La Bastide de Marie flourishes with authentic roots and offers you a setting conducive to relaxation under the Epicurean sun. The house is reached by walking down a path lined with cypress trees, century-old olive trees and the bewitching scent of lavender.

Bastide de Marie feels like you’re entering a family home, adorned with soft colours, fine fabrics, an atmosphere between chic and rustic and decorated with flea markets and baroque pieces. The Property perfectly combines simplicity and the charms of Provence. 

You can enjoy lunch on the terrace in the shade of the big lime tree and let your eyes wander over the low wall and through the vineyards. Or you can spend the afternoon avoiding the glaring summer heat with a massage at the Pure Altitude Spa. 

If you’re looking for a photoshoot to capture your Provence adventure then don’t hesitate to contact me – We can visit one of the local villages or head to a field of poppies, lavender or sunflowers depending on the season! 

Or perhaps your considering a wedding at La Bastide de Marie. You can privatise the Bastide de Marie to get married in the middle of their stunning vineyards. La Bastide is best suited for more intimate events of up to 80 guests, providing the perfect setting for a romantic, fairytale wedding.
