Overview

A "superb" (Condé Nast Traveller) Michelin-star restaurant forms the heart of La Bastide de Moustiers, a "luxury retreat" (Fodor's) owned by renowned chef Alain Ducasse that offers "charming accommodation" (Frommer's) in rural Provence.

This 17th-century country house is set amid lush gardens lined with lavender and olive trees, just a few minutes' drive from Moustiers-Sainte-Marie's picturesque village centre. Riez, known for its Roman temple, is a 20 minutes' drive away, and both Gorges du Verdon -- a river canyon that is one of the most beautiful in Europe -- and Lac de Sainte-Croix, which offers a range of watersports, are around 30 minutes' drive from the hotel.

La Bastide de Moustiers is housed in a "fine building" (The Michelin Guide 2017) lined with shutters and restored by local craftsmen. The hotel's elegant interiors feature antique furnishings, richly patterned fabrics and details such as fireplaces, gilt mirrors and ornate woodcarvings.

The staff at the Michelin-starred restaurant "hit the local markets and the property's own kitchen garden, and let the seasonal produce shine", says Condé Nast Traveller. Guests can dine al fresco on the restaurant's shaded terrace while taking in views of the surrounding landscape, take a dip in the vineyard-view outdoor pool (open in summer), and enjoy the extensive grounds, which include rose-covered trellises, cypress trees and a fountain. Cookery classes and bicycles are also available (supplements apply).

The individually decorated guestrooms are "fresh and comfortable, an unpretentious mixture of antiques and country prints" (Fodor's). All rooms have free Wi-Fi, a TV, an iPod dock and a mini bar, while distinct touches range from 4-poster beds, balconies and fireplaces to roll-top baths, direct park access and rooms with mezzanine levels. There's also a standalone suite with wood-beamed ceilings, a marble bathroom and a private garden.

From the press:
  • "Gourmands from around the world flock to this lovely 17th-century bastide" – Fodor's

  • "The 11 bedrooms and pair of suites are graceful and cool, decorated in a pared-back country style" -- Condé Nast Traveller
