This place is stunning. In the hills with olive groves and herbs a plenty. The pool was luxurious as was the chateau itself. Decorated with modern furnishings but still respectful of preserving the French charm. Many seating areas for guests and an outdoor undercover area for al fresco dining. If you have the budget, as a wedding guest I would... More

We rented Bastide St. Mathieu for a full week for our daughter's June 28, 2014 wedding. The grounds had just been cleaned before we arrived and cleaned again the day before the wedding. The full landscape team was out pulling weeds and blowing everything off. The lavender was in full bloom and absolutely gorgeous!!! They could use a few more... More

I'm so surprised by the negative reviews...our experience was completely different. The grounds and interior exceeded our expectations. In fact, I don't think the pictures on the website do it justice. The owner Soraya was charming and went out of her way to make certain our needs were met. She went beyond her hosting duties to ensure we had an... More

I am writing in response to the manager's reply to the review below as I want other brides to be aware of the shortcomings of this venue. We did receive some 'compensation' from the venue, however this was before we were aware of the lack of air conditioning and other issues. Plus we also had to pay for two of... More

I'm not sure what these past guests are referring to as this place was amazing. The grounds and location is fantastic. The place was exactly what we wanted , each room has a character of i'ts own and was stunningly appointed. The whole staff was friendly and unintrusive so we felt we were in our own weekend paradise in a... More

We got married here in June 2014 and were terribly disappointed. We turned up the day before the wedding for our 3 night stay and the venue had not been litter picked from the previous wedding (cigarette butts, glass, dog mess and general litter). All the furniture was strewn all over the place from wedding the week before and I... More

A luxury venue would be expected to offer not only a stunning location and surroundings but also a wowing presentation. This was hired as a whole location in total not just a single room therefore you'd expect every public area to be beautifully maintained of a standard to match the hype . IT WASN'T.Whilst offering many luxurious fixtures and fittings... More

The Bastide was hired for 3 nights for a wedding, where all rooms were taken by close friends and family and a further 40 people were invited for the day. Professional caterers were hired for the wedding meal itself but for breakfasts and meals either side of this we provided for ourselves. This was the first place that the Bastide... More

We spent a family wedding weekend here in June 2014, great location for a wedding with a lovely terrasse, however there is a lot of areas needing improvement. Air conditioning did not work, some lights not working, owners stuff everywhere-moldy fruit in fruit bowl, fridges full of owners food, fridges not cold enough, no staff around to ask for help....

Wedding venue which was two years in the planning. The house has a stunning position and the rooms are large. Obviously a home that is well loved. But as a venue which is expensive to hire for a weekend it fails on several fronts. Air conditioning did not work and temperatures were in the 30's. Dishwasher full of owners crockery... More
