Dreaming ( like me) to own your little place n Provence ? La Bastide de Marie is the BEST next thing...in fact you will think, after a short while that you are "at home", in your own home..and with that in mind.. you will not want to leave !!! Everything is PERFECT! from the time you drive in the"very " private main gate ..you feel at home ( for those who mentioned it was "hard " to find, this IS the idea, to stay very very private with no large sign off the road- To find, I suggest to look for the Domaine de Marie, adjacent to the Bastide- their own Vineyards...)-
So.. back to La Bastide de Marie: Absolute perfection: the suites, all differents again like a Home, have incredible personal touch, as if they knew you were coming, and they knew what you liked. Now that IS perfection! Small details.. of perfection throughout the properties..from the common grounds, to the restaurants.. oh do not start me on the Food!!!! a De..LIGHT !! breakfast , lunch or dinner..why even bother going anywhere else..I wonder.... the Bastide becomes your little retreat.. but for the 1st time Provence visitors, I suggest to go and explore all day long.. and return to this Oasis of Peace.. and linger through dinner.. talk, drink and enjoy the delightful cuisine.. because.. when you will return to your"home" you WILL still savor all the moments you experienced at La Bastide de Marie.. so go and experience this very unique place !!!! where Life is celebrated on a daily basis...

Room Tip: get up early and " listen" to the silence....dine late..Perfect for couples, friends...

The building and physical surrounds are truly beautiful .
La Baside is hard to locate and while we'd read that on trip advisor we underestimated what a challenge it was to find the place .
The gentleman who "greeted" (sic) us after an arduous trip was less than pleasant and the car park spaces ( despite acres of land to spare ) are tiny and an accident waiting to happen....hardly a comfortable situation after a long journey.
The women at La Bastide were pleasant.
There is pressure to eat in and no self coffee/tea making facilities were available in the room.
The delightful addition of peaches in the room only happened on the first day... it was not continued.
I get the impression La Bastide caters for the world weary who don't move from the pool ,the spa and the cuisine .
They don't seem to understand that overseas visitors like to explore,request maps and savour suggestions etc.
We couldn't even score a map.
When I was asked to comment on Guest apartment services in Paris it struck me how much more competent Guest was in meeting their customers needs.

It is clear that you will discover an authentic "provencal bastide" and you will forget the modern world and modern style also if we discuss about decoration. The room are more than OK, the common areas : you have impression that it is your private home with a good chief in your kitchen, good product and good choice = enjoy the meal. We cannot say that it is an hotel but a very nice "bastide" with some rooms for your guests. And the district is a real beautiful areas with nice villages.

Room Tip: Try one night the exterior caravan.

I had heard many wonderful things about this place and have been wanting to visit for a while. So was delighted and hugely looking forward to spending 2 nights here as part of our South of France holiday. En route from Burgundy we drove here via Gordes - one thing to say at this point is if you are staying anywhere near Menerbes, make sure you pencil in a visit to Gordes. It is absolutely stunning, a dramatic village literally built into the sharp cliff of a mountain. So - back to Bastide Marie. As a newbie to Provence I have always dreamed and imagined "lollipop" cypress tree driveways and fields of lavender and wow it did not disappoint! Bastide Marie also delivers 100% on this with the added bonus of an onsite winery and vineyards all around. The wine is out of this world - the most refreshing, delicious ice cold rose I have ever tasted, available all day, you just help yourself. By the pool, in your room, sitting watching the sun go down over the vineyards as long shadows fall and everything is tinged with that wonderful warming honey colour of the evening sun. It was everything I had imagined and unbelievably romantic, dining outside in candlelight with efficient waiters and waitresses gliding in, almost unnoticeable but always there for you. And in the background the unmistakable sound of the cicadas that just to me mean holiday and happy times. Fabulous food and a wonderful lazy petit dejeuner. There are 2 pools each in a fantastic setting although the one nearest the main house is especially secluded and quiet. We had the Mauve Astor room, which was on two levels. Lovely room and they give you the most ripe and sweet peaches. We were going to walk the short distance to Menerbes but the pool was too tempting so we lazed there instead! Beautiful place and will be one of my happiest memories for a very long time.

Room Tip: I am sure all rooms are beautiful here!

My mother and I stayed at this exquisite 18th century property. Each of the 15 rooms are decorated in beautiful fabrics and unique furniture and modern bathrooms with great water pressure. The rooms are not large but no detail is overlooked. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The property is situated on a vineyard, Le Domaine de Marie, with spectacular views. The restaurant is wonderful with scrumptious menus and local ingredients. We opted to eat every night at the restaurant and did not regret our decision. There is a spa but we did not partake in the services. We had a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend this property, worth the splurge!

Room Tip: All rooms are different. We stayed in Vanille and loved it but I think they are all equally lovely.
