This was our second stay at the Bastide, we arranged to get the same suite, living room with french doors that open to a set of sling chairs and the views I mention below, and a separate bedroom, a little smallish, queen bed only and we prefer king, but what the heck, it's worth it. the name of the suite is Gres...it is on the corner of the building and offers immediate views of the vineyard, and then unlimited views into the beyond, no people, no villages, just forest, mountains and the blue sky that appears to be lit from within , then followed by most beautiful sunset. It's a Provence sunset, different than a beach sunset, but the sun provides the light that makes Provence famous, that eternal sky of Provence blue. Then the stars come out, the moon, and its starry starry night. We had two sets of chairs, one for morning views to the south, then on the other side of the room, a porch, and two comfy cushioned chaise lounges., facing west to watch the sunset,We booked an eating plan that provided for unlimited drinks, fruit juices, wine,and breakfast and dinner,
OK, let me mention just a quick rundown of the food, all fabulous, baby croissants, and baby pain au Chocolat, fresh orange juice, grapefruit, pear, pomegranate, cherry, and more, all unlimited, caffe au lait or expresso, fresh fruits of the season, all form of eggs, omelets, a giant ham set on a vice- like holder to slice as much beautifully flavored ham as you want, brioche, freshly made confitures, every variety, even green fig. There is a spa with many treatments but it is not very busy, my husband had a massage, and was thoroughly oiled with the scents of Provence. For dinner you are invited each night around 7:30 to a small cocktail party of guests, with gin and tonics,18 year old scotch, all variations of cocktails, champagne and four varieties of wine from their vineyard. small plates are offered and feature olive oil from the property adjacent to the Bastide. Actually there is not much of a wine list, but great wine from the winery that they own, just next to the Bastide, a delicious rose', several white, several reds, and a dessert wine.
Every night 3 courses are served, each with a wine that is paired with the food, or of your own choosing. Also a cheese course is offered at the end of the meal, only one cheese, a fabulous creamy goat round, Both swimming pools are unique and we enjoyed both. There is even a gypsy wagon, you can be a gypsy for a night in style.
Roses, oleander, herbs, lavender, flowers, flowers everywhere, what aroma! The chef was the same on both visits, a lot of the staff has changed, but the managers are the same, and make sure you get what you want. Also we are Americans and didn't find any other Americans, which we like as it makes the experience just ours, with privacy. Met a wonderful British couple and they were a pleasure. I would go every year, but the luxury comes at a price.

Room Tip: see my review...we lov eGres, but I don't think there is a loser in the Bastide.

The other reviews listed are much like mine. This place is so wonderful. The staff, the accomodations, the dinner and breakfast, the wine, the heated pool, the surroundings are all excellent. We just loved it all. About 30 minutes from Avignon and about 45 minutes from Aix en Provence. I highly recommend visiting the Palace de Papas and the bridge in Avignon. Wonderful town and also had a great dinner in Avignon at L'epicerie. A little bistro. The village of Menerbes is nice and many others in the area to visit. We also had a wonderful meal in Bonnieux at L'Arome- excellent and close to hotel. I just cannot say enough nice comments about this wonderful hotel and restaurant. You will not be dissappointed. They created a fireplace at night for us in the common area and served us their own wine which was also excellent. The Luberon mountain area is very special and the hotel is the crown jewel.

Great place beautifully restored and with some very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The restaurant is really the star here offering a daily changing menu for lunch and dinner. The restaurant staff are friendly and the operation is smooth and unhurried. Food was excellent and the chefs certainly warrant our thanks for three delightful evenings. Only small fault is that the pool area with deck is small and up steps. The other small pool is in a lawned garden. The setting is sublime in a quiet corner of Luberon which these days is a joy to find. Menerbes is 3 mins away and always a delightful detour into a world of the beautiful villages of France we all remember, all be it today smartened up with marble streets and other furnishings to grace a Paris boulevard ! A delightful hotel and we will be back.

Room Tip: A suite is always bigger than a room, some rooms are bigger than others...check out the M2 descriptors on the web site and grab a big one.

We first stayed here 11 years ago when the place had just opened. It was wonderful then and it still is. By no means perfect, there was an unpleasant smell in the car park and the lighting in the "rustic" bathrooms could be better but the location, service, food and room quality are very good indeed.

Bastide de Marie is our favourite place in provence! What could be more provincial then staying in a chic, but comfortable, bastide on a vineyard a couple of kilometres from the nearest historical hillside village? It is everything you imagine and more, mireille and all of the staff are incredibly hospitable; and tolerant of our very rustic, sometimes non existant French! From alfresco dining for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner (depending upon the time of the year), the beautiful fresh produce, the fabulous local wines and the wonderful ambiance, are just totally, unimaginably, sublime. If you have the chance, borrow a couple of the bikes and take an early morning ride into Menerbes. Watching that sunrise over the hillside was an experience which will remain close to our hearts for a long time. We cant wait for our next visit!
