The Bastide De Moustiers : Alain Ducasse’s Little Paradise in Provence

A true haven of peace, the Bastide De Moustiers is a Provençale inn full of character located in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, which has become an exceptional place under the aegis of chef Alain Ducasse. Endowed with 13 rooms, this old building also houses a Michelin-starred restaurant inspired by local produce.

It was in 1994, during an escapade on a motorbike on the roads of Provence, that Alain Ducasse fell in love with the Bastide De Moustiers, the former property of a master potter, covered with fields of lavender and olive trees… When he became its owner, he decided to create a warm and welcoming inn and entrusted the decoration to his friend Tonia Peyrot.

White, Aviary, Raspberry, Hollyhock, Poppy, Dovecote, Almond, Lavender, Sunflower, Bee, Pumpkin… these words so evocative of Provence are the names of the different rooms of this country house of character, which also includes 2 suites. The Olive, a genuine little independent cottage, is located below the principal building, while the Bastidon suite, inaugurated last May, unites comfort and contemporary interiors over a spacious 80 square meters.

It’s a place that should appeal to gourmets since the Bastide De Moustiers houses a Michelin-starred restaurant. Its chef Christophe Martin proposes two menus at lunch and dinner, all with a little taste of Provence… What could be more natural ? Herbs, lettuce and vegetables grow in the massive kitchen garden that reigns over the 4 hectares of gardens of this delightful country house.
