La Bastide de Marie, an 18th-century Provence stone house, perfectly manages to encompass old and new style and sophistication. The exterior is a literal feast for all the senses, from the heavenly scents of magnolia, almonds and lavender, the herbs and home-grown produce of the kitchen garden, to the chirp of cicadas and mile-upon mile of bucolic landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see.
Set in 23 hectares of vines and parkland, an intimate evening dinner on the terrace, against a lantern-lit backdrop of vines, is particularly special, not least for the simple yet imaginative fusion of authentic Provencal flavours.
Indoors, La Bastide de Marie is best described as a heady mix of bohemian, baroque chic, where vintage curios, rich fabrics and antique furnishings complement the colours, lights and harmonies of the southern-inspired design. Individual, quirky and full of flair.
