La Bastide de Moustiers

Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

Staff scurry around attending to your every whim, the pool is blissful and the food has a Michelin star. Rustic luxury in perfect Provence


13 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


The views of the lovely village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, the estate with its family of deer and the mountains all around give a magical feel. The hotel, however, has its feet firmly on the ground. This beautifully restored bastide rests at the foot of the cliffs of Moustiers: a 17th-century house, a cluster of stone cottages, and 13 bedrooms between them. For breakfast, lunch and divine dinner (the owner is Alain Ducasse) tables topped with white parasols sit on shaded terraces, and all is impeccable yet rustic. If you don’t want to dine in, then the village, bustling with shops and restaurants, is a sprint up the hill or a three-minute drive. Staff are here to satisfy every whim and the attention to detail is striking, from your flip-flops and towels for the delicious pool to the helipad for the wealthy. Paragliders, riders, canoeists and climbers find heaven in the Parc Naturel du Verdon, and mountain bikes are available on request. Dreamy bedrooms to come home to (two with beds on mezzanines, most with private patios) complete the five-star picture.
