Spring at the Bastide

Spring in Provence is the time of the first colourful burst of a radiant nature, but it is also the time of wonders for the visitor who takes the time to get lost in it.

Springtime at La Bastide de Marie - Ménerbes

Cherry time

Spring in Provence is the time of the first colourful burst of a radiant nature, but it is also the time of wonders for the visitor who takes the time to wander around and discover new flavours and magical treasures. In Ménerbes, a small village perched on its rocky spur in the Luberon, the magic is even more intense, with its typical Provençal chic and its narrow streets where the history of a forgotten era seems to live on.

The awakening of nature

In spring, as the vines recover from winter, revealing all their splendour, the promise is clear: share the life of an estate! With pruning shears in hand, learn to tame the vineyard, which is once again longing for virgin vines, and then find the providential coolness of the cellar for a wine tasting, with why not a Pata Negra ?... Between two tastings, the Luberon countryside invites you to discover its wildest corners.

With a picnic basket under one arm and Jocelyne Sibuet's travel book under the other, give yourself over to the magic of the place: to its small, charming markets, to its flock of tables with the most exquisite tastes, to its fields of lavender as far as the eye can see...

On your return from this spring escape, the tranquility of the Bastide welcomes you for a refreshing swim in its pools, beautifully integrated into the harmony of the place. It is then time to discover the jewel of the Domaine: its restaurant. Its chef François Martin, inspired by the fresh produce gleaned from the market in the morning, concocts a high-flying, fragrant and singing cuisine.

Comfortably curled up in an armchair under the lime trees, or by the fire if the sky is capricious, do with time as you please, give it your rhythm, impose your tempo. According to your desires, imagine an art of living that resembles you, and whose universe would be made of softness, finesse, tenderness and poetry. Let yourself go into a daydream, where a visit to a market becomes a magical culinary moment, where lavender spreads out in a palette of blue-violet drawing a fantastic landscape, and the truffle is the food of all moments.

Stroll through the antique and vintage shops in L'Isle sur la Sorgue to find your most beautiful treasures, get lost in history at the Abbey of Sénanques or the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, walk in the Colorado of Rustrel... let yourself go, at every moment, enjoy, live, breathe in every little happiness that we offer you at La Bastide de Marie: the comfort of your room, breakfast on the terrace, afternoon tea in the lounge, an aperitif with the flavours of the South, dinner served with the wines of the Domaine.
