La bastide de Marie
La Bastide de Marie, This perfectly restored 18th century Bastide in Menerbes, nestled in the middle of vineyards, is a haven of peace.
The warmth and simplicity radiates from every aspect of the building, the antique and mismatched furnitures.
Every bedroom is named after an herb from the nearby hills. Some have their own terraces. Others baronial fireplaces.
Yellow mimosa, purple aster, ochre red or blue Nîmes, exposed stones and antique furniture, transparent linen gauze or printed fabrics, every carefully-crafted details lend each room its own uniqueness.
