Provençal cuisine in a beautiful traditional house

featured in Restaurants Updated

Located in the charming village of Menerbes and overlooking the Luberon vineyards, La Bastide de Marie is a B&B with a traditional Provençal restaurant serving classic dishes made with fresh, seasonal and local produce.

Their specialities include smoky chilled tomato soup with olive tartare, Provençal-style "caillettes" (meatballs) with herbs from the kitchen garden, creamy risotto with Vaucluse mushrooms and truffles, crème brulée flavoured with lavender grown on the estate, and profiteroles with lime tree blossom and lemon frosted with juniper and thyme. You can enjoy their cuisine in the terrace or the indoor dining room.

Their aperitif at the vineyard is also a delight. Afternoon teatime is every day between 16:30-17:30.

They also offer cooking lessons with chef Laurent Houdart, which include a visit to the country market at Coustellet, a tour of the Bastide's kitchen garden and the preparation of traditional Proveçal recipes.
