An introduction to La Bastide de Moustiers

How would you describe La Bastide de Moustiers in a nutshell?

La Bastide de Moustiers is Alain Ducasse’s first country hotel nestled at the entrance of the Gorges du Verdon in Provence, France. Strolling in the park, plunging in the swimming-pool, lazing in a hammock, tasting the vegetables from the garden are simple pleasure of life making this Inn a place where time seems to stop.

Please tell us how the country hotel idea started.

A resident of the French Riviera for more than fifteen years, Alain Ducasse discovered the Alpes de Haute-Provence on long motorbike rides and fell in love with Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and its outstandingly beautiful countryside.

In 1995, he started looking for a property where, on one hand, he could stay when out on his motorbike rides and, on the other hand, enable him to welcome those who might be looking for a holiday in a little corner of paradise a long way from the urban hubbub.

What would you describe your hotel’s philosophy?

In a world of perpetual change, our quest for excellence demands that we constantly explore new forms of contemporary luxury with the ambition to give each customer an unforgettable holiday experience.

What do you particularly like about life in Provence?

Provence is a way of life: It is all about gastronomy, oenology and nature. It is the perfect area to take time to relax and enjoy life.

How long do you recommend to stay to get a feeling of the Alain Ducasse hotels?

A romantic evening with dinner or a whole week on holiday with your family. Our hotels are very welcoming for any kind of journey.

La Bastide de Moustiers rooms & rates

In our small hotel, we have 11 rooms and 2 suites. Particularly spacious is the Bastidon Suite. It comprises two rooms, a bedroom and a living room, as well as a bathroom and a dressing room, covering a total area of almost 80 square metres. Alain Ducasse and his interior design friend Tonia Peyrot worked together on the décor to give this new suite a charm that is both chic as well as traditional.

To me, the Bastide de Moustiers is a unique place for a holiday because it is like paradise to be able to stand amidst lavenders and centuries-old olive trees.
