La Bastide de Moustiers

There’s a corner of Provence that so captivated Alain Ducasse on a motorcycle trip, that he decided to buy a cottage in 1994 and transform it into a country inn. La Bastide de Moustiers was first opened 20 years ago, and ever since, it’s been delighting guests with garden-fresh cuisine and the Provençal art de vivre.

Surrounded by olive groves and fields of lavender, La Bastide de Moustiers has an outstanding, produce-centric restaurant overseen by Michelin-starred chef Christophe Martin. To celebrate the inn’s anniversary this spring, Martin has created a special tasting menu that showcases the best of Provence: think green and white asparagus, purple artichokes, salted cod, Riez lamb, fava beans, Châteaurenard parsnips and last but not least: local strawberries with a dollop of goat’s milk sorbet.
