La Bastide de Marie

    You couldn’t ask for a more perfect setting, here in the Luberon of Provence, among the lavender. At this airy, modern-rustic getaway, the food matches the caliber of the surroundings. The spotlight is on the region’s abundant yield, so you can count on a light touch to bring out the natural flavors of the produce itself. Local pork is roasted with herbs, skate poached in citrus, and crème brûlée perfumed with the property’s own lavender.

    Specialties: Seasonal Provençal fare.
