An Enchanting Evening at Bastide de Marie

IMG_4401

Just a skip down the road from our rental in Ménerbes, we returned to la Bastide de Marie for our final evening of our yearly trip to Provence. And the meal won for best of the trip, though a couscous and garbanzo dish from an auberge in Brantes was hard to forget!

This year the weather was perfect, in the month of June, and the tables were set up outside overlooking the vineyard. We started with complimentary apéros and appetizers before moving over to our table for the evening. Soon the sun was setting, and as if with the stroke of an artist’s hand, the color of the sky was changing moment by moment. A Provençal sunset is a sight not to be missed.

With a small, select menu to choose from, we chose the fish and the lobster. It’s the “secret” sauce that makes the meal in France. This was exquisite! And of course, like last time, the wine of the domaine was included throughout the evening.

Ending our trip with an evening at la Bastide de Marie was special. But really, anywhere in Provence, even sitting on a rock overlooking the valley while watching the sunset would be a special evening indeed.

    • Thank you so much! I mostly just use my cell phone because it is so easy to carry around. These photos here are with the phone. I wasn’t there in March, but the weather was sunny and around 60 degrees often when I checked.
