La Bastide de Moustiers

Top choice gastronomy in Moustiers Ste-Marie

A legendary table of Provence, founded by chef supremo Alain Ducasse. As you'd expect from this Michelin-starred, much-lauded restaurant, it's a temple to French cuisine – from the playful amuses bouches to the rich, sauce-heavy mains and indulgent desserts. Much of the produce comes from the inn's own kitchen garden. Dress very smartly, and reserve well ahead.

The views from the terrace are dreamy too. It’s 500m down a country lane, signposted off the D952 to Ste-Croix de Verdon.

Rooms (doubles from €275 to €500) are spacious and luxurious, and nearly all have valley views.
