Interview of Madeleine Munier

A unique location facing the valley of the Luberon and the Alpilles, at the heart of Gordes,
one of France’s most beautiful villages, La Bastide benefits from a grandiose setting. This noble old residence is a place steeped in history where period furniture, objects and refined decor make it an extraordinary retreat in Provence. Comprised of 40 Rooms and Suites, as well as a private villa, La Maison de Constance, La Bastide also offers a wide array of culinary possibilities with its five restaurants (Le Clover Gordes with Jean-François Piège, L’Orangerie, La Citadelle, Le TIGrr and La Bastide de Pierres). The Sisley Spa of 1,600 sq.m then plays an important part in rousing the senses of our guests, with Signature treatments, its indoor pool and other amenities. It is a perfect place for disconnecting and recharging one’s batteries.

In what does La Bastide distinguish itself from other addresses?

A memory worth sharing?
Being awarded the Palace Label in November 2016 was a real joy, the fruit of exemplary teamwork. We strive each day to add further polish to this recognition.

How do you create the “Wow!” effect?

With its extraordinary setting and breathtaking views, La Bastide would not have the same feel without the men and women who participate in its daily activities and give it its soul. Each day, the team devotes itself to looking after all our guests in an authentic, natural and discreet manner. Bespoke service, reflecting real attentiveness to needs, enabling each of our guests to experience a unique stay.

“Madeleine Munier embodies La Bastide since five seasons. Always caring for you, you couldn’t ask for a better mistress of the House”

General Manager of Airelles Gordes, La Bastide

The top 3 most Instagramable places at La Bastide ?

What is your “secret spot” in Gordes?
The viewpoint from the path above the Théâtre des Terrasses in Gordes, simultaneously offering views of the entire Valley of the Luberon and the Alpilles.
