Travel editor’s tips: The Luberon, Provence
Further along the road between the pretty villages of Bonnieux and Menerbes (where Ridley Scott lives and filmed cinematic ode to the region A Good Year) is the beloved Provençal hideaway of Le Bastide de Marie. A sense of peace envelops you as soon you enter its thick stone walls; there is no formal reception, the resident hound wags a tail in welcome and you are invited to make yourself at home in the many comfortably rustic communal rooms. Take breakfast on the wrought iron tables beneath the plane trees with views of the surroundings vineyards.
