How to Get There
This was hands down one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at recently. We originally booked a basic city view room for our stay, but upon check in, we were offered an upgrade...and all I can say is WOW. I don’t know the room category that we were upgraded to, but the room number was 100 and we will be asking for this room every time we return!!! It seemed large enough to have been at least a junior suite with a king bed, living area, large bathroom with separate shower (which was the largest shower I have ever encountered in Europe), and then 2 sets of French doors which opened onto a common area patio and green space overlooking the pools and valley below. We sat on the terrace and drank wine while watching the sunset-it was secluded from the main section of the hotel so it felt like we had our own private villa! We were so blown away that we decided to stay another night (alas, this room was not available the second night, but the staff moved all our luggage to another room that was smaller but still on the valley side). The second room we moved to was above the terrace that connected to the bar-there was a pretty rowdy wedding party going on late into the night but with our white noise app, we were able to drown out the noise. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from this area :)
The staff at the hotel was fantastic-Sébastien and Anthony at the front desk were incredibly helpful and knew exactly who every guest was, greeted them by name as they walked by, and knew which room they were staying in-truly first class service. The concierge, Jose, helped us arrange a day trip the following day to several neighboring villages and had great lunch recommendations.
We ate at the hotel restaurant both nights for dinner and it was phenomenal. Excellent wine list and the menu was the perfect mix of gastronomic and causal cuisine. Rarely do you encounter a place that lives up to its “5 star” claim, but La Bastide exceeds all expectations. If you get the chance to stay here, take it!!
Unfortunately we could only stay one night due to the hotel being closed for a wedding the following day but I knew I had to spend at least 1 night here on our tour of Provence and I’m so glad we did. Perfect arrival with the doormen taking our car off our hands upon arrival, swift and friendly check in and outstanding discreet service, nothing was too much for the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We upgraded our room to a junior suite upon arrival and it was stunning. We ate at the hotel’s sister restaurant Le Pierre Gordes, an atmospheric Italian place just across the road and really enjoyed our evening here and back at the bar having drinks. We really hope to one day return to this little piece of heaven in beautiful Gordes.
This a truly one of the most beautiful hotels in France and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Really a very special experience. I would easily give it five stars except for a few concerns - the Clovers restaurant that is connected to the hotel is overpriced and food quality is not up to par with the quality of the hotel, the wine tour arranged by concierge Jose (who is great!) was ridiculously priced ($1000 for a day!) and not anywhere near worth it, and the hotel bumped us out of the hotel for our last two days that had been booked months in advance to make room for a wedding buyout. However, they did upgrade our rooms and move us to another hotel which was nice but no comparison to La Bastide.
I would definitely return to the hotel for another visit but just make sure you know the cost of concierge services before booking side trips and ensure that your booking cannot be cancelled for whatever reason.
