Bastide Le Mourre: tranquil hideaway in Provence

Bastide Le Mourre

A quiet afternoon in the Provençal countryside, reading a book or taking a nap after a dip in the pool. A walk into the medieval village of Oppède le Vieux in the evening for dinner. Who hasn’t fantasized about a lazy holiday in the south of France, lounging among the vineyards with sweeping views of the mountains and fields?

If you want to get away from the crowds and spend time in the countryside, consider staying at Le Mourre, a bastide near Oppède le Vieux, a small village built on a rocky hill, close to Menerbes.
