Where to stay in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie

Moustiers-Sainte-Marie Hotels

Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a tiny old-world village based at the western mouth of the wild Verdon Gorge, in France’s southeastern Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department. This sleepy, sun-flecked village sits beneath a rocky, tree-capped cliff-face, from which a natural sparkling spring gently flows. Spend lazy days exploring the narrow medieval streets, and shopping in the pottery stores. Outdoorsy types, meanwhile, can enjoy plenty of activity in the adjacent Verdon National Park.

Things to see

Wake up to the sound of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie’s trickling mountain stream - which cuts the village in half with a small, flowery gorge - and set out to explore the town. Architecture-enthusiasts and history-buffs should head to the town’s Parish Church, a 12th century marvel boasting a reddish-brown Lombard bell tower, a rare stacked structure standing at a dizzying 22 metres. After, climb the long stone staircase that curves up the village hill, and reach the Chapel Notre-Dame de Beauvoir, a late 12th century sanctuary showcasing riveting Romanesque and gorgeous Gothic styles - not to mention offering birds-eye village views. Afterwards, pay a quick visit to the village’s icon - an enormous, gold-washed star that hangs suspended by a chain between the Verdon Gorge. This quirky emblem has roots dating back to the 10th century. Nature-lovers can then spend their afternoon horseback riding or hiking beside the turquoise-green river in Verdon National Park, or enjoying a bike ride through the nearby lavender fields.

Hotels in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie

Those looking for affordable mid-range accommodation should stay in one of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie’s 3-star hotels. These rustic getaways offer spacious ensuite rooms complete with free WiFi and satellite TVs. They also boast refreshing outdoor pools and complimentary guest parking. For something more flashy, stay in one of the 4-star hotels in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Here, you’ll enjoy fine in-house dining, ritzy bar-lounges, and lush gardens. There are also a few campsites spread throughout the town and surrounding areas, perfect for fun-loving families or outdoor explorers looking to sleep beneath the diamond-bright stars.

Where to stay

Stay in the centre of this small village and truly immerse yourself in its easy-going rural atmosphere. Visit the many ceramics stores and workshops speckled throughout the winding streets, and stop for lunch at a traditional terraced cafe. In the summer evenings, dine outside at a regional-cuisine restaurant, and watch as dusk cast its flares across the soaring limestone cliffs, and makes them glow pink-orange. Stay in a campsite south of the centre to mix a tranquil natural setting with easy village access. Serious outdoor adventurers, meanwhile, can divide their time between the village and the campsites deep in Verdon National Park.

How to get to Moustiers-Sainte-Marie

Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a peaceful paradise unblemished by the cynical tourist trade - but because of this, the village is a little tricky to get to. Your best bet is to catch a flight into Marseille Provence Airport - which serves flights from dozens of top European destinations year-round. From there, you can hire a car and drive the 125 kilometres north to the village, or take an inexpensive - but lengthy - bus from the Marseille bus station. Once there, explore the town on foot or by rental bike.
