Bastide St Mathieu is everything that you would expect from Provence. It is a beautiful XVIII century manor house surrounded by a hectare of gardens with lush olive trees, lavender and palm trees. Located in the countryside of Grasse, the Bastide is real a peaceful heaven and a great choice for a wedding.
The villa is built of massive exposed stone walls and contains 7 magnificent baronial style suites, each decorated with style and elegance, using the highest quality materials and pieces of décor. Each suite carries a name of one of the great people once living and working on the French Riviera. Here you will find the Coco and Igor Suite, the Cole Porter Junior Suite with its own terrace and an en-suite marble bathroom (this room is usually used as a nuptial suite), as well as the Sissi Room and the Bertie (Albert, Prince of Wales) Room. This is an outstanding combination of Provençal traditions and true luxury of all the rooms and facilities.
When decorating and refurbishing the venue, the owners of the Bastide wanted to make a real home away from home for their guests. They made sure to create a real tranquil and romantic setting for couples wishing to say their vows amidst closest family and friends, away from the hustle and bustle of Cannes – which, by the way, is only a 15 minutes drive from the villa.
The ceremonies are usually held on the spacious lawn by the petanque court, following the cocktail by the pool offering amazing views over the Grasse hills and cute cherub statues watching over the crowd. The dinner can be arranged on the big terrace surrounded by a fragrant flowered colonnade, for up to 150 people. A summer stone roofed cuisine d-été (summer kitchen) with full bbq facilities will be great for a so much needed midnight snack or the day-after brunch.
The Grand Salon on the ground floor can be transformed into a nightclub thus allowing your party to go on without time limit.
It is also a great idea for the newly weds to stay in this beautiful villa for a longer period to have the time to enjoy its beauty and relax after some intense months of pre-wedding stress.
