La Bastide de Moustiers

La Bastide de Moustiers | Sycamore Tucked away in a less traveled corner of Provence is a little town called Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. It's built into the side of a cliff, with a waterfall spilling out below. Hanging on a wire between the two peaks above the town hangs a golden star. It's a magical place.

One summer day, over a decade ago, my mom and I were lucky enough to visit. Moustiers is known for its earthenware pottery... which was beautiful, but we had another prize in mind...

La Bastide de Moustiers. A beautiful little country inn with an unbelievable farm to table restaurant. We spent an evening on that terrace eating course after delicious course. The one that stands out in my memory after all these years was a truffle risotto. It was quite a splurge for us, so we only spent one night, and we only ate one meal. It was so worth it.

Have you ever saved up your pennies for one crazy decadent thing? What was it? Was it worth it?
