Just outside the stylish town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (2.7km), Le Mas de l’Artiste is nestled in the heart of Provence with over 5000m2 of grounds with stunning views and direct access to Les Alpilles Natural Park.
St-Rémy is well known for being popular with artists, many live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. The most famous artist of all has to be Vincent Van Gogh who checked himself into the asylum St Paul de Mausole, which can be visited today, and created 150 paintings including ‘Starry Night’. In the summer months, on selected Sundays, the ‘Route des Artistes’ fills with local artists showing off their work creating a wonderful and bustling atmosphere.
The town is also famous for its many restaurants, from down to earth bistros found on pretty narrow streets to Michellin starred establishments. The surrounding countryside is rich with olive groves and vineyards with private tours and tastings easily arranged. Food lovers, don’t miss the market on a Wednesday morning!
There are various festivities taking place across the year including the town’s biggest festival around 15th August which includes bull running, Camargue horse displays, street performers and local musicians. Other highlights of the town include two museums and the archaeological remains dating back to 2nd century BC at the Glanum site just south of the town.
The small but lively city of Avignon (22km) is worthy of a visit during your stay. Explore the winding medieval streets, experience further excellent dining opportunities and visit two UNESCO world heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge. The covered market offers all sorts of delights or head to the weekend farmers, flower and flea markets for wonderful local produce and a bargain or two. The bohemian quarter of the city, just next to the Sorgue river, has more of a village atmosphere with its artists, musicians, cafes and wine-bars.
You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic hilltop villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers. Baux-de-Provence (10km), one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ and Van Gogh’s precious Arles (30km), are both within easy reach. Gordes (35km) is yet another one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months.
Those looking for activity have so much on their doorstep. There is both horse-riding and golf within a short drive and both the immediate and wider area are a walkers and cyclists paradise with stunning countryside and landscapes. Older children will love kayaking in the Sorgue and there are plenty of other family friendly activities throughout the region from model railways, open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.
