Villa overview

This charming holiday home dates back to the 17th century and was built with local stone to keep its traditional interiors cool. Parts of its original chapel still remain.

This is authentic Provence at its finest, with rustic style adding character and modern touches for guests' comfort.

Admire works of art and sculptures, as well as a library full of fascinating books, while taking in the historic atmosphere of the courtyard and terraces.

With its attractive and sometimes quirky layout, up to 8-10 guests are made welcome here with an assortment of five bedrooms including the air-conditioned double upstairs with a TV and DVD player, reached via stone steps and the prettiest of balconies, and the two enchanting bedrooms on the ground floor which showcase some of the heritage of this charming house.
From the upper balcony and terrace, perch yourself on a bench and gaze towards the surrounding landscapes of Les Alpilles. Then wander down the steps and enjoy lazing in the 15m long swimming pool, set amongst the 2.8 hectares of wonderful grounds.
Make the most of one of the many terraces, listen to the trickle of the water fountain and stroll around the garden looking out for lavender, oleander and fruit trees beside cypresses and pines.
Kids will love playing in the treehouse whilst grown-ups settle for a relaxed game of pétanque.

The house is in such a tranquil position, yet it’s only a short drive to the idyllic village of Les Baux-de-Provence, officially classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ with its medieval lanes, historic monuments, pretty restaurants and impressive château.
Sample some of the excellent olive oil in nearby Maussane-les-Alpilles, soak up the artistic ambience of Saint-Rémy and look out for A-list celebrities in Eygalières, all gems of the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles.

Avignon, Arles and Aix-en-Provence are other fantastic days out or venture towards the Luberon with its iconic perched villages, vineyards and yet more stunning scenery of Provence.
On your adventures, look out for seasonal produce from inviting delicatessens and farmer’s markets to take back to your rustic terrace for al-fresco dining beneath the century-old shady tree in this bucolic Provençal setting.
