General Description

This is a traditional villa in an ancient setting, sitting in almost 750 acres of vineyards, one of the largest wine domaines in the region bordering the beautiful village of Les Baux de Provence in Les Alpilles. It is tastefully decorated and furnished, and boasts beautiful views not only of the Alpilles mountains but also of the ruined castle which dominates the landscape surrounding Les Baux. The castle can be traced back to the 10th century. It was finally destroyed by the local people in 1632 to bring an end to the centuries of conflicts, revolts, sieges and wars of religion which had taken place there. Today, quaint artisan shops and restaurants line the tiny cobbled streets. A wider range of amenities can be found at Mausanne les Alpilles and at St-Remy-de-Provence, birthplace of Nostradamus, both of which are within easy reach of this Les Baux de Provence villa.
