General Description

This old farmhouse converted into a summer villa is located near Fontvielle and Baux de Provence, nestled into the rock at the heart of Provence. It was completely renovated by its artistic owners. Surrounded by 4 hectares of park, planted with pine and some olive trees, it is the essence of Provence.

This villa can accommodate up to 8 people. Its gypsies trailers and its pine park make this property an ideal Provencal holiday rental. Mainly all on one level, this air-conditioned house offers a wonderful living room with dining area and open fireplace, modern fully equipped kitchen with American fridge freezer. Both these rooms have large patio doors to the terrace and pool area. There are 4 spacious double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and two shower rooms, wonderful terrace to dine al fresco and just beyond a secured enclosed 6 x 12m pool with teak decking in a beautiful natural surrounding.

This villa is bathed in light all day but stays fresh thanks to the air conditioning system. You'll love the late night conversations and dinners on the terrace after spending part of the day exploring the region or the park that offers many jogging paths.

Local Area / Activities

This area of Provence boasts history and beautiful scenery not only of the Alpilles hills but also of the ruined Castle that dominates the landscape surrounding Les Baux. The castle can be traced back to the 10th century. The local people finally destroyed it 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 villa. ?A? 25 minutes drive north from this Les Baux de Provence is the medieval Papal city of Avignon, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and site of the world' s biggest gothic palace. The city of Arles is just to the south with an impressive Roman arena, once holding 20,000 spectators. This is the gateway to the wetlands of the Camargue with its diverse wildlife ranging from pink flamingos to white horses and black fighting bulls.
