About The Experience
Luxury, beauty and comfort are just some of the things this countryside villa in Provence has to offer. A grand entrance hall, multiple living spaces with family-friendly activities and a sculpted garden with a private pool are a few of the attractive traits of this property. Dine indoors or out, underneath the stars or with the rising sun, it’s your pick! Your luxurious surroundings may keep you captivated but don’t forget you are surrounded by many of Provence’s most popular towns including Arles and St-Remy-de-Provence!
Location Description

Located south of Saint-Remy-de-Provence, between Arles and Salon de Provence is this large countryside villa within walking distance of a small hamlet where there is a baker, newspaper delivery and tennis courts. This villa is in the heart of historical Provence, close to Fontvieille, Arles and Maussane-les-Alpilles. Just 5 km away is the town of Raphèle les Arles which has a wider range of facilities, including a supermarket, or venture further to Saint Martin de Crau which has many shops, restaurants and more markets. Worth visiting, Arles has a large two-tiered Amphitheater. Built in the first century by the Romans, the Amphitheater is capable of seating almost 25,000 spectators, and it originally provided entertainment in the form of chariot races and gladiatorial combat. Today it is used for bullfighting (during feria pascale), concerts and plays. On Saturdays there is a large market, one of the largest in Provence, where you can purchase textiles, pottery, art and local goods. This is also an ideal location for exploring the Alpilles Mountains or the Camargue, with its diverse wildlife, including pink flamingos, and horseback riding excursions.
