About the Location

Nestled into the rock at the heart of Provence, this old farmhouse converted into a summer villa is located on Route des Baux de Provence. This central location in Les Alpilles makes a Provence stay with the kids super easy. It is approximately 45 minutes from Marseille airport and 25 minutes to Avignon TGV station. There are 3 villages under 2 km away: Paradou, Fontvieille and Maussane, plus Les Baux de Provence, an easy 5 minute drive away. The nearest village has grocery stores, a small supermarket, a butcher, bakeries, restaurants and more.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom house with a pool is set in a 4-hectare park planted with pine and olive trees. The living room and kitchen open onto the terrace and pool. All bedrooms have a private ensuite bathroom and queensize beds. There is an indoor and outdoor kitchen and a spacious living room with dining room. The house is set across 2 levels and built into the rock; it has a slightly unconventional layout, with a kitchen accessed up stairs from the lounge. Some bedrooms are upstairs and others are downstairs.

Style Notes

Boho luxe. This house has a unique style and was completely renovated in 2012 by its owners, an artist couple. Its gypsy caravans, Camargue-inspired decoration, and playful primary colors make it a bohemian, inspiring and artistic retreat. The villa is bathed in light all day but stays fresh thanks to the air conditioning system. We love the terrace for late night conversations and dinners, the jogging path and petanque court in the expansive gardens and the unique art found throughout the home.

I am in love with Provence. I love the blue of the sky, the heat in Summer, the cold in Winter..the food, the people..

Provence, South of France

Markets, lavender and the cigale's song

It’s no wonder that Provence has inspired artists from Cézanne to Picasso with colors like these: purple fields of lavender, white horses in the Camargue and blue, blue skies in summer. Experience it like the locals by shopping for fresh figs and sunflowers in local markets, seeking out quiet beaches and swimming in lakes and rivers. From the Alps to the coast, the honey-coloured hilltop villages to the perfume fields of Grasse, and the simple pleasures of country living to luxurious enclaves and Michelin-starred restaurants, this corner of France is divine.
