Provence villa walking distance to village - this is a beautiful stone built Mas dating from the 17th century, fully restored to a high standard and retaining much of its original character. The typical Provence style with flagstone floors in some of the rooms creates a cool and airy ambience. Other marvellous features include a large open fireplace and a minstrel gallery.
The house is located in a beautiful part of Provence known as Van Gogh country for its sunflowers and olive trees. The area surrounding this villa near St Remy with pool has plenty to offer, which may include visiting the wetlands of Camargue (one of Europe' s most important nature reserves), golf courses (Les Baux-de-Provence 3 miles, Mouries 15 mins, Nimes 25 mins) or riding, cycling and walking in the Alpilles hills.
For visitors seeking more relaxing pastimes, there is a Roman amphitheatre in Arles to visit, the necropolis of Alyscamps, a Van Gogh museum at St Remy and various annual music festivals in Aix-en-Provence and Orange. There are local markets at nearby Maussane and St Remy, where you will also find pavement cafes and a wider choice of restaurants. This charming villa near St Remy with pool is ideally situated for visiting this very interesting part of Provence.

A perfect little house and being on the edge of the village with easy access to restaurants is such a bonus. I suggest trying the Bistro du Paradou, but it is a very popular restaurant so do book a table to avoid disappointment. Great food and great atmosphere. Maussanne – another lovely village just five minutes’ drive away - has all the shops and restaurants you could wish for. For some Provencal culture you should also try to visit the famous Santon museum (small hand-painted terracotta nativity figurines).
