Provence luxury village villa with pool and gardens – Surrounded by a beautiful manicured garden, sheltered by tall cypress and palm trees, this elegant property offers the rare opportunity to enjoy all the advantages of a Provencal village location in a spectacular, private setting.
Refurbished to the highest standard, Paradis Provencal successfully combines a sleek, modern interior décor with a classic style, featuring high ceilings, a long picture gallery and a stunning walled garden with private pool and covered pergola. The light floods the living room through double-aspect floor-to-ceiling windows and doors which open onto a courtyard terrace where guests can relax and enjoy splendid views over the walled garden and pool: indoor and outdoor living in perfect harmony!
This area of Provence is also known as Van Gogh’s country This expressionist artist found his inspiration in the sunflower fields, olive groves and hilltop villages scattered throughout Les Alpilles, its scented lavender and rosemary fields and remarkable landscape. The charming village of Maussane-les-Alpilles offers a variety of restaurants and shops selling the produce this village is famous for: olive oil, goat’s cheese, jam, olive cream, rosemary and lavender honey.
A short drive will take you to Les Baux-de-Provence, St Remy-de-Provence, Eygalières and Arles, boasting impressive archaeological Roman sites, museums, art galleries and typical Provencal houses. Avignon, the Medieval Papal city, prides itself on being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most picturesque cities in France. For a change of scenery, La Camargue’s unspoilt nature trails can be reached in less than one hour's drive: watch out for the famous pink flamingos, fighting bulls and wild horses running free through the wetland.
I really like this villa which is one of my favourites. To me, being at the edge of the village is an added bonus: no need to worry about drink and drive! In Paradou you have the Bistro du Paradou, one of the coolest restaurants in the area, but I recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment as it is always full! The food is great and so is the atmosphere, however you can walk into Maussane to find numerous bars and restaurants. If you drag yourself away from the comfort of this lovely property, you can visit Les Baux de Provence, only a few minutes away (a curiosity: the mineral Bauxite used in the production of Aluminium takes its name from this village!). This is an unspoilt, ancient, hilltop village and after some sightseeing you may want to try a culinary experience at the 1-star Michelin restaurant La Cabre d’Or, located on the route d’Arles just outside the village, or the similarly-rated L’Oustou de Beaumaniere. For a simpler lunch or dinner try the Brasserie Les Quentades in the village: they have a fabulous terrace for eating al fresco.

The house was extremely elegant and well appointed
The owner was lovely - the house was extremely elegant and well appointed in beyond perfect condition. A very sophisticated, luxurious welcoming property. Location was excellent and really enjoyed walking to dinner in the village square and stretching our legs to Baux en Provence in a morning was a genuinely uplifting experience.
