Provence family holiday home with pool - Maison Daudet is set in a private 2.5 acre park located in the famous "golden triangle" of Provence. Surrounded by lawns, olive, fruit and cypress trees and accessed via a gated drive lined with umbrella pines, this attractive and typical villa is within walking distance of the charming village of Paradou.
Maison Daudet has a cheerful, bright and spacious interior which is cool in summer and cosy in winter thanks to its thick stone walls, tile floors and exposed wooden beams. This villa offers comfortable, relaxing accommodation for all the family to enjoy, with the added bonus of a salt water pool.
Whether your priority is to visit the classic villages of Provence, to enjoy world-class French cuisine, to go sightseeing in nearby Arles and Avignon or to explore the beautiful Alpilles countryside, you will be very well catered for here. There are several Michelin-starred restaurants within three minutes of your front door, two of which within walking distance.
Moreover, Maison Daudet also boasts direct access to the regional Park of the Alpilles from its grounds. Here you can explore the trails on foot or horseback and discover the Roman ruins of Barbegal acqueduct & mill, remnants of the ancient Via Aurelia that ran between Rome and Arles, the historic Baux canal, and even the windmill at Fontvieille made famous by the author Alphonse Daudet. Also within walking distance of this Provence family holiday home with pool is the famous perched village of Les Baux de Provence, which is not to be missed. If you like riding, just outside the property there are two stables you can walk to from the villa. You can also walk to tennis courts and a soccer field.
There are weekly outdoor markets nearby in Maussane-les-Alpilles, St Remy de Provence and Arles, and the deeply-rooted tradition of bullfighting continues in Arles and Nimes. What a location!
