Weekly price guide: £14580-£17010
Property Ref: VIL2690
Located at the foot of the Alpilles hills near a beautiful lake (less than one kilometre away), the villa is decorated in soft pale colours making it bright and airy in all rooms. The large open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with high beamed ceiling and patio window to the terrace are relaxing, ambient areas.
There are five bedrooms, all on the ground floor plus an interior patio with a large ancient fountain. Outside there is a large landscaped park with numerous olive trees, lavender, jasmines, various aromatic plants, a large swimming pool measuring 20 m x by 4.5 m and a pool house. There is also a large terrace with pergola and a seating area perfect for balmy evenings dining al fresco.
This area of Provence boasts history and beautiful scenery not only of the Alpilles hills but also of the ruined castle which dominates the landscape surrounding Les Baux de Provence. The castle can be traced back to the 10th century until the local people finally destroyed it in 1632 to bring an end to the centuries of conflicts, revolts, sieges and wars of religion, which had taken place there. Today, quaint artisan shops and restaurants line the tiny cobbled streets. A wider range of amenities can be found at Mausanne les Alpilles and at St-Remy-de-Provence, birthplace of Nostradamus, both of which are within easy reach of this villa.
Twenty five minutes drive north from this Les Baux de Provence villa is the medieval Papal city of Avignon, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and site of the world' s biggest gothic palaces. The city of Arles is just to the south with an impressive Roman arena, once holding 20,000 spectators. This is the gateway to the wetlands of the Camargue with its diverse wildlife ranging from pink flamingos to white horses and black fighting bulls.
