Just a short stroll via country lanes from the archetypal Provençal village of St-Rémy and only 30 minutes from Avignon, Maison Coquette is a beautiful home in which to spend your holidays relaxing with loved ones.

Dating back to 1850, the owners have recently restored this home with style and elegance throughout. With wood-beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls, the Provençal ambiance prevails and fine furnishings and beautiful historic pieces are featured throughout the home. Sleeping up to eleven guests across five bedrooms, including a poolside annexe, the communal space is vast with a cosy office and delightful small salon as well as the more spacious living room with its grand open-hearth fireplace leading through to the convivial kitchen-diner, a wonderful place to create a feast for family and friends.

Outside the glorious terraces offer space for relaxation in the sun whether lazing in a hammock or sipping your morning coffee surrounded by the scents of Provence. An impressive pool house, which features the fifth bedroom, has delightful covered terrace with a summer kitchen and barbecue where long lunches can be spent enjoying local produce discovered at nearby markets. Not forgetting the heated swimming pool surrounded by decking and sun-loungers.

It’s just a 20-minute or so stroll past neighbouring villas into the heart of St-Rémy where you can dine fabulously at one of the many village restaurants from down-to-earth bistros to Michelin starred establishments. Wander through the narrow lanes of this charming Provençal village and discover artists at work in their galleries or follow the trail of Vincent Van Gogh; this is the place where he pained ‘Starry Nights’.

In the stunning Les Alpilles National Park, this is a remarkable area of vineyards, olive groves and landscapes of sunflowers and lavender. There are idyllic trails for hikers and cyclists, golf in beautiful surroundings and horse-riding through nearby countryside. Not forgetting the wealth of wonderful places to visit from Arles and Avignon to Gordes and the spectacular Luberon region nearby.

Maison Coquette is the perfect place to soak up the Provençal ambience whether you are lazing by the pool, dining with friends or family or exploring the captivating region around you.

Maison Coquette is set just outside the heart of idyllic St-Rémy in the stunning Les Alpilles National Park. It’s just a 5-minute drive or just over a 1km stroll (via country lanes) into the centre of the village, famous for being popular with artists, many of whom display their works of art in one of the village galleries. Vincent Van Gogh created more than 150 paintings during his time in St-Rémy including the famous ‘Starry Night’.

There is a great variety of places to eat in the village from charming bistros to Michelin starred restaurants. Don’t miss the lovely food market on a Wednesday morning where you can pick up all sorts of wonderful local produce made in the region.

Les Apilles National Park is a glorious region full of wonderful villages, groves of olive trees and plenty of vineyards; there are lots of opportunities to visit and tour local olive presses in Mausanne (11km), a picturesque village well worth visiting for a spot of lunch.

Baux-de-Provence (10km), one of France’s acclaimed Plus Beaux Villages with its impressive chateau built on the rocks and Van Gogh’s precious Arles (33km), are both within a short drive. Gordes (40km) is yet another one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months.
You can also head north to the small city of Avignon (22km) with its two UNESCO world heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge.  Explore the narrow streets, take a road-train ride to view the sights and then dine in one of the lovely restaurants. The covered market offers all sorts of delights or head to the weekend farmers, flower and flea markets for wonderful local produce.

There is both horse-riding and golf within a short drive and both the immediate and wider area are a walkers and cyclists paradise with stunning countryside and landscapes of lavender and sunflowers. Older children will love kayaking in the Sorgue and there are plenty of other family friendly activities throughout the region from model railways, open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.

  • Charming stopover in Provence

    on 09/01/2021

    Magnificent house located a few steps from the center of Saint Rémy, beautiful swimming pool and charming, quiet garden. A tastefully furnished and decorated character house offering an excellent level of service (comfort, equipment, privacy). A house full of charm to live in both winter and summer. A special mention for the conviviality of the dining room/kitchen area (fireplace, rotisserie, piano) which will charm all gourmets! Friendly welcome and charming owner.. Perfect!
