Not far from the Rhône River, Bastide Du Monde is an attractive 4-bedroom house set in lovely gardens with a swimming pool, brilliantly located for visiting the historic gems of Avignon, Le Pont du Gard and Nîmes.

In a rural setting, spending time at this inviting home allows you to relax in the authentic surroundings of Provence. With exposed stone walls, the mas exudes Provençal charm yet its interiors are contemporary and stylish. We love the spacious lounge with its sumptuous sofa and chairs looking out towards the garden whilst the bar is the ideal spot for an evening apéritif. Feel right at home in the large kitchen-diner or take advantage of the wonderful summer kitchen for al-fresco meals by the barbecue.

Across the top two floors, find four bedrooms sleeping up to 10 guests, all with queen or king-size double beds (one with two extra pull-out beds) and en suite bath or shower rooms, alongside a cosy office. The décor here is modern, tasteful and home-from-home, using the perfect blend of simple and natural materials with great comfort in mind.

The garden is a pleasant spot for lazing by the swimming pool, snoozing in the Balinese bed or seeking shade beneath the south-facing terrace. It feels so peaceful with just farmland and a few other houses dotted around. Follow the locals’ footsteps and drive to the nearby village, around 3km away, for a meal in one of the restaurant-bars and take time to wander around the old village traditionally known for its basket weaving.

For fantastic days out, head in one direction towards the UNESCO World Heritage site of Le Pont Du Gard for canoeing, kayaking or picnics by the river’s edge, and visit the historic city of Nîmes with its rich Roman heritage. The small city of Avignon also awaits, home to Le Palais des Papes and Le Pont d’Avignon, and experience its vibrant restaurants, wine bars and markets.

To the south, discover the beauty of Les Alpilles from the art galleries of Saint-Rémy to the olive groves surrounding Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. This region is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and keen gourmands with delightful weekly markets and charming restaurants from authentic bistros to Michelin starred establishments.

Closer to home, soak up the history of Tarascon, a characterful town by the banks of the Rhône River, and follow the hiking trails through the La Montagnette hills passing pines, cypresses, olive trees and Provençal herbs, perhaps as far as the impressive Abbaye Saint-Michel de Frigolet where you can enjoy the stunning landscapes around you.

Bastide Du Monde is on the border of the Gard and Bouches-du-Rhône departments, close to the Rhône River, around 20km south-west of Avignon. This is a fantastic location for not only visiting the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon but also appreciating the beauty of Les Alpilles and soaking up the Roman history of Le Pont du Gard and Nîmes.

There is a traditional village around 3km by car, known for its basket weaving and home to a pizzeria, bar and good sized supermarket. There are further shops and restaurants in Tarascon (9km) by the banks of the Rhône, a characterful riverside town that is one of the oldest in southern France. Walk around its narrow lanes admiring its rich heritage and soak up the ambience of the Tuesday morning market. Just across the river is historic Beaucaire (10km), classified as a Town of Art and History in France.

Within half an hour you will find yourself in the artistic town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (25km), famed for its Van Gogh associations and vibrant Wednesday morning market. Perhaps combine with a stroll around hilltop Eygalières (37km) or lunch out in Maussane-les-Alpilles (27km) before visiting Les Baux-de-Provence (27km), one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ surrounded by the most beautiful landscapes of hills, olive groves and woodland. Les Alpilles offers ample opportunities for hiking, rock-climbing, horse-riding and other outdoor adventures.    

In the other direction, the Roman aqueduct Le Pont du Gard (26km) is an incredible spot for canoeing, kayaking or simply enjoying a picnic by the river. Meanwhile, the city of Nîmes (38km) is a joy to explore with its wonderfully preserved Roman ruins.

Keen walkers can hike through La Montagnette hills surrounded by Provençal herbs, pines, cypress and olive trees. Visit the impressive Abbaye Saint-Michel de Frigolet (11km) and try the liquor sold in the abbey’s shop that used to be produced on site in the 19th century.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

This is a great location for visiting the historic cities of Avignon and Nîmes as well as appreciating the scenery and outdoor activities of Les Alpilles and beyond.

Start off in Avignon, perhaps hopping on the tourist road train for a city tour of its two UNESCO World Heritage sites. Alternatively, hire bikes and admire Avignon's views from the Rhône’s largest river island, île de la Barthelasse.

There is also a tourist road train in Nimes - stop off at the wonderfully preserved Arenes de Nîmes and La Maison Carrée, a must for young historians, then take a stroll in the Jardin de la Fontaine to view the Temple of Diana. Le Pont du Gard, another UNESCO World Heritage site, is also within easy reach, a stunning place for riverside picnics, paddling, canoeing and kayaking.

Driving south-east, follow the Van Gogh art trail in St-Remy-de-Provence and feed the farm animals at L'Arche de Méo, around half an hour. The landscapes of Les Alpilles offer opportunities for horse-riding, biking, hiking and rock-climbing.
