Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

Champs de Lavande is a traditional villa set in glorious grounds with views towards Les Alpilles from its swimming pool and south-facing terrace. Just a 3km drive from the heart of Saint-Rémy, this is a great location for discovering the many gems of this alluring part of Provence.

This inviting holiday home sleeps up to 8 guests across its four bedrooms with a double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and a second en suite double and two twins, plus a third bathroom, upstairs. The attractive lounge is spacious and leads straight through to the rustic kitchen-diner whilst pretty French windows open out to the terrace.

It feels like your very own corner of authentic Provence outside as you gaze towards Les Alpilles in the distance. The fragrance of lavender, rosemary and thyme add to the tranquil ambience and you can help yourself to seasonal cherries and apricots from the orchard. Look out at the olive trees as you lunch in the shade beside the summer kitchen, then cool off in the swimming pool in such picturesque surroundings.

Just over a 5-minute drive away you will reach the heart of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a bustling historic town known for its art galleries, Van Gogh trail, charming restaurants and wonderful Wednesday morning market that attracts visitors from across Provence. Picture-perfect villages close by include Eygalières, Maussane-les-Alpilles and the famous hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Try olive oil, cheese and honey in nearby farms as well as local wine or venture a little further towards the vineyards of the Luberon and Rhône valley. Experience the history of Avignon and Nimes, the beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and the antiques of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue before following yet more of Van Gogh’s footsteps in Arles.

After a day out exploring, return to Champs de Lavande to dine al-fresco beneath the stars accompanied by good wine and the sound of the cicadas on warm summer evenings in Provence.

In the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France, Champs de Lavande lies just off a country lane around 3km north-east of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, part of Les Alpilles Regional Natural Park and only 20km from Avignon. Arrive by plane into Nîmes or Marseille Airport or take the fast direct train from Paris-Gare-de-Lyon to Avignon TGV.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (3km) is a bustling Provençal town home to terrace cafes, restaurants, art galleries, a range of shops and the famous Wednesday morning market which attracts visitors from across the region – head there early to truly soak up the vibrant ambience. In the height of the summer, a Tuesday evening Creators Market takes place where local artists and creators showcase and sell their wares.

History lovers can visit the archaeological site of Glanum just south of the town, not far from Saint-Paul de Mausole monastery where Vincent Van Gogh spent the last period of his life. As you walk, hike, cycle or horse-ride through the nearby landscapes you can admire the scenery that has inspired so many artists over the years. Art enthusiasts should visit the galleries of Arles (28km), just over half an hour away by car, where Van Gogh painted ‘Café Terrace at Night’.

In the heart of Les Alpilles, Les Baux-de-Provence (13km) is one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ with its perched château surrounded by woodland and olive groves below, a paradise for walkers. Food connoisseurs will adore the weekly market, gastronomic shops and restaurants of Maussane-les-Alpilles (13km) or dine at Le Bistrot du Paradou (14km) following the footsteps of Rick Stein. Hilltop Eygalières (13km) is yet another idyllic village not to be missed close by.

A little further afield, the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon (20km) can be visited for a wonderful day out or venture towards the Roman aqueduct, Le Pont du Gard (42km), and Nîmes (47km) in the Gard department.

In the other direction, nature lovers will appreciate the beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (34km) where you can make the most of the canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue River. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (31km) is full of Provençal charm, especially loved for its antique stores and Sunday morning brocante, one of the most famous markets in southern France.

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!

St-Rémy is a great base as it is within easy reach of many wonderful family-friendly places across Provence and beyond.

Young art-lovers can follow the Van Gogh trail around St-Rémy, ending at Centre Culturel Saint-Paul de Mausole, or simply potter around the historic town visiting galleries and soaking up the artistic vibe. Smaller children will love letting off steam at the playground on Place Joseph-Mauron.

If visiting Avignon for the day, look out for the tourist road-train that tours the historic sights or hire bikes and cycle across to the Rhône’s largest island, île de la Barthelasse, where you can enjoy beautiful city views from the other side of the river.

Nimes is another gem for history lovers young and old whilst the magnificent Pont du Gard is a great place for riverside picnics and canoeing. There are further canoeing/kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue River near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse as well as a popular tree-top adventure centre and other family activities in the summer.

Feed animals at the lovely little farm, L'Arche de Méo, only a 15-minute drive away, or spend the day at the larger Zoo Barben close to Salon-de-Provence, just under an hour by car.
