Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids
Pets on Request

Close to one of France’s prettiest villages, L’Artisanale exudes bygone character alongside artistic flair, set in the most glorious Provençal gardens just over 2km from Les Baux-de-Provence.

Built with local stone keeping its traditional interiors cool, this charming holiday home dates back to the 17th century and parts of its original chapel still remain. This is authentic Provence at its best with rustic style adding character alongside modern touches for the comfort of guests. Admire works of art and sculptures as well as a wealth of fascinating books and soak up the historic ambience of the courtyard and terraces.

With its attractive and sometimes quirky layout, up to 8-10 guests are made welcome here with an assortment of five bedrooms including the air-conditioned double upstairs with a TV and DVD player, reached via stone steps and the prettiest of balconies, and the two enchanting bedrooms on the ground floor which showcase some of the heritage of this charming house.

From the upper balcony and terrace, perch yourself on a bench and gaze towards the surrounding landscapes of Les Alpilles. Then wander down the steps and enjoy lazing in the 15m long swimming pool, set amongst the 2.8 hectares of wonderful grounds. Make the most of one of the many terraces, listen to the trickle of the water fountain and stroll around the garden looking out for lavender, oleander and fruit trees beside cypresses and pines. Kids will love playing in the treehouse whilst grown-ups settle for a relaxed game of pétanque.

L’Artisanale is in such a tranquil position, yet it’s only a short drive to the idyllic village of Les Baux-de-Provence, officially classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ with its medieval lanes, historic monuments, pretty restaurants and impressive château. Sample some of the excellent olive oil in nearby Maussane-les-Alpilles, soak up the artistic ambience of Saint-Rémy and look out for A-list celebrities in Eygalières, all gems of the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles.

Avignon, Arles and Aix-en-Provence are other fantastic days out or venture towards the Luberon with its iconic perched villages, vineyards and yet more stunning scenery of Provence. On your adventures, look out for seasonal produce from inviting delicatessens and farmer’s markets to take back to your rustic terrace for al-fresco dining beneath the century-old shady tree in this bucolic Provençal setting.

In the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles, just over 2km from Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, L’Artisanale enjoys a rural setting close to some of Provence’s prettiest villages and towns.

It’s only a 5-minute drive to the perched village of Les-Baux-de-Provence, loved by visitors from across the world. Explore the village’s medieval lanes, coming across charming squares, historic monuments, idyllic fountains, inviting restaurants and artisan shops. Visit the impressive Château des Baux-de-Provence and admire the breath-taking views of the valley – you can even see as far as Arles and the Camargue on a clear day.

Maussane-les-Alpilles (4.5km) is also a short drive away, home to a small supermarket, boulangerie and a number of excellent restaurants. Some of France’s finest olive oil is produced in the surrounding olive groves (nearby Mouriès is also known for its olive oil) and it’s a wonderful spot for a relaxing lunch on a picturesque restaurant terrace.

It goes without saying there are many incredible walking and hiking opportunities as well as horse-riding, pony-trekking, mountain biking and rock-climbing across the glorious Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles. Water lovers should head to Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (48km) for canoeing and kayaking along the Sorgue river whilst keen cyclists have so many trails across Les Alpilles, the Luberon, the Vaucluse plains and even as far as the foothills of famous Mont Ventoux (Bédoin is just over an hour by car).

Visit vineyards to sample the wines produced in this part of France (there are also many excellent wineries in the neighbouring Luberon region and of course along the Rhône valley) and visit farms or markets to buy fresh, seasonal produce from Provence. You’ll find a market everyday across the region including artistic Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (9km) on a Wednesday morning, Fontvieille is on a Monday and Friday and picture-perfect Eygalières also on a Friday morning.  A little further afield, an atmospheric brocante takes place on a Sunday morning in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (42km) alongside its usual bustling Farmer’s market.

Arles (20km), Avignon (30km) and Aix-en-Provence (68km) are all wonderful days out, as is Nîmes with its rich Roman heritage, reached in under an hour by car. The perched villages of the Luberon also await with gems such as Ménerbes, Roussillon and Oppède le Vieux, all around an hour’s drive.

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!

Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles offers a number of activities from family walks and cycling opportunities to horse-riding, pony-trekking and rock-climbing.

When you first visit nearby Les Baux-de-Provence, pick up a ‘treasure map’ from the tourist office and follow the trail as you look out for the many historic monuments across this idyllic place. Also, just outside the village, the Carrières de Lumières is a popular family attraction which projects artwork on to quarry walls with an impressive light and sound show.

For families who love outdoor adventures, you can hire kayaks and canoes along the Sorgue river in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or spend time at the tree-top activity centre in this beautiful part of Provence, also popular with walkers.

For a change of scene slightly further north, visit the interesting caves at Grottes de Thouzon, admire the model railways at Jarditrain or have fun on one of the many rides at Parc Spirou, an amusement park just north-east of Avignon.
