Spend joyful summer holidays with loved ones at this inviting Provençal home surrounded by wonderful gardens and woodland, only 3km from one of France’s 'Plus Beaux Villages', Les Baux-de-Provence.

Le Bassin Turquoise is an authentic abode which will appeal to guests looking for charm, space and glorious surroundings in the heart of Les Alpilles Regional Nature Park. Inside, the lounge and dining space opens straight out to the south-facing terrace with ample room for outdoor living overlooking the lovely lawn and olive trees. A little path leads to a gorgeous swimming pool surrounded by terracotta pots filled with summer colour, plenty of sun-loungers and a superb pool house and barbecue.

On the ground floor the four double bedrooms are simply styled with characterful touches, two of them opening up to the main terrace, whilst upstairs an air-conditioned master double has its own little patio just perfect for a glass of Côtes de Provence looking out over the pretty tiled roofs. Stroll through the garden and discover the sixth bedroom in the little wooden cabin, perhaps the perfect hideout for an adventurous teen for a night or two.

Indeed, families are welcomed here with lots for every age from the play area outside with its slide, swing and trampoline to the cool converted garage where you will find the games rooms of dreams with a pinball machine, drums, table football, juke box and one of two billiard tables.

Wander around the shady woodland with towering pines, soak up the sense of wilderness and tranquillity around you. Find a wooden bench for a moment of peace or gather with friends in one of the many areas designed for al-fresco relaxation and summer lounging.

Not too far away is the glorious hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence – visit first thing before visitors flock from across the region to discover its beauty and charm. A little further, Maussane-les-Alpilles is another picture-perfect village ideal for lunch in one of its excellent restaurants or drive up to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence with its weekly market, art galleries as well as bistros and see where Van Gogh spent his final days.

Discover the landscapes that inspired Van Gogh whether exploring on bike, foot or horse-back and come across idyllic olive groves, vineyards, endless pine forests and pretty old villages. Then there’s Arles and Avignon to consider or even the mesmerising scenery of the Luberon in this fascinating and breathtakingly beautiful part of southern France.

Le Bassin Turquoise is set in two hectares of gardens and woodland, otherwise surrounded by hilly landscapes so typical of Les Alpilles Regional Nature Park, only 3km from Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

As you explore the Vallée des Baux you are surrounded by endless olive groves, hilly pine forests and picture-perfect old villages so typical of Provence. Les Baux-de-Provence, just 3km by car, is certainly one of the most loved hilltop villages of this region and is visited by tourists from across the area who come to discover its historic charm and visit the impressive fortified château. Explore Baux’s narrow lanes coming across picturesque squares, little shops and admire tremendous valley views from its perched position.

There are some wonderful walking trails around the village and beyond as well as opportunities to visit olive farms to sample the excellent oil produced in this area and other regional delights. Les Alpilles also offers fantastic opportunities for cycling, hiking, mountain biking and horse-riding.

Maussane-les-Alpilles, about 5km away, is a lovely place to go for lunch in one of the village restaurants whether you fancy a pizza in a relaxed setting or choose to dine in a Michelin starred establishment. Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, 10km heading north, also has a fine reputation for its cuisine with a number of bistros alongside art galleries, a Van Gogh trail and a vibrant weekly market on a Wednesday morning.

As well as discovering other idyllic villages across Les Alpilles, another great day out is the historic city of Avignon (30km), home of two UNESCO World Heritage sites (the Palais des Papes and Le Pont d’Avignon) as well as great markets, atmospheric wine-bars and yet more excellent restaurants. Van Gogh’s beloved Arles is also just half an hour by car or head west towards Nîmes (47km) with its world-famous Roman sites.

If you have time, drive across to the mesmerising Luberon villages to visit the most stunning hilltop villages such as Gordes, Ménerbes and Roussillon. This region is a mecca for rock-climbers, especially around Buoux, and of course there are endless walks, cycle trails and plenty of vineyards for wine-tasting.

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Surrounded by gorgeous Provençal countryside ideal for long walks, hiking, horse-riding, pony trekking and rock-climbing, Les Alpilles offers a variety of experiences for every age.

Art-lovers can follow the Van Gogh trails around either Arles or St-Rémy and view the nearby landscapes that inspired the famous artist. Avignon is a fine day out and youngsters may appreciate its little road train that tours you around the city’s major sights.

Canoeing and kayaking are possible either along the Sorgue river at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or near the impressive Pont du Gard, close to Nîmes. Nîmes is of course also famous for its Roman sites which will fascinate young historians, or even closer to home visit the archaeological site of Glanum near St-Rémy.

There’s also the model railway centre just south of Carpentras, Le JardiTrain, whilst adventurous families will find tree-top adventure centres in the Luberon or close to Salon-de-Provence. The Zoo La Barben is another popular day out with hundreds of animals across many hectares of land.
