Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome

Gaze at the olive groves and wonderful landscapes as you swim in the beautiful swimming pool at Le Champ d’Olives. This superb villa offers old-world Provençal charm alongside an abundance of 21st century features set in the stunning Alpilles, just a short drive from idyllic villages and towns including Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Only recently built, the owners have created a traditional yet stylish ambience across this characterful five-bedroom maison with wood beamed ceilings and exposed stonework, making the most of the bucolic views through the picture book windows that bring light into the home. You’ll find chic furnishings alongside contemporary amenities such as underfloor cooling downstairs, a home cinema system and Bang & Olufsen speakers. 

Outside, it’s not just the views that will impress you. Inviting terraces in the shade overlooking fields of olive trees, a decked sun terrace, an al-fresco dining area and a boules pitch; this is a wonderful place to spend long summer holidays in Provence. The terraced gardens are full of colour with swathes of lavender and sweet-scented roses and the countryside around you will take your breath away.

Surrounded by five hectares of olive groves, it’s no wonder that the local village, only a ten-minute drive away, is also known for its olive oil heritage with an original mill still operating and some of the country’s finest oils produced here. You’ll also find brilliant places to eat from pizzerias to Michelin starred restaurants, boulangeries and some lovely shops selling great local produce. Just a few minutes further by car and you’ll reach one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Les Baux-de-Provence with its incredible views across the undulating hills and mountains of Les Alpilles.

Saint-Rémy is also nearby with its Van Gogh connections and atmospheric Wednesday morning market or explore a little further afield to Arles and Avignon. This area offers nature, history and charm and Le Champ d'Olives epitomises this utterly enchanting part of Provence.

In Les Alpilles Natural Regional Park, Le Champ d’Olives is surrounded by five hectares of incredible olive groves and the views are spectacular. It’s around a ten-minute drive to a charming village which specialises in olive oil production.

The local village is home to some excellent places to eat including Michelin-starred establishments as well as more down to earth bistros and a pizzeria. There are also a handful of lovely shops such as a choice of boulangeries, a couple of grocery stores, a fishmonger and a butcher.

This area is especially famous for its olive oil and you can visit working farms or the olive oil presses to experience how the oil is made, learn about the history of this process and of course sample the product, some of the finest olive oils in France.

Les Alpilles offers wonderful opportunities for hiking, cycling, mountain biking and horse-riding through the beautiful and varied landscapes. There are also rock-climbing opportunities as well as the more leisurely pursuit of golf with stunning courses across the region, including the Domaine de Manville near Les-Baux-de-Provence. The local village also offers tennis courts to hire.

There are also many amazing villages, towns and cities to explore. Start with Les Baux-de-Provence, just under fifteen minutes away by car, where you can dine in excellent restaurants in a wonderful setting in this incredibly picturesque village. Explore the narrow lanes, admire the village château or just rest and enjoy a coffee or glass of local wine in a pretty café.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, around 20 minutes away, is also a popular town to visit with its Wednesday morning market, charming restaurants and cafes and its Van Gogh trail (after all, this is where Van Gogh painted world-famous Starry Night amongst many others). Also a short drive away is Eygalières (20km), another archetypal Provencal village which is so beautiful that a number of celebrities have chosen to buy houses there.

The small city of Avignon is just to the north of Les Alpilles region, a great place to visit for its fascinating history, incredible architecture including Saint Benezet Bridge and the Pope’s Palace, two UNESCO world heritage sites and also the lovely markets, restaurants, bars and overall charming ambience.

The wonderful city of Arles, to the south, was also loved by Vincent Van Gogh and is also very near the beautiful Camargue region, around an hour away, where you can see wild horses and pink flamingos across the stunning landscapes of land and sea.

A little further afield, visit some of the enchanting Provencal villages of the Luberon region, sample some fine Côtes du Rhône wines (Châteauneuf-du-Pape is under an hour away) or canoe along the river towards the great town of L'Isle Sur La Sorgue, known for its antique shops and great Sunday morning brocante.

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!

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

Children will love all the activities that this region offers such as tennis in the local village, horse-riding nearby as well as beautiful walking trails, cycling, mountain biking and even rock climbing across Les Alpilles.

Some of the local towns and cities will especially appeal to families. Spend a day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence enjoying the Wednesday morning market, having lunch in a café under the plane trees and then following the Van Gogh trail around the town. Afterwards, head a few minutes south to the archaeological site of Glanum, a must for history lovers.

Avignon is also lovely for families with its many markets and wonderful architecture, a lot of which can be seen from the little road train that tours around the city.

Spend the day canoeing or just pack a picnic to have by the river the Pont du Gard, a UNESCO world heritage site, near Nimes. The charming town of L’Isle Sur La Sorgue also has canoeing and kayaking in an idyllic setting.
