A short drive from St Rémy and the landscapes of Les Alpilles, stay at this elegant 5-bedroom country house with a glorious garden and swimming pool, ideal for visiting the many gems of Provence.

Following a sensitive renovation, the owners of Maison Centurion have created a beautiful home with style and character. The gracefully designed house has been furnished with flair and refinement featuring a blend of contemporary and antique pieces, whilst artwork and books add to the charming ambience. There is air-conditioning throughout and all five pretty bedrooms have their own modern bath/shower room.

Sit beneath the wisteria-clad pergola for al-fresco meals looking out towards the vast garden with all the sights and scents of Provence – cypress trees, boxwood, oleander and summer lavender. Dip into the gorgeous 17m long swimming pool as you soak up these idyllic surroundings.

Passing countryside scenery and farmland, a traditional village is only 3km away with its restaurants, café bars and little Thursday morning market. Driving south, you will soon reach bustling St Rémy-de-Provence (7km) famed for its Van Gogh heritage, art galleries, authentic restaurants and wonderful Wednesday morning market that attracts visitors from across the region.

Heading to the heart of Les Alpilles, passing olive groves, forests and idyllic limestone valleys, come across gems such as Les Baux-de-Provence, Maussane-les-Alpilles  and Eygalières. Slightly further afield, venture to the art galleries and Roman sites of Arles, the gateway to the Camargue, or soak up the rich history of Avignon, Nimes and Le Pont du Gard.

Meanwhile, admire the antique stores and waterways of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and canoe along the Sorgue near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. If you can find the time, potter around some of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ in the Luberon and sample the famous French wines of the Rhône valley – the activities seem endless during your time in this marvellous part of Provence.

Around a 10-minute drive north of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Maison Centurion is in the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France, a fine location for visiting Avignon, Nîmes and Rhône valley vineyards alongside the beautiful landscapes and villages of both Les Alpilles and the Luberon.

The house is in a rural setting surrounded by farmland and countryside with a couple of neighbouring houses. A small traditional village is 5 minutes by car with a handful of restaurants/cafes as well as other useful amenities and a Thursday morning market. Other local villages include Eyragues (4km), Graveson (5.5km) and Châteaurenard (9km) whilst the historic riverside town of Tarascon (14km) is also easily reached. Around this part of Provence admire olive groves, orchards, farming land and cypress trees, on the edge of the Parc naturel régional des Alpilles.

Heading south, bustling Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (7km) is the gateway to Les Alpilles, a town known for its art galleries and Van Gogh heritage. Dine out in atmospheric restaurants and soak up the ambience of the wonderful Wednesday morning market where regional traders showcase a wealth of delicious produce and artisan crafts.

Driving through the idyllic scenery of Les Alpilles, visit hilltop Les Baux-de-Provence (14km), one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, enjoy lunch on the village square in Maussane-les-Alpilles (17km), follow the windmill walking route near Fontvieille (18km) and celebrity-spot in idyllic Eygalières (20km). Walk or hike through olive groves, forests and glorious limestone valleys.

Another lovely day out is L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (32km), famed for its antique stores and Sunday morning brocante. Follow hiking trails near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (37km) or canoe/kayak along the Sorgue River before venturing to the Luberon with its iconic perched villages – Gordes, Ménerbes and Roussillon are less than an hour away.

Meanwhile, there are the great historic cities of Avignon (20km) and Nîmes (44km), the foothills of Mont Ventoux (Bédoin is an hour away by car, a mecca for cyclists) and the vineyards of the Rhône valley with the wineries of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (33km) within a 45-minute drive north.

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!

With historic towns and cities within easy reach and the landscapes of Les Alpilles so close, this is a fine location for families travelling with children.

Animal lovers note that the charming little farm, L'Arche de Méo, is less than 15km away where you can feed the animals and enjoy a picnic in pretty surroundings. Alternatively, the much larger Zoo Barben is around an hour by car, not far from Salon-de-Provence.

Young artists can follow Van Gogh trails in both nearby St Rémy de Provence and Arles before visiting galleries and exhibitions in both artistic towns. Carrières des Lumières, near Les Baux-de-Provence, projects artwork on to quarry walls accompanied by music.

Discover tree-top adventures near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse alongside canoeing/kayaking along the Sorgue river and other summer activities. In the other direction, Fontvieille is home to the fun Vélorail des Alpilles where you pedal open-air vehicles along historic railway tracks passing beautiful Provençal scenery en route.

If visiting the cities of Avignon and Nimes with youngsters, look out for the tourist road trains that tour the main sights. Roman history enthusiasts should also spend time admiring Le Pont du Gard (35km), perfect for riverside picnics, paddling or even canoeing or kayaking beneath the magnificent aqueduct, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
