Nestled in the Provençal countryside, Maison Cocotier is the ideal base to discover the best that the region has to offer.

This gloriously bright house features ample amounts of natural light and the large terrace doors fill the living area with sunshine. With comfortable sofas and a home cinema, there’s room for everyone to spend a cosy evening in together playing cards or watching a film. There are five delightful bedrooms decorated with comfortable furnishings and the same bright and airy feel. The classic Provençal kitchen is spacious, well-equipped and perfect for those keen to prepare fresh home-cooked food. The shaded terrace dining area is an idyllic spot to enjoy an evening meal.

Step outdoors and you are met with a 7000m² oasis of grassy lawns, shady trees and vivid flowerbeds. Whether you fancy soaking up the sun on a deckchair, cooling off in the pool or reading a book under the cover of a leafy tree, these lush grounds offer the ultimate relaxation. Should you be tempted to venture further afield, then hop on one of the bikes provided. Younger guests will also delight in the ‘plage’-style shallow end of the pool, outdoor play area and trampoline. Towards the back of the gardens there is even a paddock which is occasionally home to the owner’s two horses. 

The much-loved city of Avignon (13km) is just a short drive from this charming villa and offers scenic squares, high-quality cuisine and a lively atmosphere. There are plenty of shops and markets to discover and a wander around Avignon’s winding, café-adorned streets will lead you to the city’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Pope’s Palace and the Saint Benezet Bridge. Nîmes (46km) rivals Avignon’s history with its own World Heritage Site, the Pont du Gard, and the city’s collection of Roman remains is also worth a visit.

This region is filled with delightful villages and visitors are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to discovering the immediate area. Popular St-Remy-de-Provence (13km) and picturesque Les Baux-de-Provence (20km) are within easy reach while Van Gogh’s beloved Arles (28km) is just slightly further away. Take a scenic walk through the olive groves, cypress hedges and orchards in the nearby Alpilles Natural Regional Park or stroll along one of the many vineyards that dominate the landscape. Horseriding and kayaking are also great ways to discover the stunning Provençal countryside.

Maison Cocotier is ideally situated in the heart of the stunning and immensely popular region of Provence. 

The nearest village is just 3km away and has a supermarket, a handful of restaurants and a selection of small jewellery boutiques, as well as a market on Tuesday mornings. There are indoor and outdoor tennis courts and a series of trails and paths that take you on a fauna-filled countryside ramble to neighbouring villages. There's also plenty to do in the nearby village of Graveson (5km), such as walking, playing tennis and visiting the Aquatic Garden "Aux Fleurs de l'Eau". Friday is market day in Graveson, with both a crafts market and farmers market selling fantastic local produce. 

There are a handful of charming and authentic villages within easy reach, all offering historic buildings, local markets and plenty of hidden gems when it comes to eating out. The popular town of St-Remy-de-Provence (13km) is worth a visit, as is the less well-known but equally as picturesque Saint-Etienne-du-Grès (14km). Les Baux-de-Provence (20km) is just a little further away and is commonly referred to as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Set atop a rocky crag, the medieval village features castle ruins and an ancient fortress, with spectacular views of the sprawling countryside below. Further south is the fascinating town of Arles (28km), where Vincent Van Gogh once lived. The town is full of Roman treasures, including the amphitheatre and crypts dating back to 46BC.

Avignon (13km) is just a 20-minute drive away and is a bustling and exciting city to visit. The cobbled streets are lined with boutique shops, lovely cafés and quality restaurants while the markets offer a great selection of local produce. In the evenings, head to the Bohemian Quarter by the Sorgue River for some drinks, live music and a laid-back ambiance. The city’s two World Heritage Sites, the Pope’s Palace and the Saint Benezet Bridge, provide an insight into Avignon’s past as well as a great photo opportunity! Nîmes (46km) is a little further away but is also a fantastic city to visit and the nearby Pont du Gard World Heritage Site (35km) is a breath-taking Roman aqueduct.

There are countless activities on offer throughout the region, including horseriding treks and kayaking in the Sorgue River. Immerse yourself in the Provencal countryside by strolling through a vineyard or by following one of the trails through the olive groves, orchards and cypress trees in the nearby Alpilles Natural Regional Park. Cycling is another fantastic way of exploring the area and there are plenty of routes for cyclists to explore.

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 Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There’s a wide range of different activities on offer in Provence, with something for all ages.

Horseriding is extremely popular throughout the region and there are numerous stables offering riding and trekking. Kayaking along the Sorgue is a fun activity for the whole family and those feeling brave enough can take a dip in the cool and extremely refreshing river! Hiring canoes is equally entertaining and is a fantastic way to see the Pont du Gard (35km) near Nîmes (46km).

Budding young artists will love visiting the museums in Arles and following the Van Gogh path around St-Remy-de-Provence (13km), with panels featuring descriptions of his famous paintings along the way.
