Contemporary charm meets Provençal character at this beautiful villa in Les Alpilles close to the delightful villages of Maussane-les-Alpilles of Les Baux-de-Provence.

With a vast open view of fields and meadows, soak up the beauty of this region as you relax in the wonderful grounds with an elegant swimming pool and fountain surrounded by the colours and summer aromas of Provence. The covered terrace is an idyllic place for shady al-fresco lunches and the outdoor lounge is positioned near the wood barbecue – enjoy an evening apéritif as the chef in your family prepares a feast.

The interiors of Maison De Marbre are just as impressive – the ground floor space is all about open-plan living with a contemporary kitchen alongside stylish furnishings and wide doors opening out to the terrace. Upstairs find four chic bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, including the inviting master double, then there is a fifth bedroom in a separate annexe close to the swimming pool.

Pass seemingly endless olive trees as you drive five minutes to the local village, Maussane-les-Alpilles, famed for producing some of France’s finest extra virgin olive oil (alongside nearby Mouriès). Potter around Maussane’s little shops and experience the Thursday morning market before coming across a picturesque café terrace on the main square for lunch. Gastronomes note that this part of Provence is known for its excellent restaurants - Le Bistro du Paradou, for example, is within a 10-minute drive.

Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s ’Plus Beaux Villages’, is only 6km away whilst other highlights of Les Alpilles include hilltop Eygalières, authentic Fontvieille and the artistic town of Saint-Rémy, home to an atmospheric Wednesday morning market.

A little further afield, embrace the history of Avignon, visit the galleries of Arles, admire the landscapes of the Camargue or venture to the Luberon for incredible perched villages, vineyards, orchards and yet more magnificent scenery of Provence.

Maison De Marbre is located in the heart of Les Alpilles Natural Regional Park, a short drive from the charming village of Maussane-les-Alpilles. Fly into the airports near Avignon, Nimes or Marseille. If arriving by train, Avignon TGV station is 32km away (direct services from Paris to Avignon take 2 hours 45 minutes).

Just off the road that connects Maussane-les-Alpilles to Eygalières/ Mouriès, it is easy to reach amenities within a 3km drive. Maussane-les-Alpilles is an authentic and picturesque village with café terraces, restaurants, a small Spar supermarket and lovely shops selling local products such as olive oil, wine, cheese, charcuterie etc.

Surrounded by olive groves, both Maussane and Mouriès (6km) are famed for producing some of France’s finest extra virgin olive oil and you will also find other delicious regional produce including honey, goat’s cheese and wine.  Don’t miss Maussane’s Thursday morning market and find time to stop for a coffee or meal out in the tiny village of Paradou (home of Le Bistro du Paradou).  

Across Les Alpilles, Eygalières (15km) is a picture-perfect hilltop village where A-list celebrities have bought houses to escape the French Riviera paparazzi whilst Fontvieille (11km) is home to the iconic windmill, Moulin de Daudet. Even closer, Les Baux-de-Provence (6km) is classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Artistic Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (11km), where Van Gogh once lived, hosts a wonderful Wednesday morning market and is a must-visit for art lovers with galleries and exhibitions. Arles (20km) is another highlight of the region for art and history enthusiasts, also the gateway to the Camargue.

Heading north-east, explore the undulating landscapes of the Luberon with idyllic perched villages such as Gordes (46km), Ménerbes (45km) and Roussillon (56km) all within an hour. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (41km) is a gorgeous day out thanks to its antique stores, waterways and Sunday morning brocante, as is Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (45km), a paradise for hiking, canoeing and kayaking.

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

A cot and a highchair can be requested when staying at Maison De Marbre. Families will especially appreciate the open-plan living space, pétanque and the lovely garden. It’s great being just a short drive from the local village for shops and restaurants.

The charm of hilltop Les Baux-de-Provence will appeal to young history lovers thanks to its medieval centre and chateau – pick up a ‘treasure map’ from the village’s tourist office.

Carrières des Lumières is less than 10 minutes by car where great works of art are projected on to quarry walls accompanied by light and sound. Art enthusiasts can also follow the Van Gogh trails and visit the many exhibitions in both Saint-Rémy and Arles.

Meanwhile, discover canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue River near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (45km) or beneath the magnificent Roman aqueduct, Le Pont du Gard (42km). Furthermore, there is a tree-top activity centre with trails for a range of ages near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse alongside other summer activities close to the river.

During your stay, check the opening dates/times of Vélorail des Alpilles (10km) where you can pedal open-air vehicles along a former railway line passing wonderful landscapes. Elsewhere, L'Arche de Méo is a charming little farm around a 20-minute drive away or venture east to visit the many animals at Zoo Barben, just beyond Salon-de-Provence.
