Ideal for Kids

There is character and rusticity abound in this renovated 17th century hunting lodge just outside Mausanne-les-Alpilles. Situated on a verdant hill in the midst of olive groves, it is easily accessible to the delightful landscapes of Les Alpilles and the Camargue. 

The air-conditioned house has a quirky layout which gives plenty of opportunity to show off its feature combinations of stone, wood, white plaster and curved archways. The hall, kitchen-diner, living room with stone fireplace are all situated on the main floor.

There are four double bedrooms on different levels each side of the living area, one with a dressing room and another with an additional single bed. You may have to draw lots for the en suite fifth double bedroom which is in a popular garden annexe opposite the pool, perfect for a midnight swim beneath the stars.

The tree and flower-filled garden has pretty south-facing al fresco terraces perfect for soaking up the sun and sheltering from the Mistral. The lovely views are sure to tempt you to a walk down the hill towards the olive groves below.

Maison Huguette is ideally situated for visiting the delights of this region of Provence and is only a five minute drive from the centre of the pleasant village of Mausanne-les-Alpilles, nestled at the foot of the spectacular landscapes of Les Alpilles. Immerse yourself in its Provençal lifestyle as you explore its shops, restaurants, weekly market and taste the excellent olive oil produced at the two mills.

There are so many outdoor activities to enjoy in Les Alpilles as well as visits to some of the idyllic hill villages such as Les-Baux-de-Provence and Eygalières. Don’t miss the famous Wednesday market and artistic ambience of vibrant St-Rémy-de-Provence, where artist Vincent Van Gogh created his masterpiece “Starry Night”.

The historic city of Arles is easily accessible and is a gateway to the iconic wild white horses, black bulls and pink flamingos of the Camargue, an amazing landscape of salt marshes with plenty of opportunity for more outdoor adventure while nearby Saint-Martin de Crau is situated in a vast and protected natural landscape of wild steppes. Despite so much local beauty, if you are still yearning for the beaches of the Mediterranean, they are less than an hour’s drive way.

Maison Huguette is in a rural Provence location in the Vallée des Baux in the Bouches-du-Rhône region of southern France. It is conveniently close to the main road connecting Maussane-les-Alpilles and Saint-Martin-de-Crau. Avignon TGV station is 35km and Marseille Provence airport 62km away from your holiday home.

Mausanne-les-Alpilles (3km), known as “the village of a thousand streams”, stretches out in the valley surrounded by olive groves. There are plenty of shops and restaurants here to choose from and excellent local produce can be found at its lively Thursday morning market. The village used to be situated on the ancient Roman road between Arles and Aix-en-Provence and its history is closely linked with nearby Les-Baux-de-Provence where its villagers sought refuge during times of war.

Mausanne and its neighbour Mouriès are the most important olive oil producers in France. Mausanne’s two remaining windmills still produce fine olive oil which can be tasted on a piece of French bread or a chunk of goat’s cheese for an authentic Provençal experience.

Les Alpilles Natural Park is not only beautiful but offers so many opportunities for climbing, hiking, mountain biking and horse riding along its many marked trails. The hills are a paradise for nature lovers and the whole area is renowned for its landscapes of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, orchards and bright summer sunflowers.

There are some idyllic hilltop villages in Les Alpilles such as Eygalières (20km) and Les Baux-de-Provence (7km), both officially classified as two of the most beautiful villages in France. Several of the restaurants in Les Baux enjoy an international reputation and there are many beautifully restored buildings, museums and galleries to be found as you explore the village by foot.

The fabulous views of Arles from the rocky plateau of Les Baux may tempt you to take the 20km drive south westwards towards this historic city, another great place which inspired the paintings of Van Gogh and still has the remains of its Roman amphitheatre.

Continue southwards from Arles towards the fabulous Camargue Regional Park renowned for its wetlands, special breed of wild white horses, black bulls and pink flamingos with plenty of opportunities for horse riding, hiking and bird watching. Its capital, Sainte-Maries-de-la-Mer, is only 60km away from home and has some fine sandy beaches.

Another gateway to the Camargue is the country town of Saint-Martin-de-Crau (8km), on the edge of the vast delta laid down more than two million years ago, a protected wild area of steppes where Merino sheep graze and peaches, nectarines, tomatoes and peppers are grown.

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!

Provence is a lovely place for kids who will enjoy buying treasures at the local markets or stopping for an ice cream at a café in one of the pretty nearby villages.

There are so many activities for children and young people ranging from biking, hiking, pony clubs and rock climbing in the hills of Les Alpilles to horse-riding, trekking, quad biking and jeep tours in the marshes of the wild Camargue.

Follow the Van Gogh trail in Arles or head to Avignon to take a boat trip on the River Rhône, visit the famous medieval bridge and tour the city on the little road train.

There is an exciting tree-top activity centre near Salon-de-Provence, about half an hour away, and a zoo a little further past La Barben.  Young train enthusiasts might be happy to make the journey northwards to Le Jarditrain near Carpentras, an open-air park featuring model trains in miniature landscapes as well as having an indoor games room.
