Maison Meryl is a fine family home with a wonderful garden and swimming pool in a great location for exploring so much of Provence, perfectly positioned between Avignon and Saint-Rémy.

This 4-bedroom villa has been thoughtfully styled with charm and character, a sometimes eclectic blend of old and new creating a warm and welcoming ambience. The lounge is huge with its corner sofa, piano and sliding doors opening out to the garden whilst the kitchen is spacious and brilliantly equipped for your self-catering holiday in Provence.

There are three good-sized bedrooms with queen-size double beds on the ground floor, alongside two bath/shower rooms (one en suite). A fourth double bedroom can be found upstairs with a balcony overlooking the garden below, close to the little fitness area on the mezzanine.

A unique feature of this house is the conservatory-style garden with exotic plants, spiral staircase and decadent jacuzzi. This leads straight out to the glorious garden and its swimming pool beside the majestic pines. Embrace your Provençal surroundings as you hear the hum of crickets on warm summer evenings dining al-fresco on the terrace or relaxing with a bottle of local wine.

Both Eyragues and Châteaurenard are within a 5 to 10-minute drive with their lovely café terraces, restaurants, useful shops and weekly markets showcasing delicious local products (the area is famed for its fruit and vegetable farming). A little further afield is Saint-Rémy with its rich artistic heritage, galleries, bistros and vibrant Wednesday morning market.

Explore the idyllic landscapes and picture-perfect villages of Les Alpilles from Eygalières to Les Baux-de-Provence or venture into the Luberon with gems such as Gordes and Ménerbes reached within a 45-minute drive.

Then there’s the magnificent Sunday morning market in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the canoeing/kayaking and hiking opportunities near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, the vineyards of the Rhône valley and of course the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon, a delightful historic city just 13km by car.

Only 13km south of Avignon, Maison Meryl is an ideal base for exploring Provence with Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (8.5km) and the idyllic landscapes of Les Alpilles also within easy reach.

The house and its vast garden is located just off a small lane leading to the main road connecting charming Eyragues (2km) and the Provençal town of Châteaurenard (3.5km). Eyragues is a traditional village with a good selection of restaurants and café-bars as well as useful shops including a small supermarket and bakery. Join locals as the lovely market takes place in the village square on a Friday morning and look out for village festivities throughout the year.

In the other direction is Châteaurenard (3.5km), an authentic small town with a Sunday morning market – local specialities here include liquer de Frigolet whilst the area is also known for its fruit and vegetable farming. As well as soaking up the town’s historic charm, it is an attractive place for a morning coffee on one of the terrace cafes beneath the plane trees. Walk up to the top of the village to see the remains of the castle and admire the views around you.  

Learn all about the life of Van Gogh in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (8.5km) and soak up the joyful ambience of its huge Wednesday morning market before visiting the town’s art galleries, shops and restaurants. Saint-Rémy is the gateway to Les Alpilles, a beautiful region of Provence with olive trees, woodland and limestone peaks, wonderful for hiking and cycling enthusiasts. Picture-perfect villages include Eygalières (19km), Maussane-les-Alpilles (19km) and Les Baux-de-Provence (17km).

Spend time discovering the small city of Avignon (13km) and its UNESCO World Heritage sites, Le Pont d’Avignon and Palais des Papes. Visit the bustling markets, wine-bars and gastronomic restaurants or for a complete change of scene why not hire bikes in the city and cycle over to île de la Barthelasse, France’s largest river island in the Rhône.

Meanwhile, other highlights in this part of Provence include enchanting L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (26km) with its canals and antique stores, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (32km), a paradise for canoeing enthusiasts and keen hikers, and the vineyards of the Rhône valley around Châteauneuf-du-Pape (28km).

A little further afield, explore the captivating landscapes of the Luberon (Gordes is 37km away, for example) or venture to the foothills of Mont Ventoux for more pretty villages and incredible scenery around Mazan and Bédoin.

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!

This is a fantastic location for exploring various parts of Provence with the historic city of Avignon and its two UNESCO World Heritage sites only 13km away. When visiting Avignon with children look out for the tourist road train that tours the city’s sights or hire bikes and cycle across to France’s largest river island, île de la Barthelasse.

Heading to Les Alpilles or the Luberon regions of Provence, discover a wealth of outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, cycling, horse-riding and rock-climbing. Meanwhile, there are canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue River near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or beneath the magnificent Pont du Gard around a 40-minute drive away.

Enjoy a day at Passerelles des Cîmes near Lagnes/ Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, a tree-top adventure centre with trails for a range of ages. The caves at Grottes de Thouzon (22km) are also within easy reach whilst a little further north are Wave Island and the theme park Parc Spirou, both close to Carpentras.
