Maison Sanctuaire is an exquisite 5-bedroom villa in Provence with lovely rural views from its flower-filled terraces and attractive swimming pool. It’s a five-minute drive from Maussane-les-Alpilles’ charming restaurants and shops as well as being close to the famous village of Les Baux-de-Provence.

Wood-beamed ceilings and cool tiled floors add character to the open-plan living and dining spaces with chic furnishings alongside a great sense of style. Light floods in from the arched windows that open out to the terrace framing the garden and swimming pool view.

The ground floor also benefits from a master bedroom and bathroom whilst there are four further en suite doubles upstairs, all with queen or king-size beds. The attention to detail here is impressive and we love how the contemporary features are blended perfectly with traditional touches.

Outside there are spots for peaceful reading, a game of pétanque, an early evening glass of rosé on the shaded outdoor lounge and al-fresco feasts in the pool house next to the wood-fired and Weber barbecues. The 16m long swimming pool, which can be heated on request, is also hard to resist, as are the surrounding sun loungers.

There are many lovely villages close by, starting off with Maussane-les-Alpilles, home to café terraces, inviting restaurants and a Thursday morning market. Both Maussane and nearby Mouriès are known producing some of France’s best extra virgin olive oil whilst Les Baux-de-Provence is classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Art lovers will be keen to follow Van Gogh’s footsteps in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Arles whilst history enthusiasts will adore day trips to Avignon and Nimes. Meanwhile, don’t forget about the incredible landscapes of the Luberon with its vineyards, orchards and iconic perched villages (Gordes, Ménerbes, Roussillon) reached within an hour by car.

Only 6km from Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, and even closer to charming Maussane-les-Alpilles, Maison Sanctuaire is in the heart of Les Alpilles Natural Regional Park. The airports of Avignon, Nimes and Marseille are all less than an hour away whilst fast train services from Lille and Paris arrive at Avignon TGV (33km).

With a countryside view, located just off the country road leading to Maussane-les-Alpilles, Maison Sanctuaire is in a rural setting yet it is not isolated (there is a handful of neighbours). It’s merely a 5-minute drive to the lovely village of Maussane-les-Alpilles with its restaurants, cafes, little shops, small supermarket and Thursday morning market.

Both Maussane (3km) and nearby Mouriès (5.5km) are known for their olive oil production – there are gorgeous walks through the surrounding groves and you can sample some of France’s finest extra virgin oil alongside other regional delights such as honey, cheese and wine. Gastronomes will appreciate the many excellent restaurants across this region from authentic bistros to Michelin starred establishments. Discover wine-tasting opportunities nearby as well as further afield across the Luberon and Rhône valley (Châteauneuf-du-Pape is an hour away).

Keen golf lovers note that Golf de Servanes and Domaine de Manville are both within a 10-minute drive. Elsewhere across Les Alpilles, spend time in idyllic hilltop villages including Les Baux-de-Provence (6km) and Eygalières (15km) as well as the artistic towns of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (11km) and Arles (21km).

Other wonderful days out include Avignon (32km) and its UNESCO World Heritage sites, the antique stores and Sunday morning market of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (41km) alongside the beautiful University town of Aix-en-Provence (62km).

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 Kids Ideal for Teens

If staying at Maison Sanctuaire with youngsters, a cot and a highchair can be requested. Families can enjoy a game of pétanque as well as make the most of the beautiful garden. It is also fantastic being just 3km from useful amenities in the charming Provençal village of Maussane-les-Alpilles.

Be enchanted by the medieval hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence (6km) and its historic château – pick up a ‘treasure map’ from the tourist office to help you explore. Also within a 10-minute drive is Carrières des Lumières, a popular attraction where artwork is projected on to quarry walls with light and sound.

Drive to Fontvieille for lovely walks between the iconic windmills or pedal one of the open-air vehicles along a former railway line passing wonderful scenery at Vélorail des Alpilles (check opening dates in advance).

The little farm at L'Arche de Méo, east of Saint-Rémy, will appeal to young animal lovers, as will the larger Zoo Barben near Salon-de-Provence. Meanwhile, the more active of guests can try out canoeing/kayaking near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or beneath the magnificent Pont du Gard, both just under an hour away. Fontaine-de-Vaucluse/Lagnes is also home to a tree-top activity centre with trails suitable for various ages.
