Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

Maison Vierge is a stunning new villa with a private swimming pool, a picturesque garden with olive trees and a summer kitchen for stylish al-fresco dining. It’s wonderful to be just a short walk from two delightful Provençal villages and one of Les Alpilles’ most loved bistros within a 10-minute stroll.

The open-plan lounge and dining area is sure to impress with the great sense of space and style whilst the contemporary kitchen has been brilliantly equipped including an elegant island, Smart TV and doors opening out to the poolside terrace. The master bedroom is also on the ground floor, a beautiful room with a king-size double bed overlooking the olive grove, two dressing areas and a gorgeous bathroom.

There are three further bedrooms upstairs, a queen-size double and two twins, each one en suite with a bath or Italian shower. The interiors here are simple yet chic with contemporary décor and warm tones alongside cool tiled flooring and air-conditioning across all rooms.  

Sit back in the outdoor lounge gazing out towards the ancient olive tree and oleander and enjoy shady al-fresco meals by the Weber gas plancha and summer kitchen. The pétanque court adds to the Provençal ambience, as do the picture-perfect olive trees dotted across the other side of the attractive garden. Cool off in the long swimming pool, ideal for swimming lengths of splashing around at the ‘plage’ end.

Step out of your gated grounds and follow the tree-lined road towards one of two villages. Start off perhaps in little Paradou (700m), passing the iconic Le Bistrot du Paradou en route, and stop off for fresh bread, pastries and a morning coffee by the plane trees in the heart of the small village with its boulangerie, grocery store and café-restaurant.

In the other direction is charming Maussane-les-Alpilles, just over 1km on foot, home to yet more wonderful restaurants, inviting shops and a Thursday morning market. The village is especially known for its olive oil which you can sample in nearby olive mills and farms. Be sure to try some of the excellent wines produced by vineyards of Les Alpilles, the Luberon and the Rhone valley.

You are also so close to Les Baux-de-Provence, just a short drive away, one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ thanks to its medieval charm, perched château and incredible vistas. Other highlights of the region include the artistic towns of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Arles, the historic city of Avignon and even the mesmerising landscapes of the Camargue.

In the Bouches-du-Rhône, Maison Vierge is located in the heart of Les Alpilles region of Provence, walking distance from two delightful villages. Step out of your gated grounds and you are on the main road that connects Paradou (700m) and Maussane-les-Alpilles (1.1km). Furthermore, you are only 5km from one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Les Baux-de-Provence.

Starting off in Paradou, Le Bistrot du Paradou is merely 500m away by foot, a restaurant serving a daily menu du jour which has gained a great reputation over the years. The heart of the tiny village is a little further with its bakery, butchers, small grocery store and cafe-restaurant with tables set out beneath the plane trees by the townhall.

In the other direction, follow the tree-lined road (with a pavement part of the way) as far as Maussane-les-Alpilles. In just over 1km you could be sipping coffee on the main square by the fountain and church or pottering around the charming shops showcasing some of the gastronomic delights of the area (including Maussane’s own extra virgin olive oil). A weekly market takes place in the village on a Thursday morning.

Beat the summer tourists by arriving at Les Baux-de-Provence (5km) early and exploring its medieval lanes, then admire the glorious vistas of olive groves and woodland from its perched château. A little further afield, Eygalières (19km) is another picture-perfect village of Les Alpilles or soak up the authentic ambience of Fontvieille (8km) combined with a walk along its windmill route. Hiring bikes is a great way to discover the local landscapes and villages (there is bike hire in Paradou).  

Experience the bustling market of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (11km) on a Wednesday morning or visit any day of the week to appreciate its art galleries, Van Gogh trail and Saint-Paul de Mausole monastery. To the south, Arles (17km) is also famed for its artistic heritage alongside the historic town’s impressive amphitheatre dating back to Roman times.

For a complete change of scene, drive through the captivating Camargue, perhaps as far as the Mediterranean seaside town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (59km). Alternatively, venture east towards the undulating Provençal scenery of the Luberon, a beautiful region loved for its perched villages, orchards, vineyards and ochre-coloured landscapes – Roussillon (57km) is just over an hour away by car.

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!

Discover a wealth of family-friendly activities in Les Alpilles and beyond during your time at Maison Vierge.

Across Les Alpilles you will find wonderful walks and hikes, cycling routes, pony trekking and rock-climbing. The Vélorail des Alpilles, just a 10-minute drive away, is a great way to experience the glorious landscapes of the region – hire pedal powered vehicles to cycle along a former railway line passing iconic scenes of Provence.

A little further afield, canoeing and kayaking is possible at Le Pont du Gard (38km) or from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (48km). There is also a tree-top activity centre near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse as well as several hiking trails and other outdoor activities.

L'Arche de Méo is a charming small farm near Mollégès whilst animal lovers should also consider a visit to Zoo Barben, around a 45-minute drive away, with its hundreds of animals and large play area.

A day trip to Avignon is always popular with families. Youngsters may appreciate the tourist road train, a great way to reach the city’s two UNESCO World Heritage sites (Le Palais des Papes and Le Pont d’Avignon) whilst older children and families can hire bikes and admire city views from the other side of the Rhône on the river island, île de la Barthelasse.
