Young kids can play on the vast lawns or find shade by the surrounding trees whilst teens relax on the sumptuous outdoor furnishings by the luxurious poolside before taking a dip surrounded by great privacy and views.

St-Rémy and Van Gogh’s beloved Arles are within easy reach whilst mesmerising Luberon and the wonderful Camargue can also be easily visited in a day. 

Whether exploring the local markets, cycling through lavender fields or hiking through the magnificent countryside, this region is sure to offer memorable activities for all ages, before returning to your beautiful contemporary home in idyllic Provençal surroundings.

Villa Paradou is in a residential area just outside the centre of Paradou (1km), a small yet delightful village full of characterful houses, colourful gardens and an interesting museum. This is Provence at its best, full of charm and surrounded by beautiful countryside at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range.

Within a short drive you will find charming Mausanne, known for its amazing olive oil, and Les Baux de Provence, a unique and incredible place classified as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages. Those who are more adventurous can find some beautiful walking trails around the villages and beyond or simply head to the surrounding vineyards and olive groves to sample some of the region’s fine produce from this gastronomic region. 

With its rich historical past, nearby Arles (23km) is a fantastic place to visit, well known for its incredible architecture and fascinating Roman remains. It is also famous for its connections to Vincent Van Gogh who managed to paint over 500 works during his relatively short time in the city he loved so much. The city is full of museums and galleries and there is a great market on a Saturday morning. Food lovers will also appreciate the wonderful dining opportunities from pavement cafes to fine food establishments.

You are of course in the heart of a formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers both in Les Alpilles National Park and beyond. Nearby St-Rémy is well known for being popular with artists, many live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. The town is also famous for its many restaurants, from down to earth bistros found on pretty narrow streets to Michelin starred establishments and food lovers shouldn’t miss the market on a Wednesday morning!

Eygalières, one of the prettiest hilltop villages in Provence, is also within easy reach whilst Gordes is yet another one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months.

Those looking for activity have so much on their doorstep. There is both horse-riding and golf within a short drive and both the immediate and wider area are a walkers and cyclists paradise with stunning countryside and landscapes. Older children will love kayaking in the Sorgue and there are plenty of other family friendly activities throughout the region from model railways, open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.

Not forgetting the stunning landscapes and natural beauty of the Camargue, which is just a short drive away. A beautiful melange of land, lagoon and sea with pink flamingos, wild white horses, rice fields and endless wild countryside and beaches, this natural park covers 900 square kilometres of land. Endless activities can be offered from horse-riding, trekking, quad biking and jeep tours across this diverse and unique area.

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!
