Soak up village life all around you as you stay at Villa Sérénité, an enchanting holiday home with a gorgeous garden, picture-perfect terraces and a heated swimming pool, just a short stroll from restaurants, cafés and the village’s weekly market on a Thursday morning.

This traditional village house is a place of beauty with its authentic charm and artistic character. There’s an air of minimalism across the vast lounge despite the many books, paintings and objets d’art whilst the welcoming kitchen-diner showcases the house’s original features such as wood-beamed ceilings and terracotta flooring. The artistic theme continues upstairs across the villa’s six bedrooms of varying sizes, four of which feature en suites whilst the fifth/sixth bedrooms share a shower room.

Outside it feels like your very own Provençal paradise with south-facing terraces, a vine-clad pergola and a salt-water heated swimming pool, all surrounded by a verdant garden filled with the sights and scents of Provence. Protected from the mistral, admire cypresses, olive and fig trees, colourful oleander, summer roses and lavender alongside deck chairs, sun-loungers, a pretty stone bench and sculpture.

Wander out of your front door, pass neighbouring houses, and soon you will find yourself in the heart of a charming village, home to well-regarded restaurants, a weekly Provençal market and little shops selling some of the finest French olive oil produced from the many groves surrounding the village. A perfect base for exploring the captivating landscapes of Les Alpilles Natural Regional Park and beyond.

Just a short drive away is the hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence, officially classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ whilst other gems of the region include Eygalières and the art-lovers towns of Saint-Rémy and Arles, both famed for their associations with Vincent Van Gogh. Les Alpilles is wonderful for keen walkers, hikers, horse-riding enthusiasts and cyclists with its woodland, rolling hills of olive groves, vineyards and rich rural heritage.

Further afield, spend time in the historic city of Avignon, drive out to the mesmerising Camargue, visit some of the Luberon’s idyllic perched villages or canoe along the Sorgue River near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

In the Bouches-du-Rhône department of southern France, Villa Sérénité is in a charming Provençal village just a short stroll from restaurants, cafés, a grocery store and the weekly market on a Thursday morning.

You are truly surrounded by village life yet so many sights of Provence are within easy reach. Driving past woodland and olive groves that surround the village, within ten minutes you will reach one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Les Baux-de-Provence (4km) and its hilltop château which affords sensational vistas of the surrounding landscapes of Les Alpilles. Even closer is the small village of Paradou and the well-known Le Bistrot du Paradou.

Continuing further north, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (11km) is not to be missed with its Van Gogh trail, art galleries, restaurants, wine-bars and atmospheric Wednesday morning market. Eygalières (20km) is another gem of Les Alpilles where a small handful of A-list celebrities have bought houses.

Arles (18km) is a much-loved day trip with its fascinating heritage and artistic vibe – it’s also the gateway to the captivating Camargue. Antique lovers won’t want to miss the charming town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (42km) with its Sunday morning brocante, little antique shops and picturesque waterways, whilst outdoor adventurists will adore the tree-top activity centre and canoeing/kayaking opportunities in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (48km).

Historic Avignon (31km), Nîmes (45km) and Le Pont du Gard (40km) are other wonderful places to visit during your time in this part of southern France. Alternatively, head east to admire the undulating scenery of the Luberon region of Provence, famous for its vineyards, lavender fields, orchards and idyllic perched villages such as Gordes, Ménerbes and Oppède le Vieux, all reached within an hour 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!

Les Alpilles region of Provence offers wonderful family walks passing woodland, olive groves and farmland alongside pony-trekking, horse-riding, cycling, mountain biking and rock-climbing opportunities.

Young artists can be inspired by the galleries of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Arles and follow the Van Gogh trail to see places that inspired the Dutch artist who painted so much of this part of Provence. At the Carrières de Lumières near Les Baux-de-Provence you can view artwork projected onto quarry walls accompanied by a light and music show.

A little further afield, there is a tree-top activity centre for a range of ages in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and this is also a fantastic area for canoeing/kayaking along the Sorgue. In the other direction, pack a picnic and drive to Le Pont du Gard, a UNESCO World Heritage site where you can hire canoes along the Gard River.

Other regional attractions include Zoo Barben, around a 45-minute drive away, and two theme parks, Parc Grimmland and Le Village Des Automates, both reached in under an hour by car.

Reviews

  • Beautiful calm home in the town

    on 01/09/2023

    We absolutely loved this house and its garden and pool and were very happy there. It is full of books and art and has an incredibly happy atmosphere. It is an old home and quite old fashioned in some aspects which we loved; the art is modern however; and the facilities e.g. range cooker; fridge; are new modern and excellent. So it is a wonderful combination.
    The owner's friendliness and energy really helped over the few issues that cropped up. The villa is just a few minutes walk from the lovely town, either along the main street or through some lovely alleyways amongst the oldest part of Mausanne. The town truly has everything one needs: some beautiful stores; a great boulangerie or two; useful little SPA; great wine shop (Le Caviste); some lovely bistros. Perfect ice cream store just down the road and pizza at the end of the street! We stayed home a good deal with our small children, but took trips to Carrieres de Lumieres which I would recommend and also to the river at Pont du Gard which was glorious. So much to enjoy. Also recommend Edu on the outskirts of St Remy if eating with kids and you need aircon. / indoor.
    We may have been lucky but the garden is not really overlooked and feels very private and there was no noise from surrounding homes - it was incredibly peaceful (just a cockerel crowing from a little smallholding close by:)). There is a sports pitch out the back of the property, not really used while we were there and would not be a problem at all. Thank you for the perfect stay in such a calm and welcoming property!
