This artistic village house in Provence is a true gem with its exquisite interiors and idyllic garden with swimming pool. It is in the heart of Fontvieille, known for its windmills and beautiful landscapes that so inspired the French writer Alphonse Daudet.

Villa Tahiti feels like a corner of paradise on a bustling village street just a stone’s throw away from restaurants, cafes and a good-sized supermarket. Guests can expect intricate detail, elegant furnishings and a wealth of books and artwork across the historic maison which is ideal at any time of year. It’s a joy to be able to open the tall glass window of the summer lounge out to the small yet stunning garden with its ancient olive tree and agapanthuses. Sit by the cypress tree and sip coffee or local wine as you embrace the characterful surroundings.

The small swimming pool is just right for cooling off on warm summer days and there is a barbecue for al-fresco dining and a relaxing outdoor lounge. Back inside, Villa Tahiti sleeps up to five guests across its two bedrooms with king-size doubles and a third bedroom with a French double, each with their own private bath or shower room.

Step out of your house and you are in charming Fontvieille with its old stone houses, restaurants, café terraces and shops. Follow the walking trail between the iconic windmills, including Moulin De Daudet, then hike through the glorious landscapes of olive trees, pine forests and oaks.

On the edge of Les Alpilles Natural Regional Park, gorgeous villages nearby include tiny Paradou, Maussane-les-Alpilles and Les Baux-de-Provence. Wine and food lovers should look out for gastronomic restaurants (some with Michelin stars), vineyards and lovely markets including the vibrant Wednesday morning market in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, around a 20-minute drive away.

Spend time in nearby Arles with its Roman amphitheatre and Van Gogh trail, discover the captivating scenery of the Camargue, venture to the beach at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer or head north towards the historic cities of Avignon and Nimes – there is so much to experience in this enchanting part of Provence and beyond.

Villa Tahiti is in the village of Fontvieille on the edge of Alpilles Natural Regional Park and only 10km from Van Gogh’s beloved Arles. This is a great location for exploring the Provençal villages and scenery of Les Alpilles as well as the captivating landscapes of the Camargue.

The house is situated on a tree-lined road that connects Fontvieille to the majestic Abbaye de Montmajour and onwards to Arles and you are within 150m to a good-sized supermarket. The village itself is a picturesque place to explore with its old stone houses, restaurants, café terraces, traditional arena and even a little cinema. Just to the south of the village, climb the hill to appreciate the views from Moulin De Daudet or hike through the beautiful landscapes of olive trees, pine forests, oaks and windmills that so inspired the French author Alphonse Daudet.

On the edge of the village is the Vélorail des Alpilles where you can pedal vehicles along 8km (roundtrip) of old railway tracks passing beautiful Provence countryside, including Abbaye de Montmajour. There are usually one or two daily or weekend departures in the high season (check opening dates/times in advance and you can book online).

Arles (10km) is a fine day out with its Roman amphitheatre, museums, art galleries and the famous Place du Forum where Van Gogh painted ‘Café Terrace at Night’. The historic town is also the gateway to the Camargue, a paradise for outdoor adventurists with its horse-riding, bird-watching, safari tours, boat trips and more. The beach at atmospheric Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is less than an hour away by car.

Elsewhere in Les Alpilles, cycle through undulating landscapes of orchards, olive groves, sunflower fields and vineyards, visit picture-perfect villages such as Maussane-les-Alpilles (8km), Les Baux-de-Provence (9km) and Eygalières (26km), dine out in Michelin starred restaurants and embrace the artistic ambience of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (18km) with its Wednesday morning market.

Avignon (32km) is also within easy reach, home to two of France’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, whilst the Roman sites of beautiful Nîmes (38km) can also be visited for a wonderful day out.

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: Teens
Ideal for Teens

Best suited to older children, families will love experiencing an authentic and historic house in the heart of the village with shops and restaurants just a few steps away. The Arènes de Fontvieille is located in the village and you should check to see if there is anything appealing on at the cinema. Look out local festivities taking place across the summer.

Just on the edge of the village is the Vélorail des Alpilles where you can ride a pedal-powered vehicle along 8km (round trip) of old railway tracks through the beautiful landscapes of Provence. There are usually one or two daily or weekend departures from Fontvieille or Arles during the high season (check opening dates/times in advance and you can book ahead online).

Arles is home to art galleries, museums and fascinating Roman sites as well as the Van Gogh trail. It’s also the gateway to the Camargue, a paradise for outdoor adventurists who will appreciate its captivating landscapes, horse-riding opportunities, safari tours and more. The beach and atmospheric seaside resort of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is less than an hour away by car.

Elsewhere in this part of Provence, find L'Arche de Méo animal farm near Mollégès, Zoo Barben just beyond Salon-de-Provence, and canoeing/kayaking as well as tree-top adventures near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, around an hour away. Not forgetting the historic sites of Avignon – explore on the tourist road train or hire bikes and admire the city views from across the banks of the Rhône on the river island, Île de la Barthelasse.
