The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Bouches-du-Rhone region
The villa is located north of Marseille, between the historic cities of Aix and Avignon. To the east is the Durance river and the hills of the Luberon famous for its countryside of woods, lavender fields and vineyards as painted by Cezanne.
Spread throughout are some of the most beautiful ancient market towns in France (Lourmarin, Lauris, Roussillion, Bonnieux, Gordes etc). To the south west is the Carmargue with its wildlife reserve, famous for flamingoes and wild horses. The cities of Nimes and Arles are also worth a visit, as is St Remy de Provence (home of Nostradamus) and the nearby Les Baux de Provence (ancient mediavel citadel). Just east of Marseille is the old seaside town of Cassis with its lovely Mediterranean coves and nearby cliffs.

We have just returned from Provence and a two week stay in Pont Royal. This is an excellent base from which to visit all the amazing villages such as St Remy de Provence, Avignon, Gordes... Most seem to be 30-40 mins away.
The villa is beautifully presented providing all that you need for a self catered holiday. Our children really loved the pool outside our door which was very convenient for us as parents We found the information pack sent to us prior to our departure really helped us plan, along with the folder in the house which was packed full of information.
The resort itself is presented impecably and we got great use out of the driving range 5 mins down the road and the pools in the resort.
Super Holiday and we will be back.

We really enjoyed our two week stay at Pont Royal Villa. Situated at a very nice vacation resort between Aix en Provence and Avignon, this place was great both for seeing different parts of Bouches-du-Rhone and Vaucluse regions of Provence, and for relaxation at the nice pools nearby. Our kids aged 1.5, 8 and 9 years old also enjoyed our vacation. The villa was well equiped and well kept, and we had very friendly contacts with the owner. I can definately recommend this place for a vacation in Provence!
