The Provence region
Ideally situated for exploring the region of Provence, with the fortified papal city of Avignon just twenty minutes to the north; Arles and the natural wilderness of the Camargue to the south-west, Marseilles and the beauty of the Calanques to the south-east and the spectacular valley of the Luberon where Peter Mayle lived and wrote his famous novel “A Year in Provence”, and the films "Jean de Florette" and "Manon des Sources" were shot, to the east.
Also close by is the magnificent village of Les Baux de Provence perched up in the Alpilles, the fashionable town of Aix en Provence, the Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard dating back to the first century AD and (for the antiques-hunters!) the town of Isle sur la Sorgue, famous for its 300+ antique shops and weekly fairs.
And it is, of course, perfect for simply relaxing, enjoying the sunshine and sampling the wonderful Provencal food and wines.
The house is set at the foot of the Alpilles, a range of sharp peaked hills surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, lavender fields and fruit trees, and just three kilometres from St. Rémy, one of the "must-sees" in Provence. Amongst St. Remy's ancient winding streets you will discover beautifully restored old houses, fantastic old fountains, shady squares, elegant boutiques and restaurants to suit all. There is a superb market in the centre of town every Wednesday morning and local festivities (“fetes”) take place in and around the town throughout the year, but particularly during the summer months.
It is an historic town built on one of the oldest archaeological sites in Europe. You can roam amongst the Roman remains of "Glanum" which was founded in the 3rd century BC, and visit the "grands Thermes", the Triumphal Arch, the Temple and the Mausoleum of a true gallo-roman city.
The beauty of the countryside and the quality of light have inspired many artists, writers and painters over the centuries. Without a doubt, the most famous being Vincent Van Gogh who produced more than 150 paintings of the countryside surrounding Saint Rémy de Provence. It is also the birthplace of Nostradamus.
The area also offers a wide range of activities including golf (courses in nearby Les Baux de Provence, Avignon, Mouries, Mallemort and Nimes), gliding (5-minutes drive from the house at Romanin), horse riding (closest centre in St. Remy), hiking, cycling, canoeing, hot air ballooning and climbing.

"Beautiful house near to St-Remy-de-Provence"
We had a lovely, relaxing week here in September 2012.
The house is comfortable and homely, with everything we needed. The kitchen is well-equipped, so we ate in most evenings. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was modern and clean with a bath and a fantastic walk-in shower.
The garden is huge, with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sun. We enjoyed the pool, although, by the end of September, the temperature was more bracing than refreshing!
St-Remy is within extremely easy reach (10 mins by car) and has dozens of restaurants, lots of shops and boutiques and a couple of supermarkets. Les Baux, Avignon, Nimes and Arles are all within an easy drive and worth a visit.
