In august in les Alpilles region (with the famous town of St. Remy de Provence) villages have summer fetes, bull-running and fun fairs !

The towns and markets, all 20 minutes, of Apt, Cavaillon and Ile Sur La Sorgue have large supermarkets and shops.

Golf is available 20 minutes away. Tennis Courts 10 minutes from the house, and the famous Camargue and beaches 1hr 15 mins. Kayaking on a calm river descent is at Ile Sur La Sorgue (great half day for the kids!) and at St. Maries de la Mer there is a wonderful Beach Club with loungers on the beach and restaurant which makes a great day out !

Bonnieux

The region, which is often called by the acronym PACA or Paca, lies in South Eastern France. Visitors enjoy impressive, sweeping views from hills above the coast and spellbinding lavender scents and enchanting ambiances amidst the scrubland. Marcel Pagnol and Alphonse Daudet described the region well in 'La gloire de mon père' (My Father's Glory) and Tartarin de Tarascon (Tartarin of Tarascon). Many people find it unforgettable. Its fame in painting parallels that of literature: Van Gogh and Cézanne immortalised it on their canvases.

Gordes
This village can boast about being amongst one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has narrow cobbled streets which thread their way through tall houses; built against the rock, clinging onto its flanks. Gordes also extends its territory to include the Bories village, those curious igloo-shaped structures made of stones. It has sheltered many a famous artist such as André Lhote, Marc Chagall, Jean Deyrolle, and Victor Vasarely, and now keeps its cultural heritage thanks to many exhibits.www.gordes-village.com


Saint Rémy de Provence
Set at the foot of the Alpilles mountains, Saint-Remy inspired some of the brightest paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and on the verge of 21stcentury, Saint Remy has preserved its authentic Provencal style of living in the shade of the barrel-vaults and the Provencal traditional country houses in the countryside. The charming roads of the Alpilles Mountains are an invitation to discover amazing landscapes.www.saintremy-de-provence.com

Avignon
Avignon, a European City of Culture in 2000, also has a penchant for the avant-garde and reveals many contrasts.
Located centrally close to many natural wonders, Avignon also has its own thanks to a rich religious and historic heritage mixed with the Provencal spirit and way of life making the city so unique. It's name dates back to the fourth century BC (Aouen(n)ion) and has two interpretations: town of the strong wind or lord of the river. A veritable art and culture showcase, Avignon is a town of art and history. Fabulous treasures bear witness to the fact that the popes lived here in the Middle Ages.

Aix-en-Provence
Home town of Paul Cezanne, Aix en Provence is one of the most famous cities of Provence located in a warm and sunny area close to the Sainte-Victoire Mountain. Have a walk in the city centre's small shadowed streets, seat at a café and try a Calisson!

Arles
Arles could be summarized with two words: Camargue and roman heritage; but it wouldn't be true. Arles is also a vibrant sunny city which inspired Van Gogh, still reflects the pure Provencal traditions as the city is caught in-between the Camargue, the Alpilles Mountains-small mountains, and the Crau-an arid rocky area leading to eastern Province.

Saintes-Maries de la Mer
The village of Saintes Marie de la Mer, a place of warm reception, tradition and pilgrimage, is built between sky and sea, where the Rhone meets the Mediterranean Sea. Les Saintes Maries de la Mer rises as the capital of the Camargue for those who fall in love with this region, bewitched by its wild beauty, its culture and its lively and authentic traditions and the attraction of the dunes, the sandy beaches and the large marshlands with reeds and "manades".www.saintesmaries.com

The Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region has a remarkable cultural heritage: 1,800 buildings are listed national historic monuments. Visit and explore the cultural treasures of the Abbayes de Montmajour à Arles (“Montmajour Abbey in Arles”), de Silvacane, du Thoronet, les Châteaux de Tarascon (“Tarascon Castles”), Baux de Provence, le Cloître de la Cathédrale de Fréjus (“Cloister of Fréjus Cathedral”) la Forteresse de Mont-Dauphin (“Mount Dauphin Fortress), les sites archéologiques de Glanum et d'Olbia archaeological sites of Glanum and d'Olbia, ancient theatre of Orange and Museum of Art and History.

The region also has many festivals, several of which are world famous (Aix, Orange, Avignon, etc.), as well numerous local customs and traditions, such as the 13 desserts, Nativity figures (Le Ravi, etc.) and pétanque (boules), which is encountered at every turn.

It also boasts a rich, abundant natural heritage, with three national parks, four regional natural parks, nature reserves such as Les Écrins, Mercantour Park, Port-Cros, Porquerolles, the Verdon Gorges, The Luberon National Park etc.

Festivals, architecture, traditions and outstanding regional wines and gastronomy, all long-standing highlights of the legendary lifestyle here, contribute to a most pleasurable “after-golf” experience too
