Provence, located in the South of France, is famous for the mild climate, the brilliant sunlight, its charming villages and countryside and its unique traditions. From the Moulin de la Roque, within 20 minutes to 1 hour, you will discover the magnificence of the Les Alpilles and olive groves, the hill villages of the Luberon Mountains, the Roman history of Avignon, the Pont du Gard, the collosiums of Arles, Nimes and Orange, the famous wine region of Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape, the widerness of the Carmargue, lavendar region of Sault and Le Mont Ventoux, cezanne, Aix en Provence and the Mt. St. Victoire, and the small fishing villages of Côte d'Azure. Here, there is something for everyone - shopping, festivals, tradtion, history, hiking, rock climbing, rafting or kayaking, daily markets, and fine cuisine. Come in Spring, Fall, summer or winter. Each season offers another type of beauty. The weather is usually mild and temperate. We live outside most of the year with windows and doors open!
The area of the Les Alpilles, Saint Remy-de-Provence and it surrounding villages of Noves and others, offers charm and a beautiful rural countryside. You will see the rocky blue majestic mountains of the Les Alpilles highlighted by fields of yellow wheat, red poppies and expansive olive groves and dotted with the occasional stone farmhouses or mas. The village of St Remy is quaint, full of special boutiques for clothes, local products and delicious restaurants. Keeping the old world charm, you will love to walk through the narrow streets, enjoy the Wednesday outdoor provencal market and just take in the ambiance at an outdoor café.
Noves, a historic and quaint typical village of provence offers a different sort of ambiance as it is not touristy and still rich with the provencal French culture. A walled city from the midievil ages, you will see a quaint eglise from the 10th century, small shops and bakeries and experience the authentic slow provencal life. This area, being in the heart of Provence, offers convenience for touring as the majority of the most beautiful and famous sites are within 20 minutes to one hour driving time. This area is also perfect for biking as most of the small lanes have little traffic, weave through charming villages and are not mountainous.
Whatelse is there to do? There are the provencal markets of Isle sur la Sorgue, and other famous villages, kayaking on nearby rivers or under the Pont du Gard, horseback riding, aerial adventures, and stunning hiking trails galore. The closet large town, the walled city of Avignon offers an historic view of the Roman empire and was the home of many ancient popes, the palace still stands. Also nearby, are the Roman coliseums of Nimes, Arles and Orange, still in use today for bullfights, concerts and other events. If it is cuisine or wine you are interested in, you can visit the “Route du Vin”..the best of the Côte du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape, or the truffle market in Vaison la Romain….And if you love the seaside, you will be delighted by the little fishing village of Cassis, just 45 minutes away on the turquoise Cote d’Azure. There is something for everyone in Provence from history buffs, to gourmets, to wine connoisseurs, to shoppers, hikers, rock climbers, photographers, children and adults. There are vacations for adventure or just relaxing.
