Description

Provence hilltop villa with private pool. As perfect for 2 people as it is for a party of 12 people, Villa Romantique with it's private Roman arena-style pool basks in the sunshine and the very special light of this Provence/Languedoc region and is set in a delightful mature, walled garden amidst the intoxicating fragrances of oleander, wisteria and lavender and among pine, olive and palm trees. Highly recommended.Just 1 mile from the historic twin towns of Beaucaire and Tarascon, you are very centrally located in the golden circle created by beautiful Avignon, St Remy de Provence, Arles, Nimes and the Pont du Gard, and conveniently no more than 12 miles (20 kms) from each and yet only about 45 minutes drive to the Mediterranean.

Location description from owner

The Provence region

Villa Romantique is just 1 mile (1.5 km) out of the historic medieval twin towns of Beaucaire and Tarascon. Beaucaire has an imposing 12th century ruined castle perched high on a rock overlooking the majestic river Rhône. There is a delightful river marina crammed with colourful boats of all shapes and sizes which is bordered with restaurants and bars full of character. Alongside the marina the square is shaded by the typical spreading plane trees (platanes) so loved in village and town squares throughout this region. Beaucaire was such an important market place in France throughout the Middle Ages that prices struck here for commodities such as wine and cheese, metals and timber, fruit and meat, leather and silk, pots and pans became the norm throughout France. Its Medieval Fairs attracted buyers and sellers from all over Europe and Asia and there are countless ancient buildings which bear witness to the great history of Beaucaire. The town is steeped in history and still today there are regular markets, fairs, festivals and celebrations commemorating bygone days and traditions.

You are beautifully located in the golden circle of Avignon, St Remy de Provence, Arles, Nimes, Pont du Gard and Uzes.

Saint-Remy-de-Provence

Beaucaire looks across the Rhône to its equally lovely neighbour Tarascon with the marvellous Good King Rene's castle, one of the best preserved medieval fortresses in the whole of France; its partly fortified old town, the 17th century Town Hall and grand 19th century theatre - originally a 16th century abbey.Fascinating places to visitVilla Romantique is ideally placed for visiting all of central and western (Roman) Provence, the Luberon, the Camargue, the Gard region of Languedoc-Rousillon and the uncrowded part of the Mediterranean. While at our holiday villa in Provence, you should try to give yourselves enough time here to experience just a few of the wonderful sites in this fascinating part of the South of France. I list some suggestions here• The beautiful walled city of Avignon - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the medieval city of Popes - the biggest gothic palace in the world and the legendary bridge made famous by the song known to every child - Sur le Pont, d Avigno, St Remy de Provence and the impressive Greco-Roman archaeological site of Glanum, and the beautiful retreat where Van Gogh spent a prolific year inspired by the luminosity of the light in this region• 11th century Les Baux de Provence dominating the Provence landscape. The Roman centre of Arles described by Constantine as The Little Rome in Gaul; and once the Roman capital for all of Spain, France and Britain. The great obelisk, the theatre, the amphitheatre arena and the Cloisters of St Trophime are not to be missed• Nimes with its impressive Roman arena. The beautiful Roman 'Jardin Des Fontaines' which it has been said inspired the gardens at Versailles, and the 'Maison Carreé' much like the Parthenon in Athens• Pont du Gard-a World Heritage Site, the incredible triple height bridge built by the Romans, one of the finest and most grand pieces of architecture antiquity has bequeathed to us. The aqueduct level delivered pure water to the Roman baths and fountains at Nimes for over 200 years• Uzés, a delightfully restored medieval town, the seat of the Dukes of Uzés (the first Dukes of France ) for over a thousand years with its lovely cathedral with its tall tower unique in France and similar to the Leaning Tower of Pisa• Aix en Provence, a city of art and culture, home of Cezanne and the city of a hundred fountains• The Luberon - Gordes, Menerbes, Bonnieux and Roussillon• Marseille with its picturesque old port and beautiful church high up on the hill overlooking the city - go up on the little street train touristique, the Mediterranean, and the fortress island , Isle d If - home of Alexander Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo, Montpelier, elegant and classical, rather like a Paris of the South. Orange, the great Imperial Roman theatre - yet another UNESCO World Heritage site, The Camargue - calm and mysterious - try to take a Land Rover safari or a boat trip through the lagoons and waterways. Aigues-Mortes, a beautifully preserved town completely enclosed by ramparts. The French kingdom's first Mediterranean port and the departure point for the Orient and the Crusades. St. Maries de la Mer - like Mediterranean seaside resorts were 70 years ago - quiet and gentle with unspoilt and uncrowded beachesAnd my suggestions for fascinating and beautiful places for you to enjoy, and all close to our villa in Provence, could go on and on
