We live in an authentic Provençal atmosphere, in the Regional Park of the Alpilles. The lanscape around our house is planted with olive trees. It is pleasant walking country. Ideal for outdoor activities (hiking, climbing, cycling) and for cultural visits (discover the villages of Provence, the ancient Roman city of Arles, visit the Van Gogh Foundation in Arles and Marseilles Mucem). Mediterranean beaches are 30 min. We are close to the village, 5min walk from the center. There are some shops (a bakery, a butcher and a grocery). Easy access to other shops, supermarket and good restaurants. The region abounds in beautiful places and our house is ideally situated for visiting Provence's most famous tourist sites. It is located about 10 min drive of the rocky medieval of les Baux de Provence, 10 min of the famous Alphonse Daudet's windmill, 15 min of the roman ruins of Glanum and the little town of Saint Rémy de Provence. The Festival of Avignon is 30 min by car, Aix en Provence 30 min too. We are very close to the Camargue and we like walking in the city of Arles (15 min). Easy access to the Mediterranean Sea (30 min to Fos-sur-mer, 45 min to the Calanques of Marseille and 40 min to the large sandy beaches of Les Saintes Maries de la mer). There is a great swimming pool outside in the nearby village, 5 min by car.
