Pin this Villa
Modern comfort and stylish decor await in the countryside just 2 minutes from the famous village of Fontvieille in the Alpilles region near St-Remy and Les Baux de Provence.

A complete renovation has just been completed. While the property is old on the outside one would never know it from the inside. The house is entirely air conditioned except in one of the 5 bedrooms. We found the property to be well-equipped, well managed and redesigned for comfort and amenities.

Enjoy the beautiful, private garden with ample parking behind a remote controlled, gated entrance. Sit and enjoy outdoor living in covered and uncovered outdoor areas around the brand new pool.

An ideal location to explore the real Provence!

Locale

7 km north east of Arles and 8 km south of the Baux de Provence via the D17. Fontvieille - Daudet's windmill

Fontvieille is situated in the heart of the "Provence des Alpilles", not far from the historic arena at Arles, the citadel of the Baux de Provence, the museums of Saint-Rémy and the Avignon Festival which is less than 30km away !

Fontvieille - Church: After having left Arles, you will follow a pretty road (the D17 in the direction of Les Baux and Maussane) which crosses the superb countryside of the Alpilles with its vast fields of olive trees, shrubs and lush green fields, with the majestic Montmajour abbey in the distance.

Fontvieille - Town hall: Arriving in Fontvieille, you will discover a picturesque village with its ancient houses built from stone extracted from the famous quarries founded in the 15th century. The arenas at Arles and Nîmes, the 14th century chateau at Tarascon and most recently the Palais Longchamps and the Bourse at Marseille have all been built from the same stone.

Fontvieille - Mautauban castle: Fontvieille is the village where Alphonse Daudet wrote his famous "Lettres de Mon Moulin". To visit the "Moulin de Daudet" and its small museum, climb the small hill until you reach the summit where the wind-mill overlooks the valley. From the hill (easy to climb), you will have a superb view of the Alpilles and the "Château de Montauban" where Daudet lived from time-to-time.

Fontvieille - Church: It was here, surrounded by this "scenery of stone" (or "caillasse" as they say here), on this hill-top covered in olives, pine-trees and oaks that Daudet found the inspiration for his stories.

He dreamt up his characters while listening to the stories from the shepherds and inhabitants of the Montauban chateau.

A variety of walking-tracks ranging from 2 to 9 km are available so visitors can appreciate the beauty of the natural environment, and it is even possible to walk in the foot-steps of la chèvre de M. Seguin!

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
