Villa sits in almost 750 acres of vineyards, one of the largest wine domaines in the region bordering the beautiful village of Les Baux de Provence in Les Alpilles.
This is a newly built, modern villa in an ancient setting. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with beautiful views of the ruined castle which dominates the surrounding landscape at Les Baux. The castle can be traced back to the 10 th century. It was finally destroyed by the local people in 1632 to bring an end to the centuries of conflicts, revolts, sieges and wars of religion which had taken place there. Today, quaint artisan shops and restaurants line the tiny cobbled streets. Better amenities are available in Mausanne les Alpilles and nearby St-Remy-de-Provence, birthplace of
Nostradamus, both within easy reach of this Les Baux de Provence villa.
25 minutes drive north from Les Baux de Provence villa is the medieval Papal city of Avignon, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and site of the world' s biggest gothic palace. The city of Arles is just to the south with an impressive Roman arena, once holding 20,000 spectators. This is the gateway to the wetlands of the Camargue with its diverse wildlife ranging from pink flamingos to white horses and black fighting bulls.
