The villa is within 10 minutes walking distance of the famous town of Saint-Rémy de Provence and its ancient Roman town of ‘GLANUM’, on the foothills of the beautiful Alpilles mountains and surrounded by the historic cities of Avignon, Arles, Nîmes & Aix en Provence. The Luberon and Camargue national parks are also very close as is the Mediterranean sea – within an hours drive.

The whole region is rich in history. This is ‘Roman Provence’ – with numerous monuments, arenas, and amphitheatres – Arles, Nîmes, Orange etc, not forgetting the incredible ‘Pont du Gard’ near Uzes or the amazing mausoleum and triumphal arch of St.Rémy itself.

Van Gogh spent some years in Arles and Saint-Rémy (at the sanitorium which still exists) and produced some of his most captivating paintings in this area.

Saint-Rémy de Provence is a very picturesque historical town, lined all around with plane trees and abundant shops, cafés and restaurants along the boulevard and in the charming squares.

The landscape is beautiful – a mixture of pine forests, olive groves and vineyards dotted with cypress trees and framed by rocky mountains and rolling hills with the incessant chirping of the ‘cigales’ in the background.

There are a range of sports and activities available in the area: Gliding, Golf, Tennis, horse riding and trekking, mountain climbing etc.
