Resort Village facilities:
The nearby 'Pierre et Vacances' village has a number of facilities and activities that can be booked via the main reception featuring boat hire, tennis, an equestrian centre, children's clubs and more!
The following local shops are located in the Pont-Royal village; grocery, boulangerie and newsagents. Le Comptoir des Vins. Nearest supermarket is the Intermarche store located approximately 1 km away in Mallemort.
The nearest petrol station is located on the N7 just South of Pont-Royal on the way to Aix-en-Provence.
A local market comes to the village square every week with its many stalls selling everything from Provençal produce, to leather goods, local art and clothes. It is well worth a visit.
There are markets located at Salon, Mallemort, Cavaillon and Aix-en-Provence.
Pont-Royal is well located for visiting many of Provence's historic towns and cities, as well as the stunningly beautiful countryside:
A beautiful city located approximately half an hours drive South of Pont-Royal and well worth a trip. Originally a spa town founded by the Romans, today it is a labyrinth of tiny alleyways and squares and is known as the 'City of a Thousand Fountains'. This is provincial France at its best. Home to Cezanne in the late 18 hundreds, the city and the surrounding areas was the inspiration for many of his paintings. His workshop, which is preserved exactly how it was left at the time of his death in 1906, is one of many items of interest that any visitor to the city should take in.
In the evenings, Aix really comes alive. An overwhelming selection of bars and restaurants offer plenty of opportunity to savour Provençal cuisine and hospitality at prices to suit all budgets.
Saturday is the main market day. It is widely recognised as being one of the biggest and the best market in the region and is an occasion not to be missed.
Arles and The Carmargue
Arles is known as the 'Pearl of Provence' and is renowned for its Roman heritage. The well preserved Roman arena is well worth a visit and is still used today for concerts and the 'touromachie' form of bull fighting that the Carmargue region is famous for. Arles was also the home of Van Gogh for a couple of years during which time he was at his most prolific, producing over 200 paintings and 100 drawings that were inspired by the Provençal countryside, including one of his most famous works, Sunflowers. The town is well worth a visit and is located approximately 60 km West of Pont-Royal.
South of Arles lies the delta region of the river Rhône that is known as the Carmargue. Famous for its horses and designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, the area is a haven for wildlife. Apart from the famous breed of white horse and the Carmargue fighting bulls, you will also be able to see flocks of flamingos, various breeds of hawk, herons and many other varieties of birdlife.
If you are looking for a day on the beach, the resort of Les Stes Maries de la Mer is located approximately 35 km South of Arles. With miles of beaches, boat trips on the Mediterranean and plenty of other water sports to take part in, as well as a huge variety of restaurants and beachside bars, Maries makes for a good day out.
One of the most historic cities in Europe, Avignon is famous for being home to the Pope's court after its exile from Rome in the early 14th century. As a result, the city is rich in architecture and history. The focal point is the incredible Papal Palace which resembles a citadel rising from living rock from the outside. Also worth a visit is the Pont du Gard, an amazing Roman aqueduct and one of the wonders of the ancient world.
A wide selection of restaurants and bars make Avignon an excellent destination for an evening out.
The bustling, cosmopolitan city of Marseille provides something for everyone. The area around the Vieux Port is the centre of most things and is, more or less, the ancient harbour basin that the ancient Greeks sailed into when they first came to France all those centuries ago. These days it provides haven for the local fishing fleet and the yachts of the wealthy, along with an abundance of harbour side cafés and restaurants where you can sit, sipping coffee or something stronger and watch the world go by. Behind the harbour frontage you will find a criss-cross of busy streets that contain some wonderful shopping opportunities, Marseille's theatre land and any number of interesting historic buildings.
At night, Marseille offers something for everyone too. Theatre, opera and classical concerts, as well as live music venues catering to every taste.
Corniche des Cretes / Cassis
The spectacular coast road that links Cassis to La Ciotat is a ride well worth taking, with its impressive views out across the Mediterranean and of the stunning coastal inlets. It is approximately an hours drive South of Pont-Royal and you will have to go through Marseille but it is worthwhile.
Cassis is a beautiful old fishing village that has become a very smart resort. The place bustles with activity and is rated by some as better than Saint-Tropez. Excellent beaches and swimming in the deep blue waters make this the best seaside destination from Pont-Royal.
