La Bastide des Alpilles

Introduction

Outstanding, architect-designed contemporary home in the traditional style. This wonderful Provençal bastide home sits on the edge of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, one of the most elite, sought-after destinations in the South of France. The picturesque town features an array of superb café bars and restaurants amongst its winding streets. All shops and great weekly market - all within easy walking distance from the house (10 minutes).

The property itself sits in 2,500 m² of private grounds with long, private drive and extensive lawned garden.
South and West terraces feature shaded dining area and seating area with conservatory furniture. All overlooking the lovely private pool 8m x 4m with lawn-surround and sun loungers.

Tasteful and very high-quality interior with living accommodation over two floors, fully air-conditioned. Superb, Provençal, farmhouse-style kitchen with superior appliances and lovely breakfast table. Door leads out to the dining terrace and garden.
Dining room and charming, double-aspect living room with large, flat-screen TV, DVD and Wi-Fi internet.
Ground floor bedroom with large bathroom.

Three further bedrooms on the 2nd floor including master suite with large ensuite bathroom.

Weekly maid service and pool towels included.

The countryside surrounding Saint-Rémy is quite beautiful and typically Provençal; garrigues full of wild herbs and olive trees.

One of France's premier tourist attractions, Les Baux lies just 10 minutes away; an 11th century village built into the rocks.

The Roman town of Arles is also only a 30 minutes drive. Many Roman and Romanesque monuments are still in use today; the amphitheatre provides the setting for bullfights and concerts, and what remains of the theatre plays host to formal concerts and traditional folk festivities throughout the year.

Just over an hour to the Mediterranean coast (lovely beaches and town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer).

Location

The property is situated in a residential, open country setting, on the edge of Saint Rémy de Provence.

4 minutes walk to local shops and bakery.

Saint-Rémy itself (10 minutes walk) is one of the loveliest towns in the whole of Provence. All amenities and huge choice of traditional restaurants and pavement cafés and bars. Magnificent tree-lined boulevards and winding streets make this one of the most sought-after towns in France.

Unmissable street market every Wednesday.

The countryside surrounding Saint-Rémy is quite beautiful and typically Provençal; garrigues full of wild herbs and olive trees.

One of France's premier tourist attractions, Les Baux lies just 10 minutes away; an 11th century village built into the rocks.

The Roman town of Arles is also only a 30 minutes drive. Many Roman and Romanesque monuments are still in use today; the amphitheatre provides the setting for bullfights and concerts, and what remains of the theatre plays host to formal concerts and traditional folk festivities throughout the year. The Cathédrale Saint-Trophime, with its magnificent doorway depicting the Last Judgement carved in stone and its beautiful cloisters, is open to the public for visits and Sunday services.
The necropolis, or Alyscamps, is today a narrow, tree-lined avenue, located just outside the old town.

Many lovely restaurants and pavement cafés. Van Gogh spent two years of his life here, so there are many related tours and souvenirs to be found.

Arles also boasts one of the regions finest markets every Wednesday and Saturday. Overflowing with Provençal goodies - fruits and vegetables, lavender products, soaps, olives, flowers, honey...The list is endless and makes the Arles market an event not to be missed!

Also not to be missed is a day out to Avignon to discover the winding streets and lovely Provençal shops. Here you'll find the wonderful 'Pope's Palace' - the former home of the Pope which really is spectacular. And the infamous ‘half-bridge’!

Spectacular, fortified town of Aigues-Mortes 40 minutes.

Just over an hour to the Mediterranean coast (lovely beaches and town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer).

For wine lovers, this is paradise; domaines and tasting almost on every corner.

The lovely Camargue National Park lies close by. You really will see black bulls, pink flamingos and white horses. Many horse and pony-trekking ranches and great choice of Mediterranean beaches.
