The property is located in the centre of the tiny village of Puyvert.
2 minutes drive to one of France's most beautiful villages; Lourmarin, with its winding streets and many pavement cafés and bars and traditional restaurants. Lovely, weekly street market. If you can bear to leave the car at the house, its a fabulous 20 minutes walk to this village.
Two tennis courts within 2 km. Golf 10 km.
Further choice of shops and restaurants in Lauris (2 minutes drive). All major supermarkets and stores in Pertuis, 15 minutes.
The famous and chic village of Saint-Rémy is just 50 minutes away, while Arles and Avignon are less than 1 hour away.
One of France's premier tourist attractions, Les Baux lies just 1 hour away; an 11th century village built into the rocks.
The Roman town of Arles is close-by. 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 Friday. 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 50 minutes.
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.
The Camargue and the fabulous beaches on the South coast are all within easy driving distance.
« We recently had the pleasure of staying at your wonderful house in Puyvert from August the 8th. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves not least because of the beautiful surroundings and lovely home you have created.
I have never been to Puyvert or the surrounding area before, but can understand why you have chosen a house in such a beautiful part of France.
Once again just to say thank you very much indeed. » Fleetwood family (London, UK)

The set up was perfect for us - a spacious house, an abundance of outside space, the wonderful summer kitchen, the perfect pool and lovely views. I cannot find any fault or any real suggestions for improvement. » Haines family
