The property is located near Maussane-les-Alpilles is a regional market town of some 5,000 people. Every week, its colorful street market draws people from surrounding villages looking for the local olive oil (that it's well known for) and for other fresh products. The town has cafés, restaurants, pharmacy, hairdresser, and all the shops and services you would expect from a regional hub. Ten minutes to the north is the famous village of Les Baux de Provence, which is also a wonderful site.
Arles is the closest town: former capital of Roman Gaul and symbol of a radiating Christian past, Arles’s renown has spread abroad because of a famous painter who decided to stay there: Vincent Van Gogh. Arles has become an important touristic center with an exceptional heritage from antiquity. Not to be missed: Saint-Trophime church & cloister, Montmajour Abbey, the Roman amphitheater & the antiques arenas. Farther, La Camargue, located 40-50 minutes drive from the property, is actually a peninsula enclosed between the Rhône and the Mediterranean, that owes its origin and its very nature to water. A complex drainage and irrigation system has allowed its resources to be put to better use. The area left to nature has preserved much of its original biological wealth.
The closest expressway is the A54 at Saint-Martin de Crau. The closest airports are the Marseille-Provence International Airport (approximately 40 minutes drive away from the house) and Nîmes-Garons airport (about 40 minutes drive as well). Both have daily flights to/from Paris & London. Otherwise most international flight connections are made through Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport. The TGV train at Aix-Les-Milles station is about 40 minutes away as well – depending on the traffic. The TGV runs from Paris to Avignon in 2 hours and 40 minutes.
