Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in the Alpilles, France your home away from home

The Alpilles are a chain of limestone hills extending from the Luberon Mountains in Provence, France. The Alpilles manage to perfectly embody the peace, harmony and beauty of Provence, making them an almost essential place to visit from a holiday rental anywhere in Provence.

Things to do in the Alpilles, France

The Alpilles are a fantastic destination for walkers. The Alpilles are awash with almond, apricot and olive groves, whose blossom simply adds to the already stunning scenery. The views from the top of the Alpilles are stunning, and the regions ancient agricultural heritage can be explored through the ruins of the windmills, some of which still line the top of the ridge. The Scots Pine and oak woodlands that cover much of the lower slopes make walking and mountain biking in the summer months a delight, shaded from the heat of the summer sun. There are numerous shaded paths to tread, whether on foot, on horseback or on a mountain bike.

The long history in the Alpilles has left numerous historical attractions of note. The Tarascon Fortress is among the most impressive sites, but with the amazing medieval heritage of Baux-de-Provence, the beautiful Romanesque churches of St Gabriel (to choose just one) and the abbeys, aqueducts and agricultural buildings that adorn the countryside, it is hard to single out any individual monument.

The Alpilles is an amazingly traditional region. Nowhere clings to traditional lifestyles so naturally and fully than they do in the Alpilles, which makes it a magnificent destination, which is always a joy to visit. There are a great range of events, festivals and celebrations occurring throughout the villages of the Alpilles and throughout the year, from the Festival of Transhumance (moving of cattle) to the Feast Days of St Eloi, vast Christmas events (including feasts and markets) to bullfighting.

Places to visit on holiday in Alpilles, France

The village of St-Remy-de-Provence is a beautifully grandiose village of Roman origin, whose centre is fantastically elegant and surrounded by remnants of 14th century defensive walls. You can spend many days exploring the numerous attractions in St-Remy-de-Provence, pausing for refreshments in the many great restaurants and cafes within the town. However, it is Wednesdays that really draw crowds to St-Remy-de-Provence as the large weekly market descends on the town.

The ancient village of Orgon stands on the banks of the River Durance, at the bottom of the Alpilles. Known for its Neolithic, roman and medieval monuments, Orgon is filled with important historic sites, but also offers a perfect base from which to explore the whole of the Alpilles region. Orgon is an excellent walking, climbing and horse riding centre, with a packed calendar of events during the summer, especially in the large outdoor amphitheatre.

Les-Baux-de-Provence is a truly astonishing village, which cannot fail to inspire anyone who has the pleasure to visit. High in the Alpilles, the ruins of castles, palaces and royal vestiges are nothing short of incredible, clinging to the cliffs almost miraculously. Although the tourist crowds can become quite large during the summer months, it should certainly not put you off visiting this remarkable village.

The house is lovely and a real home from home. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The house and gardens are well maintained and very clean. There are three bedrooms in the main building and a further double room with a shower en suite in the annex. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate laundry room. We loved the outside area which was well shaded and provided a great space for outdoor dining. The garden and pool (secured by a fence) are very pretty and provided a safe space for our granddaughter to play. Julien and Laetitia the cleaner are very helpful - nothing is too much trouble for them and they are keen to ensure your stay is a good experience. The location of the house is perfect - being located just outside the centre of the town it is very quiet and private but it is still within easy walking distance of the centre. The centre of St Remy is a maze of tiny streets filled with cafes, restaurants and shops. We would definitely return - it is one of the nicest holiday houses we have stayed in.

The house was decorated in the most chic & sophisticated way & was very very comfortable with generously proportioned rooms & all the amenities you could want. The grounds were lovely with mature trees & attractive views wherever you looked. The local town was delightful-small & untouristy but with convenient shops & cafes. The area is interesting too with Arles & St Remy near by. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
