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.

There are a great number of airports receiving direct flights from the UK in the Alpilles area. Marseille (MRS) and Avignon-Caumont (AVN) are both within 45 minutes of any of the holiday rental properties in the Alpilles.

The house is beautiful, well decorated, clean, and large with plenty of space for everyone (there were 6 of us). The owner very kindly provided us with a (free) Christmas tree and baubles for my children to decorate- they were delighted. The house does not have central heating but the wall heaters in all the rooms kept us warm and as there is also a fire place (logs provided and included in the price) which was truly cosy and also provided more warmth and created a wonderful atmosphere. The owner Georges, and Patricia, the lady who looks after the house, were both very helpful and very patient (especially as we arrived two hours late). We had a lovely holiday over Christmas and New Year. Saint-Rémy de Provence itself is very beautiful and very near local attractions (do go and see the Roman sites- they are amazing!), so was a good choice. Thank you so much for having made us feel so welcome! :-)

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The house is lovely and much thought has gone into everything to make for a trouble free and pleasant stay. The beds are all SO comfortable! From the welcome by Laetitia who was waiting fro us to the time we left it was just a perfect place to be.....close enough to walk into the charming centre of St Remy but a very quiet, safe location for good rest at night! We had no transport of our own but used a local taxi company suggested by Julien or the local buses to visit a few places further afield.....Avignon, Les Baux ( a visit to the amazing Cathedrale des Images set in the old Bauxite mines is a must) and Tarascon with its amazing castle and legend of the mythical beast Tarasc who was said to creep out of the Camargue and wreak havoc in days gone by!! St Remy abounds in restaurants and cafes ( and the delicious icecream needs a mention) from which to watch the world go by over a pastis or kir and coffee and there are many narrow pedestrian streets where wandering and watching was a joy. The local market on Wednesdays is superb with a happy atmosphere. Thank you to Julien for providing yet another bottle of 'bubbly' on Anne's birthday, such a lovely touch. We all voted it a marvellous holiday.

The pool and aircon were much appreciated during our stay when the weather was hot. The owners John and Isabelle were particularly welcoming and most helpful. The village and surrounding area is very attractive and there is much of interest to see and do. I wholeheartedly recommend this gite.
