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.

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.

One week is definitely too short to appreciate all that the region has to offer and all that Mas Aurelia has for you to enjoy and relax. Management is second to none, with owners you'd soon be calling friends.

We visited from the UK as a family of five and absolutely loved spending our two week holiday there. Mr and Mrs Savin were wonderful hosts, providing us with invaluable advice on the attractions in the vicinity as well as lots of local produce to eat. They even cooked us a welcome meal on our arrival day! We could not have wished for anything more. The pool area at the rear of the house is quiet and secluded and the pool itself is a lovely size for family fun. We spent many happy afternoons there after visiting such places as Avignon (the evening light show in the Palais de Papes is truly spectacular), Arles (the Roman amphitheatre hosted a fabulous demonstration of Carmargue life), and canoeing under the famous Pont du Gard. Nearby towns such as St Remy de Provence, Gordes and Les Baux de Provence were fascinating to wander around, and on every day there seemed to be a market close to the villa in which we could linger... The villa is beautifully decorated and the inside spaces are as comfortable as those outside. There is every convenience that a visitor can wish for, including a fantastically stocked kitchen, super fast Wifi and air conditioning to make the warm, sultry nights more enjoyable. Each morning before breakfast we even used the villa's bikes to cycle into the nearby village to buy fresh breads. Overall we can heartily recommend this property as a base to spend both a relaxing and action-packed holiday, according to whatever you wish for. We barely scratched the surface of all that was available for us to do in the area and we will definitely be back!

The location was ideal, it was only a short distance from the centre of Saint Remy which has wonderful restaurants and shops and Avignon was less than 15mins away. Our children attended school in Avignon and were able to take the bus home which stopped right at the top of the street-made it so easy! We spent a lot of time by the pool which was very private and sheltered. The owners were lovely, welcoming & so helpful. They took amazing care of the property and responded immediately to any issue that arouse. My husband & I are avid bike riders and found the area to be an ideal training ground for us and so easy to get around. We had some family visit us while we were there and having the separate pool house was great to allow us all our own space but still be nearby. We would recommend this property to family & friends to stay for a short or long stay. You will be looked after from start to finish by both the manager and the landlords themselves.
