Rentals here are traditional and authentic, with centuries-old architecture, and interiors bursting with character.

Things to do

-Local sights. Minutes away is Baux-de-Provence, a village popular for its considerable beauty, elevated views and tumultuous history. Here you’ll see preserved architecture from the 1400s and 1500s, including churches and grand townhouses. Also from the 1400s is the imposing Chateau de Tarrascon, which sits next to the Rhône River just to the west of Saint-Étienne-du-Grès.

-Outdoor activities. In Les Alpilles Natural Park you can witness landscapes that have won many admirers down the years, among them the artist Vincent van Gogh. It has a blend of pine forest and terraced farmland, home to orchards, olive groves and vineyards, all beneath stark rocky peaks. On walks and bike rides you’ll come across old chapels and even the remnants of a Roman city at Glanum, just south of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

-Roman Heritage. Saint-Étienne-du-Grès sits in the middle of an area packed with ancient history, boasting some of the finest structures in the former Roman world. In Arles and Nîmes see fabulous temples, aqueducts, amphitheatres and more. Nîmes’ Maison Carré, an intact temple, is a must-see. The Pont du Gard is another - it’s a fragment of a 50-kilometre-long, 2,000 year-old aqueduct, at this point crossing the Gardon River.

-Avignon. Outstanding among Avignon’s many postcard-worthy sights is the majestic Palace of the Popes. This UNESCO-listed building was the seat of western Christianity during the Catholic Schism, and saw five different popes in the 1300s. It’s also a prominent piece of Gothic architecture, with both a ceremonial and defensive role, evidenced by its battlements and towers.

-Food and drink. In recent years local wineries and olive mills have thrown open their doors to visitors for tours and tasting evenings. Some local wineries even offer short courses in Oenology, for those who want to understand every part of the winemaking process. When it comes to olive oil, the Baux Valley, covering 70% of the park, has an AOC label with 12 different olive mills and 350,000 individual trees.

Weather in Saint-Étienne-du-Grès

The climate here is Mediterranean, with warm summers that get little rainfall. If you visit a holiday rental in Saint-Étienne-du-Grès any time between May and September then it will be worth preparing for lots of sunshine. Highs range from 25 to 33 degrees in this season and significant rain only arrives at the end of the summer. Autumn is the wettest season of the year, with pleasantly warm days that can bring sudden storms. On a typical winter’s day in Saint-Étienne-du-Grès you’ll get highs of around ten degrees, while temperatures only occasionally go sub-zero at night.

Travel to Saint-Étienne-du-Grès

The most convenient airport to the village of Saint-Étienne-du-Grès is Avignon-Caumont (AVN), which is a small destination with a couple of seasonal routes from Britain. Many visitors to holiday homes in Saint-Étienne-du-Grès will need to use Marseille-Provence (MRS), which is 90 kilometres from the village but served by a wealth of airlines. From Marseille you can take the A7 and A54 autoroutes, before joining the D99 at Arles. For an alternative, Avignon has TGV links to Paris, Lille and Lyon, as well as Brussels and Amsterdam in the summer.

                                                            Well-equipped villa in a pretty Provençal village

                                                            La Bastide des Oliviers is a lovely, very well equipped villa in the village of St Etienne du Gres, at the western end of Provence and close to a plethora of interesting and charming places to visit. 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!

                                                            This is the perfect place! The equipment is exceeding all expectations. And it´s all so lovely decorated. But even better is the surrounding. It´s so quite and you are definitely in nature. Bruno supported us with good tips on activities and we were even supplied with fresh vegetables from his garden. He is always there for questions which is good to know. We would love to come back again! It´s also a good starting point for trips to in that area. Naomi and Nicolas
