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.

Autumn is the wettest season of the year, with pleasantly warm days that can bring sudden storms.

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.

It is wonderfully situated in the heart of the old town and just a minute's walk to pick up provisions. The layout of the apartment is lovely, it is very well equipped, and we particularly enjoyed using the pretty terrace in the evenings for bbq and a glass of wine - such a bonus to have in an apartment with a great central location. Communication with Thierry before our stay was great and Delphine, the local contact during our stay, was extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend. Thank you again.

Martin was very helpful about the local area and suggestions of where to go. He has good english. The cottage is done out with style and very well equipped. It is in an extremely peaceful lovely garden shared with the owners, who are very discreet. The cottage is screened with bamboos.
