The real Provence...

What says more about the South of France than Provence. Images of lavender fields, olive groves and rows of ripening vines, street cafes in medieval market squares and red mountains glinting in the sunset, and best of all – it’s all still here!

This is the real Provence, made famous by the books of Peter Mayle but still as alive and vibrant as it was centuries ago. A holiday in Provence is a holiday to remember. Villas are stone ‘mas’, spacious and exquisitely restored houses, bathed in the scent of rosemary and lavender and overlooking the miles of rolling countryside. From here you can explore the historic centres of Aix-en-Provence and St Remy de Provence, the amazing Cathedral des Papes at Avignon or the dominant fortified towns of Gordes, Bonnieux and Roussillon. There’s so much to see and do that you will always return to this stunning region.

We have an ever increasing number of beautiful villas, town houses, mas & farmhouses in this area. To view the whole collection have a look at this link - Provence Villas
