Les Baux de Provence
16 km from home.
One of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. Unique because a little magical in an extraordinary setting.
What I like: hiking or cycling around the village , the fantastic scenary, the small squares and shaded terraces at the end of the day when there are fewer people.
The Careers of Light: show sound and immersive light. This year is dedicated to Van Gogh. The paintings are projected with music on the huge limestone surfaces of the quarries ...
I just love it.
25km from home,
l really like "le Palais des papes" (Pope's Palace), the nice squares with beautiful shaded terraces and the Avignon festival .
Saint Rémy de Provence
and the Alpilles
9km from home,
The Provencal capital of the art of living. Nice and good taste shops, art galeries, locations painted by Van Gogh, Provencal market on Wednesdays. The archaeological site "Romain Glanum". The transhumance and festivities all along the year. You are in the heart of the Alpilles with beautiful villages in a incredible landscape which can be discovered by car, by bike or just by walking.
My favourites villages : Eygaliere for its atmosphere, Aureille for its landscape of scrubland.
20km from home,
Heritage from Roman civilisation, city of Van Gogh, capital of the Camargue and every year the Photographic meetings, music festivals and bull fighting... Arles is the city of art, history, classified by UNESCO.
50km from home,
Desert Spaces of water and sandlands. Bulls and horses breeding, lands of migration of birds. Camargue is a virgin earth of any urbanization. Great horse riding, biking or walking... or just have a break on the wild beaches.
L'Isle sur la Sorgue et le Lubéron
40km from home.
Capital of antiquity and "brocante" (flea market). A nice starting point to discover the Luberon and its villages, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Gorde, Roussillon, Lourmarin...
Le Mont Ventoux
80km from home
The Mont Ventoux culminates at 1912 m and dominates all the lands. At the foot of it, unfold the plain of Comtat Venaissin and the vineyards of "côtes du Ventoux", Sault and its lands of lavender. The Valley of Toulourenc and its perched villages. The antic site of Vaison la Romaine, a mythic stop of "the tour de France", a terroir which smells good the truffle, the lavender and the wine.
130km from home,
A bit more further from home but easy to do in a day. Majestic cliffs, turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, exceptional fauna and flora. You are in a dream, you are in the national Park of Creeks.
