Five bedroom villa in Les Baux dating back to Roman times, surrounded by wonderful restaurants.

Provence/France Villa 10

Step into a formidable piece of history at Les Baux de Provence. This luxury villa is a remarkable property dating back to Roman times. Built right into the rocks beneath the ruins of a famous chateaux, the refurbished villa offers every modern convenience within a setting that is centuries old. The fabulous panoramas over olive groves and vineyards stretches out to the Camargue in the east and the Mediterranean Sea to the south.

The villa features a curved pool with an infinity edge overlooking the lush green mountainside. The grounds also include a summer kitchen with a gas grill. A choice of two terraces provide lovely alfresco dining and lounging options. Inside, you will find satellite TV, a DVD player, Wi-Fi access, a library and a study.

The high quality decor is impressive and includes several contemporary works of art and furniture by the celebrated designers Philip Stark and Emanuel Hook. Yet, almost everywhere you look, the uneven stone walls hearken back to a bygone era of gladiators and centurions. In the rooms that have retained the original walls of this residence, the exposed wooden beams provide another glimpse back into the historical design. The kitchen comes equipped with all the modern necessities for the culinary genius of the group.

Five magnificent bedrooms, several of which retain traditional walls, accommodate up to ten guests at Les Baux de Provence. The bedroom on the first floor of the main house provides access to a large Roman-style bathroom with a bathtub, a relaxing bedside fireplace and a private terrace. The bedrooms on the ground floor provide direct access to the terrace, pool deck and summer kitchen.

Nearby Isle Sur La Sorgue, a mirage-like city built around a series of canals, makes a fabulous historical site to visit during your stay in Provence. For golfers there are several excellent courses in the area such as the picturesque nine hole Golf des Baux-de-Provence and the lovely eighteen hole Golf de Servanes at Mouriès. Golf de Nîmes as well as Golf de Pont Royal, perhaps the finest course in the region, are both less than forty minutes away. History and leisure combine in an unparalleled Provencal style at Les Baux de Provence!

Recommended Local Restaurants

La Cabro d'Or-D27,13520 LES BAUX-DE-PROVENCE Tel +33490543307 www.baumaniere.com/gastronomie This restaurant is in a superb location with a lime tree-shaded terrace offering peerless views over the peaks that make this region famous. As does its olive oil, used to great effect in the cuisine here - an ode to the flavours of Provence. Moderate-upper moderate pricing.

La Table-AU GOLF, 13520 LES BAUX-DE-PROVENCE Tel +33490544020 www.domainedemanville.fr Within the luxurious Domaine de Manville, this impeccable restaurant pays a vibrant tribute to regional tradition. How could it be otherwise in this gorgeous spot at the foot of the Alpilles and Les Baux? The terrace beneath the century-old plane trees is reminiscent of a Pagnol novel. Simpler menu in the Bistrot. Expensive

L'Oustau de Baumanière-VILLAGE DES BAUX-DE-PROVENCE, 13520 LES BAUX-DE-PROVENCE Tel +33490543307 Renowned restaurant rated Two Stars by Michelin. The majesty of this 16C Provençal country house doesn't detract from the cuisine. Indeed the chef concocts intensely flavoured dishes that take inspiration from the region, and alternates long-established favourites with more modern flashes of inspiration. In fine weather you can eat on the superb shady terrace looking out over the Alpilles. Expensive to very expensive.

Le Bistrot du Paradou-57 av. de la Vallée-des-Baux, 13520 Paradou Tel 04 90 54 32 70 2.5 kms away. No website but very special. Inexpensive to moderate.

"The owner, the managers could not have been more helpful and kind. It was a great experience in a very special villa, as private as could be, with spectacular and unobstructed views in all directions. Really marvelous."-June 10, 2017
