There is a Weber Premium gas barbecue and the outdoor deckchairs with mattress are waiting for you.

This farmhouse is exceptionally located on the listed site of Les Baux-de-Provence. Many stars and authors including Frederic Mistral found refuge there and left many signs of their passage. It is completely quiet yet very close to the village of Maussane-les-Alpilles where you will find shopping and medical centres as well as many small typical restaurants in the village and the square (outdoor restaurants with automatic mist sprayer) where you can see artists and famous television presenters that often have a house in the surroundings. For gastronomy lovers, the 2 or 3 best restaurants of France are in Les Baux: La Baumanière, La Cabro d'Or, La Régalido, etc. For golfers, the wonderful 18-hole golf course of Les Baux is 500 m and the golf of Mouriès is a few minutes as are the beautiful cliffs for climbing. The fishing lovers will be delighted along the banks of the canal of the valley of Les Baux close to the village of Maussane-les-Alpilles.
You can do multiple day trips and in 2 weeks you won’t have time to visit everything. The old village of Les Baux is a must-see with its narrow streets, its several workshops, its museums, its castles and its many different shows such as concerts and exhibitions in the decor of the old Carrieres which are idyllic. In less than 10 minutes, you can reach Fontvieille, Arles or Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. A bit further, you are in the Luberon or in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer with many horse rides available through the herds of horses, ponds overflown by flamingos and beaches ideal to swim in the Mediterranean Sea.
A few metres from the farmhouse, you will find several famous wine and olive growing estates (Mas de la Dame, Sainte-Berthe, Castelas, etc.) where you can buy white wine, rosé, red wine and olive oil. A delight for your meals in La Voûte.
