Les Baux de Provence are one of the highly select group of Most Beautiful Villages in France, a title it owes to the rarity and diversity of its heritage as well as the quality of its environment and town layout. Located on a rocky plateau in the heart of the Alpilles, the town of Les Baux-de-Provence provides a breathtaking panoramic view down over Arles and the Camargue. It has been patiently restored and now boasts a historical and architecture heritage consisting of 22 listed buildings. The Castle, is a unique reminder of medieval history, the Romanesque and Renaissance Saint Vincent's Church, has beautiful stained-glass windows by Max Ingrand, the Renaissance Window Post Tenebras Lux is a reminder of the Huguenot influence in the 16th century, the private mansions built in the 16th and 17th centuries are now art galleries and museums, among them the Musée Yves Brayer and Musée de Santons, the Louis Jou Foundation contains yet more treasures and, finally, there is the Town Hall housed in the former private residence known as the Hôtel de Manville.
In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental “Carrières de Lumières” in Les Baux-de-Provence host extraordinary multimedia shows which are unique in the world.
The nearby villages of Maussane and Saint Remy de Provence offer a variety of typical cafes and restaurants and colorful open air markets throughout the year.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Karin and Mathieu have been living in London for 7 years with two young children. They have lived in several large cities in Europe but they feel at home in Provence, where they spend 2 months every year.
Why the Owner Chose Les Baux de Provence: After vacationing several years in hotels in the area, we fell in love with this corner of France which combines unspoilt nature, beautiful old buildings and a special 'art de vivre'. So when we were offered to buy this 1750 typical Provence Mas with its thick walls and a lovely garden offering breathtaking views onto the old perched village of Les Baux, it did not take us long to reach a decision. We have had fantastic moments in this house every year since
The Unique Benefits at this House: The village of Les Baux sits in the Parc Naturel des Alpilles, a small mountain chain who offers unique landscapes, with the minerals of the limestone mixing with the soft green of the olive trees. The house has kept many original features and we like the fact that it has a long history as a peasant Mas in the 1800's and 1900's. It has also been entirely redecorated in 2010 by a renowned interior designer and featured in several magazines and websites (see links). The combination of antique furniture and paintings with contemporary design creates a very cozy interior. From the garden and the pool, you will enjoy views of the well known village of Les Baux, labeled 'one of the most beautiful village in France'. This exceptional view is enjoyed by only a few houses in the area.
