Car: Recommended

The farmhouse is ideally located in the heart of the Provence and the Camargue close to Les Baux-de-Provence and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

All year long, the guests of Fontvieille are rocked to the rhythm of the Provencal traditions and its rich cultural heritage.

Fontvieille offers you its landscape as a painting with scents of thyme and rosemary and the song of the cicadas.

On the surrounding hills, the 4 wind mills stand, honoured to be the source of the “Lettres de mon Moulin” of Alphonse Daudet.

La Vallée des Baux

In the heart of the Alpilles, Les Baux-de-Provence, prestigious village listed among the most beautiful of France, offers a magical wild setting.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where there is an atmosphere that everybody loves, is a place of interest thanks to its history, charisma and culture.

Arles-la-Romaine

Arles which is very close is a welcoming and tradition land and an antique city with rich monuments that gave it its name of small Roman Gaul. The town and its many Roman ruins are listed Unesco World Heritage for their cultural interest.

Avignon (cultural and artistic town)

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (its pilgrimage, its fortified church that watches the herds of bulls and horses).

Port-Camargue (first marina in Europe)

Owner info

About the owner: My grandparents purchased this property in 1955. After an experience of around 10 years in the hotel industry, I started to work in agriculture and opened my gîtes in 1995. I am very attached to this farmhouse, to its history

Why the Owner Chose Fontvieille:
This estate purchased by my grandparents is the result of many years of hard work and passion I wanted to work in the hotel industry and be able to maintain this property that I love so much The gîtes appeared to me as an evident aim.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Thanks to our hospitality experience, we decided to offer a different approach to tourism: closer to our guests and more convivial. The property is ideally located between the Provence and the Camargue Gîtes are quiet and very comfortable with nice services, quality furniture and irreproachable cleanliness. Each year we improve the quality of each gîte and we do our best to ensure an excellent stay in Provence to our guests.
