Description from manager

“Set in total tranquillity, La Ferme is an old farmhouse which has been converted into a summer villa. Located near Baux de Provence, La Ferme is nestled into the rock at the heart of Provence and is surrounded by 4 hectares of parkland”.La Ferme is a former farmhouse that has been completely renovated by its artistic owners. The property is surrounded by four hectares of pine and olive parkland (the essence of Provence), and there are also gypsy trailers in the back yard which make this property a unique pace to stay. La Ferme is bathed in natural light consistently throughout the day, but stays fresh thanks to the air conditioning system. 
The farmhouse is mainly all on one level and can accommodate up to 8 people, each room unique in style. It has a wonderful living room with dining area and open fireplace, and a fully equipped modern kitchen with American fridge/freezer. Both rooms have large patio doors which open onto the terrace and pool area. There are four spacious bedrooms with two bathrooms and two shower rooms, a wonderful terrace to dine al fresco and just beyond that is a secure enclosed 6 x 12 m pool.

This area of Provence boasts history and stunning scenery, not only of the Alpilles hills but also of the ruined castle which dominates the landscape surrounding Les Baux. The castle can be traced back to the 10th century. The local people finally destroyed it in 1632 to bring an end to the centuries of conflicts, revolts, sieges, and wars of religion, which had taken place there. Today, quaint artisan shops and restaurants line the tiny cobbled streets. A wider range of amenities can be found at Mausanne les Alpilles and at St Remy de Provence, birthplace of Nostradamus, both of which are within easy reach of the farmhouse.

25 minutes’ drive north from this Les Baux de Provence farmhouse, is the medieval Papal city of Avignon, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and site of the world’s biggest gothic palace. The city of Arles is just to the south with an impressive Roman arena, once holding 20,000 spectators. This is the gateway to the wetlands of the Camargue with its diverse wildlife ranging from pink flamingos to white horses and black fighting bulls.
