Description

A true gem of Provence, L'Esplanade offers charm and character in beautiful grounds just a five-minute drive from the delightful town of Saint-Remy.

This beautiful abode is all about relaxing in wonderful surroundings whether in the grand living room with its picture book windows or outside under the old shady trees, drinking local brandy at the end of a glorious day. The interiors have been thoughtfully styled from the spacious living area around the old fireplace to the grand kitchen-diner with its contemporary fittings alongside antique pieces. Each of the seven bedrooms across the house and annexe have been warmly decorated in Provencal colours, featuring air-conditioning and many with handsome en suite bathrooms.

Spend lazy days with family or friends, challenging each other to a game of boules, ping-pong or table football, pottering around on the bikes or splashing around in the wonderful swimming pool, looking out to the glorious grounds around you. A covered terrace, beautifully lit up at night, is the perfect place to gather for long meals en famille, creating feasts on the barbecue or chatting late into the night with loved ones on long summer evenings.

The well-known town of Saint-Remy is only a five-minute drive away, a great place for its restaurants, cafes, art galleries and overall Provencal charm. Head in early on a Wednesday morning for the vibrant market to pick up all sorts of regional delights and look out for festivities and events that take place throughout the summer.

Discover the idyllic landscapes of Les Alpilles with its vineyards, olive groves and mountain scenery. Spend time in wonderful villages such as Eygalieres, Maussane-les-Alpilles and Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France's 'Plus Beaux Villages'.

#### Location
L'Esplanade is set in the beautiful Alpilles Regional Nature Park, just a short drive from the lovely town of Saint-Remy-de-Provence.

Saint-Remy (4km) has a fine reputation in Provence and is popular with visitors for good reason. You can soak up the charm and ambience of Saint-Remy just by wandering around the narrow cobbled lanes, coming across picturesque art galleries and studios, dining in little bistros or head to one of the cafes under the plane trees for a coffee or glass of local wine. The Wednesday morning market spills out over the lovely squares and streets of the old town and you can pick up all sorts of regional delights such as olive products, lavender, honey, cured meats, cheeses and of course seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Les Alpilles is an incredible region offering beautiful landscapes of vineyards, olive groves, undulating hills and striking mountains. Activities including wonderful walking paths, cycling trails, horse-riding and even rock-climbing.

Enjoy the awe-inspring scenery from Les Baux-de-Provence (13km), one of France's ‘Plus Beaux Villages', a medieval village built high up on a fortified rocky site which is full of history and charm – visit early to avoid the crowds. Maussane-les-Alpilles (13km) is a very pleasant place to go for a long lunch whether a good pizzeria or a Michelin starred restaurant and make sure you pick up some of France's finest olive oil whilst you are there. Eygalieres (15km) is another delightful village in Les Alpilles and is even favoured by a couple of A-list celebrities who have discreetly bought houses there.

You are also in a great location for visiting the small and historic city of Avignon (18km) with its great food markets, excellent restaurants and bars as well as the two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Palais des Papes and the famous bridge. History lovers may also want to spend a day in Nimes (47km) with its Roman ruins and the extraordinary Pont-du-Gard (38km), another UNESCO World Heritage site and a great spot for hiring canoes, kayaks or simply enjoying a picnic by the water's edge.

To the south is Arles (27km), another fine place filled with history and art and also the gateway to the amazing landscapes of the Camargue. To the east is the mesmerising Luberon region filled with mountains, incredible hiking, cycling and idyllic villages such as Gordes, Lacoste, Roussillon, Menerbes and more, all about an hour away.
