The area is predominantly agricultural and unspoilt.

The main industries being Wine growing, Olives and Truffles and in the nearby village of Salernes famous for its production of Provencal tiles.

All the villages are unhurried and their narrow streets reveal a wealth of small restaurants, bars, local shops, and each village has a weekly or twice weekly market.

Paris can be reached via the TGV rail Station of Les Arcs about 25 minutes to the south and takes about 4 hours or for a quicker journey join the TGV in Aix en Provence and in only 3 hours you reach the Gàre de Lyon in Paris.

About the Owner

We have lived for over 20 years in Provence enjoying the wonderful life that it offers. However now due to family we now spend half our year in France and half in the UK, as well as travelling to places of interest in the world, we hope you will appreciate staying at a house with all the comforts of a home.

A jewel of a house in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful house at the beginning of July 2014. The setting is great - an easy walk into the charming village of Villecroze for morning croissants or meals in the pretty square. And the house itself is light, spacious, very comfortable and full of character. All the rooms have been furnished, decorated and equipped to such a high standard that it is a clearly a much loved home. The sunny terraces, the pretty garden and the wonderful heated pool were an absolute delight. All in all a wonderful place for a holiday and we would love to return.
