    About this property

    Paradise in Provence

    Historic vacation home in Les Baux-de-Provence with outdoor tennis court
    Set in fifteen acres, Baubesse nestles in the beautiful Alpilles hills close to Les Baux-de-Provence, an ancient village perched high on a crag, a short drive from St-Rémy-de-Provence. The area is a mecca for ramblers, joggers and cyclists. The house is surrounded by pine and mulberry trees, cypresses and oaks with wonderful views on all sides. Behind is a fine olive grove and in front, the view stretches over unspoiled countryside to where the Mediterranean can be glimpsed on the horizon. It overlooks the brand new Domaine de Manville golf course. The garden around the secluded swimming pool on one side of La Bergerie, is planted with lavender and rosemary and surrounded by wild mountain landscape. The infinity pool is heated for swimming from April to October. In your deck chair you can see the cliffs of Les Baux, France’s Mount Rushmore, with a reasonable facsimile of George Washington. Five minutes away by car you can pick up fresh croissant, and local fruit and veg in the village of Maussane. The vibrant village has a prize-winning greengrocer, fishmonger, butchers and bakers, as well as a bank, a post office and hairdressers. The main square is lined with shady plane trees and packed with restaurants, and café terraces to sip a pastis or eat a pizza. A local winery (Mas de la Dame) and an olive oil producer (Castelas) are just moments away. Les Baux is right in the heart of Provence, ideally positioned for short excursions and day trips. It is a short distance and well worth a visit to see the magnificent ruins of the medieval château and the world-famous Carriere des Lumieres sound and light show. Its beautiful winding walk to the promontory will be hardly felt while you stand transfixed before the charming and tempting boutiques on the way. When Queen Elizabeth came to France she visited Paris---and Les Baux. A recent addition to Les Baux is the new golf course, and the five star hotel where you can go for an aperitif before heading back to cook your barbecue at Baubesse. A detached house alongside the main house is sometimes available during the month of August at a slight extra cost.

        Отдых мечты

        Рай в Провансе? Почему бы и нет. Место исключительно уединенное и живописное. За спиной горные уступы заповедника les Alpilles, а прямо перед глазами виноградники и оливковые рощи Прованса до самого горизонта. В ясную погоду можно даже разглядеть побережье. До Les Baux de Provence можно при желании дойти пешком, до ближайшей деревни Maussane 3-4 километра, с машиной это считанные минуты пути. Дом солидный, основательный, просторный и, будь у меня больше опыта наверное, можно было бы сказать, что это типичный mas provencale. Впрочем, интерьеры таких домов я видел только на картинках, поэтому то, что мы увидели, иначе чем дом-музей XVIII-XIX века и не назовешь. Колоссальных размеров библиотека, огромный камин во всю стену, фортепьяно, картины, подсвечники и вместе с этим вся необходимая современная техника - холодильник с льдогенератором, посудомоечная, стиральная, кофе-машина. На участке вместительный чистый бассейн с подогревом и подсветкой. Хозяин Ниссим - гостеприимный и доброжелательный, дал много полезных советов и даже сварил борщ!

          Property with Soul

          This property has soul, and Nissim is the perfect guardian. We have just left and our children (ages 6 and 11) are already asking when we will return. We all immediately felt right at home. Nissim went above and beyond to make sure that we were well taken care of, but also left with enough space and privacy to discover our own Provence. For our first night, he made us a dinner reservation at a wonderful small restaurant in town (Fleur de Thym) and took my husband into town for a quick overview of his favorite shops and restaurants. And on the last day, he came by the house with fresh croissants, a baguette for the road, and a New York Times. That was such a thoughtful gesture, and so welcomed. The kitchen and linen closets were fully stocked and there was not one thing that we wanted that the house didn't have. In fact, there were many family friendly surprises that the home came with that we didn't expect, including a ping pong table, pool toys, boules, and a piano. The beds were all very comfortable, especially those pillows! Note that while you can walk to town (a hearty walk) you will need a car to access anything beyond that. Also, while the weather in the summer is generally hot and dry, the Mistral wind can kick in and really cool things off. We were happy to make a fire and settle in with books. Highlights of our time here included: - Castle at Les Baux - Les Carrieres de Lumieres - Evenings on the square in Maussane - Hike in Les Alpilles - Boat ride to Les Calanques in Cassis - La Course Camarguaise in Arles - Pool time and the VIEWS from the house! The only thing that we regret is that we only stayed one week. We look forward to returning. Thank you, thank you Nissim!

            August in the Alpilles

            We booked the beautiful villa Baubesse near les Baux de Provence for a week's relaxing getaway and the pictures didn't do it justice. The setting is stunning, nestled in the foothills of the Alpilles with a view stretching to the Camargue. The owner Nissim couldn't have been more hospitable! So we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Every day we would walk in the Alpilles on tracks from the villa and relax by the pool in the afternoons. Nearby St Remy is worth a visit and can be reached on foot or by bus. There are lots of good restaurants nearby too but eating while enjoying the view was too good to pass up. All in all it was the highlight of our holiday and one of the nicest villas we have stayed in for some time. We would happily return.

            5/5 Excellent

              Lovely

              The house is in a stunning location. Nissim, the owner is a gracious, friendly, and most helpful host. Our five children loved the pool and the space to roam. It is a perfect location for exploring Provence. We wish that we had more time to stay. It is a very special place.
