Nestling amongst the rocks of Les Alpilles hills and with a quintessentially Provençal feel, Les Roches is just a short drive from the pretty village of Maussane-les-Alpilles.

Located in a small hamlet of houses and with its own large grounds and electric gated entrance, we’re confident guests will enjoy this gem of a villa with its contemporary interiors and en suite bedrooms. A comfortable living room with wooden beamed ceiling and plush sofas leads out to the terrace, whilst foodies are sure to embrace the open plan kitchen/diner with island and quality cooking facilities. The first floor boasts a principal double bedroom with en suite bath and shower. Two further double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms lead out to a very pleasant Juliet balcony.

The gardens consist of lush, planted areas as well as wilder spots that merge with cypress trees and majestic rocks that dominate the surrounding area. There's a shady terrace with wicker seats for dining. A pétanque area and of course a delightful private pool in which to cool off.

Maussane (5km) has restaurants and cafes as well as a supermarket for stocking up with Provençal provisions. We’d recommend a visit to one of many local olive oil producers for a true flavour of Provence. Either side of the Alpilles hills are many more pretty villages surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Les Baux-de-Provence (10km) and Saint-Remy-de-Provence (15km) are equally historic and very attractive. The larger towns of Avignon (34km) and Arles (43km) make good half or full day trips and you can fly easily to Montpellier or Marseille (60km), which are the closest airports.

  • Please note that the stairs to first floor are open with no handrails (see photos).
  • Please note barbecues are not permitted anywhere in this area for risk of forest fires. An electric plancha style is provided.
  • Please note that there is a local tourist tax to pay: £4.00 per night for guests aged 18 and over.

Great Things to Do Near Les Roches

Enjoying the great outdoors in the Alpilles

The Alpilles natural park, on your doorstep, is great for walking and mountain biking, as well as more adventurous activities such as climbing, quad biking, canyoning and via ferrata. There is a diverse range of landscape within the park and it is an important habitat for many species of flora and fauna.


The principal city in the region, Avignon’s historic centre includes a 12th century Romanesque cathedral Notre Dame des Doms and the 14th century Palais des Papes, an immense Gothic building with formidable walls up to 18 feet thick! There are, of course, also many restaurants and cafés, shops, parks and squares to explore.

Les Baux-de-Provence

This gorgeous medieval village, which features on the 'Most Beautiful Villages in France' list, should definitely also be on your sightseeing to-do list! Set on a rocky plateau, there are superb views on a clear day down to Arles and the Camargue. There is some beautiful architecture to see, but also just a lovely atmosphere of an authentic Provencal village with pleasant terrace cafés and art galleries to browse.


This town in the Rhône Valley is renowned and revered around the world for its quality wines, and you can learn more about winemaking in the area at the Maison Brotte winery and museum.

A stroll and a bite in St Rémy

This popular town is typically Provençal with boulevards lined by plane trees, plenty of cafés and restaurants, and a bustling weekly market. A Roman triumphal arch still stands on the outskirts, and the town itself has a number of historic buildings and chapels.

The Camargue

This unique natural site is worth a day trip. Join a boat trip through the unique Camargue landscape and look out for the resident horses, bulls and birds. Or explore on foot or by bike at the Petit Rhône Reserve.

Carrières de Lumières

This former quarry has been converted into a multimedia centre, where still and moving images are projected onto all the walls and floors, offering a truly immersive experience! There are usually at least two shows to choose from, often exploring and showcasing the work of a visual artist, for example Picasso and Van Gogh in 2018.
