> Les acanthes & the surrounding region

Saint Rémy de Provence is centrally located in Provence and so offers ready access to the Lubéron, the Camargue, the Côte Bleue and its calanques, and to the Route des Vins (Chateauneuf du Pâpe, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, etc). All these magnificent locations are within a radius of 100 kms. Activities on the spot include swimming (sea and pool), fishing, golf, riding, hiking, mountain-biking, antiques-hunting, quad-biking, motorcycling, wildlife watching, plant-spotting and rock-climbing. On top of all this, the region's cuisine is of excellent quality, and there is plenty to see and do in Saint Rémy de Provence.

 

 


      

           

The gîtes at Les Acanthes, located just as you enter Saint-Rémy-de-Provence from Avignon, look out towards the magnificent mountain range of the Alpilles, classified as a regional park.

Your stay will give you the opportunity to explore this lovely region and discover a wide variety of places of interest and landscapes rich in historic and cultural heritage.

The gîtes are just 900 metres from the centre of the village with its many unspoiled streets and lanes, its boutiques and art galleries featuring works by artists inspired by the beauty of Provence's landscapes and ancient buildings.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence lies at the very heart of Provence!
