Equidistant from Arles and Avignon, Les Rochers is ideally situated only minutes from Saint Rémy de Provence and in walking distance of one of France's most beautiful villages, Les Baux de Provence. Overlooking the dramatic Alpilles plateau, the craggy outcrop of the village of Les Baux is one of France's most visited villages and not without reason.
An impressive medieval castle dominates the village while the cobblestoned streets are full of delicious restaurants, some with views extending all the way to the Mediterranean sea. Built into the rocks, which feature prominently within the interiors to dramatic effect, also helping to keep the property cool there are a choice of two terraces from which to appreciate the sprawling and expansive views below. Lazy days can be spent around the kidney shaped pool, strolling back to the village for a hearty Provencal lunch, retreating to the terraces and fire-pit in the evening to admire this most serene and starlit of settings. Part of the house is built into the rocks and dates back to the Roman times. Authentic features such as stone walling and exposed beams have been preserved, while high quality interiors and contemporary art add a modern feel to the property.
