Location and surroundings of object

Noves, the small town situated between the Durance and the picturesque chain of hills of the Alpilles, i.e. in the heart of Provence, is an ideal starting point for excursions of all kinds. The magnificent landscape of the nearby Alpilles and Luberon mountain ranges invite you to go hiking, cycling or horseback riding. The six beautiful golf courses in the immediate vicinity offer golfers plenty of variety. Wine connoisseurs will be thrilled by the fine wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the southern Côtes-du-Rhône region, but also from the Alpilles. Lovers of culinary delicacies will not miss out either, given the wide range of excellent restaurants. Those seeking relaxation will appreciate the tranquillity and quality of life in Provence. But most of all, lovers of exploration and discovery of a cultural nature will be spoilt for choice. Come with me on a journey around our little town.
Let's start 10 km to the north in Avignon, the city of the popes. Every child knows the song about the bridge (sur le pont d'Avignon), which, half destroyed, served the population as a dance floor. It still stands today and, along with the imposing papal palace, is one of the most visited monuments in the historic centre, which is surrounded by a completely preserved city wall. Fifteen kilometres north of Avignon we find the famous wine village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (28 km), in whose grape juice the sweetness and spice of the south seems to be captured. Not far from here are the other famous wine towns of the southern Côtes-du-Rhône region: Gigondas(48 km), Vacquéras (38 km), Beaume-de-Venise (38 km), Cairanne (49 km) Another 10 km to the north is Orange (36 km), the former Roman colony with its ancient theatre, whose unique stage wall is still completely preserved. The town is situated at the height of Mont Ventoux (45 km), the highest mountain in Provence with 1909 m. On its eastern flank begins the lavender-growing area, where the landscape presents itself to us from mid-July to mid-August as a blue-flowered and intensely fragrant paradise.
Let's follow the course of the sun on our journey and head south. Here we find Fontaine de Vaucluse (24 km), where an entire river, the Sorgue, rises from a spring pool and several side springs at the foot of a mountain. The strongly flowing, ice-cold and crystal-clear water was used in earlier times to generate energy and operated mills of all kinds. A few kilometres downstream, we find the town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue (19 km), the "Venice of Provence" criss-crossed by numerous canals, where many a mill wheel still bears witness to the former activity. Today, the town is a well-known centre of the antique trade and the huge market on Sunday mornings is extremely well attended. About 10 km east of Fontaine de Vaucluse is the impressive rock town of Gordes (30 km). Right next to it, in a lavender field, the famous Cistercian monastery Sénanque (35 km). Another 10 km to the east we find Roussillon (39 km) with its famous ochre rocks.
Moving further south, we come across the chain of hills of the Luberon, the foothills of the Alps, which invite us to take long walks and stroll in the picturesque villages at its foot: Menerbes (30 km), Lacoste (34 km) and Bonnieux (38 km) on the northern flank, Lauris (44 km) and Lourmarin (49 km) on the southern flank. Continuing westwards, we travel via Cavaillon (18 km), the capital of melon cultivation, and Orgon to Eygalières (15 km), passing the idyllically situated Chapelle St. Sixte, one of the most famous chapels in Provence. Now we are in the Alpilles. The craggy limestone cliffs, covered with olive-green maquis and pine forests, look so fantastically beautiful against the blue sky that a large number of French celebrities have settled here. The remains of their settlement Glanum are worth a visit, along with the triumphal arch and the mausoleum from Roman times. Just a few metres below Glanum is the monastery of St. Paul de Maussole, where Vincent van Gogh spent a year as an inmate. During this time, he created a wealth of landscape paintings of the surrounding area. An educational trail leads you to the corresponding motifs. Again about 10 km to the southwest, nestled in the white-grey limestone cliffs, you will find the legendary, still medieval-looking village of Les Baux (24 km), one of the most famous and most visited sights in France. South of it grow the olives of the Vallée des Baux, from which the world-renowned and highly famous olive oil of the same name is pressed in the oil mills of Mouriès (30 km) and Maussane (23 km). From Maussane, the road leads via Fontvieille (30 km) and the monastery ruins of Montmajour to Arles (37 km), about 20 km away, once the residence of Emperor Constantine. In the still completely preserved Roman arena, cultural events of all kinds are staged. The journey continues north via Beaucaire (26 km) to the Pont du Gard (49 km), the world-famous aqueduct. This magnificent piece of Roman architecture represents a successful combination of solidity and harmonious aesthetics. It has always fascinated the observer.
Our round trip is over. Of course, we have disregarded a multitude of museums, castles and palaces, cathedrals, churches, chapels, large and small sights on or along our way. At none of our stops did we want to go further than 50 km from Noves. And so we did not talk about Vaison-la-Romaine (59 km) , Aix en Provence (72 km), Nîmes (71 km), the Camargue and Les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (78 km), Marseille (88 km) and the coastal towns of the Côte Bleue, the Gorges du Verdon and much more. Nor of the colourful weekly markets, the sun-ripened, tasty and healthy fruit and vegetables, the dreamlike avenues, the (almost) ever-blue sky, the crystal-clear light and the crystalline colours in the best, you discover it all yourself!
You don't know Noves? Yet Petrarch's much-praised Beauty Laura came from this small town of Gallo-Ligurian origin, situated between the Durance and the picturesque Alpilles hills, in the heart of Provence. Despite its central location, the town and its surroundings have so far been spared from mass tourism. The inhabitants of this stretch of land, which is also called the "Garden of Europe" because of its extraordinary fertility, generally live from agriculture. This has an advantage for the holidaymaker that should not be underestimated: here he is not seen as a tourist, but as a visitor. The people are friendly, the prices are reasonable, and you can still discover a lot without getting lost in the crowd. So: if you want to experience Provence in its natural state, come to Noves. Here you will still find the Provençal peasant as described by Marcel Pagnol, the quaint café where the locals might invite you to play petanque, the typical Provençal bloodless bullfights on Sundays¬

Great atmosphere, excellent location, very personal service

Actually a insider tip for people who want to get to know the beauty and culture of Provence/Alpilles. Quiet and somewhat secluded, within walking distance of 1500m to the nearest small village, 10km from St. Remy, ideal environment for cycling, but also very short distances by car to almost all interesting destinations in Provence.
Especially noteworthy is the very personal care by the landlord, we owe him valuable tips for hiking, for art (which you find everywhere in the vacation rental and the entire property) and above all for culinary delights.

recommend for: adventure and experience, cultural and sightseeing holiday, romantic holiday

In the heart of Provence

Cozy, clean, fully furnished holiday apartment with a spotlessly clean pool, good beds and regular changing of linen, insect screens on the windows, large garden for shared use, some parts shaded.

All sights of Provence can be easily reached due to the central location and ideal connection to transportation.
The friendly and helpful hosts, who are from Germany, are committed to making their guests feel comfortable. Even those who do not speak French and are not familiar with the country will feel well looked after.
Noves is a lively small town with a medieval past, about 1.5 km away (20 min. walk).
We (a couple, 75 and 67 years old) were very satisfied with the choice of this holiday apartment.
