A Walk in the Heart of the Alpilles

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence to Eygalières via Les Baux-de-Provence and Maussane, the Alpilles region offers a magnificent panorama over Provence.

Dominated by limestone cliffs, the Alpilles is a little corner of paradise. Between wild landscapes, vineyards and nature reserves, the region takes you to a magical place where life is so good. Near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, chocolate addicts will love visiting Joël Durand’s shop. Located in the south for over ten years, the master chocolatier is known for his flavored chocolates each taking the name of a letter of the alphabet: A chocolate, B star anise, C caramel with salted butter, D earl grey... The flavors used are directly inspired by Provence and make for a guaranteed moment of indulgence.

After this short break, head to the Château de Romanin. Unspoiled and located away from the bustling city, halfway between Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Eygalières, it extends over 250 hectares, including 58 hectares of vines cultivated according to biodynamic principles that produce wines of outstanding quality. A bit further on, the village of Les Baux-de-Provence will charm you with its exceptional historical heritage dating back to medieval times: Santons Museum, Alpilles Natural Park, ruins, the citadel... Let yourself be transported by the wide variety of landscapes and tourist monuments that won’t fail to charm. Finally, make sure to stop in Maussane, located in the midst of vast olive groves.
