> Saint Rémy de Provence
Saint Remy de Provence is the gateway to the Alpilles and the Mas des Tourterelles is a short walk from the centre of town.
The town evokes the very essence of Provence with boulevards shaded by plane trees, fountains splashing in the many hidden squares inside the old town and the Wednesday market which spreads from the Place de la Republique down the myriad of narrow streets.
Watch the world go by over a coffee or pastis from a pavement café, or savour Provençal cuisine at one of the many delightful restaurants.
