Offering the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a magical occasion with family or friends, you could even cosy up and stay over for a fun night.

Located to the north of the site, the cabin is set within a gorgeous forest that is part of the Alpilles national park. As well as some lovely nature trails, featuring the unique vegetation of the region, truffles can also be found here.

So, why not spend the day having some woodland adventures before finishing off with a unique dinner among the trees?

 

Your own personal olive grove

As well as vineyards and lavender, Provence is also famous for its olive groves – and, here at Domaine le Mistral, there are 600 trees, the olives are pressed at a small mill nearby to create the estate’s excellent olive oil.

Where Provençal landscapes meet luxury living

Located in the stunning surrounds of the Alpilles national park, Domaine le Mistral offers the chance to reconnect with nature in a luxurious setting.

Found in a 25-acre estate, this 300-year-old Provençal ‘mas’ (traditional farmhouse) has been restored to the highest design standards – and includes an English-speaking concierge to help with every need.

Featuring impressive volumes, the property has seven en-suite bedrooms, an impressive lounge, a library, a large dining room with fireplace, a general kitchen, a staff kitchen, a wine cellar and a tasting room.

Other highlights include the swimming pool, tennis court, gym, spa, open-air cinema and lake – as well as a log cabin for fun stays in the forest.

 

Out and about around this beautiful region

Famed for its fragrant lavender, rolling vineyards and gastronomic markets, Provence captures the finest elements of the French lifestyle.

What is more, the nearby village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is one of the best. Found on the old Roman road from Arles to Rome, it brims with Provençal charm. On the outskirts, there are Roman ruins too.

Elsewhere, in the beautiful surroundings of the Alpilles (little Alps), you can enjoy hiking, cycling and gliding, and the Camargue is nearby. Plus, the beaches of the south coast are an easy drive, as are the cities of Arles, Avignon and Nîmes.

Whatever your interests, private excursions can easily be arranged – and we also have access to a fleet of vintage vehicles for your stay.
