A 5 minute walk to the well-stocked supermarket, shops and restaurants in Graveson.

Les Baux de Provence, a lovemy hilltop village in the Alpilles and famous for its 'son et lumière' show in the old quarries, is just 20 minutes by car.
Graveson has a bank, Boulangeries, several restaurants, a cafe, newsagent and a market. It also has a nearby tennis club and wine caves. Tennis, horseriding, gliding and small plane trips are available over the Alpilles as well as wonderful walks and cycling. It is not far from Chateauneuf du Pape so wine tasting and gourmet eating are essential! There is a Tourist Office in the village to help you. We can arrange for a chef to cook a meal for you, or alternatively, you could go to his cookery school in the village about 300 metres away.
There are several restaurants within a short walk and new to the village is a sushi restaurant as well.
A 10 minute walk takes you to some other restaurants which you have to seek out - the Housekeeper will be able to offer some more local knowledge.
There is also a lovely little Pizza take-away about 2 minutes away who also sell wines, beers and desserts.
It's quite nice to sit and wait while they cook them because the locals obviously use it a lot.

GRAV101 - GUEST COMMENTS"The photos were accurate but they didn't really do justice as it looked smaller on the pictures than it was. There are lots of useful things in the property and it is well stocked.The booking procedure and service was excellent - swift and helpful responses made us feel confident about the booking. It was an added touch to have the visit from somebody local to the property to check all was OK.The pool was fantastic - well cared for and clean. It was hard to encourage the children to go out as they would have been happy to stay there all day! We found it really easy to drive around the area and there is lots to do and see. People in Graveson were very friendly and it was great to be able to walk to the bakery, post office, supermarket etc."Corinne, July 2012"We had a great week in Provence, exploring the area. The apartment was really comfortable, one of the nicest places we have stayed in."Judy Seimers - October 2011"We thought the apartment was delightful. Very spacious, beautifully decorated and clean. The kitchen had ample equipment, plates, glasses, bowls etc which apartments in France often do not have! The swimming pool was fantastic and we were in it most days from 4pm. Clean and quiet.We did trips every morning and saw an awful lot. Graveson is extremely well placed to visit a great many interesting and beautiful places." Laura Simmons."The apartment was spacious, clean and attractive. The fact the residence included secure parking and an enclosed area was also an advantage. The garden and pool areas were well maintained and pleasant." Paul Browes .

" The property description and photo's were entirely accurate. The property is very good, we would recommend it to friends. The location is centrally placed to explore some of the major tourist attractions. An excellent base for our holiday. The building is lovely; the plane trees are a great feature and add to the beauty of the spot. The pool is fabulous. Wifi access is really useful. No disappointments. The property was good value for money and it was very clean on arrival. The booking procedure was very good and we felt confident of the quality of the service throughout the booking and holiday period. Thank you for providing us with a brilliant holiday experience. "
Wonderful stay ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Summer 2017)
My family spent one week in this apartment in the summer of 2017. After a few days in Paris, we headed for Avignon with the TGV (high speed train). A very fast and comfortable trip. We went by car when returning to Paris, which was more expensive and indeed more time consuming.
Our week in Graveson was just what we had hoped for. It was quiet, comfortable and all in all we enjoyed a week with very easy living.
The building, and old silk factory, is beautiful and charming, and the garden is peaceful and more lush that I had expected. The apartment has it all…. It is modern, well equipped and spacious, but at the same time very rustic and genuinely French. It is beautifully decorated, and we felt very much at home from the very first minute. Our daughters (8 and 6 years old) loved to spend time at the pool, which was not at all crowded during our visit. It was nice and clean, and there were plenty of sunbeds, tables and other equipment ensuring a comfortable stay.
There is plenty to see and do in the area, although we would strongly recommend to rent a car. We enjoyed the theatre festival in Avignon (great for both kids and grown-ups), and the ancient towns of Nimes and Arles. Pond du Gard and Camargue are also definitely worth visiting.
We had the most wonderful holiday at Le Prieure. Situated in a pretty oasis of calm and perfectly positioned for exploring all the areas we love in Provence. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The pool is also very quiet and a lovely place to relax after a day exploring.
We visited lots of the markets, Roman sites and hillside towns and St. Remy with its lovely shops and restaurants is only a short drive away. Graveson also has some good restaurants, an excellent take away Pizza shop and a large supermarket.
We would definitely like to return as we had a marvellous, relaxing holiday.
