The Alpilles Natural Park, a thousand and one activities for a return to the roots

Ideal to relax in the countryside, the Alpilles Natural Park offers a multitude of activities for two, with family or friends. Many marked trails allow for days of hiking, cycling or horseback riding. You will evolve in the heart of typical landscapes of Provence such as olive groves, vineyards, orchards, garrigues or pine forests. Climbing and abseiling courses also offer an exceptional playground for the most adventurous.

The Alpilles Natural Park is an invaluable habitat for wildlife: it is home to nearly 250 species of birds. The Great Horned Owl, Kestrel Falcon and Egyptian Vulture have taken up residence here. You will have the chance to observe them in all their splendor.

At the heart of the Alpilles are picturesque villages such as Baux-de-Provence, Maussane les Alpilles and Eygalières, which must be visited: the old charm of these places has remained intact, as evidenced by the chapels, the oratories, the mas and the wash-houses of the villages.

You can also discover superb archaeological sites such as the oppidum des Caisses de Jean-Jean, the hypogea of Fontvieille, its acqueduc and the mills of Barbegal. To extend this magical break in the Alpilles Natural Park, book a room at Baumanière, a five-star Relais & Châteaux located in Les Baux-de-Provence, in the Val d’Enfer. An address whose reputation in Provence is well established since 1945.
