Discovering the Alpilles Natural Park
Come and take a breath of fresh air in Provence in the Alpilles massif, for a weekend or a long stay. In the heart of an exceptional natural environment, the park welcomes you around the charming town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
The Alpilles nature park, a thousand and one activities for a return to your roots
Ideal for recharging your batteries in the middle of nature, the Alpilles nature park offers a multitude of activities for two, with family or friends. Numerous signposted paths allow you to spend a day walking, cycling or horse riding. You will walk through typical Provence landscapes such as olive groves, vineyards, orchards, garrigues or pine forests. Climbing and abseiling routes also offer an exceptional playground for the more adventurous.
The Alpilles nature park is an invaluable habitat for wildlife: it is home to nearly 250 species of birds. The eagle-owl, the kestrel and the Egyptian vulture have made their home here. You will have the chance to observe them in all their splendour.
In the heart of the Alpilles mountain range are picturesque villages such as Les Baux-de-Provence, Maussane les Alpilles and Eygalières, which are not to be missed: the charm of yesteryear has remained intact, as evidenced by the chapels, oratories, farmhouses and washhouses in the villages.
You can also discover superb archaeological sites such as the oppidum of the Caisses de Jean-Jean, the hypogea of Fontvieille, its acqueduct and the mills of Barbegal. To prolong this magical interlude 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.
