Fontvieille is a truly authentic Provençal village with lovely old streets, ancient wells and typical local houses boasting beautiful pergolas…  The village owes its charm to its history, heritage and culture. The Moulin de Daudet and the breathtaking Avenue of century-old pine trees are without doubt the highlights of the village.

Fontvieille manages to perfectly combine modernity and authentic traditions providing a simply exceptional quality of life to locals and visitors alike.  The village is located just over the hill from the castle ruin at Les Baux.  The Valley is home to the stunning Alpilles with its 30,000 hectares of pine forests and Provençal garrigue.

Shops, doctor and bank are only a quick stroll away from the property (100m / 328ft), the nearest supermarket is only 300m (984ft) away.  The village hosts a beautiful Provençal market twice a week.
