About Nissim Marshall
I'm a painter. I love this place for the peace...a famous fashion designer has booked twelve years running, for the same reason. No hassle, yet no feeling of isolation. Millions of things to do and to see, when you want to. A unique place in a unique setting.
Nissim Marshall purchased this House in 1966
Why Nissim Marshall chose Les Baux-de-Provence
Baubesse has thick walls built of bleached local stone, which keep it wonderfully cool. The kitchen has all modern conveniences, including an extra-large refrigerator/freezer, a dishwasher and washing machine, ovens and all essential gadgets, plus a Nespresso machine with a variety of coffee capsules. There are three bedrooms with double beds and their own bathrooms and a small children's room with bunk beds. The living room/dining room is spacious and L-shaped with a large stone fireplace, television and dvd/cd player. There is a piano and lots of books to read. Linen and crockery are supplied, as well as six hours a week cleaning services. Outside is a small courtyard patio where you can eat under a mulberry tree, its branches spreading like a parasol to provide some shade, plus many terraces with awnings, for dining or just looking out at the view. If you arrive at the right time, you might be lucky enough to have your own delicious figs in season. It is truly a paradise for bikers, hikers and runners, as well as those who prefer a lazier lifestyle. The amazing level of privacy you will enjoy in Baubesse can be felt by the absence of any sounds other than those of nature.
What makes this House unique
When people come here, they are struck by the silence and the views, and wherever they've come from, they always say they could never have imagined such a setting. You will have no neighbours here, and you can walk as far as you wish and know it's still your property. There's a short hike in the hills to an ancient abandoned quarry where you'll be delighted to discover French political graffiti from the early 20th century (and some modern, but good-looking) additions.

Peace and plenty
Рай в Провансе? Почему бы и нет. Место исключительно уединенное и живописное. За спиной горные уступы заповедника les Alpilles, а прямо перед глазами виноградники и оливковые рощи Прованса до самого горизонта. В ясную погоду можно даже разглядеть побережье. До Les Baux de Provence можно при желании дойти пешком, до ближайшей деревни Maussane 3-4 километра, с машиной это считанные минуты пути.
Дом солидный, основательный, просторный и, будь у меня больше опыта наверное, можно было бы сказать, что это типичный mas provencale.
Впрочем, интерьеры таких домов я видел только на картинках, поэтому то, что мы увидели, иначе чем дом-музей XVIII-XIX века и не назовешь. Колоссальных размеров библиотека, огромный камин во всю стену, фортепьяно, картины, подсвечники и вместе с этим вся необходимая современная техника - холодильник с льдогенератором, посудомоечная, стиральная, кофе-машина. На участке вместительный чистый бассейн с подогревом и подсветкой.
Хозяин Ниссим - гостеприимный и доброжелательный, дал много полезных советов и даже сварил борщ!
Property with Soul
This property has soul, and Nissim is the perfect guardian. We have just left and our children (ages 6 and 11) are already asking when we will return. We all immediately felt right at home. Nissim went above and beyond to make sure that we were well taken care of, but also left with enough space and privacy to discover our own Provence. For our first night, he made us a dinner reservation at a wonderful small restaurant in town (Fleur de Thym) and took my husband into town for a quick overview of his favorite shops and restaurants. And on the last day, he came by the house with fresh croissants, a baguette for the road, and a New York Times. That was such a thoughtful gesture, and so welcomed. The kitchen and linen closets were fully stocked and there was not one thing that we wanted that the house didn't have. In fact, there were many family friendly surprises that the home came with that we didn't expect, including a ping pong table, pool toys, boules, and a piano. The beds were all very comfortable, especially those pillows! Note that while you can walk to town (a hearty walk) you will need a car to access anything beyond that. Also, while the weather in the summer is generally hot and dry, the Mistral wind can kick in and really cool things off. We were happy to make a fire and settle in with books. Highlights of our time here included:
- Castle at Les Baux
- Les Carrieres de Lumieres
- Evenings on the square in Maussane
- Hike in Les Alpilles
- Boat ride to Les Calanques in Cassis
- La Course Camarguaise in Arles
- Pool time and the VIEWS from the house!
The only thing that we regret is that we only stayed one week. We look forward to returning. Thank you, thank you Nissim!
August in the Alpilles
We booked the beautiful villa Baubesse near les Baux de Provence for a week's relaxing getaway and the pictures didn't do it justice. The setting is stunning, nestled in the foothills of the Alpilles with a view stretching to the Camargue. The owner Nissim couldn't have been more hospitable! So we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Every day we would walk in the Alpilles on tracks from the villa and relax by the pool in the afternoons. Nearby St Remy is worth a visit and can be reached on foot or by bus. There are lots of good restaurants nearby too but eating while enjoying the view was too good to pass up. All in all it was the highlight of our holiday and one of the nicest villas we have stayed in for some time. We would happily return.
The house is in a stunning location.
Nissim, the owner is a gracious, friendly, and most helpful host.
Our five children loved the pool and the space to roam.
It is a perfect location for exploring Provence.
We wish that we had more time to stay.
It is a very special place.
