Why Patrick Oppeel chose Alpilles

Physiotherapist osteopaths and dietician nurse

We love sports, large spaces and quietness.

Epicurean souls, originally from Belgium and Lorraine, we settled here at the beginning of the 21st century. We have never been disenchanted since.

The sun, a great light and a southern accent soothe us every single day. Thus we decided quite naturally to share this delight and to invite people to come in this privileged place to recharge their batteries.

What makes this cottage unique

The biggest asset of our property, le Chemin du Sud, is its location. It is located 300 m from the charming centre of the village of Mausane, south of the Massif of the Alpilles.

The garden is a quiet and green setting with a swimming pool heated from Easter till mid-October. Despite being very close to the centre, you will enjoy the quietness of the place.

In this accommodation, you will find all mod cons including a pleasant and well fitted kitchen as well as a large living room. In the bedroom, a futon mattress will enchant your nights!

The tourist appeal of the area has been much demonstrated with the Baux and the village of Saint-Remy-de-Provence nearby. You can also easily go to Arles, Nimes, Avignon, Aix, Marseille, Montpellier and visit the Camargue.

In one word, do not hesitate!

Outstanding property for two in lovely village.

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding holiday property with everything you need for comfort and convenience. The pool and aircon were much appreciated during our stay when the weather was hot. The owners John and Isabelle were particularly welcoming and most helpful. The village and surrounding area is very attractive and there is much of interest to see and do. I wholeheartedly recommend this gite.

We really enjoyed our stay at Le Chemin du Sud. The house was beyond expectations and the hospitality of John and Isabelle was heartwarming. After an active day it is nice to swim in the heated pool, even when the weather is not very warm. We are looking forward to come back next year.

perfectly placed gite

  • 5 of 5

After touring several areas in the north and south of France, we believe we have found our ideal location in the ville Maussane les Alpilles .

The Gite 'Le Chemin Le Sud' is perfect, its tranquil position is ideal and yet only 300 metres away from several restaurants, bakeries supermarkets etc.

The Gite is spacious with everything you require, also the welcome addition of air conditioning. A lovely private patio area for our French cuisine, barbecue and wine.

The pool is so inviting and is well looked after by the owner John.

Maussane is the ideal base to visit all the historic and beautiful surrounding areas, which are so close.

so many yet to discover.

Very friendly owners, yet discreet and always ready to give good advice .

Can't wait to return .

Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Le Chemin du Sud is an absolute gem of a gite. It is situated in a quiet part of town yet is only 3 minutes walk from the town square and all the restaurants and bars - a great place to watch the world go by. The gite has everything you could wish for and is both comfortable and functional. It has been furnished and decorated with great taste. The open plan kitchen living area is light and airy with doors onto a private patio with barbeque (fuel provided). This is a lovely sunny spot to relax with a glass of wine - there is even a bottle in the fridge when you arrive, such a lovely touch. The bedroom is large, with a king sized bed and masses of wardrobe space. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and washing machine. The pool in the garden is an added bit of luxury - loungers also provided. The owners have thought of everything and are delightful hosts - discrete yet always there with local information. Maussane is a small, but lively Provencal town with plenty of restaurants, shops, galleries etc. It is a great place to just enjoy French life or to use as a base to explore further afield - St Remy Les Baux de Provence and Arles are minutes away by car, Avignon Luberon and the coast a little further. Walks in the Alpilles (oh, the wonderful views!) are numerous and accessible from the town. As a single traveller it can be difficult to find a small enough gite (so many provide for families) but Le Chemin du Sud is just perfect and a real find, with plenty of room for couples, too. It really is a 'little bit of paradise in Provence'. I am already planning my next visit!

Excellente adresse à recommander

  • 5 of 5

Habitués de Maussane les Alpilles depuis plusieurs années, nous avons découvert le Chemin du Sud en juin 2009 ...aucune comparaison possible avec nos locations précédentes. Excellent accueil des sympathiques propriétaires. Le gîte, très propre, est bien agencé : living spacieux avec divan lit et possibilité de connexion internet, coin cuisine bien équipé (dont un lave-vaisselle), salle de bain lumineuse avec douche à l'italienne et lave-linge, chambre à coucher avec un lit très confortable (literie changée chaque semaine). A l'extérieur, une agréable petite terrasse ombragée (avec table, chaises et barbecue) et une piscine (avec plage et transats) partagée avec les propriétaires. Le cadre et l'environnement immédiat de ce gîte est propice au repos. Pourtant la place du village (avec ses terrasses), les commerces, restaurants, boulangeries, banque se trouvent à seulement 200 mètres du gîte. [petit coup de coeur: Pizza BRUN, recommandée par Jean Réno, est une pizzéria exceptionnelle avec des patrons très sympatiques] La situation géographique de Maussane permet de visiter de nombreuses endroits merveilleux sans faire de longs déplacements. Tout est conçu pour avoir envie de retourner dans ce gîte. Si nous avions une appréciation à donner sous forme d'étoile, nous serions unanimes à donner : Merci encore aux très sympathiques propriétaires !

Un vrai paradis

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte et le jardin sont parfaits pour passer un très agréable séjour. La maison est décorée avec beaucoup de goût, bien entretenu et très propre. Aussi le jardin est très bien entretenu et joliment aménagé. L'endroit est calme et pourtant à deux pas du centre avec des restaurants et des commerces.

Il y a beaucoup à decouvrir dans la région; site historique ainsi qu'un paysage merveilleux. Après une journée bien remplie nous avons aimé une baignade dans la piscine chauffé puis à savourer un verre du Rosé sur la terrasse ombragée.

Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques, discrets et toujours prêt pour donner des bons conseils. Merci beaucoup, John et Isabelle, pour l'accueil chaleureux, votre gentillesse et les bons conseils.

En réalité la maison et le jardin sont beaucoup plus belle que les images peuvent montrer. Malheureusement il n'y a que 5 étoiles à donner. Le Chemin du Sud et ses propriétaires méritent 7 étoiles! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
