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!

A clean and comfortable gite in a perfect location with lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

John and Isabelle were very helpful and friendly. The cottage is modern, private, spotlessly clean and the pool and gardens were very welcome after our mornings sightseeing. Maussane Les Alpilles was a lovely unspoilt village with a good selection of restaurants just a pleasant stroll away. A perfect base!

Fabulous two weeks.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay in this gite! Had a lovely welcome from John and Isabel, it was very clean and had everything we needed. Very well located to visit all the places we wanted to see, and had lots of information leaflets left in the property. Plenty of choice for restaurants just a short walk away, would recommend it highly. we even had some wine in the fridge on our arrival. Thank you John and Isabel.

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.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

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!
