The Best Places to Buy Property in Provence

The Best Places to Buy Property in Provence 1

Provence is one of the most sought after locations in the world to own property. Here are three luxury properties for sale in property hotspots in Provence from Home Hunts’ online portfolio.

A wonderful world in the Alpilles

The area known as the Alpilles is so named because of the small mountains that stretch from Orgon to St Etienne du Grès. Those who spend time here can enjoy glorious natural landscapes, breath-taking panoramas and all the various elements that make up the perfect Provençal lifestyle – from the scent of purple lavender fields to the exquisite taste of locally-crafted olive oil.

The Alpilles are becoming more and more popular with overseas buyers and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is one of the most coveted locations to live. It is a beautiful area with a magical ambiance, so much so that it inspired Van Gogh to paint Starry Night in 1889.

Investment perfection in St Remy de Provence


It is hard to top this luxurious, well located and exceptionally designed eight-bedroom property (HH-9735116). Without a doubt one of the best homes in the region, it offers a breath-taking panoramic view of the Alpilles and excellence throughout. High spec with spacious, modern interiors, highlights include a large swimming pool, tennis court, home cinema and pool house. This property is a must-see and is priced at €6,450,000.

Luxury living in Lourmarin

Officially one of the most beautiful villages in France, Lourmarin is located in the coveted South Luberon area, a property hotspot in Provence. “The South Luberon is easily accessible to highways and the airport near Marseille, as well as the TGV in Aix-en-Provence,” says Delana Nelson, Home Hunts’ consultant for Provence. “Its huge advantage is that one can be nestled way in its bucolic beauty and still be close to cosmopolitan centres.”

Impressive 12th century cloister for sale


Traditional stone houses are among most sought after property styles in the Provence countryside and this magnificent ten-bedroom property (HH-9251519) is one of the hottest properties in the region. A former cloister from the 12th century, it has been restored over time to a high standard with classic, stylish interiors. Outside the property offers an idyllic space that is made up from parkland, an olive grove and more than seven acres of vineyards. Stunningly beautiful and immaculately kept, the price is available on application.

Make yourself at home in the Var

One of the most luscious and tranquil places in France, the Var countryside is a dream location and a property hotspot in Provence. Located inland around 20km north of Fréjus, Bagnols-en-Forêt is a quiet, pretty village that oozes Provençal charm in the foothills of the Esterel mountain range.

“House prices inland are now 20% less than in 2008, so more people are buying in the smaller villages away from the fast-paced life of the coastline,” says Tim Swannie, Director of Home Hunts.

Renovated glass factory provides infinite charm


This beautiful property with its incredibly large infinity pool is just down the road from Bagnols-en-Forêt and ticks all the boxes of a dream property in Provence (HH-9921780). Once a 17th century glass factory it has been expertly renovated, as have the outbuildings, which include a guest apartment. Not only is this property set on ten hectares of grounds, but it also includes a three-hectare vineyard of cabernet, syrah and grenache grapes, and an olive grove with nearly 300 trees. It is on the market for €1,380,000.
