Tranquil, calm and private, with stunning views over olive groves towards the Alpilles, this 18th century olive mill in Provence is truly a little piece of paradise. Come and rest your senses.
If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy good company, warm summer evenings and peaceful natural surroundings then La Tauliere will fit the bill perfectly. Once a working olive mill it has been beautifully and sensitively renovated with a perfect blend of the old and the contemporary and it now provides a gorgeous rural retreat in sunny Provence. The rooms are spacious and authentic, the grounds are serene and filled with walking trails, and nearby there are galleries, museums, charming villages and opportunities for hiking, cycling, climbing and horse riding. This is an unforgettable French escape.
La Tauliere feels very secluded but it is just 15 minutes to St Remy and 40 minutes to the coast. Nearby you can go mountain biking and rock climbing in the Alpilles or horse riding in the Camargue, and in Arles you will find a Roman amphitheatre as well as the famous Fondation Van Gogh. Or you could sample some of the mouth-watering local cuisine or experience the sensational Carrieres de Lumieres multimedia shows, where both ground and rocks become a canvas for immersive images.
