About the resort
In the Provence, one of the most beautiful areas of France, lies the luxurious resort "Vallée de la St. Baume". The park is situated on a slope at the foot of St. Baume, surrounded by vineyards and pine trees.
Vallée de la St. Baume is the perfect starting point for visiting many tourist villages such as Cassis and Bandol. Aix en Provence and Marseille are at a distance of 50 km. Moreover, the Mediterranean Sea can be reached within half an hour by car.
Along the coast you will find fjords, small bays and beaches. An ideal place for a fantastic holiday.
The centre of the picturesque, typical Provencal village of Nans-les-Pins is located at about 2.5 km away. The village features several boulangeries, where you can enjoy delicious fresh bread at any time of the day. There are several butchers, greengrocers and a small supermarket. There is also an ATM. The traditional village has cosy streets with bars and terraces.
The atmosphere is complete with a 17th century chapel, castle ruins and remains of the former fortified town. The climb of the St. Baume is also a special experience: at the top you have a beautiful view over the Mediterranean Sea, but just below the summit is the famous chapel carved into the mountain. The legend is that Mary Magdalene would have withdrawn here in this cave more than 2,000 years ago.
Provencal markets of Nans les Pins
Every Sunday morning, you can enjoy a typical Provençal market where everything is for sale: fruit, vegetables, herbs, cheeses, olives, sausage, meat, honey, flowers, soaps, clothing and lavender water.
The small markets of Nans-les-Pins, St. Zacharie and St. Maximin de La Sainte Baume give a good impression of Provencal life. In the larger towns, there is also a “marché au brocante” (flea market).
Villa park Vallée de la St. Baume
Just outside the village, the holiday park Vallée de la St. Baume is located, a beautiful resort with an exclusive look. The 34 luxury Provencal villas have spacious terraces and landscaped gardens. Most of the villas have a private pool. Of course there is free Wi-Fi everywhere.
The communal facilities are located at the entrance. Next to the reception with Englisch-speaking staff, there is also a bread service. The same building also houses a bar, an ice cream parlour and relaxation area.
The Villa Park has a swimming pool and children's pool with surrounding terraces with loungers and umbrellas and play equipment for small children. Because most villas have their own swimming pool, there is always plenty of space in and around the communal swimming pool. For older children and adults, there is a table tennis table, a bocce court and atennis court. On this court you can play for free, tennis rackets can be rented from the bar.
The entire park is secured all around and has a gate. Privacy and security are thus guaranteed.
Near the park is a beautiful golf course: 'Golf de la Sainte Baume'. In the vicinity you will find several golf courses.
