You will without doubt be tempted to spend all your time at la Royante, relaxing near the swimming pool or in the park, under the olive trees. Or listening to one of Bach's Cantatas in the Chapel.

  • Horse riding only 10 mins away
  • 5 golf ranges in the vicinity
  • Famous wineyards of the region, such as Chateau de Pibarnon (Bandol) or the Chateau Simone (Palette, Aix)
  • Perfect for a day tour (1h-1h30 away), Avignon and its festival or Isle sur Sorgue and its antique market.

  • Hiking :
