Area & Experiences
Ten minutes from the centre of Aix-en-Provence, the tiny village of Puyricard is nestled in the heart of nature. You could spend hours biking along the country roads past Romanesque churches, medieval castles and bourgeois mansions. Somewhere along your journey, you'll find yourself face to face with a UFO: Villa Carmélie. A long pathway leads to its tree-lined garden with a chic, girly caravan straight out of the 70s, as if hippies have moved in.
