Alpilles Natural Regional Park (Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles)

Lying between the Camargue and Luberon in western Provence, the Alpilles is the newest of France’s 49 natural parks and covers an area of marshland, forest, vineyards and olive groves backed by the limestone crags of the Luberon Mountains. Alpilles is also known for its rich flora and fauna, with nearly 1,000 plant varieties, several species of protected bats and more than 90 species of bird including Bonelli’s eagles and rare vultures.

At the heart of the natural park lies the charming village of Saint-Rémy de Provence, made famous by tortured Expressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh in the late 19th century. He stayed at the Monastère St Paul-de-Mausole in 1889 when recovering from mental illness and painted many famous scenes around the village. In 2016 a new visitor center will open in the village that covers the whole of the park (until then the current HQ is at 10-12, avenue Notre Dame du Château, Saint-Etienne-du-Grès).
