At the mere mention of the word “Provence“, it is the song of the cicadas that we hear. A summer melody mixed with the scent of lavender, the rays of the sun and the effervescence of the markets that animate its pretty towns and villages. From St Tropez to Nîmes, from Gordes to Grasse through Grignan, its territory is wide, envied by all for the diversity of its landscapes. For their beauty too. We rejoice in the sounds of the Mediterranean sea and we take pleasure in living under the shade of the olive trees.
This authentic lifestyle can be found at every street corner. It is in Provence that we take the time to live. The illustrious Yvan Audouard confirms this with humor. For him, “… the sun rises twice, in the morning and after the siesta. “. This man of letters is not the only one to have been charmed by these breathtaking landscapes. In Provence, the light is different. Van Gogh, Cézanne, Matisse, Renoir, Latour, Picasso, but also Cocteau or more recently Virginie Viard, artistic director of Chanel, can only affirm it.
Crossed by the ages, the Provençal heritage is abundant. The architecture is varied and incredible jewels are hidden behind the stone walls. Typical farmhouses, bourgeois town houses, private mansions… Pay attention to them when you wander through the streets of St Rémy de Provence, Villeneuve-les-Avignon or even Uzès.
“The sky is always clear as long as it lasts, and we have nights more beautiful than your days”Jean Racine
Uzès … let’s talk about it for a moment … Bordered by vineyards, olive trees and garrigue, the first duchy of France stands in all its beauty. The city overlooks la Vallée de l’Eure where the spring of the same name gushes. As the famous poet Jean Racine had pleasantly noted, life is sweet in Uzès. This small city is a perfect match for the DNA of STYLES: stonework, an opulent heritage… Exceptional properties are hidden in the historic center and its surroundings. An evidence …
For many years, STYLES has positioned itself as a reference agency on the Uzétien market. Bespoke and attached to the requirements of its customers, it proposes a real estate of prestige, in all confidentiality, as only a family group can present it.
STYLES has Provence in its heart and it is for all the reasons stated in these few lines that the agency has chosen to develop and extend its field of action.
It is impossible to remain indifferent to the beauty of the Alpilles and what it has to offer. Bastides lined with century-old plane trees, panoramic views of the steep rocks, majestic wine estates, stone and olive groves. More than ever the Provencal lifestyle loved by STYLES. So don’t be surprised to find our sales agents crisscrossing the roads of Saint Rémy de Provence, Eygalières or Maussane-les-Alpilles.
And as our company continues its development in cities and regions that we love – in relation to the demands of our buyers – STYLES now opens its doors to the Luberon, its typical villages with ochre facades, and Avignon, a link with the Alpilles. The papal town, classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, a city of history with a rich heritage, hides many architectural gems within its walls. European capital of culture, Avignon’s reputation has spread far beyond the French borders.
