Alleins, Provence

Pont Royal Golf and Country Club

Alleins is a quaint little village between the hills of the Luberon and the Alpilles. The remains of the 15th century castle and round tower cling to the rocky outcrop and attractive 16th century houses line the streets.

The Luberon

The Luberon

During the wars of religion much of the village and population were destroyed but new life has since blossomed. Take the main street under the shade of the plane trees till you reach the 17th century belfry and campanile at the 14th century gateway which marks the entrance of the ancient village and winding cobbled lanes.

Market day

Arrive on a Tuesday and wander the stalls of the traditional Provençal market or during the village fete and witness the regional Course Camarguaise in the village arena.
