In front of the first wooden house, next to the plancha, a small wooden arbour created by Bruno will shelter you from the sun...
Les Cabanes de la Lèque offer two holiday rentals in Fontvieille, in the heart of the Alpilles, in Provence.
Close to the Camargue and the cities of Arles and Avignon, these charming cabins, built and furnished entirely of wood, offer all the modern comforts and are nestled in a preserved and calm nature amid olive trees, rosemary and pines.
We welcome you all year round in an authentic, peaceful and totally preserved setting since the Alpilles massif is a regional natural park created in 2007, in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in the Bouches-du-Rhône department.
In the exceptional setting of the quiet and preserved Parc régional des Alpilles, not far from Avignon, Arles and Saint-Rémy de Provence, let us guide you to discover our seasonal rentals.
First of all, it is Provence that welcomes you. A nature that changes colours with the rhythm of the seasons. All around the wooden terraces of our cottages are the bright yellow of the brooms, the lavender that bears their name well, the orange reds of the poppies, the blue of the irises and the changing greens of the olive trees.
But from Fontvieille, let's walk together along the road that leads to the huts. The forest road is made of dirt but drivers can be reassured, it was redone last year and is accessible to all vehicles.
The road winds through the hill in the shade of a forest of umbrella pines and, sometimes at night, it can happen to see a goose with its small wild boar. But let's stay in broad daylight to enjoy nature, the scent of plants heated by the sun and the light.
When the vegetation is tightening, you will soon see our horses, Colloane and Varsovia on the right. If, during your stay in our cottages, you bring them hard bread or carrots, it is certain that you will not leave them indifferent.
You're almost there. Look to your left, this is our house.
We will probably wait for you in front of the wooden boxes to take you to the cottages: two small huts that are next to each other, turning their backs in the shade of large trees. And which open onto a meadow where our horses regularly graze.
As you go down, take a look on your left at the organic vegetable garden. It will be at your disposal during your stay. Courgettes, tomatoes, peppers, melons, aubergines... many vegetables may already be ready to be eaten. You will come back later to pick them because it is now time to arrive home.
Let's bet that your first meal will be preceded by the tasting of a bottle of Alpilles rosé wine in the cool to welcome you. With your coffee, taste the small shuttles we have placed for this purpose next to the Nespresso coffee maker. It is a local specialty that you will not be able to do without.
Now enter your cabin with its good and reassuring smell of wood. And the light, soft and bright.
You are now at home!
Have a good holiday
Breakfasts and meals on order
Treat yourself and avoid the problem of shopping for a weekend or, in the case of a weekly rental, the first day of your arrival. On order, a breakfast can be brought to you as well as a meal, both entirely organic of course, if you order them.
Breakfast 15€ - Dinner 38€. Wine included
Organic vegetable garden, of course. Tomatoes, zucchini, salads, aubergines, chard, peppers, pumpkins, melons... are at the entire disposal of our guests who are invited to pick them to the rhythm of their desire to cook and their appetite. The herb garden is not stingy in terms of mint, parsley, chives, coriander etc.
Only corn has been removed by Bruno, who for years has been planting, sowing and growing vegetables in season. The wild boars loved it too much! On the other hand, they are indifferent to raspberries.
Leave Arles, take the tangent to Fontvieille, reach the Alpilles, hide there a little, get lighter on your train train. Bruno is from the Camargue, he has two dogs, two cats, two horses and above all two cabins for you. He did everything on his own, like an exalted cabinetmaker, with wood, all the wood: driftwood, formwork, pallets, antler, shelves, headboards, lamp feet. In his vegetable garden, which he cultivates by permaculture, you can come and pick tomatoes and herbs and others. Naturally awesome. Minimum stay of two days (contact Bruno for the itinerary, otherwise you will get lost).
"A privileged place in the heart of the Alpilles. Absolute calm, ideally placed to discover Provence. The Simplicity and beauty of the wood of the tastefully decorated Cabane make it a place where it is pleasant to spend time reading, relaxing... at your own pace. »

melaniehough An enchanting retreat Writes on Aug 3, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016 The cabin itself is impeccably presented - beautiful, unique furnishings and a place in which you felt instantly comfortable. Set in well-maintained, idyllic gardens - with Bruno providing freshly-picked vegetables and flowers for our stay. Excellent BBQ too. Secluded but with assistance always on hand, we spent the holiday exploring the surrounding national park. The two nearest villages are a short drive or enjoyable walk away, with fine dining available locally. Arles is another short drive away, and we'll be going back to explore more of the region, too much for one holiday. We'd also be very content to enjoy days spent in the cabin and its grounds - peaceful and exquisitely designed.
La estancia en este lugar fue maravillosa. It is ideal for all those who love naturaleza, the man who wants to make a rato for the mañana and alejarse of the lugares atestados de turistas. A nosotros que apreciamos alojarnos en sitios pequeños y más familiares en vez de en hoteles grandes nos pareció perfecto. Las habitaciones tienen una entrada propia que da independencia, pero si quieres una buena conversación, tienes al otro lado dos personas estupendas con las que intercambiar impresiones. Me habría quedado a charlar con ellos toda la mañana. Está todo puesto con mucho cariño y detalle. Sólo puedo decir que recomendaría y repetiré si vuelvo a la
Das Haus und unser Aufenthalt in der Nähe von Fontvieille war sehr schön. Alles ist genau so wie beschrieben. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig im Grünen und der Vermieter, Bruno und seine Familie ist sehr net und sehr hilfsbereit. Die Ausstattung ist zweckmäßig aber sehr schön und sehr geschmackvoll Zur Begrüßung hatten wir Wein und Gemüse aus seinem eigenen Garten im Haus liegen. Wer einen ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub zwischen Bergen, Grün und Meer verbringen möchte, ist dort genau richtig aufgehoben. Wir können das Haus und die Gegend nur empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder. Als kleiner Tipp für die Anreise (da das Haus nicht leicht zu finden ist): sobald man in den Feld- bzw. Waldweg abgebogen ist, am besten den gelben Markierungen an den Bäumen folgen. Lieben Dank noch einmal an Bruno und seine Familie für den schönen Aufenthalt.
Autumn stay great autumn we in the middle of the forest. Colours, birds, sun, calm and a fun and comfortable cabin.
INTO THE WILD Bruno and his wife are super friendly, they even brought us some fresh organic vegetables for free. The cabin is lovely and the perfect place to enjoy silence and peace. If you enjoy the outdoors, go there. Hiking, climbing, biking right at your doorstep. Getting to the cabin can be quite a challenge, the doubletrack is quite rough. Drive slow and careful and careful and you'll be fine, we made it with a volvo v50, no problems. There is wifi if you for free. Big shower with a nice sink. The toilet is in a separate room. We had 38*C but the cabin stayed quit cool. Overall a win!
Wonderful. Wonderful. I travel a lot, but I have rarely met guest houses as personal as Bruno's. He calls his houses "cabins", but they are above all warm refuges, where he has done everything himself with exquisite taste (special mention for his cannon floated wooden furniture!), and takes care of you with love. As for the environment, it is simply unique, you will see...
