About Herbe Douce
Villa Herbe Douce is a quintessential Provencal home in a sleepy hamlet near Mouriès in the heart of the Alpilles. Like a garden of Eden, ivy-swathed stone walls, deep green pines and the opalescent surface of the private pool are a welcome contrast to the surrounding rocky outcrops and sun-bleached hiking trails that beg to be explored.
Outside, neighbouring olive trees and vineyards accompany fragrant lavender and pine, a fitting Provencal perfume. Whether you’re drawn to the heat of the poolside sun loungers or prefer a shady coffee spot in the internal courtyard, hot days and hazy nights are easily enjoyed in the flat, family-friendly gardens.
Interiors are jam-packed with character. Stoic beams make way for authentic alcove ceilings, stone fireplaces, and whitewashed walls, all delightfully warmed by the terracotta floor tiles that stretch from cosy dining room to relaxed TV corner. Upstairs is a peaceful affair – think four-poster beds, soft Egyptian cotton, charming twin rooms blessed with breezy Juliette balconies, and sleek neutral bathrooms for evening soaks.
If you can tear yourself away from the property for an afternoon, take a stroll through Mouriès' flowered streets on the hunt for a bakery or that night’s dinner spot – QUALIA is a great option for more sophisticated palates and wine connoisseurs looking for candlelit stonework and top-notch service.
