Holiday Villages Pont Royal

Set in the heart of Provence, between Aix-en-Provence (20 miles) and Avignon (30 miles), Pont-Royal en Provence is a pedestrian only village designed to respect the environment in the heart of 180 hectares of natural habitat.

There is plenty for all the family to do whilst here.  The Pont Royal village is attached to the town of Mallemort where you can wander the cobbled streets and take in the Château de Pont-Royal which has now become a wine growing estate.  You can also visit the Château de la Barben just 15 km from the holiday village and an official historical monument or perhaps the Château de Lourmarin which 26 km away.

Getting here - fly, drive or take the train:

The closest airport is Marseilles which is approximately a 30 minute drive.  Avignon also has some regional and European flights and is also about a 30 minute drive away.

Avignon has a TGV high speed train - 2 hours to Paris and a regular station

But driving out is an ideal option - good for the budget and ideal as no packing…

Holiday Villages Pont Royal

Summer Holidays in Pont Royal

Created in the 1980's with the help of a Californian architect, Pont Royal combines the best of a traditional village in France with a country club, but has the feel of something older. Now well developed, the old village has been completed and newer properties are being established on a nearby site with their own facilities. A hotel in the old village is popular and many private villas and apartments are available to rent.

Activities in Pont Royal

There is plenty for the whole family to do here with an outdoor pool, multi sports court as well as numerous activities on and off park. 

The holiday village has its own water park which includes a wave pool, water games for the children, a Fantasy Racer double slide, an attractive swimming pool in a landscaped environment, an adult pool, paddling pool and a private beach area. 

The 18 hole, par 72 golf course designed by Severiano Ballesteros is a key feature of the complex and includes very open fairways, dog legs, gentle hills and water obstacles set against a magnificent backdrop.  

  • Carte Verte (Green Card) required
  • Equipment hire, training courses to suit all levels with preparation for certification exams (throughout the season). 
  • Reserve course when you book your accommodation. Charge applies.

The golf course is regarded as one of the top 10 in France and has bar and restaurant facilities overlooking the hills of Provence.

You can rent boats, cycles and golf buggies or walk or jog around the many tracks which have great views across the Alpilles hills and Luberon mountains. 

Boules are played in the old village square overlooking the boating lake.

Accommodation and Eating Out in Pont Royal

There are many villas and apartments available to rent by the day or week.

Within the pedestrian village there are several establishments, although some are seasonal. La Farigoule is a local 'pub' for drinks, snacks or family meals. Les Tilleuls is slightly smarter, whilst the golf club has a bar serving food all day inside or on the terrace overlooking the golf course and a restaurant serving good food at lunch or dinner.

A good french restaurant within walking distance on the estate is in Le Moulin de Vernegues hotel. There are a great variety of restaurants in the nearby towns and villages from fairly basic to Michelin starred in Lourmarin.
