A secret escape nestled amongst the Alpilles.
About the village
Less than 1km apart, Maussane and Paradou combine to offer a great selection of amenities and dining options, hidden amongst the beautiful hills of the Alpilles.
Maussane is well known for its olive oil and tapenades. Surrounded by more than 37,000 olive trees it is not surprising that it is known as one of the most important olive oil producing areas in the country. Its two active windmills continue to produce oil of exceptional quality.
Paradou is a delightful village filled with beautifully restored houses and colourful gardens. With its narrow, well-maintained streets, brightly painted shutters, restaurants decorated in Provencal style and tempting boutiques, it is a glorious example of Provence village life at its best!
Maussane Village Square
A bustling gastronomic delight.
The village square in Maussane offers the perfect opportunity to explore the wide variety of styles offered by French restaurants. With a quaint fountain and well maintained open spaces, the heart (and stomach) of Maussane is to be found here.
The local street musicians offer a variety of performances throughout the day, and the local council stage friendly and exciting events on the square throughout the summer. Combined with the wide selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and all budgets, the experience of al-fresco dining in Maussane is one that simply should not be missed.
Enjoy a quiet and casual lunch with friends and family, or make it an evening experience for a more special occasion. There is enough choice to please even the fussiest of eaters, and the vibrant atmosphere promises to ensure a fantastic time is enjoyed by all.
