Lying at the foot of the famous Alpilles mountain range, Saint-Étienne-du-Grès is the ideal starting point for a discovery tour around a region that is the envy of the entire world.

The Alpilles from a different angle !

Saint-Étienne-du-Grès The secret entrance to the Alpilles

Never before has a village so well born its name as the « Gateway to the Alpilles”.

In the mood for nature? Let yourself be led along paths that smell of thyme, rosemary or pine; towards the Notre-Dame du Château Chapel, which extends its benevolent protection to the east of the village, or towards the west, in direction of the Cabane du Garde (“Guardian’s Cabin”) and its botanical path. The ideal place for a picnic in the middle of preserved nature surrounded by a large variety of routes  that cross the Alpilles towards to Les-Baux-de-Provence or Saint-Rémy-de-Provence...

Magnificent scenery whatever the season.

The central square with its beautiful, softly sussurating fountain and its terraces will warmly welcome you for a refreshing drink or a quality meal.

Looking for fresh, local produce ? Among other producers, internationally renowned wine estates use the richness of the land to good advantage.

As for the fruit and vegetable market, it promotes short circuit retails by bringing together the best produce from the Great South for both professionals and private individuals.

Marvel at the "street art” evoking  murals of the A-part Festival, where renowned contemporary artists have combined artistic performances and industrial heritage on the walls of the Alpilles Céréales silo.

A unique and free open-air museum !

Saint-Étienne du Grès is proud of its traditions, culminating in August with the “Fête de Saint Éloi” (“Saint Éloi Festival”) and the carreto ramado race (flower cart race). Not to forget the Moulin de la Croix, an old "blood mill" which still uses horse power to drive the huge millstone during the olive harvest. The harvesting season comes to an end in November with a convivial meal called Moulinade !

Come and discover Saint-Étienne du Grès’s mysterious Roman Mourgue statue and the remains of Via Domitia or the Roman aqueduct. You might also enjoy the sight of Provençal manor houses (“bastides”) or traditional, mostly stone-built Provençal farmhouses (“mas”).
