LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION AND SO MUCH MORE

  • 5 out of 5
Our extended family ( 2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 grandchildren ages 6 and 14) spent a memorable week in St. Remy. The location of Mas du Gecko was 25 minutes from Avignon TGV station, a short walk from a bustling town center, and less than one hour from Arles, Chateuneufdupape, Aix en Provence, Les Baux, Gordes, etc. etc. ( don't miss the lavender museum) We were perfectly located for day trips and wonderfully comfortable staying at home enjoying the pool, the garden, and outdoor dining. The home was fully equipped with the most current technology, (very fast wifi) entertainment ( smart TV) and appliances. All the conveniences of home with the charm of living in France.
The owner was incredibly helpful, accommodating and very trustworthy. We would go back any time we could.

One of our most enjoyable days was renting electric velos and bicycling to Les Baux. LOVELY way to see the surrounding countryside. If you go, don't be afraid to venture to nearby villages for dining. You can easily walk from the house to many restaurants in town, but You may find even better food and charming settings only a short drive away.

My husband, friend and I stayed here for a week and it was perfection. The home is light and airy, the pool, grills and outdoor living space are heavenly and the proximity to town is very convenient.

The home is very well-equipped. All we needed to do was buy groceries and we were set. We walked to town 1-2 times a day. St. Remy is only about a 5 minute walk. Every other day we toured the area which is full of wonderful sights.

The beds are comfortable, the home is clean and fresh, and we could not have been happier. Julien is a hands-on owner and answered every question promptly before we arrived. The three of us would return again, and highly recommend this property!

LOVELY HOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
Three friends and I stayed in this charming house in St. Remy in May 2014. Prior to our arrival, I had so many email exchanges with Julien that I hoped he would still welcome us! He was so helpful and welcoming, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful owner. Julien arranged for a private chef for us one night, was helpful throughout my first experience in wiring the funds for the deposit and rental balance, and helped out with a few questions prior to our arrival. He was on vacation during our week's stay, so arranged for a friend to meet us at the house. Jean-Baptiste gave us some recommendations for restaurants and helped us get set-up for wi-fi. The house was fabulous. I've never seen such wonderful artwork in a place that is rented. We had plenty of room and were thrilled by the proximity to town. On the nights we ate out, we walked into town, which not only provided us with a little exercise, but also allowed me to have a 2nd glass of wine! The market on Wednesday was fabulous, as were our meals in St. Remy. We had planned to use the studio, so each of us had our own room for this leg of our trip, but when we checked it out, there did not appear to be a toilet in that room. There was a locked door, which maybe had the "external" toilet, or maybe it was outside! Not sure - John-Baptiste wasn't as familiar with the property as Julien is. We did laundry before we set off on the rest of our trip, and were surprised at how long the washer and dryer took to do a load of laundry! Plan on about 4 hours for a single load. Anyhow, we wouldn't have changed a minute of our time in Provence, and would certainly love to visit this particular property again.

A GREAT FIND

  • 5 out of 5
WOW- 1st time in this charming villa. Private, quiet, large, comfortable, conveniently located from the perfect picturesque town of St. Remy. Living quarters were more than sufficient, large eat in in kitchen, beautiful baby grand piano, large pool, big back yard, washer/dryer was super convenient.
Villa and gardens were mint clean and well maintained.

Had the pleasure of meeting the owner-Julien. A young professional family man and perfect gentleman.

Of course we explored the surrounding towns and found super delicious bakeries and a huge modern shopping mall about 20 minutes away. The drive there was beautiful-for miles and miles the road was lined with huge trees
that joined across the road.

Sorry to leave and plan to be back. I highly recommend the villa to singles or family.
Thanks-Karl

A BEAUTIFUL, IDYLLIC PLACE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful place to stay. We were happy just lying by the pool. But when we ventured out of the house we found so much of interest! The asylum where Vincent Van Gogh painted most of his masterpieces, the remains of a town dating back to 500 B.C., an ancient walled village on a hilltop that featured both one and two star Michelin restaurants. We will return...

WONDERFUL IN EVERY WAY!

  • 4 out of 5
We fell in love with this villa and had such a wonderful stay here. I would highly recommend this house to any group or family looking for a place to relax in Provence and still be close to town. You couldn't ask for a more perfect location - as others have noted, it's just a quick walk or bike ride into Saint Remy and surrounded by so many wonderful hill towns and other historic sites. (Glanum is a must!)

This house is equipped with everything you could possibly want or need, from local maps to abundant kitchen utensils and supplies to interesting books and DVDs to children's books. Towels are plentiful for both the pool and the shower. The air conditioning in the living room and one bedroom works really well - and we were grateful for it after many hours under the hot sun each day. The bathrooms are very functional with two bathtubs including a shower. (The second bathroom is inside the bedroom without a wall so that is worth noting. It was fine for us but might not appeal to all.)

We loved the pool and the lush, blooming gardens surrounding the house - there are fig and apricot trees in your own backyard! The house is extremely safe with a security system and private gate. We felt comfortable and happy the entire stay and would go back in a heartbeat.

While the house, the gardens, and area were all wonderful, what really made the experience special was the extra attention, care, and professionalism demonstrated by the owner, Julien. We arrived late after a difficult, long drive and he was there to welcome us with a very unexpected and incredible aperitif - a selection of tapanades and crackers, etc. He made himself available to us by text, phone, and email whenever we had questions throughout the week and treated us like friends. He personally travelled to a nearby chateau to make a dinner reservation for us when we could not get through directly, before we even arrived in France. And when I left something at the house upon our departure, he drove two hours to return it to me in St Tropez!

For any first time VRBOers who have reservations about sending wire transfers and security deposits to a perfect stranger, I can assure you that Julien is someone you can trust and count on to make your vacation not just pleasant but wonderful. Thank you for all of your help, Julien!
