Wonderful in every way!
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!
