Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Arles, France your home away from home

The town is of such historical importance, and filled with so many amazing attractions that the entire town has been declared a world Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The medieval feel in Arles in undeniable, although many of the most famous historical sites date back to the Roman Empire. The narrow, twisting streets of the centre of town are awash with delightful cafes and mouth watering smells emanating from Arles’ restaurants, but most impressively, many of the Roman monuments, like the coliseum and theatre are actually located inside the town, blending in perfectly with buildings built many centuries later. The Roman Arena is so well preserved that it is still the host to bull running and bull fighting festivals to this day! Arles was one of the Roman Empire’s richest cities in Gaul, and as a result, the Roman monuments here are lavish and elegant, having stood proudly for many years. The 4th century Roman baths of Constantin and the Alyscamps burial grounds are also well worth investigating from any self catering Arles villa, apartment or holiday home.

Outside of the main centre, Arles tourism is a relaxed and laid back affair, as the town is filled with tree lines avenues, large parks and plenty of benches from which to rest your feet and admire the view. Arles villas are a great base for walking holidays too.

There are also three excellent self guided tours around the town, navigated by using the coloured plaques which adorn the town. You can choose from the medieval tour, van Gogh tour or the Antique Arles tour. Arles also benefits from having 9 riding schools offering tours into the countryside and a range of mountain biking centres, information on which is readily available from the Arles tourism offices.

Art and culture have always been important to the inhabitants of Arles, with Van Gogh and Picasso being listed among the town’s most famous long term visitors. Each summer, photographers flock to self catering Arles villas, attracted by the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie.

We have 2 children (2 years and 6 months) - the villa was fine for them although we did have to be careful by the stairs. This wasn't a problem but just something to be aware of when travelling with young children. The pool was brilliant and the exterior and the location is very beautiful. Inside is also very nice, very spacious and comfortable. The owners were fantastic, responding quickly to queries both in advance and while we were staying at the property. We were so impressed we are hoping to return again.

                                                                                                This apartment is ideally situated just a few minutes' stroll from the centre of Arles old town. It is bright, modern and comfortably furnished and very well equipped. When we stayed for ten days the weather was extremely hot and the air-conditioning was blissful and very easy to control. There is a very pretty patio-style garden which we used very little because it was too hot to sit outside, but there is a shaded covered area for outside dining. There are very efficient electrically- operated steel shutters to all the windows, which means that you can leave your valuables (passport, cash, jewellery etc) safely at the apartment when you go out. There is also secure underground car parking if you need it. We travelled by train and the property manager Yvette kindly met us at the station and drove us to the property, showed us around and explained how everything worked and where to find what we needed. This was a great help at the end of a hot day's travelling. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival and we felt very comfortable straightaway. The nearest restaurant and bar were about two minutes' walk away and many more were within ten to fifteen minutes' slow stroll from the apartment. There is also a bakery and a pharmacy within about a hundred yards. Arles has a great selection of restaurants - our favourite was Café Georges on the Boulevard Clemenceau. The Tourist Office is on the same stretch, about ten minutes from the property, and although constantly busy, they are very helpful and pleasant. They helped us to book places on a half-day minibus trip to visit the Pont du Gard, St Remy and Les Baux. Other excursions available. We also visited the Fondation Van Gogh, and saw no less than 31 original oils that Vincent painted here, in their summer exhibition. We walked around different parts of the old town every day - it is very compact and easy to find your way around, and when the Arena suddenly appears in front of you at the top of a narrow street, it is truly breathtaking. There are far too many events taking place to mention them all - Arles is a great centre for the art and culture of many nations and has a huge modern museum near the Rhone, which you can get to using the free shuttle bus which leaves from opposite the Tourist Office every 30 minutes. We had a truly fabulous holiday and this property and this lovely apartment was an ideal base. I recommend it unreservedly.

The apartment was clean, well stocked and very stylish. We loved the garden and the parking was useful. I was easy to drive into Arle and we didn't have any trouble finding parking there. Arle is a lovely town and worth a visit. We had a lovely stay there, thank you Christiane. Jennie and Paul
