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.

Lucky for us, right under our window to watch and enjoy.. The apartment was very clean and everything we expected it would be based on our communication prior to booking it. Moreover, it was well stocked with everything from coffee to olive oil, paper towels to toilet paper so an immediate trip to the grocery was not necessary. It was located very conveniently to grocery store, the waterfront, fabulous restaurants and many little shops of local artists.. There was no air conditioning, but although the apartment was warm during the day, cross ventilation through the apartment at night provided very comfortable sleeping with the windows open. The greeter was quite pleasant, accommodating and offered very helpful information for getting around town. We would definitely stay here if we return to Marseille. Joe P Rochester NY

Lovely little pool which was a godsend as the weather was very hot. Many a lovely hour sat on the roof terrace with a bottle of wine in an evening . On arrival there was 2 bottles of water and a bottle of wine in the fridge . Martin gave detailed ideas of where to pick groceries up in the village
