We explored this beautiful area of France - visited Arles and the flamingos of the Camargue. As well as l'isle sur la sourge market and Avignon. All within an easy 1hrs drive. Accommodation itself if brilliant, perfectly clean and modern. Comfy bed, fully equipped kitchen and lovely shower. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay in this area.

Mireille et Gérard were the most hospitable hosts that you could wish for. On our first day they invited us to dinner and we were also invited to a family party. If we had any problems they soon sorted this for us, but they were not intrusive. The studio has recently been completely refurbished, the kitchen area is well kitted out including now a kettle for us Brits and a dishwasher. There is French TV and the internet which does drop out occasionally. The shower room is very nicely appointed. The only difficulty for us was the loft bedroom which has restricted headroom. If you are tall and a bit overweight like me you might struggle. Having said that once up there the double bed was very comfortable. The outside space and pool is very pleasant. Gemenos is a typical Provencal village and is within easy walking distance of the studio, well situated with lots to do close at hand. Cassis, La Ciotat, Bandol, Sanary, St Cyr all on the coast are within 30 minutes drive. In the other direction Aix and the Luberon are within one hours drive. Marseille itself is very impressive. Thank you once again Mireille et Gérard. We hope to see you again next year.

The house is lovely and much thought has gone into everything to make for a trouble free and pleasant stay. The beds are all SO comfortable! From the welcome by Laetitia who was waiting fro us to the time we left it was just a perfect place to be.....close enough to walk into the charming centre of St Remy but a very quiet, safe location for good rest at night! We had no transport of our own but used a local taxi company suggested by Julien or the local buses to visit a few places further afield.....Avignon, Les Baux ( a visit to the amazing Cathedrale des Images set in the old Bauxite mines is a must) and Tarascon with its amazing castle and legend of the mythical beast Tarasc who was said to creep out of the Camargue and wreak havoc in days gone by!! St Remy abounds in restaurants and cafes ( and the delicious icecream needs a mention) from which to watch the world go by over a pastis or kir and coffee and there are many narrow pedestrian streets where wandering and watching was a joy. The local market on Wednesdays is superb with a happy atmosphere. Thank you to Julien for providing yet another bottle of 'bubbly' on Anne's birthday, such a lovely touch. We all voted it a marvellous holiday.
