If we ever return to Provence we will most certainly be in contact with you, and in the meantime will recommend Mas Aurelia to any friends planning a visit to Saint Remy

The accommodation is extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated & cosy with a super comfortable bed. We were made very welcome by Antoine & Beatrice & our dog Rebel had a great time making friends with Pablo the dog as they played in the beautiful wooded & fully fenced garden. The breakfast each morning was delicious too! Sadly, the weather was too cold & wet to use the pool or enjoy alfresco dining but we were just unlucky with an unusually cold/wet spell. It didn't stop us enjoying our stay though, finding some lovely walks & exploring the surrounding countryside. We will return!
