The house is beautiful, well decorated, clean, and large with plenty of space for everyone (there were 6 of us). The owner very kindly provided us with a (free) Christmas tree and baubles for my children to decorate- they were delighted. The house does not have central heating but the wall heaters in all the rooms kept us warm and as there is also a fire place (logs provided and included in the price) which was truly cosy and also provided more warmth and created a wonderful atmosphere. The owner Georges, and Patricia, the lady who looks after the house, were both very helpful and very patient (especially as we arrived two hours late). We had a lovely holiday over Christmas and New Year. Saint-Rémy de Provence itself is very beautiful and very near local attractions (do go and see the Roman sites- they are amazing!), so was a good choice. Thank you so much for having made us feel so welcome! :-)

We loved everything about the property. It is extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Valerie and her family were lovely warm welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Hope to come back soon. Highly recomended!!
