Fantastic house in a great location with the major plus of its own garage

5 of 5
Bernard and Jo have created a haven in Arles with everything to make your stay enjoyable. Lots of extras, delicious marmalade & palmiers, a comfortable bed and a great terrace. The house is very close to restaurants, bars and tourist sights, but in a very quiet area. It has a good size garage which is a massive bonus if you have a hire car as parking can be difficult. Bernard also does an excellent job of showing you around Arles and pointing out the interesting spots. Thanks Bernard and Jo, we look forward to returning.

Friendly and peaceful

I loved staying at this charming little gitê, it was very well equipped and comfortable, the view over the lake was beautiful it was wonderful to be able sit and eat beside it, we saw flamingos flying overhead and could hear the birds and frogs singing. Fabienne and Ronald are very friendly and so welcoming and they gave us brilliant tips on where to eat and travel around the area. I hope to come and stay with them again..
