This was our first visit to Saintes Maries de la Mer and were pleasantly surprised to find that the property was Ideally situated within easy walking distance of beach, shops and restaurants, but far enough away to be quiet at night. The town is relatively compact and the mostly centre is traffic-free, making strolling through the streets relaxing and stress-free. On the downside, on arrival we were informed that towels were charged extra, which was not mentioned in the description. Perhaps the biggest omission, however, was any form of comfortable seating. There were wooden, dining room type chairs, but no sofa or easy chairs. The owner did find a couple of plastic patio chairs, but not having somewhere to sit and relax in the evenings was somewhat disappointing. M. Romain did take note of our views and we expect the issue to be resolved in due course. We enjoyed perfect weather and found time to enjoy sunbathing on a couple of the clean sandy beaches, swimming, shopping, checking out the wildlife (horses, bulls and flamingos) and generally enjoying the town and surrounding area. Overall, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in renting this property in the future.

The garden is quite large and indeed surrounded by nature... wild birds flying over, horses snorting behind the fence... we'll miss all those sounds, smells, the views of beautiful Camargue. I'd also like to thank you Isabelle and Christian for organizing the memorable trip over the farm - it was one of the highlights of our trip. Best of luck in the future to yous!
