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.

The (well equipped) accommodation is spread over a number of floors and copes well with large numbers (we were 19). Even the weather was wonderful in late October which meant we were able to explore the surrounding countryside. The host was very helpful and attentive, and responded quickly to any questions. Convenient location close to Marseille airport and also Aix. We would be very happy to return and are happy to recommend it.

The unit is extremely clean and modern with every amenity and then some. It even has a loft with ladder and 2 mattresses for those able to climb in addition to its bedroom beside the bathroom. I loved the windows and kept them open until the noise level on the street became somewhat overwhelming. There is also a fan and aircon for comfort, coffee-maker, microwave and the proprietors included juice and a lovely gift of local almond "patisserie". Finding the unit was a bit tricky and I would recommend that the 2 restaurants that flank it should be included in the directions for finding it. Paul and Arlette were splendidly helpful, especially with our luggage and instructions on where to park to avoid the hefty parking fees should you bring a car. Apparently there is a bus parking lot for a couple euros that includes bus transportation daily for you and your passengers. The locale is so uniquely placed that it was like the hub of a wheel of cobblestone streets and any direction led you to delightful discoveries. All was included (no extra charges for towels and sheets) and the fee for housecleaning was 30 euros (though the door list of cleaning mentioned 70 euros but perhaps that was dependant upon the state of the apartment upon checkout). Splendide hospitalite et merci pour tout, Paul/Arlette.
