Gorgeous House in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Castelet for 10 days. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable, with three bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths it comfortably accommodated four adults and one child. The outdoor space is a dream with a big pool and a cabana with chairs sofas and tables; it was the perfect afternoon setting.

The location of the bergerie couldn't be better. Private and peaceful yet still close to the places to visit in Provence. The house is just minutes away from Arles, Aix-de-Provence, and Saint Remy.

The owners Frederic and his wife were very welcoming and provided information about restaurants, farmers' markets, and the region, and received us with a sampling of local wines and olive spreads and fresh apricots from the farm.

If we have the chance, we'll definitely be back!

Castelet heaven and beauty

  • 5 of 5

This charming and beautiful home was all that was described. It was beautiful, peaceful, and maintained impeccably. The owners were caring and wanted us to feel right at home. The pool area was perfect and near the house, but private enough to feel apart if there is more than one couple staying at the house. It was easy to cook, with a nice grill area, and large enough for several people,to cook together in the kitchen. We loved being there and never wanted to leave! Overall a great experience and we will return.

Lovely French home

  • 5 of 5

This restored farm building is beautifully furnished with all the amenities necessary for relaxing and feeling at home. It is not far from a small, charming village and a very short drive to Arles. The owner, Frederic, is warm and welcoming. (He speaks French and Spanish with some English. )We loved our stay there. You can cook your own meals or go to one of the many excellent restaurants nearby.

Gorgeous!!! Ein traumhaftes Haus-sensationelles Ambiente.

  • 5 of 5

Eines der herrlichsten Hideaways, die ich jemals kennengelernt habe.Absolute Ruhe, herrlicher Ausblick auf die Provence Richtung Arles. An Ostern blühten die Aprikosenbäume vor den Olivenbäumen. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und ausgesprochen hilfreich. Alles war mehr als perfekt eingerichtet und mehr als erwartet vorhanden. Ein besonderer Luxus: jedes Zimmer hat sein eigenes Bad. In der sehr gut eingerichteten Küche gab es sogar eine Nespresso Maschine incl. Kapseln. Alles war unendlich liebevoll eingerichtet. Sogar 3 Blumensträuße erwarteten uns. Die Außenbereich mit Pool und Poolhaus ist wunderbar gepflegt.

Insgesamt hat man von außen den Eindruck einer sehr alten Bergerie, innen ist alles bestens architektonisch verwandelt und wunderschön hergerichtet.

Abschließend : ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!

Eines ist gewiss: Wir kommen wieder!!

Wunderbares Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unsere Ferienwoche in Fontvieille sehr genossen: tolles, großzügiges Haus, schöner Pool, herrliche Umgebung mit vielen sehenswerten Ausflugszielen. Im Haus war alles vorhanden, was das Urlauberherz begehrt, sehr sauber. Reibungsloser und herzlicher Empfang, inklusive regionalem Wein und Konfitüre.

Merci à Monsieur Bert du chaleureux acceuil!

5 star stay at Le Castelet"

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at “Le Castelet” which is very well hidden behind the rocks and cannot be seen from the road, making it very quiet.

Once we arrived, the place turned out to be even prettier in real life then on picture. A bowl of fresh local fruits and products were waiting for us along with a warm welcome by Mr. Bert, making us forget the voyage and traffic jams very easy.

A very nice embedded swimming pool (including large pool house to relax), overlooking the Provence country on one side, a very well equipped and maintained house on the other.

In the spacious house the living and dining room makes you feel at home and invites you to relax and cool down whenever needed.

Dining outside on the patio (with a state of the art gas cooking plate and fridge) having a pastis and Rosé de Provence with the family, what more do you need?

Only a few minutes away from Fontvieille village, “Le Castelet” is a perfect place to make excursions to Arles, Avignon, Les Baux, Saint Remy and, not in the least, the local wine houses. We visited and bought wine and olive oil at “Le Mas de la Dame” which is worth a stop.

Only a few minutes away from “Le Castelet” you find the Aqueduc Romain and Abbey de Montmajour, both must do’s.

All in all, a 5-star location that calls for a re-visit over time.
