About the property

Very large swimming pool, 4 air-conditioned bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms.

Very quiet, at the end of a cul-de-sac and close to the centre - linen and cleaning included.

In Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, ideally located in a quiet setting right next to the village. Can house 8 people - air-conditioning – secure.

Only 300 metres away from the Saint-Rémy-de-Provence centre, this villa was completely redecorated and newly equipped for seasonal rental in 2014. All the beds, except in the master bedroom, can be joined together or separated. Each bedroom has air-conditioning.

It is only a 5 minute walk to the village centre of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence; the Avignon TGV train station is 20 min away by car, and the Marseille-Marignane international airport is 50 min away.

The house has an approximately 140 sqm living space, and a nice living room opening onto the dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped. The master bedroom is on the first floor and has a 180 cm wide double bed and a private WC with wash basin. The bathroom is on the ground floor and comprises another WC, a wash basin, and a bathtub.

The ground floor also comprises 2 other bedrooms, each with two 90x200 cm twin beds which can be joined together to form a super-king size bed (180x200). These bedrooms share a bathroom complete with washbasin, bathtub and walk-in shower, as well as a separate WC. They open onto the south terrace with access to the swimming pool and the summer lounge.

The studio comprises a large bedroom with air-conditioning and two 90x200 twin beds which can also form a 180x200 double bed, and a shower room with washbasin and WC.

The garden covers over 2000 sqm of tree-filled land; it is beautiful and comprises a 7.5 by 15 metres swimming pool, bathed in Mediterranean aromas. In the summer you can enjoy a meal in the shade on the outdoor dining table, or have a barbecue.

The equipment includes a television, a DVD player, and broadband Wi-Fi. The property is secured with a fence and a gate. There is parking for 6 cars. The pool is secured with an alarm. A boules court is at your disposal.

Come and discover the riches of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. This small town in the Natural Regional Park of the Alpilles is blessed with culture, heritage, and festivals.

In this Provencal capital of 'art de vivre', birthplace of Nostradamus, you will enjoy: gastronomy, local products, olive oil, AOC Baux-de-Provence vineyards, craft industry, the Provencal market, artists, beautiful art galleries and shops, hikes in the wild, places which were immortalized by Van Gogh, the Roman archaeological site of Glanum, the traditional Christmas in Provence, Transhumance and other local festivals, and of course the 300 days of sun per year!

Located in the heart of the Alpilles Mountains, Saint-Rémy is a must-see in Provence. Its green, delicately flavoured valleys, its traditional, beautifully renovated houses, and its charming village streets are responsible for its success...

Simply wandering through its narrow winding streets, you will come across pretty, antique fountains, small, shaded squares, home to pleasant restaurant terraces, and elegant shops.

From the Place Jean Jaurès to the start of the old town, you will see many private mansions (most of which have been converted into museums and art galleries), convents, chapels, and superb residences dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

The beauty of the landscapes and the quality of the lighting have inspired many artists, writers, and painters.

The most famous is without a doubt Van Gogh, who did more than 150 paintings in the Saint-Rémy-de-Provence countryside.

A hike around the different places who found their way onto Van Gogh's canvas will show you the mountains around Saint Rémy, the wheat and poppy fields, the olive trees, and cypresses, which remain untouched after more than 100 years.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a historical city, was built on one of the most ancient archaeological sites in all of Europe. The ruins of Glanum, founded in the third century B.C., and taken by the Romans under Julius Caesar, constitute impressive vestiges of the different civilisations that succeeded each other here. You can visit the vast Roman baths, the long residential avenue, the temple, and the natural springs in this true Gallo-Roman town founded 10 to 30 years B.C. Two important monuments can be seen near the site: the Triumphal Arch and the Mausoleum of the Julii.

Amateurs of ancient architecture, art, and small shops will be delighted by Saint-Rémy. For the last few years, the nice properties around Saint-Rémy and the shaded terraces of the Place Jean Jaurès have attracted celebrities as well. Far from the crowded beaches, artists and celebrities can appreciate the calm and soothing atmosphere of Provence which can be found in Saint-Rémy. As soon as you get here, you will also succumb to its charm... Guaranteed!

The house is as described. It is a well presented and equipped. It has a wonderful garden and is set in a quiet cul de sac. It is only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.

We enjoyed it emmensly.

Wonderful house close to center of town.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully landscaped and sits on a very large lot. The pool is gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The views to the south are of the Alpilles mountains. We enjoyed sitting on the large covered patio looking towards the mountains. The house is located in a very safe and peaceful neighborhood. What a wonderful way to vacation!

Excellent Vacation Rental for 2 Couples

  • 5 of 5

- Great location with easy walk to the town center.

- Beautiful grounds, patio and pool.

- Nice dining area and living space.

- Property was clean and well maintained.

- The pool is beautiful but too cold to use in late September. It would be helpful to offer pool heat for an additional charge.

- Kitchen sink and some cooking accessories should be upgraded.

- The bath and shower for the upstairs master bedroom is on the lower level and is a bit awkward.

- The service by the owner's agent was excellent.

Overall, this is a great vacation rental.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I and 4 family members stayed here for a week and we all loved it. We arrived a few hours earlier than check-in time but the property manager, Nadege was able to accommodate us and let us in early. This was really appreciated after such a long flight. She was helpful and provided all the information we needed. The house and grounds are beautiful. The pool is huge but was a little too cold for any of us to go in. Still nice to look at while we sat outside. I love the little town of Saint Remy and it was very convenient to be able to walk to shops and restaurants. L'olivade was our favorite restaurant. We also had a meal prepared for us at the house by the chef Nadege. It was excellent and presented so beautifully.

It's conveniently located to visit surrounding towns. We went to Avignon, Arles and several other hilltop towns. We especially liked le Baux. We are all hoping to return to this lovely house one day.

Ticked all The boxes!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fantastic week in this wonderful house. There was plenty of room for our group of 5. It was beautifully decorated and fully equipped for a relaxing stay. Located in a quiet cul de sac but a stone' s throw from St remy. Perfect for strolling home after the market or dinner. The gardn was absolutely lovely and we made full use of everything. After touring the region we would have a swim every day followed by a very competitive game of pétanque, apero in hand! Plenty of shady spots as well to read a book or discuss the day's events.

We also made good use of the complimentary bikes, perfect for collecting the morning baguette or discovering the back roads.

Un grand merci to the lovely Floriane who was always available when needed.

Reluctant review

  • 5 of 5

There are occasions when you find something so exceptional that you would like to keep it a secret so that it does not become so popular and difficult to book – hence the title of this review. The property is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a secluded part of St Remy and features a large house, garden and swimming pool surrounded by high hedges that provide privacy. One could imagine that you are staying at a small exclusive hotel without any other guests. As advertised the property is a short walk to the town center with many restaurants available for lunch and dinner. St Remy is an ideal base for visiting many of the historical towns and villages in the area, Nimes, Avignon, Gordes etc. all less than a one hour drive.

Nadege and her assistant Julien were the perfect hosts and were readily available to help with any request and even arranged a visit to a dentist for one of our party.

In summary, the property was an outstanding feature of an exceptional vacation.
