Nice apartment and close to everything

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in the old part of the city, close to restaurants, cafes, patisseries, and the Roman ruins. We were a party of five adults and found the flat to be charming and equipped with all we needed for our stay. (The beds are comfortable.) We had somewhat of a hard time navigating the narrow streets, but once we contacted the owner for instructions, Nelly was there to meet us. It is a climb up the narrow stairs, so be prepared. We could walk to everything, so we just parked the car and explored on foot. We were lucky enough to experience the Saturday market and enjoyed a delicious meal around the table, feeling quite French! The only negative was that the neighbors were having a party on Saturday night and kept some of us awake into the wee hours.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a place in the old town of Arles, with history at my front door so to speak. And I was certainly rewarded as this flat is about a 5 minute walk to most historic sites and only steps to the central Place du Forum.

Getting to the flat at first can be tricky with a car. I didn't try driving the narrow streets and parked to the south of the old town. It was a bit of a hike so I recommend packing light if walking in. I will say that this apartment is best for those without a car. Of note the train station is a convenient 10-15 minute walk - a lovely walk through historic Arles and then along the Rhone River. Checking in was easy. We met Nelly at her toy store. She was very friendly, always smiling and she helped us out gettIng in (for English speakers only she does not speak English so be sure to have your questions to the owners in advance).

The apartment is on the third level (or 2nd floor in France). So some stairs are required. Upon entry the apartment is spacious as advertised offering three large bedrooms (one with bath and sink), a nice living space, loft, toilet room, kitchen (stocked with all cutlery, cookware, cups and plates we needed), and washroom with sink and a very nice shower. The house was clean and with the fans the heat here (it was over 30 degrees Celsius every day) was never uncomfortable within the apartment. And despite being in a central location it was never too loud inside either. The space definitely suited the five of us perfectly and we had a great stay.

Outdoors, the Place du Forum is less than a minute walk (and is where Van Gogh painted Cafe la Nuit). Many Roman sites dating back 2000 years are found just a short distance away. Some of places where Vincent Van Gogh painted his most famous paintings are found here (an English language Van Gogh Tour was offered starting at the tourist office on Wednesday at 5:30). If you are a foodie you may wish to consider dining at Rabanel and be sure to get ice cream at Soleileis. Don't miss the incredible market on Saturday morning (there is a smaller one held on Wednesday). And if taking day trips I highly recommend spending a day at the Pont du Gard (the famous aqueduct near Nîmes) and the beautiful village of Les Baux de Provence (don't miss Carrière de Lumière). The train station located nearby from which to take the bus or train to your destination. Just be advised that the busses and train don't run too late to plan accordingly.

Spacious and Airy Apartment in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful weeks in this spacious and airy apartment. The location was very convenient being only a stone’s throw from the Forum and five minutes’ walk from the Arena and other archaeological or historical sites. The shopping and market area and grocery store are also very close.

Arles has many attractions which we explored at our leisure, but also used it as a base to discover the surrounding towns and villages in the hills and the Camargue. The train station is an easy 15 minute walk so a convenient way to get to the larger towns of Avignon, Aix, Montpelier, Marseille and Nimes without the worry of driving and parking.

The apartment itself is very large and can easily accommodate 6 in privacy. It is located on the second floor spanning both sides of an ancient building so even though it was hot outside and no air conditioning, we were able to get a great cross breeze to stay cool. The large French windows also provided pleasant views over the streetscape. It is furnished in a comfortable style and has all the amenities needed for a home away from home. The bathrooms are modern and clean but one point to note is that there is only one toilet which is located off the lounge area. The kitchen even though it is an older style functions well and is conveniently placed with a servery accessing the dining area and lounge. The Wi-Fi also works well.

Nelly the apartment caretaker who owns the gift shop across the street, greeted us with so much warmth and enthusiasm and was a delight. The owner Damien was also very responsive and accommodating and very helpful.

Super comfortable Appt for 6 persons, fantastic customer service, great location for visiting neaby

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I frequently visit (yearly) my family in Montrouge/Clamart France and we had this beautiful furnished 3 room appt Mid Aug 2016.

This appt is very spacious, very clean and comfortable for 6 persons +, is very convenient w/ walking distance of the 2 Supermarkets, Restaurants, Cafes, Ice Creams, Chacuterie, Patiiseries , Cafes, and Boutiques nestle into Arles.

Those Boutiques have unusual clothing, shoes, jewelries, gifts, eyes glasses and they are perfect for people who love rare things like us and are beyond "coquette/coquet"

Our stayed was great! The appt had everything that we needed to make our vacation very comfortable at the South of France. The appt was very neat and clean when we arrived. Nelly was super super friendly/helpful. and so was Damien. Everything was beyond our expectations as we come from USA ...

Every single day we stop by at new beaches. One day trip was so cool and wonderful ... Nimes, Port de Carmague, St Maries sur Mer, Le Graw du Roi, Bandol area (Hyeres, St Sanary Sur Mer). Marseille. We regret that our stay was only one week long.

The weather was perfect during our stay. We definitively come back to this appt. Kudos

Great apartment, great customer service in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

My family and I made this apartment and Arles our base camp during our visit to Provence and had a wonderful time. The apartment was well decorated, clean, and nicely furnished. It slept the six of us quite comfortably. When we were later than expected arriving, Nelly met us after hours to give us the keys. The owners were quick and thorough in responding to questions about the apartment both before our stay and while we were there. The apartment is in the old part of town, just a few blocks from historic sites and the beautiful town square, where we had breakfast and dinner on several occasions. Drives to Avignon, Pont du Gard, the Mediterranean, and other Provencal villages were short and easy. We would definitely stay at this apartment in Arles again.

A LOUER SANS PROBLEME

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est très spatieux, très lumineux conforme à la description sur le site, il peut recevoir 7 personnes sans être les uns sur les autres. Nous avons été accuelli par des propriétaires charmants et soucieux de notre bien être. Nelly la propriétaire du magasin de jouets le Farfantello face à l’appartement était là aussi si nous avions besoin. Pas de problème pour faire les courses.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cet appartement situé dans le coeur historique de Arles. Nous avons découvert cette très belle ville riche en histoires, et en attractions culturelles, les enfants ont adoré.

La plage, du Salin de Giraud est facile d’accès même au mois d’août.

A faire une promenade en bateau sur le petit Rhône pour découvrir la camargue.

Vous pouvez louer cet appartement sans problème, vous passerez un agréable séjour. Seul petit soucis pour garer la voiture, il faut marcher un peu.
