About Owner/Property Manager
British owner living locally.
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence
This property is really well situated within walking distance to the centre of town (7 mins) but away from the noise of the bars and restaurants during the summer months. Set in lovely maintained gardens and with a very large pool as well as your own private garden/terrace you get the best of both worlds. Private parking guaranteed and a secure gated entry system. Hire a car and take off for a different destination every day to really discover the best of what this area has to offer. From the beautiful Calanques along the coast from Marseille, the flora and fauna of the Camargue with its traditions and festivities and the many, many idyllic villages in the surrounding area. Come back in the evening to stroll around the beautiful town of St Remy de Provence and choose from a wealth of restaurants and cafés offering an excellent selection of modern and traditional cuisine, or relax with a glass of chilled rosé on the terrace in your private garden after a later afternoon dip in the pool.

Come here - there is so much to enjoy.
The mazet was adequate for our needs, and cheerfully furnished. The neighbours were friendly and chatty but not intrusive. It was located ten minutes walk from the centre of town where there were a large number of excellent restaurants and cafes, a baker with a wide range of most enjoyable bread and pastries, shops for souvenirs, and a church; it was also the same distance from the roman remains, and from the bull ring (a must to visit anywhere around the Camargue for the highly entertaining Course Carmarguaise and Toro Piscine). We particularly liked having a reserved parking space by the mazet. We took days out in Avingnon (The New Town, Villeneuve, is an often overlooked gem but which we loved, while the old town was rather overrun with roadworks due to the new tram network that is being built), down to the Camargue for the Flamingo Park, the beach at Les Saintes Maries De La Mer, and the old roman walls at Aigues-Mortes. The Paella is excellent in these towns and is at least as good as anything you will get in Spain. Finally we went to watch the birds and the salt pans at the moonscape that is Salin-de-Giraud. Arles has extensive roman ruins as well as an ampitheatre that is still used, however we struggled to find anywhere to park and could only drive past. Lastly we headed up to the hills to Les Baux, about 15 minutes drive away, which is a very beautiful village in an old hill fort. Parking was outside the village and was cheap, but is metered and closely patrolled so you need to make sure you book enough time to walk up from the car (10-15 minutes each way) as well as eat and shop. Lastly it was great to enjoy the French celebrations at winning the World Cup. The only slight disappointment was that there was no grill or oven in the mazet so we had to make do with using the microwave to cook our pizza in for our night in.
In short, Come here! There is so much to enjoy,
Thank you so much for writing such a detailed review. I'm really pleased that you both enjoyed your stay so much.
I was sorry to hear about the pizza / grill as I have a small oven for the mazet in the outside shed but I put it away during the summer months as no-one has ever used it.With it being so hot most people tend to use the barbecue and gas & electric hobs for cooking or perhaps the microwave for heating up baby food.
I wish you a very pleasant end of the summer. Thanks again
We spent 3 wonderful weeks in this small but well equipped mazet. The enclosed patio provides a calm space for reading. The mazet is very well located, close to the village but also a good base to start hiking in the Alpilles.
Helen is a very relaxed and easy going host. She even suprised us with a welcoming package including a bottle of wine. Thanks again!
Schönes kleines Häuschen in gepflegter Anlage
Das Häuschen ist liebevoll eingerichtet, besitzt eine große, schattige Terrasse und liegt fußläufig vom pittoresken St Remy entfernt. Die Kinder lieben den gepflegten, großen Pool. Viele Attraktionen in der Provence sind mit dem Auto in kurzer Zeit erreichbar.
Thank you for writing such a nice review; it is always rewarding when people enjoy staying at my mazet and I really appreciate the extra effort to write a review.
I wish you all a great end of summer holidays and enjoyable return to school / work etc.
