New Shower room fully tiled with walk in shower and new WC, completed May 2016. Bedroom with feature 4 poster double bed and pretty painted wardrobe.

The house is across from a small leafy square. The ground floor comprises entrance into living room with open stone fireplace, leading to hallway and bathroom. On through is the spacious kitchen/diner. Stone staircase leads to bedroom with 4 poster, 2 chests of drawers and wardrobe.

To the rear of the bedroom is a door leading to outside space suitable for drying towels/clothes.

St Remy, birthplace of Nostradamus and home to Vincent Van Gogh while he was in the sanatorium here. This was the psychiatric hospital where VanGogh committed himself after he cut his own ear off. Here, he did more than 100 pieces of art, many of which were his most important and most famous paintings. This is a 'must-see' for the area. It’s a self-guided walking tour with placards in English.

You can see the actual walls and gardens in the spots that inspired Van Gogh. There are placards that show a copy of his painting, in the spot where he stood to paint it. This allows you to compare the painting to how the exact spot looks today. For many spots, the similarities are amazing.

About Tim & Jenny Pope

Tim & Jenny Pope. We both love Provence and particularly this area around the Alpilles, We spent 16 years in Germany working and then back to England for 12 years to Somerset which was wonderful in many ways but then we decided to buy some property in Provence. We are currently developing a house in nearby Eyragues. We also manage/ rent other properties in St Remy de Provence.

Tim & Jenny Pope purchased this house in 2009

Why Tim & Jenny Pope chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

We both fell in love with this house immediately and loved it's character and charm. It is ideal for visitors to St Remy who want 1 bedroom and a homely feel. Many couples want the independence and privacy of a house instead of a multi-national hotel with generic rooms etc.

What makes this house unique

Right in the historic center of St Remy just a stones throw away from the shops, cafes & restaurants. No need to drive out to eat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Second time in St Remy and first time in this beautiful house. It's our home in St Remy!!! We will return!!

Quaint little house a stones throw from every where. Exactly as described. Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Tim and Jenny were amazing hosts. They were always available to give advice. We loved their house - it is exactly as described and less than a minutes walk from the shops, restaurant and supermarket. Free parking is available close by.

This is the perfect base for a holiday in Provence. Look no further. This is the place to stay

Unique space in the heart of St. Remy

  • 5 of 5

Old world charm with modern day amenities. Walking distance to all St. Remy has to offer. Tim and Jenny are delightful owners who assisted us beyond their responsibilities. After a full day of touring, it was wonderful to relax with music or a movie in our private space. As far as lodging was concerned, we were very pleased with our decision to stay here for ten days!

Lovely Provençal hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a couple! The kitchen is well supplied and the living area is cozy. Love the romantic four poster bedroom. Perfect to wake up right in the center of town, croissants fifty yards away.

St Remy is an ideal base to explore the region, or to sample the delights of in town living.

A delightful step into another century

  • 5 of 5

No. 9 Rue de Petit Puis is a gem. The sense of traveling back in time with all the modern conveniences, though we didn't use the TV once. Romantic, atmospheric, thoroughly warm and welcoming. Tim and Penny are delightful hosts and St. Remy is the perfect place from which to explore Provence and the Cotes du Rhone.

Beautifully authentic stay in Provance

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tim and Jenny for a lovely stay in Saint Remy. The house was just perfect for a relaxing few days after an adventurous week in the Alps. I really appreciate the extra goodies like firewood and wine. Thank you. Perhaps I will have the opportunity to stay with you again.

Well, both of us now use photos taken in St Remy for iPad wallpaper: one inside the house and one outside. We very much hope to come back.

Old Provence with villages and towns nestling either side of the Alpilles mountains. Warm summers long warm Autumns. Cold crisp short winters.

Pont de Gard with its original Roman aquaduct. Les Baux a hilltop village with stunning views of the Camargue and a Fort with working siege machines. Bike rentals in Town, rates on application.

How about a day out driving through the Provence and the Luberon in a chauffeur driven Classic Jaguar Sovereign,options include a tour & lunch outside under shady trees at a vineyard overlooking Mount Ventoux. Or perhaps wine tasting in the Alpilles followed by lunch at Le Bistro du Paradou (made famous in Peter Mayle's 'A year in Provence') Cost €35 per hour.
