Overview

About the property

Recently Restored Two Bedroom House In The Heart Of The Historic Quarter

Le Petit Bijou is in the Provencal town of Saint Rémy-de-Provence in southern France and is owned by the author Vicki Archer. The house is inspired by the spirit of Vicki's books and her blog ‘French Essence’.

Le Petit Bijou underwent a two year restoration led by the talented local architect Hugues Bosc and has been decorated by Vicki with many pieces sourced from local brocantes.

Vicki has created something that works for those who would like to discover Provence in a stylish way. Le Petit Bijou is all about providing a supremely comfortable retreat after a day of discovery in the region.

Le Petit Bijou is an air-conditioned, two story village house with a sitting room and dining area on the ground floor with a connected kitchen, guest powder-room and a lobby room. The first floor comprises a master bedroom and a double bedroom. The double bedroom opens onto a terrace with views over the garden of the Hôtel de Sade and the village rooftops. There is a separate WC and a bathroom with a shower and bath.

Le Petit Bijou was featured in the August 2014 edition of ''25 Beautiful Homes''.

Le Petit Bijou is right in the center of Saint Rémy-de-Provence in the historical precinct close to the Musée des Alpilles and the Hôtel de Sade. It is in a quiet street off the rue Carnot with its restaurants, a patisserie and a presse. Saint Rémy’s Wednesday market is only a few hundred metres away. The spectacular Alpilles mountain range and the gorgeous village of Eygalieres are nearby.

Saint Rémy-de-Provence is a brilliant jumping off point for Avignon, Aîx-en-Provence, Arles, Maussane-les-Alpilles, Marseille, Nimes and the Camargue. The Luberon, Gordes and Sénanque Abbey with its lavender fields are about 50 minutes away.

The area is well served with transport links.

By train: It is 20kms and 25 minutes’ drive from the TGV fast train station outside Avignon. The TGV operates direct to Avignon from London in the summer months and from Paris year round.

By air: It is 75kms and about 55 minutes’ drive from Marseille Provence airport. There are daily flights to Marseille from London by British Airways, EasyJet and Ryanair and by Air France from Paris. XL Airways operates a New York to Marseille service. The smaller Avignon airport (20kms and 20 minutes) is served by Flybe from Southampton.

Rental cars are available at Avignon TGV train station, Avignon Airport and Marseille Provence Airport.

Great stay in the heart of St. Remy

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two teenagers) stayed here for 3 nights. Bright, airy space, in the historic pedestrian area of St. Remy. Fabulous location, an easy 2-minute walk to cafes, ice cream and shops. Le Petit Bijou was clean and well equipped with special attention to details. St.Remy is a vibrant town (bigger than a village) with easy access to so many areas; Avignon, beautiful Les Baux, even the seaside town of Cassis (a 90 minute drive). The host let us check in early, which was greatly appreciated, and was attentive to our concerns. We also had a parking spot right outside of our home, although several neighbors advised us not to park there on market day, as the street was very narrow for cars to pass through and we risked getting our car dented/scratched.

Stunning, idyllic, South of France fairy tale

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don’t do this beautiful home justice!

We were excited before we ever got there then completely charmed and blown away when we arrived.

Christiane, who met us had everything in perfect order- and though she spoke very little English and we spoke even less French we managed to charade our way through all the instructions and operations. She was a delight and cheerfully available whenever we had questions.

The home was perfection from top to bottom and embellished with so many gracious, homey, details; orchids everywhere, books in the cabinet, charming vignettes of objet on the tables, nice fabric hand towels, wonderful bedding, well thought out storage for luggage and clothes. Vicki Archer has infused every inch of this charmer with her spirit and wonderful hospitality. We really felt like guests.

The petit little house was a wonderful home base for our exploration of the South of France and St Remy de Provence was one of my favorite little villages-so quaint and quintessential. There are wonderful restaurants around the village, lovely shops, and interesting excursions all within walking distance.

We’ve rented many vacation homes- and usually we find very very good ones- but this place stands out as the very best.

Charming, comfortable, central

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was perfect for two couples; extremely comfortable as well as beautifully decorated. We loved the location in the old town of St Remy and enjoyed exploring the laneways. The house was also a great base for day trips to the Luberon, the Pont du Gard and Les Baux and the Carrières de Lumières. We should have scheduled in extra downtime so we could spend more time enjoying the ambience of a beautifully restored old stone house. People watching from the dining table was great fun. Parking was occasionally challenging but usually worked out.

October in Le Petit Bijou

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Le Petit Bijou was outstanding. Everything in the house is as it is pictured and in perfect and immaculate condition and in superb working order. My husband and I are great tourers so we used LPB as our home base and returned home to have a glass of wine either on our terrace or in a cafe in St Remy, just minutes away. Everything necessary is around the corner, including great restaurants, patisseries, boulangeries and of course the famous market. St. Remy is a great walking town.

Arrangements to rent were very easily made and Christiane, the local manager, was on hand to welcome us and provide guidance whenever needed.

It is indeed a jewel.

Perfect location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our recent visit to St. Remy. Le Petit Bijou was a welcome sight after staying in hotels in Italy. The first full day at LPB, we took care of our laundry, walked around the lovely village, shopped, and enjoy a delightful meal at Le Laille ou la Cuisse. (It was so good, we went back for a 2nd time)

St. Remy is, as stated in other reviews, a perfect base for venturing out to see other towns nearby. But there is so much to see in St. Remy too: Glanum, the Greek/Roman ancient city - fascinating, Saint Paul de Mausole, where Vincent van Gogh spent a year recuperating and painting, and Les Baux - a quick 20 minute drive away.

We would definitely recommend Le Petit Bijou! (Also thank you to Christianne (sp) who manages the house. She took the time and effort to meet us near the church on our first night to "guide us" to the house! We had traveled all day, car, plane, train, and we were exhausted! )
