About Alain Belment
Dual nationality, living in London. I own this property and rent out for holidays when I am not using. I am very particular about the appearance, comfort and character of the dwelling which I cherish as home from home. I do hope people staying in it, will enjoy and appreciate the effort done to keep it to a high standard. France, with its diversities in climate, customs, food, sceneries and culture, appeals to holiday makers from around the world.
Alain Belment purchased this House in 2000
Why Alain Belment chose Arles City Centre
The Provence area of France has a Mediterranean climate giving its habitants an easy going outlook on life very different from the northern par of Europe. Sceneries, climate and colour of the sky are unique to this part of the world which always enchant me when I visit. The weather is Mediterranean with strong sun shines in the summer making sceneries lit up to forget the grey sky of yesterday.

Lovely French home in a beautiful town,
The house is on four floors but we quickly got used to the stairs. The top floor outside space is delightful and very quiet. The house is well furnished and equipped and we very much appreciated the mosquito blinds on every window. It’s lovely to stay in a residential area with easy access to all the amenities and bus stops.
Many thanks about the house in Arles . I am glad you enjoyed it and look forward to your next visit . Alain Belment
Charming house in beautiful town
This was a home from home. The owner was extremely responsive. Lots to do around about with restaurants, bars music in the streets, culture,history.
House has lots of stairs and in the very hot weather would benefit from proper air con in the bedroom.
Roof terrace is a bonus. Love the winding streets in the neighbourhood. So quiet at night.
Lovely townhouse in the centre of beautiful Arles
Everything about the property was perfect. Location is excellent - lovely restaurants a few minutes walk from the house. You really do get a feel for living in the town. Highly recommended.
Many thanks for your comments . I am glad that you enjoyed the house and Arles.
Wonderful location in a quiet historical area just a few minutes walk from everything
This very old townhouse sits on a quaint street just next to the Rhone River. It is just a few minutes walk from restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and historic sites. We were two couples in our 60s. We sat out on the rooftop terrace with wine and cheese to relax at the end of each day. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions. As mentioned in another review, there are a number of winding stairs to reach the bedrooms and terrace, but they were not a problem for us. We would return to this house again.
Many thanks for your kind words about the house in La Roquette and I do hope that you will use it again and tell your friends who want to visit the provence region of France.
Well located, interesting and well equipped.
Arles is a must for those interested in history, art, eating and drinking and the property fits the bill perfectly.
