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

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.

What makes this house unique

Change of sceneries and way of living with guaranteed warm and sunny days from April to June and very hot weather ,July to September October to December are cool but pleasant. In Provence you will get a complete rest and change of way of life.

Charming house in beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

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.

Would recommend

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.

Wonderful location in a quiet historical area just a few minutes walk from everything

  • 5 of 5

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.

Sehr schönes Haus mit dem provencialischen Flair sowie allen Annehmlichkeiten

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr schön und in der Stadt direkt am Fluss Rhone, sowie ruhig und gleichzeitig nah am Meer. Ein Nachteil besteht bzgl. eines Parkplatzes am Haus. Am Abend ist immer eine Suche eines geeigneten Parkplatzes für das Auto notwendig. Gleichzeitig wäre es schön, wenn man Koffer oder Gepäck hat vor das Haus fahren könnte. Das ist nur möglich, wenn man einen Schlüssel für die Schranke hat. Wir würden wieder kommen.
