About Julien

Hello !

My wife Lucie and I, are the happy owner of this great villa where we spend only a very few time each year. We are living and working in Saint Rémy, Lucie as a web marketing advisor, and me as a real estate agent specialized in seasonal rental, that is why we are taking great care of our guests ! We are very aware of suggestions to keep offering the best experience !

Julien purchased this house in 2012

Why Julien chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

Saint Rémy de Provence is THE village of the Alpilles area. Of course, others are beautiful also, and you have to visit them, but St Rémy is the most popular with lots of restaurants and shops, and even a great authentic and provencal atmosphere, little village places full of charm, and still quiet (except during wednesday morning as it is a famous and very well known provencal market).

Saint Rémy is also ideal as a basis to visit Provence, close by the TGV train station of Avignon (20 minutes) that offer direct line to Paris in 2H30, St rémy ios also 45 minutes from Marseille international airport.

What makes this house unique

The great points :

Before offering this villa for rent, we used to live in for about a complete year, and we have experienced this very quiet surrounding, while it is very close to town. We love its garden plenty of charm and we maintain it at its best level. There is a cherry tree plenty of fruits during May-begining of June, an abricot tree for July, and a figue tree for September, as well as a vigne in September/October also !

The house is very well built with a perfect thermal insulation (double insulated walls, 30cm of glass wool over head, double glazed windows..) so we do not suffer at all from warmth. Also, there is an air conditioning system in the living room and the master bedroom for the warmest days .

We do improve the house and its equipments all year long, and pay great attention to its maintenance. Everything is working well.

We couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a week at this beautiful and comfortable home. We were six people from 4 generations, from my 85 year old mother to my 24 year old granddaughter, and it was perfect for all of us. My son and daughter-in-law were in the master bedroom and my granddaughter in the second bedroom all overlooking the pool and beautiful backyard. My mother was in the third bedroom and had her own private bath. All these rooms have amble closets and storage and very comfortable bedding with quality linens. My husband and I stayed in the studio and loved the privacy and coziness. Outside the french doors is a lovely arbor covered in yellow roses. The grounds are beautifully kept. Julien arranged a local chef for us, Nadege, who prepared a delicious meal for us one night in the house. She was a delight! The laundry room is large and efficient with racks for drying items that couldn't be put in the dryer. The kitchen is well equipped.

It was a very easy walk into town which saved on the hassle of parking. There are many very good restaurants and shops in the charming town of Saint Remy, and it's the perfect location from which to venture. We highly recommend La Maison Du Gecko and hope to be able to return!

Welcoming and warm despite the weather

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable holiday in St Remy. Unfortunately, the weather was rather cool and rainy but it was so nice to return to such a warm, comfortable and spacious house after a day out. The heated pool was a great bonus. The house is very well placed for a stroll into St Remy or to explore the surrounding towns and villages and Jenelle's help and advice on local restaurants and places of interest was much appreciated. Thank you!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful house in Saint-Rémy. Jenelle was really welcoming and nice, and had many great tips for us. Thank you! Julien also provided us with toys for our children, which was great.

The house is very nice, and it has everything you need to relax and enjoy your vacation. Good bedding, nice bathrooms and lovely patios. We even got to try the beautiful pool in late March. That was awesome!

The location is good, only a short walk to Saint-Rémy, and a short drive from other villages like Baux, Maussane and Eygalières. We also enjoyed the housekeeping twice a week.

We will certainly return!

Perfect Late Fall Week in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion of 8 people (teenagers through grandparents) had a marvelous stay! The house was spacious and beautifully appointed, the beds and bedding very comfortable, and the kitchen very well equipped. To clarify the HomeAway description: the main house has 3 BR with the equivalent of two full bathrooms, and the studio has an additional BR with full bathroom. We enjoyed the yard and outdoor seating areas even during the late fall. The location is perfect for day trips to the surrounding sites (Pont du Gard, Arles, Avignon, Aix, Nimes, Les Baux, Gordes, etc.), but it is also important to note what a gem St. Remy is. We loved biking and walking around the quaint downtown area, the Roman ruins, and the Van Gogh painting trail. Thank you to Julien for sharing his lovely home and to Janelle for making us feel welcome!
