Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house. We rented Patrice and Sylvie's Beautiful house in La Roquette as a Canadian base for our family when we were in Arles for our daughter's wedding this September. There was plenty of space for the eight of us with four spacious and comfortable bedrooms ( with spectacular linens) on the second and third floors and two beautiful bathrooms. The main floor had ample living space and a well-equipped kitchen, but the hidden gem Is the lovely garden in the back which extends the living room. The house has tall ceilings, beautiful art and furnishings. We also loved the neighborhood which was in walking distance of everything and there was an excellent boulangerie just around the corner. The owners are responsive and gracious, it was a pleasure to speak with them as we made our arrangements. Camille who manages the house met us on the day of arrival and was available whenever we had questions.

On the day of our daughter's wedding, our entire family walked through the old streets to the Place de la République to her wedding ceremony, it was magical .

I would highly recommend this house and we would rent it again should we find ourselves back in Arles. Many many thanks Patrice and Sylvie's.

Central location with a charming Bohemian Vibe

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Arles the second week of June and had a wonderful time. My daughters love all of the art museums in and around Arles and absolutely loved the art hanging in this charming apartment. The courtyard complete with dining table and a fig tree was a lovely place to have dinner. Camille welcomed us with a bottle of wine and was incredibly helpful during our stay. The apartment was well located with a bakery right around the corner for those morning croissants and pastries. All of the sites were within walking distance. I wouldn't recommend a car as the streets are incredibly narrow, however there are parking lots a few blocks away. It was very warm during the time we were there so several of the rooms did get a little warm at night and opening windows let in unwanted mosquitos. My room had a wonderful ceiling fan and I was quite comfortable. My family of 8 enjoyed our time having relaxed dinners in this apartment as much as we did seeing the sites. I would highly recommend this property and hope to visit again someday.

Great house for families or a group

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this very nice home and community. The location is great with an easy ability to walk to the grocery store, gathering squares, shops/restaurants, sights, etc. The house is spacious with a well equipped kitchen. The market, especially Saturday, is abundant and varied with sundry food choices and textiles. It's an epicurean delight! The Arles community and people are welcoming and pleasant. A wonderful location and experience.

A Provençal Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with a family of five adults. The house is just as beautiful as it is in the pictures! Every room is spacious with tall ceilings. The house was spotless, in good condition, and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the backyard with the covered sitting area (with ceiling fan to keep away bugs). I do recommend mosquito repellent for August weather. The hosts were extremely helpful and gladly recommended wines, food, and restaurants to try including a delightful 'Le Gibolin' within close walking distance. There is a charming patisserie a block and a half down the street from the house with delicious croissants, pains au chocolate, and baguettes. We stayed in Arles for our home base in Provence, having rented a car. Free public parking is available about three blocks away. I highly recommend this house!

Beautiful, calm house, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

An extremely charming and calm house comfortable and with very good positionning, a very charming garden and althought we came in February we were able to enjoy eating ouside which was just wonderful.

Arles is a cute city, very lively, espectially on market day. One end of the market is litterally 2 streets away and once you are on it, you'll spend half the day buying great food!

Highly recommended!
