About Savin Colette

We are currently retired, but we have found a job that we really love: hosting visitors. We are at the disposal of our clients.

Savin Colette purchased this house in 2012

Why Savin Colette chose Alpilles

We purchased this property in April 2012, close to Saint Etienne du Gres, because of its charm, commodities and for being just 6 minutes away from Saint Rémy de Provence, in a quiet location.

What makes this house unique

The first storey has a magnificent view over the Alpilles

The gardens with trees are lovely

There are no close neighbours

Very well designed house

Completely restored

With new furniture and layout

Entirely equipped

There are plenty of modern and antique objects, as well as books (large library)

It is the ideal place for family vacations, groups of friends or couples

It is ideally located, as Saint Rémy de Provence was rated as the best city to live by Forbes magazine

It is surrounded by some important cities as Aix en Provence, Avingnon, Arles (rated as a World Heritage Site) and its museum, Marseille, 2013 European culture capital, and its MuCEM, le Luberon (Opède, Ménerbe, Goult, Bonnieux and Gordes, its jewel).

It is also a gastronomic region with many starred chefs (Cabre d'Or, Baumanière, Marc de Passario, ReineSamut) and many others.

Water and mountain activities 80 km away

Cultural activities: Festivals of Avignon and La Roque-d'Anthéron 'Rencontres de la photo' in Arles, music and theatre festivals in Vaison la Romaine, the festival of Orange, and of course Christmas.

It is the ideal place for filling your holiday with activities, with all the calm, charm and comfort of la Bastide des Oliviers.

Well-equipped villa in a pretty Provençal village

  • 5 of 5

La Bastide des Oliviers is a lovely, very well equipped villa in the village of St Etienne du Gres, at the western end of Provence and close to a plethora of interesting and charming places to visit. We visited from the UK as a family of five and absolutely loved spending our two week holiday there. Mr and Mrs Savin were wonderful hosts, providing us with invaluable advice on the attractions in the vicinity as well as lots of local produce to eat. They even cooked us a welcome meal on our arrival day! We could not have wished for anything more.

The pool area at the rear of the house is quiet and secluded and the pool itself is a lovely size for family fun. We spent many happy afternoons there after visiting such places as Avignon (the evening light show in the Palais de Papes is truly spectacular), Arles (the Roman amphitheatre hosted a fabulous demonstration of Carmargue life), and canoeing under the famous Pont du Gard. Nearby towns such as St Remy de Provence, Gordes and Les Baux de Provence were fascinating to wander around, and on every day there seemed to be a market close to the villa in which we could linger...

The villa is beautifully decorated and the inside spaces are as comfortable as those outside. There is every convenience that a visitor can wish for, including a fantastically stocked kitchen, super fast Wifi and air conditioning to make the warm, sultry nights more enjoyable. Each morning before breakfast we even used the villa's bikes to cycle into the nearby village to buy fresh breads.

Overall we can heartily recommend this property as a base to spend both a relaxing and action-packed holiday, according to whatever you wish for. We barely scratched the surface of all that was available for us to do in the area and we will definitely be back!

Belle bastide

  • 5 of 5

De retour dans la région, nous n’avons pas hésité à retourner dans cette belle bastide.

L’accueil est toujours chaleureux, dans cette spacieuse villa avec sa décoration de charme, sa piscine au sel sous les oliviers, non loin de St Rémy de Provence ,c’est un écrin de douceur.

Mme Savin est toujours au petit soin , avec de belles attentions, cagettes de légumes du jardin, bonbons pour les enfants, et champagne à notre arrivée.

Nous avons passé encore un très agréable séjour, merci à vous.

villa sans soucis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de splendides vacances dans cette spatieuse et charmante maison, qui est chaleureusement aménagée. La maison est parfaitement équipée, rien ne manque, l'équipement est plus qu'abondant.

La piscine au sel est située côté sud et dans le jardin, il y a beaucoup de place à l'ombre- indispensable pendant les journées chaudes. Aussi : grande table à l'abri pour manger dehors, même par temps de pluie.

Le quartier est très calme, à courte distance du village (boulangers, épicerie, boucher, poissonier) et facile d'accès si on a envie de rayonner sur toute cette belle région : Les Baux, Saint Rémy, Arles, Nîmes, Avignon, Orange, Aix, la Camargue ..... Des infos pratiques et conseils sur toutes les villes, sites, activités et restaurants sont mises à disposition par les propriétaires.

Nous les félicitons de leur parfaite disponibilité aux questions que nous avions avant la location définitive et au cours de notre séjour. Nous les remercions de leur accueil très chaleureux et personnel et le service qui était parfaitement à la hauteur - ils ont le goût du contact et du rapport humain !

En conclusion : nous trouvons la maison une destination parfaite pour passer des vacances sans aucun soucis !

LA BASTIDE DES OLIVIERS, built in 2001 with a Provencal style, has been completely restored in May 2012 with new equipment.

The 190 sq.m.villa has two storeys, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 3 separate toilets.

3 bedrooms are air-conditioned. Each bedroom has its own safe.

The 50 sq.m. house has a fireplace, a satellite flat screen TV, DVD player, IFI (outdoor) video player.

A well-equipped traditional kitchen, with direct access to the outdoor dining area, and a second dining area next to the pool.

The house has a game room, plenty of sports equipment, a bowling green and 3 private parking spaces.

The garden is decorated with hundred-year-old olive trees, not overlooked, assuring absolute quiet, and a counter current 5x10 m. swimming pool.

The charming village is only 300 m away from the house, and there you will find all services. Just 6 minutes away from Saint Rémy de Provence.

The region is blessed with its location, its climate, the magnificent Alpilles nature park, the nearby Camargues, Le Luberon (Godes, Ménerbe, BonnieuxRousillon, )

Do not forget gastronomy! (there are plenty of starred chefs in the region)

In short, it is a pleasure to live in this region.
