Villa Romantique is a stunning and very spacious stone-built villa with a magnificent Roman arena-style colonnaded circular swimming pool, superbly located on a hilltop, giving you the most wonderful panoramic views. It basks in the sunshine and the very special light of this Provence/Languedoc region. As perfect for 2 as it is for 12 with substantial discounts for lower occupancy.
You are centrally located in the circle created by beautiful Avignon, St Remy de Provence, Arles, Nimes and the Pont du Gard, and conveniently no more than 12 miles (20 kms) from each, yet only about 45 minutes drive to the Mediterranean.
Villa Romantique was built around an old circular stone tower with windows certainly dating from 1820.
It has been renovated with immense style to provide very appealing, elegant and spacious accommodation combining old style charm and original Provencal features.
Electronic Gates. Walled garden .Private location. Not overlooked nor do you overlook any othe
Many thanks for a lovely holiday. The villa was lovely and the pool was a great hit - even my 2-year old made quite a lot of progress in water confidence, which was wonderful.
Best wishes and thanks again
Kirstin and all the extended family
Villa Romantique is just 1 mile (1.5 km) out of the historic medieval town of Beaucaire, with its imposing 12th century ruined castle perched high on a rock overlooking the majestic river Rhône and its equally lovely neighbour Tarascon on the opposite bank . There is a delightful river marina crammed with colourful boats of all shapes and sizes which is bordered with restaurants and bars full of character. Alongside the marina the square is shaded by the typical spreading plane trees (platanes) so loved in village and town squares throughout this region.
Beaucaire was such an important market place in France throughout the Middle Ages that prices struck here for commodities such as wine, cheese, fruit, meat, metals, timber, leather,silk, pots and pans became the norm throughout France. Its Medieval Fairs attracted buyers and sellers from all over Europe and Asia and there are countless ancient buildings which bear witness to Beaucaire's great past.
