Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
The house is an old town house beautifully renovated and retaining many of its original features. It has a large shaded courtyard with high stone walls and two balconies on the top floor.
It is in the centre of the old Medieval town opposite the museum and fabric, clothes and homeware design store of Souleiado. The town lies alongside the River Rhone and has a magnificent castle which was built in 1442 by King Rene, the last of the Provencal rulers. It also has its own theatre along with many restaurants to choose from.
Tarascon can now boast its own Michelin starred restaurant Méo at 1 place du Colonel Berrurier, Tarascon. A 7 minute walk from the house.
Tarascon has a station with trains going to Arles, Avignon, Nimes and Marseilles connecting the town with the whole of France and Europe.
Tarascon has one of the best weekly markets around, with traditional artisanal food producers and much local produce.
Tarascon is at the very heart of Provence, some call it the crossroads of Provence and If coming by car, you don't have to drive very far to see many Roman ruins, vineyards, medieval towns and villages nearby.
Over the bridge is Beaucaire which has its own marina. You can sit beside it and enjoy mussels and chips, or traditional Provencal cuisine in its many quayside restaurants. The marina is part of the Canal de Midi which runs from Toulouse to the Ocean and you can take a boat trip from here through the beautiful countryside.
If you like antiquing Beaucaire has a weekly flea market where you can find many interesting and varied vintage treasures.
In the summer there are many festivals, involving bull running, traditional live music and pageantry in the towns and villages around.

I am a costume designer for films and TV and a blogger about life in Provence. My husband is a painter/sculptor.
This property would suit people looking to explore Provence, as it is very well situated for the towns of Arles, Nimes, Avignon and the Camargue. The house is very much a lived in home with many quirky features giving it character and charm.
One of my favourite things about our town is the weekly market, walks along the Rhone river and being close to the many roman ruins all around, as well wonderful walks.
