We had a wonderful time at Villa Nova and in Provence. I think Villa Nova and your attention to details are perfect. It is the perfect place, perfect amenities and perfect location. I would recommend it to all my family and friends. My husband and I will be back someday soon.
It was with sadness that I left St Remy on Friday 5/25. I really did
not want to go. We had a nice time in Carcassonne and a fabulous time in Paris celebrating Mary Ellen's birthday but St Remy kept my heart.
Thank you for all you did to make our stay comfortable. I really do
appreciate it. Your son is adorable, we enjoyed meeting him.
My husband and I spent 9 nights in St Remy at this delightful townhouse. I can heartily endorse the comments of the 2 previous reviewers. The apartment was spacious, modern and spotless, very well equipped with high quality appliances and furnishings, and the availability of a private car park in a secure gated community was fantastic. The grounds were simply beautiful with lavender just beginning to flower and we thoroughly enjoyed returning each day from our travels to this comfortable and refreshing environment. Julie, the manager was very helpful and available to answer our queries, and the information provided in her booklet was great. St Remy itself is a lovely town and the apartment was a very good base for day trips to surrounding areas; the walk into town only a few short minutes. Our stay here was extremely enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend it - we would be very happy to return!
Villa Nova is a real gem. If you plan on staying in St Rémy, this is the place for you. The villa is located about 7 minutes from the city center. It is in a quaint gated community with ambiance plus plus plus. ; as soon as you enter the area, you get the “oh yes “ feeling. Then when you go in the villa, you get the “wow” factor. The villa has everything you need for a “home away from home” place. This two storey villa has two lovely bedrooms and one full bathroom on the upper level. The main level offers a roomy living / dining area, a super well equipped kitchen and a powder room. There is also a patio where you can enjoy a meal or read a book. The place is clean, modern and has all the luxuries one needs for a perfect holiday. ( expresso coffee machine, wifi, television, c.d. player, land line telephone, washer/ dryer, dishwasher, etc.) My sisters and I spent 6 nights at Villa Nova. I could have easily have settled there for a month.
Julie is the perfect property manager. She has a booklet with all the info you need for the villa. She was also very helpful in giving us very useful suggestions for the area. All transactions with Julie were pleasant, professional and smooth.
If Provence is your destination, consider St Rémy as a hub. You can easily walk everywhere in the town. Do not miss the Wednesday morning market, the Vincent Van Gogh walk, the St Paul de Mausole to name a few. Julie has a good collection of books and maps you can consult for the area. We were able to do many day trips comfortably knowing that we were coming home to our little gem at Villa Nova.
Our stay at Villa Nova and St Rémy was so special. I would go back there in a heartbeat.
Villa Nova was the right choice for us on our visit to Provence. Set in the courtyard of an old villa, the townhouse has everything we needed to make our stay an absolute delight. We used the terrace for wine , cheese and olives at the end of each day and enjoyed the comfort of the living area when temperatures got cooler in the evening. There were 3 of us traveling and the two bedrooms and 1.5 baths were perfect. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals which, given the the abundance of food shops and locally sourced meats and vegetables in St Remy, we did with some regularity. The townhouse was immaculate and Julie, the property manager, was always available for questions. The standard one is usually how to program settings for the washing machine but the instructions Julie left were good enough for even us to understand. Having available, off street parking was also a nice plus. Villa Nova is just a very short 5 minute walk to the Place Republic and the center of St Remy. We would head into town at the end of the day either for dinner or just a cafe on the street for people-watching. For days that you might not feel like driving, St Remy is a great town with museums, a wonderful weekly street market, Roman ruins and very good restaurants. Van Gogh spent time at a local hospital and you can feel his presence when you look at the Alpilles, olive trees, and fields that ring the town. The town is full of charm and Villa Nova only improves the overall experience.
This was a lovely house with plenty of room for the 4 of us, as we were two couples. We settled in quickly to the townhouse which is set in a secured quaint courtyard of an old villa. The view from both bedroom windows were just beautiful, one overlooking the courtyard and the other had a rushing stream out the back. The was a nice comfortable sitting area on the main floor, a lovely patio with a table, a large kitchen fully equipped, two lovely bedrooms, a full bathroom with shower and a large extra two piece bathroom. Everything was clean, modern and up to date, with a French charm to it. Julie the property manager was wonderful to deal with and was responsive with any questions. St. Remy was a really nice village with great restaurants, shops, patisseries and gelato! We were just a 2 minute walk to the center of the village and we really enjoyed our time in this charming town and villa. We lucked out and we were there on the Patron St. Day when the running of the sheep took place! We loved the patisserie that was just down the street from the villa and enjoyed fresh pastries from there each morning.
Just finished a fantastic week in St Remy staying at this unit in Villa Nova. The place could not have been any more perfect: central location yet quiet and with secure private parking, well furnished and cute inside, and with a property manager, Julie, who is second to none. We loved exploring Provence using St Remy as our base, so pleasant to come back to our home away from home each day and stroll the streets of St Remy for shopping, boulangeries, and restaurants. Of all the places I have stayed using vrbo I think this is the best ever. Especially with such great service from Julie (did I mention how awesome she was?). Highly recommend this place for anyone coming to St Remy.
We spent 5 fabulous nights in this spotless, well equipped two bedroom townhouse located within the gates of a lovely courtyard adorned by a fountain and wonderful main house. Julie greeted us and was very helpful. She had provided several leaflets and ideas about what to do in the area. The house is an easy walk into town and only steps to the local boulangerie. St Remy was a superb location from which to visit many of the highlights of Provence. We visited Nimes, Uzes, Cassis (be sure to take the Route de Cretes outside of Cassis), Aix en Provence, Avignon, and Les Baux. We highly recommend that you go to Carrieres de Lumieres just a 10 minute walk from the fortress city of les Baux. Les Carrieres are huge quarries on which are projected artwork on the walls and floors to music. It was so unusual and absolutely breathtaking. Well worth the 15E. Be sure to go to the market in St. Remy. Ever ynight we returned to the lovely calm and charm of our town house and sat on our patio enjoying wine and cheese. Highly recommend this rental. Thanks Julie.
