Overview

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Village Cottage On Quiet Lane, Terrace, Parking

This charming typical french semi-detached home is located on a small, quiet lane right in the Village of St Remy. It is a 4 minute walk to the medieval town center and a 2 minute walk to the local tourist office, boules court, small grocery open 7 days a week, local bakery and many restaurants.

The property was completely renovated in 2013 with new wiring, wi-fi , plumbing, plaster, painting, heating and full air conditioning. New bathrooms and kitchen were designed and installed by a well known english designer who now lives locally.

The ground floor comprises the new kitchen, half bath, large dining area for 4 plus additional comfortable seating to read or relax. There is an adjacent sitting room with satellite tv that can be closed off for a quiet space. French doors open onto a secluded walled terrace with dining table and chairs for 4 plus a lounger. The terrace is bordered by plantings including roses, fragrant jasmine and hydrangea. The kitchen has a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven, coffee machine and toaster plus a wash machine/dryer. The front of the house , opening off the kitchen, has a fenced patio for morning coffee among the flowering planters.

Up the curved stairway are two bedrooms; one with a queen bed and the second with a queen bed that divides into 2 singles if desired. There is a new bathroom with very large shower, toilet and large sink with lots of shelf and drawer space for guests.

The property has an attached garage converted from the original stables. It holds a medium sized car. Large vehicles can be parked a short distance away at the end of the lane.

St Remy de Provence is a magical place that people find they return to year after year. It is at the same time ancient and imbued with modern french chic. It was home to Glanum, founded by the Greeks in the 7th century bc. It later became an important roman settlement. The ruins and museum are fascinating. It was a refuge for Vincent van Gogh who completed many of his famous works depicting the area while in a sanatorium in St Remy. Nearby are the towns of Arles, with its magnificent roman amphitheater and museum, Avignon with its spectacular papal palace and gardens from the 14th century, and the nature reserves of the camargue with its flocks of flamingos and herds of the famous white Camargue horses. Modern day St Remy hosts one of the largest outdoor markets in provence on wednesday mornings as well as many events showcasing the Carmargue cowboys known as guardians riding their white houses and herding the Carmargue black bulls through the streets following the original wall that encircled the town. Wonderful day trips can be taken to the Pont du Gard with its river and amazingly intact roman aqueduct, the famous vineyards of nearby Chateauneuf du Pape and the antique centre of isle sur le Sorgue to name just a few of the nearby attractions.

Very well appointed, very clean, very well located

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our accomodation, it was easy to find, perfectly located, very clean and there was everything that we needed in the cottage to make our stay comfortable.

There was only one thing, we found the front door lock was not that easy to open.

We would highly recommend this property

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate and extremely well stocked, Julie had thought of everything anyone would need and supplied directions (in English, thank goodness) for using all the appliances. The back patio had wonderful--jasmine, roses, hydrangeas--and protection from the wind. It is a few blocks away from restaurants, a small grocery store, and the town center.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted by our stay at this gorgeous house in easy walking distance of the centre of the lovely town of St Remy de Provence. The house itself was superbly equipped, comfortable and beautifully presented. There is a small private outside area for relaxing in. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

St. Remy - Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment (actually half a house) was absolutely perfect for our family during our week in Provence. The home itself is modern and roomy with a very well functioning air conditioning system. The WIFI is fast and reliable. The location is also perfect. The St. Remy town center is a short walk away with plenty of cafes, restaurants and bakeries ... but far enough away to be quiet. There is also a U-Express market literally just up the street. Finally, street parking was easy and never an issue.

Great base for exloring St. Remy & Provence

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house with two friends for 9 days in June. It is well located a few minutes walk south of the St. Remy town centre. The house has been recently renovated and is fully air-conditioned, which was great as the weather was fairly warm during our stay. We found that everything we needed for a short stay was provided, including satellite TV and a good Wi-Fi system. The Tourist Office with a large car park is nearby, and there is small supermarket and a great café/bistro only a few hundred metres away. We found it an ideal base, not only for exploring St. Remy on foot, but for driving tours to different parts of Provence. Highly recommended.

But if you have a car, you will have a private parking space. We have included a complete list of recommendations of restaurents, attractions, days out, etc compiled by a good friend who is a well known travel writer and blogger on Provance and the St Remy area. If you are new to the area or want to try something different, these recommendations will help you find the local, out of the way places you would not otherwise hear about.
