Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to say that we had a great time

in Arles last week, and thank you for your warm welcome.

We saw some great work (including yours) and it was a

change for us to enjoy some sun. We are back home now

and it is cold, windy and raining.

Thanks again Richard,

Best wishes

Lovely little house in the middle of Arles

  • 4 of 5

A charming house in a quiet part of old Arles, a very short walk from Les Arenes and all the other sights. It is well appointed, comfortable and clean, with excellent wifi. Richard sent us good directions for driving into the old town (tip – use Google street view to “drive” the route through the old town before coming to Arles). He met us at the house on our arrival, provided useful suggestions for sightseeing, and shared a glass of wine with us before escorting us to a friend’s restaurant nearby. Arles is a fascinating town, lots of history and character, and an excellent base for exploring further afield.

Great location near the amphitheater. Older home but comfortable. Richard was very helpful when we had trouble locating his apartment and shared a Glass of wine with us upon our arrival.

This one-bedroom with bonus loft and 2 living areas is in a quiet location only one block from the arena and restaurants. It is a short walk to most of the shopping and to the Tourist Information Center. It's only a ten-minute walk to the train station. The owner, Richard, greeted us upon arrival to show us the apartment. He speaks excellent English and later arranged for a private (early) ride to get us to the distant Marseille/Provence airport. Although the kitchen is small, it is perfectly adequate. We had an excellent stay in Arles and could not have hoped for a better place to stay.

Spacious house, Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This ancient house has been thoughtfully updated. Appliances all worked well and wifi was strong and consistent. We were met at the train station. A map and current information awaited us at the house. We obtained the Arles tourist card and walked to all the attractions from this centrally located house literally steps away from the amphitheater and the theater. Wednesday market too is just down the steps where you can continue to stroll along the river Rhone to a good museum and view the ruins of the Roman baths. We picked this city for its UNESCO designation and the house because of the location and the ease of communication with the owner.

Idéal pour découvrir ou visiter Arles

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert une très belle maison de ville, confortable, agréable, très "facile à vivre", avec tout le nécessaire à disposition (vaisselle, literie, équipement TV, Wifi, livres, BD). Le quartier de l'Hauture, typique, est lui aussi très agréable à vivre, calme, et proche cependant du cœur de la ville. L'accueil que nous réservé M. Richard Petit est chaleureux. On se sent vite dans sa maison de caractère "comme chez soi". Nous étions deux adultes + deux enfants. Le logement s'est révélé parfait pour la découverte d'Arles en famille, en toute tranquillité (nombreuses rues piétonnes). Idéalement placé dans le centre historique, à proximité de l'arène, des musées, des boutiques, des restaurants, du marché. Nous n'avons manqué de rien. Notre séjour en famille de douze jours fut un très bon moment. Merci à vous.

Car: not necessary

Built in the hills around Arles, a few metres from Arènes and the Roman Théâtre Antique, in the very quiet Hauture district. You will be in the middle of a 2000 year old town which you can explore on foot! This area has a slow pace of life, like in a village. The traffic is regulated. You will find several restaurants and shops, as well as a beautiful public garden (shaded, quiet, children's play area). Arles is the former Roman capital and boasts and abundance of archaeological treasures. It also has lots of modern culture such as a photography festival, bullfighting and music. Arles is an excellent base from which to discover Provence, the pre-Alps, Avignon or Nimes. The fun of the seaside is not far away: within half an hour you can drive through Camargue to the beaches in Saintes Maries de la Mer or Salin de Giraud, where you may see flamingos.
