Excellent family location
An outstanding place, very charming and very comfortable. Perfect for a family holiday. Tony has been such a gracious host. Thank you!
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 medieval 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.
Every amenity and facility is available.
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.
