With over 150 five-star reviews on Tripadvisor, PROVENCE PARADISE is the perfect place to discover St. Remy and the Provence Region.

About Stéphanie MOORE

In 2017, we will be celebrating 12 years of international guest satisfaction and 12 years of solid relationships with local service providers, who allow us to offer top-notch recommendations--- for restaurants, adventure, and relaxation.

Stéphanie MOORE purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Stéphanie MOORE chose Alpilles

Sunshine, long season for outdoor life, very friendly people, historical attraction of the region and of our specific site, proximity to the centre of Saint Rémy de Provence, the advantage of being in the geographical centre of a region with so many attractions as those offered by Provence,... and most certainly, the challenge: first of the restoration project and now of high-quality innkeeping!

What makes this cottage unique

We speak lots of languages, know the local customs and understand our clients' expectations. The combination of these three factors can be very powerful!

Inn-keeping at PROVENCE PARADISE is a pleasure. Showing our guests 'where it all came from…starting with Roman ruins,… and how it all got taken down and put back together...' is a source of great pride to our entire PROVENCE PARADISE Team. If you have some/lots of spare time, ask us to show you the photos and tell you our tales! There is a story under almost every rock

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comment taken from our ORANGERIE guest book:

Our stay at L'Orangerie has been lovely. A beautiful little cottage in a fantastic spot for exploring. Many thanks to all of you for such a warm welcome and for settling us in so well. Ellie enjoyed using the high chair and baby bath!

We enjoyed our yummy, arrival dinner--thank you-- and it was great to have breakfast provisions for the following day.

We look forward to returning in many years to come to continue to explore this wonderful region.

P.S. We look forward to seeing an Aussie flag flying high on one of your new flag poles. A+S+E

  • 5 of 5

What an exquisite cluster of houses in this very special hamlet just outside of St. Remy. We chose to come in early September to avoid some of the crowds and the summer heat. We were pleased with our choices but most especially we were delighted with the accommodation of L'Orangerie. A perfect place for a couple, retired or honeymoon and everyone in between. The grounds are lovingly cared for and the hospitality incomparable. Everything has been thought of so all you have to do is enjoy it all. William and his staff do an exceptional job of looking after the needs of his guests on a personal basis. You won't be disappointed; we certainly weren't and plan to return.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently returned from a delightful week spent at L'Orangerie at Provence Paradise. Our host, William Moore met us at the Avignon train station and drove us to the cottage where a fabulous lasagne meal and a stocked fridge awaited us, along with an excellent bottle of rose. The cottage, decorated in predominantly yellow tones in Provencal style is charming, and includes all modern amenities. We especially enjoyed the private patio where we could relax in chaises longues, or eat a meal at the outdoor table. The pool and gardens are lovely, and since the weather in August is often over 30 degrees Celsius, we made good use of the pool. William provided us with croissants and pain au chocolat for several mornings and gave us lots of information about village events such as the Feria in mid-August where we saw bulls running through the streets of St. Remy as well as white Camargue horses and their Provencal-costumed riders. The town of St. Remy itself, just a 10 or 15 minute walk from L'Orangerie, is an ideal centre from which to explore many areas of Provence. Not having a car, we were able to visit many interesting places by bus. One village we wanted to visit was not accessible by bus, so William very kindly drove us there one evening. The kindness and generosity of our host and his team, and the beauty and comfort of our surroundings made this holiday the best ever! We just wish that we could have stayed another week.

  • 5 of 5

We booked one week in Provence at Au Moulin Entre Deux Mas Paradise Provence where William Moore the owner and his family was most accommodating. There are several style houses on the property but we chose the Orangerie as it was just two of us. The accommodation is 1 bedroom with a loft bedroom for 1-2 children. There is only 1 full bath. It was fully equipped with kitchen, well stocked refrigerator, loads of dishes and pots, towels, washer/dryer combo. The den and furnishings were comfortable and each piece of furniture was tastefully selected to blend with the Provence theme. The breakfast table looked onto a private garden with more patio chairs and loungers. The bathroom/shower was excellent and a very comfortable bed. The fireplace would be great in winter. The AC was needed in June as it was warm although we had afternoon showers on several days. They deliver the first night welcome dinner with lasagna, salad desert bread and wine. William delivered warm bread the first morning which was also appreciated. Outside you stepped into a paradise, everywhere you turned beautiful flowers, gardens, little streams and a water mill, well maintained pool and adjacent hot tub, a barbeque and more lounge chairs around the pool. They have a social during the week for guests to meet. We viewed the other larger houses and they were of all furnished with beautiful antiques and done to a high standard. We liked the location and the town of St Remy filled with an excellent selection of restaurants, courtyards with fountains, historic sites and great shops.

Owner's Response: We are, indeed, very happy that Gerry and Artie were so satisfied with their stay here at PROVENCE PARADISE! We try very hard to assure a very high level of comfort and safety/well-being. Sounds like we achieved our objective! "Come again and/or send other nice people just like you, Gerry and Artie."

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in l’orangerie for ten nights in May 2008 as part of our honeymoon. For about six months leading up to the trip William and I were in almost daily contact by email with William providing advice and assistance not only about Provence but also in relation to our other locations within France.We were immensely looking forward to our stay and putting a face to ‘William’ and ‘Provence Paradise. To say everything met our expectations would be an understatement. It is easier I think to put a few comments in point form:•The welcome from William was very special complete with a lovely meal, wine, flowers etc•William and his crew maintain a very discreet service, to the point that we hardly saw William for a few days.•Fresh croissants in the morning (or for lunch depending when you wake up) was a real treat.•William can provide a wealth of information and his tip of a wine tour with Francois was greatly received. Spending the day with Francois on his wine tour with a maximum of four other people is a great way to spend a day. Another tip from William that I have never read in any guide book or on the internet saw about 2000 sheep, donkeys, goats etc running down the street as part of a local festival right outside our cottage.•The cottage is beautiful, with all the mod cons yet with the old style Provencal style.•The grounds of the estate are beautiful and very well kept. The pool is very large as is the outdoor spa.•The location is extremely convenient. A ten minute walk into town for market day or just to walk home after too many bottles of wine with lunch or dinner! Otherwise everything you would want to see is within a 45 minute drive in all directions.•William had a dinner party with other guests during our stay and it was a great night, finishing very late in the night/early in the morning depending on your point of view!I could say so much more but you will just need to go and find out for yourself. I am happy to answer any questions that prospective guests may have and I can provide some photos that we took to assist you make a decision.I would finally just add that after months of looking forward to our stay it was very hard to leave. William and I had become email mates before our stay but by the end of our stay it was like leaving family. That is how William treated us ‘as family’

Owner's Response: My PROVENCE PARADISE Team and I had a lot of fun hosting the young MOYLAN's. They honored us by coming all the way from Australia to spend their honeymoon in our "hamlet." Taking good care of them was a pleasure for us. Kind of "doing what we do naturally." Plus, we love to host "Aussies!" We expect Sara and Paddy back someday... in a considerably larger house, with a good number of little MOYLAN's in tow!

  • 5 of 5

We searched the internet for a place to stay in the Provence region of France and came across “Provence Paradise”. We have traveled extensively and without doubt, this was the best place we stayed anywhere. The property is magnificent. The L'Orangerie cottage has an almost unbelievable attention to detail. Very warm, very cozy, great fireplace, nicely equipped kitchen, fresh flowers. Best of all, the refrigerator was fully stocked with all of the necessities. In addition, home made lasagna and salad was waiting for us upon arrival. After a full day of travel, it was nice not to worry about trying to find a grocery store or a restaurant. The next morning, a bag of fresh croissants was hanging on our door handle. Proprietor William Moore was the most gracious, caring host that we have ever encountered. You will feel like you have known him all of your life. He goes out of his way to be helpful. If you seek information about tourist destinations, parking areas, restaurants, William can help. He is multi lingual and can assist almost any traveler in their native language. Early each morning and at the end of the day, he visited us just to ask if we had any needs or if we wanted information that might help to more effectively plan our travels. At the end of our visit, he asked what time we would leave so that he could say goodbye. He is truly one of the most memorable people we have encountered. His staff, Bettina and Olivier, are equally attentive and caring. You might find lodging that would be less expensive but you will never find one that offers so much comfort for what we believe to be a good price. If you have the opportunity to stay at Provence Paradise and L'Orangerie, do not hesitate. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more detail.Bob and Pauline BaillieBatavia,OhioSeptember 29 to October 6, 2007

Owner's Response: What more can we say? It would seem to the naked eye that Bob and Pauline were related to us.... but no, they are part of our new "family of contented guests at Provence Paradise." They helped to invent our new 2008 logo: "Come as friends, leave as family." Not everyone, mind you, ... but the BAILLIE certainly do!
