About Julien

Hello !

My wife Lucie and I, are the happy owner of this great villa where we spend only a very few time each year. We are living and working in Saint Rémy, Lucie as a web marketing advisor, and me as a real estate agent specialized in seasonal rental, that is why we are taking great care of our guests ! We are very aware of suggestions to keep offering the best experience !

Julien purchased this house in 2012

Why Julien chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

Saint Rémy de Provence is THE village of the Alpilles area. Of course, others are beautiful also, and you have to visit them, but St Rémy is the most popular with lots of restaurants and shops, and even a great authentic and provencal atmosphere, little village places full of charm, and still quiet (except during wednesday morning as it is a famous and very well known provencal market).

Saint Rémy is also ideal as a basis to visit Provence, close by the TGV train station of Avignon (20 minutes) that offer direct line to Paris in 2H30, St rémy ios also 45 minutes from Marseille international airport.

What makes this house unique

The great points :

Before offering this villa for rent, we used to live in for about a complete year, and we have experienced this very quiet surrounding, while it is very close to town. We love its garden plenty of charm and we maintain it at its best level. There is a cherry tree plenty of fruits during May-begining of June, an abricot tree for July, and a figue tree for September, as well as a vigne in September/October also !

The house is very well built with a perfect thermal insulation (double insulated walls, 30cm of glass wool over head, double glazed windows..) so we do not suffer at all from warmth. Also, there is an air conditioning system in the living room and the master bedroom for the warmest days .

We do improve the house and its equipments all year long, and pay great attention to its maintenance. Everything is working well.

Lovely family home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week here in October. Lots to do in the surrounding areas and the owners were very helpful at sending through information when we needed it. Beds very comfortable and living room very warm and cosy. Made good use of the table tennis and bicycles. The weather was gloriously sunny although the heated pool was a little cold to use for long. Thank you Julien for letting us stay in your lovely home, hopefully we will be back soon!

Wonderful, casual, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of two couples who completely loved staying at this house! It was close to St. Remy, but far enough away to be totally private. Our house contact, Jenelle, was just a gem... warm, adorable, & very informative about places to see & restaurants to eat. The garden, the pool & the alfresco dining area were especially lovely... Overall, a great house to enjoy inside & out... very comfortable furnishings, well-stocked kitchen, bicycles, & even a ping pong table. We'd highly recommend staying here!! Absolutely wonderful!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the charm, the restaurants & the market place in the town of St. Remy as well as the many adventures we experienced in the surrounding towns & villages. Great vacation experience!!

Lovely Holiday House for Families.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Saint-Remy with family visiting from Australia (4 adults & 3 children aged under 7). The house and garden are very family friendly and we appreciated the inclusion of baby equipment. The house has a lovely home away from home feel to it and the (fenced) pool was great! We found some excellent restaurants in Saint-Remy and it was great to be able to walk into the village. Jenelle was super helpful on check in and throughout the week. Thanks Jenelle and Julien for a great stay!

St Remy Provence

  • 5 of 5

Truly a wonderful place to stay in Provence. The accommodations are excellent with everything you might need to satisfy all vacation needs. Add to this the location the fact that you can park your car at home and walk into town and enjoy an excellent meal at one of many fine restaurants located in St Remy. My favorite treat was taking a ten minute walk to the bakery and bringing back breakfast.

Most importantly, are Julien and his wonderful assistant Jenelle, who responding within minutes of any need we had during our stay. When one doesn't speak French, even easy tasks can be somewhat difficult- such as operating TV,stereo, ect.

Additionally, having a washer, dryer and heated pool makes this villa most comfortable.

If you want the perfect place to stay in southern France, with ability to visit Avignon, Arles, Le Baux, and many other wonderful day trips, this is the place to stay!

I gave this property five stars because it deserves it.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The villa has everything you require for a great holiday. It is spacious, clean and well equipped. Nice quiet location and a 10 minute stroll into the town centre. Janelle was very helpful in getting us settled in and letting us know of things to do. Would stay again.
