About Savin Colette

We are currently retired, but we have found a job that we really love: hosting visitors. We are at the disposal of our clients.

Savin Colette purchased this house in 2012

Why Savin Colette chose Alpilles

We purchased this property in April 2012, close to Saint Etienne du Gres, because of its charm, commodities and for being just 6 minutes away from Saint Rémy de Provence, in a quiet location.

What makes this house unique

The first storey has a magnificent view over the Alpilles

The gardens with trees are lovely

There are no close neighbours

Very well designed house

Completely restored

With new furniture and layout

Entirely equipped

There are plenty of modern and antique objects, as well as books (large library)

It is the ideal place for family vacations, groups of friends or couples

It is ideally located, as Saint Rémy de Provence was rated as the best city to live by Forbes magazine

It is surrounded by some important cities as Aix en Provence, Avingnon, Arles (rated as a World Heritage Site) and its museum, Marseille, 2013 European culture capital, and its MuCEM, le Luberon (Opède, Ménerbe, Goult, Bonnieux and Gordes, its jewel).

It is also a gastronomic region with many starred chefs (Cabre d'Or, Baumanière, Marc de Passario, ReineSamut) and many others.

Water and mountain activities 80 km away

Cultural activities: Festivals of Avignon and La Roque-d'Anthéron 'Rencontres de la photo' in Arles, music and theatre festivals in Vaison la Romaine, the festival of Orange, and of course Christmas.

It is the ideal place for filling your holiday with activities, with all the calm, charm and comfort of la Bastide des Oliviers.

Fantastic base for a big group to enjoy Pricence

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, particularly as one couple had a small baby. They also have is suggestions for local festivals and markets through the week. There are several great spaces in doors and out for a group to eat and hang out. There is a lovely big pool as well. Very convenient for day trips to western Provence. I would recommend the property and it exceeded our expectations.

Well-equipped villa in a pretty Provençal village

  • 5 of 5

La Bastide des Oliviers is a lovely, very well equipped villa in the village of St Etienne du Gres, at the western end of Provence and close to a plethora of interesting and charming places to visit. We visited from the UK as a family of five and absolutely loved spending our two week holiday there. Mr and Mrs Savin were wonderful hosts, providing us with invaluable advice on the attractions in the vicinity as well as lots of local produce to eat. They even cooked us a welcome meal on our arrival day! We could not have wished for anything more.

The pool area at the rear of the house is quiet and secluded and the pool itself is a lovely size for family fun. We spent many happy afternoons there after visiting such places as Avignon (the evening light show in the Palais de Papes is truly spectacular), Arles (the Roman amphitheatre hosted a fabulous demonstration of Carmargue life), and canoeing under the famous Pont du Gard. Nearby towns such as St Remy de Provence, Gordes and Les Baux de Provence were fascinating to wander around, and on every day there seemed to be a market close to the villa in which we could linger...

The villa is beautifully decorated and the inside spaces are as comfortable as those outside. There is every convenience that a visitor can wish for, including a fantastically stocked kitchen, super fast Wifi and air conditioning to make the warm, sultry nights more enjoyable. Each morning before breakfast we even used the villa's bikes to cycle into the nearby village to buy fresh breads.

Overall we can heartily recommend this property as a base to spend both a relaxing and action-packed holiday, according to whatever you wish for. We barely scratched the surface of all that was available for us to do in the area and we will definitely be back!

Quand la réalité est superieur de la rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons discuté pendant un an un voyage de rêve pour le célébration de notre 50ieme anniversaire de mariage-en compagnie de notre fille, son mari et leurs trois enfants(10,8 et 3 ans et demi). Nous avons choisi trois semaines (fin juin-juillet 2016) à La Bastide des Oliviers en Provence. Dès le moment de notre arrivé et de la réception de Madame Savin la réalité était meilleur que la rêve.

La maison est parfaite-avec une conception magnifique avec beaucoup d' espace pour tout le monde , très bien équipée et sans restrictions pour les enfants. La piscine est plus grandes que montrer dans les photos et les domaines pour dîner et se bronzer à coté de la piscine sont merveilleux.

Situé dans une petite village, la maison est une véritable oasis de calme mais au même moment c 'est seulement un très court distance par voiture à Arles, Avignon, St Rémy de Provence, Les Baux et Mausanne- et chaque dans leurs propre droit présente une experience inoubliable.

La maison est approx 400 metres du centre du village, au pied, ou on se trouve la boulangerie, la boucherie, la pharmacie et autres bons magasins. En plus il y a un grand supermarché approx cinq minutes par voiture de la maison.

La maison est équipée avec des bicyclettes, table de tennis, les raquets pour Tennis (au club locale) et, naturellement , une espace assez spéciale pour la pétanque!

La gentillesse, courtoisie et charme de Madame Colette et Monsieur Christian défi déscription et ils ont fait notre experience plus grand qu' imaginable et on ne peut pas leurs remercie suffisamment.

Nous avons quitté la maison, et Madame Colette et Monsieur Christian , avec des coeurs lourdes en exprimant nos voeux de retourner.

3 bedrooms are air-conditioned. Each bedroom has its own safe.

The 50 sq.m. house has a fireplace, a satellite flat screen TV, DVD player, IFI (outdoor) video player.

A well-equipped traditional kitchen, with direct access to the outdoor dining area, and a second dining area next to the pool.

The charming village is only 300 m away from the house, and there you will find all services. Just 6 minutes away from Saint Rémy de Provence.

The region is blessed with its location, its climate, the magnificent Alpilles nature park, the nearby Camargues, Le Luberon (Godes, Ménerbe, BonnieuxRousillon, )

Do not forget gastronomy! (there are plenty of starred chefs in the region)

In short, it is a pleasure to live in this region.
