Review

This lovely villa on the outskirts of St. Remy is five minutes walk from groceries, and less than ten minutes from the center of town, with great restaurants and shops. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Roman ruins at Glanum, and to the asylum where Van Gogh spent his last months.

We arrived from Paris after a marathon week of museums, walking and sightseeing, with plans to use St. Remy as a base to explore Provence. This house was so comfortable, and felt so much like home that we quickly revised our plans to exploring the lounge chairs in the lovely back yard!

The layout of the house is ideal for two couples. Upstairs is a double bedroom with large en suite, the main floor bedroom/bath are down a hallway, so each couple has complete privacy. The living room and dining room are very comfortable and attractive, and the large kitchen is very well kitted out for cooking. There are two washing machines and an American style dryer, which is a rarity in Europe.

The back yard patio with views of the Alpilles, has a large stone table for outdoor dining, and several comfortable lounge chairs. Olive and lime trees adorn the yard.

For those with a rental car there is a garage in the gated yard.

There is a binder in the house which gives very complete instructions for the house, as well as an extensive listing of local restaurants.

David, the owner of this property is very nice to deal with, and responds promptly to emails. Being able to pay with PayPal is very convenient.

We loved our stay here, and would love to return for a longer visit. Highly recommended!
