The house sleeps six people in three bedrooms, one with king size bed (200cm), one with double bed (180cm) and one with two singles (90cm).

The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, two refrigerators with freezer compartments, dishwasher, washing machine, filter and espresso coffee machines, toaster and kettle.  There is an iron and ironing board.  All cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided along with a selection of cookery books.

Local Attractions

At the foot of the Alpilles (a range of sharp peaked hills surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, lavender fields and fruit trees), Saint Rémy de Provence is the perfect place from which to explore the region and to relax and soak up the Provençal way of life whilst sampling its wonderful food and wines. Amongst the town's ancient winding streets you will discover beautifully restored houses, a magnificent church, fountains, shady squares, boutiques, art galleries and numerous restaurants and cafés.

It is an historic town built on one of the oldest archaeological sites in Europe. You can explore the Roman remains of "Glanum" which was founded in the 3rd century BC, and visit the "grands Thermes", the Triumphal Arch, the Temple and the Mausoleum of a true gallo-roman city. The beauty of the countryside and the quality of light have inspired many artists, the most famous being Vincent Van Gogh who produced more than 150 paintings of the surrounding area during his stay there. It is also the birthplace of Nostradamus.

There is a superb market in the centre of town every Wednesday morning and local festivities take place in and around the town throughout the year, particularly during the summer months.

The town is ideally situated for exploring this part of Provence, with the fortified papal city of Avignon just 20 minutes to the north; Arles, the natural wilderness of the Camargue with its famous white horses, bulls and flamingos and sandy beaches beyond to the south-west, Marseille and the beauty of the Calanques to the south-east and the spectacular valley of the Luberon where Peter Mayle lived and wrote his famous novel “A Year in Provence”, and the films "Jean de Florette" and "Manon des Sources" were shot, to the east.

Well worth visiting is the magnificent village and chateau at Les Baux de Provence (classed as one of " Les Plus Beaux Villages de France") perched high in the bauxite rocks of the Alpilles with fantastic views across the region, the fashionable town of Aix en Provence, the Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard dating back to the first century AD, a beautiful place to picnic and go canoeing, and (for the antiques hunters!) the town of L’Isle sur la Sorgue, famous for its 300+ antique shops, weekly fairs, picturesque river and watermills.

Some of the activities in the surrounding area:
Antiques/brocante markets
Canoeing and water sports
Climbing/mountaineering
Cycling
Fishing
Golf
Gliding
Horse riding
Walking
Wine tasting

We would be very pleased to offer more details on any of the above or try to help with anything else of particular interest in the area. We can also provide details of a travel planning specialist who lives in Saint Rémy.
