The second floor has a large living area with American style fully and newly equipped kitchen with French windows leading onto large south facing terrace with barbecue and access to the garden with its essential pool in summer, and onto the romantic old and quiet street on the other side. The top floor hosts a Master bedroom with Kingsize bed, bathroom en-suite and stunning view to the Roman ruins in the centre of town. Ideal for families or couples looking for convenient access to activities as well as a peaceful and comfortable place to relax.

Maison de charme au cœur de saint Rémy

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans une maison spacieuse bien équipée dotée d'une piscine privative bien appréciée en été pour se rafraîchir .la proximité du cœur de la ville permet de se rendre à pied sur les places animées ( marchés nocturnes des créateurs des animations estivales : concert...) Un accueil chaleureux par Tim et Jenny est à souligner.

The perfect place to stay in St. Remy!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this townhouse and highly recommend it for a stay in St. Remy. It is large, clean, well appointed and has a well stocked kitchen. It was unusually hot when we were there so the air conditioning in the upstairs bedroom was wonderful and the pool was so refreshing. There are three levels to the townhouse and the stairs are cement so if you have small children you should be aware of that. The bottom floor has two bedrooms but it was damp down there so we just used the main floor and the upstairs which worked perfect for our family of four. The location could not be more perfect and beautiful. Everything you need is right outside your door yet it is VERY quiet in the townhouse. We loved St. Remy and when we come back will choose to stay here again! Tim and Jenny are wonderful and were very responsive to all of our questions!

Randy and Kathy Seiberling

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place in which to base our stay in Provence. We got into town in the midst of a music festival making it difficult to find the property. We gave Tim a call and he was very helpful in helping us get our bearings.

The house was clean and spacious and had all the tools we needed to prepare a few meals for ourselves and was close to many, many restaurants, cafes and shops.

I believe we would readily stay here again and again.

Meraviglioso Capodanno a St.Remy de Provence

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso 12 lietissimi giorni di vacanza, in questa bella casa soleggiata ubicata nel centro del paese, dalla quale potevamo muoverci a piedi per passeggiare e fare compere, nelle varie boutiques e negozi di specialità alimentari di cui Saint Remy è ben provvista.

L’accoglienza di Tim e Jenny è stata cordiale e premurosa, utilissima anche per individuare un comodo parcheggio per la nostra automobile.

Relax e serenità sono stati gli ingredienti di questa vacanza, nel corso della quale abbiamo potuto effettuare brevi gite culturali al vicinissimo, antico borgo medioevale di Les Baux, con una vista sublime sulla pianura sottostante, ad Arles, Gordes, Cassis, spingendoci a capodanno sino nella Camargue.

Soddisfatti sono stati anche i nostri due cagnolini, Khyro e Teo che, seppure abituati a viaggiare costantemente, adattandosi ai vari hotels, hanno trovato una casa che hanno immediatamente assimilato come loro abituale dimora.

Grazie di tutto, ritorneremo sicuramente!

Owner's Response: We spent 12 wonderful holiday’s day, in this beautiful sunny house located in the center of the village. We could walk around and go shopping in the various boutiques and specialty food stores which St.Remy is well equipped. The hospitality of Tim and Jenny was friendly and attentive, very useful also to locate a convenient parking for our car. Relax and serenity were the ingredients of this holiday, during which we were able to make short trips to the close cultural, ancient medieval village of Les Baux, with a sublime view of the plains below, Arles, Gordes, Cassis, bringing us on new year day in the Camargue. Satisfied were even our two little dogs, which although used to travel constantly (adapting themselves to various hotels) found a house they immediately assimilated as their usual residence. Thank you very much for everything, we’ll surely come back again! Thanks Cinzia & Mirco, we really loved having you stay and we would welcome you back anytime.

Great Place To Experience St Remy

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-week stay at Le Auvent town house. The upstairs bedroom/sitting room and the first floor eating/living area are very spacious, and the ground floor bedrooms and laundry/shower room are comfortable and efficient, easily accommodating the guests we had for our final week. Everything is modern, clean and attractive. We didn’t use the small swimming pool because the weather was cool in October, but we are sure it would be a great place to relax in the summer.

The location of the town house is superb, a very short and pleasant walk to the many shops and restaurants, two museums, weekly market, and other attractions of central St Remy. There are a Spar grocery store and several bakeries a three minute walk away. We found parking available on Rue du Parage or nearby Blvd Gambetta every day except during the fall festival, when we used car parks a few minutes walk from the house. We felt at all times that the house and the nearby streets were secure. We also found the location to be an excellent base from which to explore nearby Les Baux, Arles, Tarascon, and Avignon, as well as the Luberon and the rest of Provence.

We would recommend Le Auvent to anyone who would like to experience St Remy from the comfort of a spacious home.

The Alpilles is an area of outstanding natural beauty famous for its views from Les Baux and picturesque scenery including olive tree groves and vineyards. Historic St Remy is renowned for its typical Provencal way of life, long warm Summers and short crisp Winters and is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Stroll along bustling streets or simply watch the world go by in one the many cafes. Market day is every Wednesday and should not be missed. The Sanatorium where Vincent van Gogh spent nearly 2 years is a short walk from the centre as is Glanum, well known site of the Roman ruins. An all year long Provencal busy agenda combined with a sunny climate and a splendid natural environment will make you enjoy your stay in this very central and quiet town dwelling! An hour drive from Marseille and 50 mins to Aix en Provence. An hour drive from The Camargue, Uzes or Nimes. 1/2 hour drive from Avignon, Arles or Tarrascon. 10 minutes from les Baux de Provence and other lovely villages such as Maussane, Mouries or Eygalieres.
