About Sallie Jeeves

I bought this old 1 star (10 bed ) hotel and spent 3 years restoring the property back to its 18th century origins. Furnishing it with possessions from 20 years in Provence. It has been featured in several European Interior magazines.

Sallie Jeeves purchased this house in 2007

Why Sallie Jeeves chose Fontvieille

I had always stayed here in the past when it was a hotel and the chance to buy it came along just as I had sold a previous property in the nearby village of Paradou. It has been a labour of love and now it is a tranquil home form home for me and my family who live in London.

Gorgeous French home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is impeccably decorated with French antiques but at the same time very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, 2French presses, and wine glasses -- the only thing missing was a big pot for pasta. The house easily accomodated myself and 3 friends, with each of us having our own bedroom with a private bath. You will definitely need a car to see the surrounding countryside. Wifi wasn't very strong but there are many places in town with free wifi. Loved it!!

A attractive comfortable " De Provence " property.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed an excellent holiday in this fine property that is situated in a quiet location within the attractive village of Fontvieille. Its two patio areas allow all day access to the normally brilliant Provence sunshine.

The Village has a good heart beat with several restaurants and bars together with markets two days a week.

The location is excellently placed for exploring the many attractive villages and towns of the region.

We are happy to recommend Maison Laetitia for all wishing to enjoy the delights of Provence.

Lovely stay with the family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at Maison Laetitia. We spent 4 weeks and loved it since it is an authentic Provencal experience. The house is even nicer than the pictures and has a super nice decoration.

We enjoyed the different areas to have lunch dinner and breakfast and as well to chill.

Since our stay was long we had Nadine, the house cleaning lady, visit us twice a week and she is absolutely recommendable.

Thank you Sallie and Jamie for your hospitality and for making us feel at home even before arriving.

Delivers on all the promises

  • 4 of 5

We were not at all disappointed. This property fully lives up to the promise of the pictures and reviews. Quintessentially French , lots of ambience, chic, and (importantly) pleasantly cool in 35 degrees of perpetual sunshine

The village is quite large with many restaurants and good shops and facilities. It is a real village, and not a tourist honey trap .

We consider ourselves very lucky to have uncovered this gem.

Beautifully restored grand 18th Century town house

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful base for visiting Arles and the Alpilles. The house is secluded but set in the heart of a charming town with excellent local provisions easily available, good small restaurants and even an artistic cinema! A lavender strewn wedding was in progress in the square as we arrived that set the tone. The house and rooftop terrace were a delightful, cool retreat at the end of each day. The number and variety of comfortable sitting and bedrooms made for a most relaxed holiday.

Beautiful, charming home

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful old house in a charming village well located for day trips to many places, such as Arles, St Remy, and Avignon. It is beautifully decorated, with comfortable seating and beds. There is a modern and well equipped kitchen, with a table and chairs, as well as a dining room with a larger table. Living room is large, with high ceilings and comfortable seating. There are four "en suite" bathrooms, although only two of those has a stand up shower. The fourth floor bathroom is very small and cramped with a tiny shower. There is no restroom on main floor. The staircase is a beautiful, very steep, typically French spiral-style, going up three stories. However, the doors to two of the bedrooms open up right into the middle of the spiral, with no landing. The steepness of the staircase and the placement of the doors to those two bedrooms should be noted by anyone who has any sort of mobility issue or young children. There were no smoke alarms or sprinklers in the house, of particular concern in a very old four story house. There was no parking other than what one could find on the very narrow streets--sometimes several blocks away. The washer-dryer advertised was accessible only through a trap door on the floor of one of the terraces. Both terraces were were lovely, however, and we had a wonderful visit!
