About the property

1 Bedroom stone house in the centre of town

The house dating from 1750 has beamed ceilings, a winding stone staircase and exposed stone walls and quirky niches. lounge with Sat TV, WiFi, DVD, large stone fireplace, spacious kitchen/dining room with fridge, cooker/stove and dining table with seating for 5.

New Shower room fully tiled with walk in shower and new WC, completed May 2016. Bedroom with feature 4 poster double bed and pretty painted wardrobe.

The house is across from a small leafy square. The ground floor comprises entrance into living room with open stone fireplace, leading to hallway and bathroom. On through is the spacious kitchen/diner. Stone staircase leads to bedroom with 4 poster, 2 chests of drawers and wardrobe.

To the rear of the bedroom is a door leading to outside space suitable for drying towels/clothes.

Free parking is available close to the house.

St Remy, birthplace of Nostradamus and home to Vincent Van Gogh while he was in the sanatorium here. This was the psychiatric hospital where VanGogh committed himself after he cut his own ear off. Here, he did more than 100 pieces of art, many of which were his most important and most famous paintings. This is a 'must-see' for the area. It’s a self-guided walking tour with placards in English.

You can see the actual walls and gardens in the spots that inspired Van Gogh. There are placards that show a copy of his painting, in the spot where he stood to paint it. This allows you to compare the painting to how the exact spot looks today. For many spots, the similarities are amazing.

About Tim & Jenny Pope

Tim & Jenny Pope. We both love Provence and particularly this area around the Alpilles, We spent 16 years in Germany working and then back to England for 12 years to Somerset which was wonderful in many ways but then we decided to buy some property in Provence. We are currently developing a house in nearby Eyragues. We also manage/ rent other properties in St Remy de Provence.

Tim & Jenny Pope purchased this house in 2009

Why Tim & Jenny Pope chose Alpilles

We both fell in love with this house immediately and loved it's character and charm. It is ideal for visitors to St Remy who want 1 bedroom and a homely feel. Many couples want the independence and privacy of a house instead of a multi-national hotel with generic rooms etc.

What makes this house unique

Right in the historic center of St Remy just a stones throw away from the shops, cafes & restaurants. No need to drive out to eat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Second time in St Remy and first time in this beautiful house. It's our home in St Remy!!! We will return!!

Quaint little house a stones throw from every where. Exactly as described. Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Tim and Jenny were amazing hosts. They were always available to give advice. We loved their house - it is exactly as described and less than a minutes walk from the shops, restaurant and supermarket. Free parking is available close by.

This is the perfect base for a holiday in Provence. Look no further. This is the place to stay

Special time in the heart of Saint Remy

  • 4 of 5

What a quirky place to stay in. The whole place was well appointed with everything you could need. The stairs up to the master bedroom could be an issue for some if you were less able. The location for us, was perfect. We could open the shutters in the morning and let the sun stream in and feel we were back in time. Yet you could walk out in minutes be in the bustling little town. A very comfortable stay in a peaceful quiet property. Thanks Tim for picking us up in Avignon and dropping us back. Thanks Jenny for the great welcome and familiarization of the place. Well done guys

St Remy de Provence

  • 4 of 5

Location in St Remy was great. Property was clean, comfortable and well kept. Having the bathroom downstairs from the bedroom was a bit of a bother, but not much one can do with a historic property. Tim and Jenny, the hosts, were helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed touring the St Remy area, especially Carrieres de Lumieres near Les Baux - don't miss it.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week and, as other reviewers have said, this is a delightful location, great hosts, and charming house. We enjoyed the fireplace and décor, and truly appreciated Tim's and Jenny's day trip suggestions (5 different days of sight-seeing). Although the city was doing some construction in the open area adjoining the house, it was not a problem and the end result will be wonderful for future renters, a fountain and open space in the old city. Nearby restaurants are great, and we had fresh bakery items every day for breakfast. Saint Remy is a wonderful location from which to explore Provence without the need to stay in a different place each night. All in all, many thanks to Tim and Jenny for making it all possible.

Lovely old and interesting house in centre of St Remy de Provence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Tim and Jenny's lovely house for 2 weeks over Christmas with Ned our black lab. The house was just as described but even more quirky and welcoming than we had hoped. It was so nice to be so close to the centre of St Remy (which is of course touristy) but really enjoyable and a great base to see Provence where we hadn't been for many years. We did a lot of walking in the Alpilles with Ned which was much better than we had hoped but we did have the most beautiful weather for the two weeks. Thank you Tim and Jenny for a really lovely and unusual house to stay in and best wishes for the New Year.

Janet and Richard

Old Provence with villages and towns nestling either side of the Alpilles mountains. Warm summers long warm Autumns. Cold crisp short winters. Colourful Springtime, the scene of many of Van Goghs works. Points of interest include Arles with its Roman Amphitheatre, Avignon with its Palace of the Popes. Pont de Gard with its original Roman aquaduct. Les Baux a hilltop village with stunning views of the Camargue and a Fort with working siege machines. Bike rentals in Town, rates on application.

How about a day out driving through the Provence and the Luberon in a chauffeur driven Classic Jaguar Sovereign,options include a tour & lunch outside under shady trees at a vineyard overlooking Mount Ventoux. Or perhaps wine tasting in the Alpilles followed by lunch at Le Bistro du Paradou (made famous in Peter Mayle's 'A year in Provence') Cost €35 per hour. If you want to do something special during your stay then please contact Tim on either db4boy@aol.com or 0033 685697307 for more details.
