About the property

Splendid Villa in St Remy de Provence, Bouches du Rhone, France - Peaceful Location Close to the Centre

Detached luxury villa with a huge private swimming pool in a quiet residential area of St-Remy-de-Provence overlooked by Les Alpilles and within easy walking distance to the historic centre and the numerous cafes, bars, restaurants and art galleries. This recently constructed ‘Bastide’ is in traditional Provencal style and materials and is set in its own private garden. St Remy is well known for its links with Van Gogh and is the ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside and villages of Les Alpilles. Local activities include swimming, tennis, walking, cycling, horse riding, golf, and mountain biking. Nearby attractions include the Camargue, the hill village of Les Baux de Provence and the historic towns of Avignon, Arles and Aix en Provence. Local wine, olive oil, cheese and vegetables are sold at the typical provencal market held every Wednesday. St Remy is a 20 minute drive from the TGV station at Avignon and less than an hour from Nimes and Marseilles airports.

About The Owner

We live in Luxembourg and try to spend as much time as possible in St Rémy.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

We had spent several years renting a house in St Rémy for our summer holidays and had fallen in love with the area - the wonderfully scenic countryside, the scent of the lavender, pine and rosemary in summer, the medieval hill villages, the many local attractions and places of interest, the wine and the marvelous food and the incredible Alpilles. We loved the area so much that we decided to buy our own home and love to share this marvelous part of the world with our friends and family. Even if the house is less than a kilometer from the center of St Rémy it is in a very quiet and tranquil location; a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life and a wonderful place to unwind!

What makes this villa unique

We have a wonderful huge swimming pool (14m x 7m) with saline filtration (no chlorine) which makes it very easy to spend a lot of time relaxing on the property and it is of course a perfect place to be for the children. We have recently made a 120sqm terrace with natural stones (travertine) and granite in the driveway and garage.There is a huge range of activities and attractions in the local area: the coast is about an hour away (boat trips to visit Les Calanques between Cassis and Marseille are wonderful), and horse riding, kayaking, cycling, hiking, golf and wine tasting are all local activities which we enjoy. In addition you can just walk from the house up to the marvellous Alpilles - or to the center of St Rémy.

Highly recommended provence vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and it did not disappoint. The Villa is in a great location, has a great pool and great accommodation all round. It is a perfect setting for a truly relaxing family holiday. Our friends who joined us for a long weekend last year thought so too as they booked it for themselves next year. We have stayed in numerous holiday villas in France and elsewhere and this is definitely the best.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we visit this property, and we are impressed by the significant improvements and upgrades that have been made. The new huge terrace in beautiful natural stone as well as significant improvements inside have lifted the standard to a 5+ star accommodation. The pool is of course the main attraction, but we really appreciate how the owners keep the property clean and develop it further. We will certainly recommend it to others and we hope we can return soon for another peaceful Provence holiday, but yet with the possibility to walk to the charming and lively city centre.

Beaches within 50 mins drive. St. Maries de la Mer, Salin de Giraud, Cassis, etc.


50 minutes to Nimes and Marseille airport and 20 minutes to the Eurostar in Avignon.

Car is not required as walking distance from town but recommended in that there is much to visit in the area (Baux de Provence etc).


St. Rémy (walking distance - approx 1 km).

Avignon, Arles, the Luberon villages, the Camargue and Cassis are all within 1 hour's drive.

Further Details:

There are loads of wonderful restaurants in the old centre and over a dozen bakeries/patisseries within walking distance. Try a different croissant every day! There is a fantastic cheese shop, fishmongers, several butchers and many more fresh fruit and veg shops. And, of course great local wines available at great local prices. The shops all open early then close at 12.30 opening again at 3.30pm until 7.30pm. This house is ideal for foodies! Stroll in to town to buy up fresh seasonal ingredients before each meal and have long leisurely lunches and dinners. Punctuated by siestas and a dip in your pool. Never need to worry about drinking and driving as everything is on your door step
