Lovely house in St Remy

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week staying at this property as a family of 4 (children 13 & 9). Really lovely house, gardens and pool. House was very well equipped and local contact (Simon) very helpful and efficient on arrival/departure.

St Remy is beautiful to explore and there are lots of other locations nearby to visit.

St Remy and this property are recommended for a great holiday.

From the Owner

We have visited this area of France for many years and love the light and scents of provence, it never fails to lift our spirits. The location of the villa allows us to walk down to the centre to be involved in the hustle and bustle of the town or just relax around the pool and potter in the garden, depending on our mood. If feeling energetic we dust off the bicycles and ride around the country lanes up to the foot of the Alpilles.

From the Owner

We found the town to be a central point to all sorts of places of interest and activities, the town holds lots of fetes and specialist events, there are lots of vineyards and olive oil producers to visit in the local area. We chose this villa because of the large garden and the privacy it affords us. The garden is still evolving and we love planning and bringing our vision ever closer to completion.
