About David Tudor

We are a couple of a certain age who live in the UK and now we are both retired we spend five months of the year in St. Remy.

Why David Tudor chose Alpilles

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our break at your villa in St. Remy, we had great weather every day and it was nice and peaceful, thanks to S for his help in booking taxis and restaurants, we hope to return again.

Fantastic Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is a fantastic villa set in beautiful gardens with a wonderful pool. We received a very warm welcome from the caretaker, who took his time to show us around. The facilities in the property were excellent, including all the equipment that made our stay comfortable. The air-conditioning in particular was very good. It was a lovely touch to receive a bottle of wine and sparkling water on our arrival.

The swimming pool was well maintained and a good size. There was plenty of poolside furniture and was not overlooked at all. The gardens were delightful, with mature beds and plenty of comfortable seating areas. We enjoyed eating our meals on the front terrace shaded by the wisteria pergola overlooking the gardens.

Parking was good for one car, although a large 4x4 may struggle to get through the narrow gateway (not an issue for our Peugeot 108). The location in a modern gated development was quiet and well placed for walking into St Remy and visiting the local area.

Communication with the owners through the whole booking process was excellent.

We would love to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments , it's always gratifying to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay in the villa and we appreciate how important those first impressions are ! We have a great team looking after the house during our absence. We only rent the villa for a few weeks each season and many of our guests have been returning year after year ,sometimes for extended stays , it's reassuring to hear that we've got the balance right ! We do hope to see you return to the villa and beautiful St Remy in the future.

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.
