Perfect in every way !

  • 5 of 5

We had a super 2 week stay in this delightful villa.

The Villa is fully equipped , spotlessly clean ,and in a nice quiet residential area a short walk from the centre of St Remy.

We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the pool on those days the temperature got into the mid 30s and found the air conditioning very useful !

St Remy itself is a lovely little town with great restaurants and a superb market on a Wednesday.

We had a lot of interesting days out to fascinating places such as Avignon , Arles , Pont du Gard . The Carmargue , Les Baux , Gordes and Roussillon ....but also a few lazy ones by the pool with a good book and a glass of wine.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone thinking of staying in the region , and look forward to returning to it again ourselves.

We find the air con is appreciated during the hot weather.

Wonderful villa in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second summer stay at Judith and Steve's gorgeous villa in St Remy with amazing views of the Alpilles. The villa is perfect with every mod con, Wi-Fi and pool towels etc. provided. It is always spotlessly clean when we arrive and Catherine and Denis are on hand for questions, tips, day trip recommendations etc. Catherine will always try to get you in as soon as she can on changeover day too. Denis comes to clean the pool mid-stay (2 weeks) and that's really appreciated. It's a 15 minute stroll into town depending on your fitness where there are dozens of restaurants and bars and different markets, fetes etc. going on. St Remy is a perfect base for trips to the Camargue, Marseilles, Chateau Neuf du Pape, the Pont de Gard etc. Can't recommend this villa and the lovely people who own and manage it highly enough - they really do make sure you have a wonderful time - we will be back!

Fantastic villa in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

I knew the minute that I stepped into this villa that we were going to have a fantastic holiday and within 24 hours I was wishing we had booked 2 weeks instead of 1! The villa is exactly as shown in the listing description - spotlessly cleaned, superbly maintained and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Catherine and Dennis welcomed us warmly and although we didn't see them again until we left, we had the feeling that nothing would have been too much trouble had we needed to contact them during the week.

St Remy was a great centre for exploring the area. Within an hour's drive we visited lovely Luberon villages, Roman Arles, Avignon and the Camargue (beautiful flamingoes). A favourite trip was kayaking down the river to the Pont du Gard. In our time in St Remy we also watched Andy Murray win Wimbledon and saw the Tour de France pass St Remy, literally at the end of the road ! We enjoyed pool time, family mealtimes on the lovely terrace and ate out at some of the great choice of St Remy restaurants.

Overall a fabulous holiday and we have returned home looking forward to going back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in our villa and that you were able to see so much of the area during your stay as well as relaxing by the pool. St Remy has a good choice of restaurants as an alternative to meals on the patio. It's a pleasure to hear you are considering going back.
