Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose St. Remy de Provence:
We were seeking a holiday home in a village setting. Villa Nova is just 3 minutes walk to the local boulangerie and 5 minutes from the main 'Place de la Rebublique' and 'Eglise St. Martin'. St Remy's 'Office de Tourisme' is a leisurely 10 minutes walk. It is also within easy distance of those wonderful and well known places in Provence, Arles, Avignon, Marseilles, and the Luberon. Ski slopes at Gap and beach at Les Saints Maries de la Mer are within driving distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Beautiful weather, secure private house with parking, located just 5 minutes walk from St. Remy's historic centre. Fresh local produce from the weekly market (Wednesdays); over 20 boulangeries to choose from; the 'Potager' across from the Church; convenient shopping. Concerts at Orange and Avignon, browsing in the antique shops of L'isle Sur La Sorgue and Loumarin; Organ recitals in Eglise St Martin; and Saturday evening mass at St Paul-de-Mausole.
