Property description

“...then I go out into the night to paint the stars...”
(Vincent van Gogh in his letter to his beloved brother Theo - September 1888)

The Roman monuments are still here to be be seen in St Remy, together with its winding ancient streets, the house where Nostradamus was born, and the Hospital of St Paul de Mausole where a poor and desperate Dutch artist found refuge for a year from May of 1889.

In this way, it came to be St Remy and Les Alpilles which he spread before us under the blazing sky of “Starry Night”.

Very many things have changed, but the night sky, the sun and the colours of Provence have not, and St Remy is now a charming and bustling small town with interesting shops, a multiplicity of restaurants: and perfectly placed for the sights of Provence.

The Luberon and its lavender fields are to the North, as is Avignon, with the medieval Palais des Papes. The Camargue - with its white horses and black bulls and the walled Crusader city of Aigues Mortes - is to the South. The great Cistercian abbey of Senanque is to the East, and Arles with its Roman amphitheatre and Vincent’s chrome yellow “Cafe Terrace” (still there) is to the West.

Villanova itself is an elegant courtyard development of 15 town houses adjacent to the original Belle Epoque Villa, and a short stroll from the centre of St Remy.

There is private gated parking and a beautiful central courtyard garden.

The house (over 100 square metres) is approached firstly across the garden courtyard and then a small shaded private garden, and offers a tiled open plan ground floor living and dining area.

There is Corbusier and Heals furniture, a downstairs WC, and a well equipped kitchen with Siemens cooker, washer and dryer; and fridge freezer with ice-maker; Alessi and Dualit utensils and a mix of Villeroy & Boch and Williams Sonoma crockery.

Overall style? Once described as “Laurel Canyon meets Provence”.

The first floor (US 'second' floor) offers a large double bedroom with extensive wardrobe space and an adjacent shower room, and a further small(er) double bedroom which can be available (if required) by arrangement.

The house is a great space for just a couple and best suited to (at most) 4/5 people, and the two large bedrooms are the rooms normally made up for guests.

The top floor offers a master suite with oak four post bed, ensuite bathroom, a seating area with sofa and desk, and a private terrace with table and seating and a view to Les Alpilles.

There is air conditioning on all floors, satellite (only free to air) TV, CD/DVD player, iPod/iPhone player and free wifi internet access.

The linens and towels are changed on a weekly basis.

Welcome to Provence, to St Remy and to Villanova !
