St. Remy de Provence farmhouse description

Please check out the additional, great reviews that our guests have posted on our website.

Please check out our early spring promotion at PROVENCE PARADISE --- 'It's On the House' for stays with us in April 2014.

La Tuilerie' at PROVENCE PARADISE is a 17-th century farmhouse, best suited for families and /or for groups of friends. This house sleeps up to 12 people and is part of a cluster of six old, provencal farm houses, with a total capacity for accommodation of up to 37 guests in our 'hamlet' at PROVENCE PARADISE.

In La Tuilerie, we offer one king-size bedroom with en suite toilette, shower and bathtub, plus one bedroom with two double beds and en suite toilette and shower, plus another twin-bedded room, which shares a toilette and shower with another king-size bedroom. Need even more space? For kids, there is an additional kids' sleeping area on the mezzanine level. For additional adults, we can add a very comfortable 'Guest Quarters,' with king-size bedroom and jacuzzi bath, just across the terrace from La Tuilerie. That brings our capacity for very comfortable accommodation to 12+.

A big fireplace is a central focal point in the indoor social area, along with a grand piano and a wet bar. Then, there is a very functional, modern kitchen, with even a provençal 'island' and rotisserie fireplace, with a large family dining table for up to 12 hungry eaters. Just outside, guests enjoy summertime, family life is on the large, outdoor covered terrace, with private use of a barbeque, comfortable seating for cocktails and games, plus a stone dining table seating for everyone. From this terrace, you can see the mill wheel turn.... something very special, indeed.

The large, 7x10 metre pool, family jacuzzi (both of which are heated year-round by large, solar panels hidden on our rooftops... looking straight up at the provencal sunshine!) and summer kitchen are just down an old stone stairway from this old farmhouse, as are the family game areas and sun/shade furniture for guests. La Tuilerie is a very private, family living area, with an old Roman wall and tall shrubs and trees, to assure privacy from the outside.

We rent this authentic, provençal farmhouse, so full of light, color and history, for week-long periods throughout the year, starting generally on Friday's.

Restoration of this 17-th century property involved two years of hard work, to create full-comfort indoor and outdoor living area which covers about 400 square metres. A true, labor of love! All the modern conveniences our guests would expect from a five -star property are brought together under one tiled roof. Walls are so thick that there is no need for summertime air conditioning. Be lulled to sleep by the cascade of water in the gardens and by the slow turning of the old mill wheel. Something magic!

Please have a quick look at our PROVENCE PARADISE website.

Property Location
'La Tuilerie at PROVENCE PARADISE' is the largest property in our restored 'hamlet,' on a hill just above the old town centre of Saint Remy de Provence. We are well within walking distance of all activities and shops,

                      The beaches of Les-Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer and Cassis are less than an hour away by car, For Greco-Roman ruins, we have some of the finest, The Glanum site is about 10 minutes away, The amphitheatre and arenas of Arles (Roman capital of the entire region) only 30 minutes away, plus you have Les Beaux, Avignon and Orange for museums, architecture, and interesting, quaint streets, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue for antiques, plus all of the seasonal nightlife of St Remy itself. On a Wednesday, the village comes to life as the weekly market rools into town. There is a great atmosphere which descents on our old town centre. There are excellent bargains to be found, both to stock the shelves of your house at PROVENCE PARADISE, as well as to take home for those you left behind to water the plants and to walk the dog! Saint Rémy has something for everyone! Popular day-trips from our 'hamlet' include Arles with its Roman ruins, Avignon and the Papal Palace, the Luberon, the beaches of the Mediterranean.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: As a family, we discovered Saint Rémy de Provence, traveling from our home of 15 years in the northeastern part of France. We were looking for sunshine, friendly people, a new 'culture,'... and a challenging 'retirement project.' We came, stayed for a couple of days, then weeks... and now we hope we are here forever! Why move? The sun shines 330 out of 365 days a year, we can be outside (working and playing) in the garden about 10 months of the year, and the PROVENCE PARADISE 'hamlet' we have built is a place where our children and our grandchildren enjoy coming to visit. After all, that was the objective. Indeed, we are very proud of this 'hamlet,' created from what was 'one big pile of old rocks' only six years ago. A real, 6.5/7 day, 16/24 hour 'labor of love. La Tuilerie is the biggest of six long-abandoned family homes, which rose up again from pile of old rocks! Mission accomplished! AND, while accomplishing our family 'hamlet' goal, we discovered this whole new world of international 'innkeeping!' Year-around, thanks at first to VRBO and now often to 'word-of-mouth,' we receive guests from everywhere in the world. Some just come to relax by the wintertime fireplaces or by the summertime pool. Others want to discover the Roman ruins right here under our feet, to go off to the markets, the beaches, flea markets, auctions, vinyards, golf courses, even nearby ski slopes. All the same things that we also like to do; so we are good at giving suggestions! Never a dull moment at PROVENCE PARADISE... Yes, there is time for a siesta every once in awhile! After all, this is 'paradise' and we are 'retired.' We take this opportunity to invite you to come to experience for yourselves the fruit of our labor in the restoration of these 17-th century provençal buildings.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Remy de Provence:
                      Sunshine, long season for outdoor life, very friendly people, historical attraction of the region and of our specific site, proximity to the centre of Saint Rémy de Provence, the advantage of being in the geographical centre of a region with so many attractions as those offered by Provence,... and most certainly, the challenge: first of the restoration project and now of high-quality innkeeping! We learn something new every day. Discover 14th century town walls. Then, look for the different, historic entries to the city, try any one of them as a starting point for your discovery of the shops, fountains, picturesque squares and historic buildings 'intra muros.' Remember to check out the menus posted outside of the many restaurants, too! Then, be sure to come back on Wednesday, when the whole village comes to life as the Provencal market rolls into town, quiet streets and squares become a thriving marketplace. There are still some bargains! Start out by stocking your kitchen shelves for your stay at Provence Paradise. Anyway, there is a bit of everything and everybody at the market! And, what you and your family can learn!: The village of St. Remy stands on one of the oldest archaeological finds in Europe. The origins are Gallo-Roman from the 7th century BC until the 2nd century AD, at which time the Roman city of Glanum was founded. This was the origin of today's St. Remy de Provence. Our walls at Provence Paradise were built with stone original cut for Roman buildings and statuary. Then, there are the paintings of Van Gogh. You can follow the artist's path through the town and the nearby countryside, to view things still from his perspective...little has changed! Then it's time to venture away from St. Remy in the direction of Arles--the 'Rome of the North,' or Avignon--'City of the Popes,' or Orange, with its Roman theatre

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      We began our self-catering operations in the summer of 2006. Reflecting on the Guests' Comments available for review on our website the key benefits to staying with us at PROVENCE PARADISE can be summarized as follows: *We speak lots of languages, know the local customs and understand our clients' expectations. The combination of these three factors can be very powerful! *We provide high-end accommodation of reliable quality. Our modus operendi is 'discreet presence,' meaning we are there in a flash if you need us for directions or tourist information, for solving a problem, for a trip to the doctor and/or to the pharmacy, for finding lost luggage, and even for going to fetch those who get lost, etc. *We cater well to two distinct clientèle...young family groups and adult travelers... and know how to keep the two separate and at a safe distance during what amounts to different travel 'seasons' throughout the year. *We greet our guests personally, with true and honest enthusiasm, glad to see them here; anxious to have them dig into the dinner+drinks we have ready upon arrival, at the end of their long day of travel; prepared to offer advice on where to go/what to do, taking into account the specific dimensions of the family. And, we only say: 'please come again and/or send us other nice folks like you,' if we really mean it! In fact, that’s most of the time and about half of our guests reserve for next year before they even leave this year ... so our 'repeat visit' rate is nearly 70 percent. *And finally, for us, inn-keeping at PROVENCE PARADISE is a pleasure. Showing our guests 'where it all came from…starting with Roman ruins,… and how it all got taken down and put back together...' is a source of great pride to our entire PROVENCE PARADISE Team. If you have some/lots of spare time, ask us to show you the photos and tell you our tales! There is a story under almost every rock!
