  • Charming

    "We spent a week here in late August 2012, and were lucky enough to come back for a few days last May. It is without a doubt one of the most effortlessly relaxing spots one could find in the world. The surrounding region borders on the excessive in its charms: fantastic nature for walks; lovely towns for coffee and food; perfect views to compliment a bottle of wine. The houses themselves are thoughtfully furnished, the pool is lovely an the garden is well kept. Most importantly, the entire experience is hassle free. Everything is so agreeable in fact, we're looking forward to visiting for a late summer's holiday again this year."

  • fantastic

    "The location was excellent, just a short walk into town for a bakery in the morning or lunch or dinner in the evening. The house its self was beyond expectations. It was very clean, well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Our host, Maylis, was very good with suggestions and directions for entertainments for our stay. She was nearby and available for questions and concerns. St, Remy seems small on the map buthas so much to offer. Restaurants, shopping, the Wednesday market, galleries and much more. Do not miss the Abbe just outside of town where Van Gogh stayed. The cloisters are beautiful and they do art therapy there for patients and have a nice exhibition. MZost of all just let yourself wonder the streets and alleys. This is a great walking town and a fantastic base for visiting Arles. Les Baux, the Camargue. Luberon villages, Pont du Gard, the Valensole plain of Lavender fields and the Gorge du Verdon. Our party of six adults over 60 look foreward to visiting Maylis again."

  • Great apartment

    "Hi traveler. We spent 3 nights in this lovely apartment recently. We loved it and would return. As per other comments, the 1 1/2 story climb may not be for a person with stair issues but we were helped with our luggage so that made it easier. Great location in St Germain. 2 subway lines nearby. Walk to Notre Dame, New Pont (bridge). Plenty of restaurants on the street or nearby. Best Italian food I ever had was on this street. Groceries 10 minute walk. Pastries 2 minutes. Provided with Nespresso coffee Pods and bread .. so nice. also mentioned .. noisy talkers on street in evening but close the window and you will be OK. Safe neighbourhood. Great Bed, TV, shower, stove and supplies to cook. Price was right as far as I am concerned. Sleeps 4 with couch, I believe, so kids would not be an issue. Enjoy the "hood""

  • Peille apartment

    "We enjoyed our 3-night stay at Deni's apartment in this beautiful and quaint village. The accommodations were comfortable and well equipped. It made a cozy and convenient location from which to visit Nice, Monaco and Eze. Parking was available in the town lot and we were able to drive in a bit closer for loading and unloading the car. Denis did not let his little English and our little French become a barrier to our communication, as he sought out a friend from the village to help translate! We had the pleasure of having dinner at a village restaurant run by Remy. He was a warm, interesting, amiable guy who took a genuine interest in our family. We also availed ourselves of the local boulangerie. The village itself was full of photo opportunities and historical interest. Finally, the views up and down the mountain were spectacular."
