About Sarah and John Dixon

We are a young English family who have holidayed in Provence for years and liked it so much we bought a home here.

Sarah and John Dixon purchased this house in 2012

Why Sarah and John Dixon chose Provence

The clear blue sky, stars at night, wonderful food and wine produced locally, the friendly people, and so many amenities within the town of St Remy, the amazing history of this area, and above all the climate and lifestyle provides lifetime memories every vacation. This is our family holiday home - we hope you love it as much as we do

What makes this house unique

We love relaxing by the pool, sitting in the shade and reading a book. Wednesday market is a must - fresh produce for the week - we cook at home and enjoy with some local wine of course. In the afternoons we walk into town and enjoy the seasonal activities. We can walk from our home up through the Alpilles; there are so many routes and we admire the landscape as Cezanne and Van Gogh did. We visit the many nearby villages and dine out in so many excellant local eateries - on our return we sit back and relax in our beautiful home and enjoy some local digestifs!

Fantastic house in the beautiful village of St Remy

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic holiday in St Remy. The house was beautiful, plenty of space, really well equipped and furnished to a really high standard. Outside there are two large patios with dinning tables and chairs which overlook the pool. Whether your having dinner watching the stunning sun set or just watching the kids in the pool and gardens, it's a wonderful setting. The pretty village of St Remy is only a walk away and is full of quaint narrow streets with beautiful shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend the house, we've already booked for next year!

A great house in beautiful St Remy

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house positioned in close proximity to St Remy with its great restaurants and shops. Further afield there is much to see and do in the region for days out. The house is set in a quiet location with a lovely garden and pool area to relax in. The covered outdoor dining area is large and airy and is a great spot for a quiet breakfast or more lively dinner. The interior is fitted out to the highest standard and all of the bedrooms and bathrooms are of a good size. Overall I would highly recommend this property and the St Remy area.

Wonderful House in Provence

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family group of 10, ranging in age from 15 to 80. We all loved the house. It is beautiful, comfortable, and full of charm. The layout and space met our needs perfectly. We particularly loved the big kitchen, the dining table under the arbor outside, and the delightful pool. It is in a great area, full of charming villages and towns to explore. We hope to return.

The best in St Remy

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 3 weeks in this beautiful home while enjoying all of the wonderful joys and experiences of Provence. Having rented vacation homes for 30 years we can unequivocally report that this was our best home rental experience. The house is spacious, the kitchen is stupendous and the pool and outdoor area provides an oasis following a day of visiting one of the charming villages of Provence or the Luberon. The location is about as good as it gets, whether you are walking into St Remy, visiting vineyards and wineries, exploring Roman ruins, dining at enjoyable restaurants or driving 10-40 minutes to shop at one of the daily markets in a dozen nearby towns.

When you add to this the ease of working with Sarah you will have a very, very special experience and vacation.

Thanks for an excellent holiday. The Villa was amazing, very comfortable & clean. We made full use of the pool, table tennis table, gas BBQ & outside eating areas, all in all a very relaxing 2 weeks. Lots of places to visit in the area, St Remy was beautiful, with numerous excellent restaurants to choose from. Would definitely recommend this this villa, Sarah was incredibly helpful before we arrived, and Carine the housekeeper on call at all times to help us if we needed it during our stay.

Lovely house in pretty Provencal town

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful week in this lovely house which is a true home-from-home. We received a very friendly welcome to the house and were given a very helpful guided tour so that we knew where everything was and how it all worked. The house is very well organised and equipped and spotlessly clean. The kitchen is spectacular with lots of doors opening to the terrace and pretty garden which enables you to flow from one area to the other seamlessly. The house is very comfortable with wonderful beds and bathrooms and air conditioning throughout. The pool is lovely and we spent many happy hours swimming, dozing, reading, eating and playing table tennis in the garden. When we could bear to tear ourselves away, we ventured to nearby Avignon and the Camargue. We also spent a wonderful morning wandering round the weekly market in St Remy which is an experience not to be missed. The town has some nice restaurants which are walkable to if you fancy stretching your legs before feasting but we also very much enjoyed cooking and eating at the house - there is a fabulous supermarket in the town where you can buy pretty much anything you might want to eat and drink and the quality is superb. There were 3 generations in our party of 5 and all of us had an extremely relaxing and happy holiday. We very much hope to return to this area and this house to enjoy another lovely holiday.
