Our maison de village is conveniently located in the historic center of town in St. Remy de Provence. Centre-ville is a pedestrian-friendly area where all of the stores, restaurants and daily activities take place. No need to drive into town...everything is just around the corner from our home!
Parts of our townhouse date back to the 14th century. It features renovated exposed stone walls, wood beams, ceramic tile floors, a new kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and a sensational rooftop terrace. Some of the ancient stone walls in our home do slowly release a calcium dust so you may note areas of white deposits. This is normal and safe...it is not dirt dust.
Our home is a four story townhouse on a quiet, quaint street in the center of the ancient village.
-The first floor entry has a wonderful sitting room perfect for reading and relaxing.
-The second story has a bedroom with a queen bed, along with a newly remodeled spa-like bathroom including a large walk in shower.
-The third story features a fully renovated stylish Italian kitchen and a cozy and elegant family room.
-The fourth story provides all of the beauty of Provence with a relaxing sun room looking onto a private outdoor terrace with amazing views of other village homes, the neighboring museum and Les Alpilles. It is ideal for relaxation day and night, as well as for aperitifs and meals!
Living in centre-ville, we are ideally situated around the corner from the Hotel de Ville, where all activities, celebrations and markets take place. Boulangeries, patisseries, restaurants, art galleries and stores specializing in Provencal products are located all around just steps from our home.
St. Remy, a village of about 10,000 people, is unique in its history and proximity to the many other jewels of Provence. It is located amongst the ancient Roman ruins of Glanum and boasts the famous psychiatric hospital at which Vincent Van Gogh produced some of his most splendid masterpieces. Nostradamus was born and lived just a few blocks from our home. Outdoor hiking and other activities abound in Les Apilles, the mountains that border our village. Vineyards and olive groves are just minutes away.
We are located about 20 minutes by car from Arles, Avignon, and Les Baux de Provence. An hour or less are Aix-en-Provence, the Luberon mountains (think Peter Mayle novels), the Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape A.O.C wine region, as well as Marseille, Nimes, Montpelier and the Carmargue. The Carmargue is the enchanting, breathtaking 'Wild West' of France that also provides you with multiple opportunities to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea.
Chantal is our amazing caretaker and she can provide wonderful concierge service such as trip planning, etc. for a reasonable fee. Guests may touch base with her for more details.

beautifully decorated provencal home in the center of town with terrace & updated kitchen/bath
We loved this property right in the heart of beautiful St. Remy. It was exactly what we were looking for to truly appreciate Provence -- a provencal home with all high end amenities (new kitchen and bath). The location is fabulous on a little tiny street in the center of town, the home is beautifully decorated, and we spent more than one evening on the terrace under the stars. Hard to beat. We miss it already!
Lovely apartment in the center of a lovely village.
This was the perfect apartment for a relaxing stay! We were wrapping up a busy vacation and chose St Remy and this apartment for some quiet time. The village was perfect - plenty to do but not too busy. And the apartment was so good! Stone, brick, wood, a wonderful rooftop deck. We had a great time. I think the only things to be aware of are that (1) there are many stairs in the apartment; there are a total of four levels including the roof, and (2) there is no air conditioning, which is not typically and issue but could be during the hotter times. They do have ample fans however, and shutters, good windows, and thick curtains. We had a marvelous time, thank you!
You'll Never Want To Leave!
We arrived and were greeted by Chantal who was great in helping us find the home. After giving
us a tour and showing us all the amenities, she answered our questions and showed us where we could park
our car (a short walk). The home is a Provence delight. Having four floors, and we used them all. It was quite
warm while we were there, but they supply you with large standing fans which made the home very comfortable,
and were very much appreciated. The kitchen has everything you need if you decided to cook and stay in. The shower was amazing, and the bed very comfortable. One of the highlights of this home is its location. In the heart of the old village, it is an ideal location for shopping during the day and dinner by night. Make sure you're there for the Wednesday Market. Amazing, and right there for you to enjoy. The roof top patio was great. Being so warm when we were there it was great for breakfast in the morning, and wine, cheese and bread in the evening. If you enjoy the stars, that's the place to be. Karen and Jeff were great to work with, and we thank them for sharing their Saint Remy home.
Quintessential Provencal Experience
My husband and I had the most wonderful time at this gorgeous property in St. Remy. It is fully restored with top of the line Luxurious Bathroom and fully equipped modern Kitchen.
The location is the best you could get. Being in town really made you feel like a local. We met our neighbors who had houses next door and also made new friends at the nearby café.
The Las Casa Gym is the friendliest that my husband had ever encountered on holiday.
Also the market on Wednesday is absolutely the best, not to be missed.
Charming home in the perfect location
We spent a week in this lovely home. Charming, comfortable, all the amenities we needed, and we were able to walk everywhere. Chantal was so helpful. Her English is perfect. We really felt like we had the total experience of living in a village in Provence.
Perfect location! Beautiful Townhouse.
I knew it was going to be nice but we were so blown away by the beauty of the place that it was hard to leave. The location could not be more perfect and Chantal was such a great local asset. Do stop by her museum. It was great and she was so warm and helpful.
Our days were spent shopping in the local shops, learning about Van Gogh, biking the through the area (twice), taking excursions to the surrounding towns including Aix, Arles & Cassis, and simply enjoying the townhouse. It was so easy to explore the area from the wonderfully central location.
The townhouse itself was very, very clean, well stocked, charming and really felt like home, not just a rental. We loved having wine and sampling different cheese on the terrace.
Jeff & Karen, you have a fabulous place is what is now one of our favorite destinations.
Not suitable for children due to some staircases being open and without adequate railings
