About the Property
2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Village Cottage On Quiet Lane, Terrace, Parking
The property was completely renovated in 2013 with new wiring, wi-fi , plumbing, plaster, painting, heating and full air conditioning. New bathrooms and kitchen were designed and installed by a well known english designer who now lives locally.
The ground floor comprises the new kitchen, half bath, large dining area for 4 plus additional comfortable seating to read or relax. There is an adjacent sitting room with satellite tv that can be closed off for a quiet space. French doors open onto a secluded walled terrace with dining table and chairs for 4 plus a lounger. The terrace is bordered by plantings including roses, fragrant jasmine and hydrangea. The kitchen has a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven, coffee machine and toaster plus a wash machine/dryer. The front of the house , opening off the kitchen, has a fenced patio for morning coffee among the flowering planters.
Up the curved stairway are two bedrooms; one with a queen bed and the second with a queen bed that divides into 2 singles if desired. There is a new bathroom with very large shower, toilet and large sink with lots of shelf and drawer space for guests.
The property has an attached garage converted from the original stables. It holds a medium sized car. Large vehicles can be parked a short distance away at the end of the lane.
St Remy de Provence is a magical place that people find they return to year after year. It is at the same time ancient and imbued with modern french chic. It was home to Glanum, founded by the Greeks in the 7th century bc. It later became an important roman settlement. The ruins and museum are fascinating. It was a refuge for Vincent van Gogh who completed many of his famous works depicting the area while in a sanatorium in St Remy. Nearby are the towns of Arles, with its magnificent roman amphitheater and museum, Avignon with its spectacular papal palace and gardens from the 14th century, and the nature reserves of the camargue with its flocks of flamingos and herds of the famous white Camargue horses. Modern day St Remy hosts one of the largest outdoor markets in provence on wednesday mornings as well as many events showcasing the Carmargue cowboys known as guardians riding their white houses and herding the Carmargue black bulls through the streets following the original wall that encircled the town. Wonderful day trips can be taken to the Pont du Gard with its river and amazingly intact roman aqueduct, the famous vineyards of nearby Chateauneuf du Pape and the antique centre of isle sur le Sorgue to name just a few of the nearby attractions.
