About the Property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom With Close-up Views Of Unesco World Heritage Site

Amazing Location!! Charm & intimacy await you in this stylish & beautiful village house offering Provencal elegance at its best. The origins of this lovely townhouse date from the 14th century! Close-up views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Roman Coliseum of Arles. The house was completely renovated in 2013 and is decorated with an eye to charm and authenticity using Provencal colors, antiques and modern amenities.

The living room/dining room is on the ground floor with exposed stone walls, high ceilings, French doors, and the original stone floor. Also, on this floor is a comfortable queen sized sofa bed plus a small bathroom with shower in the alcove. There is a dining table and seating for 6.

The full modern American style kitchen has just been installed in what was the cellar. A true delight for those you love to cook.

From the entry level, steps lead upstairs to the second and third floors with two master bedrooms. Each has a queen bed, large windows, and open bath area with new, large claw-foot bathtubs, sink and separate, enclosed toilet. From these windows there is a striking view of the arena across. Both bedrooms have exposed beams, hard wood floors, stone walls, and elegant Signoria & Jalla bed linens.

There is air conditioning throughout which makes this house especially pleasant in summer months. This is a beautiful and romantic house, cozy and quiet. Free private 1 car exterior parking near the Arles train station.

Arles is famous throughout France and perhaps the world for its Extraordinary Roman heritage sites, Vincent Van Gogh's former yellow house and many areas throughout the city that he painted. The city is equally known for its annual world photography, music & art festivals. This festival is to photography what the Cannes Film Festival is to cinema. It was launched in 1969 by photograph and image enthusiasts, Lucien Clergue, Jean-Maurice Rouquette, Michel Tournier and others. Every year this marks a high point for photographers and marks Arles out as an international capital of photography.

Also, this year famed designer Christian Lacroix, a native of Arles, has organized a world equestrian art festival taking place in July & August, don't miss out. Eco-tourism in the Camargues is right at your feet here too with horse back riding, pink flamingo & other exotic bird watching. This is a magical location.
