Excellent larger house with pool in Arles
Our stay at this property was excellent. We were one couple and two singles, and the setup of the bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect for us -- not always easy to find in rentals in this area. The house is eclectic, beautiful and clean throughout. Great furniture and lots of areas to gather or sit alone to get some work done or read. The highlight was the pool, which is enormous, and was exceptionally clean.
The location seemed strange at first -- there are apartments on either side of the house, which initially concerned us, but once inside the house, you are never aware that there are others around you. The entry to the driveway is a bit awkward, but ultimately, the location is actually extremely convenient to food shopping and to town if you have a car.
If you want a full-size house with a pool, but need to be very close to Arles, this is probably the best you can do, particularly for the very reasonable cost. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
We loved it!
Pool and garden were great with lots of spots to enjoy sun or shade. Inside was fun and well-equipped. There were some nice local food shops a short walk away and a big supermarket a 5-10 minute drive away. Catherine was helpful, easy to contact and quick to reply.
Even better than the pictures
This house was fantastic. The owners are wonderful people who care about their house and customers. They gave us a great review of the town and surrounding areas. There was some amenities for us to start with so we didn't have to rush out and get our coffee and tea right away. In our group were two middle aged adults, one elderly person with mobility issues and two children - 8 and 11 years old. The stairs were a little difficult for the elderly person. Even with that issue, we all enjoyed the house. We did a little less sight seeing than otherwise would have done because everybody enjoyed the backyard so much. The house was clean and all the amenities were as described. The temperature dropped unexpectedly during our stay and one night was a bit cold. I emailed the owners and they were out the next day with extra blankets. I recommend this house to everyone except for people that cannot do stairs. The town is marvelous too. We walked and got fresh food everyday from the local shops that were a 5 minute walk away. It was a 5-10 minute drive into downtown area of Arles. The only real problem was that we had to leave.
Thanks to this lovely family. They all took care of the house very well. Nice cleaning was done at this end. Sorry for the stairs. I highly recommend this family they are wonderfull and very consensus. Come back when ever you want.
Wonderful house in Provence
The house is located right outside the center of Arles (if you run, you can easily take a run into the center of Arles, as it is only a few km away). The house is 100% as described, and the owners are exceptional. They could not have been more helpful or knowledgable about the area. Within 25 minutes driving you will find vineyards, the beach, Les Baux, and more charming villages/towns than you can imagine. The pool is great, the outside space is very conducive to dinners outside/ evenings with a bottle of wine. We were there with a small (21 months) child, and she loved it all. There is a butcher and fruit/vegetable shop within walking distance and larger grocery stores are just a few km driving distance. It was truly an enjoyable place to visit.
lovely house with privacy
This is house is aboslutely recommended with very nice and friendly owners. We stayed 10 days with our family of 5 and had a great time. Everything is very clean, nicely decorated and an excellent service. We had everything we need, to mention some examples: coffe, beddings, towels, spices and a lot of other surprises. We had also a great contact to the owners, thank you both it was a pleasure to be there. With kind regartds Fam. Ludwig.
Excellent séjour en famille
Nous avions choisi cette villa car la décoration et le jardin nous avaient vraiment séduits sur les photos... Nous n'avons pas été déçus !! Une décoration incroyable, un jardin et une piscine de toute beauté, un très grand confort, des équipements ' bonus' (baby-foot, balançoire, trampoline...) qui apportent aux urbains que nous sommes un caractère exceptionnel à ce séjour ...sans oublier ni les petites attentions de nos hôtes pour démarrer le séjour sans stress, ni les tortues qui ont animé nos journées pour le plus grand plaisir des enfants et des plus grands !! L'emplacement est pratique pour visiter la région et proche de tous les commerces du quotidien. Un écrin de verdure et de beauté au milieu de la ville, et de son effervescence. Nous serons très heureux de revenir à la villa des roses ! Pour l' heure, nous remontons avec de superbes images et souvenirs de notre séjour....
Votre commentaire nous fait chaud au coeur!!!
Un grand merci à vous tous, vous avez été formidable d'avoir pris grand soin de mes tortues et de mon intérieur. On voit que la maison à était bien entretenue lors de votre séjour, je vous en remercie chaleureusement. Je recommande vivement ces hôtes et n'hésiterai pas une minute à les recevoir à nouveau.
