Saint Rémy has a golf course, as well as, tennis courts and riding stables. You can also go fishing or gliding, and there are endless places to walk or cycle through the hills and discover for yourself, unspoiled, tucked away areas.
Glanum, just outside Saint Rémy, is one of the most important Roman archeological sites in Provence. Founded 300 BC, it reveals a civilization that influences life here even today.
You can see thermal baths, an avenue of houses, the temple and the natural spring, and the remains of a Gallo-Roman town dating 30-10 BC. On the road leaving Glanum, are the ancient Arc de Triomphe and Les Antiquities, the gateway to Glanum, standing as they have since that time. Close by is St Paul de Mausole, where Van Gogh spent his last days.
From there it is only a short drive through the hills to Les Beaux, an ancient village perched high on the rocks, once one of the most celebrated and brilliant of the troubadour courts of love in the Middle Ages, now romantically ghostly.
The villa is also at the centre of the Baux de Provence and Côteaux d'Aix vineyards and not far from Château Neuf du Pape.
It is important to note that Airports Marseille International is only eighty kilometres, Avignon is twenty kilometres, car rental is available. Road Paris/Saint Rémy is six hours, Rail Avignon (TGV Paris/Avigno) is two hours and forty-five minutes and twenty kilometres, rental car is available.

We loved everything about this house and it was everything we hoped. It's location is so convenient to the center of town. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The house is very spacious with lots of room both inside and out to relax and unwind. The attention to details in the decoration and furnishings was greatly appreciated and the house itself is stocked with everything you could need or want to cook a fabulous meal. The house manager was attentive and available to us for all of our needs. I would recommend this house to any group traveling to beautiful Provence!
"Exquisite provencal home walking distance to downtown"
We absolutely loved this house. The design is beautiful, it is airy and full of light and windows, decorated with antiques, every piece of furniture is chosen to contribute to the French ambiance. We rented bikes in passion vélo, cycled through the country side (drivers are very respectul), we walked to Saint Rémy every morning to buy fresh croissants and pain au chocolat. The garden is as charming as the house. We recommend this house to travellers interested in enjoying authentic comfortable lodgings close to village center, either interested in travelling and getting to know the area, playing golf, writing a book, or relaxing in the villa and taking leisurely promenades to town. Thank you Frank for having created such a paradise!
Perfect In Every Way
Our party of two adult couples recently spent a week in this charming home and were 100 percent satisfied. This is our third St. Remy-de-Provence area home that we've rented, and it was definitely our favorite.
The house is a beautifully-converted stone building which preserves the old-world charm, but also has been updated with modern amenities, including gourmet kitchen appliances, a clothes washer (and dryer!), and air conditioning in the bedrooms, which allowed our group to sleep soundly and comfortably. The country French decor is just right, and we felt as if we were invited guests rather than being in a rental property, as the furnishings and artwork were beautiful. The owners provided ample storage for all our clothing.
The garden and pool were very private and well maintained. We spent most of our free time swimming, or relaxing in one of several well-shaded areas. Cooking at home was easy and enjoyable, and all meals were eaten outside at one of the two outdoor tables. We actually ended up sacrificing several car excursions in order to spend additional time at the house.
The location of the house was just outside St. Remy's center. It was a 15-20 minute walk to town, where parking is often a challenge. We discovered a slightly longer walk to town along a quiet canal which avoids any busy traffic.
We wish we could have stayed longer, and definitely hope the house will still be available for our next trip to St. Remy.
My Week in Provence
A friend and I spent a week in April in this very pretty, roomy and well-decorated villa. It is much more attractive when you are physically there than the pictures you see on the internet. It is a beautiful place, very clean, with all the amenities you need and it is on a quiet street. The trip to town is a very short one but a car is recommended as the street going into town is sometimes busy and there is no sidewalk except when you are almost there.
We flew to Paris and spent a few nights there before taking a train to Avignon and renting the car. I would get a GPS if you are not familiar with the area. We did not have one and got lost a few times. The French we asked for help with directions were very nice even though we didn't know the language and most of them didn't know English. A few times they helped by drawing pictures for us!
The owner of the Villa (Frank) was very helpful when we were planning the trip. The book in the house gives recommendations for restaurants and other places to see. Every restaurant in St. Remy we visited was very good. One day we drove to the architectural site and museum at Glanum, just a few miles away, Another day we drove to Chateauneuf du Pape in the Rhone wine region about an hour away. It is a beautiful village and well worth the drive. Another place to visit that is close by is Les Baux in the Alpilles mountains. I suggest you go early one week day because it can get very crowded and parking is limited. We also saw the Pont du Gard which is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge new Remoulins. It is a magnificent site. An important day to know about is St. Remy market day on Wednesday -- not to be missed!
Be sure to read the book in the house on the history of the villa and the information on where the owners purchased the artwork, furniture and decorative pieces. They are from all over the world.
I have recommended this property to some of my friends who are always looking for VRBO properties. I look forward to returning some day!
A charming place that makes you feel right at home
The owners of this wonderfully old, renovated house have clearly thought of everything to make one's stay in Provence just perfect. The house was nicely decorated and comfortable, with many places to sit and spend any down time you may have while not visiting Provence's many charming villages and towns. The outside is delightfully landscaped so, weather permitting (i.e. no Mistral); it's great to sit out by the pool or until the vine-covered terrace to relax. Same is true inside the sun-lit living room. And the kitchen is fully equipped for serious cooking--and eating. And the three bedrooms are spacious and nicely separated, making it an easy place for three couples to stay without running over each other all the time.
It's definitely a place we'd stay again...and St. Remy is a lovely, lively town to make a base to explore many parts of Provence. Not to be missed there is its Weds. market and Joel Durand's chocolate shop--as well as St. Paul Asylum where Van Gogh stayed (make sure to go through the gift shop up the stairs to see his room; some friends missed that, alas).
The house is about a 20 minute walk from town and the shortest route is on a busy road with little room for pedestrians, so a car is helpful (especially for a quick morning trip to buy croissants at the local boulangerie!).
Keeps getting better...
Each time(since 2006) we visit this lovely house in St. Remy it just gets better. The comfort and esthetics remain exceptional and the location superb. It is centrally located to all the attractions of Provence and of course the charming town of St. Remy with all it's historical and cultural offerings.
I love opening my window and shutters every morning to the beautiful light and garden no matter what the season. This is the perfect indoor outdoor house with two areas to eat outside (I love one for breakfast and the other by the pool for lunches and dinners).
This brings me to the kitchen a wonderful place to cook up the lovely food from the village farmer's market and indulge in the local fare. If you are not in the mood to cook there are several great restaurants in St. Remy and nearby villages. The house has a great book of places to help you choose one for dinner.
I love this house, the food, the town and the people who are always so great. The best vacation rental
for all the right reasons. The owners have thought of everything!
Most favorite thing is coming back to this home base and relaxing after a day of sightseeing.
Can't wait to go back again.
