Perks for the Parents

This smart Provençal residence is walking distance from the center of beautiful Saint-Rémy-de-Provence with shops, art galleries, restaurants, and wonderful walks into the Alpilles mountains. It sleeps 6. Close to the village yet offering peace and privacy with a fully fenced lawned garden, a sun deck and loungers, and its own swimming pool. For laid back days at home there’s a shaded alfresco dining/BBQ area, and the house is fully airconditioned for keeping cool on warmer days. The bustling village atmosphere of Saint Rémy de Provence will appeal to all the family with cobbled streets, laid back restaurants and pretty town squares where parents can enjoy a coffee while the kids play. For the outdoorsy there are hiking and biking trails from the doorstep, as well as kayaking a 30-minute drive away. The pretty beaches of the south coast can be reached in an hour by car.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will soon feel at home at this colorful villa with its warm, bright interiors and garden to play in. The pool is just the right size for splash abouts, and the manicured lawns are perfect for picnics. The local village is one of the most vibrant in the region, and is close enough for independent teens to walk to. It has a playground, tennis courts, a skate park and many shops – ideal for picking up local produce for a BBQ back at home. Kids can play safely in the narrow streets, and there are a number of shady squares with space to run around. For adventurous kids there are plenty of activities on offer, from horse riding, cooking classes and climbing to local biking trails into the mountains. A highchair, baby toys and a baby bath can be provided on request.

About the Location

The residence is located in charming Saint-Rémy-de-Provence at the foothills of the Alpilles mountains. It is an excellent location for biking and walking with many trails close by. The proximity to the village means that guests can access the center on foot in about 20 minutes, or 5 minutes by car. St-Rémy is a historic market town with lots of restaurants, bakeries, cafes, bars and a bustling atmosphere. Other major towns close by include Arles (35 minutes), Avignon (35 minutes) and Nîmes (50 minutes). There are many small and attractive villages in the area including Eygalières and the historic fortress town of Les Baux. The nearest beach is in Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, capital of the Camargue, 1 hour away by car while the pretty coastal areas of Bandol and Cassis are a 1.5 hour drive. The closest international airport is Marseilles, about a 50-minute drive; Avignon is a 35-minute drive away with a train station serving TGV trains from Paris.

Style Notes

Contemporary Provençal. Traditional rustic features are blended with modern styling to create a bright, welcoming home away from home. Outside, terracotta tiling and pretty wooden shutters are set off by warm orange tones, smartly decked terraces and a sleek stone pool offering the perfect relaxation spot. Elegance continues inside with a smart, modern kitchen and colorful brushed velvet seating. Calming gray and beige hues offer a serene backdrop throughout, uplifted by injections of patterned wallpaper, colorful textiles and playful contemporary art. We love the sheltered alfresco dining room with its sleek wood floor, chic pendant lighting, garden views and barbecue, providing the perfect ingredients for a fun family gathering.

Artists, sunshine and good living

Twelve miles south of Avignon, this beautiful Provençal village embodies all that is great about the area; art, good living and sunshine. Vincent Van Gogh lived here for a time; it’s also the birthplace of Nostradamus. Explore the Roman ruins nearby after browsing chocolate shops and playing in rivers beside flower-filled meadows.
