This beautiful rambling family house, with a pool and lawns surrounding it is, in an idyllic part of Provence and suits a family of up to 11 + 1. With five bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, plus another bedroom set away from the family rooms, suitable for an au pair or teenager, it is a great residence for a large family or couple of families holidaying together. It’s very kid-friendly, filled with toys and books and with expansive lawns for ball games and rowdy play. The luminous town of St Remy de Provence is a 15-minute drive away and many of the region’s most attractive towns and villages are under an hour’s drive. Stay here for a true Provencal experience: eating fresh local food outdoors on the terrace, visiting landscapes and flower fields made famous by Van Gogh and exploring pretty villages with golden stone houses and boutique bakeries.

  • Plenty of toys, books and games for playing with, indoor and out

We consider ourselves a small family of 6 ! Riccardo works in services in Italy and I ( Loica) live in Provence with our 4 boys ( from 5 to 10 years old)... We chose homeschooling for the freedom it gives us ( as well as for the easy life and so much fun that goes with it!!! ), so we are exploring as often as we can! We love reading, stories, discovering new cultures and dancing all over!!!! Being able to be at home while traveling is an incredible luxury, it allows to get into the area, the secrets, the tricks and other curiosities way faster than any thing else... That's why Kid & Coe is so obvious when planning a trip! And with children it really changes everything.

We had a lovely week here in October 2016 with my sister's family. The house is amazing, the kid's loved the pool, the trampoline, and the kids books and toys to play with. It is just 500m outside Maillane, which has a couple of good boulangerie and very good restaurants. Both restaurants were great with the children (we had 5 in our party, with ages ranged from 2 to 9). The nearest supermarche is an Intermarche in Saint Remy, which is about 15mins drive. The hosts are very helpful too. One tip: get the actual address from your hosts before heading there: the map link that we were sent was wrong. Wish we had stayed longer, as the house was perfect for us and there is so much to do in the area. We will be back!

The house was beautiful and was exactly as shown online, so lovely! It was easy to get the key and Caroline was available with any questions that we had. The location was super convenient for day trips around the area. The only small problem that we encountered was that the pool cover did not work during our stay. We would absolutely stay here again, fantastic!

Overall we had a very nice week at the house, we were 6 adults and 3 children. The house is spacious, quite kids friendly as kids have a lot of space to play around. The village of Maillane can be walked to in 20 min but car is necessary. There are some toys, trampoline and swimming pool to keep the kids busy.

We stayed a week at the St Gabriel Residence. We absolutely love our stay. The house is comfortable and very spacious. Swimming pool is lovely and a lot of amazing village very close to. The cleaner who comes every day to tidy up the house was very helpful and lovely. We asked her to do some babysitting. The only bad point that I will say was to find the house, we spent 2 hours to look for it after travelling a long way. I would definitely recommend to rent this house.

Nous avons passé de très belles vacances dans cette maison. Nous y avons trouvé un accueil chaleureux, une maison très bien située, un cadre agréable. Pour préparer le voyage, nous avons pu compter sur les propriétaires.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Provence

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.
