Lovely house in great location
This is a lovely typical Provence house tastefully decorated and very well located for St Remy. Ideal for 2 families.
The owners were very helpful when I called them on the phone (but not very responsive to email).
The only issue I had was that the house is not where it is shown on the map on the HomeAway website (in fact it seemed to me that for all houses near St Remy they just show the same map) and when I called HomeAway they said they did not have an address for it. However when I called the owner I was able to resolve this (using some basic French).

We stayed at the house for two weeks and found the place very charming. I do want to point out that there is only air conditioning in one bedroom on the third floor. If you are going in the summer look out it gets pretty warm without ac. Also the house is close to a road that cars drive very fast at. A 15 min walk into town. Also there are barking dogs right next door and can be very annoying at times. The kitchen is nice with all the cooking materials you would need. The bath room situation for guests can be difficult but master bedroom has nice large bathroom. The house was nice and clean from apperances but owners should really do some major cleaning out cabinets and closets, lots of spiders. Also the house isnt where it is on the vrbo site and took a long time for the owners to let us know where it is.
Would have been nice if owners would recommend restaurants in St. Remy.
We are sorry to note that, contrary to many vacationers, you did not fully appreciate this charming house that has a real “soul”. It is the authentic refuge of an artist and an author/journalist that love to spend time at what they call their “paradise”. And we truly regret that your stay wasn’t as you had hoped. The house is perfectly kept up, in keeping with the spirit of the countryside and Provence.
As for the air-conditioning, we haven’t gone further with it for ecological reasons. The third (top) floor bedroom – the one with many beds, usually for the children – is the only room that gets very warm mid-summer. But we take your criticism into account.
Concerning the car noise, they pass by on the small road basically in the morning and the evening, and no bedroom has its window on that side. Essentially used by local residents, it is not a main thoroughfare.
The neighbors’ dog, which just arrived this summer, has been moved after our complaints. But we would like to point out once again that the Provence where Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Pagnol lived is still the country, not an antiseptic environment.
All said, we are truly surprised to see your comments that are so completely the opposite of what we usually hear.
