A stones throw from the famous Bull ring is this lovely traditional 3 room house with terrace. This house is beautifully equipped, with air conditioning etc. It is tucked away down a small side street. Every museum, gallery,Roman site, restaurant or shop is easily reached on foot. The brief tour of Arles by our host on arrival was invaluable. We loved it.
We stayed three nights at Bernard and Jo's amazing house in Arles and we wished we could have stayed at week longer. They set the bar VERY high for any other vacation rentals! The house itself is beautiful and they have thought of everything so you lack for nothing. It is in a perfect location, right in the heart of the historic centre, and amazingly even has secure parking. Bernard met us and settled us in, located us on the map, gave us dining ideas, then gave us a wonderful walking tour of the area so that we could get our bearings. The kitchen was stocked with essentials and more - milk, butter, coffee, tea, homemade palmiers (Merci, Jo), oranges and lemons, farm eggs, homemade olive oil, homemade marmalade, vases of fresh rosemary,.....amazing! And the town of Arles itself is amazing, with so much history, friendly people and really great food.
Merci Bernard et Jo. Votre maison est tellement special et nous esperons revenir vous voir un jour. Et nous esperons peut-etre vous voir un jour au Méxique ou en Nouvelle Écosse. Merci pour tout!
My husband & I spent a month in this fabulous home in the shadow of the Arena in old Arles. It includes a well-stocked and equipped kitchen on the ground floor, a master bedroom (with a super comfortable queen bed) and full bath on the first floor, a sitting room with a futon for guests and half bath on the second floor opening onto a lovely covered terrace (with its own wet bar), and a wine cellar in the basement stocked with local wines (pay as you consume). Air-conditioning and heat on each level, and there is a garage included, big enough for any car!! What more could you want for a short or long stay in this lovely area?!
Bernard & Jo are wonderful hosts, generous with their time and guidance for touring Provence. We found Arles to be a great base for visiting Avignon, Marseille, St Remy, Les Baux, Aix,and the Camargue. But Arles itself is worth many days of exploring with its Roman ruins, and lovely shops.
This is our second time staying here and we will definitely be back!
Everything about our stay was perfect. Bernard picked us up from the station and even gave us a tour of the town, with plenty of tips for sightseeing. The house was spacious, spotless and very comfortable, including a private terrace with fabulous rooftop views. Special thanks to Jo for the homemade biscuits, homegrown tomatoes and jam, which were all delicious. An excellent base for day trips in beautiful Provence.
