We rented a cottage for a week at Domaine de Laforest. The place is located in the countryside on a large propriety minutes away from the village of Fontveille (where there's a public market on monday and friday mornings) and a short drive from places like Arles, St-Remy de Provence, Les Baux de Provence, Ste-Marie-de-la-Mer. Our cottage was clean, large , modern and well equiped. Bedrooms and bathroom were on the 2nd floor. The place is very quiet and relaxing with beautiful sunsets at night. We didn't try the pool, it was too windy (mistral) during our stay but it was big enough. If you stay here, you have to know that you'll be charge for the electricity, the cleaning at the end of your stay and for the bedsheets and towels. The only thing that didn't work for us was the Wi-Fi connexion. Domaine de Laforest was a great experience for us and I hope to go back one day.
