Additional Location Information

Saint Remy de Provence is at the centre of activity in this part of southern France. Popular day-trips from our "hamlet" include Arles with its Roman ruins, Avignon and the Papal Palace, the Luberon, the beaches of the Mediterranean, ...fields of poppies, lavander in bloom, bull-fights, folk festivals, etc., the list goes on and on. We are literally in the middle of Provence, with mountains, the seashore, museums, provencal markets, cycling and even...cooking classes and wine tasting... within easy access.

Sunshine guaranteed, interesting sight-seeing, fine wines and dining, a warm whirlpool year-round, huge pool and terraces, dinner in the oven upon arrival, wine bottles open and ready to be poured into glasses on a nicely set table...the first morning's breakfast ready for you, to assure a fast start on your provencal holiday. We want you to love PROVENCE ....the way we do!

"La Tour de la Girouette" at PROVENCE PARAIDSE is in our restored "hamlet," on a hill just above the old town centre of Saint Remy de Provence. We are well within walking distance of all activities and shops, not more than 10 minutes on-foot along the old canal path or following the quiet, country road into town.

This house is part of a cluster of seven old, provencal farm houses, which we have recently completely restored. "La Tuilerie," which sleeps 12 people, is close by. "Le Vieil Moulin" and "La Tour de la Girouette," which sleep 6 and 8 respectively, and most recently "Le Mas de la Pierre Milliaire" and "La Bastide des Micocouliers" are all just down the hill...on the other side of small streams which flow through the gardens toward the watermill and cascade to make the wheel turn slowly. Our newest house is "Le Nid Biscornu," up in the trees, just for 2 people, reserved for honey-mooners and those celebrating significant anniversaries.

"La Tour" is on two levels, in a building with thick stone walls, built at three major times in history. How do we know? Well, when we took down the old ceilings and layers of paint, we discovered eight-metre-long beams carved by "Emil" (1632), "Charles" (1721), and (young!) Marius (1907), those brave men who built this big, stone house over the course of nearly four centuries. We have spent 12 months doing some (major) "freshening up." The results would have pleased these three provencal gentlemen... just as they will surely please our international visitors!

In the large and comfortable family area, you will find a fully-equipped and modern kitchen with double freezer, washer and dryer combination, dishwasher, cable TV, internet access plus another cosy fireplace. Plenty of space for in/outdoor dining. Just step out onto the terrace, which faces the Alpilles and... go ahead, R-E-L-A-X. You are on holiday in St. Remy de Provence.

Large, shared pool, terraces, summer kitchen, heated jacuzzi, sun/shade furniture, plus game areas, flower gardens, and streams which cascade over a watermill wheel on the property...
