About This Listing
Our house is located on a picturesque little street right by the arena. Enjoy the charm of an authentic "arlésienne" house, and a cosy bedroom!
Our stone townhouse has been renovated over the past seven years safekeeping the authentic spirit of local architecture.
The room is at the groundfloor and has an independant access. This is a master bedroom with a private WC and tropical-marble mosaic shower, a queen size bed and a decent amount of storage space for clothes and belongings.
Coffe & tea are available in the room and you can also use the kitchen and help yourself with the breakfast (tea, coffee, cereals, milk, bread & croissants)
The bedroom has an independant access. You will have access to the kitchen and the living-room, where you can have breakfast in the morning & cook anytime you want.
Interaction with Guests
We will do our best to help you to organize your venue in Arles. We're both working the whole day but we love to take some time with our guests in the evening. Obviously, we're available anytime if you have any question or request.
Arles is best known for its Antique Roman heritage, giving it's small streets a picturesque and Provence feeling among the main Roman architectural monuments the city has conserved (in rather good conditions).
Our home is located in the heart of the city center. It is a quiet and friendly street (where you'll most probably see a cat or two sitting on a window ledge...) a step away from the roman Amphitheater and a five minute walk from town hall.
In our neck of the woods you'll find a nice Italian restaurant around the corner, a few secondhand shops, small bakeries, cafés, chocolate/coffee shops as well as high end clothing or wine shops.
The weekly street market (food/clothes...) in Arles is the largest in the region along with Aix-en-Provence, and is held on Saturday mornings. A smaller version is held on Wednesdays.
From a point of view located near the amphitheater, you can look out on the most western part of the Alpilles mountainous range, that extends roughly 25-30km from the Rhône to the Durance valley. Only a 15 minute drive from town, the Alpilles boast of pretty villages, scenic routes in beautiful landscapes, and trails you can hike or bike on.
Vincent van Gogh often painted the Alpilles and spent some time in Arles before passing away. His passage in Arles has left humanity with some of his most appreciated works. The Foundation Van Gogh is due to re-open in their new facilities in April 2014.
Last but not least, Arles was for the Romans and still is a strategic place to live in, as it is the capital of the Camargue. With it's Delta and it's Regional Natural Park (salt marsh, wetlands, horses, flamingos...) the Camargue is a must see for bird lovers.
Arles' location makes it a 25 minute drive to Nîmes,
35 minutes to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer,
40 minutes to Avignon,
55 minute drive to either Aix-en-provence, Marseille, Marseille Airport or Montpellier.
Paris is roughly 3h30 minutes by train.
Our home is within 10 minutes walking distance from the train station.
Make yourself at home!
We're sorry but we don't accept pets.
The whole house is a non smoking place, thank you!
Chloe and Damien were organised and friendly. Their house is located 8 mins walk from the train station and 1 minute (or less) from the Roman Arena. Directions sent in advance were excellent. On arrival, Chloe talked me through a list of their recommended places to eat, and marked some on a map she handed me. The room, at street level, was large and very comfortable. I slept and showered well. Breakfast was great. Highly recommended.
We spent 12 days at Chloé´s and Damian´s place in May 2015 and enjoyed it very much. Our room was not big but lovely and it was well separated from the rest of the house so that we could feel private when we wanted. On the other side Chloé and Damian asked us to feel like at home and to come to their living room and kitchen every time we want for a glass of wine and/or just talk with them or cook something. The house is very nice and very clean, the breakfast rich, every wish is fulfilled.
Chloe, Damien and their son were amazing hosts! They had a long list of places to eat, visit and shop at. They were very friendly and talkative, and they made us feel apart of the community. They gave us plenty of advice on how to find anything that we needed (especially relating to things like when shops close, directions and where to park) and patiently responded to our many questions. They also provided us with amazing breakfasts, tea and a tea pot in our room.
The room was extremely clean, in a quite part of town, and very close to many amazing restaurants, shops, and car rental facilities. It has it's own private bathroom, a dresser, and a wardrobe.
We loved staying with them and would definitely stay with them again if we are ever back in Arles.
maison tres bien située pour visiter Arles et ses monuments .
Chambre bien placée en rez de chaussée
Nous avons été bien reçues par Chloé,Damien et Fabio (4ans)
Très bon accueil, famille sympathique et à l'écoute, chambre et salle de bain privative impeccables avec accès indépendant ( au rez-de-chaussée, l'appartement familial est aux étages), situation idéale à deux pas des arènes, nous recommandons.
C'est une maison ancienne, en plein cœur de la vieille ville d'Arles.
Elle a été rénovée avec goût tout en préservant l'authenticité des lieux.
L’accueil de Chloé et Damien est spontané et chaleureux.
Nous nous sommes sentis de suite "comme à la maison".
La chambre et la salle de bain constituent un cadre très sympa, tout comme le reste de la maison.
Le dernier étage abrite la cuisine et le salon, inondés de clarté, où il fait bon s'attarder après le petit déj pour découvrir l'impressionnante collection de vynils ou "bouquiner" un moment.
Nous reviendrons sans hésiter.
