"La Cigale Monplaisir" is a nice and charming location in Arles.
From 2 to 3 people can share comfortably this 30m2 flat type house, without frontal neighbours.
Due to the plenty of sunshine, comfortable equipment and central gas heat system, this place can be cosy and nice the whole year long.
The decor is neat and the house has vintage furnitures. There's only one room, but for a two rooms configuration, the sofa can be installed in the large kitchen. The south oriented terrace and the private garden offers great opportunities for dinners, resting, sun bathing and barbecues.
We also offer a free LAN WIFI connection in the bedroom and the garden.
If you come by car the address is easy to find and the street offers many opportunities for free on-street parking.
If you come by train I can pick-up you at the Arles station and take you back.
The house, the terrace and the garden are independent. We live in another house just near your but we are discrete and we won't disturb you.
We will welcome you genially, we can loan bikes for your own comfort. We speak english and we understand spanish and italian; we will propose to you french breakfasts, brunches, and many other useful and smart services.
Let us help you to appreciate our lovely neighborhood and the city, one of the greatest cultural place in South of France with its roman antiquities, museums and festivals of course!
Near Arles you can also reach Avignon (Palais des Papes), Nîmes, Montpellier and Marseille by car or by train in less than one hour. In the closer nearby you will find a lot of local specialities : craftsmen, gastronomic restaurants, winery, fruits and others great local products…
Finally, remember that Arles is located at the crossroad of three genuine and unique natural territories : Alpilles, Camargue and Crau, which will offer to you many possibilities of trekking, sports, ornithology, fishing and other outdoor activities.
One week certainly won't be enough to discover, visit and experiment all the possibilities; but ask us, and we will help you to organize your stay!
Monplaisir neighbourhood is located in the North-eastern Arles area, built with charming 30's and 40's style working class villas.

Dans friendliness and helpfulness made our stay absolutely perfect!
Dan ist ein perfekter Gastgeber, sehr hilfsbereit und sehr freundlich. Er kennt sich sehr gut in Arles und Umgebung aus und gibt sehr viele hilfreiche Tipps. Zur Begrüßung und zum Abschied hat uns Dan eine Flasche Wein und selbstgemachte Feigenmarmelade geschenkt, außerdem haben wir Eier von Dans eigenen Hühnern bekommen.
Der Aufenthalt war perfekt und wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
Die Beschreibung und die Bilder des Hauses sind zutreffend.
Dan was an outstanding host. He knows a lot about Arles and what to do (nature/art) The experience will be suprising for every new guest i think. We were lucky to join him on an improvisated bike tour through Arles. The pictures are exactly what you find :)
Dan was a fantastic host. He gave us great advice and valuable local knowledge as well as making us feel very welcome. His provision of bikes, baguettes and eggs was over and above.
The apartment was as described. Very clean and well equipped. Comfortable.
The neighbourhood is quiet and a 15 min walk from town and supplies. Bikes are helpful as local public transport is limited.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cet appartement. Dan nous a gentiment conseillé les coins sympa à visiter, et nous a prêté ses vélos ce qui a été bien utile.
L'appartement est très pratique, propre, avec tout le nécessaire. On a adoré la petite terrasse.
Le petit dej c'était le "+" très agréable!
Hem gaudit d'un gran cap de setmana a Arles. En Dan és molt simpàtic i ens ha donat molts consells per descobrir la ciutat i els seus voltants. La casa és magnífica, està molt ben equipada i la terrassa és perfecta per esmorzar :)
A més, en Dan ens va portar l'esmorzar el primer dia, tot un detall!
Us recomano, sense cap dubte aquesta casa!

Thanks for the croissants and figs Dan, it was a great holiday

I'm a musician and photographer, born in 1966 in Arles, FR. My wife Anne is a contemporary dance producer in Montpellier. We live in a house next to your location, but we're discrete and we will leave you alone except if you ask us something.
You can ask us for fresh organic eggs because we have three hens, but they won't disturb you, because they live in a garden on the other side of our house.
That said, Bengali the cat or Hortense the turtle may visit you with curiosity and without announcement during your stay.
