Actually it's not a basement, it's a cheap and sweet ground floor flat with east-oriented low windows, separated from our own flat (we live at the first floor) with a private shaded south-facing patio and a great sunny garden.

The cuty bedroom delivers vintage furnitures and a 140cm (51.11 inches) bed for two persons - or only one person if you're a fat guy (but hipsters are always slim… no shit??).

The main room is a kinda-weirdo-laundry-bathtub-dining room. There u can eat, wash yourself and your own clothes (washing-machine included) but u can't really cook… Obviously there's a kettle, a mini-fridge, a little gas hob for tea / coffee / instant-soup making… And a portable stereo with my own playlist! (It rocks, bro!!)
The toilets are down the hall. Sure, they're private but never forget: this is my home including my whole fucking stuff just behind the beaded curtain, dig?
There's also a garage for bikes.
Other services : Live TV by on your mobile device, WIFI/LAN, bikes available (but no fixies!), fresh eggs from my hens, fresh herbs from the garden to prepare the best teas you've ever drunk! I can also cook for you if you're a rich guy.

  • Dan est vraiment très sympa, nous avons été bien accueilli : il est venu nous chercher à la gare, nous a déposé au marché, nous a donné une carte de la ville et des conseils. De plus, une bouteille de rosé et de la confiture de figue maison nous attendaient à notre arrivée.
    La chambre et la pièce à vivre sont conformes aux attentes : le lit est confortable, la pièce à vivre est assez spartiate mais le nécessaire y est.
    Il faut 10 minutes à vélo et 15-20 minutes à pied pour rejoindre le cœur historique d'Arles.

  • Dan est un hôte excellent et un très bon guide.

    Passionné par l'histoire de sa ville, il a su nous faire aimer Arles et sa feria.
    Il nous a accueilli à la gare, nous a prêté des vélos, nous a conseillés sur les activités à faire en s'intéressant à nos attentes, nous a même offerts des croissants et des oeufs fraîchement pondus et tout ce qu'il a été nécessaire au bon déroulement de notre séjour.
    Nous vous conseillons de séjourner dans ce logement, nous n'avons vraiment pas été déçus !

I loved his garden, not enogh time to enjoy all I definetly stay longer if i ever go there again. Thank you Dan & Anne took me to the Corrida, unforgetable memories. I Would highly recommend his place.
    아를 여행하는동안 댄씨집에 머무는 것은 참 행운이였어요. 집도 깨끗하고 빈티지가구들도 편안했고, 문을 열면 정원이 있어 아침식사도하고 차도 마시도 책도 읽으수 있었고요 인터넷이 잘되 정원에 앉아 필요한 일도 볼수있었어요. 댄씨께서는 아를에대해 아는것도 많으시고 시간이 되시면 차없이 가기 힘든곳도 데려가주시고 설명도 해주셔서 좋았습니다. 점심에 댄씨께서 해주신 쌀밥과 야채볶음도 맛있었어요. :-)

  • We loved the place: The appartment, the garden and your hospitality!
    A hightlight were the hipster bikes: we were a real eyecatcher when we cruised through Arles!!!
    And Anna seriously felt in love with the turtoises ;)
    Thank you!

  • Un accueil enthousiaste, de bons conseils culturels et gastronomiques et de belles attentions (croissant laissés devant la porte le matin et anti-moustique fourni à l'arrivée !). Et pour ne rien gâcher, la fraîcheur de la chambre est très agréable quand il fait chaud... Merci à Dan, nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir passer quelques jours à Arles !

  • Notre séjour chez Dan était extra. Un accueil super et plein d'attentions (tisane maison, petit dej, facilitation des transports dans Arles...). Le basement est très agréable, propre et bien aménagé. Le jardin est un vrai petit coin de paradis. Nous recommandons totalement! On reviendra à l'occasion!

    Our stay at Dan's place was terrific. He welcomed us very nicely (breakfast, home made tisane from the garden, he helps a lot with transportation as well...). The basement is a very comfy place, clean and well equipped. The garden is a little corner of paradise. We totally recommend. And we will come back for sure if we are around!

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.
