We were visiting Arles for the feria and to see my cousin who is currently living there. The apartment was pristine, updated and very comfortable. The location could not have been better! It is on a Main Street with lots of shopping and two grocery stores! The shower had plenty of hot water and great water pressure, the kitchen had everything you would need to cook a meal, although we never did.
We were scheduled to arrive very late on a 11 o'clock train, so my cousin called and arranged to meet Michele to exchange the keys and see the apartment.
Michele was nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The only problem we ran into was that Michele called/texted my cousin way too much during our trip (because my cousin speaks fluent french). She stopped by unannounced with two children in the middle of our stay, and complained to my cousin in one phone call that we were not responsible because we had left a bathroom light on when we left for the evening and asked my cousin how many people had actually been staying at the apartment. During that same phone call she chastised my cousin (who I remind you, was not staying there), that she had not properly passed on a message that Michele wanted to meet us again... After she had already met us the first time, we were only there 4 nights!
Although the apartment was perfect and idyllic, we did experience a few stressful moments during our vacation due to what I believe was unprofessional behavior.
I was very conflicted about writing this review because overall our stay was wonderful, however our interactions with Michele added unnecessary stress to our vacation.
Adorabile! L'appartamento è anche più bello che in fotografia... nonostante sia in centro, essendo affacciato su una corte interna è tranquillissimo. Michele è un'ospite attenta e premurosa: ci ha illustrato dettagliatamente tutte le caratteristiche delle forniture di casa pur essendo malata e ci ha anche fatto trovare tutto l'occorrente per una ricca prima colazione e una bottiglia di ottimo vino della sua zona. Si è messa in contatto con noi anche nei giorni successivi per assicurarsi che tutto procedesse per il meglio. Tutto perfetto!
Michele's apartment is beautiful — exactly as it looks in the photos. It's comfortable, very clean, and centrally located. The apartment doesn't front the street, so it's nice and quiet. The AC works well and was very welcome since the previous place we stayed in Provence didn't have it. The kitchen is pretty minimal, but Michele provided all we really needed: coffee and milk. Plus there's a good bakery right around the corner, so you don't have to go far for your morning croissant. Be aware that the apartment is on a pedestrian-only street, so be prepared to roll your luggage down the block ( this was no problem for us.) Michele also gave us some awesome tips on where to find free parking that was within a 10-minute walk. If you rather park in Arles's one parking garage, that's about a 6-minute walk.
We had a great stay at Michele’s apartment. She was a fantastic host, and a delightful person! She responded immediately to all of our e-mails. She was genuinely concerned that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. She waited an hour for us at the train station after our connection was delayed, and also drove us back to the station early in the morning on our departure date. She generously stocked our kitchen with coffee, sweets, bread, jam, water, milk, condiments. All her appliances worked great and were easy to use; we were able to make all of our own meals. The pictures on Airbnb do not fully show just how beautiful the main room was. The ceilings must be 20 feet high. The walls were accented with gold trim and moldings, and there were antique double-shutter doors over the huge windows. Together it gave the room a romantic and regal atmosphere. We were glad we had 5 days in Arles because we spent more time in our room than we had planned. Her apartment was centrally located; we easily walked to every place we wanted to see. If we return to Arles we would not even consider staying anywhere else but at Michele’s apartment.
What a wonderful space! This flat was perfectly appointed, clean and serene. It is centrally located in Arles, which makes a great base for exploring adjoining villages. The kitchen is great for fixing your morning meal. The bath is spacious with a large open shower and ample space for your toiletries. While Michele was away, Severine was a wonderful hostess and made sure everything was perfect. We could have stayed here forever!
The flat is located on one of the main streets in old section of city. All historical sites, shops, bars, and restaurants are within an easy walk. Michelle was not available during our stay, but we were delighted to meet Severine, who was extremely friendly and helpful. The flat is located on the first floor (2nd US floor). The flat is entered from a "communal courtyard," which is devoid of furniture and is shared with clients of its commercial suites. The flat is described as being an "elevator building," but we were not given the key necessary to use it. While we had no problem using the stairs on a daily basis, we would have preferred to use the elevator when transporting our luggage at the beginning and end of our stay. Otherwise, the flat is just as pictured and described. The A/C unit kept the flat comfortable in warm weather. We were traveling by car, and availability of free parking is a problem on market day(s), so we very much appreciated the map our hostess provided to us that showed the streets where it was possible to find free parking. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Arles, and would not hesitate to recommend this space to a couple on a short visit.
Great apartment right in the centre of town. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. Very friendly and helpful host.
