About this listing
Right in the heart of historical Arles "La Roquette" which used to be the fisher's district.
Charming "Arlésienne" house with modern-typed furnishing. Her biggest pro: the presence of a green garden, private, where a large table will let you enjoy meals outside, in the shade of the trees or the arbour.!
It will charm any art and design enthusiast with her elegant decoration, XX's century design "pieces" chosen. On the walls are several contemporary paintings and photographs.
The house is 150 sqmeters + green garden, well exposed to sunlight (south-east), & was totaly renovated therefore is in good condition, all the architecturals details that made provencals houses typical & beautiful have been retained.
We choose to keep the original floors (tiled cement ) in original condition ,
Situated in proximity of all kinds of shops (food, clothing...), restaurants and touristic destinations (museums, art galleries, ruins...).
La Roquette is a safe & very lovely district, you will be at walking distance (less than 3minutes walk garantied) of several bars, restaurants & any attractions...
