About this listing

The space

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...
And good ones, we'll provide you our best choice, the best addresses! Where to be!
Every saturday, is organised one of the biggest and most beautiful open-sky market of Provence, one end of which is 100 meters away from the house. You can actually go everywhere by foot from the house, no need to use your car once you are there.

Sylvie's house is absolutely marvelous. Filled with unique found objects and artwork. Each of the four bedrooms are decorated with such charm, it was difficult to decide which to spend the night. The back garden was heady with the scent of jasmine, as was all of Arles. We would definitely recommend this property to all kinds of people. Families, couples, girlfriends, multiple couples, it would prove to be very comfortable. We were...enchanted!

Sylvie has a beautiful house in the old city of Arles, walking distance of all main city attractions. The house is well prepared to spent high quality time with friends and family, including a nice garden. It is a Cousy and pleasant house. The support from sylvie's team was really good, it made our life easy. We are grateful. I strongly recommend this house.

Great house and a great town. An autumnal experience with lovely food and a warm fire. Would recommend others to visit the food market on Saturday as early as possible during their stay. The host was welcoming and very pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend people to stay here.

Camille and her mother, the ladies who welcomed us, were charming and very helpful about points of interest and where to eat in town. The house is really lovely, very French. The photos on line are completely accurate. We had a wonderful week in this beautiful area.

The house is absolutely beautiful, smack in the middle of the nicest street in Arles' old neighbourhood. The interior design is stunning and the garden was so nice that we had trouble leaving! Our host was extremely helpful and resourceful. We were even given a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. Will come again for sure!

The house was very nice, especially the kitchen. The garden is very nice as well. The house is well located, it's right in the center. Unfortunately there is no free parking nearby.
