Interaction with Guests
We do not live in France. However the neighbors are very friendly and our caretakers will take care of any problems.
Beaucaire is an ancient city dating back to pre-Roman times. From the 15th to the 19th centuries it was the largest market in the Mediterranean region, Because of this many magnificent merchants' palaces were built throughout the town. Architecturally the town is one of the best places to visit for 15-19th century palatial architecture.
There is a small train station in Beaucaire and a larger station in Tarascon, 1 km from the apartment. There also is regular bus service to Nimes and Avignon.

It is important to inform our caretakers in advance about your arrival, as they do not live in the building. They prefer arrivals after 4 PM but may be able to make some exceptions. Also, please remember that this is an apartment building. So no loud parties after 10 PM!!
About the Host, Barney
We love France and have owned this apartment since 2003. Since we live in New York we enjoy offering guests the opportunity to stay in this comfortable large apartment with a huge terrace facing the Rhone river. The building itself was a merchant's palace built in about 1800, making it one of the newer buildings in Beaucaire :). It's a perfect location to explore western Provence and the Rhone valley.
