It was Anne Marie's mother Marthe and an English speaking neighbor welcomed us. We were late for about an hour due to the late train and they were patiently waiting for us at the apartment and explained everything. We stayed in this lovely apartment for 4 nights. It was our home base for daily trips around Provence. The location is excellent. Very close to all restaurants and stores and all activities in St. Remy. We stayed during the July 14th France national day and there are lots of activities going on and all within few minutes walk from the apartment. The apartment is spacious and very clean. It is very secured and having a private parking space was very convenient. It was a extremely hot summer with day time temperature up to 38-39 degrees. It was a little hot as the apartment does not have air conditioning but it was bearable at night when it cools down a bit with windows open and there is a fan. The pool is very nice to cool down in such hot days. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer. I strongly recommend this apartment when visiting the area.
Anne Marie and Philippe have been easy to reach via messages and phone calls. We only met Marthe in person. She welcomed us (French only! But no problem as what we need to know is easy to show) and took us around the apartment. Although the photos are accurate, one is still wonderfully surprised by the location and facilities. Their place is immaculate, with a lovely, clean, modern feel. The shower is very good, beds comfortable, new-looking kitchen very well equipped. The (secure) parking bay is fine for a saloon car. Safety in the building is perfect, and the swimming pool is fantastic -- we did not find it busy in July, and residents were very polite.
There was a lovely bottle of rosé and another of sparkling water in the fridge for us, a pack of delicious local biscuits on the table.
It's also the little (but so important) things for travellers, that we welcomed -- and which so many other hosts do NOT provide -- that are found here aplenty: toilet and kitchen rolls, liquid soap, detergent, seasonings, olive oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, coffee, tea, teacloths, lots of pots and pans, crockery and cutlery, cups and glasses -- you name it -- was available, all looking new.
Satellite TV, Internet, all worked very well. We couldn't find the controls for the blinds, but an email solved the problem. The balcony was superb for evening meals. When the pool no is no longer sunny, you can sit at the balcony and enjoy watching the sunset from there, and have a meal alfresco. The lounger chair was broken, but the wooden table and chairs are great!
There is a standing fan. We were out all days, most of the day, and so did not miss aircon.
We only wish we could have stayed at Anne Marie and Philippe's place longer than 3 nights, but don't holidays fly by?
We are super happy guests and hopefully will be back!

It was a little hot as the apartment does not have air conditioning, but this is a particularly hot summer in the area. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer available. I strongly recommend this apartment and will stay again if we come back in the future to the area.

This is a gorgeous apartment in the center of St Remy, 5 minutes walk to the market, the shops, restaurants and boulangeries. It is spotlessly clean, is very well equipped and has a good deck overlooking the 25metre pool. Secure parking is available below the apartment and although a little tight, we were able to park our Peugeot 308sw after first removing the luggage. We were met at the apartment by Anne Maries mother, Marthe and shown around the complex. There is no a/c, but even though the days were up around 30 degrees, there was a breeze keeping the apartment cool. The photos and description are accurate. The wifi is reliable. Based on the postboxes, there would be about 50 apartments in the complex, but it was remarkably quiet, although I would think that it could get a bit noisy around the pool area on hot days in the summer. Thank you Anne Marie and Phillipe.
We loved the apatment in St. Remy. The photos do not do it justice as it is bigger than it seems and the pool area is much nicer. The apartment has all you may need, it is very clean, and it is very comfortable. It is walking distance to downtown and its shopping and restaurants. You can also easily reach the Van Gogh walk and the roman ruins on foot. Highly recommended!
We stayed at Villa Serena for 5 nights. It was our home base for day trips in and around Provence. The owners speak very little English but they were friendly and their orientation tour was helpful. Location is excellent, 1 min walk from Van Gogh’s neighbourhood with all of its beauty, food and charm.
The apartment is bright, spacious and clean. The kitchen is well appointed with stove, oven and Ikea wares however we opted against any cooking given the temperature inside the apartment.
There is no air conditioning, which we found odd given the other amenities and resources devoted to security (e.g., a key is required 3-6 times per entry depending on point of entry, through electronically controlled magnetized gates, locks, code inputs, key fob swipes, etc). Even with all the windows open, the interior was quite warm and humid irrespective of the temperature outside, and to be honest the thick heat made for difficult sleeping. There is, at least, an oscillating fan that you can move around depending on the room you’re in.
The washing machine and dryer don’t work well. We resorted to hang drying after the first load.
No toiletries, toilet paper or shower soap are provided, so bring/buy your own. Otherwise the bathroom is in good order, save for a slow draining sink.
The pool is a nice but popular spot; good if you’re looking to socialize.
The underground parking garage is nice and secure, but small is better than big here as navigating into and out of the spot can be tricky.
If you can live with the heat, all in all this is a good, clean, secure apartment in a great location.
A splendid apartment in a quiet area, near the central area of beautiful St. Remy. Anne Marie and Philippe welcomed us, explained everything and were very helpful. The apartment was exceptionally clean, modern and comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.
