Great place and very hospitable hostess!
Thank you, Pauline, we like your pretty house very much! Your tips was very helpful, although Le Gibolin was closed until 17th of Septeber - so, unfortunately, we couldn't taste their kitchen.
Except house itself - very cozy yard and pleasant neighbourhood. The place is close to the center and all antiquities and to railway station.
So, one more time, Pauline, merci bien! If we'll come to Arles next time - we'll stay here!

Highly recommend Pauline's charming home! Fantastic location, couldn't have asked for a better spot. Pauline is phenomenal and very responsive. I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Arles.
Pauline's house is as cute and welcoming as you see it in the pictures. Despite we were there in August, we managed to keep the place pretty cool; the top terrace is great for breakfast and dinner, and everything was clean and tidy. Plenty of towels, beautiful sheets, loads of stuff to cook in the kitchen... No complaints possible!
Un accueil chaleureux et avisé. Une maisonnette sympathique et tout confort. Mon campagnon et moi avons adoré la fraîcheur de la chambre en plein été grâce à la climatisation et, bien sûr, la terrasse aménagée. Un pied à terre typique de la ville, très bien situé pour découvrir les lieux historiques, les marchés, les nombreux festivals qui jalonnent les belles saisons. A deux pas des fameuses arènes, mais juste un peu à l'écart du tumulte des voies trop touristiques. Bref, une excellente adresse…
Perfect location to explore the old town. Nice balcony on the top floor which would be great in the evenings. Pauline was great and easy to get in touch with.
Pauline! My apologies first of all for taking this long to post a review. Life! It gets busy and I'm not a very good juggler at the best of times.
We, being myself, my partner and my two Grandparents stayed in Arles at Pauline's charming little villa during a month long tour around Ireland, the UK and of course France. After a fairly hectic leading up to this point, especially for two 80 year olds It was such a welcome relief to have a well kept, charming, excellently located home to relax in for four days in Arles.
When we arrived in Arles Pauline didn't miss a beat and was there to meet us in the car park located 2minutes walk from her villa. She was an excellent help and exceptionally hospitable, She carried bags for my Grandparents and once in the house she had a local map spread out on the table and went on to highlight all the must see hot spots. She talked extensively with my Grandparents who were keen to know everything about everything before she left.
Our stay was wonderful! The house itself is more of an experience then just somewhere to lay your head at night, it is an original wee villa smack bang in the heart of the old city, you could not get a better location. The master bedroom on the top floor had a quaint little balcony from which you have a stunning view of the Ampitheatre. the room also has air conditioning which you couldn't be without in the height of the French summer, and a toilet ust off the balcony. The lounge has been decorated in a kitsch european retro style and the fold out divan couch is brand new and very comfortable. The kitchen on the bottom floor has everything you need and has a lovely old world french feel to it.
I could not recommend Pauline's place more highly! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
We had a lovely time at Pauline's house, it's a beautiful home in a great location to explore Arles (right in the centre!) and not far from the train station, local market or supermarket. The apartment is on 3 floors with a bathroom on the middle floor and additional toilet outside of the bedroom upstairs. The terrace is great too. Couldn't have asked for anything more, we're looking forward to returning! Also, Pauline was amazing to deal with. Highly recommended - thanks for a lovely holiday!
A delightful Provençal house over three levels on a quiet side lane. Our family of 4 stayed 4 nights and used it as a base for daytrips by public transport to Nimes and Saintes Maries de la Mer. The house is just a short walk from bus stops and train station. Of course there is plenty to see and do in Arles - and we particularly enjoyed the Arles Saturday market.
Pauline was very helpful, and spoke very good English (much better than our French). The kitchen was very well equipped, and there was a good range of DVDs (if you feel like staying in). We definitely recommend this lovely little house.
