The house, done in bright Provencal colors, is located on a quiet street, and surprisingly for a home in town, there is little noise.
Although it doesn't show on this photo, the front terrace is quite large, with rooms for lounge chairs and a table and chairs for doing. With the private garden and large pool, you will want to spend a lot of time outdoors.
The pool is 5m by 10m. There is a pool alarm; you can see the small black and white posts on each end of the pool.
St Rémy de Provence is perhaps the most beautiful small town in Provence. Post World War II, it was an agricultural area, specializing in flower seeds and sheep, but now is known as a sophisticated country town with some of the best Provence has to offer,and a wonderful, central location. It is also famous since Vincent van Gogh spent most of the last year of his life here, and painted over 150 paintings.
There are sites in St Remy that you may want to visit either with a guide or on your own: Glanum, very important Roman ruins; the Hotel Estrine, with reproductions of van Gogh’s art; rue Hoche, a tiny street where French-Jewish doctor and astronomer Nostradamus was born in 1503; a fountain to Nostradamus is on the rue Nostradamus, also in the center of town. There is a section of the medieval town with remaining “double ramparts,” with homes built inside the ramparts. Don’t forget the amazing Wednesday market which spreads out throughout the town, and the St Paul de Maussole Hospital.
