The Easter Feria, marks the start of the French bullfighting season but is above all an excuse to party and the city is brought alive with Spanish rhythm! Encierros, bodegas, music in the streets, come and experience a Feria like no other. Every year, before the Feria, the "Espace Toro" is set up in the Gimeaux corrals. Here you can see the bulls that will be in the bullfights and learn about the various bull-fighting traditions in the South of France. There are usually two bullfights a day in the Arles arena, lassified a 1st category arena, French arenas being classified into three categories.
This old house boatman, fully renovated and situated in the historical center of Arles, near the quays of the Rhone, historic sites, cultural life of the city, museums, cafes, restaurants and shops.
This typical house, recently listed 5* by "Bouches du Rhône Tourism" offers comfort and cocooning. The decor is neat, the welcome is warm.
It is a wonderful place to enjoy and discover one of the most famous Provence territory, the Camargue, with on the Southside Nîmes, Avignon, the Lubéron, Marseilles and many small picturesque villages that are easily accessible by driving.
Super Séjour à Arles. Bravo Lise.
Maison très bien aménagée et située non loin de l'accès à l'autoroute. Intérieur spacieux et la terrasse est fantastique pour y prendre l'apéro. La cuisine possède tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour cuisiner. Lise est très accueuillante et disponible pour répondre à vos questions. Nous retournerons sans aucun doute dans cette maison lors de notre prochain passage.
What a great holiday we had there!
We highly recommend this house as the perfect place to enjoy a holiday in Arles.
The house is beautifully decorated, fully equipped and very spacious. The architectural layout has a charm about it that really makes you relax and feel at home.
The property is very well situated to explore Arles and access to the main roads to explore the Camargue, the Luberon or perhaps for a day trip into Marseille is very easy from this location.
The house is managed by a charming lady who welcomes you and is very helpful and well organised with presenting all the information you may need to enjoy your stay.
We will certainly try to re-book another holiday there when we next visit the area. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this accommodation to others.
Le séjour a été très agréable, la maison est très agréable et spacieuse. L'hôtesse a été très gentil avec nous et elle a nous donné des informations sur les endroits à visiter dans Arles et autour de la ville. Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour et la maison était pleine de tout: vaisselle, vaisselle, linge de lit, serviettes, etc.
My two friends and I enjoyed this lovely home. The location was excellent for touring around the city of Arles itself, absolutely full of wonderful attractions and ancient and historic sights, every one of which was within a 15-minute walk of the house. We walked around and through the neighborhood and had a "waving relationship" with several local merchants. Arles was a perfect center for driving out every day, as we did in our rental car, to surrounding cities and villages and sights. We were there two full weeks and never ran out of anything to do. The proximity to the freeway made it easy to be on our way every morning; however, the freeway noise might be a problem for some people as it is quite pronounced. Parking had been a problem until we discovered a free parking lot a few blocks away, which relieved us of that stress. This house is perfect for women traveling together because it has twin beds and three separate toilet areas. At the house there is a good supply of books, maps, and brochures to help in planning excursions. Although the WI-FI was excellent for internet use, two of us could not access our email for some reason. Learning to operate the washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher caused us some problems because all the instructions are in French. Lise is an attentive and adorable landlady and we enjoyed all of our interactions with her. However, the language barrier was a problem at times, too, so a little knowledge of French would be advised.
Comme chaque année à la même époque, nous avons passé une semaine en Arles. C'est la première fois que nous louons chez Lise, mais nous lui avons déjà réservé pour l'année prochaine. Dès l'arrivée nous nous sommes sentis 'comme chez nous', tout est propre et agencé avec goût. Rien ne manque, tout est fait pour que les vacances soient réussies. Nous n'avions jusqu'à présent jamais loué de maison aussi bien équipée. Cette maison dégage une atmosphère particulière de bien être. Excellent rapport qualité prix!!! Merci Lise et à l'année prochaine...
