Villa overview - owner's description

Provence. Sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms. Private pool with summer kitchen. Large garden, extensive terraces with panoramic views. Wi-Fi. All amenities within 5 min.

Villa Romane is just 1 mile (1½ km) out of the historic Medieval town of Beaucaire, (between Arles and Avignon).

Imposing 12th Century ruined castle perched high on a rock overlooking the majestic river Rhône.

There is a delightful river marina crammed with colourful boats of all shapes and sizes which is bordered with restaurants and bars full of character.

Alongside the marina the square is shaded by the typical spreading plane trees (platanes) so loved in village and town squares throughout this region.

The beautiful walled city of Avignon - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Medieval city of Popes - the biggest gothic palace in the world and the legendary bridge made famous by the song known to every child 'Sur le Pont, d'Avignon'.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and the impressive Greco-Roman archaeological site of Glanum, and the beautiful retreat where Van Gogh spent a prolific year inspired by the luminosity of the light in this region.

11th Century Les Baux-de-Provence dominating the Provence landscape.

The Roman centre of Arles described by Constantine as 'the little Rome in Gaul', the great obelisk, the theatre, the amphitheatre arena and the Cloisters of Saint-Trophime.

Nîmes with its impressive Roman arena. The beautiful Roman 'Jardin Des Fontaines' which it has been said inspired the gardens at Versailles, and the 'Maison Carreé' much like the Parthenon in Athens.

Pont du Gard-a World Heritage Site, the incredible triple height bridge built by the Romans, one of the finest and most grand pieces of architecture antiquity has bequeathed to us. The aqueduct level delivered pure water to the Roman baths and fountains at Nîmes for over 200 years.

Uzés, a delightfully restored Medieval town, the seat of the Dukes of Uzés (the first Dukes of France) for over a thousand years and its lovely cathédrale with its tall tower unique in France and similar to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Aix-en-Provence, a city of art and culture, home of Cezanne and the city of a hundred fountains.

The Luberon - Gordes, Menerbes, Bonnieux and Roussillon.

Marseille with its picturesque old port and beautiful church high up on the hill (go up on the little 'street train touristique') overlooking the city, the Mediterranean, and the fortress island, Isle d'If - home of Alexander Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo.

Montpellier, elegant and classical, rather like a Paris of the South.

Orange, the great Imperial Roman theatre - yet another UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Camargue - calm and mysterious - try to take a Land Rover safari or a boat trip through the lagoons and waterways.
Aigues-Mortes, a beautifully preserved town completely enclosed by ramparts. The French kingdom's first Mediterranean port and the departure point for the Orient and the Crusades.

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer - like Mediterranean seaside resorts were 70 years ago - quiet and gentle with unspoilt and uncrowded beaches.

Beaucaire was such an important market place in France throughout the Middle Ages that prices struck here for commodities such as wine and cheese, metals and timber, fruit and meat, leather and silk, pots and pans became the norm throughout France.

Its Medieval Fairs attracted buyers and sellers from all over Europe and Asia and there are countless ancient buildings which bear witness to Beaucaire's great past. The town is steeped in history and still today there are regular markets, fairs, festivals and celebrations commemorating bygone days and traditions.

Beaucaire looks across the Rhône to its equally lovely neighbour Tarascon with the marvellous Good King Rene's castle, one of the best preserved Medieval fortresses in the whole of France; it's partly fortified old town, the 17th Century Town Hall and grand 19th Century theatre - originally a 16th Century abbey.

The Roman town of Arles is also only a 10 min drive. Many Roman and Romanesque monuments are still in use today; the amphitheatre provides the setting for bullfights and concerts, and what remains of the theatre plays host to formal concerts and traditional folk festivities throughout the year.

The Cathédrale Saint-Trophime, with its magnificent doorway depicting the Last Judgement carved in stone and its beautiful cloisters, is open to the public for visits and Sunday services.
The necropolis, or Alyscamps, is today a narrow, tree-lined avenue, located just outside the old town.

Arles also boasts one of the regions finest markets every Wednesday and Friday. Overflowing with Provençal goodies- fruits and vegetables, lavender products, soaps, olives, flowers, honey... The list is endless and makes the Arles market an event not to be missed!

Also not to be missed is a day out to Avignon to discover the winding streets and lovely Provençal shops. Here you'll find the wonderful 'Pope's Palace' - the former home of the Pope which really is spectacular. And the infamous 'half-bridge'!

For wine lovers, this is paradise; domaines and tasting almost on every corner.

Villa Romantique was built around an old circular stone tower with windows dating from 1820.

Set on top of a hill overlooking Beaucaire and the Provençal countryside, the property has been completely renovated to provide comfortable and welcoming accommodation for 12 people.

It combines great charm, many original Provençal features and pretty and decorative touches, with modern day comforts.

The approach to the villa is up a steep and winding private lane that leads to just a few other homes set amongst pine, walnut and olive trees.

Entry into the grounds through large, decorative wrought iron gates which are electronically controlled, thus ensuring privacy and a feeling of exclusivity. In a commanding hilltop position - private but not isolated.

The house, terrace and pool with far-reaching panoramic views across the magnificent Rhone valley stretching for over 40 miles (60 km) towards chic and fashionable Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, birthplace of the 16th Century astrologer Nostradamus; to the 11th Century village and ruined Medieval citadel of Les Baux-de-Provence perched high on a wild mountain-top escarpment and voted one of the most beautiful village in France.

Villa Romane is bright and airy, painted white throughout and furnished in a charming and colourful antique Provençal style. It faces south and enjoys the full benefit of the quality of light and the delicious warmth for which this region is justly renowned all year round.

Superb pool area with circular, balustraded private pool and surrounding sun terraces. Pool-side summer kitchen and conservatory-style living room.
