We had a wonderful stay at this superbly located Arles apartment. It is bang at a quiet corner of the Place du Forum so location could not be any better.
The apartment is beautifully decorated with all the modern amenities and a very well equipped kitchen with Nespresso pods and many other kitchen staples. Regis the owner greeted us on arrival with an excellent bottle of wine and of course was amazed at the amount of luggage we had ! There were 8 of us travelling together and so we pretty much used all the bedrooms.
The only negative we had in the apartment was that during our stay Arles in July , it was extremely hot .Though the house was centrally air conditioned all the 4 AC's are located in the corridors and living room area . So apart from the studio room upstairs the 3 bedrooms downstairs got very stuffy at night and we had to keep the bedroom doors open to let the AC cool the rooms down. Keeping the windows open is also not a viable option as because of the location it is extremely noisy and there are quite a few mosquitoes. After day one we got used to keeping the AC on minimum and keeping bedroom doors open but it maybe a better idea to shift the corridors AC's to the bedrooms or have a few fans to provide air circulation. We did mention this to Regis and apparently we were the first people to complain about this so maybe its just us from Asia who live in centrally air conditioned houses that find it uncomfortable and not be a problem for others.
Other than that the apartment itself is wonderful and the location made up for everything and we as a large extended family travelling together had a amazing time in the absolutely stunning town of Arles.
Ideal location for pedestrian access through Centre Ville of historic Arles. With our rental car, easy day trips to Camargue, Avignon, Nimes, etc. Apartment in pristine condition, sparkling clean, all amenities in place and functioning. Very comfortable for 3 adults, 2 well-behaved kids (7 & 11). Lovely, potentially fragile items in apt. so maybe not great for super-young kids. Parking on-street or in municipal lot 5 minute walk away was not inconvenient as long as you can carry all your stuff. Regis was fantastic, friendly and welcoming, offered good info on region and Arles and kept rental process simple. Like staying in the home of a cool friend.
