A villa with pool in Provence. Villa Romantique is a stunning and very spacious stone-built holiday villa in Provence with its own magnificent Roman-style colonnaded circular swimming pool, superbly located on a hilltop, and giving you the most wonderful panoramic views. It basks in the sunshine and the very special light of this Provence/Languedoc region and is set in a delightful mature garden amidst the intoxicating fragrances of oleander, wisteria and lavender and among pine, olive and palm trees.
Just 1 mile from the historic twin towns of Beaucaire and Tarascon, you are very centrally located in the circle created by beautiful Avignon, the Luberon, St Remy de Provence, Les Alpilles, Baux-de-Provence, Arles, the Camargue, Nimes, Uzés and the Pont du Gard, and conveniently no more than 12 miles (20 kms) from each and yet only about 40 minutes drive to the Mediterranean.
With 6 double/twin bedrooms and 5 bath/shower rooms Villa Romantique accommodates up to 12 people.
Note: There is a sliding scale of rental charges so that smaller parties pay less - but no part of the villa is shut off from you.
The optional extra gite - 'La Petite Villa Romantique', located in the corner of the garden, accommodates a further 2, 3 or 4 people, if required. Note: It is never rented out separately so if you do not wish to rent it, then rest assured that it will remain unoccupied during your stay.
Villa Romantique was built around an old circular stone tower with windows certainly dating from 1820.
Our villa in Provence has been completely renovated with immense style and an abundance of love and care to provide very appealing, elegant and welcoming accommodation. It combines great charm, many original Provençal features and pretty and decorative touches, with modern-day comforts. Important characteristics for holiday villas in Provence.
The approach to Villa Romantique is up a steep and winding private lane that leads to just a few other Provence villas set amongst pine and olive trees. You enter the grounds through big decorative wrought iron gates which are electronically controlled, thus ensuring privacy and a feeling of exclusivity. Our Provence villa is in a commanding hilltop position - private but not isolated - and very importantly, you are not overlooked nor are you overlooking any other homes. The garden is surrounded by a high wall giving you peace and privacy. These are desirable and rare features for holiday villas in Provence.

A villa with pool in Provence. Villa Romantique is as ideal for 2 people as it is for 12. We have a sliding scale of rental charges so that smaller parties pay less - but note that no part of the villa will be closed off from you. The optional extra 1-bedroomed 'La Petite Villa' located within the grounds accommodates up to a further 4 people - 2 in the bedroom with a further 2 on a sofa-bed, and there is a baby-cot if required.
NOTE: From the prices quoted you may DEDUCT £100 per week for every person FEWER than the maximum 15. Children under 2 at the time of the stay go free.
For instance, in July or August a party of (say) 8 people (i.e. 7 less than the maximum of 15) will pay £700 (i.e. 7 x £100) LESS than the advertised price - therefore. £5,100 - £700 = £4,400 per week. For instance, in June or September a party of (say) 6 people ( i.e. 9 less than the maximum 15) will pay £900 (i.e. 9 x £100) LESS than the advertised price - therefore £4,500 - £900 = £3600 per week.
