Live like a Local and rent a flat in Saint Remy old village centre

When staying in St Remy, the choice is vast when it comes to choosing your accomodation. St Remy offers a wide range of accomodation, many B&B, 18 hotels, campsites, gites (self catering) or just renting a flat or a house. And then comes a dilemna : be sure of where and what you rent......

My friend Mireille, born in St Remy, owns a cute house tucked in the very centre in one our tiny street. Since she lives on her own now she's retired, she converted part of her house into a sweet 60m² (about 600 sq ft) appartment for 2/3 people.
The flat, located on the 2nd level, offers a vast living/dining room/kitchen with all amenities (incl dish washer), a mezanine with a single bed and a separate bedroom with shower room.

As you can see from my pictures (taken on Feb 25th), Mireille decorated her flat with a certain style, adding nice antique furniture that she didnt get from a garage sell (as some other do....). The flat comes with A/C (much needed in summer and even in spring). Rates go from 330 € in low season to 450€ high season which I feel like a good value for money (add a 40€ for departure cleaning).

Pass the door way and you are in 10 seconds from the rue Carnot (one of the cutest and shopping street in St Remy). In the morning, bakeries are just a minute away (and you can change from one day to another). On Wednesday, get your basket and shop in the market. On other days, just go to the Spar supermarket like we local do...

The only downside, of course, is that you don't have a terrace or a garden (hence the reason why I moved from the centre of St Remy...) but the roof top view from the flat is a marvel (to my taste).

You'll get to meet Mireille, one of the local figure who knows everybody in St Remy (she was an architect and still works a bit for fun).
