A great place to stay off the beaten path. We found it nice and convenient for our needs to practice the French language.
St Etienne de Gres is a small quiet village, an ideal place to stay with the bustling St Remy de Provence with all its shops and restaurants just 15 mins down the road. Les Baux de Provence, a beautiful, medieval village with its Carriers de Lumieres, a fantastic light show, is also nearby. During our weeks stay we also visited Arles, Avignon and Saintes-Marie's-de-la-Mer in the Camargue. The cottage itself is very well equipped and furnished with excellent outdoor space. My husband and I were very comfortable there.
Our hosts, Genevieve and Michel Fritsch, were extremely friendly and helpful. Our problem with the washing machine was fixed the very next day, and Genevieve finished the load we were doing when the washing machine failed in her own washer and hung them out for us. When we had a problem with our rental car Michel went with us to the car mechanic to help with getting us back on the road. Their help was wonderful! The cottage was clean and well appointed - everything one could expect!
We had a lovely week in this charming cottage. The location is suburb within easy distance of all of the sights and in a small but charming village with all of the necessities. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming. Overall we had a great time and look forward to coming back.
