This gite was chosen because it was only an hour from Marseille airport where we flew into. The Gite was an excellent choice - clean, lots of space and only a 10 minute drive into Arles. It was slightly difficult to locate on arrival, but only because I didn't follow my GPS through Arles. Other reviewers have complained about the minor charges for towels and electricity, but considering the overall price it is an excellent choice. I would definitely stay here again. Sylvie the owner was very pleasant and helpful. You should be aware that you will have to supply your own dish soap, dish clothes and towels and replace the toilet paper, but these are minor.
