About Villa Indika
This recently built and tastefully decorated villa accommodates up to 13 people.
It has a heated pool and air conditioning and is just a few minutes drive away from the village of Saint Rémy de Provence where there are shops and restaurants.
Saint Rémy has a golf course, as well as, tennis courts and riding stables. You can also go fishing or gliding, and there are endless places to walk or cycle through the hills and discover for yourself, unspoiled, tucked away areas.
Glanum, just outside Saint Rémy is one of the most important Roman archeological sites in Provence. Founded 300 BC, it reveals a civilization that influences life here even today.
You can see thermal baths, an avenue of houses, the temple and the natural spring, and the remains of a Gallo-Roman town dating 30-10 BC. On the road leaving Glanum are the ancient Arc de Triomphe and Les Antiquities, the gateway to Glanum, standing as they have since that time. Close by is St Paul de Mausole, where Van Gogh spent his last days.
From there it is only a short drive through the hills to Les Beaux, an ancient village perched high on the rocks, once one of the most celebrated and brilliant of the troubadour courts of love in the Middle Ages, now romantically ghostly.

My name is Céline and I am French, living in Alsace. I earn my living as a real estate agent. My job means that I know and understand property and so I built this house as I would want it to be were I to live in it permanently myself.
I have always loved Provence for its sunshine and ambience and I chose St-Rémy-de- Provence as it is a very old town and very beautiful, nestling in the centre of the National Park of the Alpilles. I built this house so that I could enjoy it with family and friends and rent it out when I cannot be there.
I hope you will come to St-Rémy too and experience this glorious southern French lifestyle.
