Nice place, a bit shabby, but the owner had warmed the place up and it was lovely and warm. Although the gite is quite comfortable, I feel that it needs a bit of money spent on it to bring it up to standard and the towels which were very hard and grey/white should be binned! they were definitely well past...

While visiting picturesque town Saint Remy de Province there is no better place to stay than La Balancelle. It is a comfy and cozy little place with a nice pool, green garden and a parking lot. Inside a gite (a separate block of 3 bedrooms and a large open-space living room/kitchen) you will find everything you need for a superb... More

We were here in early September and its a great place. Small, private overlooking the pool. Close to town which is very pretty and has everything you could need. A very interesting area with lovely drives , Van Gogh walk, Roman ruins and Baux en Provence. Great value.

I love Saint Remy. This was my first visit to Gites La Balancelle. The owner was very welcoming. I was a bit cold the first night, but he responded extremely well, and provided extra blankets and was very extremely respectful. To be fair, the weather was up and down and it was not his fault the temperature was changing so... More

My friends and I had a lovely relaxed long weekend. The host was exceptionally pleasant and made us very welcome. The gite has loads of character and personally I loved how it was like a home from home. If you prefer sterile & clinical its not the place for you. However, if you want a warm, relaxed environment then this... More

We were here with my grown son and his wife for five nights in October 2012, and had a very good experience. First, St. Remy is a great location as a home base for Provence. It has grocery, pharmacy, good restaurants, interesting things to see (Van Gogh walk), and Wednesday morning market. A small town to love. We did have... More

We have been staying at La balancelle each summer since Stephane, the owner has opened this place. It is very charming , quiet and friendly. The location is great, almost in town but also very quiet. The biggest gite is very comfy and can accomodate a large family. The pool is right outside and the children can play while you... More
