B&B Description:

Villa de l’Arc - Résidence Provençale - is a beautiful mansion at the edge of downtown Orange in the Vaucluse (84). The Villa, fully restored in the years 1999-2001, with its parc and swimming pool is situated at a comfortable five minutes walk from downtown.

Villa de l’Arc was build at a unique historic spot: right on the roundabout of the Arc de Triomphe, the more than 2000 years old Roman monument, that is still in almost pristine state. Orange is a pleasant town of about 28.000 inhabitants in Provence with lots of history, all services and situated right in the middle of the wineries of the Southern Côte du Rhône - area, about one hour south of Lyon. The infamous Mont Ventoux is very close, as are the cities of Avignon and Nîmes. The international airport of Marseilles and the Mediterranean
Sea are at a driving distance of less than one hour.

Since 2001, Villa de l’Arc had been used as a luxury Guesthouse.
Villa de l’Arc is a rectangular building with three floors and a total living space of about 350 m². In the years 2000-2001 the mansion was completely and carefully restored with attention for its original details. In 2004 a completely new system of air-conditioning and heating was installed, which can be regulated independently for each of the living spaces. In 2007 a new burglar alarm system was installed.

The parc around the Villa measures 2300 m2. 1950 m2 of that will be sold, together with the house. The rest will be used by the City to improve the appearance of the roundabout of the Arc de Triomphe. De park and terrace face the southeast and have been constructed in such a way that there are areas of shadow throughout the day. The swimming pool always lays in the sun. After 4 p.m., apéro-time in France, the terrace will be in the shadow (which is quite nice in the hot Provincal summer)


by road:

From the north take the A7 to Marseille, or from the south the A7 or A9 to Lyon. Take exit 21 near Orange. Then you are only 5 minutes away from Villa de l’Arc. After the toll exit, go into the direction of the center of town, i.e. straight at the first round-about, straight again at the second and left at the third. There is a sharp turn to the right and then traffic lights. Go left there. You can spot the Arc de Triomphe from a distance. Villa de l’Arc is on the left-hand side, just in front of the Arc.

by rail:

There are ‘normal’ train services to Orange (1,5km form the Villa) from any city in France as well as TGV from Paris or Marseilles. An other rapid train (TGV) station is less than 20mn from the Villa, the station "Avignon TGV". Both are less than 3 hours from Paris. From Avignon, it is only 20 minutes to Villa de l'Arc by car, by train or bus.

by air:

Many airlines fly into Marseilles International Airport. You may also consider using RyanAir from London to Nîmes. Then rent a car or come by train or bus.
