“Perfectly located friendly base for Provence&Camargue explorers”
Reviewed 6 July 2010

Very welcoming staff, nicely decorated appartments, big rooms and terraces, clean and quiet, with free Wi-fi and a nice (although inlatable) pool. Good location - easy to find and perfectly located for exploration of nearby cities in Provence and Camargue (Arles is just minutes away). You even get a fully equiped kitchen (except dishwasher) and a supermarket at doorstep to fill the fridge or buy breakfast. Free private and secured parking is another plus. A little minus: there is a noisy main street and supermarket parking lot nearby so ask for a room that does not face the main road if you would rather have more peace and quiet. Truly a pleasant stay at a very moderate price. Definetely coming back, possibly in low season ;)

Reviewed 13 June 2010

We had a most enjoyable stay at the Hotel Residence de la Transhumance. We were checked in efficiently by a delightful and very helpful young lady who spoke quite good English. The proprietor was later on duty and he also proved to be very friendly and helpful, speaking good English as well.

We had a large and spacious unit, with very good kitchen facilities and an excellent bathroom. Our room was very clean. Ample secure car parking was provided on site. There are two supermarkets adjacent, but the hotel was generally very quiet.

The hotel is on the outskirts of the nice village of St Martin De Crau. The village has a number of eating places, although with the in room facilities we did not try many of them.

If you have a car, St Martin De Crau is a very handy base for exploring Arles, Avignon, Aix, Aigues Morte etc.

Reviewed 14 August 2009

Welcoming owner who speaks excellent english as well as his daughter. Air conditioned room. Safe secure parking. Spotless apartments with good kitchen. Patio with table, 4 chairs and a sun lounger. Within an industrial estate but you would not know once inside the complex so not a negative comment. Excellent pool especially for the children as very safe and not too deep with inflateble sides and no tiles on the floor of the pool.

St Martin de Crau onlly 2 minute drive and a quaint village with bars/restaurants. Super U, Lidl (right next door), Intermarche (all supermarkets). We had a meal on Saturday evening at the Hotel/restaurant as you come into the village on the left and the food was good value but no english speakers there so struggled a bit with the menu and I ended up with Bull Kebab which was very nice actually. The main street did seem to be a road for the locals to cruise up and down on the evening with loud music which was a bit uncomfortable with the children.

Visit to Arles only 10 - 15 minutes away as very close to motorway and well worth the trip due to the history of the city with Van Gogh, the Collaseum, Amphitheatre and numerous squares with a huge variety of eating places.

Overall I would have to say the La transhumance is an ideal place to stay and was a welcome stopover for us for 2 days. I have no negatives on the complex and found it extremely excellent value for money.

10/10.
