I didn't know if a guided tour is required it needed to be booked at the tourist board and we had just walked the 15-20 mins following the Van Gogh trail from the tourist board! Never the less a lovely peaceful and reflective place to be.

Highly atmospheric monastery where Van Gogh stayed for a period of highly productive painting, you can identify precisely what he painted and from where

Wow this was just great. It seemed like I could feel some of what Van Gogh painted. The purple and the yellow flora, the arched outside hallways...Do not miss this. So peaceful - and connected to a very doable walking path that weaves all throughout St Remy.

I recommend you follow the Victor Van Gogh trail from Saint Remy and view all the information panels along the way before entering the museum, that way you will have a reasonable overview of the complexities of the man and have a whetted appetite for the simple but well thought out and presented information and exhibits.

not to be missed, this is a walk from the center of St Remy to visit the hospital where Van Gogh was sent for his recovery, it is well worth a visit and I highly recommend

The Vincent trail from the centre of St Remy takes you past a umber of Van Gogh paitings that were done in the area. St Paul is beautiful inside. Very calm when you consider the torment that must have gone in here in the past. Definitely one to visit.

Gave a glimpse into the life of Van Gogh. Wonderful to see actual places he painted and to learn about him, the period in history and the asylum itself.
