On the advice of the TI in town, we parked here and saw the majority of the Van Gogh placards around the building rather than taking the long walk from town and seeing just a few along the way. Most of the placards are just outside this building and they relate directly to what is before you. Worth the time.

He stood here! This is his view! This was his room! Van Gogh is one of those historical moniliths. Kids remember the ear and was there something about going crazy in France....? The touching reality of inspiration, frustration and humanity has been preserved rightly. The excerpts from letters of the time are particularly moving. Gorgeous & welcoming too. I can't... More

We recently visited Saint-Remy specifically to visit this site. To me, a Van Gogh fanatic, this site cannot be missed. Vincent was treated here after suffering mental problems. Pictures of many masterpieces painted here align the walls leading into the cloister. Vincent had a small room on the second floor overlooking a garden. The room is furnished like it may... More

A walk through the gardens and into the cloister where one of the most famous artists lived was intriguing. For 4.65 Euros, you can stand in front of the irises he painted, stand in the fields where he captured views of wheat and stand in a replica of his room where he lived for one year. Along the path towards... More

The grounds of the hospital are very beautiful. Although few things were in bloom in late October, late Spring and Summer must be gorgeous. It was interesting to see the hospital and compare it to today--what a contrast. Very peaceful and serene place.

If you're already in Saint Remy, you should't miss it. It's very close to the centrum and place itself doesn't take long to discover. Main building has a small atrium full with flowers. You can see the actual room of Van Gogh and there are pictures of his paintings everywhere. I'm glad that i didn't skip it.

A beautiful setting in which Van Gogh spent his last days and completed many of his famous paintings. Worth spending time for a visit!

Walking the grounds where Vincent Van Gogh had once done was quite an interesting experience. Various works of art are showcased throughout the venue. The grounds are quite picturesque and exciting to explore. Van Gogh's room is preserved and accessible to visitors. If you're passing through Saint-Remy de Provence, it would certainly be worth your time to visit this site.

Very nice touring where Van Gogh spent time painting and also seeing his subjects. Fascinating history. Grounds are lovely. Don't miss this one.

This place really gave an excellent picture of what life was like here for Vincent Van Gogh for the year he lived this asylum. The gardens would have been gorgeous in bloom. It was also fascinating to see the actual landscape he used for his paintings.
