Rustic, atmospheric, a bit 'other worldly'

The walk is about one and a quarter kilometres long and by strategically placing explanations and picture that Van Gogh painted, the walk is entertaining and shortened by this build up about Van Gogh. It is an easy walk although the last part is not really suitable for wheelchairs. Highly recommended way to approach and then visit the place where... More

The walk may not in fact place you exactly where Van Gogh sat and painted but gives you a perspective of time and place and shares the paintings as they evolved. The walk itself is pleasant and insightful.

Imagine Van Gogh and Nostradamus also walked these evocative streets too. The images you will see are plaques showing Van Gogh paintings and telling you a little about the works. The asylum is a must see.

It is a very pleasant walk, or bike ride for some, from the centre of charming Saint Remy. Maps of the route are available from the tourist centre. There are over 20 plaques of Vincent's art, although two were missing. They give such insight and evoke such emotion for those touched by his art. We finished off with the walk... More

We took the walk as part of a cruise excursion to the area. It was very interesting to see places where Van Gogh lived and painted near the end of his life. Seeing the actual rooms, buildings, and scenery of his world in close proximity to his paintings highlighted his artistic vision and creativity - and his pain and suffering.... More

We enjoyed some parts of the Van Gogh walk, while others seemed too spread out and the plaques simply overlooked tall walls on tight streets. If you are a Van Gogh fan, the better option in this area is the mental hospital that hosted him during his year in St Remy.

Driving en route to Roman ruins we stopped to park and- voila! -there was the hospital that treated Van Gogh for insanity. His room is preserved, the view is a scene he painted (minus the bars) and pother famous paintings are pointed out by plaque in place of inspiration. Amazing! It is called Cloitre Saint-Paul and is in St Remy-de-Provence... More

Part of the walk took us along the verge of a busy road. While some of the commentaries were interesting, the plaques themselves were nothing to write home about. St Remy is a delightful town with a great market, and it's a convenient hub for touring Provence, but to be frank, the local sights are poor.

The links between Van Gogh and the various signposts seem a little tenuous, and not all that relevant. If you are tired of sitting in town-centre cafés, drinking and people-watching, you may - like us try this walking tour. It's ok as a diversion - but you may feel your time may have been better spent enjoying cafe-society in St... More
