I had the great opportunity to stay at Galerie Huit. I knew very little about Arles before my arrival. Julia could not have been a better host and was very patient, kind and enthusiastic. She gave plenty of personal recommendations for the best restaurants and quaintest parts of town. This hotel-particulier offered a mix of a lively scene- with a... More

We stayed in Julia's Marco Polo suite for 5 nights in the build-up to Arles' biggest cultural event of the year - the Rencontres photography exhibition. Given that Galerie Huit is an art gallery and was hosting about 5/6 different photographic exhibitions in each of its rooms and all its little nooks and crannies, it made things pretty hectic!

Dear House Guests, A warm 'thank you' for your most kind and insightful review. Yes, you came to stay at the busiest time of year ( not the noisiest - that's the twice-yearly Feria weekend ! ) and I'm glad you appreciated the artistic spirit and energy that infuses the whole town during that period. It's surprising how many people... More

My wife and I stayed at Galerie Huit Easter weekend. The location is perfect - a few minutes walk from the roman theatre & stadium, central parking, and the Pllace de la Republic. . Our bedroom and sitting room were charming with a gorgeous antique door, marble fireplaces, and objects d'art galore. Julie & Lawrence were very helpful and breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed in Galerie Huit for just one night and wished we could have stayed a few more. Our room was lovely with antiques and had a nice sitting area. We looked down to the small terrace where breakfast is served.and breakfast was really good. We were greeted by Stephen when we arrived as Julia was away.... More

Dear House Guests, Thank you so much for your kind and appreciative review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Galerie Huit and that you were given a warm welcome. Yes, one of the many charms of Arles is that it is an ancient, pedestrian-friendly town - my website www.galeriehuit.com gives what I hope are clear instructions to facilitate bagagge... More

Perfect location, great building, wonderful host - this is the place to be in Arles. Galerie Huit is also an art gallery, and has a lot of character. Breakfast provided by Laurence was delicious. Even though the rooms are large and offer a lot of privacy, staying at Galerie is just like staying with friends and family. Looking forward to... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights in Arles. Galerie Huit proved to be an inspired choice for our introduction to this historically rich city. Our suite, the Marco Polo, was beautifully furnished with antiques, original doors and marble fireplaces and overlooked the narrow old street a stone's throw from the Roman theatre. Julia de Bierre has done a... More

Arles is a beautiful and ancient city, a true gem with the most amazing Roman monuments to excite the curious visitor. And Julia de Bierre’s Galérie Huit B&B is smack in the middle of it: across the road from the Roman Theater, a minute from the Colosseum, and a short stroll to Saint Trophime Cathedral and the Place de la...

My fifth stay at galerie Huit was, as usual, wonderful. Julia combines a French sens of beauty and elegance, with a British love of comfort, and her warm and generous welcome crosses all international boundaries! I've now tried all the rooms and love the fact that none of them are Hotel standardized-they contain beautiful one-of-a-kind antiques, original art pieces and... More

I was so excited when I made our reservations at Galerie Huit because it looked so beautiful in the web photos taken by the owner and our adult daugher who was with us is a photography major so staying at a gallery seemed so perfect, but we were crushed to arrive and find it looking nothing and I mean NOTHING...
