The town of Arles can seem somewhat threatening when you're walking through the old dark streets and alleys at night. We never had a problem but it wasn't a welcoming place. Hotel Particulier was an Oasis. It's a hidden gem that doesn't reveal itself until the old wooded door swings open and you find yourself in the middle of a completely enclosed courtyard with beautiful trees, plants, flowers and water effects. Our room was very large and beautifully decorated. The staff did everything possible to make us feel like we were at home once we stepped inside the gate. If we ever visit Arles again we will definitely stay at Hotel Particulier!
