Visting here is like walking with Van Gogh. You get a real sense of the time he spent at St. Paul and how peaceful it would have been. The minute you see the olive trees you can see why he painted them. The museum is small and can be done in less than hour and you are free to walk... More

Where else in the world can you see the world almost exactly as Vincent Van Gogh saw it? His tiny room and chair, the rolling lavender fields, the peaceful courtyard and garden almost unchanged since his time here give a whole new life to the paintings we know so well. Descriptions of his life on placards on the wall, with... More

The walk in the area is worth it, you can also visit the patio for free. I decided not to pay/visit the replica of Van Gogh room.

Since first visiting St Remy in 2011, we make this an annual stop. We run and walk daily during our stay at a villa about a mile a way so we usually end one day with a late afternoon early evening visit. The premises are beautifully kept and the history and explanations are fantastic. We love Van Gogh so it... More

Let me start by saying I am a Van Gogh fan, through and through. BUT I guess the visit to St. Paul de Mausole was just average for me? I will say that maybe it spilled over, as I had an underwhelming impression of Saint Remy de Provence itself. It's a peaceful monastery, and the courtyard is beautiful. I think... More

I enjoy art, but I must admit that I am not particularly knowledgeable about Van Gogh's art with the exception of a few of the more famous pieces. I was impressed with the way the Van Gogh reproductions were displayed outside along the walkway and in the gardens. There was excellent narrative in English as well as in French describing... More

Being a life-long sufferer of depression, visiting here was inspirational. As an art and history fan, those qualities added a great deal of magnitude to my visit. If any of those three things are of interest to you, then visiting this place will be of right up your alley.

The site is a great way to understand the life long struggle of this troubled yet brilliant man. We visited before our trip to Amsterdam and the Van Gogh museum which added to our appreciation of both. If you have the opportunity to see both Van Gogh sites it will only add to your appreciation of his work.

Very somber visit and very helpful to understand his paintings and what he was feeling. We really are glad we visited. It is a beautiful place with a realistic past and how treatments for mental illness were treated in Van Gogh's day.

We were in the area and I have always been fascinated by Van Gogh so we decided to visit. Parking was very easy with a lot there. The tour is self guided. Starts up a pleasant path with reproductions. You can tour the church, his bedroom, and the gardens. Some interesting information in the exhibits. Nice gift shop with works... More
