St Paul de Mausole is an asylum / old abbey, on the outskirts of St Remy de Provence, where Van Gogh was a patient from May 1889, until May 1890. He spent much of his time here confined to the grounds, and hence the hospital and its setting are eerily familiar from his paintings. From its tree-lined avenue entrance, through... More

It is a magical place. You can feel van Gogh presence there. It is beautiful. But here is the catch: when we went there the weather was nice and all plants were blooming. If there were no plants and there was a rainy day the impression could be quite different. This place is not huge so all these components: museum,... More

A lovely couple of hours spent here seeing where Van Gogh spent a year. Very interesting, beautiful garden courtyard, lavender field in back. Many posters of Van Gogh paintings that were painted when he was there. The day we were there it was not crowded (don't know if that's usual) and that made it very serene.

The 5 euro entrance fee is money well spent. You relive the atmosphere of Vincent's days and how he lived in this hospital for over a year. Vincent's room is a rebuilt from the famous picture when he lived in Arles, but is pretty fake, as you can not visit the original room he stayed in. Gardens with irises and... More

Wow. Wonderful place. Learned about Van Gogh. Loved the small chapel, the cloisters, the garden (lavender!). CROWDED though and only one restroom. Price is right and I bet on a slow day the place would be simply amazing.

This was worth the visit for the reproductions of Vincent Van Gogh's artwork, the history of his stay and the field of lavender out the back. There is a gift shop selling all things Van Gogh as well. It is an easy walk from St Remy.

I walked to St. Paul de Mausole the location of Vincent Van Gogh's stay where he was treated for mental illness. This was a great way to gain some insight into the mental state of a brilliant artist and to have a glimpse of the inspiration of many of his paintings.

Simple and beautiful. Peaceful to a fault. This place is not to be missed. If my wife has her way we won't wait another 17 years to visit.

I'm so glad we paid the Euros to visit St. Paul de Masole. It's so special to actually be at the place where Van Gogh painted. There is also an interesting history of the treatment of mental illness throughout the years, written in both French and English.
