We loved staying at Villa Glanum. It is the sister hotel of Hotel du Soleil and both hotels are wonderful. Villa Glanum is tranquil and spotless. The pool is gorgeous and inviting after a day of touring the region. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, very clean and modern. We hope to return to this special place in a beautiful town. Thanks to Sandrine for helping us out and for accommodating us on short notice. We had a great stay and we can't recommend this hotel or Hotel du Soleil highly enough.

It was our 2nd visit to Provence, and we were looking so much forward to staying at Hotel Villa Glanum, which we have spotted 2 years ago when visiting Van Gogh's St. Paul Monastery and the Glanum. Beautifully located outside of St. Remy amidst the gardens, with a swimming pool, nice restaurant and parking on premises - how could we go wrong? We booked two garden rooms and Villa Glanum and were so excited to get there. Little did we know that since our booking, the hotel has been sold, that the renovations were under way, that the restaurant was not functioning, and that despite of the promise of free WiFi, there was no Internet in the rooms, only at the reception area. But that was no big deal comparing to what happened to us next. When we arrived, it was a chilly evening, and the heating in the rooms was not functioning. We were tired from a long drive from Languedoc, but had to wait for the repairman to arrive and attempt to fix the heating. After going through one room after another, he receptionist was finally able to find the ones with fixable heater. We happily unpacked, settled, and were ready to go out and have dinner when we discovered that the door locks in both rooms are not aligned and we cannot lock the rooms. After half an hour to futile efforts (a lovely French couple staying at the main house, was trying to help us, but unsuccessfully), we went to the reception to ask for help, only to discover that the receptionist is gone for the night, the reception hall is locked, and there is NO EMERGENCY PHONE # LEFT FOR US TO CALL IN CASE OF EMERGENCY! We could not believe what was going on! Finally, after more than an hour trying, our husbands were able to lock the doors, and we departed for dinner. When we got back to the hotel, it was past 11 pm. We were very tired - it's been a long day - and ready to go to bed. But...We were unable to get into our rooms! It was impossible to unlock the doors to either of them!!! Again, the locks were not properly adjusted. And, of course, there was NO ONE at the reception, and there was NO emergency number left to call and ask for help. We felt totally ridiculous, being unable to get into our rooms and standing outdoors on a chilly night under light drizzle, not knowing what to do! After midnight, I was ready to call the Police so they could locate the owner to let us in. While I was trying to figure out how to call the Police, at half past midnight, our husbands finally were able to unlock the doors. We were totally exhausted after such a nightmarish experience! In the morning, we told the owner that we are moving out and asked her to find us another hotel to stay. To be fair, she was kind enough to call around and quickly found us a good hotel in St. Remy. HOWEVER: while renovations are not completed, Internet not connected, heating not working, and closets in rooms covered with construction dust, let alone locks not being properly adjusted, checked, and double-checked, not to mention the absence of night porter/help and not even emergency phone number available, the rooms at Villa Glanum should NOT be rented to tourists until the renovation is completed: the hotel is outside of town, and there is nowhere to turn for help.

Some background: St Remy de Provence is a delightful small French town, and Glanum was a roman city for a couple of thousand years, now being excavated. Hotel Villa Glanum is perfectly positioned between the two: maybe a 10 minute walk to St Remy where you can explore --among the shops and bakeries--the house where Nostradamus was born. The Villa Glanum is maybe 1/10 mile from the Glanum excavations, where you walk in the steps of the Romans. Actually, I picked up that most likely today's Villa Glanum was built atop what were the "suburbs" of old Glanum. (No, we got no ghostly vibes in the night!) One more bit of background: today's Villa Glanum is literally across the road from the mental hospital where Van Gogh stayed--a year or so, as I recall. Even walking past you can see the fields, trees and mountains he painted while there. Now to the main point: Villa Glanum is a wonderful quiet respite while touring Provence. We spent two nights in a a sort of cottage with private shaded terrace. The heated pool was wonderful after days touring the area, including Arles. See the sights, then enjoy your evenings. Breakfast buffet included a magnifique quiche one day. Room was well-kept, good shower, excellent mattresses. Staff delightful.

We really enjoyed our three-day stay at Villa Glanum. I was initially concerned about it's distance from the center of town (about 1km), but was glad for that distance after dinner each night as it gave us a chance to walk off some of the meals we ate. Its located right across from a sanatorium where van Gogh spent his last year of work, and about 200 meters from Glanum, a former Roman city that was an important crossroads in southern France. The staff were very hospitable, the room was small but well appointed, and we took advantage of the pool and breakfast each day. The petit dejeuner was thoughtful and very pleasant to eat in the garden area. If we return to St Remy we will stay here again.

The hotel is just nearby the Glanum, the archaeological site and the hospital that housed Van Gogh during several years, just enough out of the vibrant and busy center of St Remy. The room was lovely, spacious enough and well decorated (not overdone, just simply). Facilities are nice eventhough the TV had a sound issue after 30min of use. The pool seemed lovely and inviting but we got so busy in getting to St Remy and other nice places around that we did not take a dip. Seems to be the right spot for a quiet retreat though. The staff is really nice and helpful and the ambiance is friendly as soon as you step in. The location is so great to either go shopping or eating in the center, walk in the Alpilles just right behind the hotel. Once used to the small roads to avoid the busy center, you can access any of them to reach the nearby towns. An excellent address at good value.
