Lovely hotel situated a 5 minute walk from main restaurants of the town. Had a really great 4 night break, with spacious room overlooking pool and breakfast terrace. Family run hotel, very helpful before we arrived and really pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. Very clean throughout, excellent breakfast and good to have secure off road parking. Can highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms with terrace are lovely

Have just stayed here for 2 nights B & B and my wife and I were delighted to enjoy such a first class stay. The standard room was of a greater size than we expected, with plenty of space and with a nice view over the pool and to the hills above. It is less than a five minute walk into the town centre where there are a multitude of places to eat on offer. There is also a car park just up a lane which is locked overnight, which was also visible from our window. Drinks and nibbles are available during the day and evening.

The staff were very friendly and anxious to help if needed, special mention of Anais for her enthusiasm and very good English.

Room Tip: Upper floors facing the pool, the more expensive ones have a balcony with table and chairs.

Nice family run hotel in a grand house. Stayed August 6 through August 12 2017
It is on the D-5 which comes up from the south. Les Baux about five miles south on this road., The hotel is just where the road splits into one way streets going into Saint Remy. The driveway to the hotel parking is just south of the split, well marked but a narrow opening with walls on either side. Leaving St. Remy, the D-571 goes north towards Avignon The D-99 runs through St. Remy from east to west. No train station in St. Remy so you need to rent a car or take a cab from Tarascon or Avignon.

Has swimming pool, large enclosed yard with lounge chairs and tables.

The breakfast area has tables outside on a patio but with plenty of tables inside in case of inclement weather. Breakfast is the standard French breakfast but you can also get omelets upon request. The host will bring coffee or tea. Decaffeinated coffee is available. The hotel will also serve wine, beer and soft drinks in the courtyard. They do not allowed you to bring your own drinks into the courtyard.

Parking is down a narrow alley in an enclosed yard with an electric gate which opens with a combination. It is usually closed at night. The family owns the house on the far side of the lot and there is plenty of coming and goings so any strangers in the lot would be seen. Spaces are marked with logs sunk in the ground or restricted by the several trees in the lot. The lot was full when we were there but we always had a space to park.

There are three third floor rooms with balconies. Each has a table and two chairs. View is of the Alpilles to the south including the hill with two holes in the top painted by Van Goth in his 1889 painting, Les Oliviers, St Remy De Provence. We could also see the top of the taller Roman funerary monument across the D-5 from the entrance to the Roman town of Glanum. Highly recommend one of the balcony rooms for the view and the pleasure of bringing your own wine and food to the balcony for an afternoon meal enjoying the view. We had room 9. No elevator. minifridge in room with beer (4 euro each for the small bottles) and water and juices. Small t.v. in room with the usual French channels plus BBC and CNBC.

There is a U express grocery store about 50 meters north of the hotel that sells beer and wine at bargain prices, as well as several near the town center. Lots of shops in town including chocolate shops if you like expensive candies. As you approach the town from the south on the D-5 you see the ancient gate beyond which are narrow pedestrian streets lined with shops. The road goes around the old town and there are several cafes on the street for lunch or dinner, but they do fill up quickly on event days. Continue on to the east and you will see some streets heading off on the south side of the road which lead to squares that also have cafes and are worth exploring especially when the main street cafes are full.

St. Remy has many restaurants and shops. It is crowded in the summer, especially in early August when they have a running of the bulls festival. Markets are on Tuesday evening with a much larger one on Wednesday morning. Town is packed on market day and since the central parking area is given over to market stalls, parking is at a premium. There is parking at the tourist information center, just north of the hotel, but it fills fast, and parking along the streets. Be sure to have parallel parking skills and the smaller your vehicle, the better.

The hotel is a short walk north to the heart of St. Remy and about a quarter mile walk south along a sidewalk to the St Paul Hospital where Vincent Van Gogh stayed recovering from an episode of mental illness. This route begins in the town of St Remy at the Musee Estrine (Estrine Museum) to St. Pauls. The Museum Estrine does not contain any of Van Gogh paintings or effects. It houses modern artists, some of whom were influenced by Van Gogh. However, the gift shop is full of Van Gogh souvenirs, prints, and posters. The Van Goth walk is marked with round brass discs planted in the sidewalks which say Vincent on them. Once on the D-5, past were it joins back into a two way street, there are panels on the east side of the road that show his paintings, some of which are placed where it is believed he painted them, although the area has changed over time and in some of the paintings he added features that did not exist there at the time. The St. Paul's hospital is basically a shrine to Van Goth and worth the visit. Entrance fee is 5 Euro per adult.

The best museum in town is the Hotel De Sade. Yes, the same family as the infamous Marquis, but not directly associated with him. It was the site of the Roman baths, the remains of which are visible, as well as a medieval house and church. Displays are of Roman finds from Glanum, including mosaics as well as displays of how Glanum has been excavated. Entry fee is 3.5 Euro per person. The building itself is worth the admission fee.

There is a plaque on the wall of the house where the famous sere, Nostradamus was born. The Nostradamus fountain had nothing to do with him and wasn't build until the 19th century. If you like Nostradamus, visit the nearby town of Salon where he lived and practiced medicine.

This is a great place to relax and unwind. Close to the busy town centre we could chill out by the pool in quiet, pleasant surroundings. The staff are all friendly, efficient and keen to help. Rooms are well proportioned, clean and air-conditioned (vital when temperatures exceed 40 degrees!). Breakfast is simple but delicious, with home-made jams and staff happy to make fantastic coffees to your specification. The hotel seems to attract guests seeking a quiet break and us parents all ensured the kids respected that. Overall a lovely experience - if we return to St Remy we will definitely stay here again!
