Saint Rémy de Provence
Saint Remy de Provence remains unspoiled by the many savvy tourists who visit there every summer to enjoy her quaint architecture and lovely tree-shaded squares, fabulous restaurants, and gastronomic specialty shops. This is home to one of the most popular weekly outdoor markets in all of Provence.
Your perfect day here begins with a visit to the market, some boutique shopping, lunch in a typical cafe; and not to be missed - a tour of Saint Paul de Maussole, where Van Gogh spent one year of his life and produced some of his most treasured works. Saint Remy is surrounded by farmland, olive groves and wine vineyards - adjacent to Les Alpilles regional park. So although it remains a buzzing place to be, within moments you are in a quiet, sycamore tree-lined road surrounded by beautiful countryside. You are closer to paradise here than almost anywhere else in Provence!
