Come and discover the riches of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. This small town in the Natural Regional Park of the Alpilles is blessed with culture, heritage, and festivals.
In this Provencal capital of 'art de vivre', birthplace of Nostradamus, you will enjoy: gastronomy, local products, olive oil, AOC Baux-de-Provence vineyards, craft industry, the Provencal market, artists, beautiful art galleries and shops, hikes in the wild, places which were immortalized by Van Gogh, the Roman archaeological site of Glanum, the traditional Christmas in Provence, Transhumance and other local festivals, and of course the 300 days of sun per year!
Located in the heart of the Alpilles Mountains, Saint-Rémy is a must-see in Provence. Its green, delicately flavoured valleys, its traditional, beautifully renovated houses, and its charming village streets are responsible for its success...
Simply wandering through its narrow winding streets, you will come across pretty, antique fountains, small, shaded squares, home to pleasant restaurant terraces, and elegant shops.
From the Place Jean Jaurès to the start of the old town, you will see many private mansions (most of which have been converted into museums and art galleries), convents, chapels, and superb residences dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
The beauty of the landscapes and the quality of the lighting have inspired many artists, writers, and painters.
The most famous is without a doubt Van Gogh, who did more than 150 paintings in the Saint-Rémy-de-Provence countryside.
A hike around the different places who found their way onto Van Gogh's canvas will show you the mountains around Saint Rémy, the wheat and poppy fields, the olive trees, and cypresses, which remain untouched after more than 100 years.
Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a historical city, was built on one of the most ancient archaeological sites in all of Europe. The ruins of Glanum, founded in the third century B.C., and taken by the Romans under Julius Caesar, constitute impressive vestiges of the different civilisations that succeeded each other here. You can visit the vast Roman baths, the long residential avenue, the temple, and the natural springs in this true Gallo-Roman town founded 10 to 30 years B.C. Two important monuments can be seen near the site: the Triumphal Arch and the Mausoleum of the Julii.
Amateurs of ancient architecture, art, and small shops will be delighted by Saint-Rémy. For the last few years, the nice properties around Saint-Rémy and the shaded terraces of the Place Jean Jaurès have attracted celebrities as well. Far from the crowded beaches, artists and celebrities can appreciate the calm and soothing atmosphere of Provence which can be found in Saint-Rémy. As soon as you get here, you will also succumb to its charm... Guaranteed!
