Saint Rémy de Provence - a charming Provençal town

The pretty town of Saint Rémy de Provence (or St Remy de Provence), situated in the south-east of France, is unmistakeably Provençal. Lying in the acclaimed triangle formed by Arles, Avignon and Aix En Provence, St Rémy is justifiably famed for its charm. From its ancient streets to its blue shuttered houses and tree shaded squares, St Rémy is everything you hope that a Provençal town would be... and more. It has a fascinating history, and is of particular interest to art lovers, as its links with Vincent Van Gogh are legendary.

Around town

If you take a walk around St Rémy, (and this is the best way to get to know the town, because it gives you time to appreciate all the aspects that you might otherwise miss) you will, perhaps, be struck by the number of historical buildings and ancient monuments. The town has its roots in Roman times, when it was named Glanum, and there is evidence of this period and subsequent influences everywhere you look. Sights worth seeing include the Arc de Triomphe and the Mausolée des Antiques. You can also visit the psychiatric hospital where Van Gogh painted some of his most famous works whilst undergoing treatment, and the Van Gogh Art Centre.

St Rémy is a town of light and artists... and royals

St Rémy has long attracted artists, perhaps in part due to the clarity of light that prevails in the region. This also true today, and as you wander around the town you will most likely see a good number of easels and canvases set up in the shady squares, with eager painters keen to emulate the past greats who trod these streets before them. The rich and famous love St Rémy too, and it is perhaps worth noting that the town was, for some time, a home to Princess Caroline of Monaco and her children who fled there to recover from the tragic and shocking death of her husband, Stefan Casiraghi.

Shopping and dining in St Rémy

St Rémy offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy life, and has good facilities for those for whom this means indulging in shopping and dining. There are some superb restaurants, many situated within the smart hotels that abound in this area, and the food is every bit as good as you would expect from the favoured stamping ground of the rich and royal! As for the shopping... from fashion to food, from arts to crafts and house wares, St Rémy does not disappoint. Market day is Wednesday, so don't fail to get up early enough catch one of Provence's most legendary delights.

St Rémy's other amenities

All of the normal amenities are easily accessed in St Rémy, so you have no need to leave town to find banks, hairdressers, insurance agents, schools, medical care and other necessities.

Out and about

Although St Rémy isn't situated on the coast, the Med. isn't far away, so if it's a bit of sun, sea and sand that you hanker after, you don't have to travel far. Closer to home, though, there are lots of other outdoor activities to be found. St Rémy offers a sporting menu that includes walking, cycling, horse-riding, tennis, swimming, petanque and fishing. The less sporty can find access to the gentler pursuits of arts and crafts markets and lessons, festivals and exhibitions.
