The Provence region
With its vast open spaces that are home to herds of black bulls with distinctive curved horns, slender silhouettes of pink flamingoes and galloping white horses, the Camargue is a unique place. This natural habitat has been preserved thanks to the creation of the National Reserve in 1927 and the Regional Nature Park (85 000ha) in 1970. You can learn more at the Musée de la Camargue. Les Stes-Maries-de-la-Mer and its church-fortress is an ideal starting point for exploring the region and the Étang du Vaccarès lake.
Les Baux de Provence
Standing out from the Alpilles, the village of Les Baux is set on a stark rocky spur 900m long and 200m wide with vertical ravines on either side. A fortified castle, destroyed by Richelieu in 1632, continues to keep watch over the old stone houses which blend in so wonderfully with this extraordinary site. A magical experience is to be had strolling through the village streets (Place St Vincent, Hôtel Porcelet), as is taking in the view from the keep over the Aix region, Sainte Victoire, the Luberon, Mt Ventoux and the Cévennes.
Les arènes de Nîmes
The Roman amphitheatre at Nimes is the best preserved anywhere. Dating from the late 1C and early 2C, it measures 133m by 101m and could accommodate 24 000 people. Its exterior presents an attic storey above two levels of 60 arcades each (21m). The Visigoths turned it into a fortress and it was a village of 700 inhabitants in the 18C. They left in 1809, allowing for restoration of the building to its original purpose. Two multimedia displays explain everything on gladiators and bullfighting.
Le palais des papes
This 15 000m Palais des Papes is made up of the Old Palace and the New Palace. The former, a fortress with austere architecture, was commissioned by Benoît XII in 1334. Artist and prodigy, Clément VI, grand prince of the Church, must have found it rather stern-looking, as in 1342 he commissioned the New Palace (Jean de Louvres). The Tour de la Garde-Robe and two new buildings enclosed the main courtyard (until then open to the public). Although the exterior changed little, the interior was splendidly decorated by a team of artists under first Simone Martini then Matteo Giovanetti.

"A Delightful Apartment in a Perfect Location!"
What a charming 3-bedroom apartment in one of the best locations in the historic part of Arles -- just off the Forum gathering-spot where VanGogh painted his famous Bonne Nuit Cafe scene!
We were first greeted by the incomparable petite, vivacious Nelly who manages the apartment and owns the gift shop just across the street. Nelly was delightfully friendly, talkative and helpful (although her English is limited). She takes a personal interest in her vacation renters and does everything to make one feel happy and comfortable. She greets us from her shop each morning and evening or when riding her bicycle en route to her business.
The apartment was very well equipped with all of the kitchen appliances, utensils and cookware we could possibly want. We did need instructions, however, on how to use the washing machine (in a bathroom) and the oven which are quite different than North American appliances. Each of the three bedrooms has french doors/ windows which open up to either a courtyard or the narrow street out front, allowing a lovely breeze come through the room.
A real bonus for this particular apartment is that it has a telephone which we were able to use to make free long-distance calls to landlines in the USA or to any type of telephone in France! A real convenience and cost-saver.
The apartment is perfectly located just off the Forum which is THE gathering spot for Arles residents and travelers who frequent the many cafes in this busy square. Everything else in this beautifully historic city is within easy walking distance -- the Rhone River bank, the Roman Arena and Theatre, shopping and several very good restaurants.
Be aware that linen/ towel rental is an extra fee -- which is typical of French vacation rentals.
The owner was always accessible by phone if we had questions or special requests. They speak excellent English and did everything possible to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. We would return again without hesitation. And the weekly rental rate is VERY reasonable, considering the ideal central location and the 3 bedroom/ 2 bath space. A charming and very French home-away-from-home in every respect! Tres jolie!
