Saint Remy-de-Provence is a medieval village located 12 minutes from Maussane. With its own Arc de Triomphe, Mausolée des Antiques and the Monastery Saint Paul de Mausole, it is steeped in history and its Provençal charm can be felt while wandering the boutique shops, specialised food stores, galleries, restaurants and cafes.
Weaving your way through the cobbled lanes of the village’s inner circle, these hidden gems await to be found. Every Wednesday morning, the stone clad streets are bustling with a fresh produce market, local artisans and craft makers. Life musicians are serenading on every street corner, enhancing the atmosphere of this wonderful tradition.
The poppy with her blackened heart makes her debut with a folly of red. Oleander in petals of poisoned pink bewitch with their subtle beauty. The delicate cluster of almond blossom bears its flower on a naked stem.

Take a walk down the Van Gogh trail, tracing the steps of the artist, and view his bedroom in Saint Paul de Mausole, the recognisable Cypress trees, Irises in bloom, almond blossoms and the Alpilles landscapes that inspired some of his most renowned paintings.
With some of the oldest archaeological sites in Europe the ancient ruins of Glanum lie only a few minutes away. The rugged Alpilles mountains make for ideal hiking and horse riding trails, as well as perfectly scouted en plein air locations. Saint-Rèmy hosts a lively festival calendar of small boutique arts and music events as well as its famous Fête de la Transhumance in May, Bastille Day and Christmas celebrations.
