Provence's artists, on the trail of painters and filmmakers

Provence is a place where art comes to life. Its landscapes and light inspired Paul Cézanne in Aix-en-Provence, Van Gogh in Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the Lumière brothers in La Ciotat and Pagnol in Aubagne. From Cézanne's studio to the Bibemus Quarries that were so inspiring, visit sites on which the painters left an indelible impression. Van Gogh painted almost 300 works in 15 months, his most prolific period, in Arles! From museums to iconic landscapes, this 4-day tour promises a journey of Provence through film and the fine arts.

Traditional La Montagnette

From Saint-Rémy circling back to Saint-Rémy, take a tour through some of Provence's most traditional villages. After lunch, it's on to the museum dedicated to the French poet Frédéric Mistral (Maillane). Next put your nose to the test at the museum of aromas and perfume (Gravescon) before admiring the candles produced at the Premonstratensians' factory and 'indiennes' (printed textile) at the Provençal fabric museum (Tarascon). Once you've had a look at Saint-Marcellin Chapel (Boulbon), head across to Barbentane and Cristine Darc's santons (figurines) before making your way to the Frigolet distillery. Enjoy the late afternoon sun over Château des Comtes de Provence in Reynard before returning to Saint-Rémy and visiting the Alpilles museum.

Essential Saint Rémy - Provençal charm

It's worth devoting an entire day to Saint-Rémy to fully immerse yourself in the tastes and culture of Provence: from wine (Château Romanin) and olive oil (Moulin du Calanquet) to the region's art and history (Saint-Paul de Mausole Monastery and Glanum). In the heart of the Alpilles, the town, put on the map for being an important source of inspiration to Vincent Van Gogh, is replete with treasures. Lovers of old buildings will adore the town centre and ancient ruins. And foodies will be in their element at Les Terrasses de l’Image that serves original, local fare.
