Saint Remy-de-Provence is a medieval village located 15 minutes from Eygalières. With its own Arc de Triomphe, Mausolée des Antiques and Monestary Saint Paul de Mausole, it is steeped in history and its Provencal charm can be felt while wandering down the cobbled roads, sourcing an abundance of fresh produce on market day, and sitting down for a café crème in the sun, which bathes the village for 300 days a year.
Immortalised by Vincent Van Gogh during his time there, Saint-Rèmy remains one of the most celebrated towns in Provence’s artistic story.
The stone clad streets are bustling with local artisans and craft makers expertly making a range of different objects and products made of local materials. On Wednesdays, the cobbled laneways are filled with a bustling fresh produce market, including local arts and crafts, bric-à-brac and lifestyle products.
With some of the oldest archaeological sites in Europe the ancient ruins of Glanum lie only a few minutes away. The rolling lavender fields nestled amongst the rugged Alpilles mountains make for ideal hiking and horse riding trails, as well as perfectly scouted en plein air locations. Saint-Rèmy boasts a lively festival calendar of small boutique arts and music events as well as its famous Bastille Day celebrations.
