St. Remy de Provence

The quaint village of St Remy de Provence is located amid attractive countryside 30 kilometres south of Avignon. Wonderfully traditional and picturesque, the village features narrow streets, shady squares, excellent restaurants, and small boutiques. The best way to soak up the atmosphere here is to stop and enjoy a leisurely coffee in one of the small pavement cafes. Vincent Van Gogh produced many paintings of this beautiful surrounding countryside. You’ll find plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling to explore the wonderful scenery.

Market day in St Remy is Wednesday (morning), and this is a great time to visit, as the squares are taken over by stall-holders – it gets crowded but the market is colourful and absorbing, well worth a detour.
