St. Paul de Mausole

Psychiatric centre which treated Van Gogh after he cut off his ear.

Reviewed By liefie73 - Walchwil - Switzerland

If you are interested in art and know a bit about Vincent Van Gogh's life and painting then you can't miss this place - takes you back to the few year the artist stayed here in treatment and painted so much - unbelievable connection to his paintings.

Reviewed By Nina S - Tallinn

The site includes very old remains of the old city and there is not that much to see - just stones with explanations and need to use a lot of imagination. Ticket is expensive, 8 euros. If you are not deeply inteterested in history, just look the ancient gate and move on.

Wednesday morning market

Reviewed By Eat-pray-love-life - Toronto

The centre of St Remy is covered with vendors selling everything from clothing and shoes to fruits and vegetables to soaps, knives and much much more. Very pleasant, the vendors aren't pushy, and the prices are reasonable.

Les Antiques

Reviewed By Bill D - Vancouver, Canada

A great view of history, B.C.!
This two monuments are just incredible pieces of Ancient (BC) history! The mausoleum is a tribute from Augustus to commemorate the deaths of two grandsons... The Arc de Triomphe another marvel of BC history! The two stood at the entrance to the old city of Glanum, so if that's where you're headed, stop here first! There's a parking lot right beside, but it's an easy walk from the old city of St Remy. Not to be missed!

Chateau Romanin

Last massif before the Mediterranean Sea, the Alpilles are lighted up with thousands of glints. On its northern side, between Saint- Rémy-de-Provence and Eygalières, nature has fortuitously drawn a triumphant "V". A geological breach that creates a dynamic and exceptional relief. Perhaps you might behold the gliders' serene ballet above the ruins of a 13th century castle. You have just arrived, indeed, at Château Romanin. In the middle of the mythical and historic Provence, discover a majestic and unique vineyard, cultivated according to the rhythm of nature and biodynamic methods. Embodied by an ancient castle and a modern cellar, Château Romanin is protected and magnified by a real underground Cathedral carved out of rock. Delight yourself with a tour, a wine tasting in the cellar.

I visited Romanin with a group of friends and being from Australia we had forgotten the French operating hours so we arrived 7 minutes before they stopped for the long lunch - so keep that in mind!
Being one of the bigger operators the service wasn't warm and welcoming with the lady making it clear that there wasn't time for tastings as they would be closing soon - with a little communication we managed to get a single tasting having travelled to get there and we were planning to but which we still did
The lady wasn't able to recommend anything local that may be open either despite us finding a place 5 minutes down the road
Having said all that I'm sure if you were organised and went that it would be lovely with a good aspect of the valley and I'm sure more to see than ourselves
We went to Terres Blanches who were amazing and very welcoming though much smaller, still a wonderful experience - service
Of course I understand local custom but good service is still just a smile and a suggestion away

Musee des alpilles

Situe dans le centre historique de Saint-Remy-de-Provence, le musee des Alpilles est installe dans l'hotel Mistral de Mondragon, ancien hotel particulier d'epoque Renaissance. Classe Monument historique depuis 1862, le batiment d'une grande qualite architecturale, est construit d'une admirable cour interieure. La visite de ce lieu unique permet de mieux comprendre les paysages actuels, naturels et humains, de cette partie de la Provence qui s'etend entre le Rhone, la Durance et le massif des Alpilles. Promenade dans le temps et dans l'espace, l'exposition permanente evoque diverses facettes insoupconnees ou mal connues du patrimoine regional : de l'Hypselosaurus, gentil dinosaure qui jadis frequenta la contree, au costume traditionnel et a la tauromachie de type camarguais en passant par la culture et le commerce du chardon cardere, du pavot somnifere et des graines de semence. Des oeuvres internationales, signees Vincent van Gogh ou Albert Gleize, sont nees ici. Mais a cote existe aussi le travail souvent remarquable de createurs discrets, anonymes ou de notoriete locale, sur lesquels le musee souhaite egalement attirer l'attention : ex voto deposes aux XVIIIe et XIXe siecles dans les chapelles, cannes et devidoirs ouvrages, santons en terre crue, etonnantes enluminures d'Augustin Gonfond. Le cabinet d'arts graphiques et photographiques ainsi que l'atelier de typographie et de gravure traduisent par ailleurs l'orientation de l'etablissement sur les oeuvres sur papier et la gravure contemporaine.

This small museum is housed in an interesting historical building. The museum is not only running an interesting exhibition about a post impressionist painter, Jean Baltus but also provides useful information about the building itself, the town and region and archeological finds. The presentation of the paintings and photographs has been done in an esthetical manner. Lovely poems in French also adorn the walls (although not every nuance would have been picked up by non-native visitors like me). In short, the museum is well worth a visit!

We were lucky finding a parking space in the lot adjacent to the Office de Tourisme. The agent provided recommendations for restaurants serving local cuisine and highlights of Saint Remy. Quick and efficient, but rather too busy for attention to detail.

Located 5 minutes away from the city center this chocolatier shop offers great quality chocolate produced by the owner. You can find chocolate cream, chocolate bars as well pieces of chocolate. The flavoured chocolate are great and the flavors are well balanced. They offer small bites to try the chocolate. The staff speaks English language which is not easy in France.

An excellent winery respectful of nature and biodiversity. The shop is discreet compared to some others in the area but beautifully decorated. The manager, Isabelle, is friendly, motivated and professional. We discovered the wine through a local restaurant about 6 years ago.
