L’Hotel Particulier

Location: Provence | France

Price guide: £££££ £100-£200 per person per night

It’s not for no reason that Arles is where Vincent van Gogh completed many of his most famous works: this is a beautiful place, and L’Hotel Particulier is striking even by comparison to its surroundings. Set in an 18th century baroque townhouse, and surrounded by beautiful gardens dotted with lemon trees, this was originally built for the Baron de Chartrouse, and has lost none of that spirit of nobility in the centuries that have passed since.
Perfect forHistory and culture lovers.
In the knowDon’t miss the opportunity to experience the Rhône. Arles is the last town through which the famous river flows before it reaches the Mediterranean.

Hotel Overview

Where

The Roquette district of the ancient town of Arles in Provence.

Rooms at L’Hotel Particulier

L’Hôtel Particulier’s rooms and suites reflect the opulence of the house’s exterior, with classical décor which is extravagant but tasteful, and is updated with modern, stylish touches. Rooms in the main house are often vast, with high ceilings and airy interiors; those in the outbuildings are more rustic but no less luxurious, with lantern-lit steps, wood ceilings and exposed lintels.

Food and facilities

The hotel serves breakfast, which is a simple but lovingly prepared affair of freshly-baked croissants and pains au chocolat, fresh coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. For the rest of your gastronomic needs, Arles is a treasure trove for food lovers. L’Atelier has earned two Michelin stars for its tasting menus, which pair either seven or thirteen mini masterpieces, often sourced from the chef’s own organic veggie patch, with some of the region’s most exquisite wines. For a heartier feed, head to Hostellerie du Pont de Gau, which serves up local delicacies such as petite bouillabaisse and bull steaks.

Activities at L’Hotel Particulier

Arles’ history dates back to Roman times, and the city is home to a wealth of ancient treasures and attractions. The amphitheatre remains impressively intact after 1600 years, and remains an important part of the cultural life of the town: it still plays host to fierce férias and bloody bullfights. Similarly, the Roman theatre is still in use, home to music, dance and theatrical performances throughout the summer. Arles’ Saturday market is one of the best in Europe, and represents all corners of the Mediterranean: delicious French, Greek and Spanish food is on offer, along with locally produced meat, cheese and wine. High quality ceramics and textiles are also on offer. While both of the houses in which Van Gogh lived during his time in Arles have sadly been destroyed, walking tours are available which take in places relevant to the artist and his work.
