Vincent Van Gogh

Saint Rémy de Provence boasts a strong association with Van Gogh, who spent part of the last year of his life at the asylum in the town, where among others he painted the famous 'self portrait with bandaged ear'. He had been living in Arles during 1888-89, but in May 1889 he was voluntarily confined in the Asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole which is beside Saint Rémy de Provence.


Saint Rémy de Provence inspired Van Gogh, and here he was allowed the freedom to express himself through his painting, which he did prolifically during the relatively short time he spent at the Asylum. He painted more than 150 paintings including many of those for which he is most famous. There is a reconstruction of Van Gogh’s bedroom (as depicted in his famous painting) at the Asylum which you can visit, but it is worth noting that Van Gogh’s painting was of his bedroom where he had been living in Arles. He was released from the hospital in May 1890 and left for Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris. He shot himself on 27 July 1890 and died two days later.

There is now a guided walk around the town where you can see the locations of 21 of Van Gogh's paintings, each point marked by a reproduction of the original painting.


Dominated by the picturesque, tree-lined central square where the Mairie is located, the surrounding streets of Saint-Remy-de-Provence are awash with boutiques and art galleries as well as plenty of bars and restaurants to satisfy your appetite. Circled by the remnants of the 14th-century wall and the protective bustle of buildings, the most obvious remains are the old ‘portes’ still in use today as the entrance ways into the centre of this ancient market town.

Wednesday is a major market day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The market spreads across parking areas and squares around the northern and western parts of the Boulevards ringing the old town of Saint Rémy de Provence. If you like markets, crowds, and an active experience, Wednesday is a great day to visit. Cafés and restaurants tend to be crowded around lunch time, but the atmosphere is good.
There's a smaller market on Saturdays, with food only.

The countryside around the town is ideal for pleasant walks, with its many paths and trails bordered by olive and cypress trees. The road between St. Rémy and the autoroute (at Cavaillon, 17 km to the east) is a scenic drive out of the past: the road is lined by plane trees that are lovely and give beautiful shade during the summer.

The GR6 (Grande Randonnée) goes through St. Rémy. To the west, the GR6 climbs up the centre of the Alpilles to Baux-de-Provence, then follows the ridge to the end, and continues on northwest to Tarascon and Pont du Gard. St. Rémy to Baux-de-Provence via the GR6 is 7-8 km, starting at 60 m altitude, climbing to 313 m at the Tour de Guet, dropping to 160 m, then up to 218 m at Baux. It's probably about 3 hours each way, making it a good day hike out and back. The hills are thickly forested, wild and beautiful.

To the east, the GR6 also climbs up to the top of the Alpilles, then goes east past Eygalières and Eyguières, crossing the autoroute north of Salon-de-Provence.

Another attraction at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is the archaeological site at Glanum, next to the town and very close to the asylum. Indeed, Saint Rémy de Provence is one of the oldest towns in France, founded by the Celts more than 2,500 years ago and developed by both the Greeks and the Romans. The extensive Roman ruins at Glanum have been excavated and now provide a fascinating insight into life for the Romans 2000 years ago.

Glanum in fact predates the Romans by several centuries, but most of what we see comes from the Roman period. Among the highlights are the Arc de Triomphe and a very well preserved cenotaph featuring elaborate carvings.
