L'Hotel Particulier, Arles
Stylish boutique hotel that famously evicted Vincent Van Gogh
Gorgeous hotel in the centre of the Roman town of Arles. Designed to within an inch of it's life, this 18th century country house has 13 rooms decked out in white billowing fabrics and French country furniture. Think Ibiza-esque.
The exterior includes a stylish swimming pool and terraces, and dinner can be arranged if requested in advance.
There are also spa facilities for an extra cost, open to guests and non-guests alike. A bonus for Arles is the free car parking if you're doing a road trip.
Don't forget to explore Arles with its amazing Roman ruins and it's Van Gogh connection.
Who should go
A chic and elegant city break.
Situated in the heart of Arles, just a short walk from the Amphitheatre. In fact, everything from restaurants, to bars and shops are easily reached on foot from the hotel, making it a popular option.
The hotel's stylish pool is fairly small and more for a refreshing glide than an active swim. Set slight back from the terrace surrounded by boarded green gardens.
The bar opens out onto the terrace and the pool area. It has a minimalist interior with clean comfortable white sofas and white washed walls. The bar serves light snacks food until 9:00 p.m.
There is no restaurant. However, the pool bar serves light meals and snacks to keep hunger at bay without leaving the hotel.
- "Occupying an 18th-century pavilion, Arles's only five-star hotel was the last of the grand private town houses built in the center of town. Behind its monumental gate are ancient yew trees and a courtyard with teak lounges and a limestone-built lap pool. Guests congregate here for morning coffee or the first aperitif of the evening. Each bedroom is decorated individually and elegantly in creamy tones with gold accents, giving the rooms a bright, clean look." - Frommers
- "Despite the grand surroundings and attention to detail, the atmosphere at L'Hôtel Particulier is relaxed and informal, thanks largely to the easy charm of Mme Pagès and her staff. However, don't let yourself be so seduced by the hotel and its spa, that you forget to explore Arles." - Conde Nast Traveller
- "L'Hôtel Particulier is a chic and stylish Arles hotel, where you can relax in the Space Spa with a massage or sauna. A pool is set in the beautiful gardens and the restaurant serves excellent Provençal cuisine. The spacious rooms of this boutique hotel are designed with contemporary flair and elegance." - Mr and Mrs Smith
