DESTINATIONS France Provence

Under the sun in Arles

Arles is a sunny and typical beautiful town in Provence, South of France. I like to go there in summer even if the sun is burning. Generally, we go together with my mom for a one day trip to see an exhibition, sometimes in the Van Gogh Foundation. But the best was actually to walk, ice-cream in one hand, in the small sunny streets and discover the old town. When you are not home often, it’s nice to remember that there are beautiful things to see close from home, Provence, where I come from, is a gorgeous land.

After the Van Gogh exhibition, we found the famous local bookshop Actes Sud, a maze of books, notebooks and decoration. Surprising enough, at the back of the bookstore, there is a spa and a cinema.

#Cementtilespassion

Arles is an ancient town, full of surprises. Open your eyes, and contrary to what we’ve been taught, stare at your feet while walking because you might see nice things. Like these ancient cement tiles for example, on the doorsteps of a entire street, a great occasion for a photo serie !

A detour in St Rémy de Provence

Before going home, we went to the nice village of St Rémy de Provence, same Provence style, but even more typical. Fountains at the corner of the streets, bunch of lavender in shops, and so many colors everywhere, it was nice and peaceful.

Foutas trend, these beach towels you can see everywhere, has also invaded St Rémy, I don’t know the origin of these fabrics, but they were everywhere in stores.
