A walk around the dreamy St Remy de Provence…

by


St Remy de Provence is one of the oldest towns in France.  Dreamy it certainly is………..and it is everything that one would expect from a Provencal town.   It’s a good size too …..perfect for an easy meander around in a morning or afternoon.  Little squares, cooling fountains, creamy white and pink shuttered houses and a fabulous sprinkling of cozy bistros. (It reminds me a little of a Provencal cotswold town in England).  It’s a perfect place to stay and relax!  I’d visited before with kids in tow……. so it was only a quick spin around the town then;  but this time I was with my mum so plenty of gentle strolling and exploring the maze of little streets.   We enjoyed a coffee at the truly atmospheric Cafe des Arts where the works of local painters are exhibited and later a lunch at La Cantina; gorgeous salads and pizza.  Highly recommended!!!

Oh how I love this little place… a mix of rural yet sophisticated surrounded by the Alpilles mountain range (small craggy mountains) where the light is incredible!  (Van Gogh painted many works of art here).  The market is on a Wednesday morning so I will return to the smell of garlic and olives and enjoy the bustle of that now familiar French scene to which I have become so accustomed.   Fifteen minutes drive away is Maussane les Alpilles; a village that I highly recommend to see.  Make sure you go to my favourite restaurant there; La Fleur de Thym.
