Van Gogh was famously based at Arles towards the end of his life, and from here he escaped to St Remy for a year, interning himself at the Asylum of Saint Paul Mausol. St Remy has become almost synonymous with the troubled artist - he painted some 150 canvases inspired by the landscapes here. Indeed its artistic roots can still be seen today; there are a multitude of arts and crafts both to look at and to buy from glass blowing to sculptors to interior designers.

Other famous inhabitants include Michel de Notradame (Nostradamus) who was born in the city and Princess Caroline of Monaco lived in St. Remy for many years while her children were growing up.

There is plenty to interest history buffs too: fantastic Roman remains can be seen at the Glanum and Antiques sites

St Remy de Provence is a wonderful base for getting to know wider Provence, but it has much to recommend of its own. There is a thriving cafe society here and the streets are chock full of luxury foodie stores and restaurants, not to mention the must-go-to weekly market.
