Grand Hôtel Nord-Pinus Arles, France

“Quirky townhouse hotel frequented by bullfighters, cabaret dancers, artists and writers, in central Arles. Elegantly restored to retain its original character with a few Moorish touches. You can still imagine Picasso or Hemingway at the bohemian salon bar. Romance and history combined.”

“Once owned by a cabaret dancer and a tightrope-walking clown, this former cult hotel was the haunt of bullfighters and artists such as Picasso and Cocteau. It has been resuscitated and modernised with great taste and style by Anne Igou. Much of the decoration has an extravagant Moorish feel, and the famous yellow bar is particularly redolent of its bohemian past. A very special place to stay.”
