Lovely rooms in a graceful house with a stunning garden in the middle of Arles, the cultural and historic heart of Provence
This 18th-century house overflows with elegance and style. Enter through the garden, where a pebble-dashed terrace lies under lemon trees dripping with fruit. On one side, candle lanterns flank a thin strip of pool; on the other, smart cushioned loungers are covered in white towels. It's a great little refuge. Urns of sculpted box hedge stand on pillars of stone, flowerbeds run along mellow walls and hold colour all year round.
Approach the house - it was built for the Baron de Chartrouse - and smartly dressed tables and cast iron chairs mingle under the generous shade of a pine tree. Inside you’ll find a chic reception room with white panelled walls and 18th-century antiques, a salon with Barcelona chairs for the morning papers, and a small but cool spa in the vaulted cellar for massage, sauna or hammam. Magnificent rooms are split between the main house and the old stables. Step out the side gate and you dive into wonderful Arles. Brilliant.
