Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus, Arles

Having been the inspiration for Van Gogh's iconic 'Café Terrace at Night', the Place du Forum is the marvellous and historic setting for the Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus. Of a classically French design, exteriors are adorned with terracotta features, wrought iron details and shuttered windows. Interiors are intimate and exude an intriguing style, where traditional, opulent and stylish design features are combined with contemporary pieces. Views look out on ageing terraced properties, coloured with alternating hues. The hotel's history is tangible, and evidence of its prominent guests is scattered throughout the hotel to impart a feeling of its fashionable 1950s-60s heyday. Some rooms have barely been altered since being occupied by such illustrious guests as Picasso and Hemmingway. Continental breakfasts are available at the bar and salon, where French cuisine may be enjoyed for lunch and dinner. But beyond the boundaries of the hotel, guests have the opportunity to discover neat alleyways and squares bustling with life and culture variety galore.

The journey and how you get there

For a holiday to Grand Hotel Nord Pinus, our clients fly to Marseille or Nice and then usually have the use of a hire-car for the duration of the holiday, or they arrive in their own car on a self-drive holiday, often as part of a multi-centre touring holiday (we would include a Eurotunnel crossing or a ferry crossing, depending on the itinerary), or they arrive by train, having taken the Eurostar London to Paris or Lille, and then the TGV to Avignon, Aix-en-Provence or Nice. On some dates there is a direct service of the Eurostar from London to Avignon. From the railway station, if you are visiting more than one hotel or want to explore the region, we recommend having a hire-car. We will arrange this for you.

About Provence

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Provence, the land which is the ancient province of the Romans, offers a rich tapestry of landscapes, culture and traditions. From the sunflower fields of Van Gogh`s Arles, to the sandy marshes of the Camargue, from the Cezanne like landscapes of Aix inland to the olive groves and lavender beds that surround the perched hill top villages, and finally to the dramatic coastline of the azure Mediterranean where the sandy beaches, craggy corniches and fishing villages have been transformed into a sophisticated holiday playground you experience a multitude of contrasting and complementary senses and images. The perfumes of lavender, thyme, rosemary, citrus, pine and olive mingle in the air and the light is bright and clear. Add to all these sensations a wonderful climate, good food and local wine and unlimited sporting and sightseeing activities and you can understand why Provence is not just an ideal holiday destination but a romantic way of life. Provence still has miles of open road across country, tiny, sleepy villages, dramatic hills and craggy peaks, beautiful, sense enriching panoramas and aromas all waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

Highlights of Provence

Cultural highlights include santons, Souleiado Provençal fabrics, herbs and lavender, wine and olive oil, melons and pastis, boules and berets.
