Things to do on holiday in Arles, France

The medieval feel in Arles in undeniable, although many of the most famous historical sites date back to the Roman Empire. The narrow, twisting streets of the centre of town are awash with delightful cafes and mouth watering smells emanating from Arles’ restaurants, but most impressively, many of the Roman monuments, like the coliseum and theatre are actually located inside the town, blending in perfectly with buildings built many centuries later. The Roman Arena is so well preserved that it is still the host to bull running and bull fighting festivals to this day! Arles was one of the Roman Empire’s richest cities in Gaul, and as a result, the Roman monuments here are lavish and elegant, having stood proudly for many years. The 4th century Roman baths of Constantin and the Alyscamps burial grounds are also well worth investigating from any self catering Arles villa, apartment or holiday home.

Outside of the main centre, Arles tourism is a relaxed and laid back affair, as the town is filled with tree lines avenues, large parks and plenty of benches from which to rest your feet and admire the view. Arles villas are a great base for walking holidays too. The river valley and the marshy delta known as the Camargue offer extensive walking, often leading up into the foothills of the Alpilles Mountains. There are also three excellent self guided tours around the town, navigated by using the coloured plaques which adorn the town. You can choose from the medieval tour, van Gogh tour or the Antique Arles tour. Arles also benefits from having 9 riding schools offering tours into the countryside and a range of mountain biking centres, information on which is readily available from the Arles tourism offices.

Art and culture have always been important to the inhabitants of Arles, with Van Gogh and Picasso being listed among the town’s most famous long term visitors. Each summer, photographers flock to self catering Arles villas, attracted by the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie.

The property was very comfortable and provided everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The kitchen was well equipped . For those expecting U.K. TV there is only news programmes from sky and CNN, but hundreds of German channels. The only downside for us was the driveway approach inside the property leading to the parking which was heavily rutted and requires a little investment to fill all the holes in!

I guess we were lucky with the October sunshine and the comfortable temperature and although I personally ventured into the pool only once, my three grandsons made full use of this facility. The house itself was ideal for the six of us, plenty of space inside and out allowing the kids to run around and make noise and me to find a quieter space with a book and a glass of wine. (The fridge space was excellent and coped well with our wine rations). Lots to see and do in the area. In Saintes Maries de la Mer the kids found a safe beach and I found excellent seafood/ The ornithological park was a most enjoyable visit en route. Wine in Chateauneuf du Pape, Haribo Museum in Uzes, Football in Marseille and Roman archeology in Nimes and Arles filled a great week.
