Arles, a city with a rich history
At the foot of the Alpilles and at the doorstep of the Camargue with its plains and rich wetlands, the city of Arles has an exceptional location. This strategic position has been exploited through the ages, with the first traces of human occupation pre-dating the founding of Marseille by the Greeks in 600 BC.
The grandeur of Arles occurred during the Roman era. Numerous remarkable remains from that period are the basis for the city’s cultural reputation, attracting tens of thousands of visitors annually.
Close to Arles, les Baux de Provence
Just a few minutes away from Arles you will find one of the jewels of Provence: the village of Les Baux-de-Provence. Perched on a limestone cliff, it dominates the valley of Les Baux with its fairytale scenery. This is where Baumanière Les Baux de Provence welcomes its guests, complementing the magical setting with elegance and simplicity.
This former Provencal farmhouse is nestled in a shaded 5-acre park. In the early 1960’s it was transformed into a five-star hotel by the owners of Baumanière Les Baux-de-Provence, who were already established in Les Baux-de-Provence with l’Oustau de Baumanière.
