Saint-Rémy-de-Provence has plenty to offer. I already wrote a travelpost about Saint-Paul-de-Mausole (Van Gogh!) and about Glanum (ancient city!) and today I take you on a stroll through the centre of this pleasant town in the Alpilles.
Saint-Rémy is definitely worth a visit. There are so many things to see and do in the neighbourhood, but the town itself is also very charming so you don’t want to skip it. Below you see loads of pictures of narrow streets, colourful shutters, charming squares,…
On Wednesday morning, a lot of streets are taken by stall holders as it’s market day. There are a lot of stalls with locl products: fruit and veg, herbs, sausages, soap, cheese, jam, olives,… It all looks very delicious as you can see in the pictures below!
Finally I can recommend 2 places to rest your feet for a while: ‘Bienbon’ and ‘Les pieds dans l’eau’.
After spending a couple of hours on the market, we needed to recharge our batteries and what better place to do this then in ‘Bienbon‘?! Here you can relax all day long in the beautiful interior or at the cosy outdoor terrace. A light breakfast, a hearty lunch, a tasteful brunch? Or just a cup of coffee or a cocktail? Look no further… Bienbon has got it all covered!
My husband had a double espresso and I decided on a ‘golden milk’ which is a hot drink based on almond and coconut milk with kurkuma.We didn’t have lunch at Bienbon, but the platters we saw where definitely mouth-watering! And the nice thing is, that all is healthy, homemade and organic! Bienbon is definitely bien & bon at the same time 🙂
Les pieds dans l’eau
This place caught our eye on the very first evening of our stay in Saint-Rémy. The building is simply stunning and the outdoor terrace looks very welcoming. A couple of days later, my husband and I had an al fresco afternoon drink and we were absolutely taken by the charm this place oozes. We definitely wanted to return for diner, so we made a reservation to have diner here on the last evening of our holiday in France.
The restaurant is spread over several rooms on the first floor and is decorated in a rustic and old-fashioned way. I loved the concept of ordering platters for 2 or 4 people. The food was very tasteful and fresh and the staff was extremely welcoming.
This was the perfect way to end our fabulous holiday!
