ShoreTrips says...

Your journey begins with a relaxing one hour drive, by both highway and through the scenic surroundings of the Alpilles area, before you arrive at the lovely Les Baux de Provence.

An imposing 12th-century castle dominates the pleasant little perched village. Les Baux, a rock top fortress and village which belonged in the Middle Ages to the rebellious family of “Les Baux,” is well-restored and well-tended, and the amazing big castle (rebuilt in the 16th century and restored in 1960) gives the village an ever-present mood of medievality. Here it's easy to imagine knights and ladies and even dragons. See the restored houses and cobble-stone streets lined with souvenir shops; discover the small santon museum and the castle if you like.

After Les Baux, you will drive to Saint-Rémy and make your way on foot through this quiet village. Take some time for shopping, and stop for lunch (on your own). Just outside the town you will find two well-preserved Roman monuments: an arch of triumph and a Mausoleum, both of which you will visit after lunch. You will also visit Van Gogh’s psychiatric hospital, where he stayed for one year after cutting his ear off, and where he painted his most famous paintings: Starry Night, The Irises, Olive Tree Fields. Get a chance to visit the reconstruction of his room before driving back to the harbor (visit NOT included).
