Arles is going up in the world. The Van Gogh centre is pulling in the punters and new snazzy hotels have opened their doors. We particularly like L’Hotel du Cloitre. Stylistically it’s very retro and feels a little like a dreamland. There is a sense of fun everywhere. It’s centrally located, luxurious but not crazily luxurious and affordable. As a base to explore Arles and the surrounding Camargue it’s hard to ask for more.
