Restaurants
L’Atelier de Jean-Luc Rabanel in Arles

This is one of Provence’s most highly regarded restaurants. There is no menu for each meal, as it is whatever the chef assembles for that day. Very modern, yet comfortable.

 

L’Esprit Culinaire in St Rémy

The gastronomic cuisine in this restaurant makes the most of the best regional ingredients and recipes. The setting is calm and elegant with a harmonious mix of traditional and modern decor. Flower-decked terrace.

Glanum was an Ancient Roman settlement. See the impressive remains of the Mausolée of Jules from 30 AC and the Triumph Arc of 1 AC, which represented together the main entrance of the city.
