    Our opinion

    A valuable addition to our range of hotels in Provence, the Hôtel Jules César offers unrivalled access to the beautiful sights of Arles, as well as the lavender and sunflower fields of Provence.

    Hotel description

    The Hôtel Jules César is a five-star boutique property just outside the city of Arles in Provence, that prides itself on its welcoming and sophisticated ambience. The exterior, with its lower-floor columns, architrave, and wide steps, reflects the Roman implications of the hotel’s name. The golden-stone walls are atmospherically lit up in the evenings, which adds to the charm of the surroundings. To the left of the front door, as you approach, is a beautiful carving adorned with Latin text. As you enter, however, this historic style is merged with bold modern colours, striking design, and a touch of contemporary grandeur. Bright feature walls appear in every room, accompanied by traditional dark wood furnishings, as well as colourful chairs and white-clothed tables in the dining room. In the Lou Marqués Restaurant, named after Marquis Folco de Baroncelli-Javon, you can enjoy three meals a day, each wholly inspired by French ingredients, flavours, and cuisine. The menu reflects the changing seasonal produce in and around Provence. During the summer months, it is also possible to dine on the picturesque terrace. Another excellent feature of the hotel is the Spa Cinq Mondes, where classic and innovative treatments from around the world have been compiled into luxurious wellness programmes. The treatment rooms feature the same bold colours as the rest of the hotel, but with designs, wall murals, and paintings that evoke the Roman heritage of Arles. Finally, you come to your room. Every guestroom is completely unique, each with a new pattern, colour palette, and driving design focus. In some, textured wallpaper covers the wall behind the headboard; in others, a striking piece of antique furniture will break up an otherwise sleek, modern room. In many, a bold piece of artwork will add character; but, in all the rooms, the views out the windows offer a new perspective on the city of Arles or the floral courtyards and outdoor pool of the hotel grounds. In the Junior Suites, the individual style of the hotel’s designer, Christian Lacroix, really comes into its own, making the most of the original features. The Hôtel Jules César is a hotel of truly unique style and charm, that remains totally in-keeping with the main attraction of this part of Provence: the ancient city of Arles.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    The hotel is very well situated for visiting some of the key attractions in Arles, including the Constantine Roman Baths, the cryptoporticus in the Roman Forum, and the Saint-Trophime church and cloisters, all of which pay testament to the rich Roman and mediaeval history that exists here. To witness the buildings that played a great part in Van Gogh’s story, visit the Hotel-Restaurant Carrel, the Café de la Gare, and the Yellow House, where Van Gogh stayed for a while during his year in Arles.

    9- and 18-hole golf courses are situated nearby, as well as tennis courts, quad-biking, karting, and horse-riding; all of which can be organised with the help of hotel staff. In the Carmargue, guests can also enjoy horseback or 4x4 safaris.
