St Remy de Provence Wine Fair

St Remy de Provence (13 Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence PACA)  hosts its Wine and Crafts Fair (Fête du Vin et de l’Artisanat d’art) 27-29 July 2018.

For over 30 years this pretty provençal town (linked to Van Gogh) welcomes its annual wine fair featuring wines from all over France, with New Orleans Jazz and plenty of opportunities to sample wines, local produce and arts & crafts. There is a parade around the town on the Saturday. One of the prettiest towns in Provence, south of Avignon. Easy access from Avignon and Marseille.

St Remy de Provence is in many ways a typical larger Provencal village with a good selection of shops, cafés and restaurants, tree-lined streets and a market square and twice-weekly market.

The local wines are Les Baux de Provence AC and Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

There is an excellent small hotel in St Remy de ProvenceHôtel Sous les Figuiers with a garden that is planted with 100-year-old fig trees.

Wander around the narrow little streets, discovering squares where fountains play, and the attractive boutiques and art galleries that make the town’s historic centre so lively. Sit outside at one of the many cafes and restaurants, enjoying their welcome while you refresh yourself with a drink or try the country cooking based on local products.

You’ll find a warm, friendly welcome in this charming little town, especially on market days and at the many celebrations and festivals throughout the year.Discovering Saint-Rémy-de-Provence also means enjoying the magnificent landscapes of the Massif des Alpilles, now classified as the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles (Alpilles Region Natural Park), with the town nestling at its foot. In this magical setting, bathed in sunshine for more than 300 days a year, you’ll realise why so many famous people have loved this little town. Office de Tourisme
