over a century ago in the Provençal village of Saint Remy, France that Van Gogh found himself so inspired by the light and surrounding landscapes that he created 142 paintings in one year. Today, this once quiet town remains a favorite among artists who mingle with tourists in a now cosmopolitan destination of world class restaurants and fashionable shops.
In the heart of it all lies the Hotel de Tourrel – a former 17th century palace where old world architecture and modern-day design have merged into one luxe hotel. The renovation of the structure, led by hotel founders Margot Stängle (architect) and Ralph Hüsgen (communications and marketing expert), now houses 7 spacious suites (generously converted from 24 separate rooms), a lounge terrace, rooftop pool, wine bar and nouveau Mediterranean restaurant headed by chef Benoît Fauci. As for the decor… the sleekly modern 1920s and 30s stylings of Eileen Gray abound, all of which play flawlessly among the occasional contemporary gem. Hope you enjoy the tour!
